Open the Floodgates with Emotional Stories

“We are wary of listening to stories that we think are being told to manipulate our emotions or push us to believe a certain way,” said Francesca Pollett, author of It Was Like a Fever: Storytelling in Protest and Politics in a phone call with me last year. “On the other hand,” she says, “ambivalent stories, stories with no clear moral agenda, invite the listener to imagine themselves in the story. True engagement happens when the listener can see multiple outcomes for a story and is able to come to their own conclusions.”

What struck me most in this high-quality article was the insight that once we have told our story, itn isn't ours anymore. Others will add their interpretations and associations to it. So, if you tell a story, it better be good and with a clear message and meaning, otherwise it will be sistirted unrecognizably.

John Michel's curator insight, May 21, 8:27 AM

As human beings evolved, our survival depended on being able to quickly identify and differentiate friend from foe, which meant making rapid judgments about the character and intentions of other people or tribes. Focusing on people rather than situations is faster and simpler, and focusing on a few attributes of people, rather than on their complicated entirety, is an additional temptation.

Touching post here by @jeff_haden.  As I read it, I felt like I did back in 911 when I simply had no doubt about the priorities in my life were.  I still do but this post is a wonderful reminder. 


If you knew you only had minutes left to live, which choices would you regret? Would you wish you had spent more time at work? Would you think about money you never earned, jobs you never landed, or companies you never started?


Would those be the kinds of decisions you would want back?


Of course not. You would think about the people you love, and how you wish you had chosen to spend more time with them. You would wish you had chosen to tell them how much they meant to you, over and over and over again.


Fortunately for us it's not too late.
