How adaptable are you to changing conditions? Adapting to changing conditions isn’t easy. Just ask the proverbial frog in the simmering pot who is boiled to death.
Surely that kind of mindless behavior – that kind of comfort with conformity without relevant rationale – can’t happen in the real world, can it? Let’s check the history books.
Consider the soldiers in World War I who were consistently too slow in firing an old horse-drawn cannon even though they both testified they were conducting the firing with the standard protocol. And they were. Habitually.
But now the horses were no longer pulling the cannon yet the two soldiers still stepped back and stood still for a few seconds as if they were holding the horses still before firing. Are you still holding your proverbial horses?
