We are fast moving into a business and economic?age where to be successful people and businesses will need to use?their “right brain” a whole lot more. So far, the world we live in is very?left brained. This has been heavily ingrained into our business and social culture coming from the industrial, technology and information ages.?Now we are moving into?a conceptual age?where creativity and human engagement will be the central focus.
The left brain can be simply described as the rational and?thinking side of our brain. People who are left brained are very logical, literal, process and IQ focused.?The?right brain is the?more emotional side of our brain.?These people will be more naturally creative, empathetic, non-linear and?EQ focused.?As you can imagine, many “right brainers” have been shut down because this has not been how our society has been built.
The key point to remember is that success will require both the left and right brain. Not just one side. As people, we all tend to be naturally wired in our personality one way or the other. The right brained people will have behavioral styles that are creative, patient and spontaneous. Whereas the left brained people will have behavioral styles that are more anchored, fast paced and planned. We now have measurement of left and right brained behaviors in our DNA Behavior?profiles because of the importance of this issue. Click Here to learn more about the DNA Behavior Profiles.
Are you naturally left or right brained? Learning this will help you cope in the “new behavioral economy”.
We want to really encourage people to know who they naturally are so they can?succeed in?the new economy. The key for the left brainers will be to accept and embrace the right brainers, and even further opening yourself up to adapting your behavior. However, the right brainers should never forget they will need to use the left brain to help get results.
A good read on this is “A Whole New Mind” by Daniel Pink.
