Why Everyone Should Sit at Round Tables

TRANSKRIP
Take a look at these two shapes.
One of them is seen as friendly and the other as unfriendly.
Which is which?
Most people think this shape is friendly
and this one is unfriendly.
These sorts of unconscious associations affect many aspects of your life.
For example research published in the Journal of consumer research
shows that when people are seated around a circular table they’re more likely to be friendlier
and so focused on collaborating and cooperating.
When they sit around a square or L-shaped table,
they’re more likely to be less empathic and so focused on being independent and challenging groupthink.
So next time you have a meeting,
choose an arrangement that matches your goals,
or change the seating during long meetings and benefit from both perspectives.

and this one is unfriendly.
dan bentuk ini tidak ramah.

These sorts of unconscious associations affect many aspects of your life.
Asosiasi tidak sadar semacam ini mempengaruhi banyak aspek dalam hidup anda.

For example research published in the Journal of consumer research shows that when people are seated around a circular table
Sebagai contoh, riset yang diterbitkan dalam Jurnal Riset Konsumen menunjukkan bahwa ketika orang-orang duduk di meja bundar,

they’re more likely to be friendlier and so focused on collaborating and cooperating.
mereka lebih cenderung untuk ramah dan fokus pada kolaborasi dan kerja sama.

When they sit around a square or L-shaped table,
Ketika mereka duduk mengelilingi meja persegi atau bentuk-L,

they’re more likely to be less empathic and so focused on being independent and challenging groupthink.
mereka cenderung untuk kurang empati dan fokus pada menjadi mandiri dan grup yang menantang.

So next time you have a meeting,
