Why the Myers-Briggs test is totally meaningless   #Psychology #Personality
This isn't a test designed to accurately categorize people, but a test designed to make them feel happy after taking it. This is one of the reasons why it's persisted for so many years in the corporate world after being disregarded by psychologists.
• The Myers-Briggs uses false, limited binaries. “There is no such thing as a pure extravert or introvert”, Jung wrote. 
• The Myers-Briggs provides inconsistent, inaccurate results Research has found that as much as 50 percent of people arrive at a different result the second time they take a test, even if it's just five weeks later.

It's no more scientifically valid than a BuzzFeed quiz.

Toujours bon de découvrir de nouvelles initiatives libres dans le domaine du médical ! Entièrement REST, serveur en C++ (dommage, pas en python ;-) ), à tester !

The idea is simple: help doctors diagnose patients by giving them a cheat sheet, a collection of photos of over 1,000 different conditions.
VisualDx uses thousands of photos to help time-strapped doctors diagnose their patients faster. But, fair warning, looking at the photos will probably make you sick.

This is why "Are you sure?" dialogs don't work. Rather than asking your user if they're sure they want to do what they just told your app they want to do, design to allow undoing actions.

"But Cassidy!" you say, "Some actions aren't undoable!"

That's a BS excuse.

Sure, deleting a file isn't a able to be undone. So why are you tying it to a button press? Let the user choose to "delete" the file, but then give them a grace period where you don't actually delete it, allowing it to be undone. Whether that's as long as the app is open, a few seconds, or 30 days depends on your use case.

Sending an email to thousands of subscribers is something that definitely can't be undone. But adding an email to a queue can be. So don't tie the actually sending to a button press. Make the big red send button add the email to the queue to be sent out in, say, 10 minutes. That gives the user some time to do a final review and "undo" if they notice a last-second mistake.

So yeah. That's my rant for today. :)
This is your brain after repeated security warnings. Any questions?

MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language — so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn.

Something to read for sure: http://www.satisfice.com/blog/archives/1509
By James Bach and Michael Bolton. In the beginning, there was testing. No one distinguished between exploratory and scripted testing. Jerry Weinberg's 1961 chapter about testing in his book, Computer Programming Fundamentals, depicted testing as inherently exploratory and expressed caution about ...
