MIT brain scans show that entrepreneurs really do think differently
MIT brain scans show that entrepreneurs really do think differently.
A brain scan study at MIT suggests that entrepreneurs are more likely to use both sides of their brains when making decisions.
Successful decision-making isn’t necessarily about doing more exploration than exploitation. It’s in the timing – knowing when to shift between the two forms of thinking. A question for further research is whether entrepreneurs’ brains function this way because of the kind of decisions they’re used to making, or whether people with these more coherent brains are more likely to end up as entrepreneurs.
