    For the 1,328th time I am NOT IMMORTAL!!!

    I do not have a soul, thereby granting me immortality. *shakes head*
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    Survey among 7800 German Catholics:

    90% are in favor of letting divorced people receive communion.
    85% are in favor of making celibacy optional for priests.
    70% are in favor of a blessing ceremony of gay couples.
    The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Neither love without knowledge, nor knowledge without love can produce a good life. - Bertrand Russell

    And the more we convince ourselves that we don’t have certain biases, the more likely we are to exhibit them. If we believe we’re good people, for example, we may stop trying to be better and may be more likely to act indecently. Similarly, if we think we’re smart, we might skip studying for a test and give ignorant answers. In general, if we believe we’re unbiased, we’re giving ourselves permission to be biased.

    To Boost Employee Performance, not Achievement

    Fixed mindset: The belief that intelligence, ability, and skill are inborn and relatively fixed--we "have" what we were born with. People with a fixed mindset typically say things like "I'm just not that smart" or "Math is not my thing."

    Growth mindset: The belief that intelligence, ability, and skill can be developed through effort--we are what we work to become. People with a growth mindset typically say things like "With a little more time, I'll get it" or "That's OK. I'll give it another try."

    That difference in perspective can be molded by the kind of praise we receive, and that often starts when we're kids. For example, say you are praised in one of these ways:

    "Wow, you figured that out so fast--you are so smart!"
    "Wow, you are amazing--you got an A without even cracking a book!"
    Sounds great, right? The problem is that other messages are lurking within those statements:

    "If I don't figure things out fast, I must not be very smart."
    "If I do have to study, I'm not amazing."
    The result can be a fixed mindset. We start to assume we are what we are. Then, when the going gets tough and we struggle, we feel helpless because we think what we "are" isn't good enough.

    And when we think that, we stop trying.

    When you praise employees only for achievements--or criticize employees for short-term failures--you help create a fixed mindset environment. In time, employees see every mistake as a failure. They see a lack of immediate results as a failure. In time, they can lose motivation and even stop trying.

    After all, why try when trying won't matter?

    Fortunately, there's another way: Make sure you focus on praising effort and application, too:

    "That didn't go perfectly, but you're definitely on the right track. Let's see what we can do to make it go even better next time."
    "Hey, you finished that project much more quickly this time. You must have worked really hard."
    "Great job! I can tell you put a lot of time into that."
    The difference? You still praise results, but you praise results that are based on the premise of effort and not on an assumption of innate talent or skill. By praising effort, you help create an environment where employees feel anything is possible.


    ---
    Not sure if I fully believe in this, but I do believe that under less than ideal conditions/mental health status, individuals might not have the skillsets necessary to meet their own self demands-those which can occasionally seem to be made stronger from external judgements qualitative judgments like the one above.
