A place to indulge my narcissism... and write stuff...

My Brain is Right to be Left

This cool test is from the PerthNow news site Down Under…

Evidently, most people see the woman turning counter-clockwise. Not me. Through my prism she’s spinning in time, an indication I’m Right-Brain dominant.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe

sequential
mathematics: perception of counting/measurement

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
“big picture” oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can “get it” (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking

simultaneous
mathematics: perception of shapes/motions

I see traits on both sides of the ledger, but right rules. The last two italicized entries came from Wikipedia and brought me back to high school. There I struggled to get B’s in Algebra, but easily aced Geometry while most of my peers struggled. That provides a sliver of evidence to the claim that only 5% of right handed people are also right-brain dominant.

But what does it all mean, Basil? I have no idea, but it gave me an excuse to post a hot spinning naked chick. Blame it on my “fantasy based” right brain.

    In the ‘for what it’s worth category’ http://scienceline.org/2007/10/29/ask-hsu-spinning-girl-right-left-brain-hemispheres/ -looked it up when I first saw this since I see the image turn both ways.

    Yeah, as I was thinking about it, horoscopes and fortune cookies came to mind…
