According to the theory of brain asymmetry,
each of the two hemispheres of the human brain performs differently.
Each side of the brain contributes a different perspective to
our thinking and understanding, and we use our minds best when
both sides are cultivated.
Unfortunately, our society has tended to preference
the functions of the left brain, valuing logic over creativity,
so that the right side is often underdeveloped. Here are some
characteristics of the workings of the two hemispheres, and see
also links below for more information.
