One of the skills here is an open minded flow of discussion between parts.

To get to an open minded discussion, the agents who are shutting down discussions need to form an agreement to discuss. That means no distraction, no sleepiness, no anxiety around the conversation.

This open discussion can be done for one part at a time or for the global, "discussions are safe" paradigm.

If "discussions are safe", then it's possible to ask the question, "what can't we talk about?" and find content/parts there. (there's still things I don't need to talk about very much, but I have no problem with them and talking about them. For example I prefer to look in an optimistic direction and point my mind there but I have no problem digging up all the fears, doubts and discomforts if that's needed)

Quoted from the 2016 cfar handbook:

Richard Hamming was a mathematician at Bell Labs from the 1940’s through the 1970’s who liked to sit down with strangers in the company cafeteria and ask them about their fields of expertise. At first, he would ask mainly about their day-to-day work, but eventually, he would turn the conversation toward the big, open questions—what were the most important unsolved problems in their profession? Why did those problems matter?

What kinds of things would change when someone in the field finally broke through? What new potential would that unlock? After he’d gotten them excited and talking passionately, he would ask one final question: “So, why aren’t you working on that?”

Hamming didn’t make very many friends with this strategy, but he did inspire some of his colleagues to make major shifts in focus, rededicating their careers to the problems they felt actually mattered.

I am currently reading spiral dynamics. It might be interesting to present clothing through the eyes of different stages of development. (colour scheme belongs to the theory)

Beige: clothing is about basic needs. Survival, being warm when relevant. They don't really matter beyond that. They might get damaged and need replacing.

Purple: clothing is about basic needs but also about identity and mythic connection. Grandma gives you a scarf, that scarf is special and holds the special for its lifetime. Attire can have powers, colours can represent spirit.

Red: clothing is about showing off. Being strong. I am the best because I have the best clothing. Attire is about status and status alone. These gold chainz. They are because I represent being at the top.

Blue: attire is about showing off rank and expertise. You know I'm the boss because I wear armani suits. I know how to pay attention to the right details and be technically correct so other people recognise my rank.

Orange: I like status for myself. Having a sports car is for me. It's because I'm great.

Green: everyone can wear what they like. Programmers in hoodies. That's because we are above all that signalling status stuff. It's not about the clothes we wear, it's about the people we are and the diverse opinions we bring to the table.

Tier 2

Yellow: okay. I still need to be warm. I can still wear grandma's scarf, but I also get to be technically correct about what's the best thing for me to wear. And it might be a hoodie, or it might not be a hoodie. Depending on the room I'm walking into. I can dress as I like and still be impressive to both others and myself and be comfortable.

Turquoise: everything at yellow is correct and there's still a way to dress that makes others feel included and supported and not intimidated by my power but also know that I have the power if I need it. I also get to wear my identities in ways that suit me.

Coral:?? (unsure) in any moment, with every room I walk into, I know how to be to get what I want out of the room and to have the room be the best version of itself. I'm not always in charge but I am always moving to where I want things to be. My clothes allow me to be at all levels at all times depending on who's looking at me.

The problem of interfaces between cultures.

Humans live in different cultures. A simple version of this is in how cultures greet each other. The Italian double kiss, the ultra orthodox Jewish non touch, the hippie hug, the handshake of various cultures, the Japanese bow/nod, and many more. It's possible to gravely offend a different culture with the way you do introductions.

Now think about the same potential offence but for all conversation culture.

Comment by elo on What are questions? · 2019-01-09T20:42:54.814Z · score: 7 (5 votes) · LW · GW

(this response is going to be odd)

Questions don't need (direct) answers.

There are three parts to a question.

  1. The feeling behind the question.
  2. The feeling in the question.
  3. The feeling that the question provokes.

Take a simple question (in the concrete realm) like, "why are you home so late?"

Without knowing who it comes from or why, we can guess at 1/2/3.

  1. Love/care
  2. Fear/worry
  3. Frustration

From an emotional management perspective, all we need to do is validate the feelings. The best answer might be,

(a) "I can tell that you care about me, it sounds like you are worried about where I was, I can see how it might be frustrating not knowing where I was."

(b) Alternatively, also good response to (1)- "I can tell how much you care about me"

(c) And the less good response to (2), "do you have a problem with that?"

(d) Or response to (3), "why are you always accusing me of things!"


Notice that an answer like, (e) "I was caught in traffic" manages to make the asker do the emotional work of deciding if the question was answered.

The asker could then have to follow up, "that doesn't explain why you were so late?" and the feeling behind/in the question has changed.

A question is an opportunity for connection, emotional connection (John Gottman called it "emotional bids).

Answering the question with (e), closes the question and ends the opportunity for connection. Effectively, one of the worst things that can be done for emotional entities trying to create connections. One of the best things that can be done is (a) and even b, c, d generate emotions that demonstrate investment in the current events. An investment that can be engaged with and interacted with.

The answer (d) goes about putting emotional Labor back on the asker to validate the defensiveness feeling demonstrated in the response. It's not ideal, it's asking/demanding to be heard, but at least it's living in love emotions.

Lastly the case of (f) silence in response. If asked the question above and the response is silence, the asker gets to fill the void with their inherent assumptions. In a good relationship that means the asker can fill the void with their own validation, in a bad relationship, the asker fills the void with their own fear or anger emotion. The longer that the void is, the more chance that the uncomfortable emotions resolve themselves (oh! I'm only frustrated because xyz, I feel better now even though I didn't get an answer). Silence is useful, important, and complicated.


When I ask a question from the known to the unknown, I give my brain (consciousness?) a chance to point at the unknown and find itself the answer. I also give my brain the chance to point awareness at 1/2/3 and resolve the issues that exist by those emotions needing to be validated. If I just answer the question, I don't validate 1/2/3, I just close the inquiry.

Often a question needs a bit of silence before being answered (2sec+) because in the silence, people often know the answer they are wanting.

Classic, "flip a coin because while it's flying through the air you find out which side you want it to land on".

From a rationality perspective, we aim to maximise the known, because knowable things are "safe". Unfortunately, knowns are also boring. In post-rationality (or mysticism) we realised the need to traverse both the known and the unknown equally and thus the need for the willingness to be uncomfortable.

We build a house to create known safety from the elements. That's amazing and important. Then we get bored of staying home and we go out to do things that are interesting. Stepping slightly out of safety and into the unknown, because that's where the good things are to be discovered.

Life (creativity, freedom, existence), the good stuff, the exciting, amazing stuff, happens in the unknown. A good measure of known will support the unknown. I create a few hours of free time in my calendar to do some creative work.

Too much of either known or unknown is not going to be the right balance. There is a need for balance between the known and unknown.


(and the weird and mystical answer likely to get me thrown off lesswrong) there's a balance between 1 and 0.


Separate comment: (improv theatre says, don't ask questions, make statements)


Obviously this is a very simple example and I've filled in the blanks massively. It's easy to tear apart this example but that's not the point. This examination works if the 1/2/3 motivations fit the asker.

(apologies for formatting weirdness)

https://weather.com/health/news/sunburn-more-likely-spring

This source has a piece of information.

When we think about sunburn, we usually associate it with picnics and trips to the beach at the height of summer. But while it may seem like your days of dutifully donning sunscreen are still well ahead, the peak time when you're at risk for gettig a sunburn is actally... right now.

"UV rays become more intense in the spring, even before temperatures get warmer," the American Cancer Society warns. "People in some areas may get sunburned when the weather is still cool because they may not think of protecting themselves if it's not hot out."

It all has to do with the angle of the sun. According to the FDA, as the sun reaches a more direct angle, UV radiation strengthens. In the weeks preceding the summer solstice, that angle becomes more and more direct. Late spring and early summer are when UV rays are at their greatest, the CDC says.

I don't have a formal source, no.

I live in Australia. We know the sun here because it literally feels burning. I visited the northern states of america and I noticed that the sun didn't heat me up in the same way that it does in Australia. If I had to guess, this is about wavelengths of light that make it to the ground, not necessarily UV, but the IR ranges that feel a lot more like heat in the body body.

If heat keeps someone out of the sun that means less UV burn too.

Again - no source.
