Brain Test...It's Alive!

A week ago a friend of mine shared the results and the link to a brain test she took. Since it’s taking me forever to finish a couple of profound (at least to me) posts that I have been working on and since there is no completion day in sight, I decided to take the test myself. Let’s see how accurate this test is.

Darlene, you show a slight right-hemisphere dominance with a moderate preference for auditory processing, an unusual and somewhat paradoxical combination of characteristics.

(Huh? Thought I was visual…that’s weird)

You are drawn to a random and sometimes nonchalant synthesis of material.
(Can someone please tell me what this means?)
You learn as it seems important to a specific situation, and might even develop a resentment of others who attempt to direct your learning down a specific channel.

(Yeah, I can see that!)

Your right-hemispheric dominance provides a structure that is only loosely organized and one which processes entire swatches of reality, overlooking details.

(I am a big picture person)

You are emotional in your reactions and perceptual more than logical in your approach, although you can impose structure and a language base when necessary.

(This could be arguable since in the past I have been told “You have no emotions, you are as cold as a stone.”)

Your auditory preference, on the other hand, implies that you process information sequentially and unidimensionally.

(Does this mean I am a math person? Cause I am definitely a math person and a language person…those two are not often paired together.)
This combination of right-brain and auditory modes creates conflict, as you want to process data more rapidly than your natural processes allow.

(No comment)

Your tendency to be creative and free-flowing is accompanied by sufficient ability to organize and be logical, allowing you a reasonable degree of success in a number of different endeavors.

(I like where this is going)

You take in information methodically and systematically which can then be synthesized rapidly. In this manner, you manage to function consistently well, although certainly less efficiently than you desire.

(I do like order…love lists. I have many lists. Sometimes I re-do lists to make them more organized!)

You prefer the abstract and are a theoretician at heart while retaining the ability to be practical.

(Not abstract art…right? Cause I do not like abstract art!)

You find the symbolism in a great deal of what you encounter and are something of a "mystic."

(No, not mystic. Not at all. Jesus all the way!)

With regards to your lifestyle, you have the mentality which would be good as a philosopher, writer, journalist, or instructor, or possibly as a systems designer or social worker.

(Everything but systems designer sounds about right. Computers are aliens to me. My work with aliens is based on a limited understanding of their language!)

Perhaps most important is your ability to "listen to your inner voice" as a mode of skipping over unnecessary steps to achieve your goals.

(Great place to end. The Holy Spirit. Love the Holy Spirit!)


  1. Fun! I took this same test not long ago and enjoyed analyzing the results. I was thinking about posting on it, too. You beat me to it!
