Do you think like a polymath? Here's a quick test: are you more of a rational or experiential/intuitive thinker?
If you cringed as you read the question and thought to yourself, "I love constantly shifting between both modes of thought," then you're on the polymath path.
According to psychologist Seymour Epstein's cognitive-experiential self-theory, humans have two parallel but interacting modes of information processing. The rational system is analytic, logical, abstract and requires justification via logic and evidence. In contrast, the experiential system is holistic, affective, concrete, experienced passively, processes information automatically and is self-evidently valid (that is, experience alone is enough for belief).
