Creative insights as psychological scientists call them were what conveyed an important discovery in the science of genetics to Nobel laureate Barbara McClintock the melody of a Beatles ballad to Paul McCartney and an understanding of the cause of human suffering to the Buddha But these moments of clarity are not given only to the famous Anyone can have them   In The Eureka Factor John Kounios and Probably everyone has experienced the thrill of a sudden and dramatic change in thought which connects ideas in a moment This moment of insight is not only exciting and somewhat addicting but also rarely comes when called the author s here compare it to a cat which is not a poor analogy Dr Kunious and Beeman s book attempts to break apart the nature of insightful thinking and the ways in which it differs from analytical thought processes Written from the perspective of two neuroscientists insight is defined as the sudden comprehension of an idea or solution rather than the progressive development of one Drawing from the neuroimaging experiments of now classical insight problems such as the remote associates test RAT and perceptual Gestalt tests the authors widen their discussion to the ways in which insight operates in the world and how people choose to seek it outInsightful thinking is favored heavily by the authors for not only its rush but its ingenuity creativity and the ability to break the mold Apart from retelling the stories about the moment of clarity experienced by individuals the best takeaway for me was the role that attentional saliency plays in the development of new ideas This book is pleasant to read the whole way through but although heavily sourced the information is presented in of a narrative than scientific writing style Being written by scientists the book lacks the embellishment which comes from casually misrepresenting the surety of field but being written for the public also lacks the rigor that scientists appreciate There are no strong prescriptive measures to detail how to discover new insights and also no strong or clear scientific basis established for their nature In a sense this book walks the perimeter around the meaning and mechanics of insight without tying together everything for the reader Perhaps the author s themselves haven t fully put together what they are trying to say and just need a little bit of a push before it comes to them 355
