Communicate on the Same Wavelength



It turns out that there is a correlation of cultural factors indicated by Geert Hofstede, namely individualism, distance to power, masculinity and avoidance of uncertainty, with the average results of the big five (McCrae, Terracciano, 2005). For example, individualism correlates with extraversion, and conscientiousness correlates with high hierarchy.
Culture shock is a concept related to the emotions we experience when interacting with another culture. This process is typically divided into several stages: honeymoon, negotiation, adjustment. The names are self-descriptive enough to understand their essence. Culture shock in business increases business risk. It’s easy to commit a faux pas, even (or maybe especially) when […]
Since the 1970s, empathy has been declining in the US and narcissism has been on the rise. It is believed that the source of this trend is the development of the Internet and the increasing use of social media, which encourages self-promotion and focuses on the self.

Artificial emotional intelligence, also known as affective computing, is the coding in devices or software of the ability to read emotions and adapt them to the needs of the user. Usually, it’s about recognizing emotions and translating them to the other side. A good example is interpreting very minor changes in the facial expression or […]
As humans, we attribute human characteristics to robots. We add, as it were, features that we think are correlated. So, if a robot “smiles,” we attribute emotions to it, even though we know that a robot cannot feel emotions. The release of automatism in us in the form of a reaction, e.g. to a smile, […]
Robots and programs can behave empathetically, recognizing emotions and responding to them automatically. As humans, we are also influenced by automatisms. We react to what the robot does and ascribe certain human characteristics to it – we anthropomorphize it. Experience has shown that if a robot shaped like a small dinosaur (Pleo) is held by […]
While empathy is the ability to identify and empathize with another person’s emotions, in the case of a narcissist, the ability to recognize emotions may still exist, but there is no stage of empathizing with the other person; therefore knowledge about emotions is not a strong driver for behavioral changes. It’s a myth that narcissistic […]
The “Nature of Human Behavior” monthly conducted research in which the authors found that by examining the number of messages exchanged between people, the transition to remote work for all employees resulted in communication network silos. In short: we talk more within our team than between teams. This negatively affects the company’s organizational culture and […]
Assertiveness is in Costa and McCrae’s big five sub-dimension of extroversion. People with high scores on this scale are dominant, effective, direct, and often take the initiative to lead a group.
The tendency towards order is in Costa and McCrae’s big five sub-dimension of conscientiousness. People who score high on the tendency towards order sub-dimension are well organized. They like to live according to routines and schedules. They keep lists and make plans. They avoid distraction and clutter.
Altruism is in Costa and McCrae’s big five sub-dimension of agreeableness. People with high scores in the altruism sub-dimension are considerate to others, generous and they are willing to help other people.
Imagination is in Costa and McCrae’s big five sub-dimension of openness. People who score high in this sub-dimension have a very vivid imagination and often fantasize. This is one of their ways to enrich their lives. It also makes them very creative.
