What is Big Think?  

We are Big Idea Hunters…

We live in a time of information abundance, which far too many of us see as information overload. With the sum total of human knowledge, past and present, at our fingertips, we’re faced with a crisis of attention: which ideas should we engage with, and why? Big Think is an evolving roadmap to the best thinking on the planet — the ideas that can help you think flexibly and act decisively in a multivariate world.

A word about Big Ideas and Themes — The architecture of Big Think

Big ideas are lenses for envisioning the future. Every article and video on bigthink.com and on our learning platforms is based on an emerging “big idea” that is significant, widely relevant, and actionable. We’re sifting the noise for the questions and insights that have the power to change all of our lives, for decades to come. For example, reverse-engineering is a big idea in that the concept is increasingly useful across multiple disciplines, from education to nanotechnology.

Themes are the seven broad umbrellas under which we organize the hundreds of big ideas that populate Big Think. They include New World Order, Earth and Beyond, 21st Century Living, Going Mental, Extreme Biology, Power and Influence, and Inventing the Future.

Nina DiSesa: Well, men are stuff thinkers, they are will go into a meeting with a frequency idea of how that meeting is going to go, because they no they have the goods or they, they are just confident and so what they hear is what they expect to here, they remember what they expect here anything that goes against what their expectation or they kind of forget. So I would say its like bla bla bla good dog bla bla bla they just remember good dog, and they forget what happened before and what happened after. Actually I don’t really see anything wrong with that, all my point is that make sure you have some really strong women in the room too, because while the man is going to very focused, and very determined and very fourth right and get the job done. The woman is reading the room, and she is noticing, they didn’t make eye contact he stared at my collar bone. client isn’t happy, call and so you have to have both those disciplines coming back with a deep breath, otherwise you are only going to get the most optimistic results from a man who is the scuff thinker.
