OUR BRAIN HAVE VALUES AND IT’S EXCELLENCY

March 12, 2009
 
Every brain has its uniqueness inside the neocortex. Neocortex is the structure in the brain that differentiates human from other vertebrates and its serves as the center of higher mental functions for human beings. It nurtures the higher intelligence of human beings.

 Prefrontal lobe – has been found to play a part in impulse control, working memory, problem solving, socialization and spontaneity. It assists in planning, coordinating, controlling, and executing behaviour creating personality expression and moderating correct social behaviour. People who have damaged prefrontal lobe may experience problems with being unable to initiate action, attentiveness, ability to concentrate, behaviour disorders, difficulty in learning new information, lack of inhibition (appropriate social behaviour), lack of goal-direction and emotional ability with “Flat effect” (unemotional). 

Frontal lobe – logical thinking, computation process, analysis, reasoning and judgement, language production, handling of words and grammar and synthesis, imagination, concept and idea formation, creative thinking and visualization.

The Parietal lobe – is responsible for control activity, involved in reception and processing of sensory information from the body.

Parietal lobe damage:
Damage to the front part of the parietal lobe on one side causes numbness and impairs sensation on the opposite side of the body. Affected people have difficulty identifying a sensation’s location and type (pain, heat, cold or vibration). Damage to the back part of the parietal lobe causes right-left disorientation and problems with calculation and drawing. Damage to the right parietal lobe can cause aphasia – inability to perform simple skilled task, such as brushing the hair or dressing.

Temporal lobe – is responsible for the reception of auditory (hearing) input. For example, the right temporal lobe is responsible for musical appreciation, whilst the left hemisphere is responsible for the understanding of speech. Left temporal lesion results in impaired memory for verbal material. Right side lesion can result in recall of non-verbal material, such as music and drawing.

The Occipital lobe – is responsible for visual spatial processing and visual interpretation. For example the right occipital lobe will recognizes image/object and faces by sight. The left occipital lobe is responsible for recognition of words, sign and symbol and reading. Damage of occipital lobe will lead to discrimination of movement and color discrimination. And it also can cause word blindness with writing impairments (alexia & agraphia)

The theory of the structure and functions of the mind suggests that the two different sides of the brain control two different “modes” of thinking. It also suggests that each of us prefers one mode over the other. 

Right brain and left brain dominated people can also be categorized as divergent and convergent thinkers respectively.

A convergent thinker has a systematic approach and plays by the rules. He analyzes everything and reaches a logical conclusion. Thus, scientific and mathematical activities are more up his street.

Divergent thinkers, on the other hand, are creative and tend to throw the rules out of the window. They are artistic and always looking for ways to express themselves.

When It Comes To Academics

Left brain dorminated children do well at school, as they are more likely to respond to formal learning. They exhibit greater responsibility, are quite content to study by themselves and have greater concentration.

Right brain dominated children, on the other hand, are less likely to perform well academically. They prefer to study with company, cannot sit still for very long and are more responsive in informal settings. 

 The Secret of the Rich’s Brain

 The connection between individual neurons results in learning. Even if the brain’s development is completed and the neurons have stopped increasing. Learning abilities can still be improved.

 “GENIUSES cannot be CREATED, but can be DISCOVERED! Everyone is a genius when they are in the right position”

About Dermatoglyphics!

Dermatoglyphics refers to the branch of science in the study of the patterns of skins (dermal) ridges present on the fingers, toes and the soles of human. Its reveals the congenital links between our fingers and our intrinsic qualities and talents.

Dermatoglyphics is coined by Professor Harold Cummins in the 20th century. Since 1920s, there have been numerous research.

Dermatoglyphics has absolute scientific basis, with 200 years of research. It is analyzed and proven with evidence in anthropology, genetic, medicine and statistics. In recent years, U.S., Japan and Taiwan have applied Dermatoglyphics to diagnose Down Syndrome, congenital disorders, generic abnormalites, educational fields, human resources management, employee recruitment, and etc.

Are You In The 21st Century?

Are You In The 21st Century?

THE BENEFITS OF DMIT

(Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test)

CHILDREN / STUDENTS / ADULTS

  • Identify his/her best learning style and charcateristics.
  • Identify his/her inborn talents and weaknesses.
  • Tailor-made your child’s own learning programs.
  • Subject/course selection
  • Reduce time and money wastage over irrelevant course and classes.
  • Develop children’s confidence.
  • Improve the relationship between parents and children.
  • A better childhood for your children.
Over Stressed ... Can This Happened! "EXPLOSION"

Over Stressed ... Can This Happened! "EXPLOSION"

“All parents should be able to identify their children talents and characteristics provided they are full time guardians”.

In the 21st century, most parents have a full time career and most don’t have time for their children. Many will send their children to childcare centers and babysitters. Due to the lack of interaction and relationship among them have lead to many misunderstanding and frustration.

No matter what the consequences, education plays an important role in the progress of an individual’s mind. Education is everything. People are made aware of what is going on in the wide world and can understand these issue and take necessary measures. If people are educated, it is not difficult to find a job – keeping in mind the fact that no job is low. Education tames the astray mind, nurturing its capabilities.

It is your life you are developing. Your life and the lives of your children can achieve greater accomplishments by simple process. Find out each individual student learns most pleasurably and effectively, and let them fly.

In 1983, a researcher and professor at Harvard University named Howard Gardner proposed a new view of intelligence.

MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT

Intelligence Application Integration

Dermatoglyphics test integrate our brain multiple intelligence quotient which allow us to understand the excellency and mastery of our difference intelligences. Discovered of our intelligences earlier in life help us enhance and better stimuli that part of us, for undiscovered intelligence will only be buried because of stop learning.

Dr. Howard Gardner says that our schools and culture focus most of their attention on linguistic and logical – mathematical intelligence. We esteem the highly articulate or logical people of our culture. However, Dr. Gardner says that we should also place equal attention on individuals who show gifts in their intelligences : the artists, architects, musicians, naturalists, designers, dancers, therapists, entrepreneurs and others who enrich the world in which we live.

Unfortunately, many children who have these gifts don’t receive much reinforcement for them in school. Many of these kids, in fact, end up being labeled “learning disabled” “ADD (attention deficit disorder,” or simply underachievers. when their unique ways of thinking and learning aren’t addressed by a heavily linguistic or logical – mathematical classroom.

“The good news is that the theory of multiple intelligence has grabbed the attention of many educators around the world, and hundreds of schools are currently using its philosophy to redesign the way it educates children. The bad news is that there are thousands of schools still out there that teach in the same old dull ways, through dry lectures, boring worksheets and textbooks”.

The challenge is to get this information out to many more parents, teachers, school administrators and others who work with children, so that each child has the opportunity to learn in ways harmonious with their unique minds.

The theory of multiple intelligences also has strong implications for adult learning and development. Many adults find themselves in a jobs that do not make optimal use of their most highly developed intelligences (for example, the highly – kinesthetic individual who is stuck in a linguistic or logical desk – job when he should be much happier in a job where they could move around, such as recreational leader, a forest ranger, or physical therapist). The theory of multiple intelligences gives adults a whole new way to look at their lives, examining potentials that they left behind in their childhood (such as love for art or drama) but now have the opportunity to develop through courses, hobbies, or other programs of self-development.

How to Teach or learn Anything 8 Different Ways

One of the most remarkable features of the theory of multiple intelligences is how it provides eight different potential pathways to learning. If having difficulty reaching a student in the more traditional linguistic or logical ways of instruction, the theory of multiple intelligences suggests several other ways in which the material might be presented to facilitate effective learning.

Whether a student, a kindergarden teacher, a graduate school instructor, or an adult learner seeking better ways of pursuing self – study on any subject of interest, the same basic guidance apply. Whatever you are learning, see how you might connect it with:-

  • words (linguistic intelligence)
  • numbers or logic (logical – mathematical intelligence)
  • pictures (spatial intelligence)
  • music (musical intelligence)
  • self – reflection (intrapersonal intelligence)
  • physical experience (bodily – kinesthetic intelligence)
  • social experience (interpersonal intelligence)
  • experience in the natural world (naturalist intelligence)

For example, if you are learning about law of supply and demand in economics, you might read about it (linguistic), study  mathematical formulas that express it (logical – mathematical), examine a graphic chart that illustrates the principle (spatial), observe the law in the natural world (naturalist) or in the human world of commerce (interpersonal).

You don’t have to learn something in all eight ways, just to see what the possibilities are, and then decide which particular pathways interest you the most, or seem to be the most effective learning tools. The theory of multiple intelligences is so intriguing because it expands our horizon of available learning tools beyond the conventional linguistic and logical methods used in most schools (e.g. lecture, textbooks, writing assignments, formulas, etc.).

Raising Your Child Intelligence Quotients

What is intelligence?

“Intelligence is the ability to make finer distinction” Being able to get good grade in school and brand as a genius is not nesscessary a genius in financial intelligence. What it really meant is, when a person is good in learning in the classroom, he or she has a higher academic IQ intelligence.  Whilst, for some learning to play football, tennis or baseball quickly, these groups of people have higher Sports IQ intelligence.

Intelligence is when you can tell the differences between something. Those differences are called ‘distinctions’. The more you can tell the differences, then the more intelligent you are.

“Our school systems puts great importance upon Academic and Scholastic Intelligence. So when someone has a high IQ, they mean a high scholastic or academic IQ. The current IQ test measures primarily a person’sverbal IQ. Their ability to read and write. So techinically, a person with high IQ is someone who learns quickly by reading. It does not measure all of a person’s intelligence. So that IQ is not measure of a person’s artistic IQ, physical IQ or even their mathematical intelligence, which are all legitimate intelligences’s.”

Continuing on, everyone needs to find way to learn things that best suits their learning style. Nevertheless, you still need to learn to read. A person that is Sports Intelligence learn faster by doing rather than reading.

Academic intelligence, in many ways, has a problem in that he can read but cannot do. In some ways, he may find the real world a harder place to adapt than those who have Sports intelligence. If one learned of their inborn talents, all you need to is enhance your weaknesses intelligence. “Often people with high IQ’s do not do well in the real world.” Why is that?  Maybe because educators focus primarily on mental skills.

Schoolbook could never teach us…subjects and skills that are very important for success in the real world. All you need to find a way to make more distinctions faster, so you can learn faster…in a way that works best for you.
