InTouch with the Brain – Right and Left Hemispheres

The theory of the structure and functioning of the mind suggests that the two different sides of the brain control two different “modes” of thinking. It also suggests that each of us prefers one mode over the other.

Left Hemisphere

Logical, linear, Literal, Practical language, making sense, social self, spoken/lived narrative, detail monitoring, analytic problem-solving, fact accumulation, chalkboard of the mind, working memory, adding to regulation, handling familiar, moderate levels of stress, more defined neocortical columns

Right Hemisphere

Visual, attunement, voice quality/eye gaze, touch and gesture, circuits of attachment, integrated map of body, effective experience, experience of self, beginning of regulation, empathetic resonance, implicit memory, felt autobiographical narrative, intuition/morality, metaphorical language, rapid processing of novelty, sever levels of stress, more integrated neocortical columns

The intent of this article is in the context of communication. Values & Empathy integration in communication for transforming disconnection into connection.
