This Is Your Brain on the Job

Well to find the answer to that question we might have to pick your brain…. or at least scan the electrical activity within your brain. Research is being is conducted using electrical brain scans and is finding a correlation between brain activity and visionary leaders.

Isn’t this surprising? Don’t be surprised to witness more scientific breakthroughs from the field of neuroscience. Neuroscience is a rapidly evolving field that uses the entire range of scientific research endeavors aimed at studying the nervous systems of organisms. The motivation of researchers is to understand human behavior and to discover ways to prevent or cure many devastating diseases. The extent of the brain’s capabilities is unknown, but it is the most complex living structure known in the universe! Researches have applied neuroscience to areas like economics, finance, and marketing. Even though new insights are fascinating, it is best to proceed with caution and not to oversimplify the results.

Here is what Fred Dvorak and Jaclyne Badal had to say about visionary leaders in the Wall Street Journal:

Research at Arizona State University compared brain maps between managers who rate high on a psychological test of visionary leadership, and those who rate low. The visionary leaders had more efficient left brains, which deal with logic and reasoning, and better connected right brains, which are responsible for social skills. Researchers hope to find more patterns as more brain scans are taken. The patterns could indicate brain activity associated with specific qualities like charisma, or something common to all good leaders.
