"For me, the lesson...is that obstacles can also be advantages, that who we become is deeply influenced by what we cannot do" — Jonah Lehrer blogs on stuttering and Tourette's. "The secret is to struggle through, because the very act of raging against a disadvantage generates its own set of skills. That, at least, is the message of (new research) on Tourette's Syndrome and cognitive control." He also says, "it's interesting to think about timing control advantages in light of the fact that Tim Howard, the goalie on the U.S. World Cup squad, has Tourette's."
