In an earlier post about two new movies featuring introverted eggheads who emerge from transformative experiences more passionate and socially engaged, I asked whether all epiphanies are right-brained. How often, for example, does an outgoing musician learn that what makes him truly happy is retreating to his study to analyze business cycles and market equilibria?
I've been a life-long dreamer who draws and sings and is (or so I thought) as right-brained as the day is long.
Then I started really looking at math while homeschooling my kids and engaging in demanding debates and suddenly I've had a blossoming of rational thought and a found a lot of joy in numbers. It has been wonderful.
I don't know what kind of thinker I am now though I suspect I hover in the middle.
On the emotional quotient I was 52, slightly higher than the average for women.
