    1. To see how this story unfolded, it’s worth going back to 2003. At the ETech conference that year, a keynote speech was given by the web enthusiast and writer Clay Shirky, now an academic at New York University, which surprised its audience by declaring that the task of designing successful online communities had little to do with technology at all. The talk looked back at one of the most fertile periods in the history of social psychology, and was entitled “A group is its own worst enemy”. Shirky drew on the work of the British psychoanalyst and psychologist Wilfred Bion, who, together with Kurt Lewin, was one of the pioneers of the study of “group dynamics” in the 40s. The central proposition of this school was that groups possess psychological properties that exist independently of their individual members. In groups, people find themselves behaving in ways that they never would if left to their own devices.

    1. Kiedy zastanawiamy się nad czymś w języku obcym, to albo więcej myślimy, albo mniej czujemy. Moim jednak zdaniem bardziej prawdopodobne jest wytłumaczenie, że w języku obcym wszystko mnie mniej pobudza, w związku z tym emocje mniej mnie rozpraszają w racjonalnym myśleniu
    2. Język obcy - w porównaniu z ojczystym - sprawia więc, że kiedy napotykamy problem, jesteśmy bardziej skłonni, by rozwiązać go w sposób racjonalny. A mniej bierzemy pod uwagę, jakie normy etyczne rozwiązanie to nagina.
    3. Kiedy myślimy w języku, który znamy słabiej, ważniejsze staje się osiągnięcie założonego efektu, a mniej ważny jest wymiar moralny działań

    1. The most controversial crime-related posts get the most engagement. In turn, these posts are featured the most in users’ notifications because the algorithm knows those posts attract lots of likes, comments, and clicks.

      I wonder if this also increases the availability heuristic implicit and makes people think there is more crime in their neighborhood than there actually is?

    1. С точки зрения нейропсихологии, нормальное состояние человеческого мозга — это состояние тревоги и печали. Быть грустным — это норма. А вот ощущение счастья и любви — это ненормальное состояние нашего мозга и психики»

    1. People are usually pretty willing to help when they are in a secure position. But when you start assuming a lot of risk to help someone, outright foolishness is harder to stomach.You might say when offering help saddles you with risk, it accelerates compassion fatigue (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compassion_fatigue)
