Left Brain/Right Brain? 
19th-Dec-2008 10:50 am
The start of many posts today...because I'm stuck at home in a snowstorm. Don't know how accurate these are but it's fun, or it alleviates boredom for a few moments....

Try these tests...Dancer

Surprisingly, according to this test, I appear to be right brain oriented.

Hemispheric Dominance Inventory Test

Hmm according to this one I'm more left-brain oriented but the score is close between left and right. So I guess I use both left and right about the same so I can lean either way in tests?

Another test:

Right Brain/ Left Brain Quiz
The higher of these two numbers below indicates which side of your brain has dominance in your life. Realising your right brain/left brain tendancy will help you interact with and to understand others.
Left Brain Dominance:11(11)
Right Brain Dominance:10(10)
Right Brain/ Left Brain Quiz

Well, this one does also seem to indicate that I'm fairly close on using both sides of the brain.

Oh well, that was interesting for a few moments...looking for something else to do.

I'm definitely left brain dominant in the dancer test but although they put me in left brain for the second quiz I answered 9 as a right brain and 9 as a left brain. I would say that puts as can't make up my mind.

We're similar then. I've added a third test. Try that one.

This has confused things even more as I have come out as definitely right brain dominant with it. The answers may be skewed by my training as a librarian, when you are talking to someone or answering their question look straight at them. I've done that for so long I can't remember if I turned my head right or left before training.

I was definitely right brain for the dancer- I struggled for a minute to change my mind-set and managed for a half second to see her dancing the left brain way, but that was it.

I took the second test twice because there was one question I was dithering on. Both times it said I was right-brained; 7 to 11 the first time and 8 to 10 the second time.

The third one said leftbrained, but the margin was slim- exactly the same as your graph.

The dancer test is flawed. The way her foot passes lower on one side tricks one into assuming that's the side closer to you, so pretty much everyone gets the same result: clockwise.

As for the other one, I'm 11:10 left brain, which doesn't seem very conclusive.

Not everyone sees it that way. I see both sets of spin, both deosil and widdershins

Great I'm kinda split down the middle!
I must be schizophrenic :¬D or at least ambibrained, which figures with me.
Admittedly my hearing is one sided and that influences which way a turn or where I choose to sit in a room. so that slanted a few of the questions but correcting for that in the first I've got a 50/50 split for all 3 quizzes.

This is very interesting. I was:
*right brained for the dancer; after a minute or two of practice I could get her to go either way on demand though
*left brained for the second test (right:left 7:11)
*right brained (right:left 11:9)for the last test

Here is a stoopid egg, if you feel like clicking ...
