In Which We Learn A Bit More About The Beans

~ ~ • ~ ~

I took the Right Brain vs Left Brain Creativity Test.  It was straightforward.  No right or wrong answers.  A fun kind of test.

~ ~ • ~ ~

It said that I am 52% Right Brain and 48% Left Brain.  My most dominant Right Brain characteristics are Fantasy-oriented & Intuitive.  My most dominant Left Brain characteristics are Verbal & Linear.

Does this mean that I’m well-balanced?  Or does this mean that I’m equally mediocre on each side of my brain– not being able to excel in one direction or the other?

Being more Right Brain than Left Brain means that I am a creative thinker who visualizes the “whole” picture first, uses what appears to be illogical and meandering thought processes, yet finds an innovative solution to the problems at hand.

Yep, that’s me.

Zen-Den took the test.  He is 56% Left Brain and 44% Right Brain.  His most dominant Left Brain characteristic is Verbal– just like me.  His second most dominant Right Brain characteristic is Fantasy-oriented– just like me.

 I’m guessing that it is the overlap of the same strong dominant characteristics that makes us so compatible.  ‘Cause on the surface we are very different.

He is described as a critical thinker who uses logic to collect information, sees only parts of the “whole” picture, which he puts together in a step-by-step systematic manner to arrive at the conclusion.

Yep, that’s the hubster.

The results of this test were surprisingly accurate.  It confirmed what we knew about ourselves and helped us understand what we didn’t realize about ourselves.  Very interesting.

If you get a chance to take the test (allow 10 minutes), let me know what you think about your results.  Do they describe you, or not?

  1. I just took the test and got a 51% right brain and a 49% left brain analysis. It was right on when stated that in giving directions I would use a lot of hand gestures and talk about a McDonald’s on the corner or a big tree by the stop sign, etc. I never use N, S, E, or W. It was very interesting!

  2. Beth, I’m glad that you took the test. The results were very accurate, don’t you think? I usually don’t pay much attention to online tests, but this one was different.

    [I give directions the same way as you do, btw.]

  3. Left Brain 55% Right Brain 45%

    On the left side – 67% Symbolic but only 7% verbal. That low verbal may explain why, if I’m in a group of people, I won’t say much. On the other hand, you’ll rarely find me in group of people.

    On the right side – 39% random but only 6% holistic. After reading the explanations I still have no idea what these scores mean.

  4. Mike, you made me laugh.

    So, putting aside the issue of whether or not the explanations make any sense, you are, according to this test, dominated by left brain thinking. Good with symbols, lousy with holistic thinking.

    This is about about the opposite of me: tolerant of algebraic abstractions, at home with big picture idealism. Or at least I think that is what this test is telling me I am!
