The Wavy World

The Wavy World

Waves are everywhere. Our world is wavy. We are familiar with sound waves, water waves, spring waves, mathematical waves, stock markets waves, light waves, crowds making waves in football stadiums and now I report on words association waves. The idea of this buzz originated from the draft of this buzz to show a visual example of how to turn text into visuals. The text is based on the comments that @Harvey LloydΒ wrote on my last ten buzzes. Harvey is so generous in commenting that his pooled comments reached more than twenty pages and their chronological order allowed for deeper analysis.

Reading a Writers’ Mind from his content writings

What goes in the mind of a writer will be expressed in his writings. Written words mirror that reflects the inside the writer.

Text visualization is one way to read through a writers’ mind. I wish to share my findings here.

Pooling more than twenty pages of comments of Harvey produced the following results. I used Voyant Tools to analyze the comment. What words an author uses and their association are one mirror of seeing through a person. It seems that conflict and its resolution with a purpose is one area that interests Harvey. This is shown from the word cloud and word association in the figure below. Remember that comments are in their chronological order.


With the frequencies of above terms as follows:

In bubblelines, each selected word is represented as a bubble with the size of the bubble indicating the word’s frequency in the corresponding segment of text. The larger the bubble the more frequently the word occurs. Overlapping of bubbles happens with word association.

We can see visually when terms are used together

Β· The lines in the TermsRadio show the trends of the term frequencies for the visible documents. Even movement of words go in waves. The waves show the chronological order of words. We may also notice when the waves of two words reach their maximum frequency together.


Noticing that β€œwords waves” formation in the above image reminded me of life and that we move in waves. Not only us, buts words too. If you would observe the fantastic video below you see what I mean.

We may consider each ball on the pendulum as a β€œword Ball”. Uncoupled simple pendulums of increasing lengths dance together to produce visual traveling waves, standing waves, beating, and (seemingly) random motion. Some authors have their words dancing together to produce waves that move us. Even uncoupled words pendulum may move together to produce a wave that is like the waves observed in the video.

Notice in the video that when all pendulums are move with synchronicity better waves are created. We may produce waves in whatever form if we move items together. Examples include right brain and left brain, managers and leaders and marketing and sales.

Even coupled β€œassociated words” can do the same as is shown in the image below. I picture two associated words are linked together on the ends of a slinky spring and their movement goes in a wave. It is moving the two β€œword balls” vertically and in simultaneity that produces patterned wave. It is the absence of such synchronicity that lead to the continuing conflicts between the right brain and left brain, between leaders and managers and between sales and marketing staff. Just by replacing each the words A and B in the following image by right brain and left brain or managers and leaders reveal the need to resolve their conflict so that they may produce harmonious waves.

00fb6adb.jpg

Recent studies show that dancing electrons move in waves, markets move in waves, and marketing trends move in waves. I started this buzz writing about comments, but then I found myself immersed in waves. I shall share my thoughts about them in a forthcoming buzz.

In conclusion, our words create waves that reveal our consistency, uniformity and they could be our new fingerprints.

I dedicate this buzz to @Harvey Lloyd who is a continuous inspiration for me.

please don’t misunderstand the limbic response is a response method and does apply SOMETIMES. It should be in consideration But each response is sure to follow with one from the other. The choice of limbic will not garner a Christmas card. Be prepared Another saying was. Don’t let ur mouth write checks ur but can’t cash.

Again, this is sheer brilliance Harvey Lloyd. I consider your comment one of the best I have read over the last few years. I couldn't disagree with you. You remind me of the way I deal with angry people. I wrote about it before, but your comment urges me to share my experience here again. You wrote "I find it typically is better to allow them top run out of energy and come back to the purpose at hand". This is exactly my approach with angry people. Let me give first three analogies" 1- never add water to hot sulfuric acid; the opposite is valid. 2- never pour hot oil on cold water. The opposite is safer. 3- When a hot wave runs into a cold wave we have turbulent weather. In the three examples above we never add the hot (angry) person to a cool person. It is far better to let the angry person to vent out his anger till he cools down. Then we may add him to the discussions. You are a great thinker my friend.

Waves in water always take a natural path. To change that wave requires energy. Communication wave forms will also take a natural path. The larger question is should apply energy and where. Within a negative setting someone is using energy to sustain a wave outside its natural flow. I find it typically is better to allow them top run out of energy and come back to the purpose at hand. If i chase them and try and bring them back, with the best, well thought out plan, it only feeds the energy they have. You will notice with this technique a lull begins to form within the negative purveyance. To punch into this lull, you could state, I believe i understand your thoughts now, what would you propose we start with? Don't quantify, or validate previous negative statements but rather wait for them to unload the bucket. I went along with a friend who was a salesman to an international complaint on a product failure that would cost in the millions. We had discussed the hornets nest of various department who trying desperately not to catch the blame. He decided that the atmosphere would be volatile and that he would wait it out. I watched for almost an hour as various departments argued, positioned, my friend was silent. He was even asked why he was silent, he stated i am discovering your concerns. After this hour and everyone had emptied the bucket. He let the silence grow over the room to where it was deafening. They asked if he had any thing to say. He stood up and said now that we have exhausted all measures of who to blame. I am here to fix the problem. From that moment on the discussions went positive and the situation was resolved.

Just a reminder here in tension marketing we find that creating tension based on building on negative emotions such as fear has far more impact than tension based on creating desirability for a product. It is not a symmetrical situation.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#55
Thank you for your clarification and handsome response. I recall my equation" Performance = Ability X Desirability X Purpose So, the greater the purpose is, the greater the resulting performance shall be. I see your highlighting purpose worthy and to the point. If the purpose is to explore a great opportunity then listening should be more important than talking. Using our senses shall enhance our ability to explore. New ideas have already swept my mind.

All of the questions in discussion would be held up against your purpose. If the communications had a purpose of developing a long term relationship with a new customer, then you would ask those questions of that purpose. Upon asking them, i would think in a truly negative situation you would add different questions. If this customer is this way and we have just met how will they handle future customer service issues. Will we communicate, find lawyers or bury the issues until they explode out on the table? If you are trying to have a cold beer and some discussion you can guide to positive, walk away or sometimes i am in a sarcastic mode so i subtly begin building walls of subliminal messages around the negative speak that the person can bump into. Only to have some fun and see how long they will like a conversation that is herding them to a positive position. But again these are no risk settings where my purpose is not focused. If we are to be present in the moment, then we need to state, mentally what that purpose is. If we are with family but our purpose is thinking through issues at work, the family will know "you ain't here".

This comes back to purpose. All communications have purpose. This is and understanding of being present in the moment. If i am with my grandchildren then my purpose should match the setting. Purpose and risk go hand in hand. If my purpose is to secure a contract, relationship or something that is declared vital, then, risk rises as i engage with an individual who only wants to engage negatively. I may secure my purpose in the initial discussion but this person has displayed how each future negotiation will operate. Do i really care about winning in the first round, if each round will be a battle? I know i speak heavily of this word purpose, as your post demonstrates. Purpose can be benign or explorative. By declaring this up front we can now use executive function to keep the limbic system at bay. Sitting in a cabana exploring someone else's narrative can be engaging and fun, even if i am not in agreement. The purpose is to explore. I don't need agreement, i need understanding and engagement. In business yes, when i engage for the mutual benefit of someones need for my skill, purpose is front and center. If the need is negative and we cant get past that, then i know that subsequent discussions during the execution of my skill will meet with the same negative. I don't want it. It will create a customer service nightmare that the negative will be broadcast to other potential customers.

Valid question and yes we could take the thought or understanding all the way down to survival. But at survival we really only have a single choice. Join and defend. I am attempting to paint a picture that our own narrative aligns easier with feelings of negativity as this learning has emotional attachments. This is where executive function needs to rule the Limbic system. Just for a moment in time. When we hear negativity we should be able to create a neutral zone between limbic/executive and parse the information with purpose and direction. Maybe Bob is struggling in that area you described. As friends and leaders of the firm we should create an action plan to engage with Bob to help him. Or...Yea Bob really does suck doesn't he, why do we work with that BS. When i hear the latter i know one thing. When i am not in the conversation the same conversation are being had, about me. I am totally ok with letting the limbic drive and play out. But at that moment i also decided that i am willing to live with consequences. Here recently i am recognizing that folks allow the limbic play out and then they are all timid when the consequences play out. I was only being passionate, genuine or expressing myself. We have a saying that if you are pulling the gun, you better make the choice to pull the trigger. Because when i see it i will assume you have. (Metaphorically speaking here) Once either side allows the limbic to drive purpose is lost. It is survival.

Great thoughts and I ask you Harvey Lloyd a question based on your writing "If you are offering winning solutions for them and they continuously give negative feedback, you must ask a question. Is the individual wanting the same thing/objective as was originally thought/presented"? What would you say in such a case? Would you drop the communication? Would you initiate a different wave of communication? Would you drop a new approach so that the idea pebble would initiate a new wave?

Wow. I get it. As you say, 'Managing the waveform'. And that's actually a perfect term, Harvey! Funny, I was talking to a lady here who's business is all about crossing the language barrier between dialects Stateside (much less the OTHER languages), but I think you got it: people EXPECT differences; if you try and bridge them unsuccessfully, the results will be even worse. Most interesting!!

When you are on big projects crossing international boundaries, customer service issues were always tricky. At first i tried to understand different nuances in culture, geography etc.... Managing the waveform. What i realized through trial/error and observation was the dialogue tended to push folks back on their heals. This is not the place to start in customer service. Some home office folks would start with , Well the contract says...... BOOM. It sounded like a star wars episode after that statement. The funny thing is, i would always tell the home office, I am driving, you listen. or you drive i listen. If you speak i stop. They didn't like my methods. We always came to the contract but we read from two known positions and could seek resolution in win win. Glad those days are behind me. Small business is my thing and big business is a nightmare.

As long as you know where the beach is you can always get the waves going your way, riptide or not. Assume for the moment that we have two people, each needing something from the other, each has risk points. My tack is to figure out where the other person would like to be first. Through communication, listening and other methods we can ID where the sweet spot is for the other person. We now have two known positions. Mine because i new it before i started and now theirs through trial and error dialogue. The manipulative wave syndrome comes on when we try to move another to our own position before the two are known. Some are very used to this kinda communication. They don't feel like they win if they don't lose some sanity. In seeking the known we eliminate the wave consideration, they become natural. Most folks want to hear, judge act. I am not saying not to do these things but rather saying time will permit you to act in any of those categorize after you have two known position. I had a manager who always jumped at others when he heard certain key words. I took out a wooden token and wrote FU on it. Told him to stick it in his pocket. He could pull it out anytime, but asked that he hold it in his hand and listen. I have found in my years that seeking understanding is considered weak or even worse suborning support for the other side. When we support the goal or outcome and seek to plot the two positions, then we can argue, discuss or settle.

Ah-ha...clever, Harvey Lloyd! In your penultimate paragraph you address someone creating a riptide, if you will - at least mucking up your perfectly good wave pattern. I'm guessing they're going against the predicted flow. In business or corporate I can understand these eddies have to be stopped before they really muddy the waters (enough with the analogies). Surely this must be built into wave chart as a naturally-occurring chaos? What say you too, Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee?

This is a real aspect of leadership. If you are the leader then it must be because through assessment or ownership you are in the position. So a manager/team member who offers up negative statements about issues should be reason to investigate but not to develop predisposed positions. This situation has burnt me one to many times. Having engaged situations from someones given perspective, only to find out it was a personality clash that had nothing to do with professional performance. There is a show stopper though. When engaging with someone who is offering negative, off the cuff reviews......Merely ask if it would be OK to set up a meeting to discuss these issues with the person being labeled. As these observations would certainly impede the performance and we may be able to help. No one will cut you in on the gossip anymore.

"Because we are hard-wired to trust the 'truth' of the negative over the positive. " This knida smacked of importance. Why is it that we are more apt to believe something that is negative yet want to explore the positive before we commit? If i could weigh in an answer based on my match book degree gained here at beBee. I would postulate that our knowledge gained was not with out emotions being attached. A humbling experience was also attached with, maybe, fear, embarrassment and some others. Couple these with other life experiences and we have a narrative of knowledge that also brings forward emotions/feelings that were previously attached. A friend/coworker appears in you earshot and states that someone else is a buthead. Immediately your mind attempts to attach your own narrative of experience and brings forward you "buthead" experiences. But its not just the criteria of what makes a buthead but also includes your emotional experiences as well. So now, the mere mention and emotions of the communicator of buthead you can readily accept the negative due to your own past experience. Its quick, easy and also supports the individual assessment. If this same individual comes to you with, you know Betty is really doing a great job.....I have no real experience with Betty so would take the comment under advisement, maybe even inquire about the assessment.

#15 I am afraid that this question would be served by someone with some alphabet behind their name. Specifically within a social field of expertise. But as it concerns an individual and the thoughts of waves being continuous communications........... We can manipulate each wave in the hopes of changing a paradigm towards our favor. Whether we seek a sale, friend or outcome. However this leaves us with task of addressing the possible waves individually. Several issues arise with this technique. First the number of waves multiplied by any time between them becomes a mathematical equation that is beyond my skills. Determining the right thing to input within a given time frame is what defines the waves, length and separation. The other way to meet this objectives is to insure that you communicate in the language that the other wins. I already know what i want and what winning looks like. As the waves become more frequent and heavier maintaining this allows me to be able to address the unknown concerns, again as i know my own. Now i am not concerned with each wave as each wave takes care of itself. There is one caveat. If you engage with someone that prefers the argument over the outcome. If you are offering winning solutions for them and they continuously give negative feedback, you must ask a question. Is the individual wanting the same thing/objective as was originally thought/presented? A final note. If we can interpret the waves as communications over time and space then the waves, like light waves, should predict their origin. I should know you by the waves you put off.

See, Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, but he brings a good point; do we perceive ourselves as others do? My mind would race off with that one, so I'll reign it in. said: 'We must be careful of the shapes we form through our words.' So very true. To me, they are by far the most powerful tool in our arsenal of destructive force. Less so in our flower bed of encouragement and other delights! That in itself is curious; if I were your boss and praised you, the percentage you'd take to heart would be in direct proportions to how well you knew, trusted and liked me, no? You'd think it would work the same way if I berated you, but it doesn't. Why? Because we are hard-wired to trust the 'truth' of the negative over the positive. We can take that negative energy to internally hurt ourselves as well as the person who gave it to you. Inevitably, that will alter our views of each other.

This is a significant comment. Our PoV must adapt with the changes in the business environment. I recall that I wrote on Best Practices and those that were fit for yesterday might be unhealthy for today. Likewise; PoV they might not be as fit today as they were yesterday.

Our opportunity as leaders is to show the POV and seek understanding with the folks we show. We can not force folks to respect or seek understanding of a different POV. This is sad. I have had to let go of many people who had great talent but were unable to change their focus (POV) with our customers, teams and purpose. In changing markets we constantly require resets of our POV. What worked yesterday is not necessarily fit for today. We can evolve or we can judge those who are letting go of yesterday as stupid. If one can be successful at judging instead of understanding change. My hat is off to you. But it is a path of rabbit holes that i have never quite found anything but delirium.

Yes. The Disc is new to me only having spent a year or so with the paradigm. I am more versed in the Meyers-Briggs (MB), Dr. Jung's work. The main reason for more sidetrack in the study of character/personalities was due to the high level negotiations i was involved for so many years. I realized early on that my communications left footprints and reflection. Not something we can control but it is something we can manage. MB offered me a chance to alter my words, not beliefs, to help others hear what i was saying. Although i studied my own Dr. Jung suggested that it was more important to understand all the others and how they impact you, and you them. In this research, trail and error, i found that in many cases we were all looking at the same thing wanting similar results but didn't feel understood. Being an introvert thinker i naturally rub the big E;s the wrong way. I learned to speak the E language in accomplishing win win in conflict. But again why and purpose most be present as we use the tools of communication. Without these we will be labeled a manipulator. This is a label we can never seem to quite get rid of in our communications, once attached. The why and purpose of understanding personalities within leadership should be "visual", to use your great post term of the topic. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/to-have-and-to-hold Ian Weinberg has an excellent post that is a great companion to this discussion. My tie in for the post is that MB allows us to let go of our narrative as we see that all have one. Specifically how each narrative falls into some subtle categories.

Again, I am mesmerized by your comment Harvey Lloyd. I wish you were nearby to show you by evidence that I constructed a similar pendulum to the one in the video. I could see synchronicity if we move the balls at the same time. It we miss and not move them simultaneously different and rather chaotic waves. I have evidence for your writing "One would bet that had the author of the video changed the point of view we would have seen different concepts of chaos as it moved to synchronicity. This is what happens in reality. I shall make the two video and share the results with you. The leader may not be able to move all team members at the same time, but he/she may bring them back to synchronicity.

This is a surprising comment Harvey Lloyd. You know I also started studying our DISC profiles and their relationship to conflict resolution. I found also that the company which offers DISC profile also offer a training course on related DISC profiles to conflict resolution. As we have different profiles our approaches may differ.

So subtle your comment is that I don't know where to start Harvey Lloyd. The profoundness of your line "I found it interesting that the conflict/purpose words are over reaching concepts to the peripheral words of goals/team/service" is truly amazing. I could have added the analysis of what we call TextualArc to show the peripheral of a circle accommodating all your concepts in the comments. Now major and associated concepts would be drawn in such a way to show their impact and relationship with concepts. I might do this soon. But the results are in complete agreement with what you wrote. You have such a rich imagination to conclude this observation without having the visual image in front of your eyes. You wrote peripheral words and this is exactly what the TextualArc shows. I invite to read and comment on your comment for she also wrote about conflict in her comment below #5 . Conflicts have many roots. As I promised Fatima I am exploring this issue and now looking into conflicts as a wave. I shall share my thoughts as soon as they are ready. You know both of you and Fatima how to keep my mind busy.

The video of the pendulum was quite interesting. We saw basic equal force applied yet we saw the individual balls move in and out of recognizable patterns. The amazing point came at the end when it all seemed to come back where it started and begin the journey again. Newtons cradle is amazing and mesmerizing because we see a reflection of our narrative/experience. One would bet that had the author of the video changed the point of view we would have seen different concepts of chaos as it moved to synchronicity. Each perspective view would have been a different experience. To truly know that depending on where we stand (Service, Purpose, Team) we can execute differently, demonstrates that many aspects of conflict are based on POV, not personal review. The process of moving from chaos to synchronicity is a recognized process of leadership. This enables leaders to know that it will eventually find its wave form of success. Leaders also know the dependency of this lies within their ability to take desperate POV's and have them see diversity and not character. So much information from your taking the time to analyses a few words. Thank you Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

I have read and studied leadership most of my adult life. There is one very striking comment that i read in one of the books from some author. "The best compliment you can be paid, I know what Harvey would say." This implies that no matter what the situation someone who knows me can know exactly my position on the issue. This further implies that my heart, thoughts and purpose are known to those i come in contact. The data set, as studied to this point, reflects my beliefs in humanity. Sometimes conflict is associated with getting stuck as we drift apart from others within the conflict. Being able to (attempt to) take desperate positions and find common ground between resources is a skill/art. One i have not mastered and also a source of irritation at times. My motivation for this act is not purely selfless. I benefit from the team that endures conflict and emerges united.

This truly was a remarkable reflection of words. I was stunned at first with such deep analyses, would my words reflect what i truly meant with such scrutiny. I found it interesting that the conflict/purpose words are over reaching concepts to the peripheral words of goals/team/service. I don't know that if i was designing the analyses data set if i would have come to the same conclusion. I have enjoyed studying this readout if you will as it is somewhat telling. I don't necessarily "enjoy" conflict. But would say that conflict is our leadership adjusting to risk as we embark on change. The measure of leadership is not when the waves are synchronous but rather when they are in chaos. Leaders find the conflict that is causing the wave disruption and apply purpose, understanding and guidance. I have a business associate who is my opposite. Successful. He avoids conflict yet in avoidance he establishes natural conflict that he cant avoid. He responds with emotion. He has never learned the language of conflict observation, understanding or guidance. It works for him but is truly a chaotic journey of health issues. I am humbled that my comments are worthy of such deep review. Thank you for taking the time to assemble such a reflective aspect of my comments. I will be studying this for sometime.

Ah, good, profound words carry a soothing effect, filled with wisdom and wits, and they move brains to feel and hearts to think.

Thank you immensely for writing a splendid comment dear Tausif Mundrawala. In the buzz I mention the need to move our right brain and left brain so that they may produce a constructive wave. Your comment is a great example of what I mean. You explain the why solidly as well. By the way- my previous buzz hopefully addressed some of your previous comments.

I am so pleased to read your comments again . Believe me you are spot on when you write about yourself " I don't comment unless I have something of value to add". You have added tons of value to this buzz. I am stunned by your elaboration on conflict waves. I promise you to cover this in a buzz and dedicate it to you. Yes, we do create waves, but then how to tame them? You said it very well "Conflict resolution largely depends on one’s ability to communicate correctly. The right words give the right resolution or slow down the oscillation of the wave to an extreme that it may cut". You know that throwing two pebbles at the same time they produce reinforcing waves. Not doing so, would give waves not in synchronicity. This is exactly what bad words do. You refreshed my mind more than you may think dear Fatima.

Wow, what an intriguing buzz dear Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee "Our words create waves that reveal our consistency, uniformity and they could be our new fingerprints" and I can attest to the fact that your words have a profound impact on all of us at beBee. Harvey's comments are a must read in any buzz. And the comments of quite a few who actually take a lot of time and thought before penning those words down. And that's what makes our interactions special. I don't comment unless I have something of value to add. Words are like a hot burning liquid that form a solid shape when cooled/reflected in the minds of the ones reading them. We must be careful of the shapes we form through our words. I love how conflict resolution emerges from word waves. I would really love for you to elaborate on this through a detailed buzz. Conflict resolution largely depends on one’s ability to communicate correctly. The right words give the right resolution or slow down the oscillation of the wave to an extreme that it may cut. ( Your example "We may also notice when the waves of two words reach their maximum frequency together." fits perfect for this example) Avoiding disrespectful words and actions, we can resolve the conflicts faster. Improving one's verbal communication skills is a big pacifier between leaders and managers, sales and marketing staff and in a team as a whole. I've missed alot reading and interacting with you my dear Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I will catch up soon :)
