Follow up: Which hemisphere of the brain am I using?

This article is a follow up to the previous article which demonstrates a test for indicating which cerebral hemisphere is being used.

Further reading on the internet revealed that there are certain traits for right and left brained people which can also be used to identify them.


+ Dominant left brained person: "If you study sitting up erect, you may be left lobe. The left hemisphere of the brain processes information from part to whole. In order to draw conclusions, it first takes pieces, lines them up and arranges them in logical order. When left-brain students read or listen, they look for pieces so that they can draw logical conclusions. They have no problem comprehending or expression oral or written language. The functions of the left hemisphere of the brain are verbal, rational, realistic, and rigid. Some problematic characteristics, which exist in the right hemisphere of the brain, are emotional comprehension and procession of symbols." [1] "The left mode is the "right-handed", left-hemisphere mode that is foursquare, upright, sensible, direct, true, hard-edged, unfanciful and forceful" [2]

+ Dominant right brained person: If you prefer studying while lying down, you may be more right lobe. "The right hemisphere processes information from whole to parts. Usually it sees the whole picture first before the details. If you are right brain, it may be difficult for you to follow a lecture without the professor had given the outline first." [1]. The right mode is the "left-handed, right hemisphere mode that is curvy, flexible, more playful in its unexpected twist and turns, more complex, diagonal and fanciful [2].

Test for determination: Look at this previous article. This article shows that such ambiguous images can be used for showing perception, but they do not really indicate which side of the brain you are using. Another test can be used to determine this objectively.
