Right Brain / Left Brain
The Right Brain / Left Brain Theory has it that our brain has two hemispheres (commonly called the right brain and left brain) which think in different ways. Our right brain is visual and processes information by looking first at the whole picture then the details. Our left brain is verbal and processes information by looking first at the pieces then putting them together to get the whole. Our right brain is more intuitive; our left is analytical and sequential.
