Learning is remembering what you are interested in. My whole life is following my personal path of interest.Richard Saul Wurman, Design Matters with Debbie Millman
The words a person uses are very telling. From these two sentences, it can be inferred that Richard likely had advantages in life that many people do not.
✅ (5b) Goal accomplished in listening to one TED talk for Week 12/52. This week I listened to Who are you, really? The puzzle of personality | Brian Little
Brian talks about trait psychology (part of personality science) that describes the five universally held aspects of the differences between people.
- Open versus closed.
- Conscientiousness versus lackadaisical.
- Extroversion versus introversion.
- Agreeable versus not agreeable.
- Nuerotic versus stable.
Together the traits spell out the acronym OCEAN.
