Left Brain or Right Brain – Which One Are You?

Left Brain:

  • Decisive
  • Logical
  • Accurate
  • Analytical
  • Reason
  • Practical
  • Strategic
  • Control
  • Scientific
  • Realistic

Right Brain:

  • Intuition
  • Love
  • Poetry
  • Freedom
  • Passionate
  • Vivid
  • Creative
  • Yearning
  • Peace
  • Artistic

Cute picture right? Funny. Eye Opening.  I definitely think they left out quite a few words for either side but they couldn’t list them all – it would be too busy for the left brainers to want to read and too chaotic for the right brainers to enjoy.

Which one are you?  If I had to pick just one I’d say Right Brain but I use quite a bit of my Left Brain too!  Of course who doesn’t?

Obviously with my graphic and website design business and as an author I have the creativity, imagination, and passion to advance, but again with that I have the decisive, practical control to get the job done and NOT outsource the work.  Who’s heard the phrase “If you want the job done, do it yourself” because I know I say it all the time.

Of course it is the left ‘realistic’ brain that realized I needed to hire illustrators and the right ‘peaceful’ brain that decided to work from a home office rather than in an office park.  It is the logical me that knows just what I am capable of and the passionate me that pushes the limits and learns new things to keep up and progress forward.

I’ve always told my clients, “If I don’t know how to do it, I will figure it out.” Isn’t that considered logical as well as passionate?  Heck I’d even go with strategically creative… otherwise I may loose a potential project.

I found this as well:

The Right Brain

The right side of the brain is best at expressive and creative tasks. Some of the abilities that are popularly associated with the right side of the brain include:

·         Recognizing faces

·         Expressing emotions

·         Music

·         Reading emotions

·         Color

·         Images

·         Intuition

·         Creativity

The Left Brain

The left-side of the brain is considered to be adept at tasks that involve logic, language and analytical thinking. The left-brain is often described as being better at:

·         Language

·         Logic

·         Critical thinking

·         Numbers

·         Reasoning

Of course I can’t recognize faces but I am good with emotion – and I am not good with languages but I am good with numbers.  Personally, I think there is not a split, one or the other, theory debunked. But there are definitely those out there that tend to lean to one side or another.

So… which are you?  Do you walk the line or lean against the fence?

    I agree, we have sone of the “right brain” and some of the “left brain” in all of us. Since I’m basically left handed, I assume I am more “right brained”, but maybe not! Enjoyed your comments. Hugs, Sylvia
