I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment Does co-ordination prevent people from arm-wrestling between their left and right arms?
Perhaps you could describe in more detail what 'coordination' you expect, and what different 'coordination' you are experiencing? As is it is unclear what you are asking. A more practical point, its physically very inconvenient to assess strength by arm-wrestling, let alone by self arm-wrestling. You might be better of e.g. lifting weights with both arms independently?

comment Is there a limit to how many skills a person can master?
Welcome to CogSci. We generally expect more scientifically rooted answers. Care to add some references to those statements? Additionally, even assuming the overly simplistic '10,000 hours of practice', what about maintaining a gained skill, what about conflicting skills, what about physiological limits, ...? In your defense, I feel the question is too broad and should be closed.

I don't see how this question is different from my previous one you link to? Did you read past the title? Closing it for now, I will reopen in case I misinterpreted.

comment Why does it take a lot of time and energy to seduce a girl?
A more narrowed down question could be on topic (given a bit of background research). E.g. do males enjoy sex more than females?

I see you are new to the Stack Exchange network. Each site usually has a defined scope of what is considered to be on topic. Please check out the help section prior to posting in order to find out what is on or off topic. Cognitive Sciences is a question and answer site for researchers, academics, students, and enthusiasts needing expert answers to advanced questions in the "cognitive sciences": I.e., cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, and psychiatry.
