  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept19Post.mp4 Very few human decisions are logical. Most people very much like to believe we are logical, but those same people would struggle in a class in formal logic. At the same time, ALL of our decisions are based ON logic. What the heck does this even mean? Logic is a structure to handle inputs and outputs. If X is greater than 3, and Y = 2, then X is greater than Y. Logic is based on conditional statements. But when you are hungry and standing at the all you can eat buffet, you may not think you are choosing log
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug22Post.mp4 Socrates and Marcus Aurelius were two different guys from two different times. One guy was a Greek philosopher. One guy was an orator and a Roman Emperor. But they both had the same idea about the human thought process. Socrates believed that everything everybody believed was wrong. And he could prove this. This is where they get the Socratic method from. By asking enough simple and well placed questions, it's very easy to PROVE that any idea anybody has is false. Of course, eventually Socrates started
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr08Post.mp4 One of the curious things about being human is we think we are logical. We all believe we make logical choices and decisions. And those who disagree with us are NOT logical. They are irrational, emotional, crazy, etc. But according to most psychological and neurological research, our conscious brains are NOT in charge most of the time. This is the basic idea behind Cialdini's research. Cialdini is the guy who came up with the idea of Authority, Social Proof, Scarcity, etc. And through his research, and plen
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar16Post.mp4 Holding a strong frame is a very necessary skill. One might say it's THE most important skill. Socrates was murdered for proving that all the goofs in charge couldn't "prove" anything they thought was a logical reason for being in power. Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius noted that EVERYTHING is opinion. One dude famously came up with the basic idea that EVERYBODY is governed by the ancient law, "might makes right." This might not seem to be true, especially in a polite society. But if you tune your brain to see thi
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov29Post.mp4 A good way to win arguments is to take the long game approach. Most people have plenty of ideas they believe are true. But they couldn't defend them to save their lives. Since pretty much EVERYBODY is like this, nobody really needs to defend their ideas. They just need to present their ideas against their other ideas. Most arguments are really no more than verbal fights. The idea of an old school "argument" where two people carefully explore each other's ideas in hopes of creating a much more robust idea rarely
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov08Post.mp4 Metaphors are very helpful, and they are also very dangerous. They are helpful as they ease the transmission of ideas from brain to brain. They facilitate communication. They don't need to be accurate. So long as everybody has an internal idea of what they mean. We all have plenty of shared experiences. But these shared experiences are very hard to articulate. For example, say you see a cute girl across the room. You start walking over, but then you lose your nerve. So you slightly shift your traj
  7. Some things you can learn relatively quickly. These are things with more of a binary level of skill. You can either do them, or you can't. These are things like driving, tying your shoes, making a sandwich, etc. Some skills have no upper limit. For most of us, learning how to cook is a binary thing. Once you learn how, you stop worrying about it. Sure, you might pick up a few new skills, learn a few new recipes, but for most of us, once you learn to cook, we don't normally think of practicing our cooking skills on the weekend. If you were a master chef,
  8. Socrates is one of the most famous dudes who ever lived. But he's also kind of curious. For one, he never wrote anything. All we know about Socrates comes from Plato. Plato wrote conversations between him and Socrates. So everything we know about Socrates has been filtered through Plato's brain. Most suspect that Plato's early writings were pretty close to Socrates' thoughts. But as Plato become more of a philosopher on his own, he shifted to his own angle. Another reason Socrates is interesting is he was put to death by the authorities. Forced to d
