Into something better. Into something more helpful. And into something that will make you feel better again.

Shane Parrish:  Bayes and Deadweight: Using Statistics to Eject the Deadweight From Your Life

“[K]nowledge is indeed highly subjective, but we can quantify it with a bet. The amount we wager shows how much we believe in something.”
Sharon Bertsch McGrayne

The quality of your life will, to a large extent, be decided by whom you elect to spend your time with. Supportive, caring, and funny are great attributes in friends and lovers. Unceasingly negative cynics who chip away at your self-esteem? We need to jettison those people as far and fast as we can.

The problem is, how do we identify these people who add nothing positive — or not enough positive — to our lives?

The quality of your life is directly affected by those you spend time with. Identify (and eliminate) toxic relationships in your life using Bayes’s probability theory.
