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.

Please study Carl Jung's approach to dream interpretation

comment Why does munching sound unpleasant to most people?
@LarryM. Ecological Psychology succinctly describes the arhythmic concept of stimulus (as a highest-value aberration within the perceptual field). Rhythmic and arhythmic stimulus would only be of equal value for organisms with 'lowered' (uniform) discrimination. So perhaps misophonia is correlated with increased auditory discrimination?

@jona the mechanics of mastication are not rhythmic. Snaps and pops occur randomly in respect to jaws-up or jaws-down.

comment Can reading [self-help] books aid in therapeutic treatment of the narcissistic 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

Also a relevant question at our EL&U site.

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

comment What makes people like Abraham Lincoln step up to lead in times of danger?
I wonder that this is more about CogSci.stackexchange.com - since it is about the mentality of how people handle tough situations

comment Are armed offenders ready to use their weapons?
Every combat strategist knows that the best win is when you defeat the enemy with your mind. I suppose the study you seek would be a retrospective; probably quite clouded by how-far in the past the encounter occurred, the low quantity of such data being collected by a trained psychologist, and the infrequent reporting of such encounters

comment Are liars inclined to lie to themselves?
I have seen this, but it's anecdotal observations. It may be that those who do not lie to themselves are more ina sociopathic direction, since they exercise a kind of malice. 'Plain liars' are, in a way, innocent of that kind of connivery. Also, welcome to CogSci.SE

comment Gaining and maintaining viewer sympathy for an anti-social protagonist
@Randy I'm discussing how people perceive things, and thus generate sentiment for robin-hood-criminality.... not the reality of things.

comment What are the neurobiological mechanisms behind clumsiness
don't lose sight of the fact that your clumsiness may originate in your consciousness, and not be based in the biology. Do search, though

comment Gaining and maintaining viewer sympathy for an anti-social protagonist
@JensKouros no sorry, it's not an abstract and tested model - rather my and colleagues anecdotal 'field data' and contemporary interpretation. Hard to prove; easy to explain.

comment Does the person's walking say anything about the person's cognition?
Your question addresses the basic reason that Dance is-what-it-is: movement that we can interpret. Dance it elaborated walk (locomotion). If you didn't ahve to "get somewhere", but were still going to move, what would that movement look like?
