Stuart Firestein, Author of ‘Ignorance,’ Says Not Knowing Is the Key to Science

Stuart Firestein, Author of ‘Ignorance,’ Says Not Knowing Is the Key to Science | Creativity & Decision-Making | Scoop.it
Stuart Firestein, author of ‘Ignorance,’ insists in an interview with Casey Schwartz that being certain is highly overrated.

 

Katherine Stevens: I like his attitude about admitting that we don't know everything and looking for opportunities to learn that you or your profession were wrong.

 

From the article:
"....contrary to popular view, scientists don’t really care that much about facts. ...  Whatever fact you seemed to have uncovered is likely to be revised by the next generation. That’s the difference between science and many other endeavors. Science revels in revision. For science, revision is a victory. ... the joy of science is that it’s about revision."

Sleep is critical to learning and especially remembering what we have learned. Today's society is plagued with over medicated, over scheduled, over technology centered children who are not sleeping. No wonder learning disabilities are on the rise.

Being Nice to Yourself Increases Creativity | The Creativity Post | Creativity & Decision-Making | Scoop.it
Treat yourself as you would treat a friend and become more creative.

 

When you write, draw, play a musical instrument, or brainstorm, are you as accepting of your creations or ideas as you would be of a friend's? Most of us are not. We criticize ourselves ... what if, just if, we tried to be as nice to ourselves as we would be to our friend. Perhaps this would remove some of the barriers and let our natural talents reveal themselves.

Do You Suffer From Decision Fatigue?

Do You Suffer From Decision Fatigue? | Creativity & Decision-Making | Scoop.it
The very act of making decisions depletes our ability to make them well. So how do we navigate a world of endless choice?

 

Decision fatigue helps explain why ordinarily sensible people get angry at colleagues and families, splurge on clothes, buy junk food at the supermarket and can’t resist the dealer’s offer to rustproof their new car. No matter how rational and high-minded you try to be, you can’t make decision after decision without paying a biological price.

 

The more choices you make throughout the day, the harder each one becomes for your brain, and eventually it looks for shortcuts, usually in either of two very different ways. One shortcut is to become reckless: to act impulsively... The other shortcut is the ultimate energy saver: do nothing. Instead of agonizing over decisions, avoid any choice.
