Question #31: A bowl of Halloween candy is hard to resist; and after eating just one piece, it may feel impossible to stop—until you get a stomachache. You might assume that sugar is the sole reason that Halloween candy is so hard to resist. But Halloween candy’s hold on you goes beyond sugar alone. It’s the combination of sugar, fat and salt that really revs up the hedonic feelings. Studies have shown that sweet or fatty foods can activate pathways in the brain associated with pleasure and reward, sometimes causing people to overeat out of pleasure, not hunger. And while salt, sugar and fat are all tasty on their own, food scientists have long known they become irresistible when they come together. That’s why when you walk into the office and you see that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, your mouth literally starts watering. You have this memory of pleasure, so that cycle continues.

The summary is:
The projected noun is:
Question #32: Any palatable food can spur this effect, but something like Halloween candy, which is often linked to nostalgia and positive memories, is likely to trigger an even more intense reaction. It can be difficult to outsmart these bodily mechanisms, though some research suggests that consistently choosing healthful foods can eventually rewire your brain to prefer them. But mindful eating is the best way to avoid an accidental candy binge. Next time you’re faced with a mountain of bite-sized chocolate bars, slow down and take a minute to ask yourself, “Do I actually want and need this?”

Question #33: In 2016, Angela Duckworth, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania wrote the book Grit: The Power and Passion of Perseverance. Duckworth researched the difference between the best and worst, and she was set to prove her belief that anyone could learn if they worked hard and long enough. She discovered that success depended much more than the ability to work quickly and easily. The most successful people didn’t necessarily come from high-income families; they didn’t necessarily have the highest intelligence, nor were they the most talented. The most successful people who advanced the farthest, both in school and in professional life, were those who had grit. Grit provided a solid work ethic and motivation for the long-run. It involved having a growth mindset of knowing that the ability to learn can change with effort. Those who had grit understood that failure was not a permanent condition; lessons learned from failure created knowledge.

The summary is:
The projected noun is:
Question #34: Grit is defined as “working on something you care about so much that you are willing to stay loyal to it.” A critical element is deliberate practice, which involves: targeting performance beyond the current performance, seeking immediate, accurate, and specific feedback from others, and reflecting on results. Finding out what went wrong and correcting the weaknesses is within the next practice round. Reflection and refinement of actions become the most powerful growth tool when continuing to engage in deliberate practice for attaining the specific goal.
