@Rainb I like teaching things in new ways so that people understand better. :)
@ElizB Huh what?
Yeah, I definitely try to scope out what a person knows and understands, as well as how they understand, when I'm teaching things.

Q: How do we know if an answer is correct?

emptyThis is kind of a meta question and I'm sort of "thinking aloud" so bear with me, give me constructive criticism and I'll edit the question to reflect that. How do we know that high-ranking or designated answers to IPS questions are correct and not just the results of confirmation bias ? In oth...

Q: What is the name of the technique to pretend to has noted the other's idea in order to dismiss it?

OokerSay person A makes a proposal to B, and B reacts with a smile, an "uh huh", or an "is it?", so that A assumes that B receives it and just needs time to consider. But in fact B uses this technique to make A thinks so, in the hope that A won't ask about this in the future. Does this technique have...

@ExtrovertedMainMan I'm not sure identification requests like this are a good thing for IPS? Our terminology tag is more about the reverse (explain this term) instead of gimme this term, and I don't see what the politeness tag is doing there either?
Perhaps a meta question is in order.
10:09 AM
@Tinkeringbell maybe it is about politeness.
@Tinkeringbell There already was a meta question. Good. I closed it as off-topic.
@AJ Perhaps, but I found a meta question where there's two answers stating these are off-topic, so... closed :)
@Tinkeringbell And it was answered by you. :P
Hahaha yeah, that too :)
I can't believe I forgot about that question :)
Q: IPS-Related Questions Without Clear IPS Goals, Valid Only in the Case of a Definitive Answer

Upper_CaseI have in mind two questions, largely the same in content and approach, but for which I offered opposing opinions on voting to close: Is this a known Interpersonal “Anti-Skill”, if avoided could de-escalate conflict—or could it be original? I call it “barking” was a request for a word (or verifi...

Q: How do big groups of people form?

Matin N.Well recently I was watching a talent show, and there was a group of people who mocked some movie characters. The original group consists of about 100 people but there were only a few of them present at the show. My question is: How did these people get together in the first place? How did the pe...

Q: Medical Device Adoption

gatorbackA stubborn 80 year old is prone to falling: a cellular Applewatch with fall detection enabled would seem to be a good safeguard. What strategies are effective to convince geriatric luddites to adopt such technology?

5:19 PM
"Geriatric luddites". never heard of that before lol
5:41 PM
I had to google the word too ;)
