Myth Of The Left-Brained Vs. Right-Brained Personality Debunked, Say Researchers
With the explosive application of new technologies over the past decades, knowledge of the brain has grown exponentially. In particular, imaging techniques have allowed scientists to investigate the regions and functioning of the brain and deepen their overall understanding of how our minds work. With this new information, old theories have been reviewed and, in some cases, discarded.
For instance, it certainly remains true that the brain is divided into two hemispheres, right and left. Yet, the theory that 'right-brained' people — those who more frequently rely on their right brain — are creative, thoughtful, and subjective, while 'left-brained' people are logical, detail-oriented, and analytical is, according to University of Utah neuroscientists, not the least bit accurate.
