Description

Once a month on a Friday, The Koa Club will host an online Huddle focused on women supporting other women in their professional and personal endeavors.

Join us in fellowship with other professional women to foster community, empower each other and provide ongoing collaborative opportunities, which we believe to be crucially important, especially during these particularly challenging times. We want to build a culture where women can get inspired, support, learn, share resources and information, and have a safe place to ask questions and be vulnerable, authentic and open.

Each month will focus on a different topic. For May, we wanted to tackle the topic of “Let Your Creative Juices Flowing (Even If You Swear You Are Left-Brained).”

In the article Left brain vs. right brain: Characteristics, functions, and myths (medicalnewstoday.com), it explained  that: “The brain’s left half is primarily responsible for speech and abstract thinking. It also controls the right side of the body. The right side of the brain is responsible for image processing, spatial thinking, and movement in the left side of the body.”

It further goes to say that “In the 1960s, the neurobiologist Roger W. Sperry suggested that all people have one-half of their brain, which is more dominant and determines their personality, thoughts, and behavior…According to the dated theory, left-brained people are more:

  • analytical
  • logical
  • detail- and fact-oriented
  • numerical
  • likely to think in words

By contrast, the theory suggests that right-brained people are more:

  • creative
  • free-thinking
  • able to see the big picture
  • intuitive
  • likely to visualize more than think in words.

The article further states that “Research suggests that the left brain vs. right brain theory is not correct. While specific parts of the brain do dominate the processing of different mental tasks, there is typically no overall dominant side.”

So, if you have always thought of yourself analytical person or a creative type, according to recent research, it does not necessarily mean you are either left brain or right brain dominant. It is likely inaccurate to connect certain personality traits to one side of your brain. For example, I have spent years believing that I am left-brained dominant, so I am not surprised that I am organized and logical in anything I do and that I cannot draw anything better than a 3-year-old. But over the years, I found that I was actually quite creative in other ways but am almost apologetic for being creative since I thought I cannot be as I am a “left-brain” person. Have you encountered the same on your end? Let’s chat about how this left-brain and right brain myths have locked us into behaviors that are limiting and how do we get free of those constraints.
