What we are and how to us to understand each other? “Artist“ and “Thinker“ of

Popular psychology offers us a set of tests for the subject “Define the Type of the Personality“. Gradation at the same time are used the most different. About one of such tipologiya the speech will also go: about two types of thinking which are conditionally designated as “cogitative“ and “art“ types. Certainly, similar classification does not correspond to a profession or a field of activity of the individual. Two versatile types of thinking are defined by relative domination of the left or right hemispheres of a brain. Why it is so important?

Each of us continuously contacts to other people - so, we constantly communicate, we show and we perceive emotions, we explain the point of view and we try to understand others - in other words, we interact. There can also be problems: if two individuals with essentially different way of attitude trying to speak, in fact, “everyone the language“ interact. And our speech reflects our attitude. Communication of the deaf with the blind person will be rough analogy of misunderstanding in a similar case - both perceive the world, but the plane of perception of each of them is inaccessible for another.

In what difference of a mentality of “cogitative“ type (levopolusharny) and “art“ (pravopolusharny)? The Levopolusharny type of thinking analitichen, his attitude leans mainly on the second alarm system - the speech and signs. The direct, “direct“ perception of reality, the events in more difficult way through the analysis (decomposition of the perceived picture on the elements making it) and synthesis (the return process, construction of elements of a complete image) is not characteristic of “thinker“. It is natural that the received image of a subject or the phenomenon possesses this or that share of artificiality - but it gives in to the accurate description, systematization, understanding and an explanation. Respectively, it is easier for “thinker“ to operate with abstract and theoretical concepts, logical constructions.

The Pravopolusharny type of thinking assumes more direct vision of the world which is not mediated by the speech and formal symbols. The right hemisphere perceives the world more directly, figuratively, intuitively, as a unit. Besides, such perception much more emotionally. With the known measure of convention it is possible to tell that the person with the dominating right hemisphere perceives the world, “grabbing“ all picture at once and at a time.

The understanding of features and distinctions in a way of attitude and thinking opens an opportunity to the best mutual understanding. If you want to be witnesses, it is necessary to speak language of that person to which your speech is addressed. But each of us considers the way of attitude natural and self-evident and often does not even think that the interlocutor can perceive, process and produce information absolutely differently.

It is possible to tell that “artist“ perceives the world whereas “thinker“ creates his model. From here, it is easier for “thinker“ to operate with abstract and theoretical concepts, logical constructions, schemes. Huge plus here - an opportunity to verbally convey information which and on the internal plan is provided by concepts, signs, schemes.

To the individual of an art warehouse is more comfortable in the activity demanding figurativeness, an emotional inclusiveness, a susceptibility. It is easier for it to perceive a picture (a task, an event) in general though for it it can be difficult to inform of the vision people around - not so simply to verbalizovat an image, feeling, and often and vague feeling.

Discrepancy of rates of thinking can appear a problem also. Where one of interlocutors at some moment “grabbed“ a certain complete picture (an image, representation etc.) also tries to carry her the partner, another needs a little bigger time for “understanding“ and understanding. And business here at all not in the thinking speed (though “skhvatyvaniye“ occurs quicker), and in qualitatively other mechanism of receiving result - and therefore, in representation, different in a form, of the same object. But it is much simpler to “thinker“ to explain and often and most to understand in detail that he means whereas the individual with the dominating right hemisphere, “having grabbed“ an image in general, can logically not manage to prove the vision.

And one more. Logicality of thinking of levopolusharny type places great demands on internal consistency of the built picture. What does not keep within the scheme tends “to be cut“. The thinking of “art“ type is less critical to “contradictions“ which often perfectly coexist in the form of pluses of a certain whole or join in a uniform image, simply without being perceived as something clashing.

Naturally, all aforesaid concerns the “pure“ types which are really not existing. Each of us is capable to both ways of thinking though one usually dominates. Nevertheless, ability to essentially other attitude quite gives in to development, doing a picture of the world fuller, interesting and saturated, and communication by more productive.
