Are You Right or Left Brained?

Some more from teh site:

Left brain dominant individuals are more orderly, literal, articulate, and to the point. They are good at understanding directions and anything that is explicit and logical. They can have trouble comprehending emotions and abstract concepts, they can feel lost when things are not clear, doubting anything that is not stated and proven.

Right brain dominant individuals are more visual and intuitive. They are better at summarizing multiple points, picking up on what's not said, visualizing things, and making things up. They can lack attention to detail, directness, organization, and the ability to explain their ideas verbally, leaving them unable to communicate effectively.

Overall you appear to have fairly Equal Hemispheres


According to Darwinian theory, optimal evolution takes place with random variation and selective retention. The evolution savvy individual will try many different approaches when faced with a problem and select the best of those approaches. Many historical intellectuals have confessed their advantage was simply considering/exploring/trying more approaches than others. The left brain dominant type suffers from limited approaches, narrow-mindedness. The right brain dominant type suffers from too many approaches, scatterbrained. To maintain balanced hemispheres, you need to exercise both variability and selection. Just as a company will have more chance of finding a great candidate by increasing their applicant pool, an individual who considers a wider set of options is more likely to make quality decisions.

That rather sounds like me, many narrowly focussed, but scattered approaches.

I'm definitely more left than right. I am an INTJ on the Myer's Briggs test. Have you taken it?
Richard said…
I am INTJ as well (although borderline on the J - I easily toggle between J and P).
Oh man, I am so right brain!
Richard said…
Really? So does this imply that you are a lefty?
I am very much right-brained and am right-handed as well. I use my left leg to put in front of me when I do the splits (Used to!)and my right to kick a ball. Interesting topic, this!
