Compartmentalization

What's the purpose of having the "blog posts" section? shouldn't they just be tagged so they appear in the post list?

2habryka1yMy guess is that this is a result of the import from the old wiki, where that section made more sense. I would make sure all the linked posts are tagged and then remove that section (currently on phone, so can’t do it myself).
3Yoav Ravid1yAh, that makes sense, thanks. I'll do it once I am on my computer (also currently on phone)
2habryka1yThank you!
3Yoav Ravid1yDone :)

Compartmentalization is keeping information and processes within your mind segregated, especially in ways whichthat keep knowledge possessed by some of your reasoning processes being accessed by other processes.
 

From an alternative angle, one can think of compartmentalizing one's different activities or domains from each other. when one couple the skills or habits from one to another, e.g., the religious scientist who does not apply scientific thinking outside the lab. 

One might even have excellent epistemological performance in one domain and terrible performance in others.

More generally, the concept refers to not following a piece of knowledge to its logical conclusion, or not taking it seriously.

A common phenomenon in humans is excellent epistemological performance in one domain - and terrible performance in others. This phenomenon undermines 'appeals to authority' but also shows that someone holding an obviously false belief can still be worth learning from.
