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?
