Session XX: Power Keynote: The 4 Core Human Traits
We are all born Creative, indeed we played with the box much more than the toy. We use our Intuition every day. Indeed we have 100bn neurons in our first brain and 100m in our second brain, our gut. We were all born Curious, asking Why? Why? And Why? Again. Then we go to school/work to be told to stop asking questions as there is only one right answer so we stop looking for alternatives and we all have an amazing Imagination. Indeed Albert Einstein once said “imagination is much more important than knowledge.
