altTypically, individuals who are Extraverts may be more likely to seek higher office, as are individuals with a brain lead in one of the frontal lobes. Sometimes, however, candidates are recruited and selected by others for a variety of reasons (e.g., the candidate exhibits characteristics that match special interests or perceived needs). Once in office, however, and over time, the candidate often approaches the required activities from the perspective of his/her own innate giftedness.

It can be interesting to conjecture about the innate brain lead of selected United States presidents, the potential reasons that pushed them to do what they did, contributors to situations in which they excelled and others in which they fumbled badly. It doesn’t excuse what some may consider as undesirable behaviors; it can help to point out underlying contributors that may have played a factor in personal choice.

Take former President Clinton, for example. Some of his actions could match the following brain-function descriptions:

  • A double right with an innate energy-advantage in the right posterior lobes
  • An extreme extravert on the EAI Continuum
  • A kinesthetic sensory preference

Take Hillary on the other hand, (it’s all conjecture, of course, but opposites do attract). Some of her actions could match the following brain-function descriptions:

  • Have a double left pattern with an energy-advantage in the left frontal lobe
  • Be ambiverted
  • Have an auditory sensory preference.

It can also be interesting to conjecture about individuals who, although not holding a political elected position, made great contributions to the world.

Following are examples of brain-lead conjectures, some resulting from conversations with Benziger and others.

altPrioritizing Division

altEnvisioning Division

 

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may be committed to making timely and logical decisions for others.

Examples may include:

  • Dwight D. Eisenhower
  • Lyndon Johnson
  • Bob Dole
  • General MacArthur
  • Robert McNamara
  • Jimmy Carter (may be less Extraverted)

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may be committed to making visionary innovations.

Examples may include:

  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Harry Truman
  • F. D. Roosevelt
  • Richard Nixon
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Winston Churchill
  • Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Mahatma Ghandhi

 

altMaintaining Division

altHarmonizing Division

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may be committed to maintaining the status quo.

Examples may include:

  • Herbert Hoover
  • Calvin Coolidge
  • Gerald Ford

Individuals with an energy advantage in this division may be committed to networking and to maintaining community.

Examples may include:

  • George Bush, Sr.
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Bill Clinton
  • Jesse Jackson
  • Billy Graham
  • Nelson Mandela
  • Mother Theresa

 

NOTE: Anecdotally, Benziger has observed that historically, Republican presidents have tended to be double lefts with a brain lead in one of the divisions of the left cerebral hemisphere. Democrats on the other hand have been more likely to be double rights with a brain lead in one of the divisions of the right hemisphere.

Northern politicians have tended to be better educated than Southern politicians but less gifted at networking. Conversely, southern politicians have tended to be somewhat less well-educated but have often gotten by on relationships (e.g., more gifted at networking and socializing).
