I’m finding it difficult to explain the 2:6:2 in the last part. IIRC it’s some sort of statistics stuff where data sets like how people’s performances in a group are usually distributed in a 20% good performance, 60% normal performance, and 20% low performance pattern. It says that if you take the top 20% high-performing people and make them their own group, 20% of them will perform above average, 60% as average, and the other 20% will slack, replicating the same 2:6:2 pattern again.
The closest thing to this that I can think of is the Pareto principle. It’s an 80-20 pattern that might be familiar to some people, with the 20% being relative (or influencing) the other 20% and 60% combined.
It really doesn’t matter that much since it never made much sense in that part of the story, which seemed to me more like “what goes around comes around” and other similar duality philosophies.
