Different functioning of our left and right side of the brain
Our brain consists of two halves (left and right) which are interconnected through the corpus callosum. The body and the brain are cross connected. Signals from the right side of the body are processed in the left side of the brain, and signals from the left side of the body are processed in the right side of the brain.
Left side of the brain
The left side of the brain features characteristics like logical thinking, serial processing, analytic skills, abstraction, reason, numbers and language.
Right side of the brain
The right side of the brain features characteristics like parallel processing of information, the fullness, emotion, format, music, art and visual.
Creative thinking means one alternates between using the right and left side of the brain. In such a way that images and analysis are intermittent. Creative thinking is about the teamwork of both sides of the brain, through the corpus callosum.
Yes, I know it is not really true…
but it is a way of looking, a metaphor you can use to add or change meaning (NLP framing), to help yourself or someone else to obtain more personal freedom.
