After all, how can I prove that I studied and learned something if I never put anything down about it?
Today’s Ted Talk, after several failed attempts to watch one on lying, which I gave up on after the video crashing at the six minute, thirteen second mark four times in a row, was about love.
It was, despite the fact that I tried to go for just a psychology video, a little bit of history, a little bit of psychology and a little bit of science all rolled up into social studies and love.
It’s hard to summerize what I feel about it, because I don’t entirely know what I feel.
There’s some belief that what she said is right, but there’s also some belief that there’s more than what she talked about; and clearer than how she said it.
There was the history of love, and of working women, all the way back past agriculture, which was pretty nice, to see that image. There was the psychology of the study itself of love; what triggers it and what makes it work. And there was also the science of love, how it physically affects the brain, different ways that the male and female brain work. It was rather interesting.
But I’m not yet grown enough to challenge her thirty years of work, and so I’ll only say that she certainly went through it with confidence!
