A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

Daniel H. Pink
Beethoven?s 9th Symphony?One of the most famous symphonies of all time, Beethoven?s ?Ode to Joy? is always a treat. I?ve found that on each listening something new surfaces?in part because the context in which I?ve listened alters and shapes the meaning.   Mozart?s Symphony No. 35, ?Haffner Symphony??Notice how Mozart brings in the woodwinds at the end to create a whole that dramatically surpasses he sum of the parts.   Mahler?s 4th Symphony in G Major?I doubt that inspiration was Mahler?s aim, but his 4th Symphony always sounds inspiring to me.   Tchaikovsky?s 1812 Overture?You?ve heard this one many times before. But next time, get a recording that uses actual church bells and cannons?and listen carefully to how the components fit together.   Haydn?s Symphony No. 94 in G Major, ?Surprise??To master the aptitude of Symphony, you must be open to surprise. When you listen to this, marvel at how Haydn uses surprise to broaden and deepen the music.

Daniel Goleman writes about a study of executives at fifteen large companies: ?Just one cognitive ability distinguished star performers from average: pattern recognition, the ?big picture? thinking that allows leaders to pick out the meaningful trends from a welter of information around them and to think strategically far into the future.?15

Sally Shaywitz, a Yale neuroscientist and specialist in dyslexia, writes, ?Dyslexics think differently. They are intuitive and excel at problem-solving, seeing the big picture, and simplifying?. They are poor rote reciters, but inspired visionaries.?13

self-made millionaires are four times more likely than the rest of the population to be dyslexic.12 Why? Dyslexics struggle with L-Directed Thinking and the linear, sequential, alphabetic reasoning at its core. But as with a blind person who develops a more acute sense of hearing, a dyslexic?s difficulties in one area lead him to acquire outsized ability in others.

What conductors and composers desire?what separates the long remembered from the quickly forgotten?is the ability to marshal these relationships into a whole whose magnificence exceeds the sum of its parts. So it is with the high-concept aptitude of Symphony.

Everything you create is a representation of something else; in this sense, everything you create is enriched by metaphor,? writes choreographer Twyla Tharp.

The ability to forge these kinds of inspired, inventive relationships is a function of the right side of our brains. Cognitive neuroscientists at Drexel and Northwestern universities have found that the flashes of insight that precede ?Aha!? moments are accompanied by a large burst of neural activity in the brain?s right hemisphere.

Like drawing, Symphony is largely about relationships. People who hope to thrive in the Conceptual Age must understand the connections between diverse, and seemingly separate, disciplines. They must know how to link apparently unconnected elements to create something new. And they must become adept at analogy?at seeing one thing in terms of another.

When the left brain doesn?t know what the right brain is doing, the mind is free to see relationships and to integrate those relationships into a whole. In many ways, this is the core of learning how to draw?as well as the key to mastering the aptitude of Symphony.

Symphonic thinking is a signature ability of composers and conductors, whose jobs involve corralling a diverse group of notes, instruments, and performers and producing a unified and pleasing sound.

Symphony, as I call this aptitude, is the ability to put together the pieces. It is the capacity to synthesize rather than to analyze; to see relationships between seemingly unrelated fields; to detect broad patterns rather than to deliver specific answers; and to invent something new by combining elements nobody else thought to pair.

WE ARE OUR STORIES. We compress years of experience, thought, and emotion into a few compact narratives that we convey to others and tell to ourselves.

Storytelling doesn?t replace analytical thinking,? he says. ?It supplements it by enabling us to imagine new perspectives and new worlds?. Abstract analysis is easier to understand when seen through the lens of a well-chosen story.?5
