Brian E. Walsh PhD, author of Unleashing Your Brilliance
However, when actually testing I was completely unable to come to a conclusion as to whether I am right or left brained - just to start with! And although many of the factors are obvious, the few that are not left me with too many points of uncertainty. I was unable to conclude and that left me dissatisfied. I think perhaps I would need to see a professional in the field to get to the bottom but I doubt I will. Maybe I am just very balanced. ;-)
To a certain extent the book can be read "backwards" - that is seeing which profile feels most like you and then checking if the dominance profile seems likely to match.
Recently, I attended a workshop in New York City where the author, Carla Hannaford accompanied by her muscially talented husband, Mr. Ahti, presented a workshop where this material was one of the topics discussed.
In the workshop also book, Ms. Hannaford talked about how these dominance profiles can help us better understand how teachers and students naturally learn. A comparison was also discussed on how the school system in the US has designed its learning processes to accommodate certain learning styles. This has meant that other people who are of different learning styles--are often labeled unfavorably..the book goes more into detail. The book also explains step by step how to determine your own and others learning dominance profiles, gives descriptions of each, and suggestions on how to help yourself or others during times of stress also how to compensate.
For example, with my profile, when I am stressed, I am limited with hearing, seeing & talking..but I move. So when I am stressed I do not talk and require movement. With learning, I am a kinestetic learner..which means a combination of hearing (lecture), pictures (visuals) and doing (applying through movement) what I am learning. An example of what I learned I can do to improve my learning is to write lists of what I need to do..also sit towards the back of the room where I can move without disturbing the others in the class.
These profiles can also be used in families or between couples to better understand each others' learning and communication styles and how to help the other person during time of stress.Read more ›
