Are you left or right handed?

Well, they say the left side of your body is controlled by the right half of your brain (so only left handed people are in their right mind :lol:), and vice versa. The right half supposedly is the creative and fun side of your brain. So I was interested... how many of you are left handed?

I'm left handed and so are two of my three brothers, the oldest lefty also being a designer. :rolleyes:

Ok I'm right handed but according to this test I'm 10/8 right brained meaning I should be left handed. I'd say its more realistic, as 1 question could have been answered either way, that I'm pretty much evenly distributed :) I can actually use my left hand pretty well except for things like throwing a ball and writing (I can write but its mirrored text - good for arabic I suppose :))

Which Side Do You Use?

You responded as a right brained person to 10 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 8questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most. The summary briefly describes your dominance type. Remember, this only represents half of the picture. After you read the description, click on the link at the bottom of the page to find out how to use this information to improve your study strategies. Do not forget to print your results, if your instructor has requested you to do so.

Some of the traits associated with the right side of the brain are listed in the table. Not all of the traits will apply to you. Remember, we use both side of our brain, but your right sides gets the most exercise.

Type of Cognitive Processing and Brief Description
Holisitc Processing information from whole to part; sees the big picture first, not the details.
Random Processing information with out priority, jumps form one task to another.
Concrete Processes things that can be seen , or touched - real objects.
Intuitive Processes information based on whether or not it feels right know answer but not sure how it was derived.
Nonverbal Processes thought as illustrations.
Fantasy-Oriented Processes information with creativity; less focus on rules and regulations

Less than 10% of the world population is left handed...

You responded as a right brained person to 16 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 2questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most.
But the test is kinda compromised, I might've answered to get that score subconsciously. Oh, and I couldn't answer the first one because there are almost always influential factors, and I couldn't picture the situation in my mind...
