Drugging Einstein, an article on ADD and Dyslexia by S Conde

Drugging Einstein, an article on ADD and Dyslexia by S Conde | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

What if ADD and dyslexia are not disabilities? ADD and dyslexia are not diseases, they are differences in the way the brain processes information and the parts of the brain used to process information. People with ADD and dyslexia are not sick, their brains just work differently. A psychiatrist explained it to me this way. The ADD brain is actually older, from an evolutionary standpoint, than the neuro-typical brain. When we were hunter gatherers the ADD brain was necessary for survival, noticing everything at once, hyper alert, able to zero in on and focus on a singular detail in the environment. When we moved as a species from hunting to agriculture, the executive functions of the brain began to evolve. Executive functions deal with planning, verbal reasoning, inhibition, etc. The linear thinking mind became a distinct advantage in planning crop planting times and rotations for example."

Δεν υπάρχει μόνον ένα αλλά πολλά είδη νοημοσύνης. Και όπως δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε δύο ανθρώπους με πανομοιότυπα δακτυλικά αποτυπώματα, έτσι δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε και δύο ανθρώπους με τον ίδιο συνδυασμό απ αυτά τα είδη νοημοσύνης!

Have you ever wondered why people dislike auto-play videos? According to Liraz Margalit, it is steeped in history. 


A fascinating look at how human behavior plays a role in marketing. This is something that is vital if you want your products to sell. 


The post is interesting as well, because it is hosted on a website that does the exact opposite of the author advised. I already discussed this issue with one of the founders, but apparently they don't care about the UX. If you read the comments, you will understand what I mean.


A great article. Too bad that The Next Web doesn't walk the talk! 

Mike Donahue's curator insight, June 19, 12:23 PM

Every website that has one of those annoying "sign up" screens that pops up immediately after the page loads and before you've even read anything (that includes you TNW) needs to read this. A great article that explains how your desire to drive a visitor a specific action may in fact drive them to do the opposite.

 

@Liraz - The only suggestion I would make is that rationalization happens in the conscious, not the subconscious, mind.
