There's a special social dynamic that occurs in meetings, Montague says, that can not only make us feel stupid, but also make us act that way. All it takes is a colleague who seems smarter than us when he/she does a presentation, says the study’s lead author Kenneth T. Kishida, a research scientist at the institute. That can make us feel stupid -- and that can get in the way of how our brains process information.http://lifeinc.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/07/10312535-meetings-can-make-you-uh-stupid

Meetings enrage me.

When I was in management and I had the power to call meetings, I would call them weekly. We would all touch base. My people were all charged to touch base with others. Concernes/items would be laid on the table but everyone knew the commanders intent was to get disputes figgured out swiftly. Meetings are key, but utilizing a structure so that a meeting is a known quantity makes the process go smoothly.

Completely agree. Meetings = get paid to daydream time for me.
