11 Ways Successful People Overcome Uncertainty

11 Ways Successful People Overcome Uncertainty | Learning | Scoop.it

Our brains are hardwired to make much of modern life difficult. This is especially true when it comes to dealing with uncertainty. On the bright side, if you know the right tricks, you can override your brain’s irrational tendencies and handle uncertainty effectively.

 

Our brains give us fits when facing uncertainty because they’re wired to react to it with fear. In a recent study, a Caltech neuroeconomist imaged subjects’ brains as they were forced to make increasingly uncertain bets—the same kind of bets we’re forced to make on a regular basis in business.

Here's a snack to get your started on this Monday. This is a very quick post with great graphics that show which parts of the brain are activated through storytelling, and which parts of the brain are activated with data.


The graphics are great. What I really like is that the different areas of the brain are named, along with their function.


Even better, there's a link to an infographic with more detail. Frankly, I like the graphics in the post more than the infographic. But I know you'll enjoy both.

From classroom to boardroom we all have stories to inspire, motivate, and educate.

R Gopalakrishnan: Creativity from chaos

R Gopalakrishnan: Creativity from chaos | Learning | Scoop.it

Neurons get activated by diversity, and by a change in the routine of activity and thinking. Wrestling with an opinion different from your own, bending the mind to see an opposite view, going away for a holiday, taking a long walk, reading an unconnected book, listening to music, or even sleeping over a problem - all these get the neurons firing and colliding to provide new combinations of thoughts.

Learning, innovation, creativity happen on the boundaries of chaos and order. When we learn, it is bringing order, in a sense, to the unknown and, at the same, being aware that learning is fluid and impermanent.

10 Mind-Blowing Experiments That Will Change The Way You Understand Yourself

10 Mind-Blowing Experiments That Will Change The Way You Understand Yourself | Learning | Scoop.it

Why do we do the things we do? Despite our best attempts to "know thyself," the truth is that we often know astonishingly little about our own minds, and even less about the way others think. As Charles Dickens once put it, “A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.”

Psychologists have long sought insights into how we perceive the world and what motivates our behavior, and they've made enormous strides in lifting that veil of mystery. Aside from providing fodder for stimulating cocktail-party conversations, some of the most famous psychological experiments of the past century reveal universal and often surprising truths about human nature. Here are 10 classic psychological studies that may change the way you understand yourself.

Higher Consciousness

What is “higher consciousness,” really, and can it be unmoored from the baggage of spiritualism and superstition to enrich our secular understanding of what it means to be human?

Higher consciousness' sounds mystical and possibly irritating. It shouldn't. It just captures how we see things when we go beyond our own egos.

This is the direction we are headed. The distance to travel for schools is significant and the journey not simple until mindsets change. Deft educational leaders will be working on those mindsets.
