That's why you deaden it with alcohol. Duh!

Wow, left lobe dominant people are more likely to be conformists. Who knew!?

Lucky for me, I only have one brain.

Oh for f*ck's sake, this sh*t again. YOU DON'T WORK THAT WAY!
Want a good idea of how the left hemisphere and right hemisphere differentially contribute towards cognition, read "Human: The Science Behind What Makes Us Unique" by Micahel Gazzaniga and/or "Two Sides of the Brain" by Sidney Segalowitz. Both are very accessible to the general laypublic, and cover a good balance of breadth and depth of the topic. Leave this kind of pop-neuroscience oversimplification sh*t alone.

A brain studying the workings of a brain is like asking your jerkoff hand if you're good in bed.

You put your left brain in
You pull your left brain out
You fall down on the floor and you spasm all about
You bleed out and die because
you tore your left brain out

That's what it's all about.

There's a link at the bottom of the article, however, that does lead to some decent advice, some common sense, about how to approach brain health.

I'm very analytical/logical, and i'm very creative/artistic... so what does that make me?

It's like you're unraveling a big cable-knit sweater that someone keeps knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting...
 
2013-02-15 03:22:45 PM
soon, some idiot right-winger is going to point out that I am being "logical" and not that it is merely my brain playing a trick on me.

Oh yeah?  I'll teach it not to mess with me!

The jokes on him; he'll shoot both halves that way. The trick is to shot from the front back through the left side, while missing the right side.

All kidding aside, TFA is not only complete shiat in terms of science... it's also poorly written and uninteresting. It's the trifecta of suck!

My brain has been dominated by a strange presence ever since that day I saw those rocks on Mystery Mountain.
 
2013-02-15 04:41:44 PM
so I'm right-brain dominant. I'm also left handed. Makes sense. Creativity, English, writing, and "outside the box" thinking has always been my thing.
 
2013-02-15 04:50:19 PM
For Fs sake...  People still believe this crap?

Hemispheric dominance isn't real.

Yeah I was about to chime in glad someone beat me to it.

On a side note, anyone know how to unlock that 90% of the brain we are not using?
 
2013-02-15 06:21:51 PM
That was written by someone with half a brain.

/JK.  You are not using "just 10% of your brain."
 
2013-02-15 08:17:47 PM
TFA headline claimed that it would advise me on what I could do about these tricks.  TFA did not follow through on that promise.  0/10, would not think about (with any part of the brain).

My brain tricks me all the time. It's all like, "yo, man, she's probably not crazy. Not this one, surely. What are the odds?"

You mean the vast support structure for the 10% that does the thinking? 90% of your brain is coolant/food delivery for the neurons. If you're not using it, you're dead. In other words, everyone is using 100% of their brain. Whether they're using it to its full potential is quite a different matter.

I don't think that's your brain pulling that trick...

It's working on contract,  on behalf of another.
