Many of us associate knowledge with anything learned through formal education, but did you know that there are two other types of knowledge as well? In this clip from the real estate event, MasterMind Summit 2013, Brian Buffini breaks down the three types of knowledge and explains how they can help you in your business.
“I’ve succeeded in life by valuing the wisdom of experiential knowledge,
especially of other people.” –Brian Buffini
The 3 Types of Knowledge
1. Head knowledge—Traditional education and book learning.
2. Heart knowledge—Intuition or your gut instinct.
3. Experiential—The experiences you’ve gone through or what other people have gone through.
The Greeks called this epignosis, and said that they were all vital. However, while they valued head knowledge, the considered it the foundation of the other two types of knowledge. They deemed heart knowledge more important than head knowledge and experiential knowledge as the most important of the three. Not only is it important to learn from your personal experiences, it’s also important to learn from the experiences of others as well.
