△ 260|Three Elements of Time

The magic of a time unit is that it can be long or short depending on human perception. During the last five hundred days of writing, I liked to talk about the concept of “time” because I always felt that a person’s lifetime was not enough, so I wanted to break things down into every minute. As a result, in the few years of time management that was harsh on myself, although the efficiency has improved a lot, the happiness obtained at the same time has also decreased significantly.

Time is more like a spell, good use and bad use, the rewards from a unit of time seem to be different, but people get the same things in this absolutely fair rule. For every day they experienced, their lifespan decreased by 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, and 86,400 seconds. And in this one-way game, every second they lose means it’s completely lost.

There was a very boring “stalk” before, but now that I think about it, it is actually full of philosophy in a certain sense: if a person is angry for one minute, he has 60 seconds of being angry.

Hey, this is no nonsense! But have you ever thought that from 1 minute to 60 seconds, although they are the same concept, at least you still have a choice, whether you are angry for 30 seconds or angry for 60 seconds. This topic is a bit obscure and difficult to understand, so let me give an example that everyone can understand.

I have participated in the judicial examination. Each of the first and second volumes has 100 multiple-choice questions, with a total of 200 questions. Each test takes 3 hours, 180 minutes, and 10,800 seconds. Therefore, many candidates like to calculate an “average”. If you reserve 30 minutes of examination time, in the remaining 2.5 hours, each multiple-choice question needs to be completed within 90 seconds, 1.5 minutes, and 0.025 hours, otherwise the time will be “” not enough”.

But the problem is that there are differences in the difficulty of the questions, and each examinee has some “experience” in different subjects. For example, I am very fast when I do multiple-choice questions in criminal law, but I need to think for a while when I am in civil law subjects. Therefore, it becomes very difficult to control each question within a “safe range” when actually doing the questions.

In this process, the collapse of the mentality is often in an instant. Therefore, in the 90-second question rule, people have added a “remedial” measure, which is to mark this question, temporarily put aside attention to it, and continue to be within the specified “safety range”. Complete the next question. As a result, at this time, two very miserable possibilities are prone to occur. One is that a question is left blank, and a wrong place is filled in the machine-readable card; or this question has no time to fill it in the end—— In the one I took the test, I saw a “collapsed” candidate. He should have filled in the wrong multiple-choice question because he left it blank. In the last 10 minutes, he realized the problem and began to adjust the machine-readable card. , until he broke down and erased the machine readable card with an eraser, and he finally gave up in a collapse-at least he never showed up again in the next three exams.

Another kind of collapse is slow penetration. When a person empties a question, it is difficult for him to “ignore it”. Even if he is doing the multiple-choice questions that follow, he always thinks about that question. So this “bug” will seriously affect the “safety range” that follows, and he will even struggle to go back and try to find the answer to the empty question. However, judicial questions are not math exams after all, and the answer cannot be found through a re-calculation – in the case of completely forgetting the knowledge points, it is better to trust your “intuition”.

So, please allow me to add an additional rule to the 90-second rule for each question, but another rule that can’t be found at all – “luck”. I was not a lucky student since I was a child, at least my first instinct would be to change it to a wrong answer at the last moment of the test because of my “confidence” and “I think option B is more pleasing to the eye”.

In such “luck”, it will be influenced by human subjectivity. For example, they will question and deny the options they make according to some “common sense”: will the teacher who created the question really set the answer to C for 5 consecutive questions? Therefore, in the 90-second rule for each question, in addition to “luck”, another rule must be added: “objectivity”. Obviously, these so-called objective analyses are actually based on subjective logical thinking. The more you don’t know the answer, the more you will guess how the questioners will set the answer.

Basically, when half of the questions are completed, this set of rules will be completely invalid, because the procrastination will be more and more time, unless you are a “good student” and know which concept, which concept, Guilty and jurisprudence, otherwise you’ll have to fully trust your intuition—because your “safe zone” rules will force you to choose the “most pleasing” answer, convince yourself that the choice is right, and ignore that concern Proceed to the next question. In short, this kind of painful and tangled emotions will accompany the last moment of the examination, which is why the judicial examination is one of the few examinations in the national examination that “requires the ability and mentality of the examiner at the same time”.

It’s a pity, whether it’s using knowledge reserves, luck, or constantly following my own psychological hints that the most pleasing answer that I choose seems to be similar to that I have seen in a certain real test practice, the same judicial examination is for different people. , are 3 hours, 180 minutes, 10800 seconds, no matter how many seconds people put each question in, the rules of time are the same. It doesn’t differ quantitatively or qualitatively because of how beautifully people plan it, and how precise the “safety margin” that each question follows.

It seems that those simple, easy-to-see questions can be completed within 10 seconds, as if 80 seconds are reserved for the next question, but when encountering those stuck questions, these 80 seconds have to be converted back. And those who get stuck on exactly how many seconds each question should take will have a breakdown because of their time confusion – this goes back to the “truth” mentioned at the beginning of the article, but human emotions give time The difference between “long and short”.

Take the time unit of three years as an example. I don’t want to review my three-year high school career again, because I am not a study material at all. In addition, I have bad luck and poor objective analysis, so time treats me in painful emotions. It is a torment; three years of married life, at least no need for all kinds of exams, but I prefer to understand some strange content every day, as a fun to share with each other, so for me It went too fast, some people felt like a story that happened yesterday, while others felt like it had just entered a slow winter.

So, if you insist on asking me what time is, I can only curl my lips and shrug my shoulders and find two completely opposite “examples” to prove what the concept of time is. They are contradictory but can only coexist with each other. If How can a person realize how to spend the three years he wants if he has not experienced those painful three years.

Of course, on the basis of this theory, today I offer you another understanding of the concept of time – time consists of three elements: luck, objectivity and emotion.

“Luck” makes time uncertain. Some people can use their luck to take less of the long road that others have taken for decades, but some people have to carve and polish their lives because of their luck;

“Objectivity” gives time an opportunity that people mistakenly believe can change. People who are addicted to various time management laws try to use the “objectivity” of time to split their time and make them look more efficient. It is not that it is useless, but people mistakenly think that it must be more useless than those who are useless. The time of time managers is more useful;

Today’s article was actually written last night, and after it was scheduled to be published, I didn’t get a sense of “easy” because objectivity told me that I still had to finish the daily writing role of a new article today. Automatic release tomorrow. They just move the schedule forward by one day, and it doesn’t mean that I can avoid writing plans for a certain day.

In the end, time is controlled by a completely elusive thing – “emotions”. Happiness makes time go faster, despair makes time slow, reluctance to let go of time makes time pass by, and eagerness for quick success makes time turn into a drop of water.
