    What is Dunning–Kruger effect and why it is just noise

    MC G is here with da truth for y'all. The original Dunning–Kruger graph is wrong and misleading. It's possible to get the Dunning-Kruger effect without gathering any data at all. Just random noise results and assuming everyone has equal confidence. Here's an article explaining why the effect...

    Ragnar please remove the country flags, it's racist also can we stop logging IP's?

    @Ragnar 1. Can we have the option to turn off the country flags? Not everyone wants to show that, I'm sure. I can pretend to be British if I put my mind to it. 2. It's probably host dependent, but can we stop logging IP's? As has been shown time and time again hacking into this forum is child's...

    INTPforum is a model of the apocalyptic future

    Two machines can be seen standing atop the ruins of the once proud civilization, conversing about the most mundane things. The world is theirs, the whole warm and fuzzy biosphere destroyed in the nuclear dawn, or the decades long winter. Their vastly underutilized memory storage only contains a...

    Kung Fu Panda is a terrible movie and teaches us all about the failings of modern man

    Brief score: Background art 9/10 Character art 2/10, snake was ok Story 1/10 The story fails to introduce the characters as individuals and instead relies on proven stereotypes of their animal forms which is lazy and doesn't make any of the characters likeable or realistic. Similarly the...

    Have we screwed ourselves over with mass vaccinations?

    Long story short: targeted vaccination is effective at preventing a global pandemic, but may be disastrous when several Covid 19 variants are already present in the population. Two problems are possible: 1. It may create ideal conditions for the virus to mutate resistance to the vaccine and...

    Every impossibility that you can think of is just a logical error waiting to be resolved

    All ideas accessible by your mind can exist in reality. The only time when ideas appear impossible is when they are disconnected from the causal explanation of their origin, or in other words disconnected from the underlying logical structure. Try to think of something impossible and you will...

    Trance, Hardstyle, electro, EDM music?

    Super hard to find good hardstyle. I tried and it's the only fun track I got Can you recommend anything? Some good trance stuff I found recently: Uplifting trance is too slow and needs to be more melodic, full on trance needs less distorted moments and uses too much of the same synthesizer.

    "We are undeserving of this planet"

    Covid pandemic has shown how humanity is incapable of safeguarding against relatively simple global catastrophes. It could be argued that we are really lucky that nothing severe has hit us yet. It's obvious that governments are incapable of dealing with anything threatening. Depending on how...

    Sexualization of minors in movies and tv shows

    The thing I noticed is that movies and tv series are becoming increasingly sexualized. I think it's getting worse over time. This is mainly sexualization focused on children, teens and female characters. A few examples: Dark TV series, GoT, Cuties, 13 reasons why and a million others. Somehow...

    RPG with minimal to no speculative fiction

    I was long thinking of preparing a game where players have a very restricted access to the irrational realms of imagination. I often find magic or hi-tech muddled futurism to be a shortcut for the author to get to the point of the story where they want to have their readers. I tend to agree...
