If I haven’t already, this 1996 study deserves to be added to the Diversity + Proximity = War reference list at the top of this blog’s home page. Executive summary: Demographically (i.e., racially and ethnically) diverse workplaces have lower cohesion, lower satisfaction, and higher turnover.
…high diversity prevents social integration and cohesion from forming on the team. In their absence, team members are unable to effectively process information…
…Group cohesiveness is positively related to performance. Three meta-analyses and several empirical studies found a slight to moderate positive relationship between cohesiveness and performance. This is a robust finding in an area that has long been studied…
…separated conflict into two types: relationship conflict (interpersonal incompatibilities, tension, animosity, and annoyance) and task conflict (disagreement among group members about task content)…Relationship conflict was detrimental to satisfaction and to members’ intent to remain in the group regardless of the type of task…
…The most consistent findings occurred when tenure predicted strategic persistence and change, and when demographic heterogeneity predicted turnover….there’s a direct relationship between diversity and turnover, in that similarities attract and those dissimilar may be 40 pressured to leave the team…
Diversity is not our organizational strength. At best, diversity is our neutral organizational variable; at worst, diversity is our disorder.
So why do our overlords foist it on us?
Because our cooperative homogeneity is our strength…and their vulnerability.
Commenter westray exposes the fundamental contradiction at the heart of modren anti-White leftism:
“Diversity Is Our Strength” right next to “All Races Are Equal” placards at any given lefty rally. And no lefty can see the self-cancellation. You could walk a 3 year old boy through that and he’d have a more clear understanding.
“These people are different, right?”
“So are they the same if they are different?”
“If they are different will they do things the same way?”
“If they are different will they do things differently?”
“If people do things differently will there be different results?”
If Orwell were alive today, would he have spent the last years of his life saying “I told you so” over and over to whomever was listening?
