Interesting post from someone I know

Well so much for getting back on the bandwagon of posting more.

But in my defense, I’ve been busy this past month.

Someone I worked with briefly with has posted a post that I really liked and I think is on-topic to some of the stuff here, namely “how we think.”

I’ve always been fascinated by not only intelligence, but HOW we think. Why can some folk solve a problem faster than others? Why can some folks walk into a room and “see” everything there and others miss many details.

Years ago I developed the idea that folks had varying amounts of I/O “bandwidth” and more and more research seems to be bearing this out at a very general level. Ratha’s post explores a specific concept here of monotropism vs. polytropism and how some folks tend to focus on one thing to the extreme.
