Actually Marcus, I prefer your remarks to Nagpal's. You hit on the essential thing, I think. Or at least, it's what has made all the difference for me as well.
Nerd that I am, my first reaction to Nagpal was that "stop taking advice" is self-defeating--and that intentional self-deception (7 year post-doc) was unworthy of a philosopher.(But first reactions are thoughtless reactions.)

Thanks for the kind comment - glad to hear you've had a similar experience too. :)
