    I don't know which organ came first, the eye or the brain, but I can think of a few people who are still in the first stages of development for the latter :-) It's a shame that these people are in positions of leadership though, dragging everyone in their ignorance...

    On a more positive note, it seems that intuition (or instinct as it is referred to here) is an invaluable feature to have in our thinking. I have a feeling that it is even older (and more important) than our analytical faculties. But then again, that's just a gut feeling I have on the matter :-)

    Wonderful post, Steve. Here in the States, a generation of millennials brought up to believe that everyone deserves a trophy now finds themselves entering the real world completely unprepared for the fact that the world does not owe them a living. Many can not find jobs in their field of study, and in a rich study of irony, blame the generation that taught them that everybody deserves a trophy. We have raised an entire generation of entitled ingrates that feels manual labor beneath them.

    It's time to stop the touchy feely everybody wins nonsense and start teaching our kids that there is honor in working with their hands.

    @Steve Jones Great read on the roller coaster of life and work. I can identify with a lot of what you say - this one very much: "I’ve slept in a car when I didn’t have enough money for accommodation. I’ve flown first class, stayed in 5 star hotels and also stayed at places where it was safer to bring your own bedding." Strange thing is, often the places where you need to bring your own bedding are much more interesting than the five star hotels. To your ongoing journey!

    Excellent suggestions Dimitris.
    I think one reason why people find it difficult to learn another language is that they don't see a need for it. For example, I want to learn Chinese but everyone here speaks English or Malay. If I am in an environment where Chinese language skills are needed, I may be more desperate to learn it.

    Hi @John White, MBA - Thank you for this article. I grew up in a family where we had hosted a few exchange students and other guests from different cultures: Tibet, NZ, USA, Australia, Korea.. For my two brothers and I it was a great opportunity to improve our English skills. All three of us had the opportunity later to live and work abroad. These early contacts with different cultures had a lasting influence on us. Knowing both sides - as a host family and as a student I will make sure to host foreign exchange students at my home as well. And of course, I will encourage my kids to study abroad. There is now better way to grow open and tolerant kids. Best, Marcel

    Great advice here, John, as always. It's important for children to gain a broader perspective of the world than just that of the USA, or wherever country in which they live. Moreover, in today's modern and hyper-connected global, digital, mobile and virtual world, it simply makes good sense -- personally and professionally -- to learn more about other cultures and peoples. This will make the next generation of leaders more well rounded and grounded.
    Again, John, kudos on another brilliant buzz!

    Hi Bob! Thoroughly enjoyed all the comments and liked quite a rowdy few of them before I read your uncharacteristically long buzz. Oops sorry! I think you have had enough of all trainers who make it sound as if the left and right brain are two different things with distinct, disparate functions that need to be integrated (by Trainers like them) to increase corporate productivity and individual performance ;) What Gerry is saying is that at the cellular, anatomical, neurological levels the uniqueness of each hemisphere is true. And those distinctions do apply. A faulty bridge or connection can upset the entire mechanism, but so can a faulty part in the left or right, right? But your buzz sounds like it underestimates the neuro-scientific paradigm a bit and it is quite likely that folks might arrive at a conclusion early and overlook the hyperbole ;) I had responded to something by Ian a while ago...let me paste that response here..but let this not take us on another tangent :) : ''....While waiting for a close relative to emerge from a comatose state that lasted for 41 days after an accident, many a doctor told us that time and again that the human Brain was still a mystery and only 10% of it made sense to modern science! And that the average human uses only 10% of his/her brain for all functions. So it was wait and watch till he finally came through. But it wasn't the same person that went in. The multiple clots on the frontal lobe and the right hemisphere/side/part of his brain did something no one could understand or explain. Just like a hard drive with bad sectors/corrupt areas that will not function the same as before! The OS now has less functionality or limited functionality! The Brain is the closest to the barrier that separates matter from consciousness.Through the sensory complex of the Mind perhaps?....'' Okay end of that quote...time to pick up that guitar and sing a right brain song plucking with the left brain fingers maybe? :)

    Correct me if I am mistaken but isn't Robert referring more to the dynamics , behaviours , learnings and thinking of the brain as a whole whereby Gerald is considering the science facts to date regarding the physical aspects of the brain. No doubt there is some overlap on the effects on people however , I would agree that the human brain is more than a machine and has many complex layers both physichal and psychodynamic .

    Thought I'd just add my little bit to the pot! Much of what is being debated here is dealt with by us in neuro-rehabilitation. Individuals that have suffered damage to the non-dominant hemisphere (usually the right) are more difficult to rehabilitate than left/dominant hemispheres. Non-dominant are often emotionally disconnected, lose subtlety (and humor), lose big picture appreciation (often remaining inappropriate); Dominant hemishere lesions are the usual aphasias, agraphias, acalculias and other linear/strategic functions. And yes, there's a fair amount of neuroplasticity activity giving rise to some re-wiring, but ... clear differences in hemispheral function within a comprehensively integrated whole brain.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    13/10/2016 #31 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #19 Utterly clear about the anatomy and the very real difference that makes us "feel like a unified system until we break our neck" neuroplasticity won't get anyone anywhere in that case. And thousands of other physical issues. But this article isn't addressing anatomy. Certainly the title is hyperbole. He is saying you can't ascribe creativity to right brain and analytical processing to left, if you do you are reducing what humans are capable of to rigid categories.

    As Socrates, help me understand this further, because I don't quite know how to pinpoint what functionality can be considered to have neuroplastic potential in the brain, which is what I see to be the debate. How far can we take the possibilities of what might be re-wired and what will hit a literal anatomical wall?

    In all honesty, I feel like I am looking at that picture of an old hag or fancy lady in a hat depending on how I squint. I have this fuzzy grasp of what you are objecting to, but I cannot find the specific place where I have the knowledge to negate anything Robert has said. I think quite a few of us are interested so pretend I am 18 and learning about a brain without any malfunction.

    How about this question - if your corpus callosum was severed would you have responded any differently? I am really curious.

    #29 @Milos Djukic thank you...when it comes to our anatomy/physiology (how we are "built", and how we "work")...it seems particularly important; if gross neuroanatomy and neurophysiology have become indistinguishable from a Trump/Clinton Debate and people can decide on who makes the better....THIS IS CRAZY! It will soon change with medical breakthroughs (it is) but as of now --IF A PERSON BREAKS THEIR NECK AND COMPLETELY SEVERS THE SPINAL CORD...you can't write a book called "Everything you Learned About Spinal Cord Transection is a Lie"... What is going on here?

    #17 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich okay let's throw away my mechanics and go with your thingie --do you consent to either 1) a complete surgical transection of all of the the "bridges" connecting your Cerebral Hemispheres 2) A complete surgical transection of either all of (your choice) your ANTERIOR or POSTERIOR spinal nerve root ganglia or 3) a prefrontal lobotomy because you know with absolute certainty that all of that is mechanistic crap that will not effect you in the least ? YES OR NO? WHY or WHY NOT?????

    Do really think there is an Anatomical/Physiological Expert who is going to publicly say that the "Bell-Magendie Law" snd the effects of Corpus Callosum/ANTERIOR Commissure transection are LIES?? WHAT PLANET IS THIS? Where are the Neurologists...where are the scientists @Ian Weinberg ???

    Some pointing on Middle east countries.. about support etc.. OK let me pullout some from history: How many know about "Desert Storm".. when Kuwaiti's left their country, Saudi Arabia opened it's borders and high rise buildings were given with amenities.. till date those are known as Kuwaiti buildings. Also other GCC stood in support. Give a thought thinking.. deep dive if anyone can pull out the points to ponder then you have the answers. No need to think or workout like a person from Top 1000 institutions, simply just give a try to think like Aryans.

    The first focus. Seems the media unnecessarily giving roller coaster ride ..and also the article here posted carry some terms as "The Muslim Ban". There is no such declaration "MUSLIM BAN". How many of those here sharing opinions allow "someone to jump the fence"? How many allow the guest to take over there ownership of something they own? How many stand outside giving away & allowing someone to take shelter under their umbrella?. How many allow the weed to grow because it has attractive flowers .. later only to worry over dandelions?. Any Canadians here in the comments thread.. let's ask @Jim Murray "refugees are given support by government.. is the same supportive given to legal residents, citizens, senior citizens, single moms, below income residents?. How many times any homeless person at anytime given a free ride by TTC or any transit? Did anyone see the shelters of homeless people?.

    Nowhere have anything to do with The USA, but I openly applause and give a thumbs up to "President Donald J Trump". If by chance anyone followed my tweets more than a year back, tweeted tweets mentioning 'seems @realDonaldTrump will be bring back American dream..." and "how many see passion in eyes of @realDonaldTrump. Some or many are surely overlooking it". Adding another important point to ponder "after sworn in the addressing speech" which was awesome, amazing and superb.

    Please don't take me wrong. @Robert Bacal sir if it's ok to ask on your opinion "when and how did The USA became un-great? Who are behind it? From where the competitors emerged? Where all it not adapt? What does it mean "the culture is broken"? There are answers for all these give thought over with "Why", not in the pundits but with perceptions of a common persons thinking". Not necessary only those from top 100o institutions but anyone can surely pick points to ponder and need to be an expert with best practices certification. Just chalk out and maybe not everyone but many surely deep in their heart and mind applause "Donald J Trump the newly elect president of The USA".

    #32 I don't think ISIS can be defeated under Trump. As you put it, "it must be done in coalition with Islamic Nations," that I do agree with. It won't happen with a President Trump or as I like to call him #45. I can't even refer to him as President (yes, I said it) ;-) Trump won because many people were disenfranchised Bernie supporters who A. Stayed home and didn't vote B. Voted to spite Hillary because they did not like her, C. People's choices in news organizations sway who they vote for, and one media channel in particular, has always been anti-Obama which helped to further Trump's agenda, D. Nationalism whether some agree or not and lastly E. People who don't do their homework and truly saw Trump as this Savy businessman who could run a country. I agree, those who didn't vote have no right to complain NOW- I hope they will learn a lesson from all of this. We didn't deserve him and agree, the world didn't. Did you hear about him threatening to send troops to Mexico to go after 'the bad hombres, " today?!! And, he was rude to the Australian PM over refugees and the call was over fairly quick. Good job Trump.. 2 of our Allies- Australia was the first to fight w/the US during Vietnam.

    #28 I am saying this presidential election had more media coverage than any election in history and it went on for well over a year. The American people had plenty of time to formulate opinions one way or another. The American people voted and Trump was elected democratically. Your nation chose your president. What did people expect? That he would change? You now have a president that is acting on his campaign pledges. Again, what did you expect? I know you voted Hilary, but what about all those that didn't vote. They don't have a leg to stand on by complaining now. And ISIS can be defeated, but it must be done in coalition with Islamic nations and the vacuum cannot be filled with puppets. Trump's actions have played into the hands of ISIS recruiters and the World will suffer the consequences. Trump needs to be stopped. We didn't deserve this.

    #26 I love hearing others views when it comes to countries we only hear about via the Media or in print. Yes, many are concerned about Human Rights Issues and I do pray that will change since those Governing China are changing their views as you pointed out. I had no idea Japan had become so stagnant, that's sad to hear. In the 80-90's they were booming. I hate to say this but I'm just waiting for the Trumpster to provoke China soon. This man or shall I say those who steer him want to dominate the Globe, some would disagree with me.

    #21 Do you mean "America is getting what it deserves," Because the people voted for Trump, @Dean Owen? That confused me. I fear what will follow too. I don't think anyone can defeat ISIS unless they kill many, many innocent human beings and even then, there will always be a 'form' of ISIS. There are differing opinions on how ISIS came to be. Some say Russia backs and funds them. We've always been told they formed after we invaded Iraq. I fear if the US or any Country for that matter thinks they can defeat ISIS, the big bombs come out and much of civilization will be forever defeated. Whats ironic- many of us predicted that if we went to war against Al Qaeda another faction would rise and they did, ISIS aka as ISIL. They are like breeding rats, hard to defeat.

    #25 With globalisation came a need for nation's workforces to compete. The Western hemisphere is losing out to an Asian workforce that is willing to work harder, longer, and for less money. These protectionist measures are a direct but unfortunate result of this, and an all out trade war will ultimately benefit neither side. Innovation and IP is less and less a factor. The only way to compete in this era of globalisation is to increase productivity. The Chinese will be unbeatable as the up and coming generation benefits from a Western education at top schools plus a highly motivated workforce willing to do what it takes. This is very different from what we saw in Japan in the 80's. Japan will continue to stagnate as it is a culture of doing things by the book and every corporation is so wrapped up in bureaucracy, nothing ever gets done. I am in a rather lonely position as a Westerner who is a fan of the Chinese government as most are blinded by human rights issues. What they don't understand is that the govt here is sensitive to these issues but now is not the time. Social instability can easily derail the tremendous progress of the last decade. There will be a time to discuss freedom of speech, democracy, Tibet and other issues, but the time is not now. The Chinese govt is acting in the best interests of the majority, and I can tell you, the majority of people are extremely happy with the government. I am not a fan of corporate governance in China, but that is to be expected. Most of the current business leaders grew up in a dog eat dog world and would do anything to get ahead. That will change with the upcoming generation of Western educated Chinese who will import Global Best Practices and adopt them to a uniquely Chinese model. Apologies for going off-topic. Once in a while I like to get my views off my chest.

    They used to burn libraries and books to keep the public from learning the truths of History ~ Now they just put a # on their blather and their 6 second minions will devour that next hit of Pavlovian Kibble like it is the very air they breathe. The Truth will Set you Free - namely because nobody will pay to hear you speak it.
    The current Marxist Recipe that Soros and Crew are using is 150 years old - y'all should acquaint yourselves how each and every one of those has ended badly for the useful idiots they deployed. * Hint Imprisonment, Disappearances, Assassinations, Prison, Exile, Execution en Mass.

    "America First" is a great policy if enacted with consideration to the World at large. Unfortunately America elected a leader who is clueless as to the potential consequences of his actions. But he is a result of a democratic process that is clearly flawed. I have long stated that a strong central government, if it is the right one, will always produce superior results since there is no reset every 4 or 8 years. Singapore and China have had the right governments in place. China has had wrong governments in the past, but the current one is steering the country into huge prosperity, and it's foreign policy cornerstone is to focus on win-win scenarios. America perhaps needed a reset. A slap in the face. A reality check. This hopefully short Trump presidency is it. Let's hope we all get through it unharmed. Close

    America is getting what it deserves, but the rest of the World isn't. I fear 911 will be minuscule compared to what is to come. Trump may very well defeat ISIS just as Bush toppled Saddam, but I fear for what will follow.
