The likelihood of you developing an effective and rewarding personal (or professional) partnership relationship is enhanced when you:
- Understand your own brain-function styles
- Understand something about the other person’s brain-function styles
- Avoid expecting or pushing the other person to be like you
- Learn how to collaborate with the differences, maximizing each person’s giftedness
- Have fun in the process
My goal is to stimulate thinking and observation, trigger increased awareness at an individual level, jumpstart applications for everyday living, and provide options for behaviors. Although I have relied heavily on brain function research, a plethora of studies, and discussions with brain researchers and other experts, the summaries represent my own brain’s opinion.
It can be helpful to remember that conclusions from research projects and studies typically are presented in the form of generalizations that apply to nearly 70% of the population (to the first standard deviation on either side of the mean). There are always exceptions based on individuality, because each human brain develops uniquely. No two brains are ever identical in structure, function, or perception, not even the brains of identical twins.
