Are you right or left brain?

So what is the career that your brain wants? If you are naturally creative and intuitive, you might be right-brained. If you lean more analytical or Logical, you are probably more left brained.
Left Brain Careers
Logical + AnalyticalLeft-brainers are logical and analytical. They thrive in structured environments. They smoothly articulate what they wish to communicate to others. They may even enjoy a ‘good argument’. They perform well under stress, as in job interviews, laying out the answers to the questions, in a sequential and orderly way.

Typical examples of left brained careers include: lawyers, accountants, scientists, engineers, programmers, help desk professionals, network administration professionals and bankers.


Right Brain Careers
Creative + Visual

For right-brained people, following a regimented, rigidly prescribed office routine is deadly. It goes too much against their creative free spirit. They like to imagine new possibilities, and enjoy looking at the many different angles of a problem. Inevitably, they want to try new and different ways of doing things.

Typical examples of right brained careers include: entrepreneurs, athletes, sales, artists, musicians, digital marketing and advertising creatives.
