The mind is a powerful thing and I love the science behind left brain-right brain characteristics. But I don’t want to go deep into the science because Mom sent me this great email today that is just too fun. Of course, sharing is one of my better qualities. (smile)
First, look at this picture to determine if you see the lady turning clockwise or counter clockwise.
If you see this lady turning clockwise, you are supposed to be using your right brain.
If you see it turning the other way, (the lady turning counter-clockwise) you are supposed to be using your left brain.
Some people can make the lady turn both ways, but most people see it turning just one way. Only about 15% of the United States population can see her or make her move both ways.
What does it mean to be left brain or right brain?
Research has shown that people who are dominated by the right side of the brain are:
- extremely imaginative
- animated talkers that use their hands
- do not like to follow rules that seem unimportant to them
- able to dream in color
- sensitive to smells and knows your perfume with just a whiff
- often perceived as lacking values or wishy washy/on the fence
People who are dominated by the left brain are:
- analyze the facts
- evaluate to determine problem
- plan and constant goal setters
- high expectations of self
- make well thought out decisions
- slow to react
- able to easily focus on tasks
After looking at the lady in the picture and watching her turn both ways, I was totally mesmerized! As I stare at her, she appears to turn one way and then the other almost like dancing or ballet. It is just too cool!
So I found a test and after taking it, my score stated that I am 39.6 % right brain and 60.4% left brain. I’m fascinated with my own brain!
Let’s measure your left brain and right brain too. Take the test and then come back with your score and tell us!
You still remember the difference between a man and woman’s brain too, don’t you? hee hee hee
