Left Brain, Right Brain

September 17, 2010 |  by

If you still get mixed up by left brain-right brain (like I do), here’s a quick scratchpad:

  • Left brain: analytical, rational, detail-oriented, reasoning, right-handed
  • Right brain: emotional, intuitive, big-pictured, impulsive, left-handed

There’s also evidence that conservative views are produced more from the left-brain, liberal views from the right-brain. Of course – it’s obvious – we need both halves. A balance. That’s what makes us human.

p.s. Did you see the picture as black and white blotches – or a dalmatian sniffing the ground? The left brain sees only the fine pattern, the right brain sees the dog.
