Left/right brain

Most of us are versed in using either the left or right hand as the master writing hand with a majority of the denizens on this planet being right-handed.

With right-handers, their main perception of the world is via their left-brains, the more logical part of the organ. The vice versa applies to the left-handed who are supposedly to have a flair for arts and creativity. I know of people equally versed in using the left and right hands as their writing hands; in my opinion, these would be very successful people in the future as they can be equally competent in both the logical and emotional aspects of life.

The type of writing hand one uses is just but one of the many indicators of the predisposition one have either to the arts or science, it can never be the sole indicator. Over time, one’s predisposition may change and be skewed to the other side as a result of experiences encountered in life or evolution over time.

I am always more skewed to the logical side but only recently did I discover that I have a creative flair and have the appreciation for the arts and music. This artistic side was ingrained in me earlier years of my life and it slowly, gradually and surely evolved as I grew up. I have since found a liking for all genres of music, have a flair for writing and appreciation of the finer things in life. I just hope that the cognitive side of me does not falter as I hone my other creative half.
