"The test of a first-rate intellect is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in your head at the same time, and still retain the ability to function." - F. Scott Fitzgerald

In leadership and strategic thinking, the ability to consider multiple perspectives, even conflicting ones, is crucial. It allows for more nuanced understanding and better decision-making. This skill reflects a mind open to exploration, understanding, and synthesis of diverse viewpoints.
