The point, said Whitman, is that “I think every human being, Arthur Levitt or the janitor or the waitress or the doctor or the professor, needs and craves validation and positive feedback.” And the big misconception is to think that it has to be money. “It can be really small things,” said Whitman, “telling someone, ‘You did a really great job, you were recognized as doing a great history paper.’ Our users say to us [about eBay’s star system], ‘Where else can you wake up in the morning and see how much people like you?’”

— Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay
