EP 3: How Your Mind is Designed, The PCM
If you were to draw your entire mind on paper, how would you draw it out? Would it be a Venn diagram? A mind map? In this episode, I introduce the Polymathic Compartment Model: it separates our interests into compartments and aims to explain how we view the world. Used to describe our polymathic tendencies, I go into detail about the effects of Mental Models, Emotional Intelligence and Character on our interests. Some of us like to focus on one or two fields, while others like a broader range. Enjoy! -N
