Mmhmm, but most people say that teaching critical thinking is very difficult or not possible, that one is either capable of it or they are not. You can teach it all you want, but unless you are there standing over their shoulder, they will not use it.

Default Re: Deep Psychological Questions

Say you lived in a hut in India, and you were standing in front of your grandmother. Suddenly a rhino charges at you in a straight line towards you and your grandmother. Your grandmother is in a wheelchair and cannot move. This is a split second decision. Do you stand in the rhino's way to protect your grandmother, knowing very well that both of you could easily get killed. (Remember you have a family to support) Would you move and leave your grandmother vulnerable? Would you make loud noises to distract the rhino?

No trolling please.

Interesting question.

My grandmother and I don't have the best relationship because she's angry that I'm not going to become a doctor, so is constantly comparing me to my sister. She also lives in another country, so I don't see her often. If it was my grandfather, who I love, I would probably try to save him.

But if I had children, then no, I probably wouldn't,

My grandmother speaks no English, so I have to speak to her in another language that I'm not even that good at. And she talks too fast so I can barely understand her.

I think it's possible if we have good education from the beginning. But in the US, education has been about test scores, which makes teachers teach to the test rather than teach critically. I also think that the standards for teachers need to be raised.

Critical thinking requires dispassion and that's not easy for humans.

I don't know what your impression of India is, but it is not common to have wild rhinoceros charging at us.

What is your greatest regret so far?
What happens after death?

Philosophy, Not Psychology.

Do you think everyone has a soulmate in this world?

Biologically, yes. Realistically no. Our minds have different ideas of what is attractive, generally though for Women, they like big upper body,smaller stomach, symmetrical, sharp face, tall, confident. Men like, young, big breasted, curvy, women. Personality and other things are a bonus But everyone has their own pre-disposition so to say of what is attractive and doing some number crunching, the odds that two people are attracted to the same thing are possible but not very likely.

What is life's purpose?

Philisophy again, but ill give a crack.

To achieve happiness and fulfillment with YOUR life, whatever that may be.

What is your greatest regret so far?

Ahh now this is Psychology . My deepest regret is not taking a chance with more women lol. Lets just say I had some very fine women attracted to me, but was too shy to do anything about it. I've gotten over that now, but of course we all struggle with this undoubtedly


Ok I have a little background knowledge on this stuff, so let me contribute.

1. What is the happiest moment of your life and how did it change you or shape who you are?
2. What is stopping you from achieving what you want in life?
3. What is your favorite number and think Why?
4. Name a time and place where you became inspired.
5. List the first three emotions that come to mind when you think about your life right now.

There's a lot of assumptions here that may not fit everyone. I have neither grandmothers (living) nor a family to support. Decisions made in critical situations by family men is for most impossible to predict, at least when they haven't got their family yet. You don't know for sure what you'll do until you experience for yourself.

With those caveats in mind, what I would hope to do was to move myself and the wheelchair out ot the rhino's way, backing away from it. They are fairly stupid animals and not good at direction changes.

Agreed, which is why it is a hypothetical question. When I went to India, there was neither.

Yes, I said to assume this applied to you. Of course this has 0% chance to actually happen.
