  • Can you please elaborate on what you mean by how that’s dangerous? Do you mean that how we’re taught to apply critical thinking and proper research while being overconfident in those tools leads to poor beliefs because the methods may be flawed or based on a false premise? Or do you mean something else? I don’t think I understand completely.

    (Please note I’m a bit sleepy but also intrigued.)

  • without frequent use our brains simply lose the connection

    I just want to say that I’ve been learning an Asian language for over a decade and have retained almost all of it from infrequent immersion. I don’t know how or why, but it sticks!

    What I’m trying to say is that you shouldn’t feel discouraged because you think it’s meaningless if you’re not jumping in with both feet every day. Rather, you’re still making some progress even when dipping your toes in occasionally. Trust the process!

  • They may hallucinate but they’re less likely to lie for now. I can’t count the number of times I saw or heard some bullshit being told to customers to appease rather than help. And it irks me to no end every time I get a rep like that.

    I don’t blame the workers. I blame the corporate bullshit that actively encourages it by dangling bonuses and taking away if a customer doesn’t feel that their issue was resolved. Call centers suck ass for both customers and employees.

    How harrowing it is to hear someone a few cubicles away scream at one poor review by the end of the month that lost them a bonus for some bullshit that was out of their control after enduring so much abuse.
