About me

NAME:
Olatomiwa Bifarin

SOBRIQUET:
Bif

CHARACTER:
Introverted.

Pessimistic Optimist (i.e. I try my best to escape the planning fallacy). 

OCCUPATION:
Scientist - A PhD candidate in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Georgia 

GOAL:
To become one of the world’s greatest thinkers (be, talk, and do ‘smart’ stuffs) Quite elastic, but probably the most precise I could get. After all, life is non-linear!

 

HOBBY:
I read a lot. Soccer (Goalie), and lumps of pounded yam rushing through my esophagus. (Not exactly a hobby but enough for me to classify it as one) FYI: Pounded yam, Iyan, is a popular delicacy among the Yorubas in southwestern Nigeria, (where I hail from)

FAVORITE QUOTES:
1) “The best way to know a person is to find out what they lie about”

2) “He who is most content with the least has the most”. The latter intimate a moral about our hedonic psychology – Happiness comes from within, not from Ferraris.

3) And a host of others

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE WORLD:
Presently revising.

FAVORITE EQUATION:

CaptureAttributed to the Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman for his work on prospect theory. Cutting off the jargon: we are driven more strongly to avoid losses than to achieve gains. Or, we are much more likely to be risk loving when we are about to lose what we have, but risk averse when we want to gain what we do not have.

Let’s get smart. Enjoy my Blog.
