    Hello,

    I found this website that tests which side of your brain is more dominant. It only takes a few minutes, you should try it!

    Just go to this link:
    http://www.angelfire.com/wi/2brains/test.html

    If you want to share your results with me I'd be interested to see how you did. I found out that I use both sides of my brain equally (scoring 11=right and 10=left).

    I'm just about equal - 11 left-brained and 9 right.

    I sure like this better than the tree test! lol

    We only have one left brained person so far (haleycole) but the rest are right brained...except for Marta608 and myself who are equal. Very interesting...thanks for participating everyone! :)

    Marta - have you heard anything about people that use their sides equally? I tried doing some reseach on it but haven't been able to find anything...

    Thanks.

    I took a class in college in Communications and we did all kinds of tests for our communications syles. It was most helpful to me in sales because it helped me to identify my clients' communications styles and how I needed to tailor my communications to help them understand complex issues.

    I am a multi-tasker (or, I was before my brain went soft :). I can usually do everything well enough but there is no one thing at which I am a natural nor which I have mastered. It's a blessing and a curse.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi Val:

    My results were L=9, R=8. I'll have to go back to the site to see what it means. Very interested in knowing.

    Hugs to all,

    Hello!

    60/40 hey? I did another test before and it said that I am 50/50 left/right brained...crazy. I too agree that it is a blessing and a curse...I've always wished that I was one or the other (that I was naturally good at something). Instead I am average at alot of things...

    I did read somewhere on the internet that most geniuses use both sides somewhat equally! haha! So I guess instead of wishing we were one side or the other, we can just go with that! ;)

    In my personal relationships, I have found it easier to relate to those somewhere in the middle.

    Those at the extremes are often geniuses but they seem to suffer in their lives and relationships.

    I guess we all have our crosses to bear. I really can't complain, I guess.

    Love, Mikie

    I was exactly even... explains my vacillation, sometimes outright war, between my 'gut instincts' and my 'logic', hehe...

    good test, thanks!

    I love these tests!

    I am completely left-brained!

    I used to be a multi-tasker, like Mikie, but now I'm lucky if I can do one thing at a time!!

    11/8 but I'm not sue I know what it means. I went to the article mentioned in one of the replies, but it was hard to read (too much text).

    and/but, for whatever reason, Betty Edward's methods outlined in 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' certainly seemed to work quite well for a number of people in a very short time...

    L=8 R=5

    Some of those questions that ask if you write down things are things that I do in my head instead of writing them down. Is anyone else like that?


    Found this site http://www.mtsu.edu/~studskl/hd/hemispheric_dominance.html

    and it gives you the meaning and it gives you information about left brain vs. right brain.[This Message was Edited on 08/28/2006]

    I just think it means we're confused a lot. lol

    I can ALWAYS see both sides of a story or situation. It drive me crazy! Seems as if it would be so much easier to see black or white. On the other hand, it's made me a good negotiator - back when I could negotiate.

    I thought this was interesting. I got it.... somewhere.

    "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."

    ...to using my whole brain, according to the site. I'm 60% L and 40% R on the first site, and I had 10 L and 9 R on the other site.

    Interesting test! God Bless.
