This article written by David Robson for BBC Worklife makes these points about learning from failure:
  • Most people struggle to handle failure.
  • Psychologists have identified these two types of failure aversion:
    • The Sour Grape Effect is when we sometimes give up too early.
    • The Ostrich Effect is a coping mechanism to hide your head in the sand, shifting your attention away from the upsetting situation.
  • Strategies such as Self-distancing can help you manage and learn from a 'failure'.
