Flashcards can be a powerful learning tool, but they can also be a waste of time.
A mental map is a first-person perspective of an area that an individual possesses. This is a type of subconscious map that shows the individual what places look like and how to interact with them.
Every individual has their own mental map, a large and a small one, wherein the former is used to recall towns, states, and countries; while the latter is to navigate smaller areas like your home, or the way to your favorite cafe. We subconsciously use our mental maps to plan all of our activities.
Our predictions usually seem to fall towards extremes, either too optimistic or too pessimistic. We underestimate how bad things can be in the short term, and how much better they can eventually turn out to be in the longer run. This leads to bad decisions, laughably wrong forecasts and predictions and a lot of confusion.
A reasonably optimistic person is a little cautious, a little cynical, and expects surprises, setbacks, bewilderment and disappointment.

Due to factors such as ‘analysis paralysis’, many people are unable to resolve a problem, feeling uncomfortable and experiencing confusion and obstacles, falling into the state of indeterminacy.
Some people take the problems head-on even if they don’t understand them fully, and others pretend that they understand, but do not.

This fallacy occurs when a person makes a threat of physical or psychological violence against others if they refuse to accept the conclusions offered. It can also happen when a person claims that accepting a conclusion or idea will lead to harm or disaster.
Children are more prone to this fallacy when they say, "If you don't agree, I'll punish you!"
When living difficult times, people feel the need to know that they are safe and they mostly try to find this safety in the articles they read, the news they listen to and the people they love.
However, it is also during these times that authors write down less or more well-documented opinions. And this is something you should definitely pay attention to when reading an article.
