Your brain processes and reacts to certain situations in many different ways. This is directly due to either being left brain or right brain. What is left brain or right brain you ask?
People use either side to approach solutions to a variety of problems with different outcomes.
People who are left brain tend to approach each problem with an analytical point of view. Right brain thinkers tend to arise at solutions based on their understanding of relationships. We will discuss how each side of the brain can have negative or positive impacts of solutions, and will give detail information on each side.(Dr. J. Robert dew, 1996)
The brain-dominance theory is the study of the relationship between the brains left and right hemispheres. Roger Sperry a noble prize winner first initiated the study in 1996 and has found that each side of the brain processes information quite differently. Most people don’t even realize they only use a certain side of their brain to come to a solution for a problem. Left brain thinkers tend to focus more on data and collecting all information very thoroughly before making a decision. On the other hand, right brain thinkers tend to be quite the opposite. Those who use their right hemisphere of the brain likes to jump to solutions using the perceptions they have already known. Right brain thinkers are more of the laid back, mind relaxing and tend to arrive at solutions using brainstorming and/or uses the cause and effect diagram. Right brain thinkers also identify root causes of problems by using the five-why method. Right brain thinkers also tend to use understanding of relationships to help determine a possible solution outcome and also views quality as a process for continuous improvement in which controls are only temporary. Being a right brain thinker may be negative because the person does not collect all
