  1. and then divide your score by the amount of times you've taken the test
  2. I'm so screwed.
  3. It's when your "big picture" thinking is accurate enough as to provide, intuitively, the "details".
  4. I think that it's all a matter of hormones and how they effect growth. I'm no neurobiologist but I think we all understand the effects that chemicals like cortisol have on us. A single stressful event can affect us in seemingly unpredictable ways, years later. I can only speculate that if a child was repeatedly exposed to stressful events, to go to bed night after night with feelings of fear, sadness, loneliness, etc., that the negative feelings would have a more permanent pathway in the brain. How does this relate to the notion that we should be "nice"? If we are repeatedly burdening a child with undue stresses, those "hand on stove" moments that we all have; the heartbreak of your first rejection, celebrating graduation, a death in the family are less profound. As a society, I personally believe, that it's better that we not desensitize children so as not to truncate their empathy before they've experienced something for themselves. Now you also asked why you should do it to other peoples' children and to that I can't really say anything. I would argue that shouting at or tripping anyone that you don't know in public is as bad or worse than expecting someone you don't know to respect your children.
  5. It's an endless quest for dopamine. I'll take it however I can get it.
  6. everyone has their limit
  7. Look at everything you do at your job through the lense of "what will make my boss happy?" Especially at larger companies, some ass-kissing is usually standard.
  8. 43% Intellectual Some people live to eat. Intellectuals live to think. 20% Rebel A rebel is someone who knows what he wants and how he wants to do it, and it’s never the way it’s supposed to be done. 17% Visionary When a Visionary gets an idea in his head, he takes it and runs with it.
  9. I have three simple steps to success; Repress, repress, repress.
  10. Your question is a bit loaded but I do think that treating people commonly with SNRI's or absolutely inundating others with strong hypnotics like seroquel is a very good method of treatment. The drug companies would say that they were just correcting what was imbalanced. They argue that your personality isn't changed by the drugs (speaking of SNRI's), rather you are less anxious toward human interaction.
  11. I feel like I'm always in a conversation with myself-- I was under the impression that we call this our conscience? Over time my ability to do this has gotten better and sharper, I can have makeshift conversations with people I know well, sort of like testing out what I'm going to say. I can even get pictures in my head of what their likely body language is going to be and how they may change their tone of voice or roll their eyes, etc. Does anyone see a correlation between this ability, or rather inclination, towards self-dualogue and memorizing songs lyrics, poetry, speeches, etc?
