The 5 Psychological Traps We All Fall Into

The 5 Psychological Traps We All Fall Into | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
There are many times when our social perception fails us. We have a tendency to take mental shortcuts, using what psychologists call “heuristics,” when trying to make sense of our social world. As a result, we are prone to make errors in our mental processing.
Here are some examples of common biases in social perception and how they lead us to misjudge people and events

 

The best way to prevent becoming a victim to these common biases in social perception is to be aware of them, and to stop and analyze situations before you act.

Loved this article scooped by John Lasschuit! What intrigued me was the diagram plotting the relationships. As a Mind Map devotee, it was always going to lure me in! What was even more interesting was the notion of connective leadership. Great leaders are communicators; they work with and through people and they build relationships that, in turn, develop further relationships. If they don't, they are not great leaders!

Great article by Kristi Hedges on the role of leadership development. Love her insights.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, September 26, 10:23 AM

From the article:

#5: Clear and honest program rationale.

Finally, we also have to be courageous about the reason for the leadership program in the first place. If there’s a serious deficit that needs to be addressed, it’s better to be honest about it. If high performers are being put into a program to escalate promotion, then be clear about that. If the program is meant to top-grade skills for current positions, that’s fine too.

Everyone is well meaning, and this can get in the way. Too often, companies disguise, or don’t know, the real reason for the program. They worry about setting incorrect expectations. Just because a senior leader wants it doesn’t make a program meaningful. Greater transparency about why participants are selected and what the program will lead to is critical. Otherwise, there’s widespread skepticism and even frustration which foils learning every time.

Among other things, this is a good argument for optimism as opposed to what is called realism.  It seems to apply both to the personal and society - i.e. If a society feels things are going wrong, as the US currently seems to, then things will go wrong, while when a society believes in itself, as we used to, much more is accomplished and more goes right. -Lon.

Something experts in all fields tend to do when they’re practicing is to operate outside of their comfort zone and study themselves failing. The best figure skaters in the world spend more of their practice time practicing jumps that they don’t land than lesser figure skaters do. The same is true of musicians. When most musicians sit down to practice, they play the parts of pieces that they’re good at. Of course they do: it’s fun to succeed. But expert musicians tend to focus on the parts that are hard, the parts they haven’t yet mastered. The way to get better at a skill is to force yourself to practice just beyond your limits.

And just as importantly, leaders need to re-connect with their own sense of purpose to be able to continue to fuel their own inner fire."
