Even during an age of digital upheaval, there aren’t many soapboxes as effective as a full-page ad in the Sunday New York Times. Loyal subscribers and fair-weather purchasers of the July 17 edition of the newspaper, as well as the Cleveland Plain Dealer, found a short letter to the Republican party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Donald…
During my morning run recently, I felt a great sadness as I paused at a 10-foot-high stump of a tree I once knew well. You see, this is the season for Bengaluru’s gulmohars—or mayflower trees—to bloom and lay a flame-orange carpet of flowers. That is what the magnificent, old specimen on the corner of Davis…

Life is about a lot more than something you can perceive with your tiny brains. You can build a number of strategies in your mind, but they prove worthless after a while when life starts taking turns you cannot even remotely predict. Your perception of life changes with your interests and so does your needs. You cannot do anything about it.

For instance, lately I have relied so much on the peculiar theory of our brain lateralization, that i have started attributing all my traits, including fondness of creativity, humming the tone of the song without even remembering the lyrics, to this theory!
Let me introduce you to this flabbergasting theory. According to this theory our brain works with two hemispheres that act independently depending upon the human being’s caliber. The “left-brain thinkers” and the “right- brain thinkers”. Mostly, one side of the brain tends to dominate another.
The left brain thinkers are usually good at logic and maths. they tend to remember things they read or come across. They are good with language, numbers and reasoning. Left brain thinking in other words is verbal and analytical. Also, all the activities that takes place in body’s right side is controlled by left brain hemisphere and vice-versa. In other words, right brain controls muscles on left side of the body and left brain control the muscles on the right side of the body.
The right brain thinkers tend to be more creative, and good at expressing emotions. They can adroitly recognize faces they come across. They focus more on visual, processes information in an intuitive and simultaneous way. They are more intuitive, thoughtful and subjective. Other emotions associated with right brain includes music, colour, images, reading emotions, etc.
Later research has shown that the brain is not nearly as dichotomous as once thought. For example, research has shown that abilities in subjects such as math are strongest when both halves of the brain work together. Today, neuroscientists know that the two sides of the brain collaborate to perform a broad variety of tasks and that the two hemispheres communicate through the corpus callosum.
“No matter how lateralized the brain can get, though, the two sides still work together,” science writer Carl Zimmer explained in an article for Discover magazine. “The pop psychology notion of a left brain and a right brain doesn’t capture their intimate working relationship. The left hemisphere specializes in picking out the sounds that form words and working out the syntax of the phrase, for example, but it does not have a monopoly on language processing. The right hemisphere is more sensitive to the emotional features of language, tuning-in to the slow rhythms of speech that carry intonation and stress.”
However researchers have stated that this theory is still a psychological myth which scientist have just recorded through observation in human brains but, now it has become dramatically distorted and exaggerated. It’s popularity is to an extent people take online tests to find out which type best describes them.
Yet i have had kinda blind faith in it, just because i have found certain idiosyncrasies of people quite relatable to it. For you guys, let me tell you this theory is totally outdated yet you could use it as a point of historical interest to study how brain’s working evolved and use it to analyse your own potential which might help you develop better ways to learn and study.
