Dominance Failure

A true and real smile will have both the ends upward if happy else viseversa.

One quick-and-dirty method to identify hemispheric specialization without a Wada test is to ask which face below is happier. If the individual chooses the left face (frown in LVF, smile in RVF), emotional processing is presumed to be located in the left hemisphere, and thus language in the RH. The more common response is to choose the right face, with a smile in the LVF. Good luck. Identifying functional asymmetries is a messy business.
