Comments23/10/2016 #21 Harvey Lloyd"Heuristics" is where choice lies and success begins from a practical lifestyle of learning. I agree with the many points that are made here @Robert Bacal. The question for us to consider is whether the brain controls us or we the brain. I myself believe we have some level of the latter. Twenty years of inputs into a brain in a unique walk known as "you" creates a huge data set. Managing the data set based on the inputs is one set of issues and the need for "Heuristics" and once self aware (an area of self that is a challenge to achieve) we can develop intake filters we create to better parse the data stream.
Intake filters consist of values that we aspire to maintain within the social/professional envelope. When confronted with another human do i seek to understand "first" then be understood would be such a value or filter. When participating with a team am i focused on the outcome or the individual speaking. Developing habits that screen data a certain way is a our best chance to not pick up the bitter aspects of personal emotional challenges.
The faith part comes from the need to believe that if my filters are honorable, my interactions follow these filters then, the right outcome will be achieved. This belief has to come in spite of others actions where their filters may be more of a personal agenda.
From this personal perspective i would state that the earlier we become self aware of the need for these values/filters of interaction the less damaging data we imprint on our brain. Ultimately meaning that the imprints don't go away permanently but rather must be managed after we become self aware of our parsing values go in place.16/10/2016 #18 Robert Bacal#15 @Lisa Gallagher We definitely had that conversation about the inability to filter out noise. Normally, people "habituate", (get used to noise, particularly constant noise), but it seems you are less able to do that (sometimes?) We're also wired to "orient" or pay attention to change in our environments, again a clear advantage and necessity evolutionarily speaking. I'm guessing it's an anxiety issue but I'm not a clinician.16/10/2016 #17 Robert Bacal#14 Thank you Ian. If my recollection is accurate isn't Miller's law relevant to short term memory, and that stm and working memory (m-space) was considered a seperate "space/process" I'm a wee bit rusty here. My background (one of them is cognitive science, and I'm admitedly out of date.
In terms of neuro-science, my sense is that it's really in its toddler state, and that the application of what is being learned about the brain is still a ways away from being applicable to things like learning and memory enhancement -- ie. real world behavior. OOP. just noticed your links in the other post. I'll check those.16/10/2016 #16 Ian Weinberg@Robert Bacal The subjects of EQ, IQ, AI , neuro-data processing etc are at the core of intense investigation and research. It is very difficult to draw simple conclusions from this enormous area of study. My personal interest and expertise extends from the neurosciences and neurosurgery, pioneering and incorporating the science and applications of Psycheoneuro-immunology (PNI) to the development and application of corporate wellness, performance and leadership programs. To boot, I have also managed comprehensive neuro-rehabilitation teams. I offer you the following 2 links. The first is our corporate application and the second is the reference text used in the training of neuro-coaches. This latter text is pretty heavy reading. Part 2 however can be read as a standalone text. See therefore http://www.neuronostic.com/PromoSurge.pdf and for some light bed-time reading http://www.pninet.com/articles/Memory.pdf16/10/2016 #15 Lisa GallagherI thought I read this before, and I still enjoyed reading it again @Robert Bacal. I remember telling you I'm unable to filter out noise, like that from an A/C unit in a hotel room if it's rattling. It will drive my brain nuts all night. I've always had a hard time filtering out background noise unless it noise I've truly grown used to. My IQ is just a tad above average but my EQ is high. Personally, I can attest that I don't always think rationally because my EQ can over ride the rational part of my brain. However, it depends on the circumstances- there are issues that arise that require your EQ to kick in which allows one to be more rational and see the larger picture, if that makes sense? I would make a good mediator or coach because I'm able to see, think and feel outside of the box.16/10/2016 #14 Ian WeinbergThe amount of information which can be handled at the pre-frontal cortex level (working memory) at any one time is limited in accordance with Miller's 7+2 Rule. Further limitations reflect the pro-survival processes of deletion, distortion and generalization. And yes, habituation too (at the sensory level). But the comprehensiveness of perception and the processing of extrinsic sensory and intrinsic stored information is a function of the degree of integration of the individual. Islands of unintegrated networks have limitations within reality contexts. The more integrated configurations engage in a more comprehensive way with the environment and can therefore handle much more data (the integrated networks are greater that the sum of the individual unintegrated networks). Therefore subjective belief reflects configurations of integration which determine limits of data that can be processed. References available if so desired.16/10/2016 #13 Robert Bacal#10 @David B. Grinberg That 10% thing is a myth. On the capacity question, the analogy would be a computer with 2 megabytes of ram. It limits how much information can be dealt with at one time. HOWEVER, it IS possible to get around some limitations by using programming tricks...for example, using the hard drive for additional, but slower storage or working space.
For example, short term memory limits can appear to be defeated because we can learn to better use the available space.
One of the interesting things about AI work is that traditionally, there have been two different thrusts. One is to get a computer to solve things humans can, and the other is to have the computer process information the same WAY humans do. One is result oriented and one process oriented.
The idea with the latter is that we can use computers to model and better understand how humans process information.
I'm not terribly satisfied with this answer, but I'm tired.15/10/2016 #11 Randy KehoMr. Spock, of Star Trek fame, not to be confused with Dr. Spock, the famous pediatrician, would find this discussion rather amusing. Being half Vulcan and half human must have been a real bitch at times. Would that be logically speaking? I'm not sure. I would be the wrong person to ask.
I'm still working on filtering. I started with the female voice. I've got a long way to go. Live long and prosper @Robert Bacal15/10/2016 #10 David B. GrinbergNice buzz @Robert Bacal. I'm wondering if you think new advances in AI, computing and decoding the human genome will help unlock more than the average 10% of brain capacity which most individuals use? Also, is it that the brain has "limited capacity" or simply that humans don't know how to access full capacity?15/10/2016 #7 Robert Bacal#5 @Aurorasa Sima OK. That works for me. Perhaps my use of the word rational was not the best choice. I certainly agree with you that rational means using all the information that is available to you. It's been a while since I wrote the article, to be honest, but thanks for pointing this out.15/10/2016 #6 Robert Bacal@Fatima Williams posted a link to a Slideshare presentation on this topic. Can't vouch for the content, since there's a LOT of slides in the presentation and I don't have time to look at it just now, but wanted to make it available if anyone is interested http://www.slideshare.net/aoweiyang/you-are-not-as-rational-as-you-think?from_m_app=android15/10/2016 #5 Aurorasa Sima#4 Yes, that´s very close. They are more capable of making conscious decisions. Not influenced by others, past experience, fear, emotions.That´s "rational" to me. Based on facts and an unbiased, intellectual thought process.
In my opinion, rational does not assume you have all available information, but that you make a decision based on those available to you. Even assumptions can be part of a rational decision-making process, as long as they are unbiased.
A silly little example I just wrote about: People with a high EQ are immune to marketing triggers like creating a false sense of urgency, scarcity, made up value propositions and such.15/10/2016 #4 Robert Bacal#2 @Aurorasa Sima You hooked me in with that first one on the list. Would I be understanding you correctly if I paraphrased a bit and said you believe that emotionally intelligent people can make rational decisions because they have a better awareness of themselves and so are more able to separate their own biases and such from the external facts? Is that close?
I suppose the other question that pops into my mind from your comment is what constitutes rationality? I'm not sure I'm up to the challenge of answering that question. You?15/10/2016 #2 Aurorasa SimaMy opinion.
1. I believe emotionally intelligent people can make rational decisions. Not having all available information does not make a decision-making process irrational.
I agree that people with a low IQ generally are not able to make rational decisions unless they face a situation that is totally new to them (no triggers)
2. Fully agree multitasking-wise. If two tasks require the same cognitive resources, your brain will split it. Stanford University could prove that this leads to problems telling relevant from irrelevant information and ergo worse learning/understanding/production.
3. Yes, the brain filters and automates and it´s very generous in deciding which situations are "similar"
4. I like this post

Comments11/10/2016 #1 Harvey LloydI found the article interesting in its approach @Aurorasa Sima. But would offer a different side to Bob and Alice's cake dilemma. This was certainly a "Behavior Mechanics" way to address the issue. From a corporate perspective we have addressed the issue and avoided a top down micro management process. We placed Bob and Alice within a conundrum. But did we satisfy the underlying cause of the dilemma? Why did each want more than the other? These "Behavior Mechanics" styled management techniques tend to work but kick the can down the road. One fix begets the next which begets the next. The complexity of these processes becomes more and more complex with each iteration. Introducing Bob and Alice to problem solving skills and have them explore their greater needs would help them solve their own next issue and begin to spread the skills within the organization. I believe over time we become expectant of the mechanical fixes. More importantly because we deal only with the issue people have caused, and not the people themselves, trust starts to erode. The cycle repeats. Without any support of data i sense, these mechanical processes are how corporations have become the whipping post for what is wrong with employment/society. Good intention processes focused on the wrong issues.

Comments03/10/2016 #2 John ValledorWhere was the grand notion of EQ say, 50 years ago? Since it was not the trendy topic that it is today, does this mean that concept did not exist? Probably not.
In its pure sense, everyone [all humans] should express and recognize the notion of EQ.
Personally, I think this topic is a pariah.
With every passing day more and more articles are written about it. So much so that it is beginning to take on a"must have" facet that could be a disqualifier, a discriminator in the job hunt. Especially when the HR team determines somehow (via Voodoo, ouija boards, and peyote dens) that you don't possess the right amount for the position being offered.
I just hope this topic remains in the realm of aspirational qualities, like leadership, and does not turn into another litmus test that could disqualify fully qualified candidates when measuring is so fungible. At least the notion of IQ can be measured.
For the record, I did not lose my temper when crafting my comment here...just in case I get a negative EQ score from some as a result. LOL03/10/2016 #1 Harvey LloydEI is a label for man's search for truth in life. In the male gender we like to think that we don't have emotions, we are either right and you are wrong and/or i am just passionate. But i also believe that EI has two components. Your internal self and your external self. The internal EI is that which you feel as you deal with issues but dont display to others the fullness or depth of emotion. Many however express their emotions openly and publicly, no poker faces. My outward expression of emotions are what they are, loss of control. But the internal emotions impact our health, creative thinking and logic. I may not express my emotions externally but inside my guide is my emotional perspective. Great read.

Does he has the technical skills in place. Manufacturing in this era of globalization requires skills. Who is going to commit to the training. If businesses do will there be a reduction in corporate taxes from the current 38%?. How long will it take to achieve/train those individuals?. Will companies be able to wait while candidates are being trained?. Wouldn't they be losing business while waiting? If government pay for the training what about the student loan crisis will that be addressed?.13/09/2016 #42 Aurorasa Sima#41 That´s a great thought, @Henri Galvão. I thought about it too. I agree with your assessment of him being a "particular case". Can we say that particular cases cannot be emotionally intelligent?
Regarding the control of his emotions. I came to the conclusion that the way he deals with failure implies that he has control over his emotions. I´m not sure if being inappropriate is necessarily a lack of control. In this particular case, it might be the unwillingness to exercise restraint.
What say you?13/09/2016 #41 Henri GalvãoGreat topic, @Aurorasa Sima, and I really think it's high time we took a look at what it means to be emotionally intelligent.
I think it's important to make a distinction between different EI competencies, as explained by Daniel Goleman in his book Working with Emotional Intelligence. In Trump's case, there's no doubt he's highly motivated and has great leadership skills. On the other hand, he doesn't seem to be high on self-regulation (adaptability, self-control etc.).
And of course he's a very particular case because he's, most likely, a narcissist. The same could be said about Steve Jobs, and that's why it wasn't easy - at least for us, "outsiders" - to understand how a person who could sometimes be so unfortunately cruel and unethical, also have such a capacity for inspiring and persuading other people.12/09/2016 #39 Dale Masters#37 STUNNING!

Truth is a rare commodity these days, and as the old saying goes, I'd rather be slapped by a friend than kissed by an enemy.
Due to Project Mockingbird in the '60s, American media sources only parrot back what the corporate-controlled National Socialist State wants them to say. Today is 9/11...a PERFECT example of American media following a preordained script. And I must agree with the statement about money. It is a tool, nothing more...but in a world system that uses worthless fiat currency and where less than 1000 individuals hold more wealth than the other 7 billion, it is safe to say that the world system is psychopathic, self-serving...and completely out of control.10/09/2016 #35 Aurorasa Sima#28 I agree with you 100 %. It is like choosing .. what you said. Not being intellectual or well-read does not mean you can´t be smart, wise or clever.
Regarding your reference (the one you did not make):
What will Trump do when he finds out he neither has the personnel nor the money to deport ... how many is it? Given that the point of being illegal is trying to not land in a statistic it might be more than 12 million? He´ll have to step back from his promise or find another way to realize it.10/09/2016 #33 Aurorasa Sima#27 Oh, well, you know me and my sometimes naivety. One would wish the news media would see their job responsibility as more than just selling ads and airtime. I was VERY tired when I wrote this and just fed up by all of the BS I currently read on EI.
Predicting the downfall of someone for a lack of talent that he possesses in abundance just seemed rather silly and unhelpful. All the experts that kept telling us that this is not serious are not helpful. Ignorance and arrogance are part of what created the problem.

He is playing to that, much like Hitler did in a post WW1 Germany. NO...I am NOT comparing him to Hitler as that's way off base, but the circumstances are similar. Is he a good fit?

Comments30/08/2016 #15 Robert Bacal#13 David @David Lisle I took a quick look at the abstract you mention, and I don't think your interpretation is exactly what they are saying.

In any event, thanks for the comment.30/08/2016 #13 David LisleInteresting and quite useful to me in the face of what I just finished reading here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S038800011400151X. Briefly the article asserts that people who use expletives prolifically are smarter than people who don't. I think this kind of statement qualifies as an attempt to intimidate. Perhaps the rationale for wanting this to be true is subconscious wishful projection of the kind that says, "I can't like you if you are not like me." In any case I don't believe the groups analyzed are truly representative of the run-of-the-mill man or woman who may use an expletive every other word; not to demean anyone when I say this, but working in all male environments that are tough on the body would give them a different perspective I am sure.29/08/2016 #8 Mohammad Azam KhanA substantial list and writing on a significant topic @Robert Bacal.

I appreciate your reading and commenting my buzz!21/08/2016 #14 Ali AnaniGert @Gert Scholtz- - I enjoyed your reference to the source of energy for introverts and extroverts. This is new to me. As for myself, I find myself far less creative with groups than on my own. The paradox here is that I am classified as extrovert. I wonder if I am oscillating between extrovert and introvert states. Thank you for sharing this lovely buzz06/06/2016 #9 Kevin PashukIt would seem @Gert Scholtz that we share a fascination with the creative process. Bringing Introvert/Extrovert into the analysis was interesting with regards to how we process ideas, but it is very rare when creativity and innovation are the domain of an individual. As an introvert, I do process a lot of ideas internally, but ultimately need a sounding board to provide the checks and balances of sanity, insight, and new ideas I would never come up with on my own.02/06/2016 #7 Phillip HubbellAs an introvert, I would propose that creative thinking works better for me in solitude. The caveat is that the input of data derives from association and exposure to information in the past which surfaces in the alone time. The time spent in the group is less productive due to the distraction of the conscious present by the noise. It is a time puzzle. Expose me to the clatter and clutter, then isolate me to assess. Once I correlate what I have heard and seen, I can then be creative and structure the data into new ideas for presentation later. Wash, rinse and repeat…01/06/2016 #5 Emilia M. Ludovinovery interesting reading @Gert Scholtz, thank you for jotted down and shared with us. Sorry for the delay in my comment I was travelling from Netherlands to Portugal and I wanted to read it carefully as I found your ideas very interesting. especially because of my line of work. I agree with @Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC comment that introverts and extroverts -both need groups to spur on creativity. And to some extent, I also agree with your stance on your article, though I would like to highlight that also Extroverts need seclusion to be more efficiently creatives. It seems to me that your line of though as a lot anchored in the difference between Introverts and Extroverts. What about the difference of thought between creative and non-creative individual or creative thinking towards problem solving vs creative thinking towards artistic creation. :)31/05/2016 #4 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCNice share @Gert Scholtz. I'm inclined to agree that we all need groups (introverts and extroverts) - at some point - to spur on creativity. While each of us is uniquely creative, and have our past and present experiences plus research to draw upon, a diverse group can stimulate greater creativity, 'shake things up' as it were, and far more creativity is derived. Ideas, perhaps, none of us alone would have been inspired to think up much less develop.30/05/2016 #1 CityVP ManjitThe way I understand creativity best is to watch or listen to creative people. An example of that kind of person is John Cleese. Each time we listen to the creativity that works for any particular individual, we are learning one stream of creativity. There is the opposite approach which is to begin with the ocean of creativity and point to all the things in that ocean that remind us of creativity. The former approach of making creativity as individual a fingerprint as my own creativity helps me more - but of course this is at the level of my own creativity and not an opinion set in stone, unless of course my creativity potential is now ended by an object placed at that time above me called a gravestone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMpdPrm6Ul4
