Liking Metacognition

For me, understanding how and why people think creates a buffer against everything they do that hurts me. Bullies? Secretly, they're "insecure". Love? Just an evolutionary adaptation that keeps offspring & your partner happy.

"Nature vs. nurture" and all that. I love it.

As application of a thing is at least twice as important as knowledge that it exists... metacognition is the glue between the logical and the insane for me. I love knowing how to know too:) But hypercognition is tough for me, sometimes. I'm my own worst critic, usually. <br />

I agree with neuruonice, in that nature v nurture, is basically a double-take of same coin, while tossing it to examine its two different sides. This makes the subject of this debate always something of a finite interest while yet commanding an infinite number of possible explanations for each side's own existence.

For me understanding how & why people think helps me to apply logic to emotions.<br />
As for nature vs nuture, they are 2 sides of the same coin - the body is the subconscious mind with it's hormones and neurotransmitters.
