Human Potential Project Online by Chris Majer

Our mission is very simple. We intend to revolutionize the practice of management!

Central to our work is the belief that the world does not exist as a permanent fixed reality. We human beings are not merely passive observers. We are intentional players, inventors, designers, and creators of our world. And to accomplish anything, we depend on everyday coordination with others. This is where HP2 makes its mark.

The Nature of the Mind

As you have heard us say, the mind is a highly evolved, highly effective, but very lazy pattern recognition device. The following piece was put together by researchers at Cambridge who were investigating the way that the mind functions. Without setting out to do so, they provided strong evidence for our claim. Cna yuo raed tihs? i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rsceearh at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod aepapr, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? The mind is a highly evolved, highly effective, but lazy pattern recognition device. It doesn’t bother with each and every letter, it looks for the patterns. It recognized the pattern of the word thing and thus even though you see it as tinhg the mind fits it into the pattern it recognizes.
