This study was undertaken to determine if there was significant difference in the intelligence quotients of right and left hemispheric dominant children. Fifth and sixth grade students were used as the sample. The Zenhausern Hemispheric Cognitive Style and the Otis-Lennon Mental Ability Test were administered to all students in the study. The man of the I.Q.'s of the right brained students and the left brained students were each figured separately. The t-test was used to compare the scores. The result was a T-Value of 0.1964 which shows no significant difference in the I.Q.'s of right and left brained children. When looking only at extremely high I.Q. scores, there were more left dominant children in both categories of 120 and above and 130 and above.
