According to Howard Gardner the synthesizing mind is important for "selecting crucial information from the copious amounts of information available" (154). In my experience, it is difficult to know which information is crucial.

Howard Gardner argues that schools should cultivate all 5 minds for the future:
It is up to the educational system as a whole -- the educational systems in the broadest sense -- to ensure that the ensemble of minds is cultivated. In one sense, this is a job of synthesis--making sure that all five kinds of minds are developed. But equally, it is an ethical obligation: in the years ahead, societies will not survive--let along thrive--unless as citizens we respect and cultivate the quintet of minds valorized here. (165)
It is important to non emphasize too much one mind over the other, but the different qualities they bring and how they work together.
