In this brain type keynote by Malcolm Gladwell, he establishes the two types of human minds as creative and logical. He explains a major difference between the particular thought processes of each and offers advice for maintaining a creative mind.

Gladwell explains that a creative mind is a messy and chaotic place. He believes this is the case because they appreciate and see the value in every idea and concept. This is because they know how unpredictable the creative process is and so they don't want to undervalue any information. The opposite can be said about logical-minded individuals, because they need to stay focused on the task at hand and not get distracted. They only have time and space for information that is relevant.

Malcolm's brain type keynote concludes by stating creative types need to embrace this mindset and use it to their advantage no matter how much it feels like it contrasts their natural instincts.
