A LOOK Inside

How Whole Brain Thinking Can Save The Future

Why Left Hemisphere Dominance Has Brought Humanity to the Brink of Disaster and How We Can Think Our Way to Peace and Healing


How Whole Brain Thinking Can Save the Future explores how we can achieve peace—with ourselves, with others, and in the world—by better understanding the functioning of the brain’s two management systems. When we look at how the brain influences our beliefs, the programming that governs our day-today existence, we see that when our beliefs are limited to the insights of only one hemisphere, they can sabotage even our best efforts to realize our deepest longings and desires. The book also addresses the political polarization that is tearing America apart. If politicians and pundits employed a whole-brain perspective, Olson shows, this would allow them to see the complementary nature of the two sides and
ultimately unify the country.

What you’ll learn inside this book:

  • The way brain hemispheres work and why you think the way you do
  • How men can better understand women and women truly understand men
  • How to improve your decision-making by consciously using both hemisphere
  • Why you feel certain attractions, repulsions, and compulsions
  • A revolutionary theory about sexual orientation
  • The source of our political polarization and how to reverse it

  • Each of the hemispheres houses an operating system, a management system serving to coordinate the interaction of the two sides of the brain.
  • As a result of three types of genetic dominance—complete, incomplete, and codominance—four types of brain operating systems are produced.
  • Recognizing that information inflows into the brain are separate from information outflows, Olson posits that the brain’s information input and output are independently subject to dominance, permitting one of the four systems to manage information input and one of the four to manage output, creating 16 different genetically determined operating-system combinations.
  • Olson’s model explains masculine tending straight women, gay men, and lesbians, as well as feminine tending straight men, gay men, and lesbians—and more.


  • How do the two hemispheres differ in terms of their viewpoint and the focus of their attention? How do their responses differ?
  • How does brain lateralization affect our polarized political discourse?
  • How can we facilitate greater harmony between our brain’s operating systems—and thus begin to heal ourselves, our cultural divisions, and our planet?

Olson’s model of sexual orientation suggests:

  • Each brain hemisphere houses its own independent operating/management system with its own clearly defined operational characteristics. These characteristics reflect the qualities we associate with gender.
  • Our brain’s operating system, and the gender it gives us, is determined by genetic dominance, which consists of complete dominance, incomplete dominance, and codominance.
  • Complete dominance gives us either a masculine or a feminine gender. Incomplete dominance creates a mixture of the two. Codominance establishes a team gender and creates bisexuality.
  • Homosexuality results when brain dominance is reversed, i.e., when males are informed by the feminine side of the brain, or females are informed by the masculine side.
  • Because information input is independent of information output, and both input and output are characterized by one of four genders, we can inherit any one of sixteen possible gender combinations (4x4=16).
