Well, according to popular thought, left brained people are more analytical, and right brained people are more intuitive. It was based on some research back in the sixties, and I don't know how valid it is, but it's pretty well fixed in the public mind.

Another note:
Your left hemisphere controls your right side of your body and vice versa. If you're by chance a leftie you're using your right brain and hence activating it over your left brain.
