104 SAVED IDEAS
Our cognitive resources are one of the most valuable individual and collective assets we possess.
Cognitive kindness is extending a generosity of spirit toward others' minds and one's own mind. It starts from valuing our individual and collective cognitive abilities - to reason, to understand, to imagine, create, dream, enact.
Being kind to the mind depends on understanding how our minds work.
For example, studies show that people often overestimate how transparent they appear to others. In one study, participants induced to lie overestimated the extent to which others could tell they were lying.
Fears can keep us safe throughout our lives. We lock our doors at night and check for ticks after a hike. But fears can also hold us back - especially at work. We may wonder which valuable ideas got left behind because we couldn't find the courage to speak up.
There is nothing wrong with being afraid, but fear should not rule us.
The emotion we feel when we see a fire is the same feeling we have when we need to have a difficult conversation - it keeps us safe.
We will never stop being scared in this world. Fear doesn't make you weak. But if we give fear power in our lives, it can stop us from doing what we're supposed to do, say what we're supposed to say, and be who we're supposed to be.
We can create monsters of our fears in our heads.
Being an authentic person means having specific opinions and values, and people who have different values will not like what you say or do.
To overcome the fear of being your authentic self:
When you have to do something difficult, ask yourself these questions to determine if you're impulsive or need to speak up.
When some people think of clowns, they picture brightly coloured hair, big smiles, and lots of laughs.
Others find clowns creepy with evil intentions hiding behind a cheerful, gruesome mask. The intense fear of clowns is called coulrophobia.
At the forefront of modern-day clowns are Joseph Grimaldi and Jean-Gaspard Deburau who excelled at making people laugh, but in real life, Grimaldi died as a penniless alcoholic and Deburau murdered a boy in the street.
They were not unusual. John Wayne Gacy, a professional clown, turned out to be a notorious serial killer. He used to say "A clown can get away with anything." Since then, the perception of the clown seems to have taken a turn.
People may also feel uncomfortable with clowns because the painted-on and exaggerated face pose a false expression, and that breeds distrust.
Sigmund Freud called this disconnect "uncanny". This "uncanny valley" is something computer animators and robot creators have difficulty with.
The Marconi system made a radio link between systems, which was the size of a building. Eventually, people put up a radio system at a high point in the city, then those with the right kind of radio could talk to the high point.
In essence, there was only one cell, even though it wasn't cellular in any sense. But the amount of data you could send depended on how far away you were. The desire was for these cells to get closer together, leading to the invention of the cellular system.
Phones need to be close to the base station for a good signal. Many cell towers mean you can talk to the one that's closest to you.
What is amazing about the development of cellular systems is that it automatically switched which base station the phone talks to as its location changed.
It is not certain which technologies developed now will be used in 6G networks, but the following are possibilities:
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is our ability to identify, determine, and manage our emotions as well as the emotions of others in order to manage our thoughts and actions.
Being able to relieve stress, communicate effectively, and empathize with others is a part of emotional intelligence since it is a branch of social intelligence.
It is important that we cultivate and expand our understanding of what emotional intelligence is because it brings so many benefits into our lives: it helps achieve goals and build communication with different people at different levels.
Emotionally intelligent people are more cognitive and productive. Alongside this, it also includes an increase in one's job performance and leadership skills that may lead to success.
Cultivating one's own emotional intelligence is a lengthy process and it is does not happen in an instant so concentrate on self-awareness:
