The Left and Right Brain Hemisphere
Our brain is divided into two hemispheres - left and right, through which we process information. Although both sides of the brain can learn, reason and think, but will use different strategies based on our dominant brain side.
We all learn and think in different ways. In a same institution you will find evidence of students with different learning and cognitive styles.
What is learning style? It is the sum of habitual ways that individuals develop in responding to experiences and situations.
People with dominant left brain use analytical approach to problem solving. They use set patterns and sequences to understand a skill, beginning with paying more attention to inner details. They like specifics, set time and systematic approaches. They are less intuitive and more practical.
Individuals with dominant right side use holistic way to solve a problem. They don’t break down an issue in parts or go by rules to arrive at a solution. Instead they view the situation at a larger scale and grasp the problem directly without analysing in detail. They are more intuitive and less of an organiser. They are dreamers and do not work on predefined time and rules.
“While Global learners understand the concept before they concentrate on details, Analytical learners concentrate on series of facts before gradually understanding the concept.”
A global learner understands subjects better when he learns through short stories, humour or anecdotes. They learn through information that is interesting and related to real lives.
An analytical learner understands subjects better when he learns them through step by step process. They learn through measurable data and facts. Here’s the difference between Analytical thinker and Holistic thinker.
But there are individuals who have neither dominating left brain nor dominating right brain. They fall in the middle and will demonstrate characteristics of both analytical thinkers and holistic thinkers.
They are perfect recipe for great leaders and entrepreneurs as they use the logic from left side and intuition from the right side to solve problems.
However, skill development courses and personality development trainings may help students to balance out both their left and right hemisphere significantly.
