Newfound Respect for My Right Brain

This video changed the way I think about myself.

Before:  Values cognition, ability to think, solve problems, an active mind.  I define myself based on my ability to think.

After:  We are complex creatures connected to each other.  The right brain is just as, or even more important than the left brain.  We are not just the products of our thoughts, though that often defines our reality.  Also, why use only half of my brain?  That makes me only half as smart.

No, I didn’t get all of this from this video but this talk started me down a path to exploring other perspectives about the human condition.  It’s a relatively new path for me so I’ve drawn few conclusions.
