"All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work."   (Thomas Watson, IBM)

Since Your Brain Constantly Compares You With Everyone Else, Try This 

Since Your Brain Constantly Compares You With Everyone Else, Try This  | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

Your brain is a comparison engine. In every new situation, it automatically rifles through your memory of every other situation you’ve encountered in the past. It swiftly finds one or a few that are similar to the current scenario, then uses that information to figure out what to do next. Most of the time, you do this without you ever realizing it.

 

Sometimes this cognitive reflex works to your advantage, and sometimes it doesn’t. But since it’s always happening anyway, you might as well make it work for you more often than against you–at least as best you can. Here’s how.

Social comparisons sometimes make us feel better and sometimes don’t. Here’s how to use that tendency to actually get better.

David Stapleton's curator insight, October 15, 9:05 PM
After everything we have learned we can clearly see everything
CCM Consultancy's curator insight, October 16, 1:48 AM

When you compare yourself to someone better than you on a dimension, that’s called an “upward social comparison”; when you compare yourself to someone you consider worse off on a given dimension, it’s “a downward social comparison.” So while these comparisons can be useful (in both directions) for figuring out where you stand, they can make you miserable, too. If you’re always making upward social comparisons and find yourself lacking something, you may start feeling bad about how you measure up.

28 Critical Thinking Question Stems For Any Content Area - | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
Critical thinking isn’t a skill, nor is it content knowledge or even evidence of understanding. While it involves and requires these ideas, critical thinking is also very much a state of mind — a willingness and tendency to sit with an idea and ‘struggle wonderfully’ with it.

In critical thinking, there is no conclusion; it is constant interaction with changing circumstances and new knowledge that allows for broader vision which allows for new evidence which starts the process over again. Critical thinking has at its core raw emotion and tone. Intent.

James Schreier's insight:

In some ways I wish the title hadn't included the word "Killer" but seeing that it does, it has to be noted. Conference rooms don't kill ideas, people kill ideas! I've been in many meetings where someone, often a key leader, killed more than just ideas -- but I've also been in conference rooms where ideas and collaboration flourished!

'I Hate Change' And 4 More Mindsets That Can Get You Fired

'I Hate Change' And 4 More Mindsets That Can Get You Fired | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

Google is currently testing driverless cars in Arizona. The two of us had lunch one afternoon in Scottsdale and watched the noticeable cars (with their rooftop honing devices) pass by our restaurant. As the car passed we heard a gentleman at a nearby table say, “Not a chance I’d get in that car.”

As unnerving as driverless cars may seem, change can be hard for many people to accept. We often fear the worst — that music videos would be the end of radio, and tablets would eliminate traditional books. Just consider how many people find it concerning every time Apple changes its charging cord on the iPhone. Yes, it’s concerning. But, we adapt…because we have to.

Change, in all areas of life, can be daunting, and especially at work where our natural tendency is to find a groove that works for us. Still, the resistance to change can be dangerous — as the way we work, the when we work, and the things we work on are consistently in a state of flux.

The Learning Factor's curator insight, April 18, 7:28 PM

In a world with driverless cars, drone package delivery, and technology advancing like never before, it can feel like everything, especially our work, is changing. But, there are some things that actually never change—like the five mindsets that could inspire your boss to ask you to ‘take a hike.’

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 18, 11:06 PM
Somehow, the human brain is averse to change, and disruption tests it severely. It will take some time getting used to riding in driverless cars or any new technology that challenges accepted beliefs and norms. To say that you hate change is a sure way to get fired. You need to get over your hatred for change and accept that there might be other ways to do things.
