This is how you use your brain in escape rooms

Based on the results of brain research, we now know that our right and left hemispheres specialize in different functions. The right hemisphere is home to creative skills, and the left hemisphere is responsible for logical functions. In an escape game, we need both at the same time, so we work both halves of our brains at the same time.

Based on the results of brain research, we now know that our right and left hemispheres specialize in different functions. The right hemisphere is home to creative skills, and the left hemisphere is responsible for logical functions. In an escape game, we need both at the same time, so we work both halves of our brains at the same time.

The creative right hemisphere

The right hemisphere is responsible for our emotions, creativity, and intuitions. Typically, artists are the ones who use this area of ​​their brain more. That is why it will help you come up with new ideas in the game. They will facilitate to find the paths that will definitely get you out.

 

In addition to creativity, the right hemisphere is able to go beyond details and discover broader connections. It reads between the lines. It will be very useful when you need to combine seemingly independent clues and objects and notice how they are connected to each other.

Another useful feature of the right hemisphere is spatial vision, which you will need not only for orientation, but also because much of the puzzles in the escape rooms take advantage of this skill.

 

The logical left hemisphere

 

The left hemisphere is a rational part of our brain. This is where our analytical, logical thinking “dwells”. Without it, we would hardly have a chance to successfully overcome the obstacles we face in this fundamentally logical game.

The left half of our brain is the one that can discover the small details, so it can be of great help to us to find even the tiniest hidden clues.

One of the biggest challenges in escape rooms is always the fight over time; luckily, our inner clock is ticking here because this area of ​​the brain is also responsible for the sense of time.

 

This is also, where the sequential process of steps is born, as the left hemisphere is responsible for strategic thinking.

Finally yet importantly, the center of bravery and communication is also here. Since the escape game is not simply a series of puzzles, but a team game, we will also need this very much.

 

Unity is strength

 

We can make the best use of our brains, and we will be successful if we take advantage of the abilities dormant in both the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Think about it: you would not go anywhere in life with creativity without strategy, or with logic without ideas. This is especially true for escape room puzzles that can perfectly match not only the players involved, but also the two halves of our brains.
