Volume is too low
Best advertisement for aptitude tests I’ve heard
who wants a lawyer that takes 10 minutes too answer ? thinking fast on your feet is important ..no ?
*Grant needs to lose his ego. He loses the audience with his tone alone (not that his reasoning is that solid either.) But at least he'd come off as trying to explore the topic WITH Gladwell, instead of 'battling' him. And lose the jargon, man. Remember who your audience is.*
Gladwell - does well to tolerate this youngster. Fast talking is not brilliance or an IQ indicator. Its just an inability to control your thoughts or your jaw. Gladwell has a very poised and deliberate cadence to all of his public appearances. The youngster should model Malcom Gladwell's conversational pace.
Adam grant is an extreme hare with no unspeeded upside.
I love the fact that Malcolm thinks so deeply about things. He takes the time to thoroughly understand his subject matter.
I think the same reason firms gravitate toward hares is the same reason most talent agents are lawyers.
If you watch other conversations (this is not an interview) between Adam Grant and Malcolm Gladwell they always interact like this. They challenge each other and put forward their points of view. I watched a different conversation where they changed roles; the comments section there reflected the comments here, but were critical of Malcolm Gladwell.
Grant’s first argument is fatally flawed. The accumulation of grades from classes weighting in-class exams so highly would not check the bias Gladwell described toward speed, it would help would actually perpetuate it.
LSAT tests for ability to make it through law school, not as much to be a lawyer. The hare has probably trained himself to not labor over questions that eat up time. That is a skill. The record is overwhelmingly long and clear that people who do well on LSAT do better in law school and graduate. Law school demands reading lots of dense material and comprehending it fast, which is what LSAT tests. There are not a lot of papers in law school. A bar exam is also timed. Law schools do not want people who take 6 years to graduate. Similarly, law firms want people who bill lots of work by doing it quickly. A tortoise will have her bills cut because she takes more time than a client is willing to pay for. I also doubt Gladwell’s hypothetical is possible because questions on admission tests are weighted and missing a large block of questions means missing a lot of easy questions which costs more than missing difficult questions. Gladwell is concluding tortoise work will be better than the hare, but that is an assumption that is only supported by his anecdotal journalism example. The time one takes to write a piece must also include all the time thinking about it. Some fast writers have thought about their work better before writing, and some slow writers do a lot of discovery along the way. Experience is also a factor in law, and even journalists often cover a beat to improve efficiency.
Disagreeableness is not part of the big 5... what he meant to say was Agreeableness.
Here in our island state of Singapore, the government thrusts our heads right into 'Big Data analytics'. Two things came up in my mind: 1) Neurotic leaders are already decided to 'reset' and overhaul exiting systems deemed out of fashion. 2) People in mid-career are told to change their specialties through short courses that might to lead to new jobs instead of waiting for existing jobs to become obsolete and lose their living. A whole army of 'Adam Grant' type of people in charge at various levels in numerous institutions either resist the transformation due to their existing interests and hang on to their power bases, or execute changes like auditors pointing to mistakes of others that they found out. We are void of consultant-mindsets that provide possible solutions beside problem statements. Practising consultants would charge for such work or do nothing and watch things rot. Transformation of peoples' mindsets take so much time that changing leaders would be faster - back to speed. Yet we have limited talented people according to the government - who hang on to school systems that line everyone up to keep producing 'Adam-Grants'. "If our school don't shift, the country cannot shift!" - said a young panelist to the Education Minister. Meanwhile teachers settle in their 'cocoons' blaming students for not being like their young selves - conforming and submissive to rigid self-proclaimed rigorous institutions.
I could listen to this man talk for centuries, he is fascinating and then some.....
Pardon me for riding on the enigmatic insights of others using contrarian value-adding remarks, but I was listening to Malcolm's speeches twice to get his points clear. Then I started reading his books for a second time and got my own insights while reading again. The biggest take-away I had from Malcolm was to read anything written twice and that relieves me of the 'hare-anxiety' and enjoy 'tortoise-stroll'.
The interviewer seemed more interested in showing off his shiny new set of tools than he was engaging a useful dialogue. He is the Dennis Miller of statistical analysts.
Malcolm and Adam are opposites. The interesting thing about that is the realization that between these two opposing personality styles lies a whole multitude of other personalities.
That interviewer is awful. He doesn't listen and tries to come across as super read and smart just by talking fast. Yakkks...
Adam Grant was at best his authentic self talking with speed for power - talking fast and loud doesn't make you more correct - and at worst an outcome of the very implementation of speed over everything else i.e. Wharton and many Law schools.
YES! Thank you so much for posting. Malcom is great.
In context, Malcolm is relatively great thanks tot the overwhelming number of 'Hares' running all over the place. Without the hares, tortoises would have no one ot be compared to as tortoises are relatively too fast compared to snails.
