Thinking & Learning - Which side of the brain do you use?

Today, two groups joined together to do a class called thinking and learning. You find out which side of your brain is more dominant, and how you think. But, as many of the teachers hastened to tell us, the results aren’t set in stone (which made quite a few people relieved!)

We used something called the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument to find out whether we were more Rational, Experimental, Safekeeping or Feeling. Basically, whether you are logical and like numbers, take risks and like surprises, are organised and always punctual, or are sensitive to others and emotional.

The results were, to say the least, interesting. Lots of people who thought they were left-brainers were in fact right, and vica versa. Personally, I thought I was very creative, but my results showed I’m a lot more rational than I myself credit for.

All in all, it was a fun class (or at least compared to the stuff I’d be doing at home!)
