Left Brained, Right Handed
Strengths of left hemispheric dominance
A dominant trait of left brained people is logical processing, the step by step deductive reasoning when presented with a problem. This type of thinking and processing is used most often in problem solving, where logic and proof are key players in the outcome and solution to a problem. This type of processing can be seen in science classes or even on shows such as "CSI", where students or detectives start with a hypothesis and, using facts and proof, try to prove or disprove their hypothesis.
Left brained people also focus on the reality of a situation when processing information. These type of people are very aware of what certain rules and regulations are and how they need to follow them. Left-brained people focus on the reality, not drifting off into "imagination" but focusing on what is actually feasible, the opposite of right-brain thinking.
Left brained people are more inclined to think sequentially, from beginning to last. This tool is important throughout life, from the organization of homework to budgeting salaries. It is most often seen in the planning and creation/implementation of activities or projects. Unlike right brained people, who jump to the end before thinking something through from beginning to end, left brained people are more likely to start at the beginning and work their way to the end, tackling complications as they come up or trying to think of them beforehand.
