Are you Right-Brained or Left-Brained?

I took a test and here are my results, which kind of surprised me because I always thought I was more right-brained than left-brained.

47% Right-brained, 52% Left-Brained, 42% Auditory Learner, 57% Visual Learner

Let me know what you think of the following synopsis of me.

"You are a well-rounded person, distinctly individualistic and artistic, an active and multidimensional learner. At the same time, you are logical and disciplined, can operate well within an organization, and are sensitive towards others without losing objectivity. You are organized and goal-directed. Although a "thinking" individual, you "take in" entire situations readily and can act on intuition.

You sometimes tend to vacillate in your learning styles. Learning might take you longer than someone of equal intellect, but you will tend to be more thorough and retain the material longer than those other individuals. You will alternate between logic and impulse. This vacillation will not normally be intentional or deliberate, so you may experience anxiety in situations where you are not certain which aspect of yourself will be called on.

With a slight preference for visual processing, you tend to be encompassing in your perceptions, process along multidimensional paths and be active in your attacking of situations or learning.
Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are, perhaps, a little too critical of yourself -- and of others -- while maintaining an "openness" which tempers that tendency. Indecisiveness is a problem and your creativity may not be in keeping with your potential. Being a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more immediate, obvious and the more functional."

Here are my results!!! I don't know about this??

Janel, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant and show a preference for visual learning, although not extreme in either characteristic. You probably tend to do most things in moderation, but not always.

Your left-hemisphere dominance implies that your learning style is organized and structured, detail oriented and logical. Your visual preference, though, has you seeking stimulation and multiple data. Such an outlook can overwhelm structure and logic and create an almost continuous state of uncertainty and agitation. You may well suffer a feeling of continually trying to "catch up" with yourself.

Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor. You can "size up" situations and take in information rapidly. However, you must then subject that data to being classified and organized which causes you to "lose touch" with the immediacy of the problem.

Your logical and methodical nature hamper you in this regard though in the long run it may work to your advantage since you "learn from experience" and can go through the process more rapidly on subsequent occasions.

You remain predominantly functional in your orientation and practical. Abstraction and theory are secondary to application. In keeping with this, you focus on details until they manifest themselves in a unique pattern and only then work with the "larger whole."

With regards to your career choices, you have a mentality that would be good as a scientist, coach, athlete, design consultant, or an engineering technician. You can "see where you want to go" and even be able to "tell yourself," but find that you are "fighting yourself" at the darndest times.

Hey! I'm so sorry we weren't able to make it to your church this morning. We have had a terrible day, but PTL it is much better this evening! When my son, Tanner, woke up this morning he could hardly breathe. We decided to head toward KC and locate the nearest er or urgent care facility. We made it to O'Fallon where we found an urgent care clinic. He was given a breathing treatment, a chest x-ray and about 4 scripts. We were almost home when the dr called on my cell to inform me, he had pneumonia!!! We located another pharmacy to have another prescription filled (where I broke down in tears), and we finally made it home around 5:30. We gave him another treatment, and he seems to be doing really well. Once again, Praise the Lord!!! Anyway, I'm disappointed we weren't able to meet, but I think you understand. Please pray for him as he continues his treatment throughout the week!
