Human beings are funny. They long to be with the person they love but refuse to admit openly. Some are afraid to show even the slightest sign of affection because of fear. Fear that their feelings may not be recognized, or even worst, returned. But one thing about human beings that puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly within. Sigmund Freud (via psych-quotes)
The Significance of Your Home: Dr. Orit Stieglitz, Ph.D. A trip to Krakow, Poland with her father in 2010 captivated Dr. Orit Stieglitz.

She is currently the director of the Bardejov Jewish Preservation Committee, a nonprofit organization with a mission of preserving and restoring the historical Jewish communal properties in the town of Bardejov, Slovakia.
CIO IT Leadership Interview with Dan Pink by Tom Catalini Daniel Pink, author of 4 bestselling books, talks with Tom Catalini about his new book To Sell Is Human and how its lessons apply to CIOs and IT Leaders. We cover a wide range of topics in this 30-minute interview. We talk a lot about the “softer skills” that CIOs and IT Leaders need to survive and thrive in today’s changing world. We talk about how the social sciences can inform our ability to influence others – to increase IT budgets, attract talented IT staff, and to position IT more strategically within an organization. We also talk about specific actionable items like crafting effective email subject lines in order to get attention to our messages, and how “emotionally intelligent” signs can express or invoke empathy on the part of its readers. Small tweaks can make a big difference in our ability to move others. All of this – what Dan calls “non-sales selling” is crucial skills for the CIO to possess, and for any IT Leader or IT Professional to develop.
Cognitive Neuroscience and Reading
Will Smith on the Law of Attraction Will Smith gets it. He understands the law’s or prosperity and how it is possible to manifest anything you want into your life at a moments notice. It is important for you to realize that once more and more of humanity awakens to understanding these very simple and basic concepts it will become easier and easier to create the very same results within yourself and within your own life. I seriously commend Will Smith for talking about these concepts on national television because it is only when celebrities public icons begin to endorse this type of thinking will it become mainstream. And when it does become mainstream you will see humanity as we know it change it’s collective consciousness on a global scale making us not a United States, but a United World.
Tali Sharot: The optimism bias Are we born to be optimistic, rather than realistic? Tali Sharot shares new research that suggests our brains are wired to look on the bright side — and how that can be both dangerous and beneficial. Tali Sharot studies why our brains are biased toward optimism. Why you should listen to her: Optimism bias is the belief that the future will be better, much better, than the past or present. And most of us display this bias. Neuroscientist Tali Sharot wants to know why: What is it about our brains that makes us overestimate the positive? She explores the question in her book The Optimism Bias: A Tour of the Irrationally Positive Brain. In the book (and a 2011 TIME magazine cover story), she reviewed findings from both social science and neuroscience that point to an interesting conclusion: “our brains aren’t just stamped by the past. They are constantly being shaped by the future.” In her own work, she’s interested in how our natural optimism actually shapes what we remember, and her interesting range of papers encompasses behavioral research (how likely we are to misremember major events) as well as medical findings — like searching for the places in the brain where optimism lives. Sharot is a faculty member of the Department of Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences at University College London. “Hope isn’t rational, so why are humans wired for it?” Tali Sharot Psychologists have long been aware that most people maintain an irrationally positive outlook on life. Tali Sharot—one of the most innovative neuroscientists at work today—takes this a step further. Optimism, she shows, may in fact be crucial to our existence. In this absorbing exploration, Sharot takes an in-depth, clarifying look at • how the brain generates hope and what happens when it fails • how the brains of optimists and pessimists differ • why we are terrible at predicting what will make us happy • how emotions strengthen our ability to recollect • how anticipation and dread affect us • how our optimistic illusions affect our financial, professional, and emotional decisions With its cutting-edge science and its wide-ranging narrative, The Optimism Bias provides us with startling new insight into the workings of the brain and the major role that optimism plays in determining how we live our lives.
