Left and Right Brain

I want to take you away from the 8 types of IQ to another concept which you probably heard of.

Our brain is divided into 2 halfs, the left brain and the right brain.

The left brain deals mainly with:

Logic and Analytical
Detail oriented
words and language
Reality based

While the right brain deals with:

"Big picture" oriented
symbols and images
Fantasy based

Most children are highly creative (right brain) before entering school. But because our educational systems place a higher value on left brain skills such as mathematics, logic and language than it does on drawing or using our imagination, all of the children will be "forced" to use more of their left brain.

Someone who is more "right brained" will therefore find it harder to do well in school.

To add to the problem, schools teach using mostly left brain methods. It is therefore essential that your children study using both their right and left brain to overcome this problem.

This will also help to make up for any deficiencies that they might have with their verbal, logical, interpersonal and intrapersonal IQ.
