I have wondered for years if there is a correlation between atheism and left or right hemispherical dominance in the brain. I am right brained, (and left handed) 11/5. You can take the test yourself to determine your dominant side.

I know the right brain is visually, emotionally, and creatively motivated and the left is logical, systematic, and mathamatical. I would like to know if there is a predominance of one side over the other in atheism.

I guess that means I'm relatively "balanced"?
It's actually the other way around. The right brain is creative, the left is calculated. Also, I am left brained.
Oops! I typed that wrong!! There I go, being right brained and impulsive! Now I feel stupid!
There, I fixed it! Thanks for pointing out my mistake Jack! That was a very calculated and timely response! LOL

Wow! You may be more impulsive than I am! LOL!
Interesting!

I scored 10/10 - exactly the same for both hemispheres.

Why this is so interesting is that I write with my left hand, play guitar and recorder with my left hand, but do everything else with my right hand. I can paint with both hands.

I believe I was probably ambidextrous as a child, until a teacher tried to force me to use my right hand by hitting me across the head with a Bible. I dug my heels in and then refused to write with my right hand at all.
It is probably the teachers fault that you ended up so evenly balanced! Ha! Ambidexterity is an advantage of course, in event of an injury.

I suppose there would be more left handed people if it were not for society , in the past, trying to force conformity by us southpaws! It was not only practiced by educators. The manufacturing sector definitely tailor makes products for right handers. Look at scissors!
Ambidextrous people should really be called ambisenestrous. Only a tiny percentage are as dextrous with both hands than anyone else usually are with their main hand.
In third grade a teacher tried to force me to be right handed,I told my mother...She went to the school for a little talk.
She left me alone after that.

I play the hammer dulcimer left handed,the mandolin right handed.
I write,work a mouse,etc. left handed. I never reversed the buttons on the mouse though.
I used to try to become ambidextrous by writing some things with my left hand.
