# Induced magnetism

I have been trying to search for answers on the Internet, but to no avail.
For induced magnetism, i understand that a magnetic material can turn into an induced magnet under the influence of a magnetic field. However, i do not understand how to magnetic poles are determined.

Suppose a perm magnet arranged as SN. a magnetic material is placed to its right. Why is the induced S pole at the centre with 2 N pole on the ends of the material?
Shouldn't the induced magnet have a N on the left side and S on the right side? Why is the N at the centre? I can't find a diagram sorry
