What is Insight and How to Have More?

What is insight? A young patent clerk can tell you. His name was Albert Einstein. Albert liked to daydream. He thought about life, the universe, and everything. But mostly about the universe. He wanted insight on how it worked, and he had one: E=MC^2. He revolutionized the world and gave us nuclear power. He also doomed every gifted American middle schooler for the next century to torment, as bullying jocks would pin them in a neck lock and say “You think you’re so smart. You think you’re some kind of Einstein or something?”


Insights are those “A-ha!” moments. They’re the instances when you suddenly understand something, or discover something, or truly believe something you just used to give lip service to. I recently sat down with Charlie Kiefer, author of the forthcoming book The Art of Insight, to learn about insight and how it works.
