Weekly Wisdom Newsletter #38

Published Date: Sunday, July 14, 2019


Hi All!


Here are this week's chosen learning points:

  1. Bad Habits Trivia: Cracking your knuckles isn't actually bad for you. Chewing non-sweetened gum isn't bad for your teeth and can increase concentration. But biting your nails is bad because it increases the chance of skin infection under the nails. (Source)

  2. 70/30 Rule for Online Dating Profiles: 70% of your profile about you, 30% about what you're looking for. People usually don't do the latter. Consequently, they don't even know what they're looking for and so end up attracting the wrong people. (Source)

  3. Icebreaker Questions: When on a date, we shouldn't just ask icebreaker questions. We should also ask deeper questions but in a fun or interesting ways. Here are some examples (Source):

  • Who's the most fascinating person you've met?

  • What are you best known for among your friends?

  • Where would your family be most surprised to find you?

  • What's been the most significant plot twist in your life?

  • If you unexpectedly won $10,000, how would you spend it?

  • What's the most spontaneous thing you've done?


Here are this week's recommended actions:

  1. If you crack your knuckles, you can keep on cracking! If you like to chew gum, make sure you chew unsweetened ones. If you bite your nails...maybe chew unsweetened gum instead.

  2. If you use online dating, update your profile as per bullet 2.

  3. If you're going on a date (first time or not), try using some of the questions mentioned.
