Triad: The agile triplet Antifragility - Robustness - Fragility

The term “antifragility,” coined by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder,

is defined by the source of its strength.

Like the human body, whose immune system gets stronger from exposure to germs and diseases, the antifragile system improves or responds positively when shocked.

While fragile systems are easily injured and suffer from volatility, antifragile systems grow stronger in response to volatility. So-called robust systems remain unchanged.

The fragile are susceptible to large lethal shocks.

The robust can handle adversity but stay the same.

The antifragile grow and improve (evolve) from external shocks.
