Daniel Pink on Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future
Jasraj Hothi

This could be seen as yet another pendulum swing, but what shame that we can’t just value all minds rather than insisting that the only way to “succeed” in life is through academic achievement, high test scores, a college degree, and a good-paying “professional” job. Complementing Pink’s book is another highly rated book by Todd Rose entitled “The End of Average.” Rose points out that focusing on individuality rather than “type” (right brain/left brain, etc) is vital because no two people share the same mental and/or physical characteristics. Only by providing learners with equal access — not to the same learning opportunities — but to a wide variety of learning opportunities from which they can choose to develop their unique minds — will be be able to tap into the richness of human capabilities.
