I've been trying to figure out a way forward from mindless wagecucking. I've taken community college stats but it was for psych students so remarkably shallow. Is there a way I could teach myself stats, analysis (I've done calc) and the like, and do projects on my own to demonstrate my expertise, that might allow me to find work doing data analysis or something like that without a degree? I am desperate for something, anything i can teach myself to get a better job. And reliably because while I can network to a degree in not very good at it.

>UwU what's this?

The results show that at this point, and regardless of other potential differences in age, funding, number of children etc., female professors had, on average, lower levels of scholarly achievement than male professors. The result can be an effect of promoting females to professor at an earlier stage in their career. Other variables that might affect productivity, or whether some faculty faced greater challenges or had to work harder than others to obtain the same apparent academic merit, is irrelevant for the conclusion that the publication criteria for becoming a professor were effectively lower for females.

Hello /sci/,

I will hopefully get my bachelor's in physics this summer, and then go on to get my master's in two years.

I love physics (especially theoretical), and I also love nature and the great outdoors, so my question is: how can I get an /out/ job as a physicist? I'm talking about a job that makes me spend time in remote natural places

Do autistic people really have no self awareness? I’m on the spectrum and yet I can still realize faults with myself and better them.

>> No.11551614

The ones with self-awareness are Aspies/High-functioning autistics

>> No.11551775

Its not that they lack self awareness. Lots of "normal" people lack self awareness. Autistic people have weak notion of "others" personhood/mind. I found out myself that I didn't see others as having a mind/personhood for the longest time(until my mid-late 20s). Even now I have to force myself and recall this notion that others have a mind/personhood when I interact with others. Its not a natural/intuitive response from autistic people.

How does this lack of knowledge/familiarity with other's "personhood" affect autistic person's life? Well, for one thing, it can make them seem aloof/distant. What it basically does for me is shuts down the simulation of others/world when I'm not focused on others. I can force myself to imagine what others might imagine/think, but its not a natural response. For the longest time, I was not aware that other people would "hang out" with each other or have social life after school/class. I've gone straight home after school or work, having never understood that people have "lives" outside of their work/school.

So you see, its not that autistic people dont have self-awareness. They do, I do. Its that we have a hard time understanding that OTHERS have self-hood.

There is no settled answer here. The best you can get is from a recent survey of expert opinions from intelligence researchers.

>> No.11551782

In Rushton & Jensen 2005, they suggest that default hypothesis should be 80% genetic, 20% environmental on the grounds that individual differences are explained by this model and that there is no reason to assume it's different between blacks and whites.

The picture does a good job of summarizing what it is, but I'll go into some more detail.
Glaucoma is a semi-rare eye disease that causes a buildup of pressure behind the eye and damaging the optic nerve; depending on what type of Glaucoma this can take several years, decades, or hours.
There are various treatments if it's bad enough, which begin with just medicine and end with surgeries that carve tunnel through your eye to help with drainage.
I'm twenty and have lived with an extremely severe case for thirteen years. I'm post bypass surgery, but I've started having my migraines again and no longer have insurance; let's have a thread before I lose vision in my left eye!

My point is not that the sum *actually* has this value, I know that assigning a value to it is nonsensical, just as with 1+2+3+4+5..., but the point is that the -1/12 stuff is pointless because even when starting with the same formula - 1-1+1-1+1... = 1/2, you can arrive at different answers.

Well yeah, playing around with divergent sums means you can get a lot of fun but incorrect maths. It's like dividing by zero and being surprised when you end up with funky shit.

Yes. Or by functional do you mean physical? I think octonions are used in theoretical physics.

>> No.11551387

The octonions are occasionally useful in group theory. All the exceptional Lie groups are automorphisms of (stuff related to) the octonions, and octonions can be used in some alternative constructions of finite simple groups.
I've never heard of anyone using sedenions for anything.

There's one professor who tries to introduce them as a possible GUT, but it seems they are way too tedious to use to be useful in the grand scheme of things. At least for now.
They also seem to contain particle modes which we haven't observed yet, so they are testable.
