Why Powerful People Just Don't Get Empathy | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Etude intéressante, mais à nuancer.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:52 PM

Not surprising but still needs more exploration by authentic leaders, the key is that one can overpower the tendency to quelsh empathy in their roles. But it is not easy nor is it often truly understood.

Chris Brown's curator insight, October 2, 2013 6:05 PM

"Whether you're with a team at work [or] your family dinner, all of that hinges on how we adapt our behaviors to the behaviors of other people, and power takes a bite out of that ability, which is too bad."

 

A powerful statement.  How can we keep focused on connecting to others so we don't become less empathetic?

This article goes really well with that "Angry? Be a Fly on the Wall" article. If you can step outside the moment when you're upset, and pretend someone else is in your situation, it seems like you might have a better chance at keeping calm and coming up with a good solution/plan of action.

This Is Your Brain On The Internet

This Is Your Brain On The Internet | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Is the internet and social media influencing your brain? Documentary filmmaker Tiffany Shlain investigates our changing behaviors in the connected world.

How do media and technology impact our brain? According to a "a recent study, Dr. Small observed brain activity in two groups of subjects interacting with a search engine –one that was 'net-savvy' and one that was 'net naïve'. The results showed increased brain activity in the experienced netizens, reflecting Shlain’s hypothesis that our online behaviors stimulate more brain systems."
