    Our belif in the variability of others and in the uniqueness of the self is especially powerful when it comes to emotion. Because we can feel our own emotions but must infer the emotions of others by watching their faces and listening to their voices, we often have the impression that others don't experience the same intensity of emotion that we do, which is why we expect others to recognize ou...

    For millions of years, human beings have conquered their ignorance by dividing the labor of discovery and then communicating their discoveries to one another, which is why the average newspaper boy in Pittsburgh knows more about the univers than did Galileo, Aristotle, Leonardo, or any of those other guys who were so smart they only needed one name. Communication is a kind of "vicarious observa...

    Remembering and experience feels a lot like opening a drawer and retrieving a story that was filed away on the day it was written, but as we've seen in previous chapters, that feeling is one of our brain's most sophisticated illusions. Memory is not a dutiful scribe that keeps a complete transcript of our experiences, but a sophisticated editor that clips and saves key elements of an experience...

    Because we do not realize that we have generated a positive view of our current experience, we do not realie that we will do so again in the future. Not only does our naivete cause us to overestimate the intensity and duration of our distress in the face of future adversity, but it also leads us to take actions that may undermine the conspiracy. We are more likely to generate a positive and cre...

    p 161 If we were to experience the world exactly as it is, we'd be too depressed to get out of bed in the morning, but if we were to experience the world exactly as we want it to be, we'd be too deluded to find our slippers. We may see the world through rose-colored glasses, but rose-colored glasses are neighter opaque nor clear. They can't be opaque because we need to see the world clearly eno...

    But time is no grapefruit. It has no color, shape, size, or texture. It cannot be poked, peeled, prodded, pushed, painted, or pierced. Time not an object but an abstraction, hence it does not lend itslef to imagery... p 133 The problem is that when we reason by metaphor and think of a dozen successive meals in a dozen successive months as though they were a dozen dishes arranged on a long table...

    Each of us is trapped in a place, a time, and a circumstance, and our attempts to use our minds to transcend those boundaries are, more often than not, ineffective. WE think we are thinking outside the box only because we can't see how big the box really is. Imagination cannot easily transcent the boundaris of the present, and one reason for this is that it must borrow machinery that is owned b...

    We have a large frontal lobe so that we can look into the future, we look into the future so that we can make predictions about it, we make predictions about it so that we can control it - but why do we want to control it at all? Why not jus tlet the future unfold as it will and experience it as it does? Why not be here now and there then? There are two answers. One surprisingly right answer is...

    在讲animal learning的课本上提及了这本书: “Habituation also determines how much we enjoy something. In his popular book, Stumbling on Happiness, Daniel Gilbert(2006) noted that 'Among life's crueliest truths is this one: Wonderful things are especially wonderful the first time they happen, but their wonderfulness wanes with repetition... ... When we have an experience -- hearing a particular s...
