What are clarity skills?

  • Their quality predicts future growth: Clarity skills are an indicator of the current quality of an individual’s mental network. High Clarity scores indicate a well-connected mental network that provides a solid foundation for future growth.
  • Practicing them supports future growth: Practicing Clarity skills reinforces, prunes, and creates new connections between neurons.
  • Practicing them influences future growth: Consciously practicing clarity skills requires making one’s current understanding of an issue or concept explicit, often exposing gaps or inconsistencies. Gaps and inconsistencies, once recognized, often motivate learning.
