This Is Your Brain on Entrepreneurship
by Kevin Evers | 3:00 AM December 27, 2013
New research shows us exactly how an entrepreneur’s brain works. When a problem first presents itself, entrepreneurs — founders in particular — are quicker to react and are less inhibited than non-entrepreneurs. In the latter stages of the decision-making process, they also tend to think through the problem much more intensely. These characteristics, both learned and inherited, suit them well. They’re able to assess opportunities quickly — gut instincts — but also have the patience and fortitude to wait until their uncertainties clear up.
