Comment preview: Well, after reading the article, the title of the submission is surprisingly close to the overall message. A few sentences from the article, taken of course out of context, but still representative: "Regardless of domain, a large amount of variance in perf ....


Comment preview: > Sure I want to be Platinum and get that fancy ass border, but if I'm an actual better player than Platinum will come with time. You are my hero. What you are interested in is actually not 15 things, but just 1. It's called *deliberate practice*. Deli ....


Comment preview: The [Dreyfus model](http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2887319/) is basically a description of the five stages a person goes through when acquiring skills. It describes the transition from novice to expert. You would use this as a roadmap of sor ....


Comment preview: There's a significant amount of Science News Cycle going on. Look at the reddit title here: "New study finds that deliberate practice has almost no effect on the skill level of **programmers**" The researchers made no such hyper-specific claim to programm ....


Comment preview: I read a fair bit about performance and expertise psychology. [Here's a good introduction to the matter, and a few conclusions I draw are from this source](http://projects.ict.usc.edu/itw/gel/EricssonDeliberatePracticePR93.pdf). K. Anders Ericsson is one ....


Comment preview: There are quite a few reasons why: a) **The cultural work ethic.** It's NORMAL for a korean student to spend 7am-2pm at school, and THEN go to an afterschool turtoring program for a few hours. Once that's done, they spend the rest of their night studying. ....


Comment preview: Okay. There are undoubtedly some delusional artists featured in this subreddit, and I think anyone making threads saying everyone here is a bully for making fun of people doing what they love are white knighting a bit. That said... You're not wrong. The be ....


Comment preview: I've never read Outliers, but from how people take Gladwell's view on the 10,000 hour rule, it seems that he grossly misinterpreted and misconstrued the data. I read the Ericcson paper a number of years ago, and in it, he was very specific; from a subset o ....


Comment preview: > He's a nice guy and a hard worker Both of those are pretty much proven to be false... What sort of hard worker blames the team for mistakes? He accused Williams of deliberately sabotaging his car. What a twat, the truth is he wasn't fast enough and ma ....


Comment preview: Eh, its a kinda more of a hit-and-miss opener, but if you're attractive and have a bit of game, you could pull it off. In fact, I recommend trying. The crazy openers are often the most fun. If i was single, i'd use it I once led with "sooo, what's the cra ....


Comment preview: x10 myth. He makes a good point that if you believe the x10 difference is innate, i.e. that some people are just better, born better, whatever. That's the "fixed mindset" idea (see Carol Dweck). But if you have a "growth mindset", that people can change an ....


Comment preview: No, the conductor thought they were on the same page all along. This appears to be an "informal" [lunchkonzert](http://www.berliner-philharmoniker.de/en/konzerte/lunchkonzerte/). At the highest levels of professional musicians, guest soloists are not alway ....


Comment preview: >This cover everything you guys want? Some idea for more topics: **TB shaking things up with the Monobattle tournament and the potential of formats other than 1v1?** Tyler played in it. The fans love it. Another example is the IEM FFA match. What's t ....


Comment preview: Here's my suggestion as someone about to be hired by one of the big five (google, amazon, apple, facebook, microsoft): **Take your time**. You don't need to rush this and start studying from day one. It won't work and you'll burn yourself out. Change tak ....


Comment preview: I see a lot of Gervais hate here and I want to put in my two cents. After long discussions with my friends, I feel people take offense to the amount of hard work and time put-in to each of the other comics have had compared to Ricky. Chris Rock is one of t ....


Comment preview: My recommendations are going to be really FI specific, so please don't complain that they don't apply to most people. One good quality is a quick path from untrained to paid employment. Eight years of grueling schoolwork to become a doctor makes sense if ....


Comment preview: This is fantastic analysis. Major props to you, MoonBear. I have never played DotA or SC(2), so to see this sort of cross-game analysis is immensely eye-opening. It really made me look at the game differently (and wish I did have that sort of a background) ....


Comment preview: A Priest acts *in persona Christi* when he pronounces the Words of Institution as part of the Eucharistic Prayer at Mass, making the bread become the Body of Christ and the wine His Blood. A priest and bishop act *in persona Christi* in their leadership of ....


Comment preview: The aim of duck and cover was to save/reduce injuries to as many people as possible by instructing them to do something that they could do without any special equipment or shelters being constructed, what they could do with what they had. Obviously if you ....


Comment preview: **Step 3 : Practice and experimentation** After identifying your strengths and weaknesses, do not attempt to improve all of them at once. Focus on one thing at a time. You might notice a slight dip in your performance. That is normal because you are try ....


Comment preview: Its not an area of great knowledge for me; my WWI focus and interest being on the Middle-East. Perhaps /u/elos_ can shed some light? Contextually, the Imperial Russian military had been in a state of steady decline, and it had not been a good start to the ....


Comment preview: * Prepare for every class. Read notes from your last class before anything else. Read the PowerPoint slides/class summary for the upcoming class first, then the assigned readings (textbook chapters, then journal articles). Make notes. Summarise, write a li ....


Comment preview: However you regard the 'morality' of Empire, there is no disguising that in the states that succeeded Alexander the Great's Empire Greeks and Macedonians were on top. Not only were the Kings (and often Queens) of the Hellenistic States Macedonian or Greek, ....


Comment preview: **Part the Second** But let us move away from carts, ceramics, and cereals. What else can I attribute societies outside of North Africa with developing on their own? Well, there is the small matter of developing stoneworking entirely independently, in the ....
