Creatives, Non-Linear Thinkers and So-Called Misfits

Creatives, Non-Linear Thinkers and So-Called Misfits | Global Brain | Scoop.it

The idea of the misfit worker occurred to me when I considered the challenge of bringing together individuals whose unique identities and contributions had been critiqued for so long that they were 'burned' by the concept of collaboration. How might we start to welcome them into a less-critical innovation or creative team?


Good ideas arise when people are given space to truly explore, in-depth, a particular train of thought. Susan Cain's recently-released Quiet details the challenge of introspection in the modern work environment. As she describes it, the prevailing concepts of what's best in the workplace are premised on the often-incorrect theory that group discussion and constant collaboration are the best way to solve problems. Instead, she suggests that we consider the extensive research which shows that better-quality ideas—especially those related to complex problems involving a lot of variables—require time and nuance to develop.

"As Crowdsourcing technologies evolve and spread over other domains, more and more complex problems can be tackled using a new form of human organization.[...] We will be able to solve problems [...] by presenting the complex problem to the collective intelligence and let it holistically express the solution."
