What is it about the Brain Introvert that makes it so effective at improving mood, improving attention and concentration? Is it that the brain works in two ways: first, it is wired such that when it is put into a particular state, either by being anxious or by being fearful, the chemicals associated with that “state” flood the system. The chemicals seem to work the best when the person is calm; but as soon as the stress begins to mount, the chemicals seem to switch to the more advantageous brain-stressing chemicals, thus increasing the difficulty for the person to concentrate. But the right-brain extrovert seems immune to this effect.
There are two ways to understand this second way of seeing the situation. The left-brain extrovert believes that his or her mood is controlled by the subconscious factors that determine personality type. The right-brain extrovert believes that the answer is that the emotions and attitudes of the people around one are responsible for his or her mood. (He may be right.) The answer is not so cut and dried.
This second way of thinking can lead to some unfortunate outcomes. Most psychologists believe that left-brain introverts often become right-brain extroverts. In order to maintain a harmonious relationship between the two personalities, an extroverted person needs to bring the left-brain introvert into the fold – but how? And how do extroverted persons who are left-brain introverts find this compatible relationship? These are the questions that many psychologists have been asked and have provided interesting insights into the nature and maintenance of personality type.
In a recent study published in Psychological Review, a research team led by J. Mark Johnson of the University of Iowa examined the personality characteristics of forty right-handed and left-handed people, half of which were left-brain extroverts and half of which were right-brain introverts. The subjects were shown a series of pictures, one of which was coded for each of the four main personality types. Then they had to respond to a prompt that asked them to state whether they would prefer to ride a horse or to have an ice cream treat. After the completion of the task, the participants were asked to rate how much they liked each picture on a seven-point scale ranging from one (not much) to seven (very much).
The results showed that the right-brain extrovert prefers horses over ice cream. Why is this so? The researchers believe that the right-brain introvert wants to be in control of the situation. So, instead of having an ice cream cone, the right-brain extrovert might prefer to ride a horse. However, there are other ways to get the most out of your right-brain introvert. If you want to find out how you can change your personality to be more like an introvert then keep reading.
One of the interesting things we found out in the study was that the two personality types use different methods to deal with stress. According to the research, the left-handers use cognitive processes such as abstracting, meaning that they try to figure out the meaning of the situation through logic and reason. Meanwhile, the right-handers, on the other hand, use experiential processes such as taking action, which is much more mechanical. So, if you want to use these two opposite personality styles to your advantage then you need to learn how to switch between the two. One way to do this is through horseback riding. However, there are two other ways to get the most out of your personality type.
If you are an introvert then you should try riding a horse. Now, you might wonder why you should do this. Well, it has been found out that the left-brain introvert prefers horseback riding because they are able to experience an increased amount of control over their emotions. This means that if they can learn how to control themselves then they can better control their feelings. On the other hand, the right-brain extrovert would rather do things like hiking, climbing, swimming, camping and riding. They are more outgoing and would rather enjoy the great outdoors.
You might also wonder how you can get over your introverted nature. For one, you need to forget about being shy or being introverted. These things were your personality in the past. Now is the time for you to be an extrovert. Now is also the time to get yourself a little bit more exposed and get out into the public.
