Blink Estimation | Dan North & Associates
[This article has been translated into Russian by Denis Oleynik.] Experienced delivery folks can have surprisingly good instincts for macro-level estimation, as long as we are careful to manage blind spots and cognitive biases. This can be an important tool in early project investment discussions, and can remove roadblocks where people are uncomfortable or unwilling to provide estimates.…

Abstraction, intuition, and the “monad tutorial fallacy” | blog :: Brent -> [String]
While working on an article for the Monad.Reader, I've had the opportunity to think about how people learn and gain intuition for abstraction, and the implications for pedagogy. The heart of the matter is that people begin with the concrete, and move to the abstract. Humans are very good at pattern recognition, so this is…

The Biggest Myth In Quantum Physics
Quantum physics is fascinating in part because of how different the behavior of the quantum Universe is from our everyday experiences. Everything can behave as a wave or a particle, depending on what you do to it; the Universe is made from indivisible quanta; we can only predict the probabilities of an outcome, not an individual outcome; quantum physics is non-local in both space and time; and its effects are most visible on only the smallest scales. It's arguably the weirdest thing we've ever discovered about the Universe.

And yet, we couldn't help but add ourselves into the equation, perhaps due to the difficult-to-define terms of "observation," "measurement" and "interaction." Take ourselves out of it, and all we have are the equations, the results, and the answers that the physical Universe gives. Physics cannot answer questions about "why" the Universe works the way it does; it can only explain how it works at all. If you're interested in the fundamental nature of reality, ask the Universe questions about itself, and when it tells you its secrets, listen. Anything else that you layer atop it was put there by you, not by the Universe. Avoid that temptation, and you'll never fall for the greatest myth about quantum physics: that it needs an interpretation at all.

INFP • Der Heiler - Charaktertest.net
INFPs machen etwa 3 bis 4 Prozent der Bevölkerung aus und zählen zu den Idealisten. Dabei sind sie vermutlich die idealistischsten Idealisten, die man finden wird. Ihr größtes Anliegen ist es, die Welt zu einem besseren Ort zu machen. Darüber hinaus sind INFPs echte Menschenfreunde. Sie haben eine intuitive Begabung im Umgang mit anderen und sind daher meist beliebt und haben weniger Probleme Anschluss zu finden als andere introvertierte Charaktertypen.
