The importance of operacy in lateral and parallel thinking

Myopia underrates experience and overemphasises knowledge, but both carry equal importance. Experience often proving a more desirable asset.

Some people value knowledge but lack real -world exposure; others are worldly, but lack knowledge. Neither characteristic suggests a greater skill and talent. However, both personality types are critical to success, to facilitate high-quality lateral and parallel thinking. Operacy (‘action thinking’) ranks as important as literacy and numeracy.

A knowledgeable and experienced all-rounder maintains equilibrium, an optimal bookishness and hands on knowledge and experience combination.
