This blog rocks.
This kinda touched on by Allan Botton in his very insightful Status Anxiety.
Usually "average" is only comfortable. (I find it interesting that the picture shows "average" at the bottom of a trough ... or is it a "rut"?)If you want to achieve something outstanding, it is important to note that "comfortable" or "average" is not always "good".
I wonder when a person reaches the lower saturation point :) Anyone care to explain?
Seems to me to be a difference thing. The more different from the majority you do, the more you get mocked.
Is that an upside-down bell curve? I'm not a statistician or anything (can you tell?), I'm just curious because it so accurately depicts this situation.Atunu and shadowbird: I think this illustrates the "tall poppy" syndrome, as its known in Australia, or "the nail that sticks up gets hammered down" syndrome, as it's known in Japan
This is soooo good. Everything on youe blog is good. Truly brilliant! Keep 'em coming!
