Any good thing, including your brain bent, can become a liability when taken to the extreme or used out of balance. Therefore, it is preferable to use your giftedness in balance to minimize the probability that it will turn into a liability.

Following are examples of the way in which individuals might approach attaining balance in life in relation to the four cerebral divisions. 

altPrioritizing Division

 

altEnvisioning Division

 

Individuals with a brain bent in this cerebral division tend to want social and organizational power (and may try to achieve this through managing time, money, and other resources).

They want to set and achieve goals, but they do not have to:

  • Always be in charge
  • Be over-controlling
  • Blow up when frustrated
  • Become a workaholic in an effort to achieve goals and win

 

Individuals with a brain bent in this cerebral division tend to want innovation and variety.

They want freedom from restrictions, routines, and rules, but they do not have to:

  • Break the law
  • Go into debt
  • Flaunt all conventions
  • Avoid all routines / details, and leap before looking

 

altMaintaining Division

altHarmonizing Division

 

Individuals with a brain bent in this cerebral division tend to want predictability and continuation of the status quo.

They want to develop and run routines, but they do not have to:

  • Proliferate rules and routines
  • Avoid all change
  • Refuse to take any risks
  • Dig in their heels and become rigid and overly stubborn

 

Individuals with a brain bent in this cerebral division tend to want peaceful environments and foundations, connection, and collegiality.

They want harmony and dislike conflict, but they do not have to:

  • Be overly sensitive
  • Stake everything on a relationship (and/or tolerate abuse)
  • Overconform or overcomply
  • Violate conscience to achieve harmony and avoid conflict

 

Note: Almost any desirable activity, taken to excess, can result in the development of a life out of balance and an addictive behavior. (Refer to Addictive Behaviors for additional information).
