  1. Monopoly and Psychology

    Unless you've already seen John Green's new video on vlogbrothers then you might not know of a recent psychology study. Several Monopoly games were set up by psychologists. However the difference in this is that one person out of the players got a huge advantage at the start of the game, for example starting with more money. This led to the people who had the advantage to think that the game is more fair than it actually was and that they deserved that money. Similarly, studies have shown that rich ...
  2. Sigmund Freud

    Yes, Sigmund Freud. Now before you call this man a pervert, that's not true. He thought everyone else was a pervert. But in all serious, we all need to remember Freud's theories.

Now like a shadow puppet show, there is a wall so the people can hide while they operate the puppets. The people who are tied up, the slaves, see these puppets and see them as reality. Now also in the cave there are echoes ...
  5. Education for the future?

    Hey guys, got another post here. I'll give you guys a critical thinking story soon, but during my vacation I just got a lot of inspiration for my new posts. I don't think this one will be too long, but I just wanted to share this. So you guys might've noticed that I really like education and learning. At the very least, I'm in a phase where I really like education. Why do I like education? Well it's because education is awesome and fantastic! But why is learning so important? You see commercials ...
