Why It Doesn't Have To Be A Disadvantage
February 05, 2018
For some people, being dyslexic could be considered a disadvantage but many highly successful people don’t see it that way. Pip Jamieson, founder of The Dots, explores why it could actually be an advantage…
Until very recently, many sperm banks rejected donors that had dyslexia – it was perceived to be a disability. However, with 40 per cent of self-made millionaires being dyslexic – including Richard Branson, Anita Roddick, Steve Jobs, Jo Malone and countless more – this has made me reflect on my own dyslexia. I’ve found that the skills that dyslexia amplifies are in fact superpowers, not only if you want to be an entrepreneur – but for finding a job more generally.
We all know the robots are coming! Soon machines will drive, serve customers, and do our accounts and legal work. But many dyslexic traits are far harder to automate, which is brilliant for our future employability. Here’s why:
One of the reasons so many successful entrepreneurs are dyslexic is we’re highly creative. Crucially, creativity is the skill-set that is least susceptible to automation. A recent study by NESTA and Oxford University found that 86 per cent of 'highly creative' workers are found to be at low or no risk of automation. While the same study found that creative occupations are more future-proof to technologies like machine learning and mobile robotics. We see this first hand with the thousands of companies that use The Dots to find talent, putting creative skills (and therefore also dyslexic people) at the top of their wish list.
Humans are the most sophisticated machines that exist! We take in millions of inputs a day and synthesize it into gut feelings. Machines really struggle with basic common sense, and when it comes to human intuitions, well that’s an even bigger leap – I guess this is why Steve Jobs famously said “intuition is more powerful than intellect!” The brilliant thing about being dyslexic is we tend to have above average intuition. Why? Because although it can be hard to focus in on individual words, people with dyslexia have better peripheral vision than most, meaning we quickly take in a whole scene, see outer edges and the big picture. In essence, more data flows into our brains each day, which we can then synthesis into intuition.

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
-- Albert Einstein
Today life in the business world is frantic, fast paced and forever changing. Then, just when you think you’ve got a handle on it, it’s changed again. We have to be able to turn on a dime, and to think and react quickly like a Formula One race car driver trying to avoid a crash. For most, this frantic pace causes tension, anxiety and overwhelm, as brain drain settles in just glancing at the long list of things to do and goals to accomplish. Thier senses shift into overload. Their mental bandwidth is short fused and they feel depleted.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
Quantum Business success is driven by the ability to think fluidly outside of the box, while quickly, wisely and confidently executing business decisions, with creativity and innovation--slipstreaming and pivoting-- all while acclimating and readjusting to breakneck speed changes in industry landscapes.
Welcome to the world of entrepreneurs with dyslexia who excel and thrive in this environment.
Many entrepreneurs will no doubt appreciate Pip Jamieson’s article because they too may suffer from dyslexia, and over the years they may have come to recognize a few of the gifts and characteristics from the recent Yale University research that have helped them to use it to their advantage.
Dyslexia studies show that 35% per cent of US entrepreneurs have dyslexic traits: 22% report as highly dyslexic or extremely dyslexic-yet less than 1% of corporate managers reported as dyslexic.
Dr. Julie Logan, Professor Emeritus of Entrepreneurship, at Cass Business School in London is an expert in entrepreneurship and leadership. Her research shows entrepreneurs in the UK are twice as likely to be dyslexic as the general public, and three times as likely in the US. Indeed, 19 per cent of UK entrepreneurs are dyslexic compared to just one per cent of corporate managers. In the same study, the research suggests that dyslexic entrepreneurs may be more comfortable in a start-up or a serial entrepreneurial role so that they are able to do things in their own way.
There are so many self made millionaires and billionaires who have dyslexia. Here is just a short list of a few:
Henry Ford - Ford Motor Company
Bill Gates - Microsoft
Carlos Slim - Telecom
Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway, Investor, Top 5 Richest People In The World
Nelson Rockefeller - Businessman, Philanthropist, Public Servant, and Politician
Steve Jobs - Apple
Bill Hewlett - Hewlett-Packard Company (HP)
Charles Schwab - Charles Schwab Corporation, Investment Banker
Sir Richard Branson - Virgin Group
Ingvar Kamprad - Founder of IKEA
John Chambers – Cisco
Ted Turner - Founder of Cable News Network (CNN)
Dyslexia – The Genius Gene – The Power of Thinking Differently
There’s long list of talented people who are extraordinarily successful and who also have dyslexia--from artists, visionaries and inventors--to presidents, prime ministers and entrepreneurs--all have used their dyslexia to overcome any barriers that may have been put in their way.
Adrian Atkinson, a prominent business psychologist, did a comprehensive study on the impact of dyslexia and business, and he summarized it best: "Most people who make a million have difficult childhoods or have been frustrated in a major way. Dyslexia is one of the driving forces behind that."
People with dyslexia have an incredible fortitude for perseverance and they never give up. Dyslexia itself is a catalyst for success, forcing them to develop and utilize hidden talents. QDNA®, Quantum DNA Acceleration® provides the everyday tools to optimize these talents and to use them to accelerate success.
Decode, Recode, Rewire, Reprogram, Reconstruct & Retrain Your Brain For Success™
At the heart of who we are lie our personal beliefs. Our beliefs shape the goals that we reach for and the dreams we dare to hold. Our greatest successes and ultimate failures will depend entirely on the nature of our beliefs. Some beliefs are shallow and sit at the surface of our everyday thinking, however, they still negatively impact us if they are not immediately stopped. Others are more deeply rooted, not only in our subconscious, but held at the genetic and cellular levels of our deepest core. They provide a blueprint that can be decoded, recoded, rewired, reconstructed and reprogrammed--from our health to relationships; from our lifestyle to business. When we become aware of what we believe we can then better understand our life experiences and make the necessary changes to remove limiting beliefs that prevent us from having business success.
