How I think & communicate is much more valuable than what I think or even what I know. In my world of dynamic thinking, meaning is co-created in a wonderful medley of triangulation, integration and collaboration!
Here’s how my ‘Fuzzy Logic’ can benefit you:
1. Dynamic Thinkers are Better at Navigating Uncertainty
When you indulge only in static thinking (1+1= 2), you struggle with the idea of adaptive thought. Dynamic Thinkers engage in both static and flexible and continuous thinking which allow them to better navigate uncertainty. They do not shy away from ‘not knowing’ – definitely the kind of thinking we need in a world where almost nothing is certain.
2. Dynamic Thinkers are Adaptable
Dynamic Thinkers are able to engage in meaningful reflection and adaptive thought. This means that they can thrive in an ever-changing world. In contrast to that, pure Static Thinkers only thrive when conditions are perfect – which is almost never if you live in the real world. Being open to doubt allows Dynamic Thinkers to become optimal planners and problem-solvers. Many entrepreneurs are natural Dynamic Thinkers.
3. Creativity is a by-product of Dynamic Intelligence
Creativity is not the same thing as being artistic. Creativity is in actual fact the ability to perceive information in new ways and in order to do that a person must value ‘fuzzy logic’ and welcome the unexpected. A Dynamic Thinker can feel his way through uncertainty until he stumbles onto an innovative perspective.
4. The Bigger Picture
When we only focus on cognitive development we become increasingly focused on what we know and what we don’t know takes a back seat. Dynamic Thinkers are curious thinkers. Instead of rigidly stopping to think about something when they think they understand it, they continuously reflect – on their own and in collaboration with others – which ultimately allows them to see the bigger picture and understand the interconnectedness of seemingly unrelated occurrences and fields. This, believe it or not, makes the Dynamic Thinker more accurate in predictions.
5. Compassionate Leaders
To have compassion is to have and understanding of a person as a whole, accompanied by a desire to look after that person in an integrated manner. In order to understand a person, one needs to continuously build bridges between one’s own perspectives and that of others. True understanding can only come when that understanding is co-created through dynamic communication. Dynamic communication goes hand in hand with integrated, dynamic thinking.
