Remember the concept of 6 degrees of separation? Every one is connected to everyone else by just 6 degrees of separation. Well, don’t feel unsuccessful if it takes you longer.
In 1967, Yale professor Stanley Milgram identified the concept. But it turns out the research was somewhat flawed – and corrected by Judith Kleinfeld, University of Alaska, in 2002. The truth: Milgram’s original research participants were “particularly sociable,” hence it was easier for them to “do it.” They actually only did it 30% of the time. And, it wasn’t 6 degrees of separation but rather 9. This reality check comes from one of those calendars with notes on the days.
