Terri's Law

Post by terri » Sat May 14, 2005 6:12 pm

TERRI’S LAW OF GROUP INTELLIGENCE AND COMMITTEE BEHAVIOR:<p>"THE RECIPROCAL OF TOTAL GROUP INTELLIGENCE IS EQUAL TO THE SUM OF THE RECIPROCALS OF THE INTELLIGENCES OF EACH INDIVIDUAL MEMBER OF THE
GROUP":<p>
1/I1 + 1/I2 + 1/I3 + 1/In = 1/It<p>For two individuals (n = 2) of intelligence 1 and intelligence 2, total intelligence is:<p>(I1 X I2) / (I1 + I2) = It<p>Or the product over the sum. Note that this law has several corollaries:<p>1. THE TOTAL GROUP INTELLIGENCE CAN NOT BE GREATER THAN THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE LEAST INTELLIGENT MEMBER.<p>2. ADDITION OF A MEMBER TO THE GROUP REDUCES THE TOTAL INTELLIGENCE, REGARDLESS OF THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE ADDED INDIVIDUAL.<p>3. AS THE GROUP BECOMES VERY LARGE, INTELLIGENCE APPROACHES ZERO.<p>This is because each additional individual provides still another path for stupidity to flow.<p>[ May 14, 2005: Message edited by: terri ]</p>

Everything from arrogance to myopia can blind the brightest of minds, including the impatience of youth.
