Research: How You Feel About Individualism Is Influenced by Your Social Class

哈佛商业评论

社会心理学研究已发现,人们会说谎,而且经常说谎。<p>一项重要研究显示,人们平均每天说谎一到两次。谈判者也不例外。根据1999年到2005年期间的研究,如果具备动机和机会,做交易时大约一半人会说谎,希望借此占得上风(虽然实际上可能起负面作用,阻碍双方找到创造性的双赢方案)。因此在准备谈判时,你必须采取措施防范可能的欺骗行为。<p>很多人认为,为此应提高识破谎言的能力。而一项元分析(针对研究的研究)发现,人们正确识破谎言的概率只有54%,不比掷硬币好多少。即便专供在可控环境下测谎的多种波动描记器,也有很多无解难题,判断错误的概率达1/3。人们尤其无力识别包裹在奉承话语中的谎言:老板承诺随时可能给你升职,供应 …

对于时间的保护,你没有勇气,制造勇气也要上

自然定律告诉我们:你爬得越高,想要占用你时间的人就越多。<p>我们之所以与他人见面交流,很大程度上都是从自我利益出发,比如为了获取信息、征求建议、建立联系,以及寻求天使融资等。另外,在各种见面请求中,有一些确实具有诱惑力,比如一个付费的演讲邀请,接受知名媒体采访的机会,或者一个高端会议的邀请函等。<p>到底该如何掌控自己的时间呢?最简单的解决办法,就是忽略所有请求,但是这样做的风险系数极高。比如,在几年前的一次会议上,我曾和一位商界顶尖思想家进行了推心置腹的交流。她说她每天都会收到大量邮件,感到不堪重负。她是如何解决的呢?她忽略了所有邮件,甚至包括我的采访邀请,以及推荐我的新书的请求……我很喜欢她,知道她 …

上下班路上的时间也是时间,千万别荒废

每天全世界数百万人奔波在通勤的道路上。美国统计局数据显示,仅在美国就有约2500万人每天通勤时间超过90分钟,其中约60万“超级通勤者”每天单程通勤至少90分钟。英国人平均每天通勤时间为54分钟(2003年通勤时间为45分钟)。从意大利米兰到菲律宾马尼拉,世界上大多数主要城市的通勤时间都超过一小时。<p>但极少有人享受通勤。福特汽车公司在6个欧洲城市访问了5500人,很多人都认为通勤比工作、搬家或看牙医压力更大。2006年诺贝尔奖得主丹尼尔·卡尼曼(Daniel Kahneman)和同事在一项调查中访问了909位住在美国得州的女性,受访者表示早晨通勤是一天当中令人最不愉快的部分;晚上回家通勤的不愉快 …
