Quiet: Post #9--FINAL

Some Concluding Thoughts: “Love is essential; gregariousness is optional.” When it comes to relationships, think quality over quantity. When networking, go deep not wide…one great conversation vs. a ton of hellos. When teaching, remember both gregarious and quiet kids have LOTS to offer the class. Remember the New Groupthink, therefore allow employees and students to think first and then share. And finally, remember that an eloquent presentation doesn’t mean it contains deep ideas.

New Groupthink - Collaboration
In Human Accomplishment Charles Murray constructs who has achieved for the human race from from 800BC to 1950AD. 4,000 contributors, many polymaths (Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel and opened a whole new toolbox for painters, yet he was a better sculptor). The book is about the data, the statistical manipulation and alternate choices.
Collaboration is shown to not only diminish final contribution, but waste the efforts of the team members.
Collaboration is quite possibly a defense from no-talent managers.
