What is my PERSONALITY?

Definition:  Did you know that your brain is made up of two halves?  The left side of your brain controls the right side of your body, and the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body.  

A scientist named Roger Sperry discovered that each half of the brain has different characteristics and abilities.  The left half is logical, analytical, and used for verbal tasks.  The right half is used for creative thinking.

Though people use both sides of their brain, people who tend to be more of a logical thinker are referred to as "left-brained" and those who are more creative are "right-brained".  Thinking about how our brain function can tell us more about our personality style.
