    Default Right-brained or left-brained?

    Not to be taken too seriously

    Which one are you dominantly? This is one test you could take
    Blogthings - Are You Right or Left Brained?


    Left-brained ppl:
    What would you say about your academic success? Has school been easy, did you do well?

    Right-brained ppl: -"- ?

    "The left brain is associated with verbal, logical, and analytical thinking. It excels in naming and categorizing things, symbolic abstraction, speech, reading, writing, arithmetic. The left brain is very linear: it places things in sequential order -- first things first and then second things second, etc. If you reflect back upon our own educational training, we have been traditionally taught to master the 3 R's: reading, writing and arithmetic -- the domain and strength of the left brain.

    The right brain, on the other hand, functions in a non-verbal manner and excels in visual, spatial, perceptual, and intuitive information. For the right brain, processing happens very quickly and the style of processing is nonlinear and nonsequential. The right brain looks at the whole picture and quickly seeks to determine the spatial relationships of all the parts as they relate to the whole. This component of the brain is not concerned with things falling into patterns because of prescribed rules. On the contrary, the right brain seems to flourish dealing with complexity, ambiguity and paradox. At times, right brain thinking is difficult to put into words because of its complexity, its ability to process information quickly and its non-verbal nature."





    "In general terms there are three main types of learners. One type favors the logical and analytical part of the brain, or the left side, and another favors the emotional and visual or the right brain whereas the third group accesses both sides of the brain equally. People who generally do well in school tend to favor the logical analytical part of the brain. Schools are designed for this type of thinking.Logical sequential learning is presented in an orderly prescribed manner. This mode of thinking is ideally suited to scholastic success. It was this mode of thinking that designed schools and curricula, and provided a firm basis for the linear, sequential, time dependent world in which we live.

    The majority of students appear to function well within this type of structured environment.

    They accept scientific method and find that lab reports are easy to write. Logical analytical learners learn within the confines of language and are controlled by it. To be able to learn in this manner enables one to be successful in many academic tests. With achievement comes confidence and that is the controlling factor in future success or failure.

    The second group are those who favor their visual memory for learning. They learn differently and tend to think in pictures, using the part of the brain that is emotional and creative. They do not think in words and are not governed by sentence structure. They ‘see’ the problem or information just as Einstein did. The picture in the mind does not dictate order. The acquisition of sequence is not automatic for the visual thinker. It usually has to be learned. In contrast to the auditory learner, the visual learner often encounters difficulty in school. School sometimes becomes a frightening place where there is constant insecurity and the visual learner is at a huge disadvantage.

    However, among these visual learners are many of our truly brilliant people. They use their vivid imaginations to solve problems, provide alternatives and generate new ideas and ways of doing things. Although the details may escape them, their ability to visualize offers them the opportunity to see ‘the big picture’. Many outstanding leaders are among the ranks of those who did not shine scholastically but were able to use their ability in the world of work. "



    What do you think?

    And could this have something to do with different personality types?

    "You Are 15% Left Brained, 85% Right Brained".

    I don't see any correlation to type..

    Ok, got You Are 10% Left Brained, 90% Right Brained , no surprise here...

    You know, I've been into this stuff about hemispheres for a pretty long time, from simple left-right functioning, through split-brained patients to withdrawal/approach models and so on.. a whole lot of theories. I think each of the theories are interesting by itself, and could be really reasonable. But otoh, there's really such a quantum of various theories, it's sometimes hard to find a correlation. What is connected with what.. The theories of hemispheres are being applied to whole lot of personality shit, like Gardner's multiple intelligences (or anyone made that), the four brain learning quadrants (or how's it called), even into MBTI.. you can find really everything related to brain hemispheres. And who shall know what's actually true and what's bullshit?

    To the MBTI - only recently a saw a very interesting site explaining each cognitive function in relation to particular brain hemisphere and brain functioning. E.g. they proposed that left brain is responsible for Si, Ni, Te, Fe and right is responsible for Ne, Se, Ti, Fi, so Js are left and Ps are right brained...
