Check Your Brain---Right or Left? (August 08, 2008 - 1:27 a.m.)

I don't usually post twice so close together, but I found this neat brain test, thanks to a friend's blog. Robin is a Christian Fiction writer who used to have a Diaryland site a few years ago. Anyway, she linked to this brain test, which is supposedly able to tell you which side of your brain you use the most, based on your answers to 20 questions. Here is my result.

Your Brain Usage Profile:
Auditory : 47%
Visual : 52%
Left : 58%
Right : 41%

Jeff, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant with a balanced preference for auditory and visual inputs. Because of your "centrist" tendencies, the distinctions between various types of brain usage are somewhat blurred.

Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor, unless it requires total spontaneity and ability to improvise, your weaker traits. However, you are far from rigid or overcontrolled. You possess a degree of individuality, perceptiveness, and trust in your intuition to function at much more sophisticated levels than most.

Having given sufficient attention to detail, you can readily perceive the larger aspects and implications of a situation or of learning. You are functional and practical, but can blend abstraction and theory into your framework readily.

The equivalence of your auditory and visual learning orientation gives you two equally effective sensory input systems, each with distinctive features. You can process both unidimensionally and multidimen- sionally with equal facility. When needed, you sequence material while at other times you "intake it all" and store it for processing later.

Your natural ability to use your senses is also synthesized in your way of learning. You can be reflective in your approach, absorbing material in a non-aggressive manner, and at other times voracious in seeking out stimulation and experience.

Overall you tend to be somewhat more critical of yourself than is necessary and avoid enjoying life too much because of a sense of duty. You feel somewhat constrained and tend to sometimes restrict your expressiveness. In any given situation, you will opt for the rational, and learning of almost any type should be easy for you. You might need certain ideas explained to you in order to fit them into your scheme of things, but you're at least open to that!

I don't know if I agree 100% with that, but it's certainly close. I especially like the part that says that I can "function at more sophisticated levels than most." Hah. Yeah. I'm reeeeaaal sophisticated. Pft.

Anyway, take the test for yourself. See how you come out.

TTFN, y'all!
