Are You Right or Left-Brained?
We’ve heard for years people explaining their behavior by using the phrase, “of course I’m good at directions, I’m left-brained!”, or I can’t help being emotional, I’m right-brained you know!” It turns out that we’ll all have to stop using that as an excuse.
According to the results of a two year neuroscience study at the University of Utah, most people use both sides of their brains without a predominance of one or the other. The researchers found that there are certain brain activities, like speech, which specifically occur in one hemisphere of the brain, but one side is not stronger than the other.
So there go all my excuses for hating math and science, plus I can’t claim to be a right-brained creative type anymore! Crap!
Even though the results may be totally meaningless, take this quiz just for fun. I found out that I am 65% right brain.
