This would be good to have on WrongPlanet. There may be copyright issues.

I suppose this is interesting, esp the bits about cattle, but I'm missing the overall point of the article.
It must be more than merely 'people think 3 ways differently'.
Unless it's private musings.

To be fair, I don't know much of Temple Grandin (even had to look up gender) but she's apparently pretty important.
I reckon I best read up the wiki article so I don't commit some social-political faux pas, and get assassinated.

Very interesting, especially the part about origami (to me). I consider myself a visual thinker and have problems with math as she does, but I also excel at origami and wish I could understand the mathematical portion/patterns of it outside of the visual.
