No Time to Think

It is worth watching the talk given by David Levy at Google in 2008 called “No Time to Think“. He highlights how intellect has two aspects – one that is about searching, abstracting, refining and concluding (the stuff we are generally taught to be good at) – the other is about thinking, reflection, assimilation and contemplation – and that both are important, and that the second scholarly aspect is not given equal weighting. It is worth checking out the video if you have time ;>
