What does "conditioning" mean? Does it mean classical conditioning and how would it apply to humans? I've tried googling it but I haven't really got any answers and I know some of you guys are smart so yeah.
General IQ thread I guess, for the millionth time this week.
I think its referring to classical conditioning
Think about it like this, normalfags all tend to behave the same, right? That's because their behaviour is easily influenced by others, they tend to follow the majority
They are easily conditioned into following certain behaviours.
Just like a lot of people here.
Remember to always be critical of everything. Never be a slave.
Huh, that's a long time that I saw that picture.
Not on 4chan, on its original page.
It's from the high IQ people profiles page, isn't it?
Either way, OP, I recommend Paul Cooijmans.
You'd be surprised.
Ever wonder why everybody is so left wing? And why they all tend to have the same opinions?
You could say they've been conditioned by the media. If done subtly, it can affect even the not intelligent of people.
>Remember to always be critical of everything.
Reminder that the stupider one is, the more one stresses the importance of critical thought.
It's not even the Dunning-Kruger, it's just that one lacks better, more fitting remarks, regarding the specifics of the system (legal, mechanical, technical, transportative, biological, any at all) in question, so one's reduced in one's preaching to blanket stressings of rationality is important.
this would make more sense if we weren't talking in general about things in the first place. I'm sure he could elaborate on what he meant by critical thinking in each subject he was referring to.

Here's a new test for robots. Supposedly it should be "advanced" and for those who do well in other tests. You can write your answers and check them at the next page.
I used about one hour to solve them and scored 134. Afterwards I've solved most of them and wondered if they really are as hard as supposed.
Back to the topic, I don't think that Low IQ necessarily means that somebody is more prone to conditioning because the very nature of conditioning is to hijack behavior to induce a desired effect. Even high IQ people can be conditioned. I don't think by the strict definition of classical conditioning, somebody can't really just resist it.
