    You responded as a right brained person to 7 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 11questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your left brain the most. The summary briefly describes your dominance type.

    I'm not sure about some of the questions though.

    Q2: I prefer mutliple choice questions because there's an inherent x% chance of getting the correct answer, no other reason(except laziness).
    Q6: The two go hand in hand. It's called learning.
    Q11: Drawing, but because it's mch easier not because I'm better at it.
    Q14: It's cluttered with neatly organised things that I might need.
    Q18: Can you arrive at an answer without knowing what you're doing?

    Then again, my own reasons for the answers I gave are still probably caused by dominance of one side of my brain over the other, but I doubt those are factored into the results. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, but several of the 'results' were the exact opposite of what I responded.

    Did you change any answers? It warns that can mess the test up.

    You responded as a right brained person to 2 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 16questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your left brain the most. The summary briefly describes your dominance type. Remember, this only represents half of the picture. After you read the description, click on the link at the bottom of the page to find out how to use this information to improve your study strategies. Do not forget to print your results, if your instructor has requested you to do so.

    Some of the traits associated with the left side of the brain are listed in the table. Not all of the traits will apply to you. Remember, we use both side of our brain, but your left sides gets the most exercise.

    Wow, you should have a very high understanding of everyone's viewpoints. Do you?

    And I thought I was a heavy left brain thinker.

    Wow! I knew I was right-brained a long time ago. I just didn't realize how strongly right brained I am. :biggrin1: I am also a visual-spatial learner which tends to go hand-in-hand with being right brain dominant.

    Too bad the American public school system is designed for left brained, auditory-sequential learners.





    You responded as a right brained person to 14 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 4 questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most.

    I'd say that was a fairly accurate summary. Explains why I have had reasonable success in the visual arts. :smile:

    Keeping the business side of it organized? :confused:

    Uhhh...:redface:

    That's not particularly helpful.

    It reminds me when I took an aptitude test in high school and was told: "You can do just about anything you want. We don't recommend you become a seamstress." :confused:

    Maybe? All I know is that this suits me perfectly. On the very first question, when it asked what side of the theater/classroom I go to, I said aloud "neither, I go to the center".

    I prefer things in my life to be symmetrical (where I sit, the way I organize things, the face of a woman, etc), so being 9 and 9 seems fitting :wink:

    In many places, depending on schedule
    You responded as a right brained person to 8 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 10questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your left brain the most. The summary briefly describes your dominance type.

    It was too obvious which answer was for which brain side. Anyway, I tried to be completely honest.
