Why is this a Limitless character quality?

  1. First of all, like Von Stauffenberg, it leads you to truly become an independent thinker to rise above the popular ideologies of your society and be an intellectual individual. You are probably not going to attempt to assassinate any dictators, but this character quality will lead you to make a bigger positive impact on the world and your own life.
  2. Second, as regular followers of Limitless Mindset know, we are big advocates of arbitrary systems and tools (Like memory systems and the Socratic method) which force you to think more critically and engage your cognitive faculties more often which is essential to building and maintaining neuroplasticity.
  3. Finally, Von Stauffenberg’s story makes a great historical anecdote in any social setting and playing the devil’s advocate is a great way to liven up any social encounter.
