Top 10 Thinking Traps Exposed Our minds set up many traps for us. Unless we’re aware of them, these traps can seriously hinder our ability to think rationally, leading us to bad reasoning and making stupid decisions. Features of our minds that are meant to help us may, eventually, get us into trouble. Here are the first 5 of the most harmful of these traps and how to avoid each one of them. 1. The Anchoring Trap: Over-Relying on First Thoughts Propaganda 2.0 and the rise of ‘narrative networks’ George Dvorsky November 16, 2011 DARPA, the Pentagon's advanced concepts think-tank, is looking to take propaganda to the next level and they're hoping to do so by controlling the very way their targets perceive and interpret the flow of incoming information. The Pentagon believes that by engaging in 'narrative control' they can alter an individual's grasp on reality and the way in which they evaluate current events.

How to Criticize with Kindness: Philosopher Daniel Dennett on the Four Steps to Arguing Intelligently By Maria Popova “In disputes upon moral or scientific points,” Arthur Martine counseled in his magnificent 1866 guide to the art of conversation, “let your aim be to come at truth, not to conquer your opponent. So you never shall be at a loss in losing the argument, and gaining a new discovery.” Of course, this isn’t what happens most of the time when we argue, both online and off, but especially when we deploy the artillery of our righteousness from behind the comfortable shield of the keyboard. That form of “criticism” — which is really a menace of reacting rather than responding — is worthy of Mark Twain’s memorable remark that “the critic’s symbol should be the tumble-bug: he deposits his egg in somebody else’s dung, otherwise he could not hatch it.”

Who Runs the World ? – Network Analysis Reveals ‘Super Entity’ of Global Corporate Control Business Published on August 28th, 2011 | by Michael Ricciardi In the first such analysis ever conducted, Swiss economic researchers have conducted a global network analysis of the most powerful transnational corporations (TNCs). Their results have revealed a core of 737 firms with control of 80% of this network, and a “super entity” comprised of 147 corporations that have a controlling interest in 40% of the network’s TNCs. Strongly Connected Component (SCC); layout of the SCC (1318 nodes and 12,191 links). Node size scales logarithmically with operation revenue, node color with network control (from yellow to red).

Cooperative In short, a coop can be defined as "a jointly owned enterprise engaging in the production or distribution of goods or the supplying of services, operated by its members for their mutual benefit, typically organized by consumers or farmers."[4] Cooperative businesses are typically more economically resilient than many other forms of enterprise, with twice the number of co-operatives (80%) surviving their first five years compared with other business ownership models (41%).[5] Cooperatives frequently have social goals which they aim to accomplish by investing a proportion of trading profits back into their communities. As an example of this, in 2013, retail co-operatives in the UK invested 6.9% of their pre-tax profits in the communities in which they trade as compared with 2.4% for other rival supermarkets.[6] The International Co-operative Alliance was the first international association formed by the cooperative movement.

Claim Evidence Reasoning By far, the biggest shift in my teaching from year 1 to year 7 has been how much emphasis I now place on evaluating evidence and making evidence-based claims. I blame inquiry. Not inquiry in the generalized, overloaded, science teaching approach sense. Just the word. "Inquiry." influence operations ops, propaganda, deception, counterpropaganda see also: Behavioral Influences Analysis Center (BIAC) psychological operations (PSYOP)

Self-organization Self-organization occurs in a variety of physical, chemical, biological, robotic, social and cognitive systems. Common examples include crystallization, the emergence of convection patterns in a liquid heated from below, chemical oscillators, swarming in groups of animals, and the way neural networks learn to recognize complex patterns. Overview[edit] The most robust and unambiguous examples[1] of self-organizing systems are from the physics of non-equilibrium processes. Neuroscientists show ability to plant false memories The phenomenon of false memory has been well-documented: In many court cases, defendants have been found guilty based on testimony from witnesses and victims who were sure of their recollections, but DNA evidence later overturned the conviction. In a step toward understanding how these faulty memories arise, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can plant false memories in the brains of mice. They also found that many of the neurological traces of these memories are identical in nature to those of authentic memories.

Communication Theory/Propaganda and the Public Around the time of World War One and Two, Communication research largely focused on the influence of propaganda. One question that researchers sought to answer was: how can communication be utilized to create behavioral changes? Governments felt that if they were to function efficiently, they could only do so with the coordinated cooperation of their citizens. Through the use of propaganda, governments could ensure that a nation functioned to meet its goals, but could also lead to crushing individuals' ability to shape their own lives and their own consciousness. Research into this area greatly expanded mass communication research in the twentieth century.

Ive seen it, very interesting thanks . by gabalini Aug 18

The generalizations that you are making about Muslims are not accurate. There is a great documentary on the topic. You should watch it. by tor.nelson Aug 18

- That`s not easy when we talk about Islamists as they operate as soldiers of Allah, the one true God, witnesses to suicide bombers dont see a crazed madman/women, they see someone calm talking to Allah - Ashahdu-Anna-La-Ilaha-Ella-Allah-Wa-Ash… which means, I Bear Witness That There Is No God But Allah And That Muhammad Is His Messenger. Lets just analyse for a second : I know 100% that if I was as a boy dragged to the mosque and fed the qarans words all my life then I would be brain-washed, I would accept that there is but one god and muhammad is his messenger - when I hit my twenties all I will feel is hatred for non-believers. After the words of the qaran are fimly planted in my sub-concious, how could I feel any different ? by gabalini Aug 17

I see what you are saying but dont agree, sorry, the Bible says lots of things but Christians dont follow any of the bibles instructions literally where-as Islamists follow the qaran like an instruction manual of hate !, obviously you have moderate islamists who go about their business on a daily basis but they are also guilty of acceptance of the above, you dont hear of moderate muslims condemning their fellow Islamists and rightly so, as they would be beaten up or worse. If you can honestly say that the qaran promotes peace and tolerance to all religions and people then i`ll quite happily eat my hat. heres a small clippet for you: Those who disbelieve from among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures. (98:6) Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe. (8:55) by gabalini Aug 17

No. I don't think that at all. Extremists in EVERY religion give it a bad name. In Christianity the Bible advocates stoning women, that is pretty hateful and heinous. My theory is that religion is often a stand in for thinking... ie I don't have to decide for myself if "x" is evil cuz the Bible says it is; lack of independent thinking is the foundation for a cult. by bex411 Aug 17

You can make better generalizations if you draw a distinction between fundamentalist practices and religious practices. by tor.nelson Aug 17

Ok, shall we say Islam is an evil cult (after studying the qaran and its hatred there in and seeing the way Islams followers behave ) compared to all other religions ? by gabalini Aug 16
