Human behavior during the process of virtual inverted pendulum balancing in viscous environment is analyzed. The results of the virtual experiments are compared to the results of previous studies on so called dynamical trap effect. It is shown that the phase trajectories and phase variables distributions of the virtual stick motion under human control are similar to those of an oscillator under the presence of noise described by the dynamical trap model. Moreover, it is discovered that the
