Totally oversimplified, I know. There’s plenty of new research shows how brains can adapt to injury. Left brain functions can be taken over by right hemisphere and vice versa. The neuroplasticity of the brain is remarkable, even if it has a dark side.
But anyway, this image and the descriptions below is just plain fun.
The left brain
I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.”
The right brain:
“I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.
What side do I use most?
When I worked in the biotech field, I was utilizing my left brain. Now that I’ve left my field, I’m more creative (minus the sound of roaring laughter – the sad legacy of PTSD).
I have more access to my whole brain.
What about you? Which side do you feel at home in?
