Left side of the brain is the artistic half

Nope, the right side is the creative/artistic side.

Thank goodness for that.  I am not creative at all and I was very much to the left hand side.  I would hate to think I should always have been creative and failed miserably!!  big_laugh

There is a serious side to this - my Mother has dementia. The doctor at the memory clinic told us that on the left side of her brain there is an area which is non-functioning, and in the area of the memory. He thinks it is possibly due to minor strokes, though couldn't say for sure.

The results from this quiz suggests most of us are left-sided (aren't they?) - I just wonder if the left side is 'worked' more than the right, which could possibly explain the large number of dementia sufferers.

Of course I could be barking up the wrong tree, or just barking, like Aly suggests ..... big_laugh   big_laugh

I might be barking, but I am Right side dominant, but quite ambidextrous.  I think that accounts for my total inability to do anything mathematical.

I'll try that again!

? aha, so you are right-sided dominant - see, there had to be a reason .....   big_laugh

Another interesting thing - do we all have our brains compartmentalised in the same format, I wonder?

One would think so, for the doc to say that Mother's memory is affected, I suppose ... although is it possible that some are not formatted in the same way.

Golly, this is getting a bit too deep - I'm not sure if this is something I should worry about ! whistle

I think our brains are compartmentalised, see here and scroll down to the image of a brain.  It makes rather interesting reading.

I'll try that again!

I got 8 for right and 8 for left does that mean I am level headed.

I was born left handed, which was a stigma back in the '50s so my mum tied my left hand behind my back until I learned to use my right by default. Only last week i researched any recorded side effects as an adult and there are none significant apparently, apart from crappy handwriting.

I think my brain is back to front and upside down monster 

Left Brain Dominance: 11(11)
Right Brain Dominance: 6(6)
