Most 'right-brained' or 'left-brained' characters

As part of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz, this website has had volunteers rate 2,000 characters on a 100 point scale from "'right-brained'" to "'left-brained'". This page lists the 25 characters whose average ratings were the farthest to either side. Because the scale is bipolar, it is reversable. For example, a rating of 1/100 for "'right-brained'" is the same as 100/100 for "'left-brained'". See the documentation for more information about how these ratings were collected.
