Sure. That's why it's important to take notes during a lecture.michiguel wrote: When you verbalize things is when you actually pay attention to a given concept.
This is where I disagree. I am aware of the issue, I am not more or less likely to do it because of a random piece of paper. All it does is make me feel I'm being talked down to.That is why it is important to sign the "I won't shake my baby" form. The more stupid it looks to do it, the better.
Note that I never claimed this is some universal human truth. If it helps someone, great. It just doesn't do it for me.
Oddly enough, no. What I remembered on those occasions where a crying baby at three in the morning tended to drive me up the wall is that it's a baby and one should never lose control or act in frustration when dealing with a child. Particularly babies, where it is at best useless to lose your patience and become angry.By the time comes you have the impulse to do that, you immediately remember.
Not everyone has the same tolerance for frustration, of course.
I said I found it silly and patronising. I didn't say this was some universal human truth.Things that become "consensus" are easier to follow. It may not apply to Evert, that somehow is very aware of the problem, but it will apply to others. It saves lives. In other words, Evert is totally wrong on assuming that was silly. People organize those things for a very good reason.
