Facts Don't Change People's Minds. Here's What Does
The key is to trick the mind by giving it an excuse. Convince your own mind (or your friend) that your prior decision or prior belief was the right one given what you knew, but now that the underlying facts have changed, so should the mind.

When your beliefs are entwined with your identity, changing your mind means changing your identity. That’s a really hard sell. Put a healthy separation between you and the products of you.

If someone disagrees with you, it’s not because they’re wrong, and you’re right. It’s because they believe something that you don’t believe. The challenge is to figure out what that thing is and adjust your frequency.

Make a point to befriend people who disagree with you. Expose yourself to environments where your opinions can be challenged, as uncomfortable and awkward as that might be.

I significantly underestimated the power of Jeff Bezos | LinkedIn
But, then again, knowledge monopolists are not like every other business. Every writer, every media outlet, every book publisher depends on these companies for their financial survival. These companies, therefore, have a unique ability to inhibit criticism of themselves. They don’t need to lift a finger to ward off naysayers. By virtue of their size, the fact that they dominate much of the market for disseminating ideas, criticizing them often seems like a suicidal gesture.

Why We Built Wrong Software And How We Fix It – YKode
That was in 1968 and more and more apparent in the age of cloud and microservices. When we build software, it’ll ultimately end up mirroring the structure and pattern of that particular organisation…

A Serf on Google’s Farm – Talking Points Memo
But here’s where the rubber really meets the road. The publishers use DoubleClick. The big advertisers use DoubleClick. The big global advertising holding companies use Doubleclick. Everybody at every point in the industry is wired into DoubleClick. Here’s how they all play together. The adserving (Doubleclick) is like the road. (Adexchange) is the biggest car on the road. But only AdExchange gets full visibility into what’s available. (There’s lot of details here and argument about just what Google does and doesn’t know. But trust me on this. They keep the key information to themselves. This isn’t a suspicion. It’s the model.) So Google owns the road and gets first look at what’s on the road. Not only does Google own the road and makes the rules for the road, it has special privileges on the road. One of the ways it has special privileges is that it has all the data it gets from search, Google Analytics and Gmail. It also gets to make the first bid on every bit of inventory. Of course that’s critical. First dibs with more information than anyone else has access to. (Some exceptions to this. But that’s the big picture.) It’s good to be the king. It’s good to be a Google.

There’s more I’ll get to in a moment but the interplay between DoubleClick and Adexchange is so vastly important to the entirety of the web, digital publishing and the entire ad industry that it is almost impossible to overstate. Again. They own the road. They make the rules for the road. They get special privileges on the road with every new iteration of rules.

The Nurse Managers' Power Usage in Turkey
This study investigated how nurses in two state hospitals in Izmir in Turkey perceived the current power base of their hospital nurse managers and what these same nurses preferred their hospital nurse managers to have their power base to be. This is a descriptive design that used a sample of 150 nurse staffs. The perceived leadership power questionnaire (PLPQ) was used. Frequency distribution, percent distributions, mean score, analysis of variance, t-test, Pearson correlation analysis and Cronbach’s alpha coefficient were used in data analysis. There were a significant difference between the perceived and preferred perception of reinforced power style (t= -10.19, p<.05), while there was no relation between perceived and preferred perception of legal power style (t= -1.90, p>.05) and compelling power style (t= -.03, p>.05). Reinforced power is perceived and preferred more while legal power and compelling power are perceived and preferred less. Nurse Managers use the reinforced power the most on their staff nurses. Legal power and compelling power are following in order.
