We perceive the world of objects as essentially separate from the world of minds, making it possible for us to envision soulless bodies and bodiless souls.

I love all of Gladwell's analysis: I'm a fangirl. A friend says you can't mistake his correlations for causations, no matter how convincing he is. His connections between events are brilliant and he'll make you re-examine and think more deeply, but he falls back on pat advice: check your biases; listen with care to folks; know that your ability to spot liars is lousy. Even so, I keep feeling fascination. #selfhelp #thinking #history

Aimeesue Spot on! I love listening to him, but I disagree with him a lot. Some of the connections he makes, while interesting, are pretty tangential. 3d

Intelligence is not only the ability to reason; it is also the ability to find relevant material in memory and to deploy attention when needed.

In the economy of action, effort is a cost, and the acquisition of skill is driven by the balance of benefits and costs. Laziness is built deep into our nature.

Third Malcolm Gladwell book I am reading this year. It's fascinating how he finds these simple topics and manages to change our paradigm with unusual yet compelling arguments. Blink is a very interesting read about first impressions, auto-pilot responses, profiling and bias. The book won't give you a guide in how to use the "blink method", it instead raises awareness about it calling for further introspection of oneself about first impressions.

Guys...I‘ve only read one book in print this month. ONE. While I‘ve listened to several via audiobook on my commute, I‘ve only finished one in print. This has never happened. And I have several really good books going, books I would normally enjoy, but I simply. Can‘t. Focus. Can‘t concentrate. It‘s killing me!!! #RealLifeLitsy #LitsyConfessions

C.Perone I'm having the same problem 😕 3w
cathysaid @C.Perone I‘m sorry. It‘s so frustrating! Seems like I‘m lacking oxygen! 3w
C.Perone @cathysaid Extremely frustrating! Hopefully, for both of us, things get back to normal soon 🤞🤞 3w

I love me some Alan Jacobs. Reading this spiritual follow up to his awesome Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction.

I'm in the middle of library checkouts. I finished my last book and I haven't requested my new haul. Why do I feel this way when I have 1000s of books (most are children's books), almost 200 not read. I think I'll reread John Grisham's Skipping Christmas or Passion According to Carmela on my Kindle. Choices. Choices.
