Right Brain vs. Left Brain (Infographic)

Though some aspects of brain function do tend to occur mainly in either the left or right side of our brains, the distinction between the two sides has been somewhat exaggerated. Still, the left brain-right brain theory is fun to think about in terms of preferences and how we learn. Which side sounds more like you?

It's problematic when people say/imply that taking emotions into account in a logical argument is somehow irrational or that having/expressing emotions is irrational. Caring about people's feelings is not irrational, if anything, it's a logical way to begin the process of creating a logical ethical system. Afterall, why have ethics if we do not have concern for others? I'm not suggesting using emotions INSTEAD of arguments, but rather using emotions to inform our understanding of the world around us-- using logic in conjuction with emotion. I really dislike when people say "you're being emotional" to mean "you're being irrational." Having emotions does not impede one from being rational. It's problematic when we confuse these two things because then, when people express emotions, they are accused of being irrational-- which just isn't true.
