Things to see: @invis_insight


I've worked for more than 13 years, designing products for web ventures, from 3-person initiatives to medium-large industry. Strong Presentation and Negotiation Skills have been key to this work (in addition to the full monte; infrastructure, database design, core algorithms, scaling, backed and frontend frameworks, test-ability, compliance, and UI/UX + SEO).

I also design technology & products by drawing from a history of fabrication, prototyping, sourcing, and scientific research (applied physics). I am a practicing sculptor, and establish new product aesthetics via my own approach to engineering fluid-mechanical processes. From this work in water, I have built a broad & deep knowledge-base on the application of fluid phenomenon to industry needs.

I have lead successful small-capitalization stages, wrote grants & engaged program officers, developed teams and timelines, design of experiments, measurement, and business development.

comment Can reading [self-help] books aid in therapeutic treatment of the Narcyssistic rationalization pattern?
But, as an example, what appears to be your 'main' question: "Could [it] be functional to these subjects to read a book which tries to change their beliefs? At least could it be used to speed-up the therapy?"... is a non-question. The answer is naively "yes" and thus the question must focus on something more nuanced than this.

Pretty unclear. Lots going on; probably best to edit the content here, and result in changing the Question to an actual question. That you could not formulate a succinct question is indicative of the issues. You have a fine direction you're heading, though.

comment Why do we rely on others in dangerous situations?
"cognitively inferior" suggests a bias on utility, which is not founded. Your statement "we do not regard the other person (whether he is a friend or not [trust]) as a leader or superior being than ourselves" is not defensible. It sounds like you have a prejudice which is impairing your ability to make observations. I know that I won't win the upvote contest by challenging someone's bases, but I feel we are here to educate, not coddle.

comment Do we have a predisposition to view visual stimuli in a clockwise pattern?
I don't have a paper to cite for you, but this is a commonly-taught principle in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) studies

comment 432 Hz vs. 440 Hz frequencies: health and psychological effects?
@Memming I think it's important to consider if there is a root-article that is able to be considered scientifically, regardless of what kind of colloquial verbiage that has grown up around it. Sometimes untrained people can be inspired by worthwhile observations - we shouldn't be turned away because of their ability to consistently convey the observation by learned standards.

comment Reading vs. watching a lecture: which activity results in higher knowledge retention?
casually, i think it would depend upon the topic. I think there would be higher retention when watching a video on a physical technique, than to read about it.

comment Why do people talk fast in presentations when nervous?
Why would adrenaline make a difference here? Just to distract them from potential calm that could allow more-rational thinking
