    Did I mention how much I like his writing? Panicking and choking - what are they, what is the difference between the two, why do they occur, with well picked study cases

    1- only those who care about how well they perform ever feel the pressure of stereotype threat. The usual prescription for failure—to work harder and take the test more seriously—would only make their problems worse. 2- That performance ought to improve with experience, and that pressure is an obstacle that the diligent can overcome. 3- If panicking is conventional failure, choking is paradoxical failure. 4- My favorite part was: When it was all over, Faldo wrapped his arms around Norman. “I don’t 1- only those who care about how well they perform ever feel the pressure of stereotype threat.

I’m so sorry.” With that, the two men began to cry.

    I see it from the perspective of the classic debate between internal locus of control and external locus of control. Both are real. Extreme postures are false. In the middle is the virtue.

    Read at: http://www.infosurvey.com.my/The%20Ar... I forget which book Gladwell talks about choking vs panicking, so most of this was familiar. But Gladwell is such an excellent writer I don’t mind rereading. “Human beings sometimes falter under pressure. Pilots crash and divers drown. Under the glare of competition, basketball players cannot find the basket and golfers cannot find the pin.

I forget which book Gladwell talks about choking vs panicking, so most of this was familiar. But Gladwell is such an excellent writer I don’t mind rereading. “Human beings sometimes falter under pressure. Pilots crash and divers drown. Under the glare of competition, basketball players cannot find the basket and golfers cannot find the pin. When that happens, we say variously that people have “panicked” or, to use the sports colloquialism, “choked.” But what do those words mean? Both are pejoratives. To choke or panic is considered to be as bad as to quit. But are all forms of failure equal? And what do the forms in which we fail say about who we are and how we think? We live in an age obsessed with success, with documenting the myriad ways by which talented people overcome challenges and obstacles. There is as much to be learned, though, from documenting the myriad ways in which talented people sometimes fail. “Choking” sounds like a vague and all-encompassing term, yet it describes a very specific kind of failure.” Love that he then talks about implicit and explicit learning; “These two learning systems are quite separate, based in different parts of the brain.” “Panic also causes what psychologists call perceptual narrowing.” It why we remind people on planes that exits may be behind them. “Panic, in this sense, is the opposite of choking. Choking is about thinking too much. Panic is about thinking too little. Choking is about loss of instinct. Panic is reversion to instinct. They may look the same, but they are worlds apart.” Yes! Stereotype threat is a type of ‘choking’. “sometimes a poor performance reflects not the innate ability of the performer but the complexion of the audience; and that sometimes a poor test score is the sign not of a poor student but of a good one.”

    Gladwell has an amazing talent for telling stories so well. I can never get the same kind of flow with any other author. A master of his craft can always make any little thing interesting. In this short article about panicking and "choking", Gladwell goes over the differences between the two and uses some well-picked case studies to illustrate "The Art of Failure". A great read!

    It’s not a book but instead an article in the New Yorker magazine. It was suggested as a title from a podcast I listened to.
