In this 1-minute episode, the focus is on the psychological and cultural factors affecting virtual interactions via platforms like Zoom. My guest, Andrew Satz acknowledges that Zoom and similar tools have made it easier for introverted individuals to navigate social and professional settings. However, they also note that willingness to turn on video can be influenced by generational, cultural, and individual preferences. For example, in some countries, it is more common to keep the video off during virtual meetings, while in the West, the norm leans toward video-on.
The discussion also delves into the physiological aspect of virtual interactions, particularly the energy expenditure associated with using one’s optic nerve during video calls. Andrew also cites an article from the Wall Street Journal discussing “Zoom fatigue,” which explores how the use of the optic nerve—the largest energy-consuming part of the brain—during extended virtual meetings can lead to exhaustion.
