Can Leaning In, as advocated by Sheryl Sandberg create a "Kinder, Gentler Nation" as called for by former President George H.W. Bush?
If you follow the Yellow Brick Road to my freelance article published in the CBS 60 Minutes comments section, in the context of men Leaning In, I reference a quote from a speech given by former President George H.W. Bush Senior, who called for "a kinder gentler nation". I outline cognitive physiological reasons why Leaning In can help create "A kinder, gentler nation"
The following is a generalized hypothetical construct of cognitive neurological brain activity:
The condensation of environmental data in a small area of the prefrontal lobe cortex is associated with greater neuron electrical cortical stimulation. Greater neuron electrical cortical stimulation as a consequence of condensation of environmental data in a small area of the prefrontal lobe cortex historically allowed men to be quick and fast while hunting for game and foraging for food.
The condensation of environmental data in a small area of the prefrontal lobe cortex for easy fast access can cause men to be more emotionally reactive and volatile. The masculine trait of being more emotionally reactive and volatile is a consequence of greater neuron electrical chemical pulsars traveling back and forth on motor and sensory nerve pathways to and from the muscular-skeletal system.
Mathematical reasoning and logical deduction evolved as a cognitive action within a small concentrated area of the male prefrontal lobe as a consequence of sensory processing of environmental data. The masculine role of hunting, fishing, foraging for food, growing crops, etc involves sensory processing of numbers, lines, angles, distance, height, weight, logistics associated with moving objects, and other geometric properties.
Women have known for centuries that men use very small areas of their brain during the process of neurological cortical stimulation of localized areas of the Prefrontal cortex while engaged in mathematical reasoning and logical deductive thinking.
