HIERARCHIES CAN BE A DESTRUCTIVE FORCE TO THE HUMAN PSYCHE


I was struck by the story of the Baboon troupe that became more gentle and nicer after the alpha males were removed (killed by accidentally eating tainted meat.) It seems that most of the excess stress was caused in the society by the unfocused alpha males who would bully the others (brawn over brain.)

CAROL DWECK ~ The POWER of YET (TEDtalk!)



The POWER of NOT YET
And, The TYRANNY of NOW


The TYRANNY of NOW
---She is speaking of the mindset where one thinks that effort and actually learning something is looked upon as a bad thing. After all, ‘’being smart’’, everything should be effortless and easy and just ‘’come to you.’’ Somehow you should already know it.

The POWER of NOT YET
---The power of NOT YET seems much less pressure making letting you know that even if you’re not quite there AS OF YET it is in your future. You are heading in the right direction. There is a learning curve AND you are on it.
