Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Messing with your mindHere's a question for you:
Do you plan to do some O' technique training this week?
I'm reading Nudge. I picked up the paperback to read on the flight to Orlando. The question is inspired by something I read in Nudge.
The authors describe some research on whether measuring intent changes behavior. The research found, for example, that asking people "do you intend to buy a new car in the next 6 months" changed people's behavior. They became more likely to buy a new car.
I can't say I'm surprised by the research. As a performance auditor I've seen the same thing. Asking quesitons and measuring performance changes how people behave (sometimes that is a good thing, sometimes not).
If you do some O' technique training this week. Maybe it is because I asked you.

Oops, didn't do any O technique training this week. Does it matter that I didn't read your post until today? :-)Post a Comment
I probably wouldn't have done technique training this week, anyway; I usually don't do any.
