Comment by sarginlove on Using humility to counteract shame · 2016-04-19T14:24:51.895Z · score: 1 (3 votes) · LW · GW

Pride is something that is not desirable, making yourself more better and also having the feeling that you are more better than others. With this post am now able to understand what pride it's all about and knowing that there are lot of things that we would loose when we are being proud. The main thing i have also noticed and with this post have been able to understand this very well is humility, When you are humble there are lot of things you gain from this then also you can be able to avoid shame and not feel bad about it.

A lovely one, with this ideal i can be able to know how a typical EA member should behave, then also know how to behave as one encouraging others also on how to become a good and typical EA member. Then also not just encouraging but making them remain as one. A nice write up which can help to improve giving behavior and changing other people's giving behavior which can have impact in he society. It's really a good thing.

That's true! In life it's best we try to understand why some persons are acting in a particular kind of way, knowing what causes these characters, knowing if these characters are desirable and then going towards advising that person, changing his or her mind by knowing what they're wrong about. By doing this you can be able to explain to that person, giving good ideals and giving advise on areas he can improve more exhibiting characters and attitudes that are desirable to other people and also the society. That's good i think the best thing i have learnt from here is knowing people's fault before trying to correct them, in this way you can be able to determine specific areas that needs improvement in their life style and also being able to change their mind and attitude positively.

Comment by sarginlove on 9 Strategies for Effective Donors · 2016-04-19T05:23:33.104Z · score: -3 (5 votes) · LW · GW

Thanks that's really a lovely write up about being an effective donor. I really can understand now, how i can give effectively without having any giving regret, it's best i study and know the right people, the right amount,then also the right time to give which is desirable to me and also studying the right kind of charity organisation to give funds to. My best point here is being smart, with this ideal i can now know the right kind of people to give my funds too, there are lot of people out there who are just pretending to be in different situation in order to extort money from people. It really would be painful when funds are given out to such people who ends up spending this money on women and drinks, that's bad! So am so happy i was able to read this post i now have thorough ideal and knowledge of knowing the best kind of people to release giving funds too.

Wow lovely post i have observed some certain characters about my self which i had too change immediately i read this post. I think now i now understand what it takes to become rational and also what i could gain sharing my own story of Rationality and Effective Altruism.

This post had made me understand the impact of drawing others to pay attention to my ideals.
