Social anxiety is related to a preoccupation with making mistakes, finds a new study that monitored children’s brain activity. : science
from the comments:
"Behavioral inhibition (BI) is a temperament identified in early childhood that is a risk factor for later social anxiety. However, mechanisms underlying the development of social anxiety remain unclear. To better understand the emergence of social anxiety, longitudinal studies investigating changes at behavioral neural levels are needed. Method

BI was assessed in the laboratory at 2 and 3 years of age (N = 268). Children returned at 12 years, and an electroencephalogram was recorded while children performed a flanker task under 2 conditions: once while believing they were being observed by peers and once while not being observed. This methodology isolated changes in error monitoring (error-related negativity) and behavior (post-error reaction time slowing) as a function of social context. At 12 years, current social anxiety symptoms and lifetime diagnoses of social anxiety were obtained."

Sally Kohn: Let’s try emotional correctness | Video on TED.com
A TEDtalk on how opposite sides of the political spectrum can communicate with each other. The key is coming to the table with the same compassion you would like them to have for you. She says Sean Hannity is emotionally correct. Not sure what she means by that, since I don't quite understand where his compassion is.

The Good Show - Radiolab
In the 3rd segment (One Good Deed Deserves Another), the guy describes the winning computer algorithm that created the most favorable outcomes for The Prisoner's Dilemma: Start by being good. Then play "tit for tat" - if they screw you, screw them back (on the next turn), if they are good, be good back (on the next turn). The key phrase? "Be Good First" - this is in line with what I've always said. If you want people to be nice to you, be nice first. If you want people to smile at you, smile first. If you want people to do good towards you, do good first. .............. In any case, after the winning algorithm had "children", the winning algorithm from that bunch was one that was "generous tit for tat", meaning that it retaliated 90% of the time, not 100% of the time. This allowed the "echoes" to die out quickly and did not keep a bad thing going.

How African Cattle Herders Wiped Out An Ancient Plague : The Salt : NPR
world-records = Only twice in human history have we managed to eradicate a disease from the planet.

social, groups, communities = "They proved better at the job than veterinarians, in part because they knew their animals.

This success, in fact, created another problem for the eradication effort, because it threatened the status of professional veterinarians. "It threatened the core of their livelihood," says Mariner. "Here you come and say, 'Somebody else can do this better than you.'"

Veterinarians had the power to shut the whole program down. So a key to the campaign was solving that political problem by giving both professionals and local farmers important roles that rewarded them for success."

Why Flattery is Effective - Research - Harvard Business Review
Persuade a customer or colleague on a conscious level, and he or she will retain that conviction only until a better counterargument comes along (to paraphrase my favorite blogger, Clif Reichard). Persuade a person on a gut level, and the feeling will last and last. And last.

"Implicit attitudes tend to remain untouched by contradictory explicit information," Jaideep Sengupta, a professor of marketing at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, told me by phone the other day. "It's a testament to how insidiously flattery affects us."

ConnectIT USA - Interpersonal skills trump technical knowledge in job search
Having a winning personality has always helped in making friends or getting a date, but a recent survey confirms it also opens doors in the job search. When presented with accounting or finance candidates who possess similar qualifications, 31 percent of chief financial officers (CFOs) interviewed said applicants' people skills would tip the balance over such attributes as software proficiency and advanced certifications. This is up significantly from five years ago when interpersonal skills were cited by only 1 percent of respondents.

10 Rules That Govern Groups « PsyBlog
"successful leaders were those who initially fitted in with the group then slowly began to suggest new activities adapted from the old. Children didn't follow potential leaders who jumped straight in with new ideas. Leaders first conform, then only later, when trust has been gained, can they be confident that others will follow."

tweenbots | kacie kinzer
In New York City, we are very occupied with getting from one place to another. I wondered: could a human-like object traverse sidewalks and streets along with us, and in so doing, create a narrative about our relationship to space and our willingness to interact with what we find in it? More importantly, how could our actions be seen within a larger context of human connection that emerges from the complexity of the city itself? To answer these questions, I built robots.

Tweenbots are human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal.

Given their extreme vulnerability, the vastness of city space, the dangers posed by traffic, suspicion of terrorism, and the possibility that no one would be interested in helping a lost

The Invisible Grip - Esquire
It is a very particular skill set. The eye-contact specialist is like the one guy in the game of pickup basketball who knows only how to box out for a rebound. Relentless and a little annoying, he uses his skill, presses his opponents with the fundamentals. It may not work every trip down the court, but eventually things bounce his way. Over time, this habit--establishing and maintaining eye contact--creates favorable situations and produces results. The eye-contact specialist gets talked to first, dealt with most promptly, and responded to most thoroughly. He's always first in line for a reason.

[ Integrated mar.com ] Hiring? 6 interview questions you need to ask
When it comes to interviewing potential employees, you need to ask the loaded questions. That's because hiring the right people is central to the continuing growth and success of your business. So you need to use your interview wisely -- to identify job skills, target personal strengths and weaknesses and get a feel for someone's sense of teamwork and cooperation. But that doesn't mean you have to wallow in a snooze-inducing "Do you work well with others?" spiel. You can interview like an expert -- and get the information asked for in a query and "undercover" feedback that plays a key role in hiring decisions.
