#ProtectingSight #415: Why you think you’re right — even if you’re wrong. White cataracts, sensory XT, mechanical fracturing, & visual association cortex. To finish first, you must first finish.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Julia Galef: Why you think you’re right — even if you’re wrong. “Perspective is everything, especially when it comes to examining your beliefs. Are you a soldier, prone to defending your viewpoint at all costs — or a scout, spurred by curiosity? Julia Galef examines the motivations behind these two mindsets and how they shape the way we interpret information, interweaved with a compelling history lesson from 19th-century France. When your steadfast opinions are tested, Galef asks: “What do you most yearn for? Do you yearn to defend your own beliefs or do you yearn to see the world as clearly as you possibly can?”” (ted.com description)

Excellent talk. Love her explanation of the soldier vs. scout mindsets.

2A. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1183: Beware of Sensory Exotropia. Excellent pearls.

2B. D. Brian Kim MD – #1: Mechanical Fracturing the 2-3+ NSC. Great case and narration.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Visual association cortex.

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. Gautam Baid – The Joys of Compounding: The Passionate Pursuit of Lifelong Learning, Revised and Updated (Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing Series). Chapter 25, “To Finish First, You Must First Finish.” Another insightful chapter which pays for the entire book.

I continue to enjoy books on value investing, lifelong learning, mental models, and more. Excellent chapters with amazing quotations.
