Did you know that networking can make you smarter?

It’s true, networking makes you smarter, according to Andrea Kuszewski, a research scientist in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and psychology, focusing on creativity, intelligence, motivation, sociopathy, and extreme-altruism.

In a recent article in Scientific American, Kuszewski explains that networking is one of the best ways to maximize your cognitive potential:

“By exposing yourself to new people, ideas, and environments, you are opening yourself up to new opportunities for cognitive growth. Being in the presence of other people who may be outside of your immediate field gives you opportunities to see problems from a new perspective, or offer insight in ways that you had never thought of before.

“Learning is all about exposing yourself to new things and taking in that information in ways that are meaningful and unique—networking with other people is a great way to make that happen. I’m not even going to get into the social benefits and emotional well-being that is derived from networking as a factor here, but that is just an added perk.”

About Andrea Kuszewski

In addition to being a research scientist, Kuszewski is also a behavior therapist and consultant, treating children and families with autism spectrum disorders, specializing in Aspergers Syndrome.

She is an Affiliate Scholar with the IEET, a public speaker, and a freelance science writer, appearing in publications such as Scientific American, Discover Magazine, Qualcomm Spark, and WIRED UK, among others.

Kuszewski is now working with a soon-to-launch mental health startup, Optilife, which utilizes the latest research in neuroscience and psychology to create a personalized psychological and emotional health tool that trains in areas such as cognitive enhancement, creativity, resilience, and emotional agility, as well as teaching how and why your brain functions the way it does, and how to use that knowledge to develop long-term habits of continuous growth and self-improvement.
