The case that some people have more methodical, logical cognitive styles, and others more uninhibited, spontaneous styles has nothing common with the different functions of the brain's left and right hemisphere.

BBC: "Jeffrey Anderson (a brain researcher at the University of Utah) led a team that looked at the brains of more than a thousand people and measured strong connections on both sides of the brain. They found that these connections were distributed fairly evenly - in other words, it wasn't the case that some people had stronger connections on one side of the brain or the other".
