Left/Right Brain Test

Are You Left-brained or Right-brained?

This test is based on the left brain/right brain dominance theory. According to this theory “left-brained” and “right-brained” individuals have a huge difference in behavior, personality traits and cognitive strategies.

Human brain is really divided into two halves, or hemispheres. Each of these halves has particular areas control certain functions.

Understand yourself better with left/right brain test results

So the left brain is connected to:

  • language learning abilities
  • logical reasoning
  • speech and writing abilities
  • information storage and analysiss
  • math skills

Functions of the right brain:

  • music and rhythm
  • imagination and emotions
  • arts and creativity
  • sexual preferences
  • recognizing faces

The idea of different approaches in teaching people with a different dominant brain became especially popular in the 70s of the last century. Thus, for people with a dominant left hemisphere, appropriate educational programs were developed based on rational and logically substantiated tasks. For “right-brained” people - on creativity and emotions received in the learning process.

Problems with the theory

To date, the benefits of separating students on this basis have not received significant scientific evidence. In addition, an extensive study by Jared A. Nielsen showed that human behavior cannot be “left-brained” or “right-brained”, because our brain is much more complex and those properties that were previously attributed to only one part of the brain should be interpreted as whole-brain properties.
