With that in mind here are some facts about the The left brain and right brain theory.
What is the left brain and right brain theory?
The theory originated in 1960, with the research of psychobiologist Nobel Prize winner Robert W. Perry. Few years later the theory was then discredited by a team of neuroscientist set out to test his premise. The theory implies that people are either left-brained or right-brained, meaning that one side of their brain is dominant.
