Every brain is wired differently.
What YOU do and learn in life physically changes what your brain looks like – it literally rewires it. We used to think there were just 7 categories of intelligence. But categories of intelligence may number more than 7 billion—roughly the population of the world.
No two people have the same brain, not even twins. Every student’s brain, every employee’s brain, every customer’s brain is wired differently.
You can either accede to it or ignore it. The current system of education ignores it by having grade structures based on age. Businesses such as Amazon are catching on to mass customization (the Amazon homepage and the products you see are tailored to your recent purchases). As a regular customer of Amazon, they almost "know" me and my areas of interest better than I do!
Regions of the brain develop at different rates in different people. The brains of school children are just as unevenly developed as their bodies. Our school system ignores the fact that every brain is wired differently. We wrongly assume every brain is the same.
Here is a quick video by Dr. John Medina, author of "Brain Rules", talking a little more about our brain's wiring.
This is mind-blowing (bad pun intended). The human brain is individually wired. When God "knit us together", and created as as "works of art", He made us unique in many ways that science is just now beginning to understand.
A quick summary:
- 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 do not show up on IQ tests
The book is "Brain Rules" by Dr. John Medina. You really need to take a look at it!
