It's unclear if the idea of 'translation' from one personality framework to another is a meaningful concept. A score on any given personality factor represents some weighted combination of measures - usually endorsement of questionnaire items like "I am the life of the party", etc. As such, every factor score is a unique variable that probably doesn't ...

I would disagree with @Krysta: the distinction between system 1 and system 2 processes goes far beyond that of cognition with/without emotion: it's a complex debates that's been going on since the 70s (in it's current form, it's echoed in a wider debate going back centuries). For the sake of brevity, let me resort to bullet points. For psychologists, Evans ...

The Neurological Engineering Framework does not explicitly state a mechanism for memory. There is no "hard-drive" in the brain for easy retrieval and access. Rather, memory is captured in the connection weights between neural populations and the dynamics of the network. In the Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning example, linked to in the previous question, ...

Neuroanatomically speaking I think Kahneman may be talking about the "hot" and "cold" executive function pathways (this wikipedia article is fairly informative on the subject). Hot executive function is thought to involve affect or reward processing, and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex is generally thought to be crucial for this. Cold executive function ...

Regarding the first question: It is well documented that emotions guide/modulate "higher" cognitive processes. A more specific theory of how this could work is, for instance, Antonio Damasio's somatic marker hypothesis. Additionally, I'm not so sure emotion and "cold" cognition can really be categorically seperated, seeing as they share a lot of the same ...

Here is the illustrate of both equation To make them visible at same time, I changed 100 to 1 and set memory strength as 1. They look alike.

Given a sequence of numbers, one can always make the case that the next number is always 42 (or whatever number you want) by fitting a $N^{th}$ degree polynomial to the sequence. Potentially what you are looking for is the The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences, although I am not sure there is anything programmatic about it.

Mental disorders, which are fundamentally undesirable phenomena, can be both environmentally and innately caused. There are both neurological components as well as environmental components almost exclusively sourcing from childhood. In the same way, a "thinking machine" can have the same undesirable problems. I imagine the "neurological problems" would be ...
