Why The Customer Isn’t Always Right

The type of rationality assumed in economics is limited. One can generate solutions to theoretical problems, but the actual human behaviour is far messier. Each human has limits. Limits around what information is available, their own mind in processing that information, and the amount of time they have to think it through. Herbert Simon coined… [Read more]

What Is Your Attachment Style?

Securely attached love and trust quite easily and second naturedly. Anxious attached strive for intimacy with others but are rife with fears, anxieties and disappointments which tragically can make such worries a reality through misplaced, and counter-intuitive, passive-aggressive behaviour. Avoidant attached tend to avoid closeness because they feel too vulnerable. It is far breezier to… [Read more]

How To Get Luckier

‘Luck’ is rarely credited for successes or failures. If someone said they went on a date but it went badly because of “bad luck” we would think them self-deluding. If Bill Gates said he made his fortune because of luck, we would think him immodestly modest. (Although the date may have had a bad mood… [Read more]

Should You Go On A Media Diet?

The idea of choosing what media I let into my mind, for the sake of sanity, came into my mind from a rarely informing youtuber. It made sense to me. I have written polemics on the tropes of the news, and on the negative impacts of the freedom lacking internet before. In my media diet,… [Read more]

The Best Self-Help Advice

I am no fan of self-help. Mostly, I look for others to help me. ‘Self help’ is a weird genre because people learn to help themselves from someone else; it is inconsistent to say ‘self-help’ when it is other-help. The genre, along with self-improvement, refers to the refinement of an indivisible ‘I’ helping I, while… [Read more]

8 Proven Ways To Sleep Better

Sleep is complex. Our brains are never fully awake or asleep, instead, its assorted parts are dampened or firing always. So when you feel like you are asleep, you actually are in a way; and at different times dreams and reality can converge, for instance in the memory of a dream which feels real or… [Read more]

How To Be An Optimist

Would you rather have an optimistic doctor? Good question. You’d rather they had reason to be optimistic. If, by optimistic you mean they think everything will work out fine without consulting objective evidence, then no. Would you want an optimistic soldier? If they think the campaign is going swimmingly so reframe their situation as fine… [Read more]

Yes, Aliens Are Real

At one point in time to speak of different lands and of different beings across the water of The Earth was to be considered mad. If you spoke of inevitable continents and diverse creatures within reach of possible powerful ships, you would be deemed a time-waster. After all, if different creatures and continents did exist… [Read more]

On Metaphor, Sugar, Baby, Daddy, and Terms of Endearment

What do baby, daddy and other terms of relation or endearment mean? Daddy, baby, sugar, sweet, honey, sweetheart, darling, precious are poetic. These are terms of endearment. They do not mean father, baby child, pleasurable substances for your taste receptors, or an object you covet and may hide, in any literal sense. But they happen… [Read more]

The Fake Science of Extrovert or Introvert

We love friends, family, and lovers yet some of us find company oppressive. The chit-chat drain of entertaining others, and maintaining banter and good-humour by giving out smiles and laughs and obeying the law that you must make noises with the mouth in response to other noises to relieve the silence, is inessential and a… [Read more]
