Ben Franklin effect The Ben Franklin effect is a psychological finding: A person who has done someone a favor is more likely to do that person another favor than they would be if they had received a favor from that person. Similarly, one who harms another is more willing to harm them again than the victim is to retaliate.[1] Recognition of effect by Franklin[edit] In the words of Benjamin Franklin, who famously observed the effect and for whom it is named, "He that has once done you a kindness will be more ready to do you another, than he whom you yourself have obliged In his autobiography, Franklin explains how he dealt with the animosity of a rival legislator when he served in the Pennsylvania legislature in the 18th century: Having heard that he had in his library a certain very scarce and curious book, I wrote a note to him, expressing my desire of perusing that book, and requesting he would do me the favour of lending it to me for a few days. Effect as an example of cognitive dissonance[edit] Notes[edit]

35 Great Social Media Infographics 35 Great Social Media Infographics [Note: I recently updated this compilation to include some more recent visualizations... you can see it here.] Here’s a collection of terrific social media infographics that might come in handy. As you probably know, infographics are visual representations of information, data, or knowledge. They illustrate information that would be unwieldy in text form and they act as a kind of visual shorthand, making information easy to understand and consume. It’s very helpful to use infographics in presentations, reports, articles, etc., to convey concepts. Most of these have been scaled down or cropped. If you know of any good ones that I’ve missed, please leave a comment and let me know! 1. 2. 10 Levels of Intimacy in Today’s Communication 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35.

Three Techniques for Quieting Your Mind Three Techniques for Quieting Your Mind Courtesy of Andrea A mere week ago, I was telling a client that I thought it was impossible to completely stop ourselves from thinking. Here are three of my newly discovered techniques for creating a quiet, peaceful, empty mind: 1. This technique came up in one of my coaching sessions. Our breathing cycle and the flow of our thoughts are closely linked. As we focus on those tiny pauses between our in- and out-breaths, we find that our mind quiets down at those points in our breathing. Without holding or interrupting your breath, begin extending those brief silences in your thoughts. 2. Imagine that you are holding a bunch of balloons in your hand. Instead of looking after them or watching them float away, focus on the empty space that is now in your hand. 3. Has your mind ever insisted on a particular stream of thought on and on, keeping you from sleep? If unwanted thoughts keep turning up in your mind, take a different approach! Blessings, Andrea

Critic Diane Ravitch, an education historian and NYU professor, was cited in the article. “What [students] need most,” she said, “is to know history, civics, foreign languages, economics, literature, and to engage in the arts.
