Every time you hear or read a new trick or a new result, test it against each of your 12 problems to see whether it helps.

4 ways of treating problems
Absolution: Ignore the problem and hope it either fixes itself or someone else solves it. Default.
Resolution: Either look to the past for previous solutions to the same problem OR identify and remove the causes of the problem. Satisfice.
Solution: Analyse using quantitative methods and / or experimentation to try to yield the best possible outcome. Optimise.
Dissolution: Eliminate the problem and prevent it from arising again by redesigning the system that has the problem or its containing system. Idealise.

Critical thinking is an unnatural act. We evolved to survive in a cruel world, not to play around with our hacks. To make things worse, we evolved in a herd, which means that we intuitively respect the authority of the leader. But we also have to be creative, so we have to respect ourselves first. Finding the right dose of self-respect is a crucial thing in creative work. Too little self-respect could destroy our motivation and creativity, and too much will interfere with our ability to estimate the value of our ideas, and can easily result in investing time, money and effort in worthless projects.

Noone is born a critical thinker, but almost anyone can become one. Think about what [Edward de Bono] said:

“The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar to new ideas. It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong than to be always right by having no ideas”.

转谈艺术。艺术当然要讲技术,不容易,要多下功夫。论技术,我认为艺术比科学重要。一位技术超凡的画家,想象力不足道,其作品可以卖得起钱。有大成的艺术家呢?单凭技术不足够,加上想象力超凡也不足够——不可或缺的是感情的表达。后者是艺术的主要困难所在。科学是不需要表达感情的。 - http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_47841af70102wca6.html

flexibility


Cognitive flexibility may have affected how people coped with the pandemic lockdowns, which produced new challenges around work and schooling. Some of us found it easier than others to adapt our routines to do many activities from home. Such flexible people may also have changed these routines from time to time, trying to find better and more varied ways of going about their day. Others, however, struggled and ultimately became more rigid in their thinking. They stuck to the same routine activities, with little flexibility or change. - https://theconversation.com[..]is-key-to-learning-and-creativity-163284

專家回答:這不容易,但還是有可能的。人際關系專家兼咨詢專欄作家April Masini說:“家長既要讓孩子繼續保持這種精神氣,又讓他們知道自己行為的後果,要在兩者之間找好平衡點。”她稱,家長可以通過具體的事例,來給孩子講述,在什麼場合、用哪些方法來質疑老師和長輩是OK的,還要解釋這樣做的可能後果。你這樣教育的目的,是讓孩子知道,有時候規則可以打破,邊界可以移動,但行為卻是會帶來風險的。 http://cn.wsj.com/big5/20170222/LIF145613.asp?source=rss

“Part of what is so interesting and surprising about our study is that a simple manipulation — just the way people think about a past event — is changing their conclusions about what they’re doing and whether they’re interested or not,” Niese said.

Instead it is the quality of the conversation that is important. That is, the back and forth, turn-taking nature that requires listening and responding. It’s what Hirsh-Pasek and her long-time collaborator Roberta Golinkoff refer to as a “conversational duet”, because “you can’t sing it alone”. In fact, another study found that if a conversation is interrupted by a phone call, the child does not learn a newly presented word, but will learn it if the conversation is not interrupted. - https://www.bbc.com[..]-that-affects-how-your-babys-brain-grows https://dq.yam.com/post.php?id=11656

Instead of repeating the mistakes of previous generations with heavy-handed tactics, let’ understand the psychological source of the problem. Ultimately, parents’ goal should be to help kids learn strategies for coping with overuse on their own so that they do what’s good for them even when we’re not around.

When a person is stressed, they use both their conscious memory and their subconscious memory to compensate for all of the stress. The switch from totally conscious learning to conscious+subconscious learning is triggered by mineralocorticoid receptors, which are released in response to stress. The switches are controlled by the amygdala, the part of the brain that's responsible for both memory and emotional reactions. There's a really interesting study by Schwabe, Tegenthoff, and Hoffken that talks about this, and you can read it here. Long story short: it turns out that when I said that I "operate well under stress" in college, I wasn't actually making that up! - https://dev.to/cassidoo/pursuing-passive-learning-1ego

* Spend as much time learning from your trading as you actually spend trading
* Manage yourself, not just your risk and your positions

直覺的奧妙 — Blink - https://thestandnews.com[..]%A6%BA%E7%9A%84%E5%A5%A7%E5%A6%99-blink/

1)  How does the person spend his or her free time?  Per Ayn Rand's observation above, what does he or she do for enjoyment?  

2)  How does the person respond to your successes?  Many people are willing to commiserate with you when you're down and elevate themselves in the process.  A person of genuine goodwill celebrates your successes and is happy for your happiness.

3)  What strong beliefs does the person voice and live through their actions?  Character means standing for what you believe in and living your beliefs.  Go along and get along might be comfortable, but commitment is what powers effective action in the world.

这里有一个原则同学们要记住:不重要的学术作品大可不读,但重要的要反复重读,读多遍。不要相信重要作品的简化阐释,因为作者究竟怎样想我们不可能从简化的阐释中学到。 - http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_47841af70102ux5w.html

Rarely will I get through every section of every book.  The idea is to create a kind of dialogue among the authors, identifying points of overlap and difference.  Very often, the ideas from one book will trigger ideas that have you scouring the other books for elaboration.  The mixture of ideas from several books will lead to a thought that is not contained in any of the books.  When you read in parallel, it's like being in the room while the authors are conversing.  The intersecting of ideas almost always stimulates fresh ways of thinking about (and applying) the topic at hand. - http://traderfeed.blogspot.hk[..]ding-in-parallel-becoming-better-at.html

How And Why To Keep A “Commonplace Book” - https://ryanholiday.net/how-and-why-to-keep-a-commonplace-book/

So is there a way to speed up how quickly we can comprehend a word? When we read our inner voice sometimes vocalises the words in our head, and some suspect that this might slow us down. Could banishing that voice make a difference? Not necessarily. Internal vocalising might be helping us to understand what’s happening, according to research by eye-tracking psychologist Mallorie Leinenger.

But the good news is that there is a way of learning to read faster, and that is to practise. Again, we are not just limited by our vision. What matters is how fast you can identify a word – a process that is faster when the word is more familiar. So the more you read, the faster you can get. - https://www.bbc.com[..]icle/20191129-how-to-learn-to-speed-read

Importance of finding out your Signature Strengths - http://traderfeed.blogspot.com.au[..]ature-strengths-and-trading-success.html

索托說:“你應該從改變行為做起,接下來,如果你能長期保持這種新行為,這種行為就會被鎖定下來。”他說,如果能獲得心理治療師的指導,你可以在幾個月之內看到持續的變化。你也可以學著自己管理你的性格特征,只是要花費比較長的時間。
那么,你應該從哪做起呢?加州德爾馬(Del Mar)的心理學家理查德‧萊瓦克(Richard Levak)表示:“首先,我們必須認識到性格中有哪些因素對我們構成了影響。如果我愛發牢騷,好爭辯,還有點多疑,我總是因為跟同事吵架,老是責怪別人而被解雇,那我就必須意識到得改變一下。”
萊瓦克說,這和糾正暴飲暴食這種壞習慣相似。要想減肥,你就得認識到自己什么時候以及為什么會暴飲暴食。萊瓦克博士表示:“如果你有戒心過重和好斗的傾向,你就要對自己說:‘好的,當我老板過來跟我說話,而我立馬感覺老板在挑我的刺,想要自我防衛的話,那我就是反應過激了。’讓自己冷靜下來,不要爭吵。”
不要把期望值定得太高。耐心一些。索托博士說,要把一種有意為之的行為變成習慣,需要花費很長時間。不要太擔心其他人的反應,因為你的變化通常是他們樂于見到的。

These 3 Hacks Will Make You Remember More - https://betterhumans.coach.me[..]will-make-you-remember-more-b30a3d9b3136

When trying to memorise new material, it’s easy to assume that the more work you put in, the better you will perform. Yet taking the occasional down time – to do literally nothing – may be exactly what you need. Just dim the lights, sit back, and enjoy 10-15 minutes of quiet contemplation, and you’ll find that your memory of the facts you have just learnt is far better than if you had attempted to use that moment more productively. - http://www.bbc.com[..]effortless-way-to-strengthen-your-memory

In animals, weight training appeared to promote the creation of new neurons in the memory centers of the brain. - https://www.nytimes.com[..]w-weight-training-changes-the-brain.html

The method works something like this: you use a familiar environment, such as your home, and walk through the environment associating information (like words or digits) you want to remember with various objects or scenery. In order to recall the digits in the right order, you simply have to do a mental walk through your mind palace. In Lu’s case, he devised an intricate story, and assigned images such as a chair, a king or a horse to two-digit combinations of numbers ranging from “00” to “99.” - https://www.zmescience.com[..]e-but-theres-something-that-comes-close/
