Social: Post #4--Social Thinking
Social Thinking: Being what the author calls a “mindreader” (mentalizing) allows us to think about what others are thinking. Social thinking switches us from information consumers to info sharers, or what the author calls “Information DJs,” spreading the word. Social pain keeps us close to others for support, and mindreading keeps us living/working well with others. Our big mistake: Not appreciating the value of our social thinking power—getting more social is the secret to being more productive and happier.
