Can you notice anything in your life that’s a zero-sum game?
What about non-zero-sum games? Maybe from personal relationships or high performance work teams?
It’s worth being aware that we have a tendency to be somewhat biased in our assessment! So watch out for Zero-Sum Thinking:
A general belief system about the antagonistic nature of social relations, […] based on the implicit assumption that a finite amount of goods exists in the world, in which one person’s winning makes others the losers, and vice versa […]
a relatively permanent and general conviction that social relations are like a zero-sum game. People who share this conviction believe that success, especially economic success, is possible only at the expense of other people’s failures.
