An Exercise in self observation

January 16, 2008 at 12:44 pm 3 comments

Can you watch yourself think? It’s a useful skill. Useful enough to spend some time trying to learn, and since we learn by practicing… here’s an exercise.

The internet is filled with a new form of ‘magic tricks’ – a particularly good one is located here:

So… the challenge here is – watch yourself ‘solve this’ and post the running commentary that went on in your mind as you puzzled your way towards understanding what’s going on. It’s ‘obviously’ not magic – but what is it?

If we get a dozen responses – then we’ll have a nice little collection of problem solving thought. Good luck.

    I drop a comment each time I appreciate a article on a website or I have something to valuable
    to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is caused by the passion communicated in the article I read.

    And after this post An Exercise in self observation | The Sisyphus Chronicles.
    I was moved enough to post a thought 🙂 I actually do have a few questions for you
    if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of these comments come
    across like written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you make a list all of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    It’s very straightforward to find out any topic on web as compared to
    textbooks, as I found this post at this site.
