Blueprint: How DNA makes us who we are
The CAP outcomes are presented in four books and hundreds of articles. The study supported the evidence that genetics substantially influences psychological traits. For example, the study found genetic influence on specific cognitive abilities, such as verbal and spatial abilities, and different kinds of memory, like recalling names for faces and reading ability. The study also found that temperament is highly heritable. And it shows a significant genetic influence on behavior problems, like attention problems and loneliness.

Blueprint:How DNA makes us who we are
Robert Plomin is a psychologist and geneticist ranked as the 71st most "eminent psychologist of the 20th century." Plomin has run the most extensive and detailed twin and adoption studies in history, and his book Blueprint is about how genes influence our behavior. In this episode, we talk about why DNA matters. How much of who we are can contribute to the environment, and how much to our genes? Why children in the same family are different, and why parenting and schools do not make a significant impact, how the DNA revolution gives us the power to predict our psychological strengths and weaknesses from birth. And much more.

٢٧# الحجة مقابل الواقعية٢/٢
The Case Against Reality 2/2
If natural selection shapes our senses, then we don't see reality as it is. Instead, as Hoffman put it, our perceptions constitute an interface specific to our species. Spacetime is the desktop of this interface, and physical objects are among its icons. And all icons, whether a glass on your desk or a star, don't exist when no one perceives or observes them. Something exists when I see a water glass or a star; whatever it is, it triggers the perceptual system to create glass or the moon. But when I look away, I no longer generate that glass and cease to exist. Hoffman starts chapter six, titled Gravity Spacetime is Doomed, by predicting that all objects in space and time don't exist when not observed. He begins with the testable predictions from physic that a photon, when unobserved, has no definite polarization value. And an electron, when unobserved, has no actual value of spin, position, or momentum.

٢٦#الحجة مقابل الواقعية ١/٢
The Case Against Reality
Evolution has endowed us with senses that hide the truth and display the simple icons we need to survive enough to raise offspring. And our perception is not a window to objective reality. Instead, it is an interface that hides the objective reality behind the veil of helpful icons. Donald Hoffman says, I take my perceptions seriously, but not literally, and the book is about why we should do the same and why that matters.

٢٥#الذكاء العاطفي ٢/٢
The abilities to master love and work, as Sigmund Fruid put it, are distinguishing characteristics of a healthy life. To love and share life with someone, especially in our time, is not easy, and the book tracks the data on the divorce rate in the united states since 1890, when it was about 10 percent, and compares it with the current rate of divorce, which is close to 67%. The current divorce trend, as Goleman says, makes emotional intelligence more crucial than ever. The vast amount of research shows that there are emotional differences between men and women, partly biological. Still, Goleman says it also can be followed back to childhood when boys and girls are taught different lessons about handling emotions. A good example is how parents discuss feelings with a child; generally, parents are more advertent about talking about emotions with their daughters than their sons, exposing girls to more emotional information than boys.
