Summary

Technically speaking, brain building is called cognitive skill development and has been in the psychology domain since the early 1960s. Historically, cognitive skill improvement was isolated within progressive coastal school districts and psychologists' private offices. Cognitive skill improvement was used successfully as a treatment in these arenas for learning and even psychological problems. Unfortunately its use as a training tool was ignored, in spite of obvious workplace implications. One learning disability specialist who conducted many field tests with corporations and over a thousand students made some interesting discoveries: individuals can modify or add to their existing learning style inventory, and each person has a unique mental profile with high and low areas. Knowledge of personal strengths and weaknesses gives a person the power to match himself/herself with the demands of potential careers and their skill requirements. Different careers require different skill sets, some more analytical, some more verbal, some more spatial, or organizational. Self-knowledge not only translates into better work proficiency, but also higher income and self-actualization. There are many simple exercises individuals can try, which are based upon formal measurements. Many other games and checklists for assessing right- and left-brain dominance are on the market in bookstores. An individual's ability to organizing or sequencing information is fundamental to office and work management. The best thing people can do for themselves is determine what their strengths and weaknesses are. (NKA)
