We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them-Albert Einstein

Let’s resolve to work for better thinking in 2018.

Amid the noise and clutter of the holidays, the confusion of international and domestic politics, the flash of new tech tools and toys, and the static of trivial tweets, nothing calms, focuses, sorts, stores, sheds, shields, and serves us better than good thinking.

It will take strong thinkers to navigate through the problems and opportunities facing us today and in the future. We give ourselves the best opportunity for success in 2018 when:

  • we can differentiate between unfounded opinions and well-reasoned points of view
  • we can explain our perspectives based on sound reasons and good evidence
  • we maintain a positive thinking mindset that prizes truth-seeking and fair-mindedness.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” — Albert Einstein

Strength in thinking skills and mindset is a global educational goal. Democracies flourish, professions serve, businesses excel and student achieve their career goals when people make well-reasoned, reflective and purposeful judgments about what to believe or what to do in all aspects of their lives. 

Join Insight Assessment , the worldwide leader in the measurement of reasoning skills and thinking mindset, in making 2018 the “Year for Better Thinking.”  Let’s all do whatever we can to encourage and to celebrate well-reasoned decision making and effective problem solving in education, business, and government, and in our personal and civic lives. 

Call out and praise good thinking. Don’t settle for myopic, biased or careless thinking. Listen carefully. Evaluate and understand the sources of information. Consciously think about the quality of your decision making. Cultivate positive habits of mind. Practice your skills of analysis, evaluation, inference, inductive and deductive reasoning. Be thoughtful.

INSIGHT Decision Making Requires Skills and Mindset

Business success depends on building a more diverse, more productive workforce.

Today HR departments need to be sensitive to unconscious biases to be sure that candidate selection is not skewed. The challenge is how. Standard screening processes have proven unreliable.

Musicians are auditioned behind a screen so that they will be judged purely by the quality of their music. It's not about who they are--it's about what they can do (the quality of their musicianship).

Obviously businesses can't audition candidates behind a screen, so objective ways to determine the potential of candidates must be based on more relevant metrics.

What could be more effective--and useful--than a "blind hiring" process that starts with an objective assessment of the cognitive skills and motivational attributes that predict professional success.

Metrics that focus on the strengths and weaknesses of individual candidates, not their resume or demographic data, are powerful tools for your decision-making.
