Money

Today, I learned about the psychological consequences of money during the keynote presentation by Robert Sutton at Agile 2012. In summary, if you are posting pictures of money symbols or displaying Monopoly notes in a room where you ask people to collaborate, they will have a tendency to be more self-centered, selfish, and less willing to help others. This is the result of the work by Kathleen Vohs who published a paper on the topic. Photo by images_of_Money
