Right brain vs. left brain: Which side are you on?
Posted Apr 06 2009 7:10pm
Have you ever thought why some people can paint beautifully, but have difficulty adding two and two? Or why some people can understand the intricacies of calculus effortlessly, but struggle to write a one-page essay? It's all about which side of your brain dominates - the left or the right. The right is responsible for imagination, feelings and creativity, while the left is responsible for logic, details and facts.
Want to know which side is dominant for you? Go to this link (or just look below), and look at the picture of the dancer. Focus on which way she is turning. Is it clockwise? Or counter-clockwise?
If clockwise is your answer, you use your right brain more often. If you saw her moving in the other direction, you use your left. If you look really hard and focus on the dancer, you can see that she changes direction.
For me, she was turning clockwise, which means my right lobe is more dominant -- therefore I'm more creative. I imagine since it's also representative of dancing, arts and sports, most of you (who are athletic) will have the same results.
