The two hemispheres can operate in a complementary or conflicting manner. Analytic and holistic modes are complimentary when each provides a dimension that the other lacks. The two modes can be in conflict when there is some mutual antagonism between them, such as the tendency of the left hemisphere to note details in a form suitable for expression.

Creativity occurs when there is a smooth integration between both hemispheres of the brain. It is important to help the development of both modes so you can use them more effectively. By practicing and applying the powers of observation, concentration, classification and memory pegs you can strengthen and develop your left hemisphere function.

Memory devices such as visualizing, association, linking and substitution will help increase your ability to use your l ight hemisphere.

Putting both forms of memory devices into practice in your daily life will help you gradually increase your creative abilities.

KEY FUNCTION #3 MEMORY ASSOCIATION

The next key function of memory training (that uses visualization) is the process of association. Association and imaging interact continuously. This occurs because whatever appears in the mind must be introduced, and associated with something already there. Your memory depends on an organized system of association,

AIL memory {trained or untrained) is based on association. Perhaps the single most important way to remember information is to associate it with something you already know. This process helps keep you aware of the information you want to remember. It increases and improves your awareness and observation of what you want to remember. Thus, your original awareness is initiated. Anything of which you are originally aware is more difficult to forget. When you apply a system of association it forces original awareness. Observation is essential to original awareness. Anything you wish to remember must be first observed using association to assist you.

If you take a new piece of information and associate it with something you already know, it is easier to remember the new information. Thus, of two people with same experience and education, the one who thinks about his or her experiences and weaves them into a systematic relationship with each other, will have the better memory

One method that can help train you to associate items is by asking the questons why, when, how, where, who. When a new item you wish to remember is brought up ask these key questions.

Answering these questions will help you form a complete picture of the item and help you remember it. You will learn what there is to know about the situation, and then may accept or reject it. You'll find that when issues are supported by answers to these key questions, they will stay in your memory,

Rudyard Kipling, in The Elephant's Child, said: "I keep six honest serving men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When And I low and Where and Who"

Everyone uses association. The problem is that often it is done subconsciously without recognizing that it is a memory enhancing process.
