No big surprise - I'm mostly right-brained

You Are 25% Left Brained, 75% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

Wha...? I just did one of these on my blog today, I'm 45%-55% but I guess somehow we're still pretty similar.

hmmmm.....mine turned out 70% left/30% right. I could swear I'm a lot more creative than THAT, but then I wasn't too surprised at the result. I am way too logical, orderly, and "by the book" for my own good sometimes. And, it gets worse every year! :)

i got the same result as you did. i laughed at the first question -- my desk (heck, my whole sewing room) looks like it got hit with a category 5 hurricane.

I'm 60% left and 40% right. Interesting...

Hi Gigi, I figured I was pretty much right brained already, but I did the test. I'm 35/65. Not as creative as you, but still creative. I think the difference stems from my Taurean need to not have so much change in my life. Plus, I didn't like some of the questions. I'm neither mathematical nor musical. Hee hee.

Well I'm either incredibly boring or very balalnced. LOL 50%-50%. Thanks for that link Gigi, it was fun.

I expected a 50/50 result like Cindy's, but today I'm 35/65. Actually, that adds up to 100%, which is highly unlikely. I think the test failed to take into account the enormous parts of my brain that I rarely use.

I wonder what the test result would be when my other personality is in charge?

35% left, 65% right. The one that amused me was the question "Are you more mathematical or musical?" I was a math major in college, and I'm a musician. I wish I could have said "both"

I agree with Gorgeous Things. Music vs. math is not a particularly good "choice" to have to make. I know the quiz is just a fun little thing, but there have been many studies showing a link between math and music abilities. I didn't realize that until my daughter began showing talents in both. Try being a whiz at math as well as being the only female drummer in high school: good thing she was a determined young lady!

"Musical form is close to mathematics -- not perhaps to mathematics itself,
but certainly to something like mathematical thinking and relationship." -- Igor Stravinsky

Well, I'm 55/45. I suspected as much. I'm with Ann on the math/music question. Hard choice - I'm a science teacher (heavy on the math), but have had my share of music lessons and continue to be involved in music. In fact there were other questions that I wish I could have answered both to. The desk question - it is what I call "controlled chaos". I have my stuff organized into piles of related, yet unorganized stuff. Ok, I know that didn't make sense. Enough. I'll quit now.

Total suprise to me that I came out 70% Right brained. Then I took their little logic test (How Logical are You?) and came out 100% correct. No wonder I can't figure out what I want to be when I grow up!

These things are fun, aren't they? I don't know how accurate they really are - I took the "How Obsessive Are You?" quiz and I'm apparently almost a female Monk (if you're familiar with the Tony Shaloub character). I'm not totally shocked but didn't realize I was that bad. Maybe I should stay away from polls that remind me of my eccentricities!

75% left/25% right
I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised.
