Right left brain differences

Right/Left Brain Differences

  • Left Hemisphere

    • Language (literal interpretations)

    • Calculations

  • Right Hemisphere

    • Making inferences

    • Helps make the meaning of our speech clear

    • Controls sense of “self”


Facts about handedness

Facts About “Handedness”

  • 90% are right-handed

  • 96% of right-handed people process language in their left hemisphere

  • 10% are left-handed

  • 70% process language in left hemisphere, just like right-handed people

  • 30% process language in right hemisphere—or in both


Left handedness

Left-Handedness

  • More common among:

  • Musicians

  • Mathematicians

  • Professional baseball/cricket players

  • Architects

  • Artists

    • Michelangelo, da Vinci, Picasso
