Hello. I'm Vova. It is a pleasure to see you here. What habit do you think is bad and what habit do you think is good?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/03 20:10, 2018/11/03 21:02

Hello. I'm Alexey. Nice to meet you too. In my opinion smoking is a bad habit, but for example, running is a good habit.
How do you think is it a difficult to change bad habits ?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/03 22:34, 2018/11/03 22:40

What do you think is it difficult to change bad habits?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/03 23:54

What do you think it is difficult to change bad habits

Yuri ScherbakovYuri Scherbakov, 2018/11/04 10:43

What - лишнее, так как изначально вопрос был общим, а не специальным: Is it difficult to change bad habits?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/03 20:38

I agree that smoking is a bad habit because it does harm both to the smoker and to everybody; and jogging is a good habit because it does good to the jogger and it doesn't do any harm to anybody.
I think it is a hard job to change your bad habits and make them good.
Do you consider laziness and idleness a bad habit?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/03 22:50

Yes, I do. In my opinion laziness is extremely harmful for people. Lazy people can't develop themselves.
I have read a book which describe a habit like a behavioral loop. Do you agree with this statement or not?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/03 23:29, 2018/11/03 23:30

I'd rather agree to such description of a habit. I share the idea that a habit is a repeated attempt to fulfil an important action but at a certain moment the person cannot finish the attempt and starts it again and again. By the way, what is the book's title and who is the author? Do you have any habits you would like to change?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/04 00:03, 2018/11/04 01:10

This book is called : “The power of habit” by Charles Duhigg. I wish change my approach to time management, because I always can't find time for important tasks and duties. If you wanted to change a habits which нужна проформа (слово, замещающее вышеупомянутое слово)would you change?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/04 13:11

I can't find time for important tasks and duties.
If you wanted to change habits what habits would you change.
Насчёт проформы не совсем понял.

Yuri ScherbakovYuri Scherbakov, 2018/11/04 13:26, 2018/11/04 13:26

Проформа (pro-form) - это, например, she вместо Anna или it вместо room: Anna went into the room. She (= Anna) looked small in it (= the room).

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/05 19:27, 2018/11/05 19:29

If you wanted to change habits what ones would you change.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/04 13:51

Thank you for the information about the book. Is it translated into Russian? If I had such power, I would change smoking into tea-drinking; drug-addiction into creative work addiction; alcohol abuse into collecting unique items; emotion abuse, such as aggression, into love and devotion. How do you think it is possible to change a bad habit into a good one?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/06 10:49, 2018/11/06 20:39

Unfortanatly, the book doesn't translated into Russian. In my opinion, everyone can turn нужен артикль bad habit into нужен артикль good one. It depends on will ? power and desire. It probably will be difficult for people who is can't notice a cue that causes a habit. Do you have a positive experience in this field?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/07 14:13

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/06 19:31

So, you have read the book in the original, haven't you?
I agree that it is hard to see the cause of a habit, because the habit itself masks its cause.
I do. In my youth I used to smoke but when my first child was born, I stopped smoking because I didn't want to do harm to the child. Since then I do not smoke. And what about you?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/07 15:11, 2018/11/09 18:20

Yes, I have. I have created a new one. I have noticed that when I wear a sportswear I want to do spots. I am used to use it as an advantage for myself. What do you think how many time подлежащее?takes to change a habit?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/11 13:15, 2018/11/18 23:35

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/09 17:56

Do you think that if I buy a dictionary of English, will I want to learn English?
I think that it takes a long time to change a habit, however, much depends on a person.
If you see a bad habit of person, would you advise them to change it?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/11 13:31, 2018/11/11 21:56

I don't think that only a dictionary would help you, but I think if you want to read something on English it will motivate you to learn English. When I will have met someone who is has a bad habit in my opinion, I won't say anything to him because I don't know what is - инверсия не нужна bad habit for him certainly - ?. How do you think age is important - нельзя отрывать от своего определения (how) for changing habits

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/11 22:14, 2018/11/11 22:18

I don't think that only a dictionary would help you, but I think if you want to read something in English it will motivate you to learn English. When I will meet someone who has a bad habit in my opinion, I won't say anything to him ….. How important do you think age глагол ? for changing habits ?

because I don't know what is - инверсия не нужна bad habit for him. —- Не понял

Yuri ScherbakovYuri Scherbakov, 2018/11/11 22:17

т.е. глагол (is) должен находиться после подлежащего (… habit …)

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/12 01:00

because I don't know what bad habit is for him.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/11 21:23, 2018/11/11 21:23

I think that age isn't important, because age helps to change bad habits into good ones.
How important go you think surrounding is for one to change their habits?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/11 22:02

I think that surrounding is extremely important because it can be a source of cues which are important for changing habits. How do you think modern marketing uses knowledge about habits ?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/16 14:55

I'm sure that modern marketing makes an ample use of the knowledge about habits, because it makes turnover larger. What habits does modern marketing use to enlarge their turnover?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/16 22:56, 2018/11/16 23:14

I don't know for certainly but in my opinion, a modern marketing has done a lot of researches about habits and a human behavioral in order to make a more profit. Maybe have you - после maybe прямой порядок heard something about some researches ?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/16 23:23

I don't know for certain but in my opinion, a modern marketing has done a lot of researches — (провел много исследований) about habits and a human behavior in order to make zero more profit. Maybe you have heard something about any researches ?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/17 19:42

I don't know exactly what the research was but the idea was to put small items like batteres, erasers, chocolate bars, etc. at the cash-desk, because customers are likely to buy small items when they leave the shop. Have you?

Alexei_KudinovAlexei_Kudinov, 2018/11/18 23:29, 2018/11/18 23:37

I have read that marketers use a color of pack and also they try to simplify name of products. Have you ever been thinking about it ?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2018/11/20 16:59

I have not, but now, after your explanation, I will.
Thank you so much for the conversation.
