Take the Test

06 Jul

Disclaimer: This is not a scientific, double blind clinical study. This is for FUN.

We’ve all read about right brain/left brain. Most people have some tendencies of both. There are a gazillion free quick tests online to see how you score.  I took four different tests (although many questions were duplicates) and came out with the same answer with slightly different percentages.

I chose a test from the Art Institute of Vancouver. There are 54 questions and they are purposely vague. Relax and select the BEST answer.

Take the test and report your results.

I’ll report first. I was a bit surprised to find out that I was 54% left brain and 46% right brain. Fairly well balanced according to the Art Institute of Vancouver! Some details below:

Your left brain/right brain percentage was calculated by combining the individual scores of each half’s sub-categories. They are as follows:

Your Left Brain Percentages

  34% Verbal (Your most dominant characteristic)
  27% Sequential
  25% Logical
  22% Linear
  17% Symbolic
  7% Reality-based (Your least dominant characteristic)

Your Right Brain Percentages

  45% Random (Your most dominant characteristic)
  24% Fantasy-oriented
  20% Intuitive
  13% Nonverbal
  6% Holistic
  0% Concrete (Your least dominant characteristic)

Wow, a zero for concrete. I’d better find out what that means!

Have fun and remember to report back to the blog.

    56/44 and here’s my breakdown…

    Your Left Brain Percentages
    47% Reality-based (Your most dominant characteristic)
    34% Symbolic
    27% Linear
    27% Sequential
    27% Verbal
    25% Logical (Your least dominant characteristic)

    Your Right Brain Percentages
    34% Random (Your most dominant characteristic)
    29% Fantasy-oriented
    28% Concrete
    25% Nonverbal
    20% Intuitive
    12% Holistic (Your least dominant characteristic)

    I’m going to go out on a limb and bet that a lot of us will score high in the “fantasy-oriented” processing… :)

    I don’t know quite what to make of ‘reality’ being my least dominant characteristic. LOL This is fun, Janis!! Thank you

      That makes you a “whole brainer,” Liz. Just like me :)

    Coming from a 54/46, it’s interesting how close my numbers are to yours overall, but different in the breakdown. Yep, pretty fun.

    Janis, took this during an edting course with Margie Lawson. Loved finding out that my left-handed self is a “whole brainer.” Maybe that’s the part of being a switch hitter …you know left/right on everything I do :)

    My dominant left brain was “verbal” the least, “reality based.” My dominant right brain is “fantasy-oriented” and the least “concrete.”

    Love these tests !!

    Hey Florence, my reality based and concrete were least, too. A pattern emerges?

    I’m 54%/46% and you’re just switched. I’m 0% concrete and that’s your most dominant. :-)
    What surprises me is that most of us are very close to evenly balanced.
