Your left and right brain, viewed in awesomeness

I have been having major writer’s block lately, like I don’t know what the fuck to write about. Nothing seems to be inspiring in words.

So here’s another series of pictures which I think are pretty awesome.

It’s your brain, in coolness. 

For the stupid, here’s a lowdown on how your left and right brain works. You are either right-brain dominant or left-brain dominant.

Right-brain dominant: People in this group depend more on visual references for learning and understanding. They are more emotional and act on their feelings more. Right-brain dominant people tend to be very curious about the world.

Left-brain dominant: This side processes logic for you. Left-brainers are very organized people. They prefer order, deadlines, schedules to keep and of course, rules and regulations.

I guess… it can just boil down to this again:

Do you want to live by rules, be organized (in the eyes of others), follow the order of life for some form of safety?

Or would you rather follow your heart, emotions, feelings, act on them and do whatever you think you are capable of?

Photos’ descriptions are interpreted by me.

I feel this is a very stark contrast, but it makes you think nonetheless

Which brain is Alden Tan in? I think I am in the middle. Cause I be real.

Be the right brain, be the right person

Now as you can obviously see, the right brain is all colourful and shit.

Isn’t that cool?

Do you not want to live in a place like that? To be yourself, to be able to express yourself fully and do whatever you want?

For starts, you can easily access your right brain by not giving a crap about what others think about you.

    Are those images painted by you? I would like to use them in a blog post, but I want to ask the artist permission to use them. I googled “right and left brain images” and your website is the one that credits where the illustrations/images originate. Please email me at and let me know. Thank you for your time.

      Nah they were not created by me. I merely googled them!
