Outliers part 7

However, they turned themselves around and were eventually able to rebound into success. The plane has had to divert several times from its planned landing and is running dangerously low on fuel. As with the predictors of success, unseen easily overlooked factors can make a big difference.

Outliers: The Story of Success Questions and Answers

When more than one sample is taken into consideration, the probability of one or more samples falling in the specified region increases since any sample can fall into the "forbidden zone" independently of the other samples.

Recall the earlier discussion of thresholds in Chapter 3. The pilots could participate in a different cultural legacy, at least when they were in the cockpit. We have discussed this effect previously see chapter 1 in reference 2.

Barnett and colleagues 3 present some of the simpler outlier tests that have been developed over the years, and point us to sources of corresponding threshold values for the statistics calculated by the various tests T represents the test statistic that will be used for comparison with a threshold [critical value].

This failure of communication caused the plane crash. Gladwell claims that greatness requires enormous time, using the source of the Beatles' musical talents and Gates' computer savvy as examples.

Gladwell outlines some of the things that helped them succeed. For values that are uniformly distributed, one test uses the following test statistic: Then several possible alternate ways of comparing the last data point, which is presumably the suspected outlier, are proposed.

The next point to consider is how to detect an outlier, in the face of the inherent fuzziness of the concept. The weather was bad, but not too bad.

The distribution appears normal to the eye albeit slightly asymmetric, to be sure. It sounds a little trite, but there's a powerful amount of truth in that, I think.

Outliers: The Story of Success Chapter 7 Summary

He also notes that he himself took exactly 10 years to meet the 10,Hour Rule, during his brief tenure at The American Spectator and his more recent job at The Washington Post.

In these cases, the differences between the tests is not in the test statistic itself, but in the values corresponding to different critical threshold values of the test.

He notes that when the first officer makes comments about the weather, he is trying to tell the captain that the weather conditions are dangerous.

Because children born earlier in the year are statistically larger and more physically mature than their younger competitors, and they are often identified as better athletes, this leads to extra coaching and a higher likelihood of being selected for elite hockey leagues. The test cited by Pierce, for example, could be useful if all of several conditions apply: By their nature, these tests are tests of the extreme samples.

Suren Ratwatte is a veteran pilot who has studied aircraft disasters. The plane was full of fuel, and therefore too heavy to land in normal conditions. Sincethey have a perfect safety record. Gladwell tells the story of a small town in Kentucky in the s.

How to Write a Summary of an Article. It is now as safe as any airline in the world. The plane runs out of fuel and crashes shortly after this final communication to ATC. This success came about because he stayed calm, communicated himself clearly, and listened to what his inferiors and peers were telling him.

To explain, Gladwell uses the crash of Colombian airliner Avianca, Flight The Ethnic Theory of Plane Crashes.

Outliers: The Story of Success - Part 2, Chapter 6, Harlan, Kentucky Summary & Analysis

Lee discussed the strategic timing of King's ascent from a "Gladwellian" perspective, citing Outliers as the inspiration for his argument. This played a significant role in explaining why Klotz did not stand up to his pilot and more effectively communicate to him the danger they were in.

The flight engineer suggests that the captain pull up and try again. Alarms begin to go off as they get closer and closer to the ground. America has a low power-distance ratio; as a result, the New York City air-traffic controllers are often pushy and rude, which intimidated the submissive Klotz; this also led to his unclear communication of the emergency.

Using an anecdote to illustrate his claim, he discusses the story of Christopher Langana man who ended up owning a horse farm in rural Missouri despite having an IQ of Gladwell claims that Einstein 's was It became clear that one way of stopping plane crashes might be to reduce the power-distance in the cockpit.

Definition of outliers An outlier is an observation that lies an abnormal distance from other values in a random sample from a population.

In a sense, this definition leaves it up to the analyst (or a consensus process) to decide what will be considered abnormal. Before abnormal observations can be.

Chapter 7 is called "The Ethnic Theory of Plane Crashes." Gladwell describes the terrible crash of Korean Airlines Flight inwhen the plane flies into a hillside while landing on the island of Guam. Transcript of Outliers Chapter 7 The purpose of this chapter is for Gladwell to present the argument of how the concept of something so small as cultural differences can lead to detrimental disasters such as plane crashes, and the deaths of hundreds.
