You Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself By David McRaney read by Don Hagen Unabridged, chapterized, VBR 22.05kHz mono running time 8h24m An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you're as deluded as the rest of us. But that's OK- delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It's like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework. Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday, including: * Dunbar's Number - Humans evolved to live in bands of roughly 150 individuals, the brain cannot handle more than that number. If you have more than 150 Facebook friends, they are surely not all real friends. * Hindsight bias - When we learn something new, we reassure ourselves that we knew it all along. * Confirmation bias - Our brains resist new ideas, instead paying attention only to findings that reinforce our preconceived notions. * Brand loyalty - We reach for the same brand not because we trust its quality but because we want to reassure ourselves that we made a smart choice the last time we bought it. Packed with interesting sidebars and quick guides on cognition and common fallacies, You Are Not So Smart is a fascinating synthesis of cutting-edge psychology research to turn our minds inside out.

Principles of Topological Psychology by Kurt Lewin (1936) Reprint of 1936 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition. Reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Topological psychology may be described non-technically as an attempt to comprehend human behavior in terms of the objects which are present, and of the relations among "events" taking place in a given environment ("life-span"). Lewin contends that it provides the basis for a truly scientific psychology. The Lewin's equation, B = ƒ(P, E), is a psychological equation of behavior developed by Kurt Lewin. It states that behavior is a function of the person in their environment. The equation is the psychologist's most well known formula in social psychology, of which Lewin was a modern pioneer. When first presented in Lewin's book "Principles of Topological Psychology," published in 1936, it contradicted most popular theories in that it gave importance to a person's momentary situation in understanding his or her behavior, rather than relying entirely on the past. review: Lewin is marvelous and this book is so loaded with information and detail on how Gestalten might be used, viewed and tracked in the perceptual process, that it is an invaluable potential base for serious play in the minds of it's readers. The book is as powerful today as it ever was, and it was great from the day it was published. For people who like to think about thinking, visualizing what happens, and how things work, It would be difficult to find a better or more comprehensive book on "human mapping." The book is straightforward, well written, and a grand explication of how one might capture multiple aspects of human processing, scientifically or otherwise, in a visual format or a cognitive map. If one wanted to find basic information on ideas like fields, boundaries, paths, interactions and a host of other ideas, he or she might be hard pressed to get a more fundamentally solid set of definitions and constructs with which to work. This is dynamite stuff. People who like psychological history will love to speculate on the importance of this book. People who like to reinvent the wheel will enjoy it one more time by embracing this seminal gem from 1936. I just love it. comment: According to Dr. John Coleman (Committee of 300), the British "Tavistock Institute of Human Relations", an institute for brainwashing and social engineering, likes to use this type of psychology to manipulate its victims - individuals and entire populations. ebooks: LEWIN, Kurt - Principles of Topological Psychology 251p.pdf tags: psychology, gestalt, mind control, manipulation, indoctrination, propaganda, cognitive, deception, social engineering

Brain Facts A Primer on the Brain and Nervous System (2008) by Denison University "Brain Facts" is a neuroscience educational document produced by the Society for Neuroscience. In February and March of 2008, and with the permission of the Society for Neuroscience, an audio version of "Brain Facts" was created by three Denison University students; Jenna Kelly, James Maniscalco, and Lauren Meyer. All three students were charter members of the Denison University Chapter of Nu Rho Psi (the Neuroscience Honor Society) and NERD (Neuroscience Education & Research at Denison). comment: To understand the art of mind control in the conspiratorial context, you need to have a foundation in brain sciences, psychology and neurology. Here you have one fundamental component. For example: Learning about the causes of depression will give the elite the ability to artificially induce depression amongst the target population for the purpose of social engineering. Depressed people are less likely to resist a tyranny for lack of motivation. source: http://personal.denison.edu/~matthewsn/nurhopsiprojects.html http://www.brainfacts.org/About-Neuroscience/Brain-Facts-book audio: Brain Facts 00 Preface.m4a Brain Facts 01 Introduction.m4a Brain Facts 02 The Neuron.m4a Brain Facts 03 Brain Development.m4a Brain Facts 04 Sensation & Perception.m4a Brain Facts 05 Learning Memory & Language.m4a Brain Facts 06 Movement.m4a Brain Facts 07 Sleep.m4a Brain Facts 08 Stress.m4a Brain Facts 09 Aging.m4a Brain Facts 10 Neural Disorders Addiction.m4a Brain Facts 11 Neural Disorders Alzheimer's.m4a Brain Facts 12 Neural Disorders Autism.m4a Brain Facts 13 Neural Disorders Major Depression.m4a Brain Facts 14 Neural Disorders Parkinson's Disease.m4a Brain Facts 15 New Diagnostic Methods.m4a Brain Facts 16 Potential Therapies.m4a Brain Facts 17 Neuroethics.m4a specs: 4 hrs 17 min 41 sec, 44.1 kHz, 64kbps text: Brain Facts book 2012 96p.pdf tags: brain, neuron, perception, stress, psychology, neurology, disorders

In the mid-eighties, Nightingale wrote his first book, Earl Nightingale’s Greatest Discovery for which he received the Napoleon Hill Gold Medal for Literary Excellency. Just prior to his death in 1989, Nightingale created a new format for a book called The Winner’s Notebook. It included his text, his illustrations, and incorporated space for a private journal. When Nightingale was seventeen he joined the United States Marines He was on the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor and was one of twelve surviving Marines on board that day. Before being mustered, Nightingale was an instructor at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. After the war Nightingale began work in the radio industry, which eventually led to work as a motivational speaker. In the fall of 1949, Nightingale was inspired while reading Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Quoting from the Earl Nightingale official website: "When he was 29, Earl's enlightenment had come to him as a bolt out of the blue while reading, 'Think and Grow Rich'. It came when he realized that the six words he read were the answer to the question he had been looking for! That, 'we become what we think about'. He realized that he had been reading the same truth over and over again, from the New Testament...to the works of Emerson. 'We become what we think about.' 'As ye sow, so shall ye reap...'" In 1956 he produced a spoken word record, The Strangest Secret, which sold over a million copies, making it the first spoken-word recording to achieve Gold Record status. In 1960, a condensed audio version of Think and Grow Rich was narrated by Nightingale. It was titled Think and Grow Rich: The Essence Of The Immortal Book By Napoleon Hill, Narrated by Earl Nightingale, produced by Success Motivation Institute. Also in 1960, he cofounded the Nightingale-Conant corporation with Lloyd Conant. Nightingale’s radio program, Our Changing World, became the most highly syndicated radio program ever, and was heard across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, South Africa, the Bahamas, 23 countries overseas, as well as the Armed Forces Network.
