Everyone's going crazy 4 this online color quiz. It's insanely difficult | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

KukuKube is addicting.


The online quiz tests your ability to differentiate shades of color. It starts out simple enough with four big squares and one shaded an obviously different hue.


The key is to be quick, because if you wait too long, the game will end after 60 seconds and score you lower.

Why Is Learning So Hard?

Why Is Learning So Hard? | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Have you ever tried really, really hard to learn something new, but it seemed like the harder you tried, the more difficult it was to learn?


The good news is that it probably wasn't your imagination: you might have actually been trying too hard. As backwards as it sounds, a new study confirms that "over thinking" a problem can make it harder to solve.

Can Happiness Be Learned? Here's How "Happify" Helped Me Turn Happiness into a Habit

Can Happiness Be Learned? Here's How "Happify" Helped Me Turn Happiness into a Habit | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Happiness is strongly associated with others. No matter how hard we try to find happiness in simple things and also help happiness emerge from within ourselves, happiness will never be that strong if it is not associated with the presence of others.

 

Your relationship with other people and the level of interaction you have with them is what dictates to a huge degree how happy you will feel in your everyday endeavors. Your family, your friends, your girlfriend, your spouse, your colleagues and even strangers are shaping on a daily basis the design of your happiness.

One of my first thoughts after coming across these illustrations was “how have I never seen this artist’s work before?”, because they are freaking amazing.


Few too many artists today have the courage to tackle important social commentaries with their art. But Spanish artist Luis Quiles has undoubtedly broken this mold with his series of illustrations that depict a relevant and unfortunate reality for our world today.

How To Find Happiness In Today’s Hectic World

How To Find Happiness In Today’s Hectic World | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Economics tells us that more choice is better. And for most of human existence that has been true.


But research is showing that more choice is not always better. Overflowing email inboxes, 500 television channels and 175 different kinds of salad dressing at the grocery store don’t make life drastically better — it’s paralyzing. 


Here’s Barry Schwartz, a professor at Swarthmore College and the author of the bestseller, The Paradox of Choice:


The standard way of thinking about this is that more choice will help some people and hurt no one. But it turns out that when people have too many options, instead of being liberated by all these choices, they’re paralyzed. They can’t choose at all. And if they overcome paralysis, they make worse decisions.

Google wins patent for wristband that could treat CANCER | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Craig Allen Keefner's curator insight, March 20, 11:17 AM
  • Patent details a wearable that could target substances in a wearer's blood
  • This substances could be proteins linked with Parkinson's, or cancer cells
  • It would then 'modify or destroy' targets by transmitting energy into blood
  • This could include infrared signals, a radio-frequency or acoustic pulse
  • Scientists in the life sciences division of Google X laboratories are using human skin in their research to develop the wristband
  • Wristband could also work with pills that cause unhealthy cells to light up 
Courtney Bonner's curator insight, March 25, 12:56 PM

If this wristband ends up being approved by the FDA, it could be a major change for the medical field. Cancer is obviously devastating and ruins too many lives worldwide, so it would be awesome to see this wristband save the world.

8 Ways to Get More Done While You Sleep

8 Ways to Get More Done While You Sleep | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Sometimes it feels like there just isn’t enough time to get everything finished. From the time you wake up until the time you go to bed, it can seem as if the entire day just flew by.


An unfortunate side effect of this stress is that many people shirk their responsibility of sleeping. Instead, they choose to forfeit that vital time for an extra few hours of typing at the computer or reading another document.


But what if you didn’t have to say goodbye to sleep in order to be productive? What if you could utilize your sleeping hours to actually get chores and tasks done?

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

We can be tactical in our schooling. The traditional advice on learning has been to “study hard,” in a quiet place and with the same routine, yet that doesn’t say much about what to specifically do.


But pupils today can change the way they study to exploit the brain’s quirky learning processes, using the strategies revealed by memory and learning research.


While that science is still maturing, “it’s at a place now where it can give you a specific tactical plan,” Carey said. ".

Laughter really is the best medicine. I mean, we can see it all around us. We see children in the play area, running around laughing and smiling and living in the moment, while their parents sit on the side, full of the stresses of day-to-day life and only the occasional smile breaking their otherwise serious faces.


People on their death beds often say they wish they had laughed more. Don’t be that person! We could all do with a bit more laughter… And you’re about to find out why!

How to Ask for (and Get) Everything You Want

How to Ask for (and Get) Everything You Want | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
The best way of getting what you want is thinking about your request before you actually make it.

The big reason many people fail to get what they want is that they are too afraid to ask or they view their requests as all-or-nothing gambits—instead of a series of negotiations and compromises.

But there is a middle ground. Here are strategies to help you begin the “asking” process and avoid becoming upset if things don’t go exactly as planned.

18 Signs of High Emotional Intelligence

18 Signs of High Emotional Intelligence | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

“Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.”

Despite the significance of EQ, its intangible nature makes it very difficult to know how much you have and what you can do to improve if you’re lacking.


And unfortunately, quality (scientifically valid) EQ tests aren’t free. However there are some sure sighs that can show you have a high EQ.


1. You have a robust emotional vocabulary

2. You’re curious about people

3. You embrace change

4. You know your strengths and weaknesses

5. You’re a good judge of character

6. You are difficult to offend

7. You know how to say no (to yourself and others)

8. You let go of mistakes

9. You give and expect nothing in return

10. You don’t hold grudges

11. You neutralize toxic people

12. You limit your caffeine intake, etc.
