Right brain vs. left brain: Which do you use more?

Filed under: ,

You've probably heard that the brain consists of two distinct lobes -- the right and the left. The right is responsible for imagination, feelings and creativity, while the left is responsible for logic, details and facts. Want to know which lobe is dominant for you? Go to this link, look at the picture of the dancer and focus on which way she is turning. Is it clockwise? Or counter-clockwise?

If clockwise is your answer, you use your right brain more often. If you saw her moving in the other direction, you use your left. If you look really hard and focus on the dancer, you can see that she changes direction.

For me, she was turning counter-clockwise, which means my left lobe is more dominant -- therefore I'm more logical. What about you?
