Are You Right-Brained or Left-Brained? Take the Test
If you think this is bunk I wanna hear about it in the comments. If you took the test I wanna hear about in the comments. Did it match what you expected? What had you already deduced from previous reports on this psychological measurement? I find it all very interesting and putting people into categories doesn't bother me. I love psychology and I'm glad for the continued campaign to interest others with websites like this.
From everything I've already read about this I assumed I was completely right-brained. I'm creative, not good at math, etc. But that info provided to me is decades old. So I was intrigued to see an online assessment that I'm more left-brained than right-brained. Apparently the researchers took specific results from large populations and distilled them down to produce the top questions and a few common choices that could match anyone's answers with the results of their study. With all the flaws of any carefully controlled study splayed wide open with a simple questionnaire like this, I was amused.
I hope you are, too. Be sure to click the HOW COME button to understand more about your results. I love speculating about why we humans do the things we do.
And final words offered from Meteor Blades on this: If your percentage results don't add up to 100%, seek medical help immediately. Yikes.
