I’ve noticed lately that my mind has been wandering a lot so I wanted to see how attention works and how to manage it better. It turns out a lot of us have wandering minds and struggle to stay focused. In fact, when we’re reading, our minds typically wander anywhere from 20 to 40 percent [...]

Frontiers | Sameness and the self: philosophical and psychological considerations | Frontiers in Perception Science

In this paper I examine the concept of cross-temporal personal identity (diachronicity). This particular form of identity has vexed theorists for centuries – e.g., how can a person maintain a belief in the sameness of self over time in the face of continual psychological and physical change? I first discuss various forms of the sameness relation and the criteria that justify their application. I then examine philosophical and psychological treatments of personal diachronicity (for example, Locke’s psychological connectedness theory; the role of episodic memory) and find each lacking on logical grounds, empirical grounds or both. I conclude that to achieve a successful resolution of the issue of the self as a temporal continuant we need to draw a sharp distinction between the feeling of the sameness of one’s self and the evidence marshaled in support of that feeling.

Some basic ways we misjudge situations and people. Good to remember as we go through day-day.

Karen Bowden's curator insight, February 10, 10:23 AM

1. We trust our memories, even though they are often wrong.

2. We let our expectations decide what we're experiencing.

3. We feel losses more strongly than gains - which can lead to poor decision making.

4. We are highly prone to stereotyping people, even when we consciously try not to.

5. We are not great at predicting odds and probabilities, but we don't realize it.

Your memory is a wily time traveler, plucking fragments of the present and inserting them into the past, reports a new study. In terms of accuracy, it's no video camera. Rather, memory rewrites the past with current information, updating your recollections with new experiences to aid survival. Love at first sight, for example, is more likely a trick of your memory than a Hollywood-worthy moment.
