I started this blog just about a year ago with the post, Interesting Times. It has been an interesting year, to be sure, and sure enough, times are interesting again. As I like to say, it’s the same, only more so. Today on the Ipswitch Blog, I wrote about Phil Rosenzweig’s book, The Halo Effect, which discusses how people often mis-attribute success to the highly visible actions of highly visible (but rare) successes. It’s a combination of selection bias, hero worship, and the impressively-named Fundamental Attribution Error.
