L is for Left-brained #atozchallenge

Day 12 of the Blogging from A to Z April challenge. Today’s topic: left-brained.

Despite my creativity, I’m solidly left-brained. I love symmetry, to the point of rearranging my eggs in the carton so that the sides are even.  Give me differential equations and I’m a happy camper.  Throw birds at pigs?  No thanks, I’ll stick with sudoku.

Language is no exception.  I love the patterns among languages, from Romance languages sharing common roots, to the rules for verb conjugation.  I use Latin and Greek roots as vocab words in my classroom, hoping to pass pattern awareness on to my students.

As a result of my search for patterns, I often see themes in things I read and write that might not be intended. But I don’t think this is bad; it takes my appreciation and understanding to a deeper level.

Are you right-brained or left-brained?  How does that manifest itself when you read or write?

  1. Definitely left brained. I seem to be in the minority of A-Z participants who aren’t authors.
