Superstitious ThoughtsWe tend to impose order through superstition, rituals and conspirational explanations when there is a lack of control. Martin Butz in Anticipatory behaviour in adaptive learning systems wrote, “In the early 20th century, Bronislaw Malinowski noticed that islanders in the Pacific who fished offshore beyond the coral reef displayed many superstitious rituals and ceremonies to invoke magical powers for safety and protection, while inshore fisherman carried out their job with a high degree of rational expertise” Whilst in Modern day systems, Jennifer Whitson writes “People see false patterns in all types of data, imagining trends in stock markets, seeing faces in static and detecting conspiracies between acquaintances,” Do we tend to see more rituals in more uncontrollable and erratic systems, jobs, industries, sports etc?
