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.

... and what I always wonder, can you overdo it? (That's what RPGs often feel like to me.)

comment Do high heels increase female attractiveness in men only through indirect means?
You indirectly asked two questions, "how can we", but the question title asks "does it increase attractiveness". Could you please clarify whether you are interested in just the process or also the result? Generally we advice to stick to one question per question, but I don't see any problem combining the two as long as it is made more clear.

comment Does the ability to manipulate your environment affect the type of intelligence?
I'm afraid I can't help you out, but you could bump this question by editing it, taking Jeromy's comment into account. Perhaps you find the answer yourself. :) Don't forget you can also answer your own question.

This is on-topic. Removed the question which was asking about that.

"Is this a defined/known phenomenon" A broken mp3 player? :) P.s.: This is on-topic here, but the question will be received better if you try googling for a bit and incorporate those findings in it.
