    I agree. Jim Whitehurst, CEO of Red Hat, “Too often we tout the intellectual capabilities of leaders by focusing on their IQ, when we should really be valuing their emotional intelligence quotient or EQ score. Being the smartest person in the room is not enough if you don’t have the capacity to work with the people who are in that room with you.When you work with and through communities of contributors as Red Hat does, where you can’t order anyone to do anything for you, your ability to listen, process, and not take everything personally becomes incredibly valuable.”

    Try to imagine the worst Doctor in the worst with the High EQ and the Best Doctor in the world with a low EQ. After a visit to the "worst doctor", his or her patients will most likely return. Now when we look at the "Best Doctor", his or her patients are more looking for a reason to sue the doctor just because they made them upset. This principle applies is so many areas of life.

    "Increasingly, individuals who were hired for their intellectual knowledge are being passed over for promotion because they lack the emotional intelligence necessary to succeed. Emotional intelligence is developed from doing the emotional labor of putting what we know into practice." Really enjoyed your article @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL!

    Is there a Gold Star that I could affix to my belly in Sneech fashion to let others know - I have all the Emotional Intelligence I need ? I would love to see the source citations for those statistics. EVERY EQ test that I have taken - could be, and has been gamed. If I know what you are looking for - pandering to it - is easy. (Invariably it is the Unicorn / Rainbow / Butterfly / Heart Emoji play-land that I like to avoid)

    Some people use misery as an attention seeking tool. All they ever manage to do with that behaviour is drive people away. Setbacks in life can make us feel very sad and unhappy for a period of time. You have to remember, though, that the only difference between failure and a setback is mindset. If you see your negative circumstances as temporary and within your control, then you can certainly create happiness for yourself by altering your circumstances and your point of view. You have to really like being happy more than you like being miserable, though. I liked this post. Thanks for writing it. I shared it with some miserable people I know. :)

    "People who are afraid of choosing happiness aren’t afraid of or resistant to being happy. They are afraid of the risk that comes with being happy. Happiness is vulnerable. Once we have it, we have something we can lose, something that can be taken away from us"

    Excellent @Emilia M. Ludovino - really good points - I particularly liked the analogy you used about bending your knee after a Knee operation "The first thing the doctors have them to do after surgery is bend the knee. They have to move. It hurts like f-ing hell and no one wants to do it but they have to. Otherwise the knee becomes frozen. The range of motion will become lost and the knee will become incapable of bending." Am sharing !

    As we grow older (and experience a vast multitude of happiness, pain and sorrow) we're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Call it "gun shy," but we're always wondering when happiness will end and the shit storm will start. It's one thing to embrace pain, but it's another to never let go. Psychiatrists call this the "martyr state" and people can live their whole lives like this. They find a comfort level "waiting for the other shoe to drop." What separates us from other animals (for good or bad) is we can understand pain. We can do something about it. That's part of our evolution. I think our biggest problem is NOT letting go of pain. It creates long periods of distress (and also wars, by the way). At some point, we have to leave the "martyr state." That's really what separates us from other animals.

    Ten Unmistakable Signs Of A Fear-Based Workplace by Liz Ryan.

    I did not know what a fear-based workplace was the first time I started working in one. At first, I thought the problem was me.

    Maybe I didn't have the right clothes or know the right business jargon. I walked on eggshells at work. I went home anxious and discouraged every night.

    Gradually it dawned on me that it wasn't just me. My co-workers were uptight, too. No one was having a good time in our workplace. What made everyone so nervous and fearful?

    It can take time to realize that you work in a fear-based environment. We can't bear to think that we took a new job in a broken company!

    A fear-based workplace is a place where fear is the predominant energy. A healthy workplace is one where trust is the predominant energy.

    When I was young I used to do the Mensa Tests in the Sunday Magazines in the UK. You were given an hour to do them. I used to do them in 10 minutes flat and made one deliberate mistake. When I told Nigel about his he laughed and said that it was his strategy too for doing IQ Tests. I never bothered to join Mensa though. I thought it would be rather boring to hang out with people who would spend their time bragging about how smart they were..... After all it must be the stunted who need to boast.

    A couple of good friends of mine were also diagnosed as being educationally subnormal and were sent to a 'special school'. One of them is now a Distinguished Engineer at JP Morgan and the other is a carpenter and life coach. Both have been assessed as having IQs over 200.

    #6 Thanks @Max🐝 J. Carter! I remember when I was about 16 my headmistress called my parents in for a meeting with me. She argued with them for quite a while about my low intelligence and the fact that I would not be a good candidate for university. She even suggested that I left school and enrolled in a secretarial college.... Fortunately two science degrees later I proved her wrong. Her silence on hearing the news was quite telling.... Miss Dees couldn't even be bothered to say a limp 'well done'. My parents immediately enrolled me in one of the UK's top schools and I did very well there.
    I wonder how many girls had their dreams crushed by this narrow minded alcoholic?

    I can relate to that @Max🐝 J. Carter! I actually got a very low score on the IQ tests I sat as a very young child as they are maths based and I am numerate dyslexic. It was only when I was helping a friend out at Kings College in London with a new IQ Test did I realise just how high my IQ was - I aced all the tests up to 180 - then Philip wanted me to do more and more (he was getting rather excited!). It was a rare sunny summer's day in London and I said no. He persuaded me to do one more... Like you my IQ is over 200. My brother in law frequently described conversations between myself and my sweet ex-husband Nigel as being in the 180 Club! I have never measured my emotional intelligence - perhaps I fear it would be a bit low.... I've noticed that Dr Travis does not respond to his comments either.... A rather aloof approach to someone that champions Emotional Intelligence don't you think?

    The only emotional empowerment required to survive a day of productivity is to be determined to do the best we can today (i.e. : seeking excellence rather than perfection) with the proviso that tomorrow is another day in which we can try to best our yesterdays. Any more requirement than that needs a therapist.

    I un-banked when I left the States, I haven't had a telephone in 3 years, if I were to say I have any Emotional Account - it would have been unplugged too. Emotions, and pandering to them, are quite avoidable. We live in a six second world where 'Reality' is faked, scripted, produced ~ where you are an easily replaceable line item on a corporate spread sheet ~ where 'love' is transactional, temporary and disposable ~ where war is not only inevitable but routinely scheduled. Society is merely a herd of widgets - managed through the life-cycle wickets of eat, sleep, work & reproduce well teased with money and goaded with fear before you are shuffled of to the meat packing slaughter house.
    I try to keep my Apathy in check with doses of Indifference and Detached Ambivalence - I am rewarded daily for those efforts.

    As someone who prides himself on positive thinking -- despite naysayers -- I completely concur with your astute advice, Emilia. It's just as easy to think positively than negatively and view the proverbial cup as half full, rather than half empty. I wish you all the best and hope your cup overflows with positive life experiences.
    Lastly, for those who have a negative mindset as knee-jerk reaction, here's some recommended reading by the godfather of positive thinking, the late and great Rev. Norman Vincent Peale https://www.amazon.com/Norman-Vincent-Peale/e/B000APPE7E Keep buzzing in 2017!

    I hear that women find an especially active tomatosensory cortex an especially endearing trait in a man. Did you know that people actually die from laughter. I found this particular story quite touching. "On 24 March 1975, Alex Mitchell, from King's Lynn, England, died laughing while watching the "Kung Fu Kapers" episode of The Goodies, featuring a kilt-clad Scotsman with his bagpipes battling a master of the Lancastrian martial art "Eckythump", who was armed with a black pudding."

    #6 Thanks for your thoughts, Gert, and of course the joke, which fits into the 'Mismatch of Expectation and Reality' category. This also brings up the concept of miscommunication by accident when we can only really laugh when we are in a remote situation or really know a person well, rather than in a face to face situation, particularly with strangers. I remember the tale of the unfortunate overseas student who arrived in UK and got himself into a number of awkward situations by frequently asking for "hairy twot". After a number of episodes (embarrassing to him but hilarious to others) it transpired he was looking for directions to Herriot Watt University.

    I was waiting for the punch line Ken...

    Seriously though, some great questions. Why do we laugh? Why did it evolve so that only one type of shrieking laughter is present in a restaurant when you and your partner are trying to have a semi-romantic evening?

    In a recent post I wrote on people's use of titles (vs. experience), I made mention of someone calling themselves "Chief Giggles Officer". I wrote that in a mocking tone. I stand corrected. Any of the people on the panel of the television show you referenced likely qualify for that title.

    @Ken Boddie An intriguing post Ken. I think we laugh for a few reasons. As a means of social bonding; where group cohesion was fostered long ago by touch, as groups increased in size verbal grooming and bonding replaced it – language, laughter and song. The other reason is that laughter is a response to unexpected juxtapositions or ideas – we have a certain train of thought or a fixed perspective and laughter is the response to having it changed and altered in an unforeseen way. Mostly we laugh because it feels good – the chemicals released in the body because of it, makes it a self-seeking act. The other side of the question is interesting too: why do we (try to) induce laughter in others? A long list it could be.

    According to a poll by Prof Richard Wiseman of the UK, here is the joke voted funniest: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"

    Hello all,

    Thank you for posting your thoughts on EI (or EQ, as I call it). I am new here to this platform, so please go easy on me!

    I am a certified Emotional Intelligence practitioner. After a great deal of research into this subject myself, I sought out to become certified in the most statistically reliable model of EQ (and there are more than a few out there): the EQ-i 2.0, which also includes a valid self-report, when administered correctly.

    Based on what you’ve described, this (to me) doesn’t sound like Emotional Intelligence at all (particularly the sharing of “secrets”), which is quite unfortunate. When it is presented correctly, by someone who understand what it does (and does not) measure, it is not only empowering, but actionable. Results are malleable, and b/c coaching is part of this process, one’s EQ “score” not only does, but should change when goals are set and action is taken.

    For more information about what EQ is and isn’t, I have a short article on my blog: http://atopcareer.com/eq-ei-emotional-intelligence-overview/, and I’ll be posting more on this topic once I become familiar with this medium.

    #2 I think the inner anchor is the ideal.anchor, it just needs the right trigger. It makes our filters working fine, most people link their inner anchor to a memory and courage, I like to link it with patience.
    Why I am.interested in EI is because of 3 things :
    A) someone I least expected who belonged to this field helped me, I got curious and the more I studied it the more shameless greedy people emerged who were the cut from the exact same cloth as phoney preachers.
    B) it has less to do with coaching and more with the habituation of sled contempt for the serious.cases and spoon feeding for many who don't have time to sort themselves out.
    C) Now I want to get work from clients and I find all this coaching etc when they themselves have diminishing revenue very unacceptable, spend 10 % of that on me or 50% of that on yourself , Get on your feet and start earning...Isn't spend when the wallets empty. Makes you more vulnerable.also I was their I could be their again.

    This is an assumption, I believe childhood learning coupled with one good teacher moulds the inner anchor, the teacher could be family/freind/teacher/anyone.cant their be a way of making it consistent

    First we perceive the world as a harmful environment and seek refuge in coaching, therapy, emotional intelligence etc.
    Then we areade aware of the exploitation and remove ourselves from that environment.
    What is the probability of a person bouncing in and out of places ?
    Also, couldn't a person develop and anchor/ refuge for self irrespective of the environment around and use that anchor to bounce back into a sensible emotional aware being? Stuff I ask myself and share here.

    This is an excellent concept and rings very true as you stated with your question, "What Stifles Creativity? " This is a question i try and answer everyday in my profession. When faced with leadership issues you not only have the creative steps of going forward but you have others in the organization that require you to bring them along. The overall answer to the question is fear.

    A broad answer but as @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher stated, "I thought it was a crazy idea...",overcoming our own limitations is the first key to becoming creative. Mind mapping i can only assume must be done within a vacuum of no fear. When you develop links across hemispheres their can't be channeling based on fears already established, they must flow freely.

    I like the idea of drawing a visual mind map @Amarish J. Khan 🐝. When I have time I will have to give it a try. It's true that we utilize both sides of our brain. It even works in cases of medical issues. I have a damaged nerve inside my inner ear which is closely connected to the Cerebellum. I was taught to do brain exercises to allow another part of my brain to compensate for the vertigo. I thought it was a crazy idea at first but it worked. It didn't get rid of it but I gained my balance back and most of my vertigo is under control now. They've even removed one side of the brain in children who had chronic, uncontrolled seizures and found the kids were able to function just as highly with one half of their brain & the seizures diminished greatly or disappeared.

    Just left a review of this fabulous book by a great bee, @Deb Lange and mentioned the fact that we met on beBee!!!

    Here is the most interesting fact about Deb Lange's book. It is helping me so much, that I want to spend all my available time playing, and walking, and sensing the world around me – I keep popping away from my keyboard when I sit down to write a review.

    I recently had the good fortune to meet Deb on a new social media site – beBee. We live in such a magical time. You can synchronistically bump into an author on the other side of the world, a few months before her book is published, strike up a few conversations, and then when the book is available – it is the exact guide that you need to help you help yourself through a period of immense transition.

    This is truly a MUST EXPERIENCE book as read is too one-dimensional to describe the full impact of learning about embodied wisdom. Deb Lange is a marvelous guide through the rites of passage that will allow us to operate with a full body intelligence.

    I really recommend that anyone looking to understand their sensory-based body wisdom get a copy of this book - the words and illustrations partner to create a sense of feeling what one is reading.

    #22 I agree with your sentiments here. I realize though that the language of wisdom must transcend the ideological to the present of human existence. Social media is not bad but it has offered new directions that i don't sense will allow us to evolve as a species.

    I share your insights with the group here that has been diligently discussing the tenuous situation of emotions and their outcomes. Like social media, emotions are not bad or good until we discern their value within the human dynamic. Although we can empathise with an individual and their needs, the results of their emotions as felt by mankind is another story. We can't merge the two.

    This sounds like a harsh statement, and it is. My emotions and how they direct me should have two components, others and then myself, and in that order. Should i choose myself first, then i should be prepared for the consequences of my actions. I am ok with those who place themselves first within their emotional sphere but, bare in mind that i am referring to human existence within a large social group. (Not personal reflective self awareness styled self talk.)

    Given this position, i would suggest that it creates interdependencies that propels mankind forward. Otherwise, with me first we create dependencies that separate us at the fundamental level. Your matrix is capturing the dichotomy.

    Part 2/2: This leads me to what #19, @Harvey Lloyd captures when he writes: "The ability to carry in my hand technology that allows for total connectivity has allowed me to live virtually while losing my skills within the human experience." It's not so much technology that I am concerned about, it's the impact technology has on "re-wiring" who we are. We are sensory beings and if we are deprived of certain sensory experiences, the same people that imagined these new devices will no longer be able to see beyond their function.

    Part 1/2: #14 #17 #18 Gentlemen, @David B. Grinberg, @CityVP Manjit and @Mohammed Sultan, your discussion is invaluable and I am excited to see it arise here. The depth of the comments; self-reflective, intelligent, informative and interpretative, and the questions that are raised, prove that it is emotion, especially fear, that distract from our ability to stay grounded in our human capacity. David, you who look out beyond the boundaries of earth, can not speak of limits and scope. Manjit proves that technologically based devices cannot replace humans when he says, "...explore flow with my learned capabilities to handle variety of information in a way that best represents my exploration. " Only a human (like Manjit) can think and express himself in this way. Another example comes from Mohammed Sultan when he differentiates between creative thinking which is binding to the moment and creative thinking that can also work in different boundaries. This can only come from a human source.

    12/12/2016 #20 Harvey Lloyd
    #14 I will have to go with you on this thought pattern. Although i understand the reply of @CityVP Manjit i believe we speak of two very different aspects of the discussions.

    Our journey of technology is one aspect while the impact of current technology is another. The future of technology may promise many things, healthcare, human safety and productivity, but what does that world look like based on where we are now? Clearly technology is leading the way to a new society that i don't think we have thought through. Many consumers who once were our customers are now without work, so they cant consume. We will no longer be able to barter our time for money and consume. Technology is taking the value of our time from the barter equation.

    I am not against technology, but am stating that if tech is going to change the barter system we have, then shouldn't we be working on that at the same rate as tech? If we think about it, i believe we can see tech at the center of the have and have not debate and the narrowing of the middle class.

    @Sara Jacobovici you are continuing to shed light in dark areas. Our challenging emotions are typically our yield and stop signs. But like when we experience these signs in driving we are called to act a certain way, then so we should when experiencing these emotions. Emotions should not change the journey but rather enhance our experience on the journey. Just as the signs of the road keep us safe.

    In our daily professional lives we have people we journey with and this causes these yielding emotions to come forward. Most importantly though we have to reconcile these emotions with each other. This is the human experience. Clearly, though there is a new kid on the block that i think you touch on. Technology.

    I find technology foreboding. It introduces to each group of professionals a myriad of data sets that can overwhelm and can also be generated in such a way that replaces humans. In reviewing the outputs of technology we now create a third participant within the discussion You/Me/Data. But data is binary in the sense that it is right or wrong about the future as perceived. Also, data is subjective in its appearance and collection.

    Although our imaginations did create the technology i don't believe we thought through the impact. I enjoy the impact up to the point my job, career, fiscal stability gets affected. The ability to carry in my hand technology that allows for total connectivity has allowed me to live virtually while losing my skills within the human experience.

    Your tree and understanding of problem solving comes from your history without the technology. What of the new/next generations that all they know is tech? Will they or can they grasp the concepts presented here?

    #17 Thanks for sharing your link.When we compare singularity or AI with what's been shared by @ Sara Jacobovici we at once will realize that both are talking about the creative thinking,but from two different angles.Sara is talking about creative thinking which is binding to the moment and can improve the current state of workplaces performance in the short term.Her creative thinking can also work in different boundaries anchored by the same rules,but can't be conceived for uncertain future.Whereas singularity is not limited to specific" time horizon" and can be conceived for the future and also in different boundaries.As a researcher I don't believe in the power of singularity or AI in which one can be vividly aware or see himself functioning a decade from now.Singularity of such kind that can tell the future or control it, is only owned by the power of God,otherwise scientists could have hurried up to clone it for the ordinary people.

    #16 Dear @David B. Grinberg you do know what those limits and scopes are because that is the emotional response that Sara is talking about here, and thus when I am pursuing information in how I am able to receive it, whether it is relevant that I understand it now and to see what I can grasp immediately, without setting out acres of personal time trying to understand these things at a deeper level. That deeper level has one compass which is to know our own flow. If we become overwhelmed we know we have flown to high or engaged in too many areas at once, or if we are underwhelmed then we know we have room to explore more.

    Take this proponent for singularity who wrote their thoughts about it, relating positive thinking with singularity - of course that is the opinion of this individual but this opinion is well within both of our limits and scope - of course all dependent on what else is occupying our field of attention at the time we attend to this material :

    Singularity Defined and Refined by Singularity Utopia (2013 Blog)
    https://www.singularityweblog.com/singularity-defined-and-refined/

    I don't want to flood others with information, but explore flow with my learned capabilities to handle variety of information in a way that best represents my exploration. Learning is as unique as our own individual DNA. You cannot become me, and I cannot become you- but the abundance we share is this opportunity to explore the way that makes most sense for us to explore. There is network intelligence (not network stupidity) which is to welcome what you can welcome so long as it leads to flow, liberation and freedom of your own mind and being.

    #14 Dear @David B. Grinberg, you are asking here about something unfathomable. There are people who have tried to put a perspective around the movement to what you describe as the brave new world in life and one of those is Kevin Kelly, because Kelly has the abstractive ability to begin to knit together the thinking that is dimensions above where most of us are and emerge from this rarefied atmosphere with something that we can put our minds around, or at least begin to establish what this map of the unknown may potentially look like.

    Here is Kevin Kelly talking about the Singularity as it applies to AI
    http://kk.org/thetechnium/the-singularity/

    This is no different to knowing we cannot think like Einstein but we can follow his example of imagining following a beam of light. We will only go so far in our own learning journey but it is sufficient enough to awaken our individual lives to the uncertainty and new possibilities emerging ahead.

    One of the steps we can take our own awareness is then follow the leads that will make most sense to us because we each know our own limits of understanding and scope of imagination. I cannot say what this limit and scope is for David B. Grinberg - only you know that.

    An example of a step I can take in my own learning journey in this particular stream of consciousness is simply to listen to someone like Vernor Vinge - because ideas he originated have been level set for the understanding of the earnest learner with basic curiosity.

    Thank you, Sara, for such an informative, educational and enlightening read. As someone who considers himself an amateur futurist (rightly or wrongly), I'm concerned that the frenetic pace of technology will soon overwhelm human capacities. Some scientists say that the average laptop computer is currently equivalent to the human brain. Others say artificial intelligence will be smarter than humans by the 2030s. Thus, keeping pace with new and evolving tech -- let alone staying ahead of the curve -- is a substantial challenge which will likely grow more difficult over time.
    According to "Moore's law" -- for example -- computing power doubles every two years (some say as little as 18-months). Additionally, many scientists and others predict that AI humanoid robots (or androids) will be capable of passing the so-called "Turing Test" as early as the 2030s as well. That means these AI androids will not only be much smarter than humans, but indistinguishable as well. Some fear they will replace humans altogether, not just jobs. As you know, many large companies are also adopting machine learning, AI and robotics in many aspects of their business operations to replace human employees. Thus, to coin a phrase, we indeed face a brave new world not only in business but in life generally. The subsequent challenges ahead of us are immense and historically game changing. THOUGHTS?

    #6 When companies treat people motivation as strategy they will value people emotion over capital or equity, and will think of the ROE -as Return On Emotion not Equity. Researches on motivation have shown that people feel more satisfied when they get regarded rather than being rewarded,because their emotion has become more important than the salaries they are paid.When companies treat motivation as strategy they will come to a conclusion that; when they trust people they will trust their customers,and the higher the trust level the higher ROE will be.Businesses also are about feelings and when feelings are suppressed we expect the ROE to get lower .You can't imagine how pride people feel when they get regarded ,they will extend their creative domain and stretch their thinking beyond the norms and logic to creativity and imagination.

    #4 @Mohammed Sultan, personally, I am always so encouraged and flattered by your comments. Thank you. Your insights are always appreciated, as well as your writing style. The take away, for me, of this comment has to be, "When the employee motivation is treated as a strategy, people will work in harmony to achieve the balance between their internal actions and their external impact." Thanks again.

    Hello @Sara Jacobovici- I am thrilled by your buzz and it deserves a welcoming waggling dance. You have shown in three examples how the initial emotional points may diversify into different patterns by different people and follow trajectories of their own.
    The first three feelings were negative as it is well-established that it is easier to stay in one domain of negative emotions than to make a jump to the domain of positive emotions. That frustration developed into disappointment and irritation is in line with what has been experienced. It takes energy to make the jump and this is evident from the emotions branching out patterns in your worked examples.
    You have now an emotions fingerprint-equivalent.
    One of the pioneering IBM CEOs said that it is managing people and their emotions that counts. Your buzz explains this beautifully.
    I am humbled for playing the role of a trigger in prompting you to write such a. thinking buzz on emotional patterns. I thank you for the mention of my name.

    @Sara Jacobovici It's really a creative post .You either have the attitude of an expert consultant or had been trained in your childhood on how to fit pieces into a synergistic whole (JIGSAW) and enjoyed the beauty and measured the impact of this process.Fit and balance between both sides the human and the physical..between our personal and professional interests ..between knowledge and feeling are crucial to build an emotional corporate jigsaw.The emotional org culture has become a necessity because it reflects our thoughts and feelings.When the employee motivation is treated as a strategy, people will work in harmony to achieve the balance between their internal actions and their external impact.The shape and the beauty of the future corporate jigsaw will depend to large extent on how well the internal parts,the external impact and our actions can all be kept in balance and lead to strategic moves in the right time.

    Conscious and Subconscious Questions
    Conscious and Subconscious QuestionsI say the more we know, the more we should ask questions to discover how little we know. Surprisingly, what we know for sure becomes our handicap. We all know for example, that water is an essential ingredient for our health and vitality. We know...

    I used to ask all the big questions, then i got into this existential depression because my molecules didn't some big enough or infinite enough to compete with the universe. Then i stopped caring about entropy, afterlives, why am i hear, what is my purpose collective purpose, and i just started focusing on me. I'm not designed to be a scientist, knowing about black matter just confuses me and makes me feel minuscule., I'm a more philosophical person. I think they're both people of reason. I would rather focusing on my inner being than the outer world, but i'm so glad other people go explore it.

    #155 I think that is the beauty and the sadness of it all. Crossing the border might be an event not noticed by the traveler.

    No matter what border the traveler crosses, at some point the traveler will realize there is no way back.

    The traveler crossed the line and lost his past. Is that why so many of us do not travel?

    I can understand them, the stayers. Traveling is about finding new and losing old. I can understand it does not appeal to everyone.

    #153 Now you got me thinking.... @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.

    "Between freedom and illusion there is a borderline of knowledge."

    This is an interaction I truly love. ......Between freedom and illusion there is a borderline of knowledge...... It is just great, I did not realize that while commenting. You kick my thoughts a step further and at this time I am not sure why.....

    Between freedom and illusion there is a borderline of knowledge. There are so many ways to look at that. I will have to let it sink in.

    Thank you!

    #148 I agree @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.

    "And so there is a danger of always searching." That was indeed a bit of a one-liner. What I tried to say.... And that is where the complexity cuts in....

    There are people who are sure they know. There are people who are sure they don't know, and they search further.

    At what point in life and knowledge are we happy with who we are? Free?

    Am I to early reaching that point? I made up my mind. I am sixteen years old and I know it all. What I know is the rigid setting for the rest of my life.

    Will I never reach that point? I can't make up my mind. I am 120 years old and I am not sure. I must learn more.

    Those are two extremities, I know. They fell in my mind, reading your conversation with Max. Those extremities do not represent you or Max. My knowledge of the both of you is too superficial.

    Ah well. What did Come to my mind? The extremities.

    "Know" to soon and freedom is lost. Never know and freedom is an illusion. Where do I step in? At what point in my life I feel secure, without developing my own tunnel vision? It feels like a Gaussian curve with a standard deviation of close to nothing.

    Does this explain my one-liner more?

    P.S. I am only here to exchange thoughts, not to prove my right. Thank you for your open, respectful comment.

    #147 @Joris Plaatstaal- There is a concept of "DEgrees of Freedom in statistics. I realize I lost one degree from your comment "But in the end we are all free. Even people that trade in their freedom for A truth. They are free to lose their freedom.

    And so there is a danger of always searching.

    #141 It comes with being on social media @Ali Anani. No different to life. Everywhere, anytime we follow leaders who know......

    In the end you can only follow yourself. I think you do just that. Your questioning, an admirable gift.

    But in the end we are all free. Even people that trade in their freedom for A truth. They are free to lose their freedom.

    And so there is a danger of always searching.

    Life is so lovely complicated! It is all I expected. A blind walking forwards. Infinite.

    Freedom is universal. But we seem to not live in the same universe.... Another complication, yes!

    #140 Wisdom goes beyond understanding to interpretation of facts,it makes one's light more brighter than another and will help us see others pitfalls.We are always required to find a synergy between our personal and professional objectives.Our knowledge base and skills often go beyond the recipes of classical behavior psychology books to coaching and mentoring , visioning and inspiring people .We always think of more creative ways to develop the students skills to stretch their thinking beyond the norms of classic books.Our thoughts are always a reflection of our feeling and when we view others as "wrong"we trigger our negative emotions and may regress into a negative mood.

    I read by a quote years back stating that "I have to be 300% I am correct before I dare say somebody is wrong".
    Some comments are sidelining these discussions by making sweeping comments and turning the discussions from win- win to I win-you lose. It is sad it is truly wasting our times. Just stating somebody is flatly wrong without solid proofs and with many not seeing eye-to-eye with him is unacceptable. I hope discussions here shall only focus on the theme of the buzz and not sideline it to show off what we know. If needed and the commenter has such opposing ideas I suggest he writes a separate buzz.

    #134 I'm sure you misunderstood me.My words say what I mean about your real creativity.Our creative thinking is not based on any delusion ,we may be in different positions but we have a common interest that can bridge this gap.It has to be conceded that knowledge about people is not necessarily of a scientific nature.Not only that ;possibly the phenomenon of humanity will never be susceptible to the kind of dominating prestige in business.Not only that;Our creative thinking or innovation develop from blending our inner creative life and its application to the business world.I still remember the wisdom of Kant when he quoted; Science is organized knowledge and wisdom is organized life,and on the importance of concepts he also quoted;thoughts without context are empty and intuition without concept are blind.Believe me it's not a double- face or a double- talk or am setting a group against another.

    #135 Thank you for your very elaborative response dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I share this perspective with you "Now link this with diversity and one does not need to build a bridge for that - for the connection point is within, it is within mind, within spirit and within body". I just wanted to ensure that you didn't mean bridge. With this explanation I am in agreement with you.
    One definition of culture is that it is an emerging product of how people interact. I believe this is consistent with your response. If the "within" of individuals is healthy their interactions should yield a healthy culture. Culture that accept differences and find them a way to explore varieties of possibilities.

    #128 Monica Hawkins wrote a piece last year in Chief Learning Officer Media (CLOMEDIA) called "Diversity: Catalyst for Corporate Culture and Value" http://www.clomedia.com/2015/05/01/diversity-catalyst-for-corporate-culture-and-value/

    That is a nice read but there is a problem with it is how can diversity act as a catalyst if culture is considered as something we can manufacture and what is the primary problem here? How can the catalyst for culture be sitting outside ourselves?

    The problem with the way people see diversity today is in trying to fix something that is natural. Difference is natural and variety is what is helpful to nature. Why not simply begin with the primary catalyst for diversity - the difference within us?

    In the same CLOMEDIA is an article High Potential Development (HiPo) and it mentions heat as a catalyst - while the article has nothing to do with diversity http://www.clomedia.com/2016/11/23/high-potential-development/ but it does speak to where this catalyst is, which is WITHIN. The article is addressing that 73% of HiPo programs fail. Now link this with diversity and one does not need to build a bridge for that - for the connection point is within, it is within mind, within spirit and within body.

    Sometimes one has to point things out to people because they don't operate from difference, such as why call a site CLOMEDIA when it sounds like CHLAMYDIA which is sexually transmitted disease? This is why program mentality fails because we think we need to build bridges, when we simply need to build humanity. Diversity is a catalyst when it emanates from WITHIN us. When we are focused on the external argument where is the question within either conscious or subconscious? There is no heat in that question when it is sitting outside of ourselves - no synapses only a bridge, no heartbeat only a wish and no will only a policy.
