Human Brain Analysis (Men Vs Women – A Must Read)


1. MULTI-TASKING
Women: Multiple process
Women’s brains designed to concentrate multiple task at a time.
Women can Watch a TV and Talk over phone and cook.
Men: Single Process
Men’s brains designed to concentrate only one work at a time. Men cannot watch TV and talk over the phone at the same time. They stop the TV while Talking. They can either watch TV or talk over the phone or cook.

2. LANGUAGE
Women can easily learn many languages. But can not find solutions to problems.

Men can not easily learn languages, they can easily solve problems.

That’s why in average a 3 years old girl has three times higher vocabulary than a 3 year old boy.

3. ANALYTICAL SKILLS
Men’s brains has a lot of space for handling the analytical process. They can analyze and find the solution for a process and design a map of a building easily. But If a complex map is viewed by women, they cannot understand it.

Women can not understand the details of a map easily, For them it is just a dump of lines on a paper.

4. CAR DRIVING
While driving a car, man’s analytical spaces are used in his brain. He can drive a car fastly. If he sees an object at long distance, immediately his brain classifies the object (bus or van or car) direction and speed of the object and he drives accordingly.

Where woman take a long time to recognize the object direction/speed. Man’s single process mind stops the audio in the car (if any), then concentrates only on driving.

5. LYING
When men lie to women face to face, they get caught easily.

Women’s super natural brain observes facial expression 70%, body language 20% and words coming from the mouth 10%. Mens brain does not have this.

Women easily lie to men face to face.So guys, do not lie face to face.

6. PROBLEMS SOLVING
If a man have a lot of problems, his brain clearly classifies the problems and puts them in individual rooms in the brain and then finds the solution one by one. You can see many guys looking at the sky for a long time.

If a woman has a lot of problems, her brain can not classify the problems. she wants some one to hear that. After telling everything to a person she goes happily to bed. She does not worry about the problems being solved or not.

7. WHAT THEY WANT
Men want status, success, solutions, big process, etc…

Women want relationship, friends, family, etc…

8. UNHAPPINESS
If women are unhappy with their relations, they can not concentrate on their work.

If men are unhappy with their work, they can not concentrate on the relations.

9. SPEECH
Women use indirect language in speech.

Men use direct language.

10. HANDLING EMOTION
Women talk a lot without thinking.

Men act a lot without thinking

Manage Email like a Boss

Email Icon

Email is a necessary evil that isn’t going away, my advice is to manage email like a boss. Well, like a good boss that’s savvy and effective.

Here are some tips to manage email:

  • Use Gmail (yes, especially for business) with the web interface as the primary means and the Microsoft Exchange emulation for IMAP support on the iPhone
  • Install the ‘Send and Archive’ button from Gmail Labs so that when you reply to an email it is also removed from the inbox
  • Install the ‘Auto-advance’ Gmail Labs option so that whenever you act on an email it automatically takes you to the next email
  • Install the ‘Hide Unread Counts’ Gmail Labs option so that you aren’t constantly distracted when new email arrives
  • Follow Getting Things Done (GTD) by David Allen and never read the same email twice in your inbox. Either reply right away if it’ll take less than two minutes or file it into the appropriate folder.
  • Don’t reply to every email — that’s right, if you get an email and don’t want to reply, archive it right away instead of letting it sit there and fester.

I’ve been doing Inbox Zero nightly for over three years with this approach and it’s worked great. Inbox Zero doesn’t mean you’ve replied to every email, rather, it means that every email is moved out of your inbox on a daily basis. Manage email like a boss and you’ll be glad you did.

What else? What are some other best practices for managing email?

Steps to Success

Step 1: Decide on your goal, and know your deadline.

It’s important to be absolutely clear on what your goal is, so you’ll know when you get there. A goal like ‘become famous’ for example is no good, it’s too vague.

‘Complete an animation course, create a 5 minute showreel and apply for work experience at 5 companies’ is much better. It might sound like a lot of hard work, and it will be. But now you’re clear on exactly what you need to do.

If there isn’t a natural deadline, like an exam, then choose a deadline, and write it on your calendar. This might move, but you need a date to focus on.

Step 2: Make an effective plan

Use our Brainsmart planner* and tips sheet* to organise everything you have to do in the time you have to do it.

*Planner and tips sheet are attached with the post.

Step 3: Think ahead: What sort of help will you need?

Look round corners – you now know what you’ve got to do and when, but will you need any expertise or practical help to get there? If so, don’t leave it to the last minute, contact people early.

Step 4: Stay motivated

A big goal will require a lot of hard slog, and a lot of persistence. You need to keep your energy and enthusiasm levels high, and this is within your own control. Here’s how to motivate yourself.

Step 5: Don’t get stressed

Easier said than done when your project starts to go off the rails… but if you understand what stress is, you’ll be able to manage it better.

Step 6: Prepare for the Big Day

Many people’s goals involve a ‘performance’ of some kind at the end, whether it’s an exam, a job interview, or an important audition. Anxiety about this big event can ruin all your hard work just when it matters. However you can reduce your anxiety greatly by taking control of the situation. Successful sportspeople know how to do this, and here’s how the rest of us can learn from them.

Step 7: Perform like a champ when it counts.

Time for another lesson from the world of sport psychology. Your brain’s like a computer in the sense it only has a certain amount of capacity for conscious thought. Worrying and wobbles are the result of your mind focusing on scary imaginings of Bad Stuff Happening. If you can, increase your focus on the positive aspects of what you need to do, then you’ll have less mental space left for anxious speculation. Manage your mind, in other words. Decide in advance what you’re going let it think about – it’ll make a big difference. Got all that? Now, go for it!

Talk a walk in your mind

Here’s a simple but very effective way to memorise a number of items in order, without writing them down. The ancient Greeks invented this technique so they could remember their public speeches and it’s officially known as the Loci System.

The idea:

All you need is a journey or a route you already know well. Then by mentally linking the items you want to remember to points along the route, you’ll be able to recall them not just in the original order, but backwards too.

Here’s how to do it:

Step One

Decide on the route you’re going to use. It should have as many stop-off points as there are items on your list. It could be a walk you take every day, or just a mental journey around your house, room by room. The key is you need to know it very well.

Step Two

What’s your first landmark (or room)? Let’s say it’s your front door.

Step Three

What’s the first item you’d like to remember? Let’s say it’s vegetarian sausages.

Step Four

Now – and here’s the key – use your imagination to link an image of sausages, to your front door. You might think of the door as being totally covered in sausages, including the handle which squidges in your hand as you open the door …. Or perhaps there are giant sausages swinging from the ceiling that bash into you as you try to get out. Whatever image you choose make it UNFORGETTABLE. Crazy, action-packed and full of noise and maybe even smells.

Step Five

Now repeat step 4 for your next item, at the next location.

Step Six

And do this again and again until you’ve created images for everything on your list.

Step Seven

Now test yourself! Take yourself back to the beginning of your route and think of your first location: your front door. And what item do you see there? (Correct answer: sausages. Easy!)

Step Eight

Recall all your items in order … and you’ll never need a shopping list again.

Advantages of this system:

Even if you forget one of the items, you can skip onto the next one no problem.

Use this technique for:

  • Remembering what to get at the shops.
  • Memorising a to-do list you think up while you’re on the running machine at the gym.
  • Memorising key points you want to make when you’re giving a talk or a presentation (the Ancient Greeks invented this system, and used it for exactly this).
  • Remembering lists for revision – for example the abiotic factors in biology that limit a species’ success.

Transform your humble memory route into a ‘Memory Palace’ by progressively adding in more and more memorable landmarks along the way.

Six Steps To Remember Every Single Name & Face

 

It’s all It’s all too easy to forget people’s names after you’re introduced to them. But here’s a simple technique that could change your life, and improve your popularity overnight … (potentially).

The idea

This technique helps you to make a memorable connection between the face you’re looking at and the name they just said. It takes a little effort at first but once you’ve mastered it, you’ll get quicker and quicker, and hey soon it’ll be almost like these people have got their names written all over them …

Here’s how to do it

1Step OneMight seem obvious but PAY ATTENTION when you’re told the person’s name.

2Step TwoIt’s good to hear the name more than once. So you could get the person to repeat it – or you repeat it. Perhaps ask a question.

3Step ThreeThink: what does that name remind me of? The name ‘Roz’ might remind you of a ‘rose’ for example.

4Step FourNow have a close (but subtle) look at the person’s face and decide what’s their most noticeable bodily feature. It could be a big nose, or freckles or a beauty spot.

5Step FiveNow use your imagination to link the name image with their noticeable feature. If Roz has a lots of freckles for example, you could imagine each of them turning into a tiny rose. If possible, make the link memorable! Funny, bizarre, weird – all good.

6Step SixNext time you see her, scan her face, and you’ll see those freckles again … and remember the rosebuds … and remember her name was like rose … Roz.

How do I remember Numbers?!!… Techniques for number= recall

Numbers can be hard to remember because they’re abstract concepts, but there are several techniques that will make a big difference.

Chunking

Simple but effective. If you have a long number to remember, break it down into manageable pieces, no more than 2-4 digits long. So 3361986010 might become 336 1986 010 To make things even more memorable, look for patterns or associations within each chunk. Eg. 336 makes sense because 3+3=6. 1986 is a date, what happened then that you remember? And 010 is nicely balanced. Or you could even make a % sign out of it.

Rhymes

Radio stations and adverts often use this technique to drill their frequencies or phone numbers into your head. Create a catchy song or rhyme that involves the number you need. Here’s a well known one: ‘In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.’

The Peg System

This technique takes a little bit of work to begin with, but is a much more powerful technique. It involves combining numbers with images. Here’s how to do it:

Step One

Decide on an image you’re going to use for each number from 0 to 9. These images are based on the shape of the number – so there’s a visual clue to help you remember them. Here are some examples you could use:

1 = a pencil, or a sentry, or a magic wand
2 = a swan
3 = a fork
4 = a yacht
5 = a hook
6 = an elephant’s trunk
7 = a cliff
8 = a snowman
9 = a balloon on a string

Step Two

Take a few minutes to get the images lodged in your mind.

Step Three

Now, each time you have to remember a number, invent a story using the respective images. Say you want to remember the number 4489. You could dream up a story which starts with two yachts (44) … then a huge snowman (8) comes along and jumps on them, blows up a balloon on a string (9) and floats off up to the skies. The more surreal the better – just make sure it all happens in the right sequence.

Use this one for:

  • Remembering dates
  • Memorising PIN numbers
  • Remembering important phone numbers

Phrases to Avoid in Conversation – What Not to Say in the Workplace

What Not to Say in the Workplace

Don’t say: “That’s not my job.”
Why: If your superior asks you to do something, it is your job.
Instead say: “I’m not sure that should be my priority right now.” Then have a conversation with your boss about your responsibilities.

Don’t say: “This might sound stupid, but…”
Why: Never undermine your ideas by prefacing your remarks with wishy-washy language.
Instead say: What’s on your mind. It reinforces your credibility to present your ideas with confidence.

Don’t say: “I don’t have time to talk to you.”
Why: It’s plain rude, in person or on the phone.
Instead say: “I’m just finishing something up right now. Can I come by when I’m done?” Graciously explain why you can’t talk now, and suggest catching up at an appointed time later. Let phone calls go to voice mail until you can give callers your undivided attention.
