Want to enhance your ability to share and remember?
Tell stories.

Dan Pink shares telling stories in new ways that are fun
and very insightful.  1  2 
“We are our stories…. stories can provide context
enriched by emotion, a deeper understanding of how we
fit in and why that matters.”

Many of our complex, data-filled information does not
make an impact given in that form.  Stories provide the
ability to give context and emotional impact of the
facts, Pink argues. 

In his book Pink quotes Don Norman:
’stories are important cognitive events, for they encapsulate
into one compact package, information, knowledge,
context and emotion.’

Story telling is a recommended way to respond
to interviewers’ questions in revealing
ways.  They are a form that our minds recall.
