  • More important, does idiot know monkey !?
    There is a reference to a paper on it but I’cant remember the reference right now.

  • I want to thank Mike Carnell, Robert Butler, Eric Maas, Andy U, Orang Utan, Stan, Stevo, Deep and BBpt for some very interesting exchanges. Darth, I cannot leave you out because your sense of humor and sarcasm has consistently been so much to the point and I have learned to appreciate your intellect and your with. To all of you, warm regards!

  • Jee, if that is all that you can come up with, I am very disappointed. I thought you were one of those who were to be taken seriously on this forum. Anyway, regards.

  • Caveman,
    Again, you are obviously not very well read:
    “The idiot is not our greatest problem. He is indeed loathsome. .. Nevertheless, he lives his life and is done. He does not continue the race with a line of children himself. … It is the moron type that makes for our great problem (Goddard, 1912, pp. 101 – 102).
    So why would an idiot…[Read more]

  • Stevo,
    You are absolutely right!!! But believe me, I am making very good money, and am very happy, unlike those who have obviously made it today’s  crusade to “bring me down”. (Tomorrow they will be bored with me and find someone else, but nothing has changed with them, because they are so perfect! … Seligman (1979) called that “constant e…[Read more]

  • Thanks for the compliment, now go back to the cave where you belong.

    Phil,
    You really have to do some more reading before you post on this site. It was exactly 13 chicken that had the most influential on the research for cognitive abilities that you so obviously have trouble with bringing into something as simple as a rank order. Remember that Thorndike preferred the chicken. As I noted earlier, Koehler preferred…[Read more]

    Phil,
    You are obviously not very conerversant with the latest evolutionary research on cognitive ability: You ommitted the octopus. As a result, I think you need to go back and catch up on the last 20 years of research in this area and come back with a more appropriate ordering system. It is always sad to see amateurs to not only try to…[Read more]

  • Just for clarification: Prof. Hans is not the same as the Hans who is associated with the monkeys. 
    What I love about the internet is the fact that it is an expression of Turing’s “revenge” to the British authorities for the fact that he never got officially recognized for his work on the enigma and the mathematical foundations of the comp…[Read more]

    BBpt,
    Please read your e-mail later tonight. I have a game that takes between 10 – 20 minutes, It brings home the very core principles of lean, is cheap and very effective especially for the audience that you will be targeting. (A clerical data entry person brought this to my attention when I ran the dot game … Imagine lean six sigma being…[Read more]

    Steveo,
    Nice try, but abc, no … I don’t go as low as 7th grade Latin (“si tacuisses” is a different story: That’s a quote from a late Roman emperor scolding a philosopher for not being able to shut his mouth, when he should have). I have no problem being accused of teaching monkeys (which is plain wrong because the monkeys taught Hans).…[Read more]

    Darth,
    I guess OB1KNOB was my only hope :-). But then Luke also got tempted once in a while :-). Compliments returned: I love reading and learning from your posts as well. However, I have given up on you ever turning to the “other” side (interesting how the “dark side” has a name, but the other side doesn’t) … and on that side the lights are g…[Read more]

    BBPT,
    I am not familiar with Ludic Game Training, but if you need a 2 – 3 hour “game” to introduce the core lean principles, please send me an e-mail at [email protected]. Good luck with your training. Regards.

    Eric,
    The term morophologie originates in the writings of Goethe and was taken up by a student of Anna Freud in an attempt to create a pscychological theory based on both psychoanalysis and Gestatltheory (Wilhelm Salber studied both with Anna Freud and Wolfgang Metzger). The language of the theory is almost untranslatable into English, but…[Read more]

Is it personal, does it have to do whith statistics and how it abandoned religion? Do you need spiritiual counseling, psychological counseling, six sigma counseling? Very difficulct to say what your true message is.…[Read more]
