Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 17, 2013 11:21 AM

When people don’t feel connected to their social network, they often try to buy satisfaction or fulfillment, the research suggests. Prior studies have found that excluding people drives them to buy products that symbolize their connection to others, such as merchandise with sports team logos or brand name products that imply a certain status, and popularity, in society.

"The ability to see the world through the eyes of others is an economic imperative. If empathy were given the attention it deserves, companies would find new ways to please their customers. Innovators would dream up systems that save time and money. Conflicts would be resolved more easily."

People Have More Sympathy for Dogs Than Humans

People Have More Sympathy for Dogs Than Humans | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

The latest study involved 240 men and women, most of whom were white and between the ages of 18 and 25, at a large northeastern university. The participants randomly received one of four fictional news articles about the beating of a one-year-old child, an adult in his thirties, a puppy, or a 6-year-old dog. Researchers said the stories were identical except for the victim's identity.  Participants were asked to rate their feeling of empathy towards the victim after reading the story.

"People feel more sympathy for battered dogs than they do for some humans, new research suggests.

Researchers found that people have more empathy for battered puppies and full-grown dogs than they do for human adults.  Researchers said the findings do not apply to children." 


Is this  the last selfish stage of  people?   Denying the fact that we are all interconnected ?

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 16, 2013 9:36 AM

"A person who learns to be both discerning and non-judgmental will experience tremendous freedom in expressing his true, authentic, opinions about others-since he will not feel weighed down by the worry that he is being judgmental. Further, such a person will exhibit the twin qualities of being motivated to look for everyone's true-but perhaps hidden-talents, and of compassion towards those who haven't had the luck to make them successful. And finally, people will find it easier to take negative feedback from such a person since they will recognize that the feedback is not meant to be malicious."

Innovation Starts with Empathy By Dev Patnaik, F

Innovation Starts with Empathy By Dev Patnaik, F | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
The importance of developing deep connections with the people you serve. 

A few years ago, my publisher asked me to write a book about innovation. They’d read some of the articles I’ve written on the subject over the years, and they wanted more. And although I was flattered, I had to tell them no. The world didn’t need another book on innovation — there are too many as it is. I instead made them a counter-offer: Maybe what the world needed was a book about empathy.

At Jump Associates, my colleagues and I have had the chance to collaborate with some of the world’s most amazing companies. And if there’s one thing that we’ve learned in all that time, it’s that companies prosper when they’re able to create widespread empathy for the world around them. That’s why I ended up writing Wired to Care, which shows how great companies around the world, from Nike to IBM, benefit from building a culture of widespread empathy for the people they serve.
