You are probably asking yourself, "Why do I need this book?" Well, maybe you don't. Consider the following questions and find out. 1. Do you have the feeling that you are a lot smarter than your efforts and grades indicate? 2. If you were given a comprehensive test today on material that you learned last semester, would you get a lower grade than you received originally? 3. Do you succeed in getting A's or B's but find you have to work very hard for them? 4. Do you spend hours studying and then perform poorly on tests? 5. When reading a textbook, do you reread the material often because you find it hard to remember? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, there is a very good possibility that this book will make a difference for you. Students who have used the YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK learning system tell us that the following benefits have occurred for them: * Their grades improve * They spend less time studying - up to one third less time * They remember what they have learned longer * They experience less academic stress * They feel better about themselves HOW DOES THIS SYSTEM WORK? In the book, you are given two self- evaluations that help you discover how your brain works best. Then step by step you are shown what you need to do during lectures, textbook reading, test studying and test taking to maximize your learning and performance. Everyone's brain is different and this book will show you how to use your brain in the most effective way. What you learn will go into long-term memory where you can use it, not just spit it back. The research behind this book is based on work done by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard and commonly known facts about language processing from speech and language research. Learning by most today is pure guess work. Our research has shown that 95% of all college students don't have a clue about how they should study for maximum results. This book is for all high school and college students. It wil

How Evolution Made Us Smarter Than We Think Douglas T Kenrick, Vladas Griskevicius ... as in the case of all other animals, natural selection has endowed modern humans with brains designed to make decisions in ways that consistently ...

Why do three out of four professional football players go bankrupt? How can illiterate jungle dwellers pass a test that tricks Harvard philosophers? And why do billionaires work so hard -- only to give their hard-earned money away? When it comes to making decisions, the classic view is that humans are eminently rational. But growing evidence suggests instead that our choices are often irrational, biased, and occasionally even moronic. Which view is right -- or is there another possibility? In this animated tour of the inner workings of the mind, psychologist Douglas T. Kenrick and business professor Vladas Griskevicius challenge the prevailing views of decision making, and present a new alternative grounded in evolutionary science. By connecting our modern behaviors to their ancestral roots, they reveal that underneath our seemingly foolish tendencies is an exceptionally wise system of decision making. From investing money to choosing a job, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, our choices are driven by deep-seated evolutionary goals. Because each of us has multiple evolutionary goals, though, new research reveals something radical -- there's more than one "you" making decisions. Although it feels as if there is just one single "self" inside your head, your mind actually contains several different subselves, each one steering you in a different direction when it takes its turn at the controls. The Rational Animal will transform the way you think about decision making. And along the way, you'll discover the intimate connections between ovulating strippers, Wall Street financiers, testosterone-crazed skateboarders, Steve Jobs, Elvis Presley, and you.

Outside Influences takes a refreshing stance on life’s journey to address the dynamic forces swirling around outside that affect the direction and ultimate meaning of people’s lives. Life’s journeys are a mosaic of experiences, encounters, interactions, and ideas. What happens on those journeys makes up the stuff of life and determines the outcome of the adventure. But most of what has been written about the journey, life, and success deals only with internal factors people can influence. In Outside Influences, serial entrepreneur Adam Ginsberg finally acknowledges and includes the myriad of outside factors that also contribute to the meaning of people’s lives. Adam shows that the elegant, complex choreography of inside and outside forces is not something to be feared, but something to be acknowledged and understood, with more than sixty catalytic concepts to stimulate thinking, stretch readers’ minds, and help people calibrate the healthy tension between where they are and where they want to be. Not just about gaining plain old success, Outside Influences guides readers to coming to peace with the contradictions so apparent in life. Readers learn to understand what is happening when the idiosyncrasies of the system manifest themselves and appreciate the bounty or cope with the challenges and, ultimately, achieve new levels of success.

When a business executive who has investigated and implemented numerous initiatives to improve company performance isn’t getting the results he wants, he tries something different. He remembers reading an article about a leader—Andrew Miles—who credited his success to emotional intelligence. This intelligence, the article said, helped him engage his workforce and produce exceptional results. It doesn’t take the executive long to arrange a meeting with Miles, who tells him that business leaders must rely on physical, mental, and emotional effort—with emotional effort being how we manage our emotions to ensure we deliver high-quality results more frequently. To cultivate emotional intelligence, Miles says, a leader must focus on six distinct competencies: emotional self-awareness, emotional awareness of others, authenticity, emotional reasoning, emotional self-management, and inspiring performance. Miles explains that emotional intelligence underlies our self-awareness, empathy, leadership, and resilience, which are all skills fundamental to our success. Join a business executive as he seeks to understand his emotions, change how he relates to others, and improve the people around him by learning from The Emotionally Intelligent Leader.

How to create the life you want in alignment with your soul’s purpose • Reveal your soul aptitudes, limiting behaviors, and past-life karmic issues • Discover 14 easy-to-use spiritual tools to strengthen your intuition to profound levels and develop an inner source of guidance and wisdom for any situation • Learn why the Law of Attraction doesn’t work for most people and how to make it work for you Like an enlightened spiritual teacher, you, too, can tap in to the infinite wisdom of the cosmos to create a life of deep meaning and purpose. The key is integrated intelligence--your innate capacity, often experienced as “intuition,” to instantly draw upon knowledge beyond the confines of the five senses, from past, present, and future. Integrated intelligence enables not only a connection to the wisdom of the universe but also access to your soul template, revealing your self-limiting behaviors, karmic issues from past lives, and soul aptitudes--the abilities at which you excel. With knowledge of your soul template, you can successfully create the life you were meant to live in alignment with your soul’s purpose. Providing 14 easy-to-use spiritual tools to activate your integrated intelligence, Marcus Anthony shows you how to tap in to the wisdom of your soul template, distinguish the voice of ego from the voice of your inner sage, and strengthen your intuition to profound levels, thereby developing a trusted inner source of guidance. Explaining how the mind is not a shallow pond but an ocean of competing voices and energies, he reveals why the Law of Attraction doesn’t work for most people: any vision you attempt to manifest must be aligned with your soul template or the competing voices will act against it. Revealing how to bring the mind into presence to get “the secret” to work for you, Anthony shows how to use integrated intelligence to identify and live your true calling and create the life you want while fulfilling the deeper needs of your spirit.

The only thing greater than fear is hope ... "Frustrations with jobs and employers, mortgages and car repairs, college debt and marital conflict make us so overwhelmed we can't even sleep. And thanks to wonderful drug advertising, very few of us are not on some sort of toxic substance to either help rest our minds at night or cope with stress during the day. Ask yourself if this is not true. People are taking their own life over this stuff, which makes me wonder if we've missed out on some secret. When wounded souls feel they have no other option but to remove themselves from this earth before their time, we'd better start uncovering some hope, and soon." Let's be honest. Our world is broken. We patch it up with all sorts of things, but underneath, where we really live, there is everything from anger, regret, lust, despair, and pain to fear, guilt, depression, greed, and unforgiveness. We are bombarded with distraction, deception, and way too much self-absorption to even recognize truth anymore. Is there any way out of this mess? Yes! There is indeed. It is found in one person, who gave everything to rescue us. His name is Jesus. The Prized Possession will help you discover who Jesus really is and why He is the only hope for hurting hearts. You will see why self-absorption and self-reliance are highly overrated, and how they keep us far from the freedom we need to see beyond our circumstances. Within these pages are true, personal stories sure to inspire your heart and stretch your understanding of God and His unrivaled love for humanity. If you have questions about life, come along on an exciting journey toward hope, purpose, and redemption. There is a very generous God just waiting for you.

What constitutes successful thinking in business? What are some of the techniques used by top business minds in order to solve problems and create value? Diaminds breaks new ground in addressing these questions. Mihnea Moldoveanu and Roger Martin, creators of the Integrative Thinking curriculum at the Rotman School of Management, draw upon case studies and interviews - as well as theories and models from cognitive psychology, epistemology, analytic philosophy, and semiotics - to offer a new conception of successful intelligence that is immediately applicable to business situations. The 'diamind' (or dialogical mind) is characterized by bi-stability (simultaneously holding opposite plans, models, courses of action in mind while retaining the ability to act), meliorism (increasing the logical depth and informational breadth of one's thinking processes), choicefulness (retaining the ability to choose among various representations of the world, the self and others) and polyphony (thinking about the way one formulates and solves a problem while at the same time thinking about the problem itself). End-of-chapter exercises encourage readers to examine and re-engineer their own thought and perception patterns to develop these qualities and cultivate their own 'diaminds.'

Every day millions of people log onto Facebook to connect with friends. Each time we do this we are creating and reinforcing habits. We have routines for checking news from friends, looking up birthdays and family updates. When the interface of Facebook was changed in 2011 there was widespread condemnation. We are, in short, creatures of habit. Habits may help us to carry out our daily routine but they often cause us trouble, from unhealthy eating and smoking, to poor study skills and work routines. We've all experienced that endless frustration when we try to kick a bad habit. The frustration you have now will soon be over. Premier cognitive scientist Art Markman draws on all the latest scientific research to help you succeed in beating those bad habits. With the help of Smart Change, not only will you be able to understand just how habits are formed and maintained but you will be equipped with 5 essential tools to help you change your behaviour for the better and, what's more, influence the behaviour of others at work and at home.
