    Right brain, left brain artist

    I fond this quiz interesting. Why? I don't know...it's always fun to find out something about yourself. This quiz told me that my left brain was slightly dominate.

    this quiz said that my right brain is strongly dominant (80%)

    this should be good in painting... but not in the real life :roll:

    The whole left brain = artistic and right brain = logic (or is it the other way around?) myth has been thoroughly and convincingly debunked in neurological circles over the past few years due to new research. But the test was fun anyways in the same way my wife always wants to read me my horoscope. 50/50.

    aha! I didn't know that Davey. The whole right brain, left brain thing made me always fear I wouldn't be in my right mind. :roll:

    Your score is 80%. Your right brain is strongly dominant

    Right Brain Inventory
    Visual, focusing on images, patterns
    Intuitive, led by feelings
    Process ideas simultaneously
    'Mind photos' used to remember things, writing things down or illustrating them helps you remember
    Make lateral connections from information
    See the whole first, then the details
    Organisation ends to be lacking
    Free association
    Like to know why you're doing something or why rules exist (reasons)
    No sense of time
    May have trouble with spelling and finding words to express yourself
    Enjoy touching and feeling actual objects (sensory input)
    Trouble prioritising, so often late, impulsive
    Unlikely to read instruction manual before trying
    Listen to how something is being said
    Talk with your hands
    Likely to think you're naturally creative, but need to apply yourself to develop your potential

    Left Brain Inventory
    Verbal, focusing on words, symbols, numbers
    Analytical, led by logic
    Process ideas sequentially, step by step
    Words used to remember things, remember names rather than faces
    Make logical deductions from information
    Work up to the whole step by step, focusing on details, information organised
    Highly organised
    Like making lists and planning
    Likely to follow rules without questioning them
    Good at keeping track of time
    Spelling and mathematical formula easily memorised
    Enjoy observing
    Plan ahead
    Likely read an instruction manual before trying
    Listen to what is being said
    Rarely use gestures when talking
    Likely to believe you're not creative, need to be willing to try and take risks to develop your potential

    Science may debunk it, but its still fun!

    from the wikipedia
    The human brain is separated by a longitudinal fissure, separating the brain into two distinct cerebral hemispheres. The two sides of the brain are similar in appearance, and every structure in each hemisphere is mirrored on the other side, yet despite these gross similarities, the functions of each cortical hemisphere are different. Human neocortex--the outer, visible portions of the brain--is the source of all cognitive, sensory, linguistic, voluntary movement, and attentive processes. These higher-level functions--as opposed to reflexes, posture maintenance, etc.--seem to preferentially exist in one half of the brain or the other. Deeper (subcortical) structures such as the basal ganglia and thalami seem to play the same role on each side of the brain, regardless of their hemisphere.

    It is important to note that--while functions are indeed lateralized--these lateralizations are trends and do not apply to every person in every case. Short of having undergone a hemispherectomy (the removal of an entire cerebral hemisphere) there are no "left-brained" or "right-brained" people.
    I had to read up on it.
