are you right brained or left brained? if ur left brained u lik order and organization you tend to go with the facts rather than gut feelings and usually arent too creative.... if ur right brained u go with the flow more and dont plan things out very much... thy pretty much live in the moment and are more creative...

so heres the quiz http://homeworktips.about.com/library/brainquiz/bl_leftrightbrain_quiz.htm

left or right brained?

P.S. im left brained!!!

edit: i guess there is middle... so i guess that means you use a lil of both... sry should
have mentioned tht earlier

edit 2: i got this idea for this thread when i took the test at school... but the one i took was diff... it was a test related to winnie the pooh and wich caracter u were... it sounds kiddy but it was much better than this one but i tried to find it and i cant so if ne1 could find it id appriciate it!! thanks

You are a middle brain dominant student!

You are open minded but not gullible about things or people. You may run into trouble making decisions sometimes, while your logical brain plays tug-of-war with your gut instinct. You enjoy the arts, but you could also do well in science and math. You appreciate the beauty of all things in life, and are well-rounded. Middle brain students would do well on The Apprentice, since they can have a strong mix of gut instinct and an appreciation for numbers. You would have a strong career in business, but you may not go that route; you may be more interested in studying the arts and sciences in college. You would be wise to read over the characteristics of left and right brain students and consider whether you fall into the traps of either type. For instance, extreme right brain dominant students can get too bogged down in thought, while extreme left brain students can be rigid in their views.
I am a bit of both it seems :)

It says I'm "left brain dominant"...

It's a very sloppy test, if you ask me. >_>
Many of the questions were 50-50 affairs, but they don't give you a 50-50 answer. >_<

You want a personality test (http://similarminds.com/global-adv.html)?

That one = pretty accurate.

Stability results were high which suggests you are very relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic..

Orderliness results were medium which suggests you are moderately organized, hard working, and reliable while still remaining flexible, efficient, and fun.

Extraversion results were low which suggests you are very reclusive, quiet, unassertive, and secretive.

trait snapshot:
introverted, secretive, reclusive, tough, non social, observer, fearless, solitary, libertarian, detached, does not like to lead, outsider, abides the rules, mind over heart, good at saving money, does not like to stand out, does not make friends easily, self sufficient, not aggressive, likes the unknown, unconcerned with external opinion, strong, abstract, independent, very intellectual, analytical, high self control

It doesn't tell you what side brain you use, but you can determine that from your results. ^^

For that other test....
Personally, I think the other is more accurate.....

Edit: i took the quiz and i guess im right brained now...hmmm

@ reshin: no im left handed and im right brained. and the right side of your brain controls the left and vice versa.

Does this make me sound nerdy?

You probably like some order in your life and in the classroom. You are comfortable listening to lectures and taking most test types, but you might be uncomfortable with open-ended essay assignments that require you to imagine scenarios. You want class directions to be clear. A disorganized teacher or unclear assignments will drive you crazy! You are good at analyzing problems to find the right answer. You may have considered pursuing a degree in science or math. You don't like mushy love movies. You might be a Jeopardy champ one day, not because you're smarter than right brain students, but because you are able to answer questions quickly.

The first test was a little crummy, I thought. I've never gotten a left-brained diagnosis before...

The second one was also kinda bad. I'm a depressed, insecure, workaholic, inefficient, inflexible, no-fun, reclusive, overly organized perfectionist who is irritable, unfriendly, fragile, fearful, submissive, solitary, and unadventurous. (Why'd they ignore my good traits?)

Y'know what, test? **** you. I like being a sad, workaholic hermit.

I think doing that test always gives either one answer or another, making only two possible outcomes!

I mean, mine was EXACTLY the same as Moleynator's....

Going with my theme of both/and, I am, not surprisingly, both. I am both technical and creative, although not to the extent that others are. However, I do tend to learn towards the technical end of things. (New phrase: Creative technicality.)
