Good Reading — Too Much Coffee Bad for Introverts? —From Introvert Dear

From Introvert Dear

Coffee and Introverts

“Why caffeine affects introverts and extroverts differently

The reason why caffeine affects introverts and extroverts differently basically has to do with our differing levels of neocortical arousal in the brain, according to Science of Us. In other words, it comes down to how alert or responsive we are to our environment.

In general, introverts are over the optimal level of arousal — meaning, we’re more easily stimulated — and extroverts under the optimal level.

This means that consuming any kind of central nervous system stimulant, such as caffeine or even recreational stimulants, will move us further away from our optimal level of performance.”

Life as #INFJ — Explaining Yourself is Harder than Being Yourself

Living, Opinion, Theory
Being Yourself means sometimes you have to Explain Yourself

Not Fair.

My brain never stops.

But making my mouth catch up to what my brain is thinking of processing is almost impossible most times.

INFJ’s appear reserved and calm on the surface, when in fact, we have deeply chaotic and rich inner worlds. We rarely show these worlds to other people. We are fiercely guarded individuals.

Others may not understand why we like to plan things out or why we do not like things to change spontaneously. Our outer world must remain orderly because our moods are up and down and everywhere. — from Introvert, Dear

Math is Everywhere. Get used to it.

Theory

I don’t care who you are, you’re going to use math.

Math isn’t suppose to be fun or something a lot of kids wake up and say ‘yeah I’m gonna do some math.’

But it’s important. Like a lot of things in the Real World, it’s not the thing you want to be doing but you have to so you’re going to.

Teens in high school do not get a pass with this or should not in my book.

You don’t understand it? Well neither did I at first. Welcome to the club.

Get a tutor. Ask the teacher! Or open the book!

Free passes do not happen in the Real World and this is essentially what is being given to high schoolers with this proposal.

Setting up for failure

The US already lags behind in math and reading proficiency. Making math a non requirement does not make that issue go away.

Reevauluate how math is taught, offer extra help, but do not make it a non requirement. This will only hinder, not help our children.
