Every brain is wired differently

In the solution-focused approach we treat each individual as unique. To what extent is saying that people are unique just a cliché? Here is what brain researcher John Medina says about the uniqueness of each brain:

  • What you do and learn in life physically changes what your brain looks like - it literally rewires it.
  • The various regions of the brain develop at different rates in different people.
  • No two people's brains store the same information in the same way in the same place.
  • We have a great number of ways of being intelligent, many of which don't show up on IQ tests.

  1. I read the book.
    It's OK, a lot of hype... but still some useful snippets.
    actually, the DVD that was with the book is worth the purchase.
    His youtube videos are pretty cool, too.
    Thanks for pointing them out!
    Ciao,
    Paolo

  2. Hi Paolo, one of the things I liked in the book is the part about how to structure your presentations (in blocks of 10 minutes which are followed by a hook).
