People pledge allegiance to their nation, to their hometown team and to their favorite alcohol. Claiming that you are a proponent for one thing more than another helps you figure out who you are, and the same goes for people who determine which side of their brain they identify with more. As a self-declared right-brain person myself, I feel that these traits have helped to determine who I am and how I perceive the world. While categorizing oneself as a right-brain person is no better (or worse) than identifying with left-brain tendencies, it certainly does allow for a different way of life…
- When you run into somebody you just met, you remember their face, but you can’t remember their name for the life of you. This results in you trying to prove that they themselves are memorable, but their name is not. To do this, you go into creepy detail about what they were wearing when you met, the song that you both said was your favorite at the moment and the weird thing they did with their face when you said that you think Ed Sheeran is one of the sexiest men alive. They will get the point that you remember them – they may even think you remember your interaction with them too well.
- When somebody really hurts you, you cannot hide it – you have tried every trick in the book to keep yourself from crying, but it is almost impossible to conceal when you feel truly saddened.
- You use songs and music to connect to yourself and to also connect with others. When you are feeling a certain way, you have a certain type of genre or a perfect playlist to fit your mood. When it comes to music theory, however, you know jack shit. Doesn’t matter, though; you know that feeling the music is just as important as understanding how it is created.
- You think foreign languages and accents are the sexiest things around… but when you tried to learn them in school you completely zoned out. Conjugations aren’t your thing, and they never will be.
- You cursed out the math and science sections of the ACT and/or SAT. You knew that you were smart and that you are capable, but those areas are like an arrow to your heel.
- You are constantly having wonderfully creative ideas. You want to be more profound than writing them down in a note on your phone, so instead you have multiple journals and pieces of paper that you write them down on. You will write them in your phone if need be, but where’s the resourcefulness in that?
- Your memory is on point; you just tend to remember specifics instead of the big picture. For example, you may not know when’s or where’s, but you can remember the who’s and the why’s.
- You don’t like math because you hate the idea that there can only be one answer to every problem.
- In school, you flourished in your English courses because not only did you connect and relate to the work you were studying, but you also are a master at bullshitting.
- You know when something is wrong with somebody, whether they are your best friend or a perfect stranger.
- You like to pretend that your life is a movie. You pick songs to walk around to as if they are the perfect track for your soundtrack, and you look around as if you are a camera panning around a scene.
- It may not always seem like the most logical thing to do, but you always go with your gut feeling.
- You tune-in to your surroundings very well, because you know there is always something new to discover.
- When you love, you love deeply, whole-heartedly and intensely. When you hurt, you hurt deeply, whole-heartedly and intensely. When you have any emotion in-between, you feel it deeply, whole-heartedly and intensely.
