Why Behavior Change is a Bunch of #Bullshit and What You Can Do about It? | Behavior Change | Scoop.it

Designing healthy habits and routines can be an effective way to elicit change in the appropriate environment. However, similar to some of the legitimacy issues executive consulting faced when “life” coaches hit the scene, a wave of unqualified behavioral “designers” have been able to find an audience due to the increased ease at which garbage can be disseminated thanks to the power of the Internet.

Study asks if the carrot or the stick is better at changing a behavior

Study asks if the carrot or the stick is better at changing a behavior | Behavior Change | Scoop.it

What would make a smoker more likely to quit, a big reward for succeeding or a little penalty for failing? That is what researchers wanted to know when they assigned a large group of Consumer Value Stores (CVS) employees, their relatives and friends to different smoking cessation programs.


The answer offered a surprising insight into human behavior. Many more people agreed to sign up for the reward program, but once they were in it, only a small share actually quit smoking. A far smaller number agreed to risk the penalty, but those who did were twice as likely to quit.

Mike Rucker's insight:

If the social environment can be changed — for example, by posting simple warnings — people can be nudged into better behavior.

Mike Rucker's insight:

“The most valuable companies in the future won’t ask what problems can be  solved with computers alone. Instead, they’ll ask: how can computers help  humans solve hard problems?” - Peter Thiel, Zero to One
