My biggest problem is that the whole left-brain right-brain idea is just wrong. It is based on a study that showed that different hemispheres of the brain did different things - eg, the part of our brain that processes language is on the left. However, our brain is very much built to work as a whole unit, and neither side is dominant over the other. Using language as the continued example, the part of our brain that processes emphasis and intonation is in the right hemisphere of the brain. So if you hear me say "Parelli is AMAZING" and you can detect that I am using sarcasm in that sentence, your brain would be working as a whole unit, as intended.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
