comment Does a short nap improve learning efficiency?
Naps longer than 30 minutes can let the person sleep into deep sleep stages, causing "sleep inertia" upon awakening. This state is not conductive to learning

comment How to recognize people with high need for cognition?
An introvert with high need for cognition reminds me of an Myers-Briggs INTP or INTJ personality type. Those types share the NT (rational) archetype that can be recognized quite easily by looking at a choice of vacation (ex: engineers, scientists, computer guys are much more likely to be NT type than teachers and nurses). Men are twice as likely to be the thinking type than women.

comment Can emotional IQ be learned?
I'm looking at this article on EI, and it mentions that it is more of a skill and knowledge than intelligence, and as such it should be possible to learn it and get better at it: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment What is the scientific term for unexpected, spontaneous dream recall?
Over the past couple years I've noticed that this kind of phenomenon happens with random real life events too, like recalling a street or place in a childhood town. Unlike events listed in the involuntary memory article (eating cake triggering childhood memories of eating cake), there's absolutely nothing I can think of that can be considered a trigger for this kind of memory recall phenomenon

comment What drives users to play Reddit's “The Button” game?
I'm interested in how people pick the time to press the button. Somehow this button game seems to me to be similar to the "prisoner's dilemma" game played on the global scale.
