The Psychology of Trust in Work and Love

The Psychology of Trust in Work and Love | educational leadership | Scoop.it

The science of why tit-for-tat isn't the best strategy for cooperation and why you should hear out your hunches.

What does it really mean to “trust,” and perhaps more importantly, how can we live with the potential heartbreak that lurks in the gap between “often” and “always”? That’s precisely what psychologist David DeSteno, director of Northeastern University’s Social Emotions Lab, explores in The Truth About Trust: How It Determines Success in Life, Love, Learning, and More.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, May 2, 5:20 AM

This article was featured on Brain Pickings by Maria Popova. Here's an excerpt from the article:


Unlike many forms of communication, issues of trust are often characterized by a competition or battle…. It’s not always an adaptive strategy to be an open book to others, or even to ourselves. Consequently, trying to discern if someone can be trusted is fundamentally different from trying to assess characteristics like mathematical ability. … Deciding to be trustworthy depends on the momentary balance between competing mental forces pushing us in opposite directions, and being able to predict which of those forces is going to prevail in any one instance is a complicated business.


An excellent and enormously enriching read in its entirety, The Truth About Trust goes on to explore the intricacies of navigating trust with ourselves and others in contexts as wide-ranging as power and money, love and sex, and the dynamics of the social web.

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you"

The #1 Rule of Leadership - "It's not about you" | educational leadership | Scoop.it

Perform a search of “leadership” on Google and you will find dozens of listed leadership “rules” and “qualities” (most of which are very accurate).

 

But there is one primary axiom of leadership that trumps all others:


Via donhornsby

donhornsby's curator insight, August 27, 5:25 PM

(From the article) The most effective leaders follow Leadership Rule #1, and return to it during those leadership challenges that require the very best of their leadership abilities. They understand that you cannot change expectations, alter perceptions, and motivate others unless you maintain the ability to influence them in a positive manner. When followers sense that your leadership decisions are made with other priorities, they will not trust you. Without trust, you will lose the ability maintain the positive influence necessary to motivate and inspire others, and you will have limited the value of your leadership investment.

 

Whether you are a brand new leader, or someone with years of experience, the next time you find yourself faced with a leadership decision, pause and remind yourself of this:

 

“It’s not about you.”

donhornsby's curator insight, May 18, 8:43 AM

Interesting article. However, I think that the way the article ends provides sage advice: "But there's still one major problem with getting mad. When you're angry, it's easy to do and say things you later regret. That's why the key to harnessing anger is to find a way to stay smart and in control while you're angry."

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, May 18, 10:52 AM

Leading is connecting to people relationship and feelings. Avoiding a part of these feelings is just wrong. One sentence that always make me laugh is the famous: "This is not personal, only business" what a stupid one's!


Getting angry is , in some cases, is fully justified and sometimes just. Avoiding it will just hurt you and can also trigger wrong behavior of the one who deserved your anger.


Once this said, the main issue with anger is how to keep control of it and not let it control you!

Joe Boutte's curator insight, May 19, 8:22 AM

As humans, we all get angry, but as leaders, we need to move from anger to action and use that energy to create the outcomes we seek.  The difference between being an angry person and a leader that achieves results is that we don't let anger linger too long because it can be a detriment to a team or organization's culture and productivity.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 15, 9:18 PM

Integrity is situational and there is no way that we can teach morality in the strictest sense. We can help students understand what it means to be a good person and to take questioning stances. By turning classrooms into political and cultural sites, students can learn valuable lessons as they apply ethical thinking in practical situations. In that fashion, we might end up with leadership that says we have to trust them when all the evidences suggests not trusting.

Study: Two systems for empathy: a double dissociation between emotional and cognitive empathy in inferior frontal gyrus versus ventromedial prefrontal lesions.

Study: Two systems for empathy: a double dissociation between emotional and cognitive empathy in inferior frontal gyrus versus ventromedial prefrontal lesions. | educational leadership | Scoop.it

Recent evidence suggests that there are two possible systems for empathy: a basic emotional contagion system and a more advanced cognitive perspective-taking system.

 

However, it is not clear whether these two systems are part of a single interacting empathy system or whether they are independent. Additionally, the neuroanatomical bases of these systems are largely unknown. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that emotional empathic abilities (involving the mirror neuron system) are distinct from those related to cognitive empathy and that the two depend on separate anatomical substrates.

 

Subjects with lesions in the ventromedial prefrontal (VM) or inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) cortices and two control groups were assessed with measures of empathy that incorporate both cognitive and affective dimensions. The findings reveal a remarkable behavioural and anatomic double dissociation between deficits in cognitive empathy (VM) and emotional empathy (IFG).

 

Furthermore, precise anatomical mapping of lesions revealed Brodmann area 44 to be critical for emotional empathy while areas 11 and 10 were found necessary for cognitive empathy. These findings are consistent with these cortices being different in terms of synaptic hierarchy and phylogenetic age.  

 

The pattern of empathy deficits among patients with VM and IFG lesions represents a first direct evidence of a double dissociation between emotional and cognitive empathy using the lesion method.

They are implementing a holacracy for a clear Purpose: they attempt to prevent bureaucracy from infiltrating Zappos, while maintaining a start-up culture within what is now, a quite large organization.

The ideas we have developed and used for at least 4 decades are gradually becoming incorporated into how we think of organizations on a more regular basis

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 7, 6:18 AM

The article challenges the assumption that holocracy eliminates hierarchies. From the piece: 

 

"Holacracy claims to ....change  the concept of organizational structure from one that is autocratic and top-down to one that is decentralized, organic, and bottom-up. Ultimately, the vision of Holacracy is to allow the emergent, creative properties of the individuals playing roles within an organization to self-organize and flourish, much like human cells are organized into organs, which in turn are organized into bodies and minds, which in turn go forth into the world to express their purpose as humans."
