I ask because, every time I talk on the phone I use my left ear, which is connected to the right, intuitive side of my brain -- not because there's anything wrong with the hearing in my left ear but because...well, I just never use that ear. As I learn more about the brain, I wonder if my preference is just habit or if maybe there's something about being able to understand a person in a different way based on which ear your listen with? For a likely related example, the psychologist Allan Schore suggests looking at a patient's left eye, which is connected to the emotional, right side of the brain, to better understand a client's feelings.
Are you a right ear, a left ear or are you like my husband and switch, depending on exactly how much you want to hear or process? I'm sorry to blog with little more than a question, but here it is: might it be possible that we switch our phone ear based on whether we need to process logical or intuitive information?
