Which side controls more of your brain?

What is Brain Hemisphericity

Hemisphericity refers to the idea that people may rely on a preferred mode of cognitive processing, which is linked to activity on the part of the left or right cerebral hemispheres. Four methods have been used in hemisphereicity research: lateral eye-movements, electrophysiological measures, questionnaires, and cognitive tests.

Myself

I took 3 different tests myself to figure out what side i used most and I received scores of 66.67% on one, 50% exactly on another, and 57.89% on the last. All Left side oriented except the 50% because that one was even. The average of these is 58.19% for left side, which I can agree with. I am a very analytical and logical thinker but I think I can be creative as well sometimes.
