This week’s must-reads: Why Imagination is Crucial in Creating New Opportunities

In my work as a behavioral designer, I come across important stories on how psychology influences our behavior. Every week, I share my round-up of the most important stories at the intersection of psychology, technology and business. I hope you enjoy them!

Why You Don’t Have to Be a Rocket Scientist to Think Like One (NirandFar) We often assume that thinking like a rocket scientist is beyond the ability of mere mortals without a special kind of genius but that is a wrong assumption.

The Coming Mental Health Crisis As Remote Working Surges (Ozy) Data on the mental health toll of those who work at home versus those who work in offices is still scanty.

What leader are you? It depends on your parents (BBC) If your parents were shrinking violets, the odds are increased that you will be too. But that’s far from the whole story.

We Need Imagination Now More Than Ever (Harvard Business Review) Imagination is the crucial factor in seizing and creating new opportunities, and finding new paths to growth.

The War on Coronavirus Is Also a War on Paperwork (Forbes) To help medical works and others, government has to keep lowering bureaucratic obstacles.

The Retention Effect of Training (Science Daily) Company training increases the loyalty of its employees. Loyalty also increases if the training improves the employees’ chances on the labor market.

Happy reading!
