Take "The Other" To Lunch


Are We There Yet!

PlayingThis post is not about time management but about the psychology of how we perceive time and the world around us at two distinctly different stages of our life namely childhood and adulthood. During childhood, if I was constrained to a place, for example inside a train or a car, even during a short 60 minute ride I used to become very impatient. In real life we watch children strapped to a seat in a car ask “Are we there yet?’ every five minutes. Curiosity, impatience and spontaneity are very common traits in children. They are not afraid to admit that they do not know something.

Recently I saw a mom and a small kid in a mega mall.

Psychology of the Indian Mind: Power-plays that I want to see perish

P  O  W  E  R  P  L  A  Y     O  N  E  :  Flattery: Take the bait or suffer.     

     A lot of conversation I face in India, despite my young age, borders on unnecessarily self-demeaning or outright sycophantic. It makes me feel rather like an attractive woman sitting at a bar, being approached by diffident “nice” guys disguising what they truly want from me (the temporary shot to the arm and ego-high that comes from winning a hottie’s affections for a night, which is replaced by insecurity the next day) by making clowns of themselves in an attempt to light up my face, buying me expensive stuff hoping I’ll put out, and complimenting everything I do, literally buying me the purse and putting their balls in it for me (And that is why “nice” guys are not really nice guys, and why they finish last).

On Leadership, Fear, Control and Inner Strength - Part Two

Strong Personalities and Inner Strength

I remember reading, flicking through the pages of an Osho book, that bravery is not the lack of fear, but action in spite of the full presence of it. Correct. Very few people are actually brave in the face of fear, and it is these people who are strong enough to lead, first themselves, then others. The anxieties and apprehensions that limit the average dude’s possibilities in social life, are not ignored by alpha personalities. They are, to the contrary, felt in their entirety, in all their painful glory, but overcome. That is the test of personal strength. You cannot lead if you do not pass this again and again, and are worthy of leadership only as long as you can pass it.

Leadership, Fear, Control and Personality: Part One

Right, psych lesson everyone. I’ve just finished reading Uday’s best post yet, a simple but insightful assortment of society into leaders and followers, and want to get some things off my chest.. Uday speaks from years of interactive experience at management level positions in IT, so he’s in the know, and you’ll find my arguments to be i-sorta-knew-that-but-just-never-said-it-aloud things anyway. Forget Freud and perverted little boys, this is what psychology’s really about.

So I’ll break it down for you – three personality types – the drifter, the cog, and the leader.
