Meetings Make Us Dumber

Okay, the headline says meetings make us dumber, a theory to which I've subscribed ever since I started going to meetings, but the article really says that meetings make us less creative.

I believe both. Herd mentality often rules meetings; you can almost hear the creativity sucked from the room. But I think meetings actually do make us dumber, as in, if you go to enough meetings, you will soon be a tad dumber. Over time, this can have a significant impact on your IQ, not to mention your willingness to live.

What do you think? Drop me an email and maybe we could set up a meeting to take some measurements.
