I am curious to see if we can come up with any patterns for Federer/Nadal fanbases, since they are polar opposites. Please select the options that apply to you. If none apply, don't vote! This is purely for survey purposes :wavey:

The Right Brain

According to the left-brain, right-brain dominance theory, the right side of the brain is best at expressive and creative tasks. Some of the abilities that are popularly associated with the right side of the brain include:

- Recognizing faces
- Expressing emotions
- Music
- Reading emotions
- Color
- Images
- Intuition
- Creativity


The Left Brain

The left-side of the brain is considered to be adept at tasks that involve logic, language and analytical thinking. The left-brain is often described as being better at:

- Language
- Logic
- Critical thinking
- Numbers
- Reasoning

Interesting but I don't think it would establish any causation.
Maybe (probably) not but I'm just curious. Particularly for the left/right brain options.

Interesting what variables may be correlated. As someone before stated though, I don't know how you could find causality.

What's your theory on it though? Do you think that people who are more right-brained would pick Fed since he's artsy.
I'm not sure. One one hand, you would think that right-brained people would prefer Federer because, like you said, he is more "artistic" whereas Nadal's game is based around logically playing the percentages.

On the other hand, rational/logical thinking is left-brained, so I wouldn't expect that from Nadal fans. ;)

Could be an interesting thread so long as there's no flaming.
