    1. But I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days

      It's unclear if Captain Wentworth honestly thinks women require more care and better accommodations or whether he is avoiding women in general because of Anne. This line of Mrs Croft's is beautiful. There is a modern web series adaptation called Rational Creatures. I think this is an echo of Mary Wollstonecraft, Austen uses the term again when Elizabeth Bennet is rejecting Mr Collins proposal (P&P chapter 19)

    1. Harold Jarche looked at his most visited blog postings over the years, and concludes his blog conforms to Sturgeon’s Revelation that 90% of everything is crap. I recognise much of what Harold writes. I suspect this is also what feeds impostor syndrome. You see the very mixed bag of results from your own efforts, and how most of it is ‘crap’. The few ‘hits’ for which you get positive feedback are then either ‘luck’ or should be normal, not sparse. Others of course forget most if not all of your less stellar products and remember mostly the ones that stood out. Only you are in a position to compare what others respond to with your internal perspective.

      The cumulative effect of one's perception of Sturgeon's law may be a driving force underlying imposter syndrome.

      While one see's the entirety of their own creation process and realizes that only a small fraction of it is truly useful, it's much harder seeing only the finished product of others. The impression one is left with by availability heuristic is that there are thousands of geniuses in the world with excellent, refined products or ideas while one's own contribution is miniscule in comparison.


      Contrast this with Matt Ridley's broad perspective in The Rational Optimist which shows the power of cumulative breeding and evolution of ideas. One person can make their own stone hand axe, but no one person can make their own toaster oven or computer mouse alone.

    1. 5. Emotional Issues Rule The Co-Parenting Relationship: There are some parents who either can’t or obstinately refuse to move past emotional issues left over from the divorce. If your co-parent is passive aggressive or, God forbid, you are co-parenting with a narcissist, you will find that regardless of how civil you attempt to be the co-parenting relationship will be riddled with conflict. How can this conflict be resolved? Unless the parent with emotional issues seeks help, there will be no resolution. A parent with a personality disorder has an inherent blind spot when it comes to what is and isn’t in their children’s best interest. As the reasonable, healthy parent you need to focus on the fact that you are dealing with someone with psychological issues and do the work needed to protect your children from harm.

    1. Move boldly beyond cookies With Adobe’s industry-leading customer experience technology, the end of third-party cookies isn’t a problem. It’s an opportunity.

      different to other sub-pages on this category, this section gives a rational explaining to the reader why adobe's customer experience tech should be their main consideration; and said page is mostly non-visual with written logical arguments

      after multiple page redirects, the user still aren't prompted with the actual pricing of the product, and it's all hidden behind redirections such as "learn more" / "start free trial" that only leads users to pages that have them directly sign up, or advertise to them more first.

      It is an effective marketing strategy in a sense, yes, but it is also infuriating and inconvenience for people who want to quickly look for the price of said product

    1. Make experience your business. Digital has disrupted every industry. Your customers now expect you to be personal. To be beautiful. To be simple yet compelling. All the time. Businesses that can deliver on that will build loyalty that leads to growth.

      Right away this B2B site hits the visitor with a gut-punch of emotion and customer expectation...suggest that they are the solution to this pain point! I like how bold and upfront they are here.

    1. Your people and your workplace are your greatest assets and they are underutilized. Steelcase research shows us that on average: only 54% of office space is used throughout the day over 37% of employees are not engaged at work We equip organizations with the tools to measure the places where people work on a continuous, periodic, or trial basis.

      Here it gets into quantitative data, which would appeal to decision-makers. Long-term decision-making may also factor in at this point, if an office redesign is a project that is being considered for the future.

    1. Johnson’s book (lively and well sourced –  highly recommended) transcends the cliche of the individual innovator  and shows the ways in which innovation depends on a form of social  capital — the networks of people and ideas that innovators learn from  and build upon.

      It's rarely ever about the "lone genius".

    1. I-laving developed one's rational powers, one could then read as extensively (or not) as one wished.

      This reminds me of Plato's "Chariot Allegory:" the notion that the charioteer (logic, reason) attempts to drive and control the two horses (rational and irrational) toward the truth.
