If you could say the colour in all right without struggling much that means your right brain is more dominant?

Found this for reference:
Left Brain:
Logical
Sequential
Rational
Analytical
Objective
Looks at parts

Right Brain:
Random
Intuitive
Holistic
Synthesizing
Subjective
Looks at wholes

I think there is an experiment that if you could do different moves on your left and right arm/hand simultaneously at the same time, it means one has a good spatial ability? Even though I'm not sure what the practicality in a spatial ability...

Totally agree Bafana, but the first few times are rather frustrating

As the man said - concentrate just a little and it is ok - not one mistake - does that mean my right barin-half is dominant and I look at holes, as kimi says? (What do you mean when you call me and my ilk 'synthesising? My wife will be most upset)

It shouldn't be that simple I suppose to tell which part of the brain is more dominant... plus, we do use both parts most of the time, only the degree is different depending on what we do... but am curious still...

I didn't have to struggle that much and got everything right in one go quite quickly... just had to make my mind blank before starting and concentrated on the colour instead of the words.
But then again I wonder maybe cause I'm not an English native speaker, so my reflect to read the words is less..?

I don't think you can generalise between the two side of the brain for this problem. The problem is broken down into a few parts which are handles by different areas of the brain which are interconnected.

Whether you are a native speaker or not is against the point. To properly demonstrate the effect, you should not have to the words in any other way than normal.

I don't know the exact tests that you refer to but in psychometric testing, "spatial" often has a rather specific meaning.

It doesn't really mean anything to do with "space" or the ability to think about things in 3D but refers to the ability to think about situations in their totality, rather than the details - to see the big picture, as it were.

Again, I could be wrong, but if that is connected to the experiment you mention, it definitely is a useful ability.
