Self-efficacy (自我效能)

It is a psychology theory proposed by Albert Bandura.
Most of the concerning research indicates that it is a strong factor for human behavior.
Hence, it has been used in education and health care to understand the behavior of students and patients.
It can be an interesting theory to be applied into the behavior or habit formation study.

Today, a paper [2] inspired me to use the IoT in the study of healthy diet habit.
Diet habit is an important subject for people health.
It is very interesting to construct an efficient personal management system for diet habit.
Such a system can make full use of the technologies like MR (Hasegawa), RFID (TR3), and smartphone.

How to read paper

1. Summary paper to facilitate the memoriation
If we use one sentence to summary a paper, it should be the conclusion.
If we use several sentences to summary a paper, we could add some crucial experiments to support the conclusion.
If we user a paragraph to summary a paper, we could add the reason about why to do that, and some details like experiment method, analysis method, which are interests for our specific research.
A good idea is to organize a journal club.
2. To learn what from reading papers
Learn to evaluate the importance of a paper. Reading the classic paper, and think about why they are important.
Learn to select the research subject or research problem. The subject should be innovative, important, and feasible.
