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.[..]hree-powerful-measures-of-character.html

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。

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. -[..]ding-in-parallel-becoming-better-at.html

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.[..]2012/06/4-ways-of-treating-problems.html

什麼是思考方法? -
思考的必要態度:同情理解原則 -

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”.[..]and-creative-thinking-in-a-hackers-work/

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。 -[..]/dope-i-should-have-thought-of-that.html
