Generation We: Why “me” doesn’t work for one and everyone and what “we” can do to change it

Thu, Aug 21, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Generation We: Why “me” doesn’t work for one and everyone and what “we” can do to change it

From Change This: Why does society tend to work in opposition to we if we is clearly a superior strategy? Why don’t human beings make stronger moves to get past me … ? Because psychologically and historically, me is a durable way to survive and succeed. Politics and business are competitive and capitalistic. Head-to-head, me appears to be the most viable strategy. But perception isn’t reality.

Social science and history expose me as a less steady way to survive, and a fragile way to thrive. And when me leaves work and goes home, stakes can get even higher. Emotions are closer to the surface. Love is deeper. Commitments are stronger. Me collapses entirely as a carryover strategy from boardrooms to living rooms.” · Go to Generation We: Why “me” doesn’t work for one and everyone and what “we” can do to change it →

The rise of the new groupthink

Wed, Jan 18, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , , , |Comments Off on The rise of the new groupthink

From NY Times: Solitude is out of fashion. Our companies, our schools and our culture are in thrall to an idea I call the New Groupthink, which holds that creativity and achievement come from an oddly gregarious place. Most of us now work in teams, in offices without walls, for managers who prize people skills above all. Lone geniuses are out. Collaboration is in. But there’s a problem with this view. Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption. And the most spectacularly creative people in many fields are often introverted, according to studies by the psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Gregory Feist. They’re extroverted enough to exchange and advance ideas, but see themselves as independent and individualistic. They’re not joiners by nature. · Go to The rise of the new groupthink →
