ARE ASTOUNDINGLY CLOSE TO WHAT THE astoundingly close to what the ortrays as the ideal balanceI must admit at this Yolanda's Genius point that much of the data displayed in the book supports these conclusions In fact the authors are excellently deft at backing up their assertions with the results of experiments or research they ve conducted This is admirable However I cannot help but to be conclusion shatteringly skeptical of any result so clear cut and so seemingly advantageous Oh look at that one might say after an experiment it just so happens that we reerfect This is something that any decent scientist should immediately find suspectAll that said I did uite enjoy reading this book This is one of the few books I ve ever read that demands to be written in I don t just mean because of all the little Fettan puzzles and exercises the authors throw at you either There are also just many sections in which you ll find a result so completely counterintuitive a statement so spurious and ripe for mocking or a test that begs to beerformed on your friends that you ll want to whip out a Die Kunst Des Zeichnens: Die grosse Zeichenschule: Praxisorientiert und gut erklärt pen and annotate the whole book This is what I did something I have never done with any other book before or since and I don t regret itI would say that those interested in time as a subject or modernsychology as a discipline would do well to read this book but I offer this recommendation with two substantial caveats The first is that any reader would be well advised to enter this book in a very skeptical mindset and "THE SECOND IS THAT ANYONE READING " second is that anyone reading book ought to have a en at hand Don t be sueamish about writing in it It s the best way to do this Those who are easily swayed in their opinion by lots of numbers or simple conviction should stay awayRegardless I hope the authors and their many colleagues continue to do follow up research on this subject both to see if these ideas hold up to deeper inspection and also simply to gain greater insight into the human experience I was looking for the ositive antidote to Zimbardo s Lucifer effect and since I m a chronic The Villain: The Life of Don Whillans procrastinator with ballooning anxiety issues I figured unraveling the timearadox so as to change my life wouldn t be a bad lace to start Problem is the book never really got going I kept waiting for that big ah hah but instead I got some fairly common sense ideas about how to have a ositive outlook on time I did learn a couple things some about time and some about myself1 A ast negative erspective is an unhealthy time erspective I ve recently had a shift towards a negative erspective of my Times of Bede past so I found Phil s advice that I find something to learn from the negative experience and get over it helpful2 Another way to gain a strongast The Catechism of the Council of Trent positiveerspective is to keep daily gratitude lists I imagine this is an idea that City for Sale: Ed Koch and the Betrayal of New York predatessychology by a few thousand years but I still found it usefulDepending on who you are there may be a few other nuggets in here but if you re going to go looking I suggest you do just that look for nuggets Don t go in reading every word and completing each exercise in anxious anticipation of The New Psychology of Time That Will Change Your Life Review to come soon.

characters The Time Paradox The New Psychology of Time That Will Change Your LifeExcited that I stayed up late one night listening to hour long lectures on the internet and immediately added this book to my Paradise Run purchase ueue I m a dork I know Partly as a result of this andartly due to my scientific disposition I was than a little disappointed with this book when it came time to actually read through itIts main ISSUE IS THAT WHILE THE BOOK IS THOROUGHLY GROUNDED is that while the book is thoroughly grounded the actual science of sychology insofar as sychology can be said to be a Help Me, Jacques Cousteau proper science it is written and constructed in such a way as to read much like one of those dreaded and rightfully derided self help books I was a bit surprised not see an endorsement by OprahHowever this in itself is not enough for the book to fail as an enterprise Despite my disdain for the genre I am nowhere near close minded enough to write something off simply because it makes use of conventions which do not appeal to me What let me finally dismiss this was the fault in the science itself I do not know enough about the actual experimentation that resulted in many of the statistics and analyses in the book itself so I sadly cannot speak as to how research into this book s central topic can be improved This is unfortunate as I think the topic itself is fascinating however flawed the conclusions of the book might be My issue with the science of the book however lies with its transparent and largely unaddressed biasI laud the authors inclusion of the Holistic Present as an experience worth addressing but so much of the rest of the book shows if not an ignorance of cultures outside the authors then at least an offhand dismissal of them The authors associate being religious with a high tendency toward the transcendental future something that applies only to the Abrahammic religions and even then only to the mainstream interpretations thereof They isolate Buddhism as worth examining an excellent idea but lump Hinduism and all Chinese religions into a vast and nebulous other category I understand if this is due to the statistical sample used for the development of this theory but if that s the case then they really should haveursued broadening such data to refine their theory long before going so far as to Dignity Rising 1: Gefesselte Seelen publish aop science book about it Further even within the religious and cultural aradigm that the authors grew up in white wealthy Christian western countries oversimplifications of subcultural distinctions abound For instance Zimbardo being of Italian descent briefly examines the differences between southern and northern Italy and offers a disturbingly simplistic view on this complex relationship He does something similar with the economic differences between dominantly Catholic and dominantly Protestant countries which feels almost like stereotypingPerhaps

The Time Paradox The New Psychology of Time That Will Change Your Life by Philip Zimbardo and John BoydThis book is about changing your erspective on time It focuses on different views of the ast resent and future The basic views discussed are Past negative Past ositive Present fatalistic Present hedonistic Future and Transcendental future This is an organization schema which I find interesting but a bit contrivedThe authors claim that having an overly resent view of time can lead to hedonism and low impulse control having a negative view of the Renoir past can create depression and stress having an overly future orientation can limit your enjoyment of theresent Their goal is to help a Nebular Sammelband 5 - Galaxis in Panik person have a balanced view of time They claim that time is your most valuable asset because it cannot be recoveredI liked the idea of a Transcendental future viewpoint a view that there is to this world than our current life time either in the religious orhilosophical sense leads to greater happiness People who believe in god religion or have a clear Nightwing: On the Razor's Edge positivehilosophy tend to live better lives This includes ideas like environmentalism ethics and a world view embracing hopeThis book does not tell you how to manage your time It helps you think about and unveil what your own viewpoints on time are The authors give several uestionnaires and exercises to make you think about Bakunin: The Creative Passion planning for the future how you see yourlace in time creating goals and have an inventory on time to complete the ZPTI Zimbardo Time Perspective InventoryThis book is written for a general audience It is a The Donegal Woman popularsychology title There is an extensive bibliography and index I enjoyed reading it There was uite a bit to think about Each one of us has a different relationship to the Martha's Chickens and the Pirates presentast and future We may be classified as The Necromancer, or The Tale of the Black Forest predominantlyresent Amstel Girl: Playing With Destiny past or future oriented Then this orientation may be fatalistic orositive Most of us are mixtures of the above but we all seem to have a dominant tendency For the record futures are the healthiest resents most inclined to be late or take drugs and asts fatalistic to be stuck in life and depressed The new Zimbardo Boyd book is a crossover of a opular science book and self help manual It discusses what a healthy balance is offers inventories to check what orientation the reader redominantly has and then strategies to unhealthy tendencies Even though this book was far from the Hiam promise of changing my life there were some things I enjoyed there Time inventories were fun False memories were revisited there is a lot of researchointing to the fact that memories can be both implanted with apparently little effort and recovered The caveat with those is that both true and false memories can be recovered An analysis of a suicide bomber was uite interesting as well even though it was obvious enough just clad in a different of a suicide bomber was uite interesting as well even though it
