Right Brain vs. Left Brain cage match!

| Oct. 15, 2007

Wow, a blog post about a blog post, what is the world coming to? Anyway, my friend thePete found an article from the Australian Herald Sun about how to determine if you’re more right-brained or left-brained, with right and left being shorthand for “creative” versus “logical”.

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test … do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

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

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

You Spin me Right Round, Tiny Dancer

I don’t know what “anti-clockwise” is supposed to mean; maybe it has something to do with the Coriolis effect. It is Australia after all.

What I do know is that I work as a web programmer by day and am a total slouch by night. Looking at the spinning dancer at work, she rotates to the right (anti-un-clockwise?), but when I’m at home (or say, updating my website while at work), she spins to the left. So I can actually see when my brain switches from the left to the right hemisphere. Though not particularly left- or right-brained, I’ve got an integrated/mixed brain, which means for an artist I’m a pretty good programmer. And as a programmer, I’m a much better artist.

I think that’s what you call an “integrated” blessing.

    Wow–she changed direction like three times just while I read this post. Apparently your writing has an “integrated” effect on my brain.
