We lost singing sensation David Bowie (#13 FCIR) just a few days ago to cancer, and yesterday we mourned the loss of actor Alan Rickman (#13 FCIR) at the young age of 69 (also cancer), known for his deep, amazing voice and brilliant acting talent.  One quote by Mr. Rickman, made several years ago, is all too accurate when it comes to inborn design.

“Talent is an accident of genes – and a responsibility.”

Yes, raw, inherent talent is a matter of genes (that can be perfected with responsibility), and as such, each and every Brain Type is amazingly talented. In Rickman’s case, acting talent was inherent in his genetic makeup.

Veteran BTInsiders know full well that the #13 dominates Hollywood, and the reasons are quite obvious. They are Front brain dominant, giving them the energy to face the world. They are dominant Conceptuals, allowing them to escape the world of reality (and who they are) and become completely new characters. They excel with Inanimate reasoning, generating quick, sharp wit and intelligence (CI ‘owl’). Lastly, they are foremost Right brained dominant, which is a must in the crazy world of acting. Flexibility and spontaneity are areas where the Right brain hemisphere thrives, not to mention the fact that this cerebral locale is largely responsible for processing and appreciating the arts (colors, music, etc.).

We close with a final quote from Rickman.

“I do take my work seriously and the way to do that is not to take yourself too seriously.”

How’s that for the lobe of latitude?
