Theres a theory that right brain = judgement dominants and left brain = perception dominants. It's just speculation, but I'm curious how possibly accurate that could be. Do you guys know which one you are ?
Do you perhaps mean to refer to Dario Nardi's study on neuroscience? In that case I don't think you're entirely mistaken; for example the Fp1, T3, T5 and P3 regions in the left hemisphere of the brain have been observed to be used more frequently by Je-leads relative to the other types. Have you seen this or this? It's a reasonable speculation because Ctypes deal with neuroscience, therefore logically there should be correlations. However I don't think being J/P-lead necessarily means you will have a certain hemisphere dominance, that per se doesn't mean that J/P-leads can't have a natural inclination towards one hemisphere.
I place my right thumb over my left, indicating left brain dominance.
However, I see the spinning lady turning clockwise, indicating right brain dominance.
Not sure I put much weight into the whole thing, altogether, anyway.
I wouldn't buy either of those; the spinning lady image is not objectively spinning in one direction or the other, it's simply a 2-D image that is shifting back n' forth. However because our brains did not evolve to interpret these kinds of imagery (we instead seek to perceive 3-D imagery) our visual processing assumes that we are looking at 3-D, hence the spinning, and depending on the cues we pick up, the direction. We have two hemispheres that can operate fine independently and there is indeed hemisphere dominance, but both parts are massively interconnected and work most of the time in conjunction.
Something like brain-dominance could easily be affected by e.g. which hand you use and whether your language center is in the right/left hemisphere of the brain. The best way to determine if there are correlations between cognitive types and hemisphere dominance would be through EEG. For now you should probably not take these tests seriously and forgive me for the confusion.

well the test gave me right brain over left but i don't trust online tests i see clock wise in the image and my psych prof actually had us do that hand test in class and i was left thumb over right. she didn't really say what the test was for at the time though.
I was typed NeFi. I put my left thumb on top and test right brained on the spinning girl test. It was tricky but I did get her to switch directions once. But... I grew up with 2 left handed parents (the thumb thing could be learned with all the church going I did when young. haha) and I am right-handed/ left eye dominant (cross-dominance). I usually score balanced or slightly right-brained on the multiple choice tests (I didn't take the test that was linked).
I remember Lenore Thomson touched on MBTI Brain types. Ne,Se,Ti,Fi were right brained functions. Te,Fe,Si,Ni were left brained functions.
I also had different results between the spinning girl and the hands. I saw the girl spinning counter-clockwise, although I could change her direction fairly easily once I got the trick to it (scroll down until you can only see her feet, than you should be able to change the direction with ease), but I put my left thumb on top of my right. I think I'm left-brained, from the descriptions, but am unsure.
What if you are ambidextrous? The girl spins one way; then without warning she starts spinning the other way. As for my hands, it just depends on which pinky finger goes up first. I've always been ambidextrous and I use both sides of my brain pretty equally, maybe slightly one way more than the other, depending on the circumstances. I just wonder if ambidexterity also comes into play.
