The Tipping Point:
How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
(ISBN 0-316-31696-2) is a book by Malcolm Gladwell, first published by Little Brown in 2000.
THREE TYPES OF PEOPLE
"The Law of the Few", or, as Gladwell states, "The success of any kind of social
epidemic is heavily dependent on the involvement of people with a particular and
rare set of social gifts."[3] According to Gladwell, economists call this the "80/20
Principle, which is the idea that in any situation roughly 80 percent of the 'work'
will be done by 20 percent of the participants."[4] (see Pareto Principle) These
people are described in the following ways:
Connectors are the people who "link us up with the world ... people with a special gift
for bringing the world together."[5] They are "a handful of people with a truly
extraordinary knack [... for] making friends and acquaintances".[6] He characterizes
these individuals as having social networks of over one hundred people. To illustrate,
Gladwell cites the following examples: the midnight ride of Paul Revere, Milgram's
experiments in the small world problem, the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" trivia game,
Dallas businessman Roger Horchow, and Chicagoan Lois Weisberg, a person who
understands the concept of the weak tie. Gladwell attributes the social success of
Connectors to "their ability to span many different worlds [... as] a function of
something intrinsic to their personality, some combination of curiosity, self-confidence,
sociability, and energy."[7]
Mavens are "information specialists", or "people we rely upon to connect us with new
information."[4] They accumulate knowledge, especially about the marketplace, and
know how to share it with others. Gladwell cites Mark Alpert as a prototypical Maven
who is "almost pathologically helpful", further adding, "he can't help himself".[8] In this
vein, Alpert himself concedes, "A Maven is someone who wants to solve other people's
problems, generally by solving his own".[8] According to Gladwell, Mavens start "word-
of-mouth epidemics"[9] due to their knowledge, social skills, and ability to communicate.
As Gladwell states, "Mavens are really information brokers, sharing and trading what
they know".[10]
Salesmen are "persuaders", charismatic people with powerful negotiation skills. They
tend to have an indefinable trait that goes beyond what they say, which makes others
want to agree with them. Gladwell's examples include California businessman Tom Gau
and news anchor Peter Jennings, and he cites several studies about the persuasive
implications of non-verbal cues, including a headphone nod study (conducted by Gary
Wells of the University of Alberta and Richard Petty of the University of Missouri) and
William Condon's cultural microrhythms study.
The Stickiness Factor, the specific content of a message that renders its impact
memorable. Popular children's television programs such as Sesame Street and Blue's
Clues pioneered the properties of the stickiness factor, thus enhancing the effective
retention of the educational content in tandem with its entertainment value.
Page 2 of 2
The Power of Context: Human behavior is sensitive to and strongly influenced by its
environment. As Gladwell says, "Epidemics are sensitive to the conditions and
circumstances of the times and places in which they occur."[11] For example, "zero
tolerance" efforts to combat minor crimes such as fare-beating and vandalism on the
New York subway led to a decline in more violent crimes city-wide. Gladwell describes
the bystander effect, and explains how Dunbar's number plays into the tipping point,
using Rebecca Wells' novel Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, evangelist John
Wesley, and the high-tech firm W. L. Gore and Associates. Gladwell also discusses what
he dubs the rule of 150, which states that the optimal number of individuals in a society
that someone can have real social relationships with is 150.[12]

Three Types of People

  • 1. Page 1 of 2 The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference (ISBN 0-316-31696-2) is a book by Malcolm Gladwell, first published by Little Brown in 2000. THREE TYPES OF PEOPLE "The Law of the Few", or, as Gladwell states, "The success of any kind of social epidemic is heavily dependent on the involvement of people with a particular and rare set of social gifts."[3] According to Gladwell, economists call this the "80/20 Principle, which is the idea that in any situation roughly 80 percent of the 'work' will be done by 20 percent of the participants."[4] (see Pareto Principle) These people are described in the following ways: Connectors are the people who "link us up with the world ... people with a special gift for bringing the world together."[5] They are "a handful of people with a truly extraordinary knack [... for] making friends and acquaintances".[6] He characterizes these individuals as having social networks of over one hundred people. To illustrate, Gladwell cites the following examples: the midnight ride of Paul Revere, Milgram's experiments in the small world problem, the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" trivia game, Dallas businessman Roger Horchow, and Chicagoan Lois Weisberg, a person who understands the concept of the weak tie. Gladwell attributes the social success of Connectors to "their ability to span many different worlds [... as] a function of something intrinsic to their personality, some combination of curiosity, self-confidence, sociability, and energy."[7] Mavens are "information specialists", or "people we rely upon to connect us with new information."[4] They accumulate knowledge, especially about the marketplace, and know how to share it with others. Gladwell cites Mark Alpert as a prototypical Maven who is "almost pathologically helpful", further adding, "he can't help himself".[8] In this vein, Alpert himself concedes, "A Maven is someone who wants to solve other people's problems, generally by solving his own".[8] According to Gladwell, Mavens start "word- of-mouth epidemics"[9] due to their knowledge, social skills, and ability to communicate. As Gladwell states, "Mavens are really information brokers, sharing and trading what they know".[10] Salesmen are "persuaders", charismatic people with powerful negotiation skills. They tend to have an indefinable trait that goes beyond what they say, which makes others want to agree with them. Gladwell's examples include California businessman Tom Gau and news anchor Peter Jennings, and he cites several studies about the persuasive implications of non-verbal cues, including a headphone nod study (conducted by Gary Wells of the University of Alberta and Richard Petty of the University of Missouri) and William Condon's cultural microrhythms study. The Stickiness Factor, the specific content of a message that renders its impact memorable. Popular children's television programs such as Sesame Street and Blue's Clues pioneered the properties of the stickiness factor, thus enhancing the effective retention of the educational content in tandem with its entertainment value.
  • 2. Page 2 of 2 The Power of Context: Human behavior is sensitive to and strongly influenced by its environment.

Gladwell describes the bystander effect, and explains how Dunbar's number plays into the tipping point, using Rebecca Wells' novel Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, evangelist John Wesley, and the high-tech firm W. L. Gore and Associates. Gladwell also discusses what he dubs the rule of 150, which states that the optimal number of individuals in a society that someone can have real social relationships with is 150.[12]
