Editor’s Introduction to Vol.3.1 Summer 2014
Always a pleasure to hear from my Professor and see what the alumni is up to, some great articles focusing on Business Psychology. The transactional analysis caught my attention, but the journal covers a wide range of topics that should be beneficial for all.
“Carnevale and Probst (1998) showed in their study that individuals who expected cooperation achieved better results in the tasks they performed. They had a broader range of attention and formulated better solutions (Fredrickson, 2004), whereas the thinking of the individuals who anticipated conflict was limited and rigid (Le Doux, 1998; Panskepp, 2005; Kahneman, 2012). Being altruistic means striving to do the right thing for ourselves and for others (De Young, 2000). It also means being thoughtful about our consumption and making more constructive choices which is only going to be possible if we can transcend our automatic tendencies.”
We particularly want to hear from you if you have ideas for future articles.
Our next publication will be in November 2014.
