    while i mostly agree with the conclusions found in this article, i think there's even more to it.

    i was always one of those girls who, when asked to work a problem on the chalkboard would work more slowly if i saw someone was struggling. it felt mean to completely show them up. i sincerely don't know if its a gender or personality thing. i wouldn't ever deliberately be wrong, but i definitely worried about the others' feelings.

    fast forward a few years. in educational circumstances, the guy i'm usually crushing on is the one who (for lack of a better term) is my competition in school. especially if he beats me or i consider him my intellectual/educational superior at least on some level. in fact, there's a well known joke among my friends that when a guy beats me at a game that i'm good at (or some real challenge for me) then i'm usually going to like him a LOT more after that.
    but, it got me wondering (given the article) is this whole excitement over "being beaten at my own game" situation just an opportunity for me to bathe in the nostalgia of a different time?

    or maybe i'm just too competitive...

    Unless its like Words with Friends. Then I'm just like meh.



    Also... this article highlights why I want to have a Daughter. So that I can influence her to be different. To be Unique in a way that I have rarely seen. Beyond simply knowing something, I want to teach her to always look for the truth, and always find it.
    It's wonderful to see girls protected, but not babied;
    Challenged, but not pushed; and
    Encouraged, but not flattered.

    Love it! I just want to frame them all for my livingroom and watch visitors' expressions as they start to realize what they really say. [insert mischievous laugh]

    one thing that fascinates me is how intelligence can be used as gasoline to propel some forward, and isolate others. in my career, i've seen those with greater emotional & social intelligence (and perhaps lower i.q.) zoom far beyond those with whom i would identify as high i.q. but lower in social and emotional intellect.

    for my fellow grammarians. this made my head hurt a bit, but in the best way possible.


    no big surprises here, right?

    Although both sexes say they want a sense of humor, in our research women interpreted this as ‘someone who makes me laugh,’ and men wanted ‘someone who laughs at my jokes.


    perhaps truer words have never been written. : )

    Really shows just how big ships are, and I know there's physics behind it but that boat is so big and how it floats just blows my mind.
