Memory Leak and the Teddy Bear Effect

  Asked By: Harry    Date: Jan 17    Category: MS Office    Views: 753

My memory leak was caused by my own poor garbage collection. I had a
long-forgotten piece of code that caused objects to be self-referential.

The Teddy Bear Effect is more powerful than what most people think. Has
worked for me many times.

The Teddy Bear Effect refers to the phenomenon where a passive
listener appears to impart wisdom to a speaker without doing anything
other than listening. People who ask someone a question expecting to
learn something from the answer often discover the answer for
themselves simply through the act of phrasing the question verbally.
The listener is compared to a Teddy Bear because evidently a stuffed
animal would have served the same purpose.

In medicine, the Teddy Bear Effect is sometimes compared to the
Placebo Effect.
