July 5, 2022Dyslexia is not a neurological disorder or even an impairment, but rather a concession for having cognitive strengths in exploration, big-picture thinking, creativity, and problem-solving that have contributed to human survival amid changing environments.

This insight comes from a new study published in Frontiers in Psychology that finds an association between the learning difference and “an explorative bias.”1The researchers found that people with dyslexia (explorers) have strengths in experimentation, innovation, and searching for the unknown.

In contrast, people without dyslexia (exploiters) have strengths in efficiency, refinement, selection, and in what is known.
