How Biased Are You?

Your brain has 100 billion neurons, 100 trillion connections and you only command 5% of it.

The human brain is a natural wonder. It produces more than 50,000 thoughts each day and 100,000 chemical reactions each second. 3,542 more words

解讀語言偽術

1. 解讀 19 才子關於女運動員 #metoo 果啲posts,唔係叫做有 critical thinking,而係用左語言偽術。

1a. 語言偽術即 fallacy “謬誤”
1a1. Straw man,中文是 “攻擊稻草人”。意思即是:曲解對方嘅論點,針對曲解左嘅論點而攻擊對方。用人嘅語言理解釋:即是人哋都唔係咁嘅意思,夾硬話人哋係咁嘅意思,跟住再攻擊。
普通例子:女朋友話「 公司嚟咗個幾靚嘅女同事,第一日返工個個男同事都及到實」,男朋友話「靚女梗係多人望㗎喇」!女朋友話「 你而家即係話我又老又醜啫, 你實係有第三者」。即是,女朋友曲解男朋友嘅意思,再攻擊佢。

例如19 才子的 post :「見到荷里活女星個個玩得咁型乜乜乜,要跟潮流」。就是扭曲別人 #metoo 的意思為扮型跟潮流,跟住就可以攻擊別人。 99 more words
