Subject: [ExI] some dismal facts about humans




My list of the worst things:

1 - the tendency of people to judge others and to judge issues quickly and in accurately

2 - the overgeneralization and over discrimination of the above conclusions

3 - all the unfortunate facts about our tendencies towards other cognitive errors

4 - the myth that we only use 10% of our minds actually seems rather accurate

5 - we only produce great results when we are pushed hard

BillW, your list of worst things is evidence that humanity has succeeded.  Nowhere on your list is brutal attack by revenge-seeking natives, cholera, crop failure, locust plagues, that sorta thing.  All of your list is way the heck up at the peak of Mazlow’s hierarchy, the self-actualization stuff.


Life… is…  gooooood…
