Advice for someone who just finished highschool? They should study the thing they are most interested in, but they don’t have any reason to be too stressed about it, because after the bachelor you can still get into other paths. The positions are quite similar even if you have different bachelors, so, so long as you know that you want to work with science, or law or economy, even if you choose different bachelors within science you will still be…

Where would you like to end?

How was the experience of the bachelor? During the bachelor they only give you information about careers in science, and it was only during my last year of bachelor that I had a subject where they told me about the business side. While you are inside you don’t see all the possibilities and it is only once you are out that you start seeing all the options. I tried research and I saw that it wasn’t for me and so…

Adam: How did you choose this path? Since young, I was always a dreamer and I enjoyed drawing, but my parents didn’t approve of it and wanted me to do a bachelor’s in engineering.

Mental Models (III)

Mental Models (III)

Why we should learn from our environment and be ready to constantly update our mental models. As humans and by using mental models we usually end up in a situation where we end up getting in our own way. It’s hard to understand a system that we are part of because we have blind spots, where we can’t see what we aren’t looking for, and don’t notice what we don’t notice. This happens because we forget that mental models are…
