Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The Impressionists were better for shunning the Salon. History and experience ought to teach us to be suspicious of Goliaths, because the very thing that makes the giant so terrifying is also the source of his weakness.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Two people may arrive at a conversation with very different conversational patterns. But almost instantly they reach a common ground.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We tell rags-to-riches stories because we find something captivating in the idea of a lone hero battling overwhelming odds.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Lots of people drink when they are feeling down because they think it will chase their troubles away. That’s inhibition-thinking: alcohol will unlock my good mood. But that’s plainly not what happens. Sometimes alcohol cheers us up. But at other times, when an anxious person drinks they just get more anxious. Myopia theory has an answer to that puzzle: it depends on what the anxious, drunk person is doing.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “When Tom Gau and I sat across from each other in his office, then, we almost immediately fell into physical and conversational harmony. We were dancing. Even before he attempted to persuade me with his words, he had forged a bond with me with his movements and his speech.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I’m totally engaging in cultural stereotyping, no question about it. But I think it’s OK because I’m doing it for a reason, for a good reason.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We form our impression not globally, by placing ourselves in the broadest possible context, but locally, by comparing ourselves to people in the same boat as ourselves.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “You have to explain the invention to customers – not once or twice but three or four times, with a different twist each time. You have to show them exactly how it works and why it works, and make them follow your hands as you chop liver with it, and then tell them precisely how it fits into their routine, and, finally, sell them on the paradoxical fact that, revolutionary as the gadget is, it’s not at all hard to use.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “What happens when two people talk? That is really the basic question here, because, that’s the basic context in which all persuasion takes place.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We are trained to think that what goes into any transaction or relationship or system must be directly related, in intensity and dimension, to what comes out.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Gottman has found, in fact, that the presence of contempt in a marriage can even predict such things as how many colds a husband or a wife gets; in other words, having someone you love express contempt toward you is so stressful that it begins to affect the functioning of your immune system.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “An aggressive drug-testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but its never going to catch everyone – or even close to everyone.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It’s the rich who get the biggest tax breaks. It’s the best students who get the best teaching and most attention. And.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Eric Hanushek, an economist at Stanford, estimates that the students of a very bad teacher will learn, on average, half a year’s worth of material in one school year. The students in the class of a very good teacher will learn a year and a half’s worth of material. That difference amounts to a year’s worth of learning in a single year. Teacher effects dwarf school effects: your child is actually better off in a bad school with an excellent teacher than in an excellent school with a bad teacher.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Respect for others requires a complicated calculation in which one party agrees to moderate their own desires, to consider the longer-term consequences of their own behavior, to think about something other than the thing right in front of them.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We start by believing. And we stop believing only when our doubts and misgivings rise to the point where we can no longer explain them away.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I should point out that I have a picture of Asbel Kiprop as the screensaver on my phone. Is that embarrassing?”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “If you play an audiotape of a yawn to blind people, they’ll yawn too.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “What Heinz had done was come up with a condiment that pushed all five of these primal buttons. The taste of Heinz’s ketchup began at the tip of the tongue, where our receptors for sweet and salty first appear, moved along the sides, where sour notes seem the strongest, then hit the back of the tongue, for umami and bitter, in one long crescendo.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Minor, seemingly insignificant quality-of-life crimes, they said, were Tipping Points for violent crime.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “In a country that never wins anything: in Canada, if one of our athletes so much as makes the final in a World Championship, we declare a national holiday.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It’s just strange to think that so much of our enjoyment from sports comes from the elevation of arbitrary differences.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “One of the main reasons college professors accept a lower paycheck than they could get in private industry is that university life gives them the freedom to do what they want to do and what they feel is right. Langan has Harvard backwards.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Does that mean we should give up? Probably. But there are two issues worth considering. The first is – is it really true that drugs destroy the integrity of the game?”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “A man employs the full power of the state in his grief and ends up plunging his government into a fruitless and costly experiment. A woman who walks away from the promise of power finds the strength to forgive – and saves her friendship, her marriage, and her sanity. The world is turned upside down. – Chapter 8.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It’s a lot like what people do when they are in psychoanalysis: they spend years analyzing their unconscious with the help of a trained therapist until they begin to get a sense of how their mind works. Heylmun and Civille have done the same thing – only they haven’t psychoanalyzed their feelings; they’ve psychoanalyzed their feelings for mayonnaise and Oreo cookies.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Sometimes the most modest changes can bring about enormous effects.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I became convinced that knowing lots of people was kind of skill, something that the diligent can overcome.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “A woman who walks away from the promise of power finds the strength to forgive – and saves her friendship, her marriage, and her sanity. The world is turned upside down.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The results from these experiments are, obviously, quite disturbing. They suggest that what we think of as free will is largely an illusion: much of the time, we are simply operating on automatic pilot, and the way we think and act – and how well we think and act on the spur of the moment – are a lot more susceptible to outside influences than we realize. But.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “People don’t rise from nothing. We do owe something to parentage and patronage. The people who stand before kings may look like they did it all by themselves. But in fact they are invariably the beneficiaries of hidden advantages and extraordinary opportunities and cultural legacies that allow them to learn and work hard and make sense of the world in ways others cannot.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Instead of thinking about talent as something that you acquire, talent should be thought of as something that you develop.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “If you paid careful attention to the structure and format of your material, you could dramatically enhance stickiness.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It changes how people read you if you believe in God. It gives insight into your motivation, how you look at problems and how you deal with people.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “What track needs to figure out: how to engage us between the races. Instead, the entire off-the-track conversation is about doping. This is how you kill a sport.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We’re friends with the people we do things with as much as we are with the people we resemble. We don’t seek out friend, in other words. We associate with the people who occupy the same small physical spaces that we do.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “A vervet, in other words, is very good at processing certain kinds of vervetish information, but not so good at processing other kinds of information.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “All of us, when it comes to personality, naturally think in terms of absolutes: that a person is a certain way or is not a certain way. But what Zimbardo and Hartshorne and May are suggesting is that this is a mistake, that when we think only in terms of inherent traits and forget the role of situations, we’re deceiving ourselves about the real causes of human behavior.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Whenever we have something that we are good at – something we care about – that experience and passion fundamentally change the nature of our first impressions.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “There’s no idea that can’t be explained to a thoughtful 14-year-old. If the thoughtful 14-year-old doesn’t get it, it is your fault, not the 14-year-old’s.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The people who were right about Hitler were those who knew the least about him personally. The people who were wrong about Hitler were the ones who had talked with him for hours.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “People are ruined by challenged economic lives. But they’re ruined by wealth as well because they lose their ambition and they lose their pride and they lose their sense of self-worth. It’s difficult at both ends of the spectrum. There’s some place in the middle which probably works best of all.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “You’ve got to let people work out the situation and work out what’s happening. The danger in calling is that they’ll tell you anything to get you off their backs, and if you act on that and take it at face value, you could make a mistake. Plus you are diverting them. Now they are looking upward instead of downward. You’re preventing them from resolving the situation.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Those who are successful at creating social epidemics do not just do what they think is right. They deliberately test their intuitions.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “These people who link us up with the world, who bridge Omaha and Sharon, who introduce us to our social circles – these people on whom we rely more heavily than we realize – are Connectors, people with a special gift for bringing the world together.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “A prediction, in a field where prediction is not possible, is no more than a prejudice.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “A Connector might tell ten friends where to stay in Los Angeles, and half of them might take his advice. A Maven might tell five people where to stay in Los Angeles but make the case for the hotel so emphatically that all of them would take his advice. These are different personalities at work, acting for different reasons. But they both have the power to spark word-of-mouth epidemics.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “That’s not because journalists know more about Japan. It’s because they knew less: they had the ability to sort through what they knew and find a pattern.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “My social circle is, in reality, not a circle. It is a pyramid. And at the top of the pyramid is a single person – Jacob – who is responsible for an overwhelming majority of the relationships that constitute my life.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I worry that track is going to enter into an impossibly complicated stage, where our understanding of the complexities of human physiology – and our ability to accentuate and exploit them – is going to make the notion of pure competition impossible.”
