Right and Left Brain Dominance: Which are You?

Right Brain Dominant:


  • When given a task, you want to know why it is important because you like to see the big picture.
  • You don’t need to make lists becasue you like to “just wing it.”
  • You prefer painting or doing something artistic over doing puzzles becasue you enjoy being creative.
  • When traveling, you like spontaneous adventure. When things are too structured or planned it seems to wreck the excitement.
  • You are very visual. You like textbooks, paintings, and photographs.
  • You can remember a persons face but not necessarily their name.
  • Organization is not a number one priority. Your desk may look messy but you know where everything is in your mind.
  • Have to pay extra attention to the time. Usually running late, even if you meant to be on time.
  • Usually globally visionary people.
