This is one of those silly, time-wasting, end-of-week kind of things that I find mesmerizing. Take a look at the following video which is supposed to test if you are more left-brain or right brain oriented. Naturally, I came up more on the side of the right brain, which is not surprising. Anyone with more of an artistic bent and lacking common sense (hey, you take the good with the bad) would come up a right brainer, right?
Anyway, take a look at the video. Where do you come up?
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.
LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
words and language
present and past
math and science
knows object name
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
"big picture" oriented
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
knows object function
