    THE "BRAIN"

      

    DO YOU USE THE LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN?

    Here is a BRAIN test you can do TO FIND OUT  = Averiguar

    http://braintest.sommer-sommer.com/en/

    How our BRAIN works  = Como funciona nuestro cerebro

    All human brains are very similar. The brain is divided into two hemispheres which are a little different. The left side is for all kinds of communication. The right side of the brain receives and analyses information from the outside world. More than ninety percent of the population is right-handed and these people use the left hemishpere more, and if you´re left-handed you use the right side of the brain more. There are investigations which say that male and female brains may work differently in some things, but when it is related to problem-solving activities, the male and female brain works in the same way. Do we at times use one side and at other moments use the other side, or can we use both sides of the brain at the same time, which sounds more logical?

    Or perhaps all of this is "HOGWASH"  

    As said before, "LEFTIES" use the right side of the brain which is more holistic thinking (emphasizing the importance of the whole). They are more creative and visual thinkers. It is also said that "lefties" are more "CLUMSY"; it is because they have to use tools , which are made for right-handed people.

    And it is said that right-handed people use the left side of the brain which is more for linear thinking (organize thoughts in a step by step way).  Is this true or not?

    It is also said that all the great artists and musicians use the right side of the brain more. Is this true?

    Another important question is how much of the brain do people use. It is said we only use10%, but is this true, or do use we more?  I´m sure there are brain-training exercises that we can do to increase this precentage and perhaps use 100% of the brain. Or do we already use 100% of the brain!
