A refined neurobehavioral inventory of hemispheric preference

Author(s): Wells, K. A.

Journal/Book: J Clin Psychol. 1985; 41: 671-6.

Abstract: With the advent and rapid growth of neuropsychology has come the need for reliable and valid measures of neuropsychological behaviors. The inventory described in this article measures neurobehavioral preference based on theoretical assumptions and previous research findings in the field, such as brain localization and cerebral hemispheric dominance. The inventory consists of 12 items, each of which has 4 statements that relate to four different functions of the two hemispheres, namely: (a) Left, logical; (b) Left, verbal; (c) Right, manipulative/spatial; and (d) Right, creative. A separate measure for left and right preference can be obtained by adding (a) and (b) and (c) and (d), respectively. Administration and scoring take only a few minutes. Statistical analysis shows that the results were in the predicted direction when six different criterion groups were used (e.g., artists, nurses, and teachers). The instrument appears suitable for use in personality research, counseling activities, or management techniques.
