    So I noticed something when reading screenshot threads compared to my own screen. There seems to be a predominance of items (shortcuts/widgets) stored on each directional "side" that correlate with the sides of the brain.

    Left brain is our organizational and orderly side, and right brain is the creative side, controlling our more artistic impulses.

    My 3 screens definitely fell into that mode almost exactly:
    Left screen has the power widget(!), car home, map navi shortcut to home, Cal Widget, and Astrid.

    Center has essentials only (still rather left-brainy, like I tend to be) like phone and battery.

    Right screen has a folder of games, the music widget, Aldiko, Facebook, and the picture frame widget with an arty picture in it.

    In the interest of SCIENCE (and entertainment), how does your screen setup compare? And does your center screen reveal your stronger brain-side tendencies (or just your social life)?

    Hmm I agree it could be something to do with it like how the brain catagorizes it the way you want. I never noticed all my games are one the one side and etc like you said. Good observation :)

    I guess my organization is similar to the Left/Right brain theory. I have most commonly used items on the main screen and then I have related apps grouped on the Left and Right Screens. I use [Folders] on the far left on the left screen and far right on the right screen to show the theme for that row.

    For example, [Music] would contain multiple programs within it, but next to it on the right screen I would have my most commonly used Music programs.

    Left
    1. [Tools], Battery Info, Location Settings, Kill Aps

    3. [News], AP, USA Today, News Rob
    4. [Shop], Amazon, Craigs, App Market

    Center
    1. GTasks Widget, Weatherbug widet
    2. Gtasks (cont.), Calendar, Brightness widget,
    3. vrecorder,___, ___, Browser
    4. Phone, Email, Contacts, Handcent

    Right
    1. Soduko, SNES, NES, [Games]
    2. Pandora, Imusic, Listen, [Music]
    3. Places, Yelp, Where, [Local]
    4. Car Home, Maps, [Misc]

    Thoughts?

    im mostly left brained.
    left side is power control and pure grid calendar
    middle is essentia apps and weather widgets-donate
    right is music widget, 4 folders with all my apps, then gallery and youtube apps, and brightness control widget
    so kind of follows my brain, but not completely, it would, but i couldnt fit some stuff on my left side

    One KEY point you didn't mention. Your 'left' brain controls your right side and vice versa.
    So to follow suit with this theory, your organizational tools would need to be to the right of your main screen and your entertainment would be to your left. You've got it backwards.

    Left Brain : Right Brain

    I totally fit this theory. Middle screen has essentials like phone and email. Left screen has work contacts, calendar widget, power widget, battery monitor, and a folder with networking stuff like wifi monitor, connectbot, nettools. Right screen has games and music, open table, fandango, Goggles, etc.

    The theory in the OP is backwards. Your left controls right and vice versa. So for this theory to work, your organization needs to be to the right of your home screen, and entertainment to the left.

    Far right is youtube, pandora, music, and power widget. Right center is 3x3 s2 cal widget and google search widget across the top. Center is Beautiful Home, 4x1 android agenda widget, then my most used apps(messaging, contacts, B of A, and market). Left Center is Google news/weather widget and my 5th through 16th most used apps since my top 4 are on the center screen. And the far left is the 4x4 agenda widget for when I want to see more than just 4 of my upcoming events. Not really sure where this puts me but I marked no correlation between screens but my center is decidedly left brained like me.
