AI and Seeing the Good in Others
James OMeara, Professor, United States

As I look at the reactions to the comments, I'm struck by the ratio of thumbs up to thumbs down. Is this common in an AI community?

Seeing What's Good in Contributions by Others
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
Thank you for your nice remark, James. I think it is indeed common for an AI community to stimulate each other by giving 'thumbs up'.
It as in fact one of the 5 principles of Cooperrider (see our summary of appreciative inquiry: #5. Positive Principle).
So yes, it is typical for an AI community.
On the other hand, one may also argue lots of positive votes are typical for any high-quality, intelligent community, as you can easily witness yourself by looking at any of the other 5000 SIGs we host. Almost all of them have more positive votes than negative ones...
Finally you have to consider that in the case of 12manage we are a moderated platform, which means we actively guard the quality of all contributions, including shortening the ones that are too lengthy, clarifying ones that are not formulated well, and even removing poor ones.

Dear James, I second what Jaap is saying. Apparently subconsciously people focusing on AI built on the work/studies of people like Sarah Lewis, Losada and Frederickson, who all demonstrate the power of positive emotions, like the thumbs up. Your sincerely, Joep C. de Jong.
