Food for thought, Home, Mental models

Suggested by a reader, here’s a quick post on time perspectives – plenty of connections to be made with investing from the video inside, right? Yes, as long as you retain a healthy skepticism. As one of the comments on Youtube says: “What’s funny is that if this was just audio I would have clicked off within the first few seconds.” In fact, it’s downright scary how the “coolness” of the presentation can lead one to “lower one’s guard” to data that’s not necessarily accurate or that answers not necessarily the right questions. Since we will soon have a post mentioning Dr. Karl Menninger, here’s a quote that applies to the case at hand: “One of the most untruthful things possible, you know, is a collection of facts, because they can be made to appear so many different ways.”

Grumblings aside… we wish we could draw like that.
