The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between fixation and brain preference. Based on the hemisphere asymmetric theory and fixation, two hypotheses were articulated. They were: 1) Right-brain preference is negatively related to divergent fixation. 2) Left-brain preference is negatively related to convergent fixation. A self-reporting scale for measuring the brain preference with 42 items were developed for the study based on functional characteritics of left and right hemisphere. Samples were collected from 579 college students in K University. Regression analysis showed that right-brain preference was negatively associated with divergent fixation. In the relationship between left-brain preference and convergent fixation, mixed results were produced. Research implication were discussed at the end of the study.
