Strengths of the Left Brain
The stereotypical left-brained thinker brings a number of essential attributes that can enhance the innovation process:
Rapid Processing of Language
Left-brain dominant thinkers are excellent assets when seeking to understand regional dialects and international languages. This comes into play when introducing innovations to an international field.
Strong Logic and Critical Thinking
It’s easier for the left-brained to rapidly process large amounts of data. They often maintain a clearly objective perspective, allowing them to more readily identify patterns and themes. This is a great asset when reviewing observational studies and user experiences.
An Affinity for Numbers and Abstract Reasoning
When their right-brained co-workers come up with a new idea, the left-brained people on the team utilize this strength to create more detailed structures for innovative designs and enhance their team members’ creativity.
Strategic and Practical Outlook
This quality is what really connects creative innovation with real-life implementation. Left-brained employees are able to envision the path from point A to point B. They see the strategy required to make innovation effective and naturally take into account the feasibility of an idea during both the planning and the execution.
