Revision as of 00:17, 20 February 2015

Me in brief:

  • I'm a life coach – areas of focus intlude clearing anger, bitterness & other negative emotions. I'm keen to be evidence-based about this, but in this field, evidence is often fuzzy, and experience is an important guide.
  • I've worked in sustainability knowledge-sharing.
  • I know about wikis, and help run Appropedia, the sustainability wiki.

Sequences: Achieving awesomeness

Work in progress. Suggestions appreciated. Boldly edit the page, or leave a message on my talk page.

World-changing

Building community

A communication sequence

Social aspects of communication (or is that a tautology?):

Emotion, making sense, and anticipating reactions:

  • Politics is the Mind-Killer – Avoiding emotional & tribal identity triggers. "Politics is an important domain to which we should individually apply our rationality—but it's a terrible domain in which to learn rationality, or discuss rationality, unless all the discussants are already rational." & "it doesn't matter whether (you think) the [specific political party] really is at fault. It's just better for the spiritual growth of the community to discuss the issue without invoking color politics."
  • Policy Debates Should Not Appear One-Sided – "there is no reason for complex actions with many consequences to exhibit this onesidedness property." "Two primary drivers of policy-one-sidedness are the affect heuristic and the just-world fallacy." Avoid using arguments as soldiers.
  • Policy Debates Should Not Appear One-Sided (discusses arguments as soldiers)
  • Philosophical Landmines – "If something you say makes people go off on a spiral of bad philosophy, don't get annoyed with them, just fix what you say. This is just being a communications consequentialist."
    • Responding to a landmine explosion: It may be best to "abort the conversation." Alternatively, a commenter suggests, "stop taking sides and talk about the plus and minuses of each side."
  • (Something more about emotional triggers?)

Understanding and being understood:

Biases, heuristics and fallacies that affect communication:

Disagreeing:

Online communication (for further exploration):

  • Text-based communication
  • Dealing with trolls

Dealing with negative emotions

(Againstness, noticing)

Happiness & depression, e.g. Methods for treating depression
