SCAN left, SCAN right…
A nice analogy that you might like to explore, in terms of SCAN for sensemaking:
The Simple side of SCAN, over on the left, aligns well with ‘left-brain thinking’; the Not-simple, ambiguous, ‘none-of the-above’ side of SCAN, over on the right, aligns well with ‘right-brain thinking’.
Yes, I know that analogy has been over-used in the past. But take a look at this RSA Animate on Iain McGilchrist’s talk ‘The Divided Brain‘, which brings that original research up to date – and the analogy does still stand.

Useful, I hope?
