How Does Neuroplasticity Leabve You As A Shallower Thinker?
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change and adapt in response to experience. This plasticity allows the brain to learn and remember new information, and to physical changes in the environment. But neuroplasticity also has its downside: it can lead to shallower thinking.
Shallow thinking is when you ONLY focus on the most obvious or superficial aspects of something, and you don’t dig deeper to consider other possibilities. This can happen when you’re stuck in a rut, or when you’re resistant to new ideas.
So how does neuroplasticity contribute to shallow thinking?
Neuroplasticity makes it easier for your brain to simplify information and focus on the most basic, surface-level details. This can lead you to ignore important nuances and complexities. And it can make it harder for you to see things from different perspectives.
So if you find yourself thinking shallowly, it might be because your brain is too plastic. To improve your thinking, try to expose yourself to new ideas and different points of view. Challenge your brain to think deeper and make sure to give it plenty of time and space to do so!
