Be Normal or Be Creative

Be Normal or Be Creative | Fill life with Passion | Scoop.it

In her Scientific American magazine article, creativity researcher Shelley Carson notes “People who are highly creative often have odd thoughts and behaviors—and vice versa.

“Both creativity and eccentricity may be the result of genetic variations that increase cognitive disinhibition — the brain’s failure to filter out extraneous information.”

Lately, a lot of conversations I've had with people have revolved around the lack of respect towards social media. 


Albert Qian's article is right on point in that sense. As he mentions, brands still make the same mistakes, despite being caught red-handed many times. 


"Social media will always be necessary as a channel to reach an audience, but the context of social is going to change as we know it in the coming years. Be ready."

10 Points About the Science of Spreading Good, by James Fowler

10 Points About the Science of Spreading Good, by James Fowler | Fill life with Passion | Scoop.it
"Good deeds are contagious. We naturally imitate the people around us, we adopt their ideas about appropriate behavior, and we feel what they feel. Acts of charity are no exception. In our 2010 generosity experiment, we showed that every extra dollar of giving in a game designed to measure altruism caused people who saw that giving to donate an extra twenty cents. Furthermore, the network acts like a matching grant: that same experiment showed that contagious generosity spreads up to three steps through the network (from person to person to person to person), and when we added up all the extra donations that resulted at every step, we found that an extra dollar in giving yielded three extra dollars by everyone else in the network." Internationally recognized political scientist James Fowler shares the science of spreading good.
