The Right Brain vs Left Brain

I stole this from Jeff.

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or counterclockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning counterclockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.


LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS

detail oriented
facts rule

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS

can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
believes & appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous & risk taking
