A Missing Link?

This is not a posting about evolution or intelligent design, but it does contain an element of biology.  I wish that I knew more about the brain and critical thinking processes in the human brain.  I cannot seem to grasp the way big liberal think.  Do they have a part of their brain that is overdeveloped?  I suspect it is an underdeveloped are, but wanted to give them the benefit…initially.  The progressives see life and American so much differently than I do I sometimes have doubts about my own clarity (only briefly). 

Maybe they are right?

Brain Rules

Exercise, survival, wiring, attention, short-term memory, long-term memory, sleep, stress, sensory integration, vision, gender, and exploration…These are the twelve principle exposed by author John Medina to keep your brain healthy, wealthy, and wise.  These are fully outlined in Medina’s Brain Rules.

In Medina’s chapter on attention he addressed our spans of attention…generally a full ten minutes.  As an introvert who now enjoys giving presentations that often last longer than that I was interested in his theory.  He doesn’t suggest that you cannot talk for more than ten minutes, you may just have to grab their attention every nine minutes and fifty-nine seconds.
