Right vs. Left Brain

____________________________________________ Are you right or left brain dominant?



General characteristics

Right Brain Characteristics:


Left Brain Characteristics:



The differences between the two hemispheres of the brain, left and right brain.

The persons nature largely depends on which part of his brain dominates the nervous system.

The right brain is intuitive, meaning it is led by feelings,
The left brain is analytical, meaning it is led by logical approach towards problems.

Right brain tends to make lateral connection from the derived information,
Left brain tends to make logical deductions from the derived information.

The right brain is visual, stressing on music and pattern,
The left brain is verbal, stressing on words, numbers and symbols.

Right brained people struggle with mathematical formulas and words to express themselves,
Left brained people are very good at memorizing mathematical formulas and also express them pretty well.

In people with right brain domination, organizational skills are very poor,
People with left brain domination are highly organized.

People with right brain don’t give attention to minute details,
People with left brain tend to focus on each and every minute detail and step taken.

When given a task of assembling a particular thing, right brain people will start working promptly without reading the instructions,
Left brained people will carefully go through the instructions and then start working.

When people with right brain communicate, they tend to make many gestures with their hands,
Left brain people hardly use gestures when communicating.

Right brain is designed to listen to ‘how’ something is being said,
Left brain is designed to listen to ‘what’ is being said.

Although right brained people don’t rationalize things they do have the tendency to question the rules,
Left brained people never question rules, instead they readily accept them.


People with dominant right brain have difficulty in prioritizing things which makes them execute things in hurry at the last moment, whereas people with dominant left brain are well versed with planning the future which makes them be prepared well in advance.
