Cognitive diversity and the value of reading December 15, 2008

Following up on my last post about diverse thinkers vs. specialized thinkers and the benefits of diversity, I found this quote in an interview with Charlie Munger, Warren Buffet’s business partner:

Q: What are your work styles like?
A: We have certain things in common. We both hate to have too many forward commitments in our schedules. We both insist on a lot of time being available almost every day to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. We read and think. So Warren and I do more reading and thinking and less doing than most people in business [emphasis mine].
