Follow the link and read it. Then come back.

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/brain-myths/201206/why-the-left-brain-right-brain-myth-will-probably-never-die

There are differences. Just not what the original studies proposed and not what the common wisdom believes. It's not as well defined, or strictly divided, and there are many shared areas of creativity and logic, between the sides. Not like I just made this up out of thin air.  :-*

The truth is out there.

My brother in law, a medical student, is studying brain anatomy where they are taught differences between left and right hemispheres of the cerebrum section of the brain, and their different functions, such as logic vs creativity.

But he, his lectures and all the researchers must be wrong, because Uncle Pete, says its hogwash !! 😉 lol

There ARE proven differences between the left and right hemispheres, example : speech centers.

Yes, nobody said there aren't. Brains are not symmetrical.
I'm specifically talking about creativity vs logic.

Creativity vs logic? Not proven, but not otherwise proven either. This would be a hard one, how do you even define parameters for creativity and logic? it's not impossible, though, maybe one day we will know, for now, the answer is "we dont know", that does not mean the myth is wrong, maybe or maybe not.
The brain is still a big black box, we barely know about it, and there are things that are proven right today will be proven wrong tomorrow.
Open -minded is the key. Seeing is believing, not the other way around.

Yeah, anyway, I'd veer away from any med school that would try to sell this creativity vs. logic
And for people making strong claims, is it really so hard to do a google search (first result): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateralization_of_brain_function

Quote
Broad generalizations are often made in "pop" psychology about one side or the other having characteristic labels, such as "logical" for the left side or "creative" for the right. These labels are not supported by studies on lateralization, as lateralization does not add specialized usage from either hemisphere.[2] Both hemispheres contribute to both kinds of processes,[3] and experimental evidence provides little support for correlating the structural differences between the sides with such broadly-defined functional differences.[4]

So yeah, downvote my original answer as much as you like, but the science has the truth, although you may not like it. To each their own. :)

What I hate most, being a neuro-PhD student, is when people who have skimmed through two articles and maybe heard something on the radio 10 years ago start teaching me what they KNOW. It's funny, and usually they back off when I say what my background is, but when they don't, it's just irritating to talk with these know-it-alls. Like I've spent my entire education looking at a blank wall.

If this addresses to me, feel free to go to my website (in my signature) to see my background. I just didn't like to show off my title in a forum.

LOL you guys are so funny with your egos and need to be right :)) Next we will have a rocket scientist come on to debunk all the myths !! lol

I abbreviated my original post. It should have read: Not all functions of the hemispheres are shared. The cerebrum performs functions such as speech, comprehension, arithmetic, reasoning, spatial ability, emotions, learning and artistic. Each hemisphere controls the opposite side of the body. (My bad)

huh say what??? ...medical reference, nuero-science, psychology,...
never thought i stumble into a microstock forum to find so many medical practitioners
actually contributing photographs to microstock  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
you would think they would be spending more time in the reference library of their university studying .
sorry i have to laugh at this.

Both left and right centers of my brain have been seriously compromised over a long period by scotch - so I have no idea what you're all babbling on about.

Latest theory over at good old SS is that buyers of any import actually bother to go and see if your wonderful work of art is cheaper somewhere else. Like the fools who burn petrol driving around to find an outlet with the lowest price per gallon. I'm sure someone can dig up some examples but really, this is fiddling around trying to source the reason for your declining sales when (in a many cases - not all I must add) the answer is much closer to home.

So Do I!

And I spent weeks, no make that months in the stacks, in the library, doing research for my Masters in Psychology, but as usual, the Internet has ruined it all. Because (ready?) Everything you read on the Internet is TRUE!

Did you find the Stormy Monday lyrics? I was thinking of you when I added them to one of the "sales are terrible" threads. Music is the great and universal human communicator. (right after the Internet of course...) You can hear it when nothing is making any sound, it's in your brain.

Neuroscientists and psychologists are not medical practitioners.

And what I do in my free time is only my business. EOD.

Well I used to be a yellow Microstock Dummy and SS turned me into a Gnome in some stupid enchanted forest. That's much worse than capping, zone blocking or altering the search. I mean my shoes still fit, but my hats are kind of funny looking, shirt and pants, forget it!

I think the reason I don't see a sales limit is, I never reach it. Yeah that's the ticket. Little people just don't make it to the DL limit.

I'll leave it here so when I change back, the joke isn't lost:

i think there WAS some flipping of switches and inconsistency in curator-ship as well as other "disorganizaton" in those months where the forum was wreaked with contributors being unhappy with the goings-on. but from the past 2 months, that seems to be ironed-out.
the only drop of sales marked was for the christmas season till today, which is expected, as in many countries, most offices are either closed or the employees are all having their christmas hols.
this is my point of view, as i saw a large positive change in the last half of nov to mid dec,
which i take it is from the business spending what they have in budget for this year. which gave me a very good close for this year with earnings exceeding expectation.
i also saw images selling which were sleeping, along with the regular sellers . all to me shows that maybe ss did do some heads riolling, and getting their ship back to shape.

this much, i tip my hat to mr oringer and his ppl.

There is no limit.

You have to understand how people and corporations work. If you live in the West Coast, 2pm is 5pm (they're off) in the East Coast and night-time in Europe (they're sleeping). Very few people start new projects after 2pm in the after, it's usually the morning-early afternoon when people are productive. They go in, they have their deadlines and they try to get their work done early so they can relax during the afternoon.

I've seen this pattern everywhere.

The Americas (US & Brazil), Europe and East Asia (India) are the biggest markets.

I barely get any sales from China or the surrounding countries because they love to use their own services instead of a company based in the US. When it's 2pm in the West Coast, it's 10pm in Europe. The best sales periods based on experience has been from 1am PST (9am GMT) to 2pm PST.

The US makes up 12.5% of the Shutterstock's traffic. India - 12.1%, Brazil - 5.5%, Russia 4%, UK 3.5%. Consider those markets and you'll see why it falls off after 2pm PST.
