Right brain versus left brain

Left versus right brain

If you have ever wondered why you act the way you do, the answer may lie in which side of your brain you tend to use more. It’s said that right-brain people have different skills and preferences than those who are left-brain people. Well, I’m definitely a brain-brain person, because I tend to think more creatively and act upon things, and that is also why I am studying Public Relations! I think that Public Relations should at all times be a right-brain. Left- brain people belong in accounting or even in engineering.

So right brain vs. left brain – what’s the difference?

The human brain is a complex organ responsible for intelligence, senses, movement, and behaviour. The brain is quite an amazing organ and just imagines how people would have been without any brains… we would’ve been monkeys without brains. Lol!

We all have a right and left brain, just some people uses more of the one side than the other side of their brain. The right and the left brain each performs different functions and communicates information with each other. If you hear someone say “I’m a right-brained or a left-brained individual.” Well this is actually called brain dominance.

How do you know if you are a right-brained?

Well here are some clues:

  • Right-brain people have characteristics such as being creative, the ability to see patterns, spatial awareness, and the understanding of how things relate to one another in different contexts.
  • You may also find that you are good at recognizing faces, places, and objects.
  • Right-brains think “Out-of-the-box”.
  • Art, including the ability to draw, paint, sculpt, etc.
  • Imaginative thinking.
  • Music, including the ability to play instruments with ease or to recognize a song melody and play it back upon “hearing it”.

How do you know if you are a left-brained?

Well here are some clues:

  • Left-brain people have characteristics such as the gift for language, analytical skills, and mathematical concepts such as time and sequence.
  • You may find you are good with letters, numbers, and words.
  • Language skills including reading, writing, and speaking
  • Maths
  • Logic and reasoning
  • Science

Gosh, I think to be a Public Relations Practitioner, you should be a little bit of both brains. Because we have to think outside the box, have creative thinking; be good with letters, language, writing and speaking.
