Are You Right-Brained or Left-Brained?

Right-Brain Logic
The right-brain person is highly creative and has a holistic view of their office space.  They benefit from a work space that keeps paper in the open and visually accessible.  Materials that work well to capture paper in the right-brain office are:
  •  literature sorters for organized action piles
  •  project file boxes
  •  open rolling file carts   
  • colorful file folders   
  • colorful magazine holders
  • different colored pens for labeling


Left-Brain Logic
While the right-brain dominant person works better with everything out in the open, the left-brain dominant person compartmentalizes their office space and does better in a well ordered workspace with everything out of sight except for the one task they are working on. Materials that work well to capture paper in the right-brain office are:
  • divided compartmentalized desk drawer trays
  • desk-top file box (with lid) for action papers
  •  file cabinets with closing drawers
  •  hanging files for reference papers
  •  label maker
