Re: A Jacob Mention

From 2016 on I agree, as around that time everything became politicized. I might be misremembering, but it seemed like prior to that a lot of socioeconomic and philosophical discussions seemed to avoid excessive politics, and even politics people disagreed over politely. To my recollection the firs...

Re: Error's never ending errings

Regardless, being temporarily excited is... well temporary. That simply is not a reliable solution for the next several decades of my life as there is no chance I am going to bother jumping around every time I want to sit down and read a book. Maybe it gets you !0% of the way there. That is so much...

Re: Error's never ending errings

I have no actual plans or strong desires of what to do at that point other than "not work". I can write a huge list of things which I want to do... In fact, I have written those lists. I have had a few 4+ month breaks in my career and none of it happens. Well, it's a tough nut to crack. S...

Re: Error's never ending errings

What are you trying to motivate yourself to do? You don't feel interested in much of anything in general or is it more specific than that?

The dunning kruger effect runs the opposite direction. Dumb people think they are smart and smart people think they are normal.

People can learn to live well on less, but the whole renaissance man thing is a strategy for high intelligence individuals. You aren't going to get someone with an IQ of 85 to play accountant one day and refrigerator repair man the next.

Re: Alternate Investing/Trading Styles

You can look at what other investors are doing. So looking at insider trading or hedge fund ownership for instance. Unfortunately you don't know if or how they are hedged. Special situation investing is kind of a subsection of fundamental analysis, but it might be off the beaten path enough for you....

Re: The Road Goes on Forever--Sometimes in Circles

If I could GET up, perhaps I could take a cold shower. I thought you meant that you were languid had brain fog and are just plain useless for the first 3 hours. People often tell me that they aren't awake yet or aren't awake when they first get up and that is what they mean. You literally don't get...

Re: The Road Goes on Forever--Sometimes in Circles

Is there anything you can do to wake up faster? I wouldn't suggest stimulants. Maybe put on some fast paced, exciting music, do something to get your heart rate up, or try a cold shower.

Re: Bullshit Ability as an Honest Signal of Intelligence

I wonder how it relates to the agreeableness personality trait. I'd guess that it would gravitate to the extremes of the bell curve. The most agreeable using it to keep the peace and the least agreeable using it to compete.

Re: Bullshit Ability as an Honest Signal of Intelligence

;) what is the utility of that? If they are smart you know that will be good at all kinds of things. So since it's cognitively demanding you will probably assume that they are better at deception without a study. If you try to use deception ability to determine intelligence you run into the problem ...

I think a Pareto principle analysis would be useful. What 20% of what you are doing online is most harmful? What 20% is most beneficial?

Re: Health modeling

I'm curious if anyone has ever estimated how much of their self-reliance can be completed with one arm, or I actually broke a bone in my right hand about 3 years ago. It didn't slow me down too much as far as self reliance. The main problems it caused me were writing and using a mouse. Some time sp...
