What’s it about?

There are a lot more right handed people than left handed people in the world. Only about 5% of all people are left handed. Right or left-handedness is not something we have any control over – we are born this way.

Not many people are aware that similar to right or left-handedness, one of our eyes is also dominant or stronger than the other. With the following simple science experiment you can determine which one of your eyes is the stronger or more dominant:

Topics covered

How does it work?

Unfortunately, this section is only available in the e-book version of the project.

Similar to being right or left-handed, this experiment is also an indication as to which side of your brain is the dominant side. One can say that the dominant eye takes the lead when looking at something whilst the other eye just follows. As with being right or left-handed it is the opposite side of the brain that controls the dominant eye. The left side of the brain controls the right side of the body and vice versa.
