There are some different ways of cerebral activity in the right and left sides of the brain. The former is more intuitively and sentimentally, on the other hand, the latter is more logical and reasonable. Even if one side is stronger than the other side, both sides can work regularly. (Summary_a10)

Our brain thinks in different process. We use the right brain in visual and intuitive and sensual. However, we use the left side in logical and verbal. So, it is different from a left-brained person to a right-brained person. But, we do not use one side only. So we always use both sides. (Summary_a09)
