right brain dominant trading

What is Right Brain Dominance ?
Well, To put it in my own words, it is sort of like being right or left handed except it refers to which side of the brain leads off. And the right-side hemisphere is the intuitive, picture-oriented side, and the left side is very rational, etc. being a right-brain dominant person in a left brain dominant world is to be the odd man out. it has to do with how we process information. and a feeling of always going against the grain of society; since we, here in the 1st world, reward left brain thinking in school, academia, work...
i am coming to realize i am right brain dominant based on some tests. here is a couple of tests i found on gootube.

i see the girl turning clockwise in the video.
The Right Brain vs Left Brain test - Optical Illusion - YouTube
and here she is again turning slower, see if that makes a difference.
Left brain.VS.Right brain - YouTube
and here is a different sort of test for testing hemisphere dominance.
A Quick Left-Right Brain Quick Test - YouTube

There are some more tests that give a better idea as to how much a person favors one hemisphere or the other.
here is a blog with a couple more detailed tests on right left brain dominance.

so what?
well, it might make a difference to how i trade.
And then there is this book on the subject, "I'm not stupid, I'm Right Brained" That describes what it is like.


And then there is this book, "Trading from Your Gut" on distinctions of right and left brain thinking.
not sure if it deals with dominance factor or not. with me, the whole thing is that i am not just trying to tap into the right brain, because i lead off with the right brain, that is the dominant side.. i might say i am seeking balance.


Please feel free to contribute your experiences with right brain dominance and trading,
Thanks

more in rbt.


I came across some more info on right brain trading, written a book called, "how i trade for a living" by Gary Smith on page 59-60. here is a link to the search done in books.google.com; it is a very long link and cant be sure how long the link will be valid.
How I Trade for a Living - Google Books

the author also references a second book he found related to right brain trading called, "the tao jones average" by Bennet Goodspeed.
