Albert Einstein was surely right brained. Spacial relationships are
right brained so that when you get to higher math, physics etc. you
want to be right brained--actually what you want is a good balance--
you want to connect to your creative right side and come up with
great ideas and then use your left side to analyze and "correct"
and refine. The problem with standard US education is that only left
brained behaviors (come on time, don't wiggle, sit up straight, memorize
these answers, do these math computations) have been rewarded and
the right side gets overshadowed. It needs to be recognized and
rewarded. The truly outstanding individuals in history have been
able to work with their whole brains--it's a huge advantage. Sid
