Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou do of course. It depends on you. It will be like acquiring more physical strength. Whether you are picking up a tea cup or the front end of a VW it is always there. You learn how much you need and when. Same thing with self confidence. There will always be more than enough and you turn it on and off as you need it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11128 20130527 03:47:43
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI can fake something like confidence quite easily, but it is impossible to fake strength. #11129 20130527 03:53:00
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhy do you have to fake it? You are not competing against The Incredible Hulk here. We are talking about a human being. Someone physically smaller and weaker and certainly from the group you have outlined intellectually weaker too. Someone who is asking for you to take charge. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11130 20130527 06:47:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI'm starting to understand that a bit more, but I still find the execution difficult. When presented with the situation I find myself trying to be dominant but ending up reverting to my natural instincts  to not be dominant. #11131 20130527 08:52:29
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaDo not worry, soon you will fall into one of the classes we discussed and the problem will all be solved on its own. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11132 20130527 08:59:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI hope so. Seems I keep making error after error in this game. #11133 20130527 09:04:37
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYep, like a shark you just need to get close. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11134 20130527 09:06:47#11135 20130527 09:12:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAmbushed? You are the one that is doing the ambushing.
I am concerned about this statement. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11136 20130527 10:30:58#11137 20130527 10:45:27
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBecause a poor self image can sap the confidence out of a human being. Literally sap the strength out of him/her. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11138 20130604 20:30:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaLike I've said before my confidence fluctuates a lot. I don't know if it's mostly hormonal or not, but I am very confidence driven. One day I wake up and I feel worthless, the next I wake up and feel like I'm ready to take on the world. #11139 20130604 20:34:58
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Until you change you mode of thinking this will be a common occurrence. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11140 20130604 20:39:10
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI've heard that it's very common among teenagers, especially in Britain. From the age of 14, 10% of teens exhibit symptoms of severe depression, apparently. Much higher than the figure it used to be. I know that these feelings will likely go away in a few months. #11141 20130604 20:40:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI consider it very foolhardy to allow your sense of self worth to vacillate based on day to day results. It will be a dizzying rollercoaster ride. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11142 20130605 02:16:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSigh. Just barely got a 1 in the STEP paper (possibly even a 2 but that's if you're marking very harshly). I want an S in at least one of them. I met some of my friends at the library and for some reason they said my arms look bigger and asked if I've going to the gym and that I used to be skinny. I am baffled, I don't see any difference... maybe it was just because I wore a shortsleeve Tshirt or something. #11143 20130605 02:53:01
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Let's say that it is true, Could be caused by you filling out which happens to people at around your age. Important point is that people noticed. The girls will notice. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11144 20130605 04:47:37
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI hope so. I have been putting on a bit of weight recently (a couple of kilos)... #11145 20130605 04:52:00
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThinking isn't the right reaction. Are you interested in her or not? If no, end of story! If yes, now comes the thinking. Can you handle it? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11146 20130605 05:05:28
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't know, I didn't like it when she became attached to her BF and basically forgot about me. #11147 20130605 05:16:55
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is not the same thing. The question again is are you interested in her? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11148 20130605 05:22:22
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI am not sure. I spent so long trying to forget about her (over 50 days) that it seems silly to undo all of that work. #11149 20130605 05:24:46
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat too, is irrelevant. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11150 20130605 05:30:33
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut whether I do or don't is irrelevant too, surely? I can't win her from her BF, that was proven a few months ago.
