The importance of documenting processes and procedures shows up much when firms scale. They need many employees to work as one in a consistent way. Yet, it doesn’t show up much for one employee who has done a job hundreds of times. Small firms and units are prime culprits. How does this help that employee . . . outside of pleasing the bosses?

The scientific method is a process. As with any process, people corrupt it over time. That's happening now. Money, prestige, secrecy and incompetence are causing it. Yet, pointing this out causes hostile blowback from many experts. What’s the secret behind all of this influencing research results?

As long as one takes some simple precautions and never hint at not telling the truth on personality tests, it's almost impossible to get caught. That makes passing these tests very doable.

When people see themselves in us, it's easier to influence them. It's much harder if they see us as very unlike them. Talking like they do is a very powerful reflecting tool. Most times people don't notice if done reasonably well. Other times, they often just see it as a compliment or a sign of respect.

What is the difference between innovation and creativity in business? Often people cite commercial viability. Innovation sells. Creativity doesn't. Does this really make them different though? What does it mean for business?

Knowing why people like dislikable people improves decision making and problem solving. People give many reasons for liking people. The main reason though has nothing to do with reasons.

This ad targets the three main emotional triggers. Just as people can’t live without air, food and water, they can’t live without fulfilling at least one of three emotional needs. Otherwise, any number of physical and mental ailments could result. Advertisers know this. Almost every single ad pulls at least one of these triggers. This WSJ ad pulls all three.
