The New Yorker
Became frustrated with our definition of success
Set out to determine why not everyone who is smart, ambitious, and/or talented does not share the same success
Outliers: The Story of Success
is the answer Slide4
What is an outlier?
According to Gladwell, “ ‘Outlier’ is a scientific term to describe things or phenomena that lie outside the normal experience” (312).
I.E. A day in August with a temperature below freezing.
Gladwell focuses on people who “are so accomplished and so extraordinary and so outside of ordinary experience that they are as puzzling to the rest of us as a cold day in August” (312). Slide5
Gladwell uses the village of
, Pennsylvania to introduce this idea.
emigrated from Italy in 1882 and settled in Pennsylvania
Stewart Wolf, a physician, began studying the people of
Heart attacks were currently an epidemic in the United States and were a leading cause of death in men under the age of 65.
This was not the case in
(Gladwell 3-7). Slide6
In his research, Wolf discovered:
No one under 55 died of a heart attack or suffered from heart disease.
For men over 65, the death rate from heart disease was half the national death rate.
The death rate from all causes was 30-35% lower than the national death rate (Gladwell 7).
Wolf then began to test theories for why this may be. Slide7
1. Diet & Exercise
41 percent of calories in normal diet came from fat
Smoked heavily and suffered from obesity
not living in Pennsylvania suffered from heart disease.
Neighboring towns matched the national death rates. Slide8
Where do we go from here?
Gladwell chose to research “Outliers” of our society in the same way Wolf studied
. The book is his published findings about how Outliers achieve success.
You will read two chapters – “The Matthew Effect” & One of your choice
You will focus on what unique factors help these individuals to be successful – location, education, or culture.
Homework: Read “The Matthew Effect” and annotate evidence of location, education, and/or culture influencing success. Slide9
Wolf came to the conclusion that it was not the
themselves, but rather the culture they created.
Their tight-knit community and traditions brought over from Italy allowed for a more laidback, stress-free existence. Slide10
