The Technical Network

The technical network is researched in neuroscience as the task-negative network. The task-negative network is associated with mindfulness in the sense that you are aware what you are looking at and what it is.

The technical network is associated with paying attention to an approaching car and moving away from it. It’s associated with physics and understanding and predicting actions around you. The technical network is also associated with logical thought.

We believe the technical network is related to being a thinking type. We also think it’s related to practical and analytical intelligence.

You use the technical network in voluntary, conscious movements, for example when you move away from the car approaching you. When you use the technical network, activity in the storytelling network decreases.
