    Like men and women, yin and yang, one side of the brain isn`t much good without the other, eh?

    These always look biased to me. Just because you`re logical and scientific doesn`t mean you`re plain and boring.

    Why is it always left OR right?
    People need to grasp the concept of using their whole brain.

    i agree DrProfessor. Since the left side of the brain is more logical and scientific, I would imagine the Religious fanatics would be mre right centric.

    This is old. It was dumb when I first saw it, and it is still dumb now. Also, a lot of the `art` we see these days wouldn`t be possible without the left side of the brain: scientists and engineers.

    @BlankTom I don`t really think you understand the brain. Go read about it from a more concrete source. This picture doesn`t really do it justice.

    This myth has been around for way too long. Your brain does complex tasks such as reason and art using both sides of the brain. So... artsy-fartsy I suppose. :)

    Without the logic and mathematics of the left brain, the arts would not exist.
    All art is mathematically based.Music, painting, poetry, would not exist without logic, mathematics and a strategic mind.
    Every guitar riff, stroke of the brush and poetic stanza all boils down to the left brain.

    Creativity and logic are so intertwined that I cannot differentiate. This division makes no sense to me.

    "Just because you`re logical and scientific doesn`t mean you`re plain and boring."

    It`s not plain or boring, it`s crisp and neat and organized.

    This idea has been pretty well debunked by neuroscience.Good article about it

    But I do like the picture.

    It`s the "brainy" people that make the cool poo (cellphones, lasers, cars, rockets). So i support them as opposed to the people that twist a bunch of metal together until they are bored with it and call it an accomplishment. Some artists do create cool things though, but some of them are a waste of oxygen. I guess that statement is true with all types of people though.

    Nobody and nothing you do requires just one side of the brain. For example, writing requires both the skills to write coherently and the ideas to express.

    I`m artsy fartsy. But I am working on being ambidextrous. So hopefully I can be a bit more brainy ha nothing is impossible.

    I love how many comments are suggesting that the two are mutually exclusive. My left side was so dominant that my Broca`s and Wernicke`s areas worked together to persuade the other side to store some of my extra rationality. Also, 97% of people are left-side dominant.

    I`m taking the expression "I have two left feet" and changing it to "I have two left brains", and then applying it to myself.
