IRISH RESEARCH BY IMI - 2010
What are the ‘opinion formers’ in Ireland saying about Right-Brained Thinking in 2010?
What VIP’s are saying about New Research launched by the Irish Management Institute (IMI) in 2010!
The research is validated by the Oxford Psychologist’s Press and was based on a battery of tests including Myers Briggs Type Indicator, the 16PF, and Decision Style Inventory, the Tolerance for Ambiguity Scale and the Auckland Individualism and Collectivism Scale.
Dr Tom McCarthy – IMI CEO says:
“A consistent pattern of results emerges from this research. This pattern indicates a substantial trend towards what is considered right-brain dominated cognition. This is the building block underpinning innovation”
Andrew McLaughlin – IMI Senior Management Specialist and main author of the report says:
“Economic prosperity depends on such individuals doing their own thing and having a supportive environment. The form such support might take includes a valuing of such independent thought and action from the school system up to national enterprise policy and support structures. To support the entrepreneur we need to remind ourselves of the qualities that are needed to be successful. These are qualities that are deeply embedded in the Irish mind. For the first time we have a good description of what these qualities are. The next step is to nurture and support those who carry the qualities that we need to compete successfully in the conceptual age”
Barry O’Leary – IDA Ireland CEO welcomed the research findings and says:
“There is something inherent in the Irish way of innovating, of doing business which has made Ireland so successful”
Ex Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation – Batt O’Keeffe TD says:
“As Ireland enters economic recovery, we must now harness the core competencies among our people that can drive entrepreneurship and innovation. The findings of this report show that Irish people have the kind of characteristics needed to build the ‘smart’ economy, in partnership with Government, as we seek to create higher value jobs for tomorrow’s workers. As Minister, I want to focus, in particular, on innovation so that we maximise opportunities to turn our academic research into marketplace products and give Irish entrepreneurs a competitive edge over others”
Right-Brained Thinking a Quality Feature of IRISH people…
Did you know the LEFT side of the brain controls the RIGHT side of the body?
Conversely, the RIGHT side of the brain controls the LEFT side of the body.
Does that mean LEFT-HANDED people are controlled by the R I G H T side of the brain?
Think about that!
