Well only one way to find out.Im making an assumption that Im slightly more right brained than left brained.
I have played music since I was 15 years old of various instruments, and also been naturally talented at art at a very young age.
However now Ive switched to a science major and am doing well, which leads me to believe I am using more left brained attributes currently.
Not to derail the thread, but your avatar location is where I live, and I was there just last night.That website describes the attributes as if the left brain is superior in every single description. Obviously written by a left brain dominant person. When you compare the MBTI cognitive functions with this system, they don't seem to match the way I would expect. It seems as though right hemisphere dominance would match with sensors. Except for the holistic view point. And that left hemisphere would match with intuitives.
How is it that so many intuitives do so well in left hemisphere things like math and other sciences? How is it that so many sensors do so well in artistic right hemisphere activities? Maybe that is just too strict of an interpretation.
The only thing I can see that may help right hemisphere dominant people with the sciences is visualization and creativity, and also a holistic view point.
Oh yeah, I scored high on right hemisphere 14 to 5.
Well you could be right. But I just don't want to take another damn test. I feel like I use both them same amount. But not at the same time if that makes sense. I might be more Left. That's logic right?
But how are you going to rule the world if you don't take another test? My guess is going to be left.Well you could be right. But I just don't want to take another damn test.

IDk, which do you think? I'm curious now.
Most likely practical application would probably be to learn how to work on the weaker hemisphere. Especially for students who, according to the link, need to learn how to make lists and organize themselves.What is the practicaly application of finding out if you're right or left brain dominant?
I hope I'm not being redundant being among other NTs, but I'll include my disclaimer. I'm not hating on this thread, I am honestly asking. :happy:
This was very interesting, and I will comment more later when I'm not using my phone to type but I am actually surprised that more women are not known for being left brain dominant.Well from what I have read most women are left brain dominant and most men are right brain dominant. Women tend to have highly verbal and conversational skills while men tend to be less developed in that area (caveman theories). Though men do often feel they use logic a bit more than women making them believe they are left brained. People tend to believe that women are more creative, artsy, musical, use symbols/imagery more and the fact that they like decorating causing them to think they are right brain dominant. But it's actually quite the opposite so I guess what I have read holds true.
Do you know who created the first computer programming language? It was a woman and her name was Grace Hopper. The only way I see it ever being developed is through a highly left brained dominant person who posess mathematics, scientific, words, language, and logic skills. But if this is true then don't you think it's kind of strange that the math and science fields are primarily made up of men? But I guess subjects of interests play a role in this strangeness.
But many are either highly left brain or highly right brain dominant. There are very few people who are actually balanced brain. I've never actually met another dual brain person though but I'll tell you what it feels like being a dual brainer. My brain is constantly playing tug-of-war fighting each other to develop an answer or solution. A famous dual brainer is Leonardo Da Vinci, he excelled at multiple subjects because he was able to use his whole brain instead of only half of one side.
LEFT BRAIN - RIGHT BRAINThis was very interesting, and I will comment more later when I'm not using my phone to type but I am actually surprised that more women are not known for being left brain dominant.
Are you quite certain of your findings that most women should be left brained or is this a theory you have come up with?
If you have any sources that explain what you've written I'd love to read some.
