There are 2 schools of thought about the theory that people are generally left brained or right brained. One believes that it’s a myth, the other believes that it’s a fact. I’m presenting two articles so you can form your own conclusions about the matter.

An article on CNN‘s website offers information on being left-brained or right-brained and how more information about this can help you figure out how to improve, among others, your habits regarding organizing.

Another article we want to present to you is culled from About.com/Psychology. With regards the theory that people are either left brained or right brained , this piece sides with the opinion that it’s a myth. On the contrary, Psychology affirms that it’s the truth based on the lateralization of brain function. Roger W. Sperry, a 1981 Nobel Prize winner, started more studies along with colleagues about brain split based on findings that in the 19th century research on patients with brain injuries, led to suspect that the brain’s “language center” was situated in the left portion. One resulted in the discovery that people with lesions in two specific areas on the left side of the brain lost their facility of using a language. In short, they started using sign language because by then they are not able to talk.

Here’s a brain test that will help you learn more about whether you are right-brained or left-brained.
