Team Problem Solving Myths and Reality

Brain Leaders and Learners-posted 25 living brain myths. Below are some of my favorites.

5. MYTH:It’s best to get things off your chest by venting and speaking out about key problems.
Reality: Venting is bad for the brain and creates new neuron pathways to much more of the same.

8. MYTH: Lectures offer an especially valuable way to learn - especially when the speaker interests.
Reality: Lectures and talks work against listeners’ brains and benefit speakers’ intelligence mostly.

23. MYTH: After people master a skill, only then are they ready to teach that skill to others.
Reality: Inspire creativity and invention through teaching others at the same time you also learn.
