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 Is there a lot of redundancy in written and spoken language?
Well, for now I did it for you ... Remember it the next time you ask a question. ;p It will get you clearer/narrowed down answers.

Focused question on how most people interpreted it by narrowing scope.

@timquinn You partially got this answer because you didn't phrase your question that clearly. Where I interpreted the 'speculation' of the usefulness in noisy environments to be an important aspect, others did not. Remember, keep your questions concise, focused and clear. To better differentiate from your newly asked question, please update this one.

It would also be interesting to see whether any work is done on the redundancy of spoken English. It probably better reflects realistic scenarios in which the speculation makes sense (noisy environments).

Where have you heard this? Did you look for additional information yourself prior to posting this? What did you find? What do you interpret to be a more 'developed' brain?

@timquinn Could you please add that extra relevant information into your question if it turns out to be the book you are talking about, also providing a link to it? Thank you.

Removed unnecessary "Thank you". Formulated title as question.

@vdv, please incorporate any relevant extra information in your question as well. Comments should only be seen as 'temporary'. The feedback you gave can easily be edited into your question.

@LitheOhm, I incorporated the question and dictionary.com link a bit better into your question. You can always roll back if I misrepresented the intent of them.

Better explanation of why the links are added.

comment Is there any study that models the interaction among assertive, passive, aggressive and passive-aggressive people?
@Fabio A. It might be worthwhile editing that (and any other relevant info) into your question. If you've already done the background reading, pinpoint exactly where you are stuck and why what you already found didn't answer your question.

comment What is the effect of imagining doing an exercise on muscle growth?
Well for starters what do they say that 'improves'? Maybe quote where you read that. How do they measure improvement?

@Spundun: Well it might already be too late now since you've gotten a good answer, but here are some tips for next time. As BenCole pointed out, it wouldn't have been too difficult finding the term tinnitus yourself with a bit of initial research. This could have lead you to asking one specific question and focus on that instead of the various slightly related ones you asked now.
