The habituation of a culture bubble

Habituation occurs when you grow accustomed to stimuli that happen repeatedly. The loud fridge, but you will later become used to it. People always being late for meetings can make you angry at first, but later on, you are not bothered by it.

Habituation has nothing to do with common sense or approval. We become habituated because "that is the way things work around here."

A culture bubble normalizes the good and bad of your company culture and slowly alter your perception. Your judgment ceases to be as sharp, and you stop asking questions. You may downplay its strengths and tolerate outdated or dysfunctional behaviors.

It's not hard evidence that gives us our sense of certainty. Its the feedback of our peers that guides us to tell right from wrong.

Unwritten rules are never formally agreed on. They emerge when we face a problem together and find a solution that gets the job done. Everyone shares the unwritten agreement and expects everyone to comply.
