Left or Right Brained ?
« on: 27/11/2007 14:06:51 »
Dearest All,

Happy Chewesday !


Here's a brain :


Nice isn't it ?...notice how non-inside a persons head it is ?...this is a quiet brain !

Like ewe are right handed or left handed, ewe are also right brained or left brained !...

How does one determine which side brained ewe are ?....and what are the differences ?.......or is it as simple as the fact that I am right handed means I am right brained ?


I don't know !!...why not ewese yours and help me understand ?

Well you take a series of tests like the IQ test with all its secondary tests there is one that determines which you are by how you think and resolve and solve things. I took it and this was the result for mine  I am equally balanced! YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!
______________________________________________________________________
Your right and left brain hemispheres are equally dominant!
Balanced-brained

That means you are able to draw on the strengths of both the right and
left hemispheres of your brain, depending upon a given situation. When
you need to explain a complicated process to someone, or plan a
detailed holiday, the left hemisphere of your brain, which is
responsible for your ability to solve problems logically, might kick
in. But if you were critiquing an art opening or coming up with an
original way to file papers, the right side of your brain, which is
responsible for noticing subtle details in things, might take over.

While many people have clearly dominant left- or right-brained
tendencies, you are able to draw on skills from both hemispheres of
your brain. This rare combination makes you a very creative and
flexible thinker.

...ewe are also right brained or left brained !...

In the popular press they often talk about "left-brained" = more rational, "right-brained" = more "feeling"/"intuitive"...

What is the scientific evidence that the two sides of the brain contribute different approaches... or is it psychologist mumbo-jumbo (being deliberately contraversial  ;D)?

Here is something weird to do. close your eyes, think about a pretty picture of lets say flowers .. when I do that and it is predominantly coming from my right side as if I can feel which side of my head the thoughts in... is that weird?  It changes when I try to recall an image like my moms face an then it feels more centered and to the left!
