comment Why a person may have a temptation to do something unrelated when doing especially important thing?
+1, very relevant question! I personally know that the best time to clean one's room, tidy the desk or go for a snack is precisely when the rational brain schedules an important learning activity!

comment How does language change the understanding of a complex concept?
Just a thought: some of the best scientific articles I read were written using more or less common language with technical terms sprinkled here and there. This is in contrast to articles where I can understand 1 word in 7, and in most cases that word is not a noun. Reading your question, the word Noesis comes to mind: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noesis

comment Does introducing an element of play, hunt, or competition make feeding more rewarding?
Fantastic answer! I had no idea humans valued products of their own creations so much more than those of comparable amateurs. It took me a while to realize that contra-freeloading means the opposite of freeloading.

comment Is StackExchange.com Addiction Dangerous?
Stackexchange sites are still relatively new. Sites like hubpages.com have bigger audience, and bigger incentive to write (more badges, plus affiliate revenue). I was writing on that site for quite some time. I think the addiction is due to ranking numbers and social interaction. people like to "grind stats" :)

comment How do people visually recognize their own reflection?
Very interesting! I did notice that with the exception of several people, I did know how most of them looked like before the experiment. So it may very well be the case of different groups of neurons firing.
