Discussion article for the meetup : Less Wrong Melbourne dojo: Reacting to evidence and surprises

WHEN: 20 August 2017 03:30:00PM (+1000)

WHERE: Henley Club, Melbourne

Melbourne rationality dojo, 20 August at the Henley Club in central CBD, Melbourne.

THIS MONTH:

Reacting to evidence and surprises.. Drawing on psychology research, and practical application inspired by the CFAR workshops, we discuss how to improve the accuracy of pour view of the world and create habits to achieve our goals.

This will be a lightly facilitated group discussion, so wear your thinking caps. As always, we may draw on the content in the Less Wrong Sequences and top books in relevant fields. If you'd like to think ahead - and sound smarter ;-) - see section 1 of http://www.rationality.org/resources/rationality-checklist

BRING:

  • An inquiring mind, and observations you may have on the topic.
  • Perhaps a snack or drink to share. (Bonus points for healthy choices.)
  • Interested friends.

WHEN:

3:30pm to 6:30pm (and then optional dinner). Come early to catch up, and the meeting proper begins at 4pm sharp.

At about 6:30pm some of us generally head for dinner nearby, and you are welcome to join us.

WHERE:

The Henley Club Level 1, 8 Rankins Lane, Melbourne CBD https://goo.gl/maps/vmFL6JeKQSD2

It's down a lane (off Little Bourke, near Elizabeth) and one flight up a stairwell. If you have trouble, text or call Adam on 0412 064 542.

WHO ARE WE AND WHY DO WE MEET?

The Less Wrong Melbourne Rationality Dojos are a chance to polish your planning, motivational, critical thinking and other rationality skills. We welcome new members who are interested in exploring rationality. We're "aspiring rationalists" and always open to learn.
