Left Brained Or Right Brained, or.....................
#1
I've seen this before, but never commented on it. However, there does appear to be some scientific basis for the categories. Here's the main point of the test.

Are You Left or Right Brain Predominant?

Look at the picture below for about 30 seconds and have a think about what you see. Then read below to evaluate the results of what you saw and find out if you are left or right brain orientated.

If you see this lady turning clockwise you are using your right brain
If you see the lady turning anti-clockwise you are using left brain


Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way. See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain's current. BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN. Experimentation has shown that the two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking.

Differences Between the Left & Right Brain
Left Brain-----------------Right Brain
Logical---------------------Intuitive
Sequential-----------------Random
Analytical------------------Holistic
Rational-------------------Synthesizing
Objective------------------Subjective
Looks at part--------------Looks at whole


Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking. Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain activities. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy.

Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics, feeling, and creativity. If you look away, she may switch from one direction to the other. I found that if I just look at her feet or relax and look at the floor where the reflection shows, she will switch direction!

There is a lot of research that proves special meditation and brainwave entrainment audios can actually help unify the two sides of your mind. This can be quite useful to exercise your mind so to speak. By doing this you can help create more clarity and direction in your decisions and thought patterns because you will neither 'over think' about things too much with your left brain - or - be too creative with your logic required decisions if you use your right brain.

Right brain here.

I can make her go either way at will. I don't even have to look away to change. I just concentrate a little, and the switch takes place. I've always been pretty good with analogies--maybe that's a right-brained thing. Yet I spent years as a computer programmer, and that would seem to be a left-brained thing.

Well, don't for get to vote for the 'both' category.

If there was a both option, I would vote for it.

I tend to be more scientific in my thinking, etc, so I am likely more right-brained.

Time to update your signature, Ted Kennedy has been sober for nearly 4 years.

I know, I just haven't had the heart go actually go in and do it.

In fact, since Ted's dead, I need a new target to lampoon.

There is. Look closely Tait.

Oh, I know someone even better. John McIdiot.

I'm the only Left Brained person here so far. Interesting.

One other thing. Are there any here, who are left-handed?

I am completely left-handed. While I can do tasks requiring both hands very well (I am actually very good with my hands), when it comes to writing, etc, I must do it with my left hand. It took me years of off and on practice to be able to shoot right handed.

Ok. Here's the reason why I asked. I keep think that perhaps the people who wrote all this up, were all right handed. Approximately one in ten are left handed, and righties are notorious for forgetting that there are Lefties in this universe.

So perhaps all lefties, who are left-brained are really right-brained with relation to dominance. Therefore, for me to be a 'so called' Left-brained person, I'm really the same as a right-brained right-handed person. Who knows.

But here is where I am different from all of you. I'm a variant of Cross-Dominance. There is a scientific word for it, but try as I may, I have never been able to find it. The furtherest I ever got was to the 'cross-dominance' part. Back in the early 90s, when I was still listening to "All Things Considered", the show did a special report on these folks, and I was all ears. Well, almost, because I failed to remember the term.

These people, who have this, have all dexterity actions in one hand, and all power functions in their other hand. I am left handed with all dexterity, and right handed with all power actions.

Its very, very rare, and there are certain characteristics that set us apart. On average we have the highest IQ, are the most creative, have a higher percentage of Nobel laureates, yadda, yadda, yadda. Why aren't I blessed with all this? S6

But on the down side, the group has the highest incidence of clinical depression, homosexuality, suicide, and some others. Other then the homosexual part, I fit the bill for the rest of the negatives.

Anyway, with my 'so called' left brained answer, I'm not so sure if it is relative in my case.

I certainly wish I knew the name for what I really have. It's been evading me since the early nineties, and I'm not going to feel half way comfortable until I find out.

G4U, dead is not sober, but I have heard of such a thing as dead drunk. I have also heard of something called terminal stupidity, which might be applied to all lefty liberals of the Kennedy-Reid-Pilosi ilk.

Quote:Some researchers have suggested that mixed-handedness indicates that the pattern of dominance is not that which is typically seen in most people, i.e. it is less clear that one hemisphere is dominant over the other. One study has suggested that ADHD is linked to having a weaker function in the right hemisphere of the brain, which could help explain why some of the mixed-handed students in today's study had symptoms of ADHD.

Dr Alina Rodriguez, the lead researcher on the study from the School of Public Health at Imperial College London, said: "Mixed-handedness is intriguing - we don't know why some people prefer to make use of both hands when most people use only one. Our study is interesting because it suggests that some children who are mixed handed experience greater difficulties in school than their left- and right-handed friends. We think that there are differences in the brain that might explain these difficulties, but there needs to be more research.

Incidentally, Beethoven, Einstein and Leonardo di Vinci, all had this same trait I have. So why haven't I done something earth shattering? Sigh..................

I see both as well. Does anyone else see the backflip?
