Feeling Like An Expert Has An Ironic Effect On Your Actual Knowledge

Feeling Like An Expert Has An Ironic Effect On Your Actual Knowledge | Brave New World | Scoop.it

Think you’re an expert on biology, literature, philosophy or anything else? Read on…

 

‘Know-it-alls’ don’t know as much as they think, new research finds.

The more people think they know about a topic, the more likely they are to claim that totally made-up facts are true, psychologists have found.

In the study, 100 people were given a general knowledge quiz about personal finance.

They were also shown a list of financial terms which were mostly real.

Mostly. But not all.

In fact, three terms were made up: ‘pre-rated stocks’, ‘fixed-rate deduction’ and ‘annualized credit’.

People who thought they were financial experts were more likely to claim they knew all about these three totally bogus terms.

Doctors Protest Big Pharma's Out of Control Greed Which is Bankrupting Ill Patients

Doctors Protest Big Pharma's Out of Control Greed Which is Bankrupting Ill Patients | Brave New World | Scoop.it
Americans diagnosed with cancer are at risk of losing their life savings because cancer drug costs are escalating almost as fast as the worst forms of the disease, according to a Mayo Clinic medical journal article decrying these costs signed by scores of nationally known oncologists.

“In the United States, the average price of new cancer drugs increased 5- to 10-fold over 15 years, to more than $100,000 per year in 2012,” the article said. “The cost of drugs for each additional year lived (after adjusting for inflation) has increased from $54,000 in 1995 to $207,000 in 2013. This increase is causing harm to patients with cancer and their families.”

Empathy, Kindness, and Maturity

Empathy, Kindness, and Maturity | Brave New World | Scoop.it

When we experience empathy we feel what we believe are the emotions of another.  Empathy promotes prosocial behavior. For social beings, negotiating interpersonal decisions is as important to survival as being able to navigate the physical landscape.

  

Empathy motivates individual behavior that aids in solving communal challenges as well as guide group decisions about social exchange. Its influence extends beyond relating to someone else’s emotions, it correlates with an increased positive state and likeliness to aid others.

Childhood Trauma Leads to Brains Wired for Fear

Childhood Trauma Leads to Brains Wired for Fear | Brave New World | Scoop.it
Last week, a report by the University of San Diego School of Law found that about 686,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect in 2013.

 

Traumatic childhood events can lead to mental health and behavioral problems later in life, explains psychiatrist and traumatic stress expert Bessel van der Kolk, author of the recently published book, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma.

 

Children’s brains are literally shaped by traumatic experiences, which can lead to problems with anger, addiction, and even criminal activity in adulthood, says van der Kolk. Sound Medicine’s Barbara Lewis spoke with him about his book.

"Conservative brains" are wired for more fear based reactions than liberals. Does this mean that conservatives suffer from more childhood neglect and emotional abuse than children raised in liberal families?

Rob Duke's curator insight, June 3, 12:20 AM

Consider the source, but the message may be relevant within the context of White Collar Crime.

Keep in mind the idea that President Eisenhower warned about the Military-Industrial Complex in his farewell address.  You can also refer to C. Wright Mills' work on White Collar Crime.  Mills is known for his work on the Military-Industrial Complex.

Jay Fulk's comment, June 3, 8:14 PM
This is just such a sad situation and it really has become an epidemic among our military forces. When suicide deaths are outweighing all other forms of death, including combat, you know that the military has a huge problem on their hands. The question is, what on earth do they need to do about it? What is the causation behind it all? Like the article stated, we can't just say in a blanket statement that they all of PTSD. That has been proven incorrect, as some of these soldiers haven't even seen combat yet. One insight that I have on this matter is the way the military ranks their people. I really think that being an enlisted soldier definitely increases the chance of suicide over a commissioned officer. I know that PTSD does play a large role among soldier suicides, but there has to be other factors out there that the military is simply missing or overlooking. I have no real answers, but I hope and pray that this trend can, an will be reversed.
