The Question Man – Our hero for turbulent times

Adam Grant in his book “Think Again” writes:

“Intelligence is traditionally viewed as the ability to think and learn. Yet in a turbulent world, there’s another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn.”

“We often prefer the ease of hanging on to old views over the difficulty of grappling with new ones. Yet there are also deeper forces behind our resistance to rethinking. Questioning ourselves makes the world more unpredictable. It requires us to admit that the facts may have changed, that what was once right may now be wrong. Reconsidering something we believe deeply can threaten our identities making it feel as if we are losing a part of ourselves.”

“Under acute stress, people typically revert to their automatic, well-learned responses.”

“Our ways of thinking become habits that can weigh us down, and we don’t bother to question them until it’s too late.”

Inspired by the above words, i took the liberty of doodling it.

Think Again is a must read book.
