The Right Brain

According to the left-brain, right-brain dominance theory, the right side of the brain is best at expressive and creative tasks. Some of the abilities that are popularly associated with the right side of the brain include:

    Recognizing faces
    Expressing emotions
    Music
    Reading emotions
    Color
    Images
    Intuition
    Creativity

The Left Brain

The left-side of the brain is considered to be adept at tasks that involve logic, language and analytical thinking. The left-brain is often described as being better at:

    Language
    Logic
    Critical thinking
    Numbers
    Reasoning

recent research has shown that abilities in subjects such as math are actually strongest when both halves of the brain work together. Today, neuroscientists know that the two sides of the brain work together to perform a wide variety of tasks and that the two hemispheres communicate through the corpus collosum.

maybe this is why working with numbers has always been my strongest suit.  I always feel like my creative side is at war with my logical side and I am great at recognizing a face and can never remember a name to save my life....

75% Right. 25% Left.

Makes sense, considering I'm also left handed.

Loved the two top words on the brain map though - Creativity and chaos. Describes me and my life pretty well!  :laugh:

Without intentionally trying to manipulate the results, I took the test again and scored a 50/50 left/right score.  The difference appears to come from one change:  one the test that asked you to pick the color, not the word, I missed one last night and got it correct this time; while you can choose not to believe me, each sample in the test was presented for such a short time that I had to react without time to engage in the reflection needed to manipulate the results.

I think that is why there is a time limit, I realized on the last one of the group you are referring to what I was doing, but I think that is part of the reasoning, if I'd taken it a second time I could have manipulated the test.

I don't have to take the test, I already know which side of my brain is more dominant.
