Hello /sci/

I know this isnt a space to vent nor expect answers that would be serious with getting btfo'ed to hell and back.

Im currently doing comp sci part time while working in IT. I have had a bad history with mathematics (poor educators and child trauma)
I feel utterly retarded that I cant seem to or takes alot of time to mentally do long multiplication or math in my head.
I forget alot stuff from what ive read or learnt while undertaking study.
Should I just do myself a favor and stop? has anyone else been there?
I have the desired, the want and strive to be able work in the industry im in but feel completely innept and have to read stuff over again.
Any advice would be greatful.

there's this guy i follow on youtube (pic for reference). same kind of interests; physiologically we kind of look alike; we actually happen to bear the same name; his parents have sort of the same temperament as mine; etc.

he's got the same MBTI / enneagram as I do (and i'm speaking cognitive functions wise, not your average 16personalities normie test. yes i've read jung)

he's basically me but powered up, with a better physique and overall higher level of skills (he's built himself a nice audience over time on youtube).

so is this it? am i just one instance of a certain subcategory of human, that happens to be on the lower end of the distribution curve vs him?

it's crazy how any kind of measurement i can think of, he's simply better than me at it. it's like i can see what I'd be like if I had better genes -- i'm not saying necessarily *different* phenotypes and stuff, just "improved" ones, with the same overall configuration.

am i oversimplifying things to the extreme or is there some truth to what i'm saying? please weigh in science bros

It's never just genes, it's always genes + environment.

>> No.15466847

It would appear so.

>> No.15466869


isn't the scientific consensus moving toward the idea that genes actually do play a larger role than the mere influence of a given environment? (vs the conservative idea that nature vs nurture is 50/50)

see this study for reference (PMID: 25985137) :

>> We have conducted a meta-analysis of virtually all twin studies pub-lished in the past 50 years, on a wide range of traits and reporting on more than 14 million twin pairs across 39 different countries. Our results provide compelling evidence that all human traits are heritable: not one trait had a weighted heritability estimate of zero. The relative influences of genes and environment are not randomly distributed across all traits but cluster in functional domains. In general, we showed that reported estimates of variance components from model-fitting can underestimate the true trait heritability, when compared with heritability based on twin correlations. Roughly two-thirds of traits show a pattern of monozygotic and dizygotic twin correlations that is consistent with a simple model whereby trait resemblance is solely due to additive genetic variation. This implies that, for the majority of complex traits, causal genetic variants can be detected using a simple additive genetic model.

Is it mangling the scientific process if your paper passes two separate rounds of peer review? If anything, it seems like this is indicating a flaw in the scientific process itself.
>In September 1999, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), upon a request by the APA to independently review the article, stated that it saw no reason to second-guess the peer review process that approved it initially and that it saw no evidence of improper methodology or questionable practices by the authors.

Is plastic more of a benefit to society, or no? There is reasonable argumentation that it pollutes the environment, is unhealthy for humans, and that these costs outweigh the merits. Argumentation in favor of plastic usage supports plastic a cheap and versatile resource that is easy to produce. Plastic sees utilization in almost all areas of contemporary daily life and to abandon or limit it would mean to damage the economy, by drawing from more expensive and scarce resources which can in turn lead to significant quality of life changes.

What do /sci/ anons think on this matter?

Also, what is the plastic engineering field like?

1. Plastics themselves are so inert that it's a problem. Is glass the same?
2. Most problems of "endocrine disruptor" are from additives not the plastic themselves. Those additive have far more uses besides plastics and can be removed if people accept again non-transparent/flexible and cheap plastics. Let's not even talk about direct contamination from sewage that contains a cocktail of drugs (including hormones), persistent organic contaminants, etc.

The microplastic hype is stupid and a filter for some groups, there's things far worse and harder to solve.

bits of plastic , glass, and rubber last forever. These are the three things I occasionally find in my yard. Majority of the time it is tiny plastic pieces, probably chopped up by a mower or blown in from somewhere else because it's light and floats. It settles in the grass and eventually joins the dirt on the surface layer. Rarely I will find one of each type when digging up to a foot in my yard. They sink but stay the same.
