Nope, simply to separate it from discontinuous views, where sections of road are visible.



I now understand. I read the word "view" as being a verb; not as a noun as you intended. And, yes, I know, "continuous" is an adjective and should have given me the clue I needed as to the use of the word "view". And yes, I accept that this error is probably the most egregious example of cognitive bias ever recorded on this forum. I hang my head in shame. :o :o :lol:

But never mind; all's well that ends well. :D

Transmit - receive error. If you didn't understand, then I wasn't clear :)

I heard some time ago that people will require 4x the amount of positive comments to balance out negative (ie the 'sandwich' feedback method of + - + might be insufficient).

This might support that:

The danger of a ++++ - ++++ sandwich is that you give an Associate/Pupil an over inflated false sense of their abilities and may appear a bit 'gushy'. To be honest when training observers they tend to start out with brain dump feedback of -----------------+-- style.

Sadly some of us are genetically programmed in 'glass less than 50% full' mode all the time, even when the glass is actually 80+% full. :(

While it must depend of the character to the associate, the reason they're there is to find what they might do better, so they're more focussed on the negatives than the positives.

1/2 full or 1/2 empty?

An engineer might suggest that it's simply twice the size it needs to be :)
