  1. I do sometimes. A change of scenery can help.
  2. I'm in disguise
  3. I think what men want most of all is to be what is stereotyped as 'alpha': to be authoritative over other men - a leader, to be confident, assertive, successful, to 'win' in confrontations, to not be taken advantage of, to be popular. Also I think they want to be perceived as funny and intelligent.
  4. :D I hope it's sturdy enough too
  5. Introverted female - 76
  6. So I take it from the game releases this will not be backward compatible with either 3ds cartridges or downloadable games?
  7. Larger city definitely. For the reasons you mentioned, and also better employment opportunities, better public transport, more restaurants and shops that are open late at night, better services in general, more convenient living. From my experience, small towns are also more prone to corruption and more dangerous under the surface. It's very difficult to be heard or make a change of any kind, as no one wants to rock the boat.
  8. Yes, but that also means only 20% of men can get one while the other 80% have to aim lower. You can want something, doesn't mean you can get it.
  9. This sounds the most interesting to me and I can also find it most easily. I would say 300 pages.
  10. I greatly enjoyed this, though while reading it I thought it was a bit outdated and the world had moved on to more rational ways of thinking. After the recent election results, I think it's, sadly, more relevant than ever.
  11. That's an odd comment, you come across as extremely emotional on this forum, which leads me to the answer to your question: while I do think men in general are slightly less emotional than women in general, I also think the emotions they usually experience more often and the way they express them are not stereotypically recognized as emotions, therefore giving the appearance than men are very stoic. So while you may have women who are more likely to cry when hearing a sad story, while men would be more unaffected, you also have men who are more likely to react violently when they are angry. Different emotions and different manners of expression. But overall, I would say it's a pretty even split between overly emotional and relaxed people.
  12. INFP - pffffffffft
  13. I do have a set of guiding principles that are very personal to me, but it's difficult to identify where they originate. Reasoning is certainly involved, but I'd say it's more tied into understanding the different moral options that exist and fleshing out the set of ideas to follow. Part of them are probably sourced in empathy, a reaction to another person's state of mind in different circumstances as well as my own. But the more general higher level principles are just personal values informed by each person's worldview. I do consider ethics important when making decisions, though not as a basis, but a necessary condition. It used to be the most important factor in my framework, although lately it's sharing the first place with truth.
  14. Okay, thank you. I misunderstood.
  15. I'm skeptical about anyone being able to read the type of book suggested from fields they know nothing about in a month; unless they just stick to topics they're already familiar with, which would defeat the stated purpose.
  16. I haz Solar Beam on both Venusaur and Exeggutor
  17. My interest would depend on the book chosen, though I'm extremely skeptical about the concept.
  18. The highest increase was 1960 to 1990s, and even after the change, the percentage continued to grow in the short period until today. Is your position that the obesity problem has not become more serious over time or that it is not currently an issue to be addressed?
  19. Did you miss the previous 10% increase before the change and 5% increase after?
  20. 1998 to be exact. Although I doubt that accounted for the whole difference, we can look at statistics in the two time periods before and after the change: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/hestat/obesity_adult_07_08/obesity_adult_07_08.pdf - 13.4% in 1960 to 23.2% in 1994 - 30.9% in 2000 to 35% in 2011
  21. There may be extreme exceptions, but for the vast majority of people, that's the rough equation, even if it's not down to the exact same decimal every day. By knowing someone's gender, age, height and weight you can get a good approximation of their daily caloric requirement. Up to 1990, only 15% of the US adult population was obese. In 2010 this percentage rose to 30%. Did human biology change in two decades or did our caloric intake increase in the modern world, where fast food is abundant, cheap and easily accessible and daily life requires less physical exercise?
  22. Finally!
