Intuition, the “Secret Sauce” for Expanding Innovative Thinking

 

By Martin Mark

 

 

In my five decades of exploration into innovative thinking, I have found that negative self-talk may be the greatest obstacle to success. It can dull our intuitive capabilities, and create or support narrow, fearful, and limited thinking. Negative self-talk, (would, could, should, but, what if?, may, and try) is of little value in helping the mind free itself from ordinary, or reactive thinking patterns.

The key for the innovative thinker is to focus on using inquiry-oriented words such as “who, what, why, where, when, and how?” When doing R and D, and In your private and public conversations, ask questions to bring you both the answers you need and the freedom that the right answers create. Doing these things can help you create and focus your sense of vision. Without a mental vision or a stated mission, life seems aimless.

 

 

 

By Norman Lear Center

 

 

The innovative thinker needs to think of things that excite them in a positive way.  They need to think about art, sailing, philosophy, learning about history, or even how their innovation will make the world a better place.  They need to focus on things they can do to reach or fulfill that vision. Remember, that without a vision or a mission, life has little meaning and may seem aimless.

Once the innovative process is in full swing, intuition may show up. Students of intuition in the innovative process know there are many forms of intuition.

Researchers have discovered that intuition is generally experienced through…

  1. physical sensations (kinesthetic),
  2. emotions, and feelings,
  3. symbols and images (mental)

 

Let’s explore each of these distinctions

  1. Physical Sensations: Physical (Kinesthetic) intuition involves the experience of physical sensations that communicate information. Those with this ability to feel physically “comfortable” or “uncomfortable” about something may experience this as a gut feeling, a physical pain, or something that excites their sense of passion.
  2. Emotional Intuition: This is usually experienced as a vague or specific feeling that has no explanation, but is usually right. For example, you might feel slightly depressed because you know something is wrong; you actually become sensitive to the emotional states of others around you; you recognize messages in their physical posture or you automatically have a certain feeling arise when specific messages are received. It is not an intellectual process but rather it happens right there at that moment.  Those who experience intuition on an emotional level (called emotional intuitives) often say phrases such as “I like” and “I don’t like,” or “this feels good or bad to me.” They also respond to requests from others and make decisions based on how they feel. If they are not aware that they do this, which is often the case, they may even experience a feeling without realizing that they are picking up thoughts and feelings from another person.
  3. Mental Intuition: This form of intuition may seem almost intellectual in nature: It may simply be an internal conversation you are having with yourself about a solution to a problem. It might also appear as a brainstorm in the shower, a hunch, or a nagging thought that won’t go away. This is especially the case for a person who is not normally obsessive about certain things, thoughts, or ideas. These thoughts may reflective of what we normally consider to be about common sense, or recognizing what seems obvious. Intuition is not logical, though it might initially be experienced as if it is.

According to my friend Nancy Rosanoff, a respected expert and writer on intuition, “Most often, people have a combination of the above three, though one form may be dominant. Rarely is someone totally one type. We categorize them only to indicate that there is more than one way to perceive intuitive information.”

Clearly, the innovative thinker needs to recognize the power of intuition in addition to logic, statistics, and the process of trial and error (heuristics).

Most of my Medium stories that are related to self-improvement, life lessons, mental health, and gaming are anchored into the concept of Applied Game Theory. This idea explores how and why people make certain choices. Researchers into game theory have won over twenty Noble Prizes, and the movie “A Beautiful Mind” is about the life of John Nash, one of the pioneers in game theory.

3 Tips to Achieve Massive Success by Applying Uncommon Sense and Game Theory

Image for post

This blog is a ·6 min read

There are many effective approaches to problem-solving, and decision making in applied game theory. Sometimes, the most effective approach is to ignore what seems obvious, logical, and rational. I have come to call these theories un-common sense. It is not that they are actually illogical it is that the logic of them is not obvious on the first appearance.

Tip #1 — Seek out unexpected facts or distortions when you are solving a problem. Many people are familiar with this way of thinking through Black Swan Events (BSE). A BSE is an unpredictable event that is beyond what is normally expected of a situation and which has potentially severe consequences. When dealing with complex and extreme problems simply using critical thinking and deductive reasoning — the process of reasoning from one or more statements (premises) to reach a logical conclusion — simply won’t work. One must also seek out unexpected facts or distortions to that orderly sequence of data. It is these distortions that may inhibit or even assist us in problem-solving. Immersing oneself in game theory strategies is the solution here.

Tip #2 — Go beyond traditional approaches to rational thinking: Generally speaking, virtually all problems and obstacles can be addressed through critical thinking — The systematic ordering of information in error correction and detection schemes.

Of course, the application of critical thinking to problem-solving, and obstacle removal, as well as approaches to unexpected irrational or unexpected events like BSE all originate with mathematics. Though we are not going to deal with extreme problems and obstacles in this article it may be useful for the advanced critical thinker to know that BSE, and other uncommon sense approaches system are essential to understanding things like chaos theory.

One need not be a mathematician to understand basic logical, and rational thought. Common sense will get you where you need to go, and if more is needed simple addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication will do the trick. Any common-sense approach to a problem is likely an expression of this way of thinking.

When one is confronted with an extreme problem such as a game theory concept called The Monte Hall Problem, it is the uncommon factor that is likely to lead to the solution. This also applies to some of the challenges that appear in our daily lives. There are some things in our lives that cannot be easily planned for, controlled, or even defined other than to say, “It is the unexpected.” Sometimes these things show up in a negative form and you don’t even recognize them when they happen. I call these “Un-intended Negative Consequences”. Applied Game Theory has won many Nobel Prizes for addressing these types of issues.

Tip #3 — Keep an eye out for unintended negative consequences: These don’t usually happen immediately and that’s why they can be so devastating. Un-intended negative consequences normally develop over an extended period and have a momentum of their own that one may not so easily separate from.

Examples of non-linear factors include extreme weather, unexpected violence, unruly crowds, anything that we commonly call “acts of God”.

All things that appear as uncommon sense may not be the result of external events. There are some internal factors or elements in our being that we are unaware of but which constantly affect who we are and how we think. Often we are unable to move forward on a goal or a vision if we are limited by what seems like an irrational obstacle. Obviously one cannot transcend irrational elements through logic. Yes, there may be logic hidden in plain sight, yet we just can’t see the logic that is there.

One can only adjust and budget for these factors and somehow figure out how to integrate them into daily life. These obstacles are almost always non-sequential and unexpected. There are no trends or patterns you can evaluate to predict for them. All you can do is recognize them when they arrive, compensate for them, and wait them out. The American actor-comedian Dennis Leary has a saying about this which is explored in the very funny and poignant video link below : “Life is tough! Get a helmet.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9VX8g8cDTo

Many consider what I have come to call non-linear events, to be negative but this is not necessarily the case. If you are impatient, have a poor support system, or like to be in control of everything — all of the time — the arrival of a non-linear factor can be frightening, or even overwhelming. But it doesn’t need to be so. It can be positive, serendipity if you will. A simple example might be that you are pulled over by the police because your car’s tail light was not functioning and you were unaware of it. Nevertheless, the officer who pulls you over chooses not to issue you a summons. Sometimes the non-linear factor presents us with serendipity — some effect where we accidentally discover something fortunate, particularly while looking for something else entirely.

There is a subtle link, a thread, or pattern between common and uncommon sense. This why non-linear events are not always as surprising as one might think. There is a subtle skill that some people have of being able to decipher where this pattern lies. Thus, what often appears as an accidental discovery or serendipitous event is actually the end result of subtle, even unconscious factors that bring an individual out of seeming chaos to a sudden unexpected discovery.

A self-actualized person must live in uncommon/common sense reality simultaneously. They have a full experience of the peak experience that comes from a highly evolved aesthetic sensibility and an appreciation of detail and order. They also have a naturally self-regulating and intuitive form of knowledge and expression.

Among some of the great thinkers who explored the distinction between common and uncommon sense and the linear and non-linear are Beethoven, R Emerson, von Goethe, Jefferson, and Adam Smith.

In fact, a person who understands applied game theory can actually create order out of chaos if they master uncommon sense. This is what happens when a vision comes to fruition.

Below is the book I wrote on the basics of game theory. I wrote it for nine- year-olds. If you can play Tick-tac-to or checkers you’ll understand it.

Applied Game Theory is the Best Approach to Achieving Happiness

 

 

 

 

Among scientists it is the name used to describe systematic concepts that were designed to explain why and how individuals and organizations strategize, i.e. make decisions when one person (or more than one other person) might also affect the outcome of the decision. This concept is so important that researchers in the field have won dozens of Nobel Prizes including the two awarded this year

Today, (2020) game theory has become an umbrella term or ‘unified field’ theory for thousands of games, most being rational approaches to many different defined interactions including relationships in business, spirituality, competition, sports, romance, and even interactions with nonhuman players such as computers, animals, and plants.

Another way of describing game theory is as the observation of a set of ideas and numbers that describe the past, present, or future state of something particularly strategic interactions between two or more individuals or groups (players) in a situation containing set rules and outcomes. Gamer theory used in a number of disciplines and can be applied to make individual choices in everday life. The theory has most notably used as a tool within the study of economics, particularly in politics, sports, and international affairs. The economic application of game theory can be a valuable tool to aid in the fundamental analysis of industries, sectors, and any strategic interaction between two or more firms or individuals who need to strategize to create maximum benefit at the lowest possible cost.

How is game theory connected to happiness? Happiness can mean different things to different people. What game theory, especially my approach, known as Harrison’s Applied Game Theory (HAGT) can do is, reduce the ways in which people suffer.

 

Suffering is disruptive and at times necessary mental, emotional, psychological, and also a spiritual experience of unpleasantness and aversion associated with harm or threat of harm. On the positive side, suffering can contribute to how you organize meaning in your emotional world and much more. One should never assume that all suffering is negative. The key is to understand which suffering is essential and which is a self-created illusion.

 

 

 

 

 

For the unaware individual, it is often a negative experience, especially if this individual has made poor choices in the past.

 

Compassion, one of the most worthy, and admired of human qualities; often comes from recognizing the suffering of others. Their suffering may present great meaning and direction to your own life, motivating, and also inspiring you to serve others in need.  This service, in turn, creates a larger sense of community.

What determines how intense your suffering is or will be? The origin and cause of suffering; its processes, the meaning it presents to the individual who seems to be suffering; its related social, personal, and cultural behaviors; the knowledge of how to manage, reduce, or eliminate the suffering; and the benefits one might accrue for having suffered will all influence the intensity of that suffering.

 

Add to this the frequency of each occurrence, plus the concurrence of mental, emotional, psychological, and also spiritual factors involved. Now by combining these with the duration of the suffering, and you have a wide range of experiences related to suffering. If you are to understand the meaning of your life it is essential that you explore how and why you suffer.

 

The Meaning of Life

All human suffering, whether necessary or self-created, is tied to obstacles that have meaning for us.   Such an obstacle

may be associated with some physical or psychological discomfort, or spiritually speaking, from the “pain of longing” – the seeking of something deeper than the world of form. Who can say what it might be?

 

 

 

 

Transcending obstacles define much of what goes on in life. Think about it.  It is likely that you function day to day on “automatic pilot,” then suddenly you experience a usually unexpected obstacle. Now, this obstacle might be walking up the steps of a non-functioning escalator, or waiting in a long line at the post office. It may be something equally annoying like a sudden red light that causes you to hit the brakes on your car.  These types of challenges are what get your attention.

 

When things, events, or people limit your freedom, these “obstacles” take on meaning. We are also often drawn to things of great beauty, sensuality, and elegance. These things also have meaning. So as you can see, to notice something, positive or negative is to give it meaning.

 

What does it mean for something to have meaning? This is an important question. Many great thinkers have proposed that all meaning is based on your perception as well as shifts in your perception.

 

Many of us go through life unconsciously. We each decide arbitrarily that some things are important while others are not. Something might have meaning now that did not have any meaning just a few moments ago.

 

Does ‘meaning’ have to have a particular quality or quantity to it? Will any sense of meaning do? How would you even know if something had more than a superficial meaning? What’s the link between meaning and significance in daily action? If something has meaning for you, does it have ‘meaning’ because it reinforces your sense of being – or is something deeper going on? Is meaning anything more than what grabs your attention?

 

 

 

 

 

Your answers to these questions about the “meaning of life” may have great implications for how you think, make choices, use language, and communicate with others in the process of daily living. Without this inquiry, you may be destined to a life of confusion or intellectual, emotional, and spiritual numbness.

 

What Harrison’s Applied Game Theory does is offer a person the ability to be more effective, efficient, precise, productive, and self-aware. It also gives creative and innovative thinkers the opportunity to create greater meaning in their life by making a measurable difference in the world.

Let’s explore Applied Game Theory and the Importance of History in Strategizing. It has been said that if you don’t understand history you are likely to repeat it. This is especially so if you are seeking to be more EEPPSA (Effective, efficient, precise, productive, and self-aware. The skilled gamer theorist and strategist studies history to isolate essential patterns. This does not need to be complex.

 

 

 

 

Whether it’s the history of thanksgiving, military strategy, or business success a good place to start is the history channel which has a pop-culture sensibility but plenty of interesting questions, Of course, you can Google History and work your way in from there, I learned a lot just watching the movie American History X, If you search history online lots of interesting stuff will pop up, another way to learn about the past is to take today’s dates and look up this day in history or on this date in history, you can look up today in history, some ethnic groups celebrate certain times of the year to explore their history such as black history month, some seek hardcore history fetching every small detail of the narrative, others flow through YouTube history.  Whether you are seeking fact-based clear history or fact-based  revisionist history the journey is the same, If you are interested in specific subjects you can check out the history channel schedule for history channel shows on the subject

 

Applied Game Theory can help you to connect the dots correctly, and isolate the Dots ……….You May Have Missed

On the surface the issue is simple. Anti-democracy Communist China is bad, democratic Hong Kong is good. I’m a big fan of freedom of speech and clearly the Communists are not. Still, the question arises, why has Hong Kong been separate from China all these years? If you study history and look at it all through the perspective of applied game theory things get a bit fuzzy.

Watch the video below and you’ll see what I mean.

 

After watching this video I think you can understand what I mean concerning the history of Hong Kong and history in general. Things are seldom black and white. This is where applied game theory and gamer psychology can be such a powerful tool.

 

 

The fact is that if you did even a little, serious, fact-based research you could find short articles and videos to explain basic facts from different political, social, and, economic perspectives. A good place to start is the history channel which has a pop-culture sensibility but plenty of interesting questions, Of course, you can Google History and work your way in from there, or watch historically driven films, even if fictional. I learned a lot just watching the movie American History X.  If you search history online lots of interesting stuff will pop up.  Another way to learn about the past is to take today’s’ dates and look up this day in history, on this date in history, and you can also lookup today in history.

 

 

 

Some ethnic groups celebrate certain times of the year to explore their history such as black history month, some seek hardcore history fetching every small detail of the narrative, while others flow through YouTube history for short 5-minute video tips.  Whether you are seeking fact-based clear history or fact-based revisionist history the journey is the same. If you are interested in applied game theory and being more effective and efficient, there are specific subjects you can check out on the history channel. See the schedule for history channel shows on the subject.

 

 

Though there may not be one “right point of view” there are certain facts most critical thinkers can agree on even concerning such controversial subjects as:

  • The History of Thanksgiving
  • Why the American Civil War Happened
  • The source of the problems in Hong Kong
  • Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza
  • What happened in the American Revolution – For instance, The Boston Tea Party did not happen in any way as described by most history books. Oh, and if you don’t know what the Boston Tea Party is, there is a challenge right there.(No it wasn’t an actual Tea Party). Look it up!

 

So what is the meaning of history? History” is an umbrella-term that relates to past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information about these events. The definition of history is drawn from the ancient Greek word, historia, meaning ‘inquiry; knowledge acquired by investigation’. Essentially history is the study of the past.

Events occurring before the invention of writing systems are considered prehistory. ” Scholars who focus on history are called historians. The historian’s role is to place the past in context, using sources from moments and events, and filling in the gaps to the best of their ability. Written documents are not the only sources historians use to develop their understanding of the past. They also use material objects, oral accounts, ecological markers, art, and artifacts as historical sources. In a sense, you could, if you wish, become a skilled amateur historian, a person who solves puzzles by organizing historical facts, material objects, oral accounts, ecological markers, art, and artifacts as historical sources. Still, there is a difference between being a gatherer of historical data point and just making stuff up.

 

 

As Daniel Patrick “Pat” Moynihan (March 16, 1927 – March 26, 2003) the respected American politician, sociologist and diplomat once said   “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” In real-time this is important for anyone, whether a Zionist, “boycott Israel” activist, Black Lives Matter Supporter, or gun rights-second amendment constitutionalist, to keep in mind as they wildly Tweet without seeking out historical facts that are not only not hidden but are sitting there in plain sight.

So let’s look a little closer at the history of History

Herodotus, a 5th-century BC Greek historian is often considered (within the Western tradition) to be the “father of history,” or, by some, the “father of lies.” Along with his contemporary Thucydides, he helped form the foundations for the modern study of human history. Their works continue to be read today, and the gap between the culture-focused Herodotus and the military-focused Thucydides remains a point of contention or approach in modern historical writing. In East Asia, a state chronicle, the Spring and Autumn Annals, was known to be compiled from as early as 722 BC although only 2nd-century BC texts have survived, and throughout the aboriginal world history has been passed down through the oral tradition. Is one approach superior to another? Who am I to say. Still, if we wish to transcend old clichés such as “history is written by the winners” we are going to have to put our thinking caps on and do a little research, research that transcends our cognitive biases and logical fallacies about what happened, where and how did it happen, and who was involved or affected by it happening?

 

 

History, like gsme theory also includes the academic discipline which uses narrative to describe, examine, question, and analyze a sequence of past events, investigate the patterns of cause and effect that are related to them. Historians seek to understand and represent the past through narratives. They often debate which narrative best explains an event, as well as the significance of different causes and effects. Historians also debate the nature of history and its usefulness by discussing the study of the discipline as an end in itself and as a way of providing “perspective” on the problems of the present.

 

Stories common to a particular culture, but not supported by external sources (such as the tales surrounding King Arthur), are usually classified as cultural heritage or legends. History differs from myth in that it is supported by evidence. However, ancient influences have helped spawn variant interpretations of the nature of history which have evolved over the centuries and continue to change today. The modern study of history is wide-ranging and includes the study of specific regions and the study of certain topical or thematic elements of historical investigation. History is often taught as part of primary and secondary education, and the academic study of history is a major discipline in university studies.

Political Correctness Guidelines added to Scrabble – As Reported – on the BBC

 

 Applied Game Theory, and Gamer Psychology

Welcome to my Applied game Theory Newsletter. This is the place you will get real facts, not fake news, or the hype of wish-full thinking. Read on and you will learn how to create winning strategies while becoming more effective, efficient, precise, productive, and self-aware.  Today’s report is about Political Correctness in the World of Competition Scrabble

Today, Leaders of the Scrabble tournament community in North America are voting on whether to ban the use of racial and homophobic slurs. This is an example of political correctness 2020. I’m not saying doing this is a bad thing. It is, however an example of a trend.

 

 

The vote will decide whether the words will be removed from the North American Scrabble Players Association (NASPA) list of accepted words. Though I have searched I have not found as many political correctness articles as I thought I might, so I decided to tackle the subject

 

 

You may ask – What is the meaning political correctness?  Why is this such an important story?”  You might even ask  – Why do people dislike political correctness?” The answer is that it goes to the very core of the culture war over what has come to be known as Political Correctness or PC.

Do you think people have taken political correctness too far? Obviously the people at the Scrabble Association don’t think so. Let’s explore political correctness pro and con, as well as the history of the term.

 

 

 

 Listen carefully – Political correctness is a term used to describe measures,  policies, or language, intended to avoid disadvantage, or offense to those of particular groups in society. In the media and public discourse, the term is generally used negatively and as a pejorative with an implication that these policies are excessive or unwarranted.  Since the late 1980s, the term has been used to describe a preference for inclusive language and avoiding language or behavior that can be seen as excluding, marginalizing, or insulting groups of people considered discriminated against, disenfranchised or disadvantaged or especially groups defined by sexual orientation, gender, race or religious affiliation.

 

 

What started out as mildly sarcastic has become serious business. Consider that in its early usage the term politically correct was created by leftists in the 1970s and 1980s as self-critical satire.  Back then the usage was ironic, rather than a name for a serious political movement. Essentially  It was considered an in-joke among leftists used to satirize those who were too rigid in their adherence to political orthodoxy, especially by the new Left concerning positions taken by old-line communists.

 

 

The modern pejorative usage of the term emerged from conservative criticism of the New Left in the late 20th century. This usage was popularized by a number of articles in The New York Times and other media throughout the 1990sturned the term into a meme and a Regerating Thought Processes (RTPs). The term was further fueled by the debate surrounding Allan Bloom‘s 1987 book The Closing of the American Mind.  The term gained even further currency in response to Roger Kimball‘s Tenured Radicals (1990), and conservative author Dinesh D’Souza‘s 1991 book Illiberal Education.

One might say that concerning this term conservatives used a bit of tricksterism to flip the meaning of the term politically correct. Commentators on the political-left in the United States contend that conservatives use the concept of political correctness to downplay and divert attention from substantively discriminatory behavior against disadvantaged groups, and on this point, they may be right. Many progressive thinkers also argue that the political right enforces its own forms of political correctness to suppress criticism of its favored constituencies and ideologies. In the United States, the term has played a major role in the “culture war” between liberals and conservatives. Still, it was a suprise to many that somehow the humble, non-political, and highly correct game of Scrabble somehow got pulled into all of this. After all, what is scrabble about?

 

Here we have a word-game in which two to four players score points by placing tiles, each bearing a single letter, onto a game-board divided into a 15×15 grid of squares. The tiles must form words that, in crossword fashion, read left to right in rows or downward in columns, and be included in a standard dictionary or lexicon.

Just think how difficult it would be to force Scrabble to be politically correct? After all, the game is sold in 121 countries and is available in 29 languages. Over 150 million sets have been sold worldwide, and roughly one-third of American and half of British homes have a Scrabble set. As for groups dedicated to Scrabble – there are approximately 4,000 Scrabble clubs around the world.

What are your thoughts on political correctness?. I’d like to hear them.

Home Page and an Introduction to Applied Game Theory

Welcome

This website is dedicated to the study, exploration, teaching, and application of Applied Game Theory and gamer psychology in its many forms.

Don’t be scared off by the word “Theory”.  Applied game theory is a simple and easy system to learn and to use. It is one of the most important systems for making the most efficient, effective, precise, productive, and self-aware choices.

What is game theory? The easiest way to define game theory is a way purpose of it was to address situations where two or more parties (called agents or players) make a choice between two or more alternative situations/strategies. As you can see game theory can be an invaluable tool for winning in fantasy football, sports betting, making predictions, or learning how to become wealthy through investing. I have known many a typical gamer who can master pro gamer by applying game theory and gamer psychology.

Putting my approach to game theory, HAGT – Harrison’s Applied Game theory is so simple to use that a small child can learn it quickly and intuitively.

Of course, people have been applying gamer psychology since prehistoric times, both in tribal behavior, through reciprocal altruism, and in competition in all forms.

 

 

So, when was game theory created or codified? What are the origins of classical game theory? This way of observing what we now refer to as behavioral economics was organized as an important concept in back in the1942, though the application of the concept goes back to prehistoric times.  Another way to define game theory is the study of human conflict and cooperation within a competitive situation. Classic game theory was first introduced by John von Neumann (mathematician) and Oskar Morgenstern (economist) in their 1944 book The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. This system has won over a dozen Noble Prizes for problem-solving researchers over the last five decades and continues to do so.

The question is how can a person apply game theory to survive and prosper in daily life or even change their life for the better?

 

 

I have used Applied Game Theory to fine-tune how I run my life, on a daily basis for over thirty years.  I actually created this website to give you and others the same opportunities I have had for achieving wealth, success, freedom, and the chance to serve others as a philanthropist.

 

 

 

This website is organized to offer you entertainment, tips, techniques, strategies, and some free and (some for a fee) tools to use applied game theory to take you to the next level.

If you are new to the concept of game theory and gamer-thinking let me tell you a bit about the history of game theory and how I took it out of the prison of academia into real-world applications. Keep in mind it is so easy to understand that even a child gets it pretty quickly.

 

 

If you are a beginner here, the important thing to know is that there are two main branches of game theory:  win-win cooperative, and win-lose non-cooperative game theory. Win-lose non-cooperative game theory deals largely with how intelligent, rational individuals interact with one another in an effort to achieve their own goals, generally, within moral and ethical boundaries, without concern for the impact of their win upon other players.

 

 

 

 

 

My personal passion, and hopefully yours as well is exploring how game theory can be applied to more everyday situations. For example, you can explore taking on a regular job, starting your own business, becoming a sports bettor, or invest in stocks, commodities, or even in Fantasy Sports.

 

 

 

Your payoff, a game theory term, in this case, is a combination of the benefit you gain from how much money you make, and the loss incurred by the time/effort spent on engaging in the path to making that money.  The agents are other investors, players, agents, and or your competitors.  Your optimal strategy will depend on how tough each path to wealth is, how strong your competitors are, and the quality of the resources available to you. This is a fact in investing, in sports betting, and also in fantasy sports.

 

 

 

 

If you were to formalize the above problem by formally describing how each person is believed to act with numbers and equations, game theory can tell you what the optimal strategy is, or what is expected to happen when following a given strategy. In your everyday life, you probably solve an approximation of this problem without formalization or complex mathematics.

 

 

 

 

This is both the strength and weakness of classical game theory. It focuses on how rational individuals are likely to behave. Of course in the real world, humans are emotionally driven-irrational creatures. Much of game theory is limited in how it can address irrationality. In other words, playing chess with a dog makes more sense than trying to figure out what makes a human tick through classical game theory.

 

 

 

As both a student and teacher of magic, stage mentalism, strategic thinking, and hypnosis for over forty years, I came to the understanding that there are many areas of human interaction that the logic-based elements of game theory are insufficient to address.

 

 

The breakthrough for me was when I was able to meet and had long conversations with Dr. Harvey Slatin. Dr. Slatin was an American physicist and inventor and was the 23rd scientist recruited to work on the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos, New Mexico in 1942 where he worked on the isolation of plutonium. During his time at the Manhattan Project he often played poker with the pioneers of game theory including John von Neumann.  When I met him, he was already 94 years of age. Dr. Slatin was at that time the last surviving member of his Special Engineering Detachment (SED) relating to the Manhattan Project, where the Atom Bomb was developed. By coincidence, while researching the pioneers of game theory online I came across Dr. Slatin’s name. Later, when I and my wife moved to the small and isolated Hamlet of Stamford, NY it turned out Dr. Slatin lived there. I reached out to him and he befriended me. During the last three years of his life, Dr. Slatin generously mentored me on classic game theory as I created my practical philosophy, now called Harrison’s Applied Game Theory.  Much of my work is built on what I learned from him. Thank you  Dr. Slatin.

So now that you know my story, let’s focus on your needs. With advances in the gathering of data and the analysis of that data, it is now easier than ever to game the world. With the right attitude, the appropriate emotional state of mind, the right skills, the best mentoring, and an effective community of peers, applied game theory can be the perfect tool for analyzing strategies that deal with competitive situations. These are the situations where the outcome of our choices and actions depends critically on the actions of other participants. Whether you are a video-gamer, sports better, an aficionado of fantasy sports, a prepper, a Lifehacker, an entrepreneur, or an investor.

 

 

 

 

If you are looking to have greater success in your life, want greater financial freedom, and want to learn how to win the game of life than you have definitely come to the right place.

Tips on FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, the Best Way to Play Fantasy Football

Ask Lewis About  Fantasy Football and  FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

 

The Game Theory Gamer

Information, Entertainment, and Products Related to Game Theory, Games of all Types, Gamification, Strategic Thinking, the Video Gamer Lifestyle, and Gamer Psychology

 

Q. Lewis, what are the basics of FIFA 20 Ultimate Team and Fantasy Football.

A.  Let’s begin with “How does fantasy football work?Basicallly  The participants serve as general managers of virtual professional  football Clubs, often from the Premier Leagues. The competitors select their rosters by participating in a draft in which all relevant  players are available. Points are based on the actual performances of the players in the real-world competition.

 

 

 

 

I’m addicted to FIFA 20 Ultimate Team?  If you are as well, you have come to the right place.  I have been a student of sports analytics and applied game theory, and fantasy football and fantasy soccer for many years.

In this article, I’m going to share with you insider information which will change your entire playing experience.  Click on the instant access button below and Check out all of the incredible free details and information.

 

 

Let’s begin here. often “What are the best fantasy football apps  Or What is the best fantasy football site?” For me, it is FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

A friend once asked me “Why do you play fantasy football?”  The truth is that I love games of all types, gamer psychology, game theory, and fantasy sports of any kind, especially fantasy football. These really fulfill this need.  Still, there are challenges here. To most of us, it can be really frustrating when you happen to come across an insanely expensive player, or a great team that has all in-form players, with some top tier players like Messi and Ronaldo who each cost more than 2 million FIFA coins in the market. Worse still, you know that you might never ever get see 2 million coins in your life, which basically means there are only a few options left.

 

 

If you want to get those top players, you need to make a lot of coins by basically trading in the  FIFA market. Fact is, trading is usually so very boring and difficult especially if you are trading manually. And if ever you are going to become an expert at trading in order to afford the top players and teams, you will have wasted a lot of your precious time which you would have otherwise used playing and enjoying some more games, or even doing something else that’s more fun.

Fortunately however, because of this unique problem, a guy by the name Mike Miranda came up with what is known as, FUTMillionaire Trading Center to help players like us out. FUTMillionaire Trading Center is a fantastic private community comprised of professional FIFA traders. This community helps ordinary FIFA players like me and you become extraordinary traders (or trading experts), and make millions and millions of FIFA coins.

 

 

FUTMillionaire Trading Center helps users a lot as it has an exclusive Members Area which provides information on what is working best in the market, and what the expert-recommended selling and buying price is on the FIFA market. That’s just half of it, the best thing about FUTMillionaire Trading Center is that they feature Members’ only automatic trading programs which do all the FIFA trading for you. FUTMillionaire also offers actual trading methods which you simply need to follow so as to attain FUT’s Trading excellence.

 

Click on the instant access buttom below and Check out all of the incredible details and information.

 

 

 

What makes FUTMillionaire even better, is that all of the programs and trading knowledge which you find inside will also help you make actual money (real cash) with FIFA. As a matter of fact, I have been making a good amount of extra income by simply selling my excess FIFA coins on eBay. This has allowed me to purchase some other games which I enjoy playing once in a while.

 

 

At the moment, there are 2 modules, FIFA Ultimate Team Millionaire Autobuyer module, and the Autobidder module, which bids for items, trades 24hrs a day when you are at school or at work, and searches for all the best deals. This is actually how all of the top traders normally end up making those millions, and eventually afford those amazing teams you encounter.

 

As for me, the FUTMillionaire Trading Center is a must have for any real FIFA Ultimate Team Gamer out there. I definitely recommend it, and you should check it out today and start enjoying the many benefits FUTMillionare Trading Center offers.

Ultimately My passion for FUTMillionaire Trading Center comes from my passion for Game theory. Game theory is the branch of mathematics concerned with the analysis of strategies for dealing with competitive situations where the outcome of a participant’s rational choice of action depends critically on the rational actions of other participants. Game theory has been applied to contexts in war, business, and biology and has won economists many of the Noble Prizes awarded in the 21st century. It is the perfect system for success in any fantasy sport.

I have been successful at the game of life, mainly through my ability to predict how people are likely to act irrationally in certain situations. Through this skill I developed a system called HAGT, Harrison’s Applied Game Theory. Of course, it is one thing to have a theory, and something else all-together to apply a theory to making money. I have dedicated my gamer psychology skills to making money in affiliate marketing, creating and promoting my own courses on-line, and engaging in sports betting and fantasy sports.

Tips on How to Get Rich from AskLewis: What is a Credit Union? A Short Tutorial

 

Welcome to My Wealth-Building and Investing Newsletter. This is the place you will get real facts, not fake news, or the hype of wish-full thinking. Read on and you will learn how to create wealth by investing wisely. This blog is taken from a lesson in our course on WealthHacks.

The site is designed to entertain, educate, and guide deep thinkers on the Path to transcending obstacles, solving problems through gamer psychology,  and accessing the best investing tips and conscious business practices.

 

 

 

 

 

For a passive investor, one of the best places to begin growing wealth is with a Credit Union. In the early stages, this is how investing works using game theory. When using gamer psychology for investing, or when you are investing during a recession it is best to start slow creating a financial safety net, in case you lose your job or you need money for necessities during a pandemic or some other worst-case scenario. If you are a more advanced investor and have an interest in a Warren Buffett Influenced Investing System click on the Hundred Dollar Bills Below…

 

Investing with a Credit Union

What is a credit union? A credit union is a member-owned financial cooperative, democratically controlled by its members, and operated for the purpose of promoting thrift, providing credit at competitive rates, and providing other financial services to its members. Many credit unions also provide services intended to support community development or sustainable international development on a local level.

Worldwide, credit union systems vary significantly in terms of total system assets and average institution asset size, ranging from volunteer operations with a handful of members to institutions with assets worth several billion US dollars and hundreds of thousands of members. Credit unions operate alongside other mutual and/or co-operative organizations engaging in cooperative banking, such as building societies. Credit unions and investing go hand in hand. Some folks, want to save but also want to make money faster than they can with a Credit Union, but with less risk than the stock-market.  If this is your interest explore this Complete Analytics-Driven Sports Fantasy Football and Sports Betting System. It’s based on the ideas presented in the book and movie Moneyball. Press on the play button below.


 

Credit unions differ from banks and other financial institutions in that those who have accounts in the credit union are its members and owners, and they elect their board of directors in a one-person-one-vote system regardless of their amount invested. Credit unions see themselves as different from mainstream banks, with a mission to be “community-oriented” and “serve people, not profit”.

Credit unions offer many of the same financial services as banks, but often using a different terminology; common services include share accounts (savings accounts), share draft accounts (checking accounts), credit cards, share term certificates (certificates of deposit), and online banking. Normally, only a member of a credit union may deposit or borrow money. Surveys of customers at banks and credit unions have consistently shown a significantly higher customer satisfaction rate with the quality of service at credit unions. Credit unions have historically claimed to provide superior member service and to be committed to helping members improve their financial situation. In the context of financial inclusion credit unions claim to provide a broader range of loan and savings products at a much cheaper cost to their members than do most microfinance institutions.

 

Credit unions must make enough surplus to cover expenses, otherwise, like any other business, they cannot continue, in which case they can become insolvent and cease to exist; the effect on those with funds deposited varies between jurisdictions.

Several factors combine to put credit unions at risk of failure. They may not be allowed to lend enough money to enough people who are willing and able to repay because of their rules on responsible lending. When debtors get into trouble, they may repay liabilities such as payday loans with high interest rates first, leaving the credit unions last. In some cases courts, after ruling against debtors, they have been allowed to pay off their debts with small payments, often free of interest, over a long period.

 

Credit unions differ from larger banking chains in two distinct ways:

  1. One key difference is that a credit union is a not-for-profit institution.
  2. Credit unions are member-focused institutions. A credit union is a cooperative, which means it is owned and  operated  by  its members, as opposed to being owned by its stockholders like a bank. Your initial membership deposit makes you a part owner of the credit union.

 

There are many advantages to investing through a credit union. If you pass the membership requirements, credit unions have a lot to offer over a regular bank:

1. Higher Interest Rates: This applies all deposit accounts including savings, money market, and checking accounts. Only online banks offer rates that are competitive or, in some cases, better than the rates offered by credit unions.

2. Lower Loan & Credit Card Rates: Credit unions offer the same financial products as banks, but they are much cheaper. Most people use their local credit union for car purchases because the rate is normally lower than dealer financing and because commercial banks are normally a percentage point or two higher than credit unions. Credit unions also offer low APRs on mortgages, personal loans, and credit cards.

3. Lower Fees: Credit unions have few fees compared to national banks. In fact, many offer checks, withdrawals, and electronic transactions free of charge. Many also offer checking accounts with no minimum balance and without a monthly account servicing charge. This could save you hundreds of dollars a year. Credit unions also charge less for bounced checks and overdraft fees.

4. Customer Focused Banking: With credit unions, member goals aren’t at odds with “management.” Therefore, the credit union has more incentive to provide low rates, fees, and great customer service.

Q. Lewis, what are the basics of game theory? Do you need to be an economist or statistician to understand it?

A. What are the basic elements essential to playing any type of game, as well as applying game theory and gamer psychology in the real world?

 

 

  1. To begin with, any game is essentially system “an organized framework or method as well as a set of principles or procedures according to which something is done”.
  • That being the case let’s start out by defining a few terms commonly used in the study of game theory and gamer psychology.
  • Game: Any set of circumstances that has a result dependent on the actions of two of more decision-makers (players).
  • Players: A strategic decision-maker within the context of the game.
  • Strategy: A complete plan of action a player will take given the set of circumstances that might arise within the game.
  • Payoff: Also known by some as an “end-game”, this is the payout a player receives from arriving at a particular outcome. The payout can be in any quantifiable form, in HAGT – Harrison’s Applied Game Theory  most individuals seek their payout’s in cash other resources including time, space, influence, etc.
  • Referee: An official who watches a game or match closely to ensure that the rules are adhered to and (in some sports) to arbitrate on matters arising from the play. In the game of life, a referee might be an authority figure, a leader, a police officer, or a judge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No matter what game you’re playing; sports, board games, video games, or the game of life; if you do not understand these basics you are bound to lose.

One way to measure player skills is through the Bartle taxonomy of player types. This is a classification of video game players (gamers) based on a 1996 paper by Richard Bartle.

 

 

 

 

The taxonomy is based on a character theory. This character theory consists of four characters: Achievers, Explorers, Socializers, and Killers. These are imagined according to a quadrant model where the X-axis represents a preference for interacting with other players vs. exploring the world and the Y-axis represents a preference for interaction vs. unilateral action.

At first, the classification described players of multiplayer online games (including MUDs and MMORPGs). This definition has changed and today it also refers to players of single-player video games.

There was a test known as the Bartle Test of Gamer Psychology based on Bartle’s taxonomy. This test was created in 1999–2000 by Erwin Andreasen and Brandon Downey, containing a series of questions and an accompanying scoring formula. Although the test has been criticized by some due to the dichotomous nature of its question-asking method, as of October 2011, it had been taken over 800,000 times. The Bartle Test of Gamer Psychology hosted by GamerDNA is no longer available, though alternative online implementations of the test exist, and are popular with some players.

The result of the Bartle Test is the “Bartle Quotient”, which is calculated based on the answers to a series of 30 random questions in the test and totals 200% across all categories, with no single category exceeding 100%.

 

 

From the HAGT Gamer Glossary

Algorhythm: A process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer. In game theory an algorhythm serves as a highly effective, sequential approach to problem solving. In an algorhythm there is usually a list of well-defined instructions for completing a specific task or solving a specific problem. The process will usually begin with an initial statement (state) or variable, and proceed through a well: defined series of successive states (steps), eventually ending with a solution to the problem (terminating in an end: state). Algorhythms are often used for calculation and data processing. All video games are created using software that applies algorhythms to the design process.

Note: All postings on this website are based on a unique concept within game theory and gamer psychology which we refer to as Harrison’s Applied Game Theory or HAGT.

HAGT (pronounced “hacked”) is an umbrella term for hundreds of game and gamer-based approaches to problem-solving, and self-awareness. HAGT is strongly influenced by John von Neumann’s original ideas concerning gamer-thinking as well as economic game theory.

 

 

 

HAGT expands von Neumann’s seminal work by combining logic, rational thought, deep introspection, and intuition.  These processes create practical, efficient, precise, and productive strategies for solving problems. The goal of HAGT (pronounced “hacked”), is to enable anyone to maximize love, kindness, compassion, empathy, joy, freedom, clarity of thought, emotional balance, personal contentment, inner wisdom, and happiness,  in creating a meaningful life and forming collaborative communities.

One of the key foundations for the philosophy that underpins HAGT is that human beings are seldom rational agents. Rather they frame their emotionally driven, irrational, and often dysfunctional patterns of thought and action in rational terms so that they may be accepted into a group they have been born into or have chosen to associate with. The skilled practitioner of HAGT has the ability to predict when another player (agent) whether, an adversary, friend, or collaborator is likely to behave irrationally. This ability is critical for anyone seeking to survive and prosper in the game of life.

Q. Lewis, what are the basics of game theory? Do you need to be an economist or statistician to understand it?

A. I am not an economist, a statistician, or a mathematician. Like most people, I’m just attempting to live the best life I can. It is gamer psychology, influenced by work of John von Neumann and those that followed him that has created a magnificent integrated web of life; nature, human interactions, and mathematical logic, and has enabled me to be more effective, efficient, precise, productive, and self-aware in ways I never could have imagined.

 

Through game theory, and gamer thinking anyone with the intelligence of an average12-year-old can live a life of love, kindness, compassion, empathy, wisdom, collaboration, and financial freedom.

To make the process of understanding this new way of thinking easier we need to explore the many ideas core to game-based thinking in short “bite-sized” pieces.

With patience, clarity of thought, and a desire for personal growth anyone can understand these ideas, and ways to simply apply them to daily living in the digital age.

 

 

Through applied game theory we can learn how an individual’s concerns may truly extend beyond their specific personal interests and serve others of common interest as well.

Most of what we can learn from game theory can be absorbed intuitively by observing skilled players engaged in games, puzzles, and game-based thinking.

Classical game theory assumes that the people making decisions will always understand the consequences of their choices, are selfish (will choose whatever option gets them the most benefit), and rational (will always choose the best option available once all things are considered).

 

Originally, game theory addressed win/lose games (zero-sum games), in which one person’s gains result in losses for the other participants. Today, game theory applies to a wide range of behavioral relations and is now an umbrella term for the science of logical decision making in humans, animals, and computers. These life strategies can be applied to human interactions related to business, politics, spirituality, competition, sports, relationships, and even interactions with nonhuman players including even plants.

 

From the Game Theory Glossary

Cobra effect: Occurs when an attempted solution to a problem makes the problem worse, as a type of unintended consequences. The term is used to illustrate the causes of incorrect stimulation in economy, politics, and many other zero-sum; win-lose, and non-zero-sum; win-win interactions.
