4. Big Data Analysis Research Project: Part 2

When we try to understand the social trends and collective behavior of people, the best approach is to work with data. The Shadowmatch team is very fortunate as we have access to big data sets for research purposes. In fact, too much data can also be a challenge because it becomes difficult to decide where to look. What we’ve done is to draw all the statistical trends and averages on all the habits of 10 000 randomly and anonymously selected individuals.

In our previous newsletter we shared two aspects of the trends we saw. We discussed the two softest habits in society, Propensity to Hand-off and Individual Inclination. If you missed the first part to this series, please click here to read our August Newsletter.

In this newsletter we will discuss the strongest habit in society: Conflict Handling. Keep in mind that we learn habits as a result of behavioral repetition. As a society, the behavior that we repeated most as a habitual learning pattern, is Conflict Handling, and it became our strongest collective habit.

The question is why do we repeat this behavior with such a high level of repetition and intensity? Because we live in a society where there is so much conflict that we have to learn the habit of living with it and dealing with it. It became a social survival habit. In short. The fact that we have learned the habit of Conflict Handling as a collective strongest habit is a symptom that we live in a conflict-saturated society where this habit is important for social survival.
