Social: Post #5--Two Brains
Two Brains: We have an analytical brain that works on solving problems—draws concepts from around the brain like a systems integrator to solve focused problems. We also have this social mind (mentalizing) that allows us to use our primal need for social thinking to consider what others are thinking, which helps us appropriately to react to others, socialize, and harmonize better. The brain’s default is social thinking.
