when you actually drill down into the numbers you find an amazing fact no one is average which means that our society built for everyone is actually serving no oneIn the 1950s the American Air Force found itself with a massive problem performance in expensive custom made planes was suffering terribly with crashes peaking at seventeen in a single day Since the state of the art planes they were flying had been meticulously crafted to fit the average pilot pilot error was assumed to be at fault Until that is the Air Force investigated just how many of their pilots were actually average The shocking answer out of thousands of active duty pilots exactly zero were average Not one. tl dr individuals are worth than a single axis of valueThe basic premise is that the explosion of data collection in the late 19th century led to the concept of an average person which was great for elevating culture out of the pre industrial age but hurt the individual because no human being is average The proposed solution is to embrace that individual on their own terms using a multi dimensional match of their mix of skills against the mix of needs from industry The power of averagarianism and statistics was born from aggregate then analyze and came at a cost This proposal for individualism and dynamic systems works when you analyze then aggregate and carries its own cost I agree with the book in that your best self shouldn t be defined against a mythical sense of average and that it happens anyway Mediocre schools mediocre businesses and mediocre people are all going to insist that you be just like everybody else only better and in that context the single can learn fast measure of success a hallmark of averagarianism remains the best way to go along and get along That doesn t mean this is how it should be When you find those places and people who feed your best self while you do the same for them truly amazing things happen nb Learning to believe in this alternative paradigm with my current employer has been the hardest part of the job and one I wholly agree with even though it s taking me years to accept itThis idea that everybody is trying to be a suare peg to fit a suare hole is a basically flawed perception of how a person has to operate I think it reflects how the author sees society and the path he took to get where he is but to borrow an idea he covers within the book his path is not the path Being your best self doesn t reuire a complete rethinking of society just a willingness to redefine your measures of success The book lays a solid framework provides uality references for each of the points he makes and the history lesson is succinct and reasonable I liked how he drew the connection from physics to social theory for the averagarian and while he didn t call it out I know the same connection exists between newer physics and social theory for the individual The proposal for change is good with three excellent anecdotes that suggest it might be a broadly applicable pattern But moving from one dimensional measures of success to multi dimensional success can uickly blossom into infinitely subdividing each axis until you re left with a population of individuals that have no defining character When everybody is a special snowflake nobody is Awakening just how many of their pilots were actually average The shocking answer out of

I read this for a faculty discussion group at work I find I agree with Rose s observations on what isn t working than on his proposed solutions but it has generated some interesting directions of thinking I enjoyed ruminating on my jaggedness too many books not enough kissing from the average and thinking about the Gallup StrengthsFinder in the scope of this book He s not a huge fan of tests like Myers Briggs but then talks about strengths based job design and degree programs I m still thinking about where the line is between personality which he sees as situational and strengths wouldn t these also be situational but we have one discussion to go The Floating Bridge Nettles jaggedness too many books not enough kissing from the average and thinking about the Gallup StrengthsFinder in the scope of this book He s not a huge fan of tests like Myers Briggs but then talks about strengths based Revolutionary path job design and degree programs I m still thinking about where the line is between personality which he sees as situational and strengths wouldn t these also be situational but we have one discussion to go
