Are you a Rightie or a Leftie?

I’m not talking about your hands. I want to know about your brain! You may have already seen this, but if you haven’t please check it out.

On October 9, 2007, The Herald Sun ran this article:

“THE Right Brain vs Left Brain testdancer girl

Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend

acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
“big picture” oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can “get it” (i.e. meaning)

impetuous
risk taking”

Feel free to also check out this quiz at: http://www.intelliscript.net/test_area/questionnaire/questionnaire.cgi?q=right_brain_left_brain_2

It tells you how much of each side of your brain you use. And in case you were wondering, I’m right-brained.
