It depends on how you as an iduvidual value things. This is like asking whether a cat or a dog is better, some people will say a cat while others will say a dog.

Right cerebral hemisphere controls?

The right cerebral hemisphere controls the left side of the body. This is the creative side of the brain.


The left cerebral hemisphere is usually dominant?

The left hemisphere is more logical and solves problems that require complex symbol manipulation. The right hemisphere evaluates sensory information quickly and makes "aesthetic" judgments.Since we usually direct our behaviour by making reasoned decisions, in those cases the left hemisphere is the controlling side, but experiments have demonstrated that split-second reactions are managed by the right-brain, which can respond better to what we perceive than to what we think.


What is cerebral dominance?

The brain hemisphere is located on the left side of the corpus collasum. This is responsible for regulating the activities on the right part of the body. Brain hemisphere is also responsible for speech and language functions.


Is it normal for a left brained person in college to be terrible at writing?

If by "left brained" you mean, has a dominant left cerebral hemisphere, most people have dominant left cerebral hemispheres, which is why most people are right handed (note that the left cerebral hemisphere controls the right side of the body; the nerves cross to the opposite side). In a sense, I can agree with your statement, because most people actually are terrible at writing. But it isn't their left cerebral hemispheres which are to blame. It's just that most people don't care enough about writing to learn how to do it well.

Why do you say that the right hemisphere is the subordinate or minor hemisphere?

It's not always the right hemisphare, the subordinate/minor hemisphere is the NOT dominant hemisphare. In more than 90% of population the left hemisphare is the dominant which makes the right the subordinate hemisphares. But in some (not all) left handed the right is the dominant hemisphere and the left is the subordinate hemisphare.
