The Secret To Creativity, Intelligence, And Scientific Thinking. There’s a key difference between knowledge and experience and it’s best described like this: The image is from cartoonist Hugh MacLeod, who came up with such a brilliant way to express a concept that’s often not that easy to grasp.

The Secret To Creativity, Intelligence, And Scientific Thinking

The image makes a clear point—that knowledge alone is not useful unless we can make connections between what we know. Whether you use the terms "knowledge" and "experience" to explain the difference or not, the concept itself is sound. Lots of great writers, artists and scientists have talked about the importance of collecting ideas and bits of knowledge from the world around us, and making connections between those dots to fuel creative thinking and new ideas.

This is a really fun, inspiring topic to read about, so I collected some quotes and advice from my favorite creative thinkers about the importance of making connections in your brain. Intelligence and connections: why your brain needs to communicate well with itself Creativity is just connecting things.

Det är många lärare i Sverige som jobbar med elevernas sociala utveckling. Om det är något som är nytt är det att forskningen tycks poängtera ”grit” eller ”sisus” betydelse för att lyckas i skolan och i livet. När jag (John) möter elever brukar jag säga till dem att skolan är ett uthållighetsprov mera än ett intelligensprov.

Häng med på lektionerna. Gör läxorna. I detta exempel får eleverna intervjua en äldre person som har lyckats nå mål trots hinder och svårigheter. Syftet är att få igång tankar och en diskussion om uthållighetens betydelse. The Duckworth Lab. Our Work Our lab focuses on two traits that predict achievement: grit and self-control.

The Duckworth Lab

Grit is the tendency to sustain interest in and effort toward very long-term goals (Duckworth et al., 2007). Self-control is the voluntary regulation of behavioral, emotional, and attentional impulses in the presence of momentarily gratifying temptations or diversions (Duckworth & Seligman, 2005; Duckworth & Steinberg, 2015).

The Future of Self-Improvement, Part I: Grit Is More Important Than Talent. In the late ’60s, Stanford psychologist Walter Mischel performed a now-iconic experiment called the Marshmallow Test, which analyzed the ability of four year olds to exhibit “delayed gratification.”

The Future of Self-Improvement, Part I: Grit Is More Important Than Talent

Here’s what happened: Each child was brought into the room and sat down at a table with a delicious treat on it (maybe a marshmallow, maybe a donut). The scientists told the children that they could have a treat now, or, if they waited 15 minutes, they could have two treats. All of the children wanted to wait. (Who doesn’t want more treats?) But many couldn’t. When the researchers subsequently checked in on these same children in high school, it turned out that those with more self-control — that is, those who held out for 15 minutes — were better behaved, less prone to addiction, and scored higher on the SAT. It’s not difficult to see how self-control would be predictive of success in certain spheres. In essence, Twitter is the new marshmallow.

And yet: Self-control isn’t the whole story. Grit. Grit and the Secret of Success. Which Traits Predict Success? (The Importance of Grit) What are the causes of success?

Which Traits Predict Success? (The Importance of Grit)

At first glance, the answer is easy: success is about talent. It’s about being able to do something – hit a baseball, play chess, trade stocks, write a blog – better than most anyone else. That’s a fine answer, but it immediately invites another question: What is talent? How did that person get so good at hitting a baseball or trading stocks?

For a long time, talent seemed to be about inheritance, about the blessed set of genes that gave rise to some particular skill. In recent years, however, the pendulum has shifted. That’s interesting, right? The ability to ask these questions, to peel away layers of explanation, is one of the reasons I’m drawn to the psychological sciences. The first thing Duckworth, et. al. discovered is that deliberate practice works. But that still begs the question: Why were some kids better at drilling themselves with note cards? There are two interesting takeaways from this study. Seth Andrew, Founder of Democracy Prep Charter School.
