Thanks for posting.The hindrances you mention seem relevant but also highly related. In particular, the"Poorly-tested implementation: A disconnection between engaging educational content and its practical application, underscoring the importance of field-tested guidance that works in varied real-life situations."I'm excited to see advice that has been tested via working closely with individuals. I'm reminded of the Scott Miller (who played a major role within evidence-based psychotherapy) claim on a podcast (paraphrasing): "We have an implementation problem".
Great! I'd expect most people on there are. I know for sure that Paul Rohde and James Norris (the founder) are aware. My rates depends on the people I work with but $200-$300 is the standard rate.
Thank you. This is a really excellent post. I'd like to add a few resources and providers:1. EA mental health navigator: https://www.mentalhealthnavigator.co.uk/.2. Overview of providers on EA mental health navigator (not everyone familiar with alignment in significant ways). https://www.mentalhealthnavigator.co.uk/providers3. Upgradable has some providers that are quite informed around alignment. https://www.upgradable.org/4. If permissible, I'd like to add myself as a provider (coach) though I don't take on any coachees at present.
So I need different names for the thingies that determine my predictions and the thingy that determines my experimental results. I call the former thingies ‘belief,’ and the latter thingy ‘reality.
Re-reading this after four years. It is still so elegantly beautiful. I don't understand why this wasn't part of sequences highlights. I would have put under "thinking better on purpose" or "the laws governing beliefs".
Interesting that you seem to see rationality (as opposed to traditional rationality) as a more effective and efficient version of seeking the truth (~epistemic rationality). In that sense, it does seem somewhat similar to doing what EA is trying to do for altruism.
