    “Usually people divide our brain dominant usage into two. They are either left or right brain. Left brain people are tend to be more analytics, logic, detail, fact-oriented, numeric, and have inclined to think with words, while right brain people are tend to be more creative, think freely, big-picture person, intuitive, and have inclined to visualized more than words,” Nuslih Jamiat, SE, MM. said in front of SBM students on Thursday, 20 February 2020 in Creativity and Innovation class.

“Yet, actually, the brain mapping test usually is divided into five. The first one is the upper left brain side. People who tend to use this upper left brain more are usually analytical and smart. They are good academically. The second is the bottom left brain side which is famous for its ability to memorize and have diligent behavior. The third is the upper right brain side. These kinds of people are usually able to think creatively and innovatively. They are very good at contributing new ideas. The fourth is the bottom left brain side which often uses emotions. People who use this side of the brain tend to be very concerned with relationships. They are smart at making new friends. The last one is the midbrain. These kinds of people tend to use instinct and are versatile,” he explains.

Just like the ability of a human who does not need to be experts in many fields. Just one skill that suits our talents and interests,” Pak Nuslih closed.
