How have you become more (or less) engaged with EA in the last year?

I'm not sure if EA has had a counterfactual impact on my donation rate, but my donations are definitely more effective because of EA.

How have you become more (or less) engaged with EA in the last year?

I think it's mostly the other way around. More altruism causing more engagement. When I first encountered EA, I was more or less immediately convinced that EA was the way to go if one wanted to do the most good, but I wasn't very interested in doing good at the time.

My path towards altruism is quite complicated and I don't entirely know what made the biggest difference, but I'm quite confident that EA didn't play a major role.

I've been aware of EA since 2016, but only engaged with it seriously in the past 6 months. I've attended EAGxVirtual, joined a local group and have started giving away 10% of my income.

I think my disposistion toward altruism has changed dramatically over the past 12 months, going from being mostly self-intersted to being very interested in improving the world.
