The power of your impact is not about the cognitive voltage you can span but the cognitive ampereage you can conduct. Because humans vary a lot more in the latter than the former.
Cognitive voltage is about the span between the highest and lowest levels of abstraction at which you can think about something. For example repairing cars and doing thermodynamics calculations.
Cognitive amperage is about the raw volume of thinking you can put out. This can vary a lot more across people.
@vgr need more examples 😀
@ykgoon abstractions are free examples cost money 😎
