Right-Brained/Left-Brained Fun

By
Real Estate Agent with Village Real Estate Services, Inc.

The older I get the more amazed I am at how our brains function.  There are some days, I'm just grateful the synapses fire at all.  One of the things I find most interesting about our brains is how the left and right hemispheres each have their own set of functions. 

Interestingly, lenders tend to be left-brained and real estate agents tend to be right-brained.  Some people have even evolved into being whole-brained and can do both.  Here's a little chart that's kind of fun.  It really points out how both hemispheres of the brain do their own thing.  Fair warning, the chart can really put a hitch in your giddyup.  Try reading it out loud.

Marlene, that was fun.  I struggled through it, but laughed as I did so.

Even when you try to concentrate on saying the color, you don't know if you said it or not.  Try writing with your left hand if your right handed.

Interestingly enough, when trying to say the actual word, I can't help but look for the color its written in!

Marlene ~ Am I CRAZY? I didn't have any problems with this and I thought that I would.  Maybe I'm too focused.

That was fun!  I probably sounded a little "slow" because I was trying so hard.  :)

Mott - Maggie - Doreen - Kaushik - Venice - Glad you tried it.  It's really fun to do this in a large class.  Give it a try next time you need to loosen up a group.

 

Paula - Congrats-you must be whole brained.  I can do it, too if I really concentrate. Try giving the test to some co-workers and you'll see what fun it is for most people.

 

Thanks everyone for playing along!

That was a struggle.  Seeing the color and word, but they didn't match.  I wonder if this sort of exercise makes your brain stronger?  If so, I'm going to practice everyday!

I don't know if it will make your brain stronger, but eventually you probably could memorize the correct answers...good question.

Marlene... this was great. I actually got through it very quickly, with the correct colors.  I wonder what the fastest time would be.  ;o)

Hey Jeff - That means that both hemispheres of your brain are working together.  I can read it pretty fast too.  NO stats on speed on this one.  It is a fun thing to take to a seminar and flash on the screen.  When you get everyone to read it aloud it's pretty funny.

Have a great Sunday!
