On episode 7, Alen and Leon speak with the chief-editor of Third Factor magazine, and former CIA analyst, Jessie Mannisto. We talk about the necessity and consequences of divergent thinking and the significance of non-conformity in politics. Also, how we can use the ideas behind the concept of positive disintegration to foster unity in our communities.
Jessie Mannisto has worn many professional hats, including that of leadership analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, where she wrote psycho biographic assessments of foreign leaders for US policymakers. In 2011, she was the Google Policy Fellow at the American Library Association, where she analyzed digital technologies’ impact on the quality of our lives and our ability to think deeply.
