There is the Emotional Mind, the Rational Mind, and the Wise Mind.
A wise mind takes the best of the two worlds, the emotional mind and the rational mind, and brings them together in what is known as a dialectical point or balance. A wise mind is when both our heart and mind are in congruence, and not in state of conflict with one another. The emotional mind could be described as "Brain 1.0", the rational mind as "Brain "2.0" and the wise mind as "Brain 3.0." By practising something called neuroplasticity we can develop additional neural pathways in our brain to be able to see life from more than just our own perspective.
Howard Gardner, a developmental psychologist is best-known for his theory of multiple intelligences which breaks intelligence down into 9 types of intelligence, and nobody can excel at all of them.
Most people probably think of someone with book smarts as being intelligent, but there are thought to be 9 types of intelligence and nobody can excel at all of them.
Examples of this include:
People may sometimes want to believe they are good at everything, yet we all have our strengths and weaknesses. There is no right or wrong when it comes to social styles. Part of practicing diversity and inclusion includes recognizing that there are different thinking styles on a team, and the type of thinking required in one situation may not be quite right for a different situation. To reduce conflict within a team, so as to maximize and maintain a team's energy, it is important to practice versatility which includes adapting one's thinking style to the situation at hand, while recognizing the thinking styles of other team members.
Psychological bias is the opposite of common sense and clear, measured judgment. It can lead to missed opportunities and poor decision making.
