Minter Dialogue with Ian MacRae
Ian MacRae is a work psychologist and psychometrician, author of six books, including the recent award-winning, “Dark Social, Understanding the darker side of work, personality and social media,” published by Bloomsbury Press. In this discussion, we explore some of the core concepts in his book, how social media shapes behaviors, defining one’s true self off- and online, self-responsibility, the difference between management by surveillance, oversight or for performance and the trickiness of hybrid work.
