…It’s common knowledge that the brain is an extremely complex organism. It can process language, numbers, feelings, thoughts and emotions. Put very simply, the brain can be broken down into two components; the ‘systemiser’, which excels at logic and rules; and the ‘empathiser’, which excels at dealing with people and emotions.
