To quantify yourself is anti-human:
Why the ‘quantified self’ movement as mostly bad:
Nerds have hijacked society. What does this mean? It means data rules everything around me (DREAM).
You think to yourself… “If I don’t quantify it, it is meaningless”.
This is bad. For example, there are certain things we can never and *SHOULD* never quantify. Your love for your friends, family, and kids. Or your sense of self-worth. If they could even invent a robust way of self-quantified metrics… would we even want it? SHOULD we want it?
I say no.
