An extract from this month’s post on careerresilience, my thoughts on how we might stumble across the problems we are best suited to solve or the situations where we are most likely to shine.
So here is the extract:
Today’s post has been inspired by a game called the Cortex Challenge, a Brain party game, given to us as a Christmas gift last year. A game that requires each player to compete in several different problem-solving tasks so that ultimately the winner is the first person to accumulate the four pieces needed to complete a brain.
But what intrigued me most about this card based game was the range and variety of problems and tasks that were a part of it. With each of the eight categories, listed below requiring the player to process and manipulate information in a different way. Either through touch, logical reasoning, pattern recognition or through the use of your short-term memory.
- Finding the correct pathway between two items via a maze.
- Being the first to identify a word written in its own colour.
- Completing a physical coordination task
- Identifying and then being the first to name the one item that is duplicated
- Recognising which item is repeated most frequently from a jumble of items
- Using logical reasoning to select the one shape that fits the ‘gap’
- Using touch to identify an object
- Memorising and then recalling all the objects shown on a card
