Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

This week, Jeff Dubin will lead us in a discussion of budgeting and finances.

 

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is often swearing.

Resources:

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality: www.hpmor.com
-This fanfic is the most engaging way to learn what "rationality" is all about

LessWrong: www.lesswrong.com
-A community blog on rationality. The Core Sequences are most relevant to our meetup group. Also covers topics like AI and x-risk.

 

Everyone please bring a ferret.

    Don't be alarmed by the power outage in the area; the building is apparently still on, so we are, too.

    Thanks for the question Amanda. The best answer to your question is to read HPMOR to see for yourself. As posted in the description, it is an extremely engaging way to learn about rationality and how it can practically be applied to life, what it looks like to think in a well-reasoned way- as well as how various biases play out in our thinking. All of the information is based upon what you call "real information out there," which I presume to refer to scientific study such as behavioral economics, human decision making, psychology, and philosophical discussion. HPMOR is written by Eliezer Yudkowsky, a top contributor on LessWrong-- which is another of the resources recommended.
    These two are by no means an exhaustive list of helpful resources for learning about rationality- but certainly great, and, I would argue comprehensive, starting points.
