More Famous Right Brainers

In her essay "Learning Styles of the Left and Right Hemispheres"  Michelle Morris provides a list of others who were likely right brained. 

Note:  to those new to the concept of "right-brained," this can be interpreted to mean that these people did not lack a left brain. Rather, It means that the right hemispheres of their brains were dominant.  In other words, they were and are big concept thinkers, innovators and non-linear thinkers. 

The list includes:
