The more status games one plays the more happy (s)he will be.

This means being part of more groups you care about: your professional circle, family, extended family, interest groups, friends etc. The larger the number of groups, the more opportunity for scoring status points.

When we consider conscience, the ultimate judge in our head, can also be considered a form of a status game. Conscience is just an imagined, a simulated game. We subconsciously imagine what others would think about our actions.

That's why we are proud about ourselves when we do something good even when we are alone. Or we feel shame when we don't raise to the standards of our imaginary audience.

Life Is A Status Game

Everything we do in life can be explained as a struggle to win more clout in a community we care about. Generally status can be gained in 3 ways:

  • Dominance: Impose your will through force. This applies to dictators as much as verbally abusive partners.
  • Virtue: Win points by being better. Think Michelle Obama or Mahatma Ghandi.
  • Competence: Be the winner. In business like Donald Trump. Or in beauty like the Instagram models.

Status can be tied to narcissism and other negative traits, but it's the driver behind all our actions, including the positive. We could have never invented anything without it.

Cue-Dependent Forgetting: remembering certain things by thinking of equivalent memories.

Frequency Ilussion / Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon: if you see something once and start paying attention to it, you will see it more often, if you buy a car you will see the same car more often.

Empathy Gap: we are bad at empathizing with others, but expect others to empathize with us.

Bizarreness Effect: we remember bizarre things better than normal things.

Humor Effect: we remember things with humor better than without.

Von Restorff Effect: we remember one striking thing in a series of equivalent things better.

Attentional Bias: subconsciously we choose points where we pay attention to. A smoker is more likely to notice other people smoking.

Illusory Truth Effect: by repeatedly hearing false information we come to believe it is the truth.

Mere Exposure Effect: we give preference to things we have seen more often or are familiar with.

Context Effect: the context in which we see something affects how we look at something and what value we place on it.

Availability Heuristic: memories that happened recently outweigh memories with more impact from the past.

Why Two Pizza?

Bezos' decision to keep meetings small in order to encourage productivity can be backed up by science. According to Hackman, this is because communication problems increase “exponentially as team size increases.” Ironically, the larger the team, the more time will be spent on communication instead of producing work.

Pizza Is Here

The 2 pizza rule is often credited to Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon. Bezos is known to have used 'two pizza' meetings and small project teams to foster a decentralized, creative working environment when Amazon was a startup.

The Two Pizza

The 2 pizza rule is a guideline for deciding how many attendees should be invited to a meeting. According to the rule, every meeting should be small enough that attendees could be fed with two large pizzas.
