Best 2015 Articles
Today I am taking a look back at your favorite Superception articles of 2015 and mine.
2015 was an exceptional year for Superception as I published my 2,000th article on this site.
Here are your five favorite articles (measured by how many visits each received):
- Attitude Is More Important Than IQ In Determining Success. People’s core attitudes fall into one of two categories: A fixed mindset or a growth mindset (September 27).
- Ad Blocking Is Piracy. First, the digital industry explained to content producers and distributors that they had to offer their products for free on the web and monetize them through advertising. Now, it also wants to suppress this revenue stream. This is absurd from both a business and moral standpoint (June 14).
- How To Accept That “To Err Is Human”? Professional tennis provides the answer (September 6).
- Learn Or Adjourn. Learn, grow, challenge oneself, face one’s fears. Or wait for death while eternally resting on one’s laurels, assumed certainties, and illusions (March 1).
- The Management Lesson Of Mark Zuckerberg And Sheryl Sandberg. We knew that trust is earned. Sandberg and Zuckerberg show us that it can be learnt (July 5).
And mine (by chronological order):
- Ego Or Ambition: Choose Your Muse. Ego fuels a sense of self-aggrandizement, ambition gives a sense of purpose (February 15).
- The Disposability Of Communicators Demonstrates Their Importance. Chief communicators who are laid off when a new CEO is appointed should thank the latter for recognizing, albeit implicitly and painfully, the influence of their profession (February 22).
- Having High Expectations For Your Employees Is A Triple Sign Of Respect For Them. A team’s solidarity should stem from its performance. Individual and collective achievements, rather than artificial safeguards and entitlements, ensure the future of a team (May 17).
- “Community” Is The Most Beautiful Word In The Human Language. The human being is a social animal: Individuals exist in their relationship with others (August 16).
- Journalism And The Disinformation Society. The level of political lying in some democratic societies is reaching a point that we thought – and hoped – would always be the apanage of authoritarian and totalitarian regimes. The paradox is that the media is more open and free than ever, which should, in theory, secure the prevalence of truth (December 27).

After another year of Superception activity, I take this opportunity to thank all those who follow my reflexive wanderings.
