Awkward AUTHOR Ty TashiIn the vein of uiet and The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth comes this illuminating look at what it means to be awkward and how the same traits that make us socially anxious and cause embarrassing faux pas also provide the seeds for extraordinary successAs humans we all need to belong While modern social life can make even the best of us feel gawky for roughly one in five of us navigating its challenges is consistently overwhelming an ongoing maze without an exit Often unable to grasp social cues or master the skills and grace necessary for smooth interaction we feel out of sync with th. 25 stars This was a uick and easy read with some interesting points but I don't think it really helped explain why we're socially awkward or how that's awesome Certainly as an awkward individual I felt no less awkward or in any way awesome Tashiro embraces the premise that awkward people are inherently intelligent or talented compared to social butterflies He only vaguely addresses the problem of the awkward person with average intellect and abilities as I wave awkwardly stating that such people likely have hidden or undiscovered talents That answer just feels like a cop out to eschew the uestion and maintain the view that awkward people are awkward because they're too busy being focusing on their genius to study social norms I'm not convinced

Review of AWKWARD The Science of Why We’re Socially Awkward and Why That’s Awesome written by Ty Tashiro PhD13 July 2017Stolzenbach HessenOriginal from New Ways to Join the Human Condition ClubI’ve never experienced this before It’s a great feeling to have Christmas shopping finished in mid July I’m going to purchase a copy of Dr Ty Tashiro’s new book AWKWARD for everyone who puts up with meTy is very kind to his reader and his Voice on the page is patient and wise While offering enviable real world insight Ty also cites his sources which are based on the latest neuroscience and psychology research 2017 The psychologist describes what it was like coming up awkward through grade school in the ‘80s with such precision I had to ask him about his handedness #truestory While everyone else in junior high was wearing black Metallica t shirts and bluejeans we the awkward took an overthought tack instead“My blanket philosophy that an adultlike approach would be my best bet led to a number of misguided tactical decisions When the first day of junior high school arrived I chose an outfit that included a starched baby blue oxford a crisp pair of pleated khaki pants and a pair of extra large suare silver glasses that looked like the bifocals my grandparents’ friends wore If I were a sixty year old accountant I would have looked dashing” Ty TashiroMy first day of seventh grade at Lassiter Middle School in Louisville after getting kicked out of a third Catholic school went down pretty much the same way I stood so brilliantly out of place Patrick Delkener swam across the packed lunchroom wearing ripped jeans and a black Megadeth shirt — he took me under his wing “Dude it’s so obvious you’re gay” he said uietly patting my shoulder “I know because my older sister is gay too It’s cool man just don’t tell anyone” Patrick protected me and – after a brief discussion on all the sex stuff I knew nothing about – we discovered that I was simply lefthandedTy often uses the stage and spotlight metaphor as a way to accurately describe how awkward people see the world while watching a play on stage socially intuitive people can see the whole production under stagelight; socially awkward people on the other hand have a spotlight focus on one part of the stage This means it takes an awkward person – upon entering a social event – time for their brain|eyes to react to the sceneLefthanded kids experience the same thing but I always described it as “reverse engineering” the situation seeing the end goal; evaluating the steps reuired to get there; execute After evaluating and testing hundreds or perhaps thousands of social interactions it is possible to develop social intuitionTy Tashiro has used his doctorate in psychology from the University of Minnesota in many capacities as researcher professor and practitioner His uniue interests skills and talents have landed him publication in the New York Times the Washington Post TIME and The Atlantic – he’s even given TEDNYC talks I welcome many of his mantras sinking into my skull be fair kind and loyal in all things; work to widen spotlight view to stagelight; recognize rage to master tendenciesBe fair kind and loyal in your friendships and social interactions I will repeat this to myself daily and be aware of the “rage to master” personality trait Ty attributes the rage to master theory to Professor Ellen Winner chair of the psychology department at Boston College and senior researcher at Harvard who claims that gifted people tend to exhibit a uniue ability at the sacrifice of something else ie smart but not socially adept“Technically giftedness is defined by someone’s level of ability their raw intelligence athleticism or artistic ability But Professor Winner and others have found that gifted individuals are also likely to have a certain type of personality Gifted people tend to be stubborn rebellious and perfectionistic They show an unusual drive to master their area of interest and they are constantly trying to push the status uo which motivates them to pursue their interest with an unusual intensity and persistence Winner calls this constellation of personality characteristics and attitudes the ‘rage to master’”I’m betting the folks who know me are currently nodding their heads I laughed out loud when I read this next bit b I’d recently experienced it at Spalding University’s writing residency “Even when talented people share the same areas of interest as their peers their rage to master can be off putting to others who want to have fun instead of rage When talented people cannot approach their interests with the intensity or pace they prefer you will sometimes hear them say ‘This person has no sense of urgency’” 😂🤣😂 my emphasisAWKWARD is an important text for the current era in which we live I have never witnessed and experienced the heightened mean spirited vibe that is currently permeating the United States It’s a lefthanded thing to be able to blend in just about anywhere but currently I’m at a loss as to what Chameleon color I should be in 2017 Until I figure it out I’m looking for ways to bring the rampant tribalism closer toward the center One way is following the lead of Tori Murden McClure author of A Pearl in the Storm who created the first Charter for Compassion charterforcompassionorg school in the US Spalding University; Ty Tashiro’s philosophy in AWKWARD is another way to bring us all closerIn this text Ty identifies – through both research and personal experience – a specialized group like leftys that may sometimes appear out of place and sound aggressive in person but always maintain the best possible intent He also provides guides for people like us interacting with the world and for the world interacting with people like us 😬I wrote to Professor Tashiro b I had to know if he was lefthanded supporting documentation for my creative thesis Sinistral Way and it turned out even better than expected “ I was interested to see your uestion because as I thought about it I was kind of surprised that I’m not lefthanded I’m not an expert in the psychological research on left handedness but from what I know the creativity and stubbornness to follow a different path which of course can be positive does seem to overlap with some of the dispositions that characterize many awkward people It’s interesting that compared to the base rate of left handedness in the general population 10–15% I seem to have a disproportionate number of friends who are left handed Hmmm so interesting”Ty found a way to include everyone and anyone in this specialized group I will endeavor to do the same in the book I’m working on Sinistral Way I can’t thank Ty enough for showing me a way to do that in AWKWARD and I have personally thanked him for writing this book it is a rare treasure Please purchase a few copies it will shed light on past awkward interactions better prepare you for future interactions and give you an edge in communicating with the highly skilled people who can bring your vision to fruition
