The Narcissism of ADD & ADHD – ADD, ADHD & Executive Functioning Coach Image courtesy of imagerymajestic/ FreeDigitalPhotos.net Individuals with ADD and ADHD have a strong tendency towards narcissism. I speak from personal and professional experience. We have a tendency of looking at the world through our eyes and failing to see it from other people’s point of view. This is one of the major reasons why there’s a strong misunderstanding of ADD and ADHD. I am not suggesting that individuals with ADD and ADHD are intentionally narcissistic, but I am saying that it is common amongst us ADD and ADHD folk. So how do you tell people that this isn’t being selfish? With my clients, I always ask them to look at the bigger picture.

Radical Behaviourism and Society | Warm Little Pond Here is yet another entry for the Rational Skepticism Science Writing Contest. Please give it a read and, if you like it, vote for it! Also, I may have failed to mention, the general topic the essays must address is “What area of scientific research do you think will prove to be the most important by the end of this century, and why?” By Mr. B. As this metascientific position claims that behaviour is caused by its relation to the environment through a method of selection by consequences, then the question of free will and determinism is necessarily raised. Radical Behaviourism The notion that psychology should rely on objective measures, as opposed to the subjective approach of introspection, was outlined in John B. These intervening variables, Skinner believed, were not necessary in order to understand behaviour. Gilbert Ryle described the use of intervening variables as an explanation for behaviour as a category mistake (Ryle, 1984). Determinism and Free Will Values and Morals Conclusion
Brain Waves And The Deeper States Of Consciousness Every part of your body vibrates to its own rhythm. Your brain has a unique set of brain waves. In neuroscience, there are five distinct brain wave frequencies, namely Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and the lesser known Gamma. Each frequency, measured in cycles per second (Hz), has its own set of characteristics representing a specific level of brain activity and hence a unique state of consciousness. Beta (12-30Hz): Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning. Alpha (7.5-12Hz): Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation with the eyes usually closed and while day-dreaming. The following chart shows the EEG (Electroencephalography) graphs of the four major levels of brain activity. The Alpha-Theta border, from 7 to 8Hz, is the optimal range for visualization, mind programming and using the creative power of your mind.

Umberto Eco’s Antilibrary: Why Unread Books Are More Valuable to Our Lives than Read Ones by Maria Popova How to become an “antischolar” in a culture that treats knowledge as “an ornament that allows us to rise in the pecking order.” “It is our knowledge — the things we are sure of — that makes the world go wrong and keeps us from seeing and learning,” Lincoln Steffens wrote in his beautiful 1925 essay. And yet the contour of what we know is a mere silhouette cast by the infinite light of the unknown against the screen of the knowable. That’s what Lebanese-American scholar, statistician, and essayist Nassim Nicholas Taleb explores in a section of his modern classic The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable (public library) — an illuminating inquiry into the unknowable and unpredictable outlier-events that precipitate profound change, and our tendency to manufacture facile post-factum explanations for them based on our limited knowledge. The writer Umberto Eco belongs to that small class of scholars who are encyclopedic, insightful, and nondull. HT Bobulate
How to understand people with borderline personality disorder - by Taylor Ibanez Taylor Ibanez's image for: "How to Understand People with Borderline Personality Disorder" Caption: Location: Image by: I view my reflection through a filter. There are times I see beauty. The unattractive angles of my face and the disgusting details that are truths will be used against myself to validate why you had lost interest. "I knew it all along, you really weren't into me..." You have just become a cold, superficial monster. It works temporarily. A test. A test to see your expression that will validate what I suspected all along. It just so happens you were a really nice person and I fell in love with you for an hour or so. I wanted to reveal myself internally. That was my first mistake. You reacted normally. After I reflect on the drama and you're left wondering what went wrong, I feel that pain again. I wait for your call. I have just created a scenario to be abandoned. It worked. Standing in front of the mirror, viewing my reflection, I pull back a tight-nasal-breath from my sinuses.

3D Printed Heart Saves a Child's Life - Technology News 3D printing is getting more and more new applications every day. Although it looks more suitable for industrial manufactures, the latest application of the 3D printing process is regarding medicine. If we have to be more exact – heart surgery. Roland Lian Cung Bawi of Owensboro was born 14 months ago and has the misfortune of having four congenital heart defects. The life-saving heart surgery was held at Kosair Children’s Hospital in collaboration with engineers from the University of Louisville. The idea of using 3D printed model of a human heart came to the mind of Philip Dydynski, radiology director at Kosair Children’s Hospital. The Rapid Prototyping Center created a model that was 1.5 times bigger than the original child’s heart. Erle Austin III, a cardiothoracic surgeon, was able to create a surgical plan based on the scale model together with physicians from the University of Louisville. Roland’s heart was repaired on February 10th, 2014 at the Kosair Children’s Hospital. Google+
