    I encountered a related idea recently in another article. Google researched their teams to determine success or failure. Some groups had a bunch of very smart people. Others had average skills.

    The successful teams were those with good interpersonal relations. Everyone got heard. Some argued a lot. Others joked a lot. Neither dynamic out did the other.

    But it was Google found that teams members with higher ability to read people did better than those with lower interpersonal skills.

    So even teams with average skills could perform extremely well if they were in sync, no matter the style.

    Actually, the Wisdom of Crowds idea that each person acting independently, then aggregate result will be very close to correct.

    Four different ex. from the book

    Guessing the weight of a cow at a fair....787 people guessed and were with a single pound once averaged the responses (1127 lbs vs 1128)

    A missing submarine.... team from various backgrounds each provided their ideas. Combining every idea, came up with a location which no one individual picked. Sub was found 220 yards from spot....out of the entire Atlantic Ocean...

    Third ex: pro football betting. Line is set to split the wagers. Final score is near tbe final line in 99% of cases.

    Fourth ex. Challenger explosion. 4 companies primarily involved got hit with stock drops, but rocket manufacturer got biggest hit, 12% down vs. 3% down. 6 months later, rocket manufacturer found at fault.

    Investigation for improper stock trades followed, but none were found. Market just decided in hours what was found out months later.....

    I guess you could call it a mutual goal, but only in the extent they are trying to be right. They are competing with each other....

    That was my point, yes? I agree with it?

    Probably should have /notsarcasm'ed it. I agree with the premise, it makes sense from what I've seen. It's when people try to interfere with a 'correct' method that all 'should' adapt to that you get problems.

    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
