I agree fully with Kathryn. While the neuroscience may prove there is no such thing as right brain/left brain I can assure you that the states of mind that this "myth" suggests are subjectively true for many of us. For instance, analyzing a piece of music (for transcription) and listening to the same piece for pure enjoyment are VASTLY different experiences. Most creative types will tell you that if they spend time in analytical mode they need a break before they can enter creative mode. Another way that can be expressed is that if someone is involved in a creative process and they need to do something analytical it ruins the creative flow. These states of mind are subjectively VERY real.
