Why “Good Enough” is Better than “Best

Tankevækkende artikkel fra http://www.bnet.com/blog

Do these statements describe you?

“No matter what I do, I have the highest standards for myself.”

“I never settle.”

People who are very likely to agree with these and other similar statements are known as maximizers-they’re always looking for the best possible outcomes to a given situation. These are the folks who swing for the fences. People who disagree are known as satisficers. They’re happy with an outcome that is “good enough”–in other words, a base hit. The irony: New research shows that in situations where the outcome is particularly difficult to forsee, such as the movement of stock markets or the outcome of sports events, the person who tries for the base hit will do a better job of “seeing the future” than the one who swings for the fences.
