How resolient are German politicians really?

resilience describes not only the ability to deal with pressure and uncertainty, but above all the human ability to learn from setbacks, to remain optimistic and to get up quickly.

This also applies to groups of people as represented by political parties. Now, at some point, the elections are always over and it becomes clear every time that many parties suffered severe setbacks. Of course, the question immediately arises how she will deal with this defeat, i.e. how resilient they actually are?

Resilience: the main thing is causal analysis

Those who carefully followed the interviews with the leaders of these parties on the evening of the election will have heard one sentence over and over again across all parties: "We will now sit down in the committees and ruthlessly analyze the reasons for this defeat".

This sentence describes in an excellent way one of the most important of the seven resilience factors: the causal analysis. Because this factor enables people to analyze the reasons (causa) for setbacks exactly and leads to the same Error doesn't always do it all over again.

The "why style" is learned

Every person has a particular style of doing such a causal analysis. It is also known as the “why style” and can be described on three levels. Level 1 describes whether I am looking for the reasons in myself (I-style) or in others (not-I-style).

At the 2 level, the human being asks whether the reasons in the future are not changeable (always-style) or changeable (non-always-style). On level 3, finally, I can relate the reasons to general (all-style) or to something specific (non-all-style).

We have not been adequately supported?

The majority of people have developed a specific style in the course of their lives, learned from other people and this is used again and again in the event of setbacks. Optimists, that is, positive-thinking people, for example, have the habit of using the “not-me” - “not-always” - “not-everything” style in the event of setbacks.

Applied to the current party landscape, this would mean that they would say, for example, “our coalition partner did not support us sufficiently in this election campaign”. The reasons lie outside the respective party, can be changed in the future and only relate to this specific support.

We will never make it any more?

Another common style is the "I" - "Always" - "All" style. This would be the case if the parties said, for example: "We will simply never be able to convince the voters of our ideas".

This is a style that can be found especially in pessimistic people: I am to blame and I will not be able to change it in the future either. Neither is the optimal solution. You will find out what this looks like in the second part of my post tomorrow.
