Finance talks not my forte, but Thanks to leofinance
Prior to my joining the leofinance community, I didn't see myself to be one who would come here to put up any such finance related content , Financial stats , advice and whatnot, I'm basically a chess junkie , but hey , look at me .. Shall I say this new me was born out of necessity ? Or I actually have gotten to like and find myself enjoying the leofinance community, whether or not I make a post or comment, not a day has passed since I joined the community that I've not opened leofinance.io.
So what turned me around ?
I'm like to pride myself as being a man of science , so upon psychological analysis of my detour, because once upon a time I could have sweared the knowledge of Cryptocurrency or dealing in cryptocurrency is perhaps futile to me, and I would have stayed wallowing in fiat.. I shall blame my successful detour on the concept of reinforcement, positive reinforcement.
Whilst @nonsowrites has brought in many folks into the hive Blockchain , some have stayed , many have found the way out , I pride myself in being one of his most successful recruits , not because I'm any different from the other recruits who found time for something more pressing than Crypto blogging, the principle of positive reinforcement I accord much for my consistency.
Many individuals are not intrinsically motivated, that is motivation that comes from internal factors eg, a sense of purpose from blogging, than external factors like tokens. So they basically came down here with a sense of having a gateway to the cryptoworld , but when the tokens aren't matching up with their presupposed expectations, the passion for engaging dwindles , it's basic psychology. And they aren't to blame at all.
I was indeed lucky to have my introductory post on leofinance get me relatively massive tokens, that single occurrence triggered me on to continue blogging, but it wasn't a continuous affair, that tokens will keep rolling in, but then I found it interesting because of the primacy effect of the positive reinforcement granted me, and then other such purposefulness was birth.
@nonsowrites is fast becoming a major proponent of the concept "social capital" learning this and much other concepts which I wouldn't get for free from the mainstream social networks, methinks I've gotten more than I bargained for when I joined the leofinance community and the hive Blockchain. The tokens are basic so to say, not much to hinge your life on, when you do realize how fickle money is.
Just to also encourage newbies like myself, focus more on learning from learning earning is derived.
Cheers to y'all .
