The Brain

Before we can seek to understand the various kinds of intelligence, we need to understand how the brain works.

Lobes of the Brain

Blue Region - Frontal Lobe
Yellow Region - Parietal Lobe
Green Region - Temporal Lobe
Pink Region - Occipital Lobe

The brain has multiple purpose:

  • It is an emotional control organ, central to the bodies hormonal system
  • It is an energy control station, receiving and transmitting signals from and to various parts of the body
  • It is a repository, serving as a memory store for our past experiences and learnings
  • It is a diagnostic tool, helping us define and resolve logical dilemnas

There has been much study on the brain, with the following outcomes:

The brain is made up of two hemispheres – the left logical side, and the right creative side:

  • Left – analytical thinking, logic, reason, language and mathematics
  • Rightcreative, sensory, intuitive, patterns, images, rhythms

The brain possesses 'duality'. The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body; the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body.

In most people, one side of the brain is dominant over the other. In terms of evolution, the right brain [creativity required to survive] dominated over the left brain.


Purpose of Each Layer

There are three layers to the brain:

  • Reptilian – inner brain possess the autonomous response triggers
  • Mammalian – middle
  • Neocortex – outer ‘thinking cap’

Regardless of how you slice or dice it – our ability to function largely depends upon our capacity to utilise the various functional areas of the brain.
