She didn’t like the fact that the company didn’t assign seats; she didn’t like the absence of a first-class section; she didn’t like not having a meal in flight; she didn’t like Southwest’s boarding procedure; she didn’t like the flight attendants’ sporty uniforms and the casual atmosphere.
Her last letter, reciting a litany of complaints, momentarily stumped Southwest’s customer relations people.
The Dunning-Kruger research hypothesizes that the competent overestimate others’ skill levels.
But the error is more complicated for the their self-assessment scores as they became better evaluators of their own limitations.
It would require rape victims seeking abortions to report to a police station and have their bodies examined, and it could limit access to the morning-after pill.
People who give women advice on how to obtain abortions could be jailed.
We propose to develop invitational collaboration, a feminist model of international/interdisciplinary collaboration, and suggest that increased integration of interests and concerns across disciplines (along with more global networking) is made easier with the assistance of new collaboration technologies.
We are envisioning more sustained interdisciplinary and collaborative work, along with deeper understandings of individuals, cultures, and social change.
Studies of healthy and unhealthy behaviors are handicapped when they rely on self-reporting because test subjects tend to improve their evaluation.Has it ever seemed to you that less competent people rate their competence higher than it actually is, while more competent people humbly rate theirs lower? This is a genuine cognitive bias called the Dunning-Kruger Effect.The Dunning-Kruger experiments behind the research focused on cognitive tasks (logic, grammar, and evaluating humor), but similar disparities exist in other areas.Roughly a fifth of Brazilian women will have an abortion by age 40—either by paying exorbitant fees to secret clinics, ordering abortifacient pills, or traveling to Uruguay.If caught, they can be criminally tried, though in practice few such women are jailed.They bumped it up to Herb’s [Kelleher, CEO of Southwest] desk, with a note: ‘This one’s yours.’ In sixty seconds, Kelleher wrote back and said, ‘Dear Mrs. Love, Herb.'” Gordon Bethune is a brash Texan (as is Herb Kelleher, coincidentally) who is best known for turning Continental Airlines around “From Worst to First,” a story told in his book of the same title from 1998.He wanted to make sure that both customers and employees liked the way Continental treated them, so he made it very clear that the maxim “the customer is always right” didn’t hold sway at Continental. If they think that you won’t support them when a customer is out of line, even the smallest problem can cause resentment.Abstract For feminists, working collaboratively across differences has been a critical process for much of our work.Now, given our awareness of enormous changes, instability, challenges and possibilities in global politics as well as in available collaboration technologies, feminists in communication studies can better work together with researchers in other fields to develop new forms and forums of knowledge-making, creativity, and problem solving.Through the past decades, scholars and activists from many disciplines, geographical areas, and concerns have contributed to the vibrant language and gender research field.However, while the theories, questions, and methods used in one discipline sometimes act as prompts for additional research in another, there are relatively few dialogues and collaborations on language and gender studies across the disciplines.
