1 @nntaleb 2019-01-02 23:09:27 @timrogers2016 @jessesingal @sbkaufman I don't randomly call people "imbeciles" publicly. Only when they claim "someone doesn't know what he is talking about " when it turns out that they don't know what THEY are talking abt. Singal is done. He got pretty much everything wrong, from conscientiousness to correlation https://t.co/DsKZmpl3Ro https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1080601995684311040 -0.500
2 @nntaleb 2018-12-29 12:25:25 I am allergic to verbalistic Pinker-style talk abt something like "correlation", "variance" w/o knowing what it REALLY means. Hence EVERY statistical concept needs to be rederived ab ovo. With IQ, 1000s of psychologist so far seem to NOT understand their own statistics! https://t.co/f4J0Bt3C8j https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1078990369109495808 -0.500
3 @nntaleb 2018-12-28 19:24:51 @David_S_Wilson @primalpoly I showed mathematically in Tech book that immediate “gratification” is a direct function of uncertainty (abt future, credibility of presenter, valuation, contractual fuzziness).

5 @nntaleb 2018-12-22 20:33:29 Psychologists teaching you abt "intelligence" is like choirboys teaching you racketeering, turtles teaching you flying, or nuns teaching you how to rob a bank.

As I wrote in TBS, if all terrorists were Sunni Salafis, only ~ 0.0001 of Sunni Salafis are terrorists meaning you are wasting statistical time discriminating ag single individuals. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1075766164532252672 0.500

17 @nntaleb 2018-09-17 13:35:35 Mr @Kasparov63 fails logical thinking/meta at many levels. He derives his "expertise" & fame not from intellectual contribution or risk wizardry, but from moving w/ B&W pieces. So we are entitled to wonder abt transferability of such knowledge to risk. https://t.co/n21kKWCNx1 https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1041682078281228288 -0.500

23 @nntaleb 2018-09-04 15:45:19 Devitt is an impressive mind. But there is something abt an 80 year old philosopher dressed like a teenager. By the #LindyEffect there is some type of gravitas, dignitas, and decorum that comes with the offices of philosophers, magistrates, bishops, doctors, & scholars. https://t.co/rMmgSst9HJ https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1037003683261755397 -0.500

25 @nntaleb 2018-08-26 12:47:19 Many have the illusion that builders used Euclidean geometry. We are lucky they didn't: Euclidean geometry only entered architecture in modern times ...causing the ugly nonfractal structures we have today. #Antifragile: how academics lie abt role of theory: they WRITE history. https://t.co/ZedV2lneL8 https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1033697398105821185 -0.500
