Most entrepreneurs believe they were born to branch out on their own, and now there’s some proof that may be true. Turns out the entrepreneurial mindset is literally a mindset. I.E., their brain function is different from regular businesspeople. From FastCompany.com:
The entrepreneurs in the study, perhaps surprisingly, weren't any more likely to engage in exploration. But when they did, they were more likely to activate both the right and left sides of their frontal cortex. Managers mainly stuck to the left side, which is associated with logic and structured thinking. The right side, on the other hand, is associated with creativity and emotion.
So according to this research, managers only use half their brain. Well, there's nothing I can say here that won't get me fired... so... how about those Golden Globes, huh? That Jodie Foster speech was pretty wild...
