Goethe's Wisdom and Humor

   As we all know, Goethe is the most famous writer and poet in Germany, and also a world-renowned literary giant. In 2003, German TV 2 selected the 10 greatest Germans, and Goethe ranked third. He became famous in one fell swoop with the popular epistolary novel "The Sorrows of Young Werther", and established his status as a master in the world literary world with the poetic drama "Faust" written in nearly 60 years.

  In 1775, Goethe came to Weimar and served as the court privy adviser and other important positions. Outside of work, he often goes for walks in Weimar Park. Previously, he had published works such as the lyric poem "Happy Meeting and Parting" and "Song of May". Once Goethe was walking along a path in Weimar Park. The road is very narrow and only one person is allowed to pass. At this time, a well-known but very proud literary critic came to meet him. He once criticized Goethe's published works as useless. At this time, the two met on a narrow road, and they both stopped. The critic said arrogantly: "I will never give way to a fool!" Just the opposite." Obviously, the man didn't get the slightest advantage, but it highlighted Goethe's wisdom and upbringing.

  Goethe had a wide range of friends in his life, and there were many friends, some of whom loved to joke or even play pranks. One day, Goethe received a very heavy due letter (equivalent to the current "collect mail"). After paying the postage, Goethe opened it and saw that it was a large package of waste paper, with a letterhead with only one sentence attached: "My health is very good—your N." Goethe knew that this was a narrow-minded friend who was playing tricks on him. . With an idea, he quickly came up with a "punishment" method and sent a reply to this man. A few days ago, Mr. N, who is "in good health", received an overweight and underpaid mail package, which contained a large stone and a page of letter paper. A stone finally fell to the ground—Goethe." Goethe's counterattack "followed the same pattern" was not only decent, but also well-founded, making the other party speechless.

Moroccan football team: "The most familiar stranger"

   When I was still in college ten years ago, I led a sightseeing group of more than 30 Moroccan students. Before meeting them, my general impression of the Moroccans was that they are from North Africa but closer to the Arab world. They have religious beliefs, are used to worship, and are inextricably linked with France.   When I saw the real person, I realized that the North Africans in front of me were actually a group of children playing with each other and having fun in time. They were about the same age as me at the time. I have all kinds of nicknames and nicknames. During the process of taking them to Badaling, the Summer Palace and Houhai, two classmates and I, together with more than 30 Moroccan students, realized "cultural integration" and "world unity" in the small group to some extent.   During the World Cup in Qatar, I was surprised to find that the little-known Morocco team, which was eliminated in the group stage of the last World Cup, after miraculou

Zeigarnik effect

  As a freelancer, you have to fight procrastination every day. "I've made up my mind many times, but I just can't change it. Is it because I'm slow or slow?". In fact, many procrastinations are irrational. Many obstructions are imagined by myself. So distract, postpone, avoid confrontation. It's cool to procrastinate, and it's cool to procrastinate all the time, so I can't do it. Concentration is also related to physical strength. When the physical strength is exhausted, it is even more difficult to concentrate. You’ll tell yourself: I’m too tired to do this—okay, another perfect procrastination.   In 1927, Bruma Zeigarnik's senior research found that people are more likely to care about unfinished and interrupted work than completed work. This is the Zeigarnik effect. For example, we often don't care much about what we have got, but we will especially cherish what we have worked hard but haven't got. Therefore, the TV series will tell you
