MORE IDEAS FROM Super Thinking

( In business dealings give others a reason to trust you)

A superior outcome is much more likely if everyone involved does not consider the situation as just one turn of the game but, rather, if both sides can continually take turns, running the same game over and over—called an iterated or repeated game.

Over Optimization

Ultimately, to be wrong less, you also need to be testing your assumptions in the real world, a process known as de-risking. There is risk that one or more of your assumptions are untrue, and so the conclusions you reach could also be false.

Unfortunately, people often make the mistake of doing way too much work before testing assumptions in the real world. In computer science this trap is called premature optimization, where you tweak or perfect code or algorithms (optimize) too early (prematurely).

On Negotiations

There are usually several dimensions underlying a negotiation, and each party will value these dimensions differently. This opens up the possibility for a give-and-take where you give things you value less and take things you value more. As a result, both parties can end up better than they were before, getting things they wanted more and giving things they wanted less.

RELATED IDEA

We make quick assumptions, errors because of not seeing evidence and so many more erroneous thanks. This doesn't mean that our brain isn't smart, but that it helped us survive a thousand years ago and that our brain is still wired for the homo sapiens of 10.000 BC.

Introduction- Cognitive errors

It's very common that each and every one of us makes mistakes, what the author, Rolf Dobelli says, experts call as cognitive errors.

Some of these errors are:

  • We overestimate our knowledge more often
  • Fear of losing, drives us much more than gaining something of similar value
  • We tend to adjust our behaviour in the presence of others
  • Exceptional stories make us neglect the average success rate of an action
  • And many such more...

Deal with criticism positively-

  • Stand up for yourself : Defend your position if you think it is right. Be Firm but Fair.
  • Get all Relevant information: It ensures clarity of thought while defending yourself. Knowledge is the ammunition to counter attack.
  • Be slow to anger: Don't lose your cool. If lost, The critic ignores or becomes resistant to what you are saying.
  • Don't be passive: Stop being timid, apologetic and indecisive.
  • Be patient: Wait and listen what the critic is trying to say.
  • Actively seek constructive criticism: It helps to learn
  • Don't take unfair criticism to heart and worry.
