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

Your appearance determines whether you can be studied

   Everyone has a love of beauty—scientists are no exception.   In May 2021, a study published in "Nature Plants" (Nature Plants) found that those beautiful flowers have more chances to become the research objects chosen by researchers. In other words, appearance not only affects finding a partner, but also affects whether one can become a subject of research.   In fact, not only appearance, but also many factors will cause researchers to be unable to treat all research objects equally. The sense of existence of different species is really different, and the well-known species have a higher chance of being studied. Everyone has probably heard of the koala (Phascolarctos cinereus), but how many of you know the less popular but more endangered Queensland hairy-nosed wombat (Lasiorhinus krefftii)? There are more than 5,000 papers on koalas that can be searched on Google Scholar, and 616 related pictures on Wikimedia Commons; while papers on Queensland wool-nosed wombats are less

How Gates and Jobs compete

   Competition is the norm in the business world. Many people even use war as a metaphor for business competition. As master leaders, Apple founder Steve Jobs and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, how do they handle business? What about competition issues? Let's take a look at the four strategies summarized by the author in the book "Strategic Thinking".   The first strategy is the "puppy tactic". The term “puppy tactics” comes from Jean Tirole, the 2014 Nobel Prize winner in economics, and Zhu Fudenberg, a master of economics. It means to make yourself as harmless as possible, to keep competitors completely unaware of your intentions, and even to make the market unclear about your true intentions through camouflage and misleading.   Being undervalued by the market and competitors will give you an edge when entering a new field.   Jobs was a tough entrepreneur. However, he is also a master at employing puppy tactics. For example, Jobs adopted this strategy when he w

"Digital Japan" left behind

   In October this year, Japan Post Group launched the "Future Post Office" plan, which will use digital technology to eliminate customers' impression of inconvenient post office services.   In this plan called "Future", customers can use the "tablet computer used in the window lobby" to self-check the zip code, cost, delivery days, and read the country's postal terms and parcel terms, etc. In addition, Japan Post will promote the electronicization of notices in post office windows in the future to achieve a paperless layout.   As soon as the news came out, Chinese netizens couldn't help feeling that the above-mentioned measures had been implemented in China for many years, why did Japan regard it as the "future"?   It may be hard to imagine that Japan, which was once famous all over the world for popular electronic products such as Sony, Sharp, and Toshiba, has an astonishingly low informatization rate, just like its aging population

The »woman« in literature and art

 It was during these days, if I remember correctly (in my travelogue, as far as the chronological order is concerned, I am relying on my memory, considering that down there, at the bottom of the sea, I was unable to take notes for lack of suitable writing instruments) that Opula first became interested in "marriage" in the land sense " to the importance of the word and concept. This word often occurred in my presentation, and on one occasion I pronounced it with such pain (I cannot remind the reader enough times that the Oiha language is made up of emotional words) that I attracted the attention and pity of my mistress with it. After a brief hesitation, I realized that it was best to-89-if I explain with an example: and for this example, my own person lends itself well. In my environment, when I was still living at home, everyone acknowledged that I was living in an exemplary marriage in the sense of the mood and spirit of the time - this marriage was the culmination of

After short videos, podcasts are finally here

   In the post-Internet traffic era, a hidden and niche track is emerging.   "If Liang Qichao is here now, he will definitely be a podcaster." In 2019, Xu Zhiyuan said when he was a guest on the podcast show "Sudden Left Sudden Right".   Nowadays, podcasts, which pay more attention to personalized expression, have become a new output window of choice for many media professionals, scholars, and people who want to express themselves in all walks of life—just like the WeChat official account in the early years. According to data from the podcast search engine Listen Notes, as of July 2022, there are about 47,000 Chinese podcasts, compared with only 2,000 in 2019.   In recent years, more and more podcast programs have gradually gone out of the circle, gaining the attention of young people, and even the favor of the capital market. Among them, the leading podcast "Da Nei Secret Talk" received millions of angel investment from ONES Ventures in 2018. At the end o

Grandpa Jia Jia's Forest Villa

   Walking into the Russian jungle, I lived in a log cabin here. The natural and original nature, the chirping and singing birds, wrapped my whole body and mind in the longing green. I couldn't help but think of the writing letter "Golden Rose" written by Soviet writer Kon Baustovsky. The smell of humus soil and the smell of the jungle in my perception filled my whole body at this moment.   This is a real pastoral.   Grandpa Kajia, the forest villa built with 40 years of painstaking efforts, greeted us with a unique primitive style.   In order to show the appearance of the former founder, this old man in his seventies climbed up to the wooden roof step by step along the long wooden ladder. The blue sky turned his flying hair and whiskers into clouds, connecting the sky and the wooden house.   I was moved by the brave behavior of the old man, and by the scene that made my heart tremble...   The rain fell in the jungle at noon.   The not very dense raindrops hit the dense b

Feel sorry

   In life, everyone will encounter some regrets. For example: did not enter the ideal university, did not find a satisfactory job, did not meet the ideal partner, and had no use for a skill... It can be seen that there are many types of regrets. Perhaps it is with some regrets that life will be full of ups and downs, passionate and colorful!   If you are a human being, you will not be without regrets. There is no one in the world who does not have regrets. People often take off their masks and show their true self only after letting go of all the regrets in their hearts. Du Mu is full of talent, suave, casual, romantic in poetry and wine, but his marriage left him with unforgettable regret and pain. Nalan Xingde, the most influential lyricist in the Qing Dynasty, was born with a lonely and sad heart. "Cheng Reminiscence" expresses the biggest regret in his life: he wrongly persists in fame and fame; he gives up easily in love.   It is not terrible to have regrets in life, bu

Why are you not as old as your parents when you were born?

   For some commonplace phenomena in life, it's okay if we don't ask, but if we ask, we may ask about university questions. for example. Before Newton, no one asked a "why" about the phenomenon that "objects thrown into the air will fall back to the ground", but Newton asked, and thus proposed the law of universal gravitation. a seemingly funny question   In biology, there is a similar question: why doesn't every baby grow old like his/her parents? Why do children born to parents of any age have the same starting point physiologically, instead of—for example, children born to 40-year-old parents have a biologically different start than children born to 20-year-old parents? How about older? Because the previously sensational cloned sheep "Dolly" died within a few years because its biological age was the same as the age of the sheep that provided the cells.   You might think I'm joking when you ask such a question. But I'm serious, and he

middle of the sea

    Where do you want to go for a walk today?    "Just go...to the middle of the sea."    Okay, go right now.    "If you completely relax your body and don't think about anything, your body will become very light, as light as a piece of A4 paper, and then you can lie on the sea, sticking a thin layer to the sea surface."    What will you feel in the middle of the sea?    “A little bit of tropical depression and Pacific currents, and the nervousness that an oceanic whitetip shark might be heading for me.”    It didn’t seem like a good time to be out there for a long time.    "Yeah, it will be slowly dried by the sun."    Sounds like a very anxious state?    "When you are completely tired of everything on the land, you should go to the middle of the sea. The sky is the future, the land is the present, and the sea is the past. Lie on the past on your back, and then look at the future with cirrus clouds drifting by .”    Will there be a ship passing b

Biblical Motif Artistic Sublimation

   Titian Vecellio (Tiziano Vecellio, 1482-1576) was the most outstanding artist of the "Venice School" in the heyday of the Italian Renaissance. His painting "Christ and the Pharisees" (also known as "Tax Money") was created in 1516-1518. According to records, the painting was inspired by Giotto's "Judas Kiss" mural, and the plot comes from the story of Jesus and the Pharisees in Chapter 22 of "New Testament Matthew".   "Bible" motif   From the title of the painting "Christ and the Pharisees", we can see that Titian portrayed Jesus as the image of Christ. The word "Christ" comes from the Hebrew Messiah, which is transliterated as "Messiah", meaning "anointed one" and "savior". The early Jewish Christians recognized Jesus as Christ [Jesus the (socalled) Christ], meaning "Jesus is (the one they were waiting for) the Savior". The Christ here has special significance

In the moonlight

 After Jerry Aiken left the camp that night, there was no movement for several minutes; then Dwarf-Pete leisurely raised his broad shoulders and gazed into the treacherous haze of the moon. "Mack!" she whispered. Red immediately got up on his elbow. »I think I meant to make fun.» »But he will come back.» They waited. "No; he's gone for a walk, Mack. Now is our time!» »What if he comes back before we plan to leave?» »We kick him in the head and put the muzzle in that dog's mouth. And now to the horses. The Scovil old man doesn't wake up from nothing; he snores like a dog, you see. Strange that a man like him has such a daughter, isn't it?' »It is impossible to predict what the heirs will be like.» "So; it is true. Your father was a handsome man too, Red.» Even the red's irritation was so restrained that there was no need to fear that it would wake up Scovil. Then the partners quickly rose from their beds, led the horses a short distance away,
