Right Brain vs Left Brain

On one of the forums I sometimes lurk at there was a link to this Herald Sun article…by looking at the dancer and how she spins will tell you if you are right brain dominant or left brain dominant.  Which are you???

I am surprised to find out that I am right brain dominant.  I really thought I was more left brain dominant.  At one point in my life I was tested for right vs left brain at a workshop and I was at an equal balance between the two.  hmmmm…….

And, I could not make the dancer change directions at all.  Could you??? 

Right Brain functions:

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

uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies


  1. Very bizarre…when I looked last night (very late), she was going clockwise and that made very little sense to me since I’m pretty certain my left brain dominates…

    This morning she’s spinning the other way!

  2. always clockwise for me. How are you suppose to concentrate to change it?? hmmmmmmm LOL…I will have to show this one to Brian and Dan and see which they are.
