Negative feedback

Negative feedback is more significant, psychologically and neurologically, than positive feedback. The brain interprets the latter as simply a recognition of an ongoing process, but interprets the latter as a signal for a failure.

  • Negative feedback therefore has much higher weight and value to the brain and psychology of anyone.
  • It's important to understand that someone cannot thrive usually on a diet of solely negative feedback: they could make it out, e.g., if they have a source of positive from another area of life, but not likely to have a good time otherwise.

Feedback in general

Context: How to think about feedback among a team of engineers, including the engineering manager, product owner, project lead.

  • Feedback is a gift
  • Positive feedback is a very constructive way to encourage behavior.
  • Negative feedback essentially discourages behavior, but may provoke in general a stance of defensiveness
  • Therefore: Try to balance the positive and the negative elements of a single feedback "session"
  • Balance both the quantity, but also the quality: if negative feedback is very specific, then the positive parts should also be very specific.

RELATED IDEA

When you want to achieve some project milestones, you definitely have some contraints to work with, and when you are working with a team you often hold meetings to brainstorm about these ideas, however I am pretty sure many of us do the mistake of putting the constraints in front of them right at the beginning of the first discussion. This might turn out to be ineffective since most people get biased by constraints.

It makes more sense to convey them the idea without constraints, let them prepare some document about their thought process and then introduce the constraints in the next meeting.
