Are you left-brained or right-brained?

April 3, 2008

Scott just showed me this test to see if you're left or right brained.

It's pretty amazing.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic, detail oriented, facts rule, words and language, present and past, math and science, can comprehend, knowing, acknowledges, order/pattern perception, knows object name, reality based, forms strategies, practical, safe

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling, "big picture" oriented, imagination rules, symbols and images, present and future, philosophy & religion, can "get it" (i.e. meaning), believes, appreciates, spatial perception, knows object function, fantasy based, presents possibilities, impetuous, risk taking

If the dancer is rotating clockwise, you're more right-brained. If counterclockwise, you're more left brained.

I found often that if I looked away and then looked back, the dancer would be rotating in the opposite direction. I could never predict which way it was going to turn. How crazy!

What is the dancer doing for you?

Even though I know I'm more

Even though I know I'm more "left brain", it was quite the task for me to see the dancer moving counter clockwise - I only got it for a second.

Nice :) I am definitely more

Nice :)

I am definitely more left brained, so much so that I looked at the dancer and analyzed the way I could make it flip in my mind :)

Now I can look at it and flip it in my mind at will!

Yes... I can flip it as

Yes... I can flip it as well. It takes some effort, being that I am super right-brained, but I can actually make it flip. If I look just off to the side and watch it out of my peripheral vision, I can actually make it go back and forth from one side to the other without actually completing a full spin. I must say that I impressed my self! HaHa!

Right Brained All the Way

Can't for the life of me get my brain to switch to counter clock wise mode.
Clock wise all the way for me... I can usually switch back and forth on other RB/LB tests if I try hard enough, for this one I can't.

Nice. I have not seen too

Nice. I have not seen too many others, but this one seems to be one of the best ones I've seen so far!

joke?

For real. I read the mini article and watched and watched. Even though the article said the left-brained people saw it going a different direction, I concluded that it must be a joke: OBVIOUSLY, it only goes clockwise! Then I came back and read the comments. Hmmm... so, when I tested severly ADD in college and my family friend that is a counselor laughed out loud and told me the test was wrong, that I was just the most right-brained person he's ever seen - he was right???? Crazy. Thank you for passing this along. :)
