Rich mental model repository is conductive of insight
Many argue that generalist individuals with broad knowledge, rather than specialists with deep knowledge, are more likely to yield breakthroughs. However, this is likely caused by a repeated and sustained scaffolding process driven by rich conceptual cues, rather than lucky obscure paradigms intersecting by chance, isolated glimpses into other conceptual silos. Multiple perspectives are essential in avoiding blindspots. Therefore, a rich mental model repository is conductive of insight.
