Curiosity and Ego

  • We want to know as much as possible
  • We want to learn things that will help us
  • We don't want to spend time on things we already know, or which we'll never use.
    • ROC curves
  • We don't want to learn things that are wrong.
  • Ego vs. 'meekness'.
  • Active learning and education
  • XKCD comic on learning Perl in high school
  • How to learn, and how to get better at something. What does science tell us?
  • Can curiosity be the right mental approach?
