    left-brained

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from The Soulmate Secret by Arielle Ford:

    "Some people find the act of writing a list of their soulmate's characteristics a bit too formal or left-brained. If you are more the creative type who thinks in a nonlinear way, you may find coloring, drawing, or doodling your soulmate's attributes an easier way to tap into your heart's desires."

    What does "left-brained" mean in this context?

    The creative person often uses different means of communicating to someone who likes a more logical, factually based approach. These 'formal' processes are thought to occur in the left hemisphere (left side of the brain) and so the adjective 'left-brained' developed, to describe this kind of thinking and communicating.
    Here's one link:
    Right Brain vs. Left Brain
