A 2300-Year-Old Antidote to Stress

A 2300-Year-Old Antidote to Stress | The future of being human | Scoop.it
An ancient philosopher revealed the secret of being healthy and happy at work.

Via Jose Luis Yañez
Dionne's insight:

A good reminder about the humaness of being human (I just learned that this concept is called  'quiddity' from philospher Duns Scotus who defines it as the invisible essence shared by members of a group - contrast with 'haecceity' which is about the unique properties of an individual - and I heard about these obscure terms in turn in Bruce Hood's article on Essentialism in the book THINKING, Edge 2013) and that while everything is new, nothing is either. That was a long way to say we're still dealing with the same old things, aren't we?

This Neuroscientist Exposes Every Lie You've Been Told About Drugs Since You Were a Kid

This Neuroscientist Exposes Every Lie You've Been Told About Drugs Since You Were a Kid | The future of being human | Scoop.it
People have these unbelievable views about drugs. We are a wealthy country, and we spend a lot of money on science to find the right answers about drugs. We have the truth, but it's not being shared because law enforcement, politicians, parents, and even scientists have an interest in keeping the public unaware. I'm trying to say, "Be prepared to let evidence dictate what you think."

Great to hear of actual situations where adaptive leadership has resolved a deep rooted issue. Mobilising people to find their own common ground and build bridges far more effective than previous efforts.

No Battle of the Sexes, our Brains just Wire Differently

No Battle of the Sexes, our Brains just Wire Differently | The future of being human | Scoop.it

Women can't parallel park and men can't communicate with emotional intelligence. These common stereotypes get used as ammunition in the so-called battle between the sexes.

 

But, a new study by the University of Pennsylvania provides support for these (often unfair) standards.

 

Previous studies have looked at brain size; men's tend to be around 10 per cent bigger than women's, and composition; men have more white matter in their brains, which is linked to motor skills, while women have more grey matter, which is linked to sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, and speech.

 
Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Dionne's insight:

Are differences in the brain a result of nature, or nurture or both? Interesting to learn about but my concern remains as ever to value similarities and differences and be aware of our personal biases in assessing which qualities are 'preferable'.
