“The hardest part of learning something new is not embracing new ideas, but letting go of old ones.”
Todd Rose, The End of Average: How We Succeed in a World That Values Sameness

“Most of us know intuitively that a score on a personality test, a rank on a standardized assessment, a grade point average, or a rating on a performance review doesn’t reflect your, or your child’s, or your students’, or your employees’ abilities. Yet the concept of average as a yardstick for measuring individuals has been so thoroughly ingrained in our minds that we rarely question it seriously.”
Todd Rose, The End of Average: How We Succeed in a World That Values Sameness

“Our modern conception of the average person is not a mathematical truth but a human invention, created a century and a half ago by two European scientists to solve the social problems of their era.”
