How to correctly drive thru?

I am newly living in Belgium and I am going through this intersection every day.
I am always very confused and nervous when passing this intersection. There are no signs indicating priority, so whoever coming from right should have priority. However, the road that I am crossing is much bigger and it seems that not everybody is aware of this rule, since many cars coming from the left do not pay any attention to cars coming from the smaller road. Usually I let the cars from the left pass too, because I do not want to cause an accident just for the sake of making a point.
Moreover, I have seen people deal with this intersection in 2 possible ways indicated in the picture. Are there any savvy Belgianfags caring to explain? Are there some excentricities in the Belgian driving rules?
