📚 3 Good Articles for You

How to be enough
by Allie Volpe (10 mins)

  • Psychologist Maytal Eyal highlights an "epidemic of self-hatred" where individuals feel pressured by a culture obsessed with self-improvement, leading to excessive self-criticism and the adoption of rigorous routines and lifestyle changes that often don't address deeper feelings of inadequacy.
  • The concept of the "hedonic treadmill" suggests that people naturally adapt to both positive and negative life changes, maintaining a baseline level of happiness regardless of achievements or acquisitions, which leads to a perpetual cycle of wanting more but not achieving lasting satisfaction.
  • Effective strategies to counteract this cycle include setting meaningful personal growth goals, practicing gratitude, and reevaluating one's baseline for satisfaction, allowing for a healthier balance between appreciating what one has and aspiring for genuine improvements.

Doing more, but learning less: The risks of AI in research
by Mike Cummings (5 mins)

  • Narrowed Scientific Inquiry: AI could limit the scope of questions, experiments, and perspectives in research, leading to "illusions of understanding" where researchers believe they understand more than they do.
  • AI's Role in Research: Describes four AI archetypes in research—Oracle, Surrogate, Quant, and Arbiter—each potentially replacing human judgment and reducing scientific diversity and methodological variety.
  • Need for Diverse Perspectives: The paper calls for a discussion that includes insights from humanities and social sciences to recognize and mitigate AI's epistemic risks, stressing the importance of maintaining diverse perspectives in scientific research.

by Mark Ellwood (11 mins)

  • Behavioral Influence: Colors like pink and red are used strategically to influence behavior, such as calming inmates or encouraging help, though evidence of their effectiveness is mixed.
