Brain Dominance

by Joseph Maldonado, Period-6


Hemisphericity lies on the fact of that our brains are divided into two sections, which are the left and right hemispheres. Hemisphericity has led to a popular urban trend, and it is that people actually have a dominate side and because of this they have certain stronger traits. This leads us to the Theory of Brain Dominance.

Brain Dominance

Brain Dominance is the idea a certain brain hemisphere is stronger than the other. This leads to people being left or right handed or the expressing of certain traits. For example, if a person is of left brain dominance, they would be classified as more logical. While, if a person was of right brain dominance, they would be classified as more abstract and creative.

Test Yourself

If you are unsure of whether you are more a more logical or abstract thinker, simply take this quiz and get a rough idea.


For me I scored a perfect 50/50, which makes sense since I've never been one to think of my logical and creative products to be unbalanced. Now go see if you're the same.
