Does your job match your personality? | Big Think - 2 views

  •  
    "Your personality will partially determine how good you are at your job, especially if you have a complex job that requires more than rote behavior. So are you and your job a good fit? If you're a creative person who is open to trying new things-openness being one of the Big Five personality traits-you're more likely to succeed at jobs that require novel solutions over efficient ones. On the other hand, if you're conscientious-another Big Five personality trait-you're likely to be better off in a management or administrative position."

Dogs Might Be More Rational Than Humans - 0 views

  •  
    "Dogs are "really good at learning from us, but they might, in funny ways, be better at learning from us than we are from ourselves," Santos, a cognitive psychologist at Yale University, told Live Science. They are "less irrational in following our behavior than humans are." Humans, on the other hand, can fall prey to a phenomenon called "over-imitation," Santos said. "Sometimes we imitate too much; we are so prone to trust others that we kind of copy the things we see them doing, even when those things other people are doing might not be so smart," Santos said."

As AI Makes More Decisions, the Nature of Leadership Will Change - 1 views

  •  
    "A shift from the hard to soft elements of leadership is not exclusive to the AI age. Meta-analytic studies reviewing 50 years of research suggest that personality traits such as curiosity, extraversion, and emotional stability are twice as important as IQ - the benchmark metric for reasoning capability - when it comes to predicting leadership effectiveness."

Synthetic Lifeforms are the Next Great Civil Rights Controversy - 0 views

  •  
    "authors state that proposals for synthetic personhood are already being discussed by the European Union and that the legal framework to do so is already in place. The authors stress the importance of giving artificially intelligent beings obligations as well as protections, so as to remove their potential as a "liability shield.""

Harvard finds certified green buildings improve both thinking and sleep - 2 views

  •  
    "The researchers found that compared to workers in the non-certified buildings, workers in the green-certified buildings had 26 percent higher cognitive function scores, reported 30 percent fewer "sick building" health symptoms, and saw 6.4 percent higher "sleep quality scores" (as measured by wearable sleep monitors). This research follows a bombshell 2015 study by the same group that found elevated indoor carbon dioxide (CO2) has a direct and negative impact on human cognition and decision-making - at CO2 levels that most Americans (and their children) are routinely exposed to today inside classrooms, offices, homes, planes, and cars."

Microsoft and other big names in tech are actively hiring autistic coders - 1 views

  •  
    ""They have a real passion for detail," Mark Grein, executive director at Specialisterne, said in an interview from Stamford, Connecticut. "They tend to be very good at following a process, improving a process, optimizing a process." SAP SE, the German software maker, has hired 53 workers worldwide since 2012 through its Autism at Work program and is aiming for 1% of its staff, currently at 74,500, by 2020. "We do have clear anecdotal evidence of business benefits from our pilot program," including gains in productivity, quality, customer relations, people management and innovation, said Jose Velasco, who heads SAP's autism program in the U.S."

Top CEOs Are Using Twitter More, Facebook Less | Re/code - 0 views

  •  
    "A new study from PR firm Weber Shandwick found that CEOs from the world's 50 most lucrative companies are using Twitter and LinkedIn more than they did two years ago, but have deserted Facebook completely. The study, which looked at social media use by CEOs running the top 50 companies on Fortune's 2014 Global 500 rankings list, found that 10 percent of those CEOs are on Twitter, up from just two percent in 2012. LinkedIn was the most popular network, with 22 percent of CEOs on the platform, up from just 6 percent in 2012."

    This reminds me of the statement I read a long time ago that went something like this, "Never give others the power to control your emotions. If you require others to make you happy, then they have control over you and you'll never be happy."

    1. This is the hardest to keep up on.
    2. Unknown. Although I thought a lot about it. I have no answer for how to maintain this as a routine. I've been able to do it for periods of time in the past, but it never permanently sticks. :-)
