Hidden Failures: Why We Don’t Share Negative Information and What We Might Miss
In her Research Talk Ayelet Fishbach, University of Chicago (US) will talk about „Hidden Failures: Why We Don’t Share Negative Information and What We Might Miss"
We live in a society that celebrates failure as a teachable moment. Yet, failure would undermine learning if people ignore it — if in response to failure, people stop paying attention. Our research documents that people indeed fail to learn from failure and further do not share information on failure with others, even when knowing how to avoid failure is critical for success. We explore the conditions under which the information in failure is superior and develop interventions to increase learning from negative outcomes.
