“Territories” and Ideas (04-11-16)

Ideas can be marked and owned, just as territories can.  Brown (one of the leading researchers of physical territories) and Baer have learned that the territorial marking of ideas may not be a good idea.  They share that “Territorial marking allows people to communicate that a territory has been claimed. . . .  the use of control-oriented marking to communicate a territorial claim over one’s ideas inhibits invited creativity.” Verbally indicating ownership of an idea “marks territory” and reduces creative feedback on the thought shared.
