i dont think thats right, local rebel. The brain is divided by the left and right hemisphere.
Language, reading, writing.
Analysis of text and phrases.
Linear - step by step.
Stolid off-by-heart learning from isolated individual-information.
imagination in pictures.
Art - Music - Dance.
Sound, Tone, language melody.
Rhythm of language.
Not linear - integrated (thoughts etc)
No one can live without either of these hemispheres. Most people however, have a dominance of one side, this can explain a lot of characteristics of humans, and a lot of stereotypes (people should stop stereotyping, its like racism) are the ones that are so simply (in films) divided by left and right.
Without those "Imaginative pictures" we cannot understand anything. We listen to people and and bring up past pictures and experiences to comprehend what is said or shown or smelt, etc.
The creative and imaginative side isnt when we use our brain less, but use different part of it, the right hemisphere.
I went to a very famous institution in Germany - Stuttgart, where they examine people's brain waves, I had pretty well trained brain apparently, although I havnt managed to prove that, lol. I knew I was right brain dominant from the start of my life, therefore I have trouble with arguments and to show my actual point in writing and speech, and I think it would be an insult to me and all other right brain dominant people to say that we our using less of our brain.
If, for example, we hear a doctor talking about Obstipation or any other medical state, we cannot always pick pictures of our past expiriences, and thefore do not really understand what the heck they are on about. A LOT OF PEOPLE, after hearing something like that, just think they are stupid and chew on theyre self esteem, while really there is no need to.
There is such a thing, that is famous in pschology, as a Blind-Spot. This is when a person cannot see something for they cannot take any past expiriences and pictures to form that object (Thats all I know about Blind-Spot, Im sure you guys are gonna have some criticism about it, and I dont know any arguments against those criterea, cause I see some dilemmas too (what happens at birth for example), but i still believe it.)
But no one can do anything without training in the left brain too, just imagine that.
Search the net for "brain hemispheres" and you will get a lot of sites that are similar to my point, but a lot of sites have a different order of the characteristics that I mention above, I found this one, I my and all my families expiriences to be the most accurate in our point of view.
There are different brain waves that show different kinds of power (this might be the reason of what you though local rebel).
There are alpha waves, omega waves and so on.
Local rebel - I think we do pick up information faster. If we get more info chucked at us, we become more custom to picking up things, and therefore keep on learning faster. There is a point thought, when there is too much learning going on and you cant take no more.
