Take you own left brain/right brain test .

Here are my results. Interesting that at no point does this summary include that I am almost pathologically skeptical of online personality and brain tests. They missed that!!!!!!!!!

Mary, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant with a balanced preference for auditory and visual inputs. Because of your "centrist" tendencies, the distinctions between various types of brain usage are somewhat blurred. I think this is a polite way of saying, "you're boring cupcake."

Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor, unless it requires total spontaneity and ability to improvise, your weaker traits. However, you are far from rigid or overcontrolled. You possess a degree of individuality, perceptiveness, and trust in your intuition to function at much more sophisticated levels than most. (I am extremely fond of this sentence!)

Having given sufficient attention to detail, you can readily perceive the larger aspects and implications of a situation or of learning. You are functional and practical, but can blend abstraction and theory into your framework readily. Again, all code words for middle of the road, average, mediocre, ho-hum....

The equivalence of your auditory and visual learning orientation gives you two equally effective sensory input systems, each with distinctive features. Medium-you are the eighth dwarf, Dreary
You can process both unidimensionally and multidimensionally with equal facility. When needed, you sequence material while at other times you "intake it all" and store it for processing later. You are schizophrenic, your answer depends on which personality is in charge of your body at the moment, Sybil.
Your natural ability to use your senses is also synthesized in your way of learning. You can be reflective in your approach, absorbing material in a non-aggressive manner, and at other times voracious in seeking out stimulation and experience. You're all over the board, we are very afraid of you and our website has contacted men in white coats with very big nets. Please don't lock your doors and come along peacefully when the big van arrives.
Overall you tend to be somewhat more critical of yourself than is necessary and avoid enjoying life too much because of a sense of duty.
This is true. I'm not having near enough fun
You feel somewhat constrained and tend to sometimes restrict your expressiveness. In any given situation, you will opt for the rational, and learning of almost any type should be easy for you.
So then if I CAN'T learn anything new, does that mean the test is wrong. Or, as I suspect, does this mean that my brain filled up a while back and now I have to forget something in order to free up the space necessary to remember something new.
You might need certain ideas explained to you in order to fit them into your scheme of things, but you're at least open to that!
Not true, I refuse to be open to new ideas, where's the fun in that?

Funny! I'll have to take the test, although I usually come across as quite the dummy.

Myra Johnson said...

ROFLOL!!!! Mary, leave it to you to turn a personality test into a comic opportunity!

Mary Connealy said...

Well, maybe you can get some comedy out of it Chickey, good luck.

Mary Connealy said...

It's true though Myra it's all just CODE WORDS for, "We don't have a CLUE what's goin' on in your head, you poor, poor thing."


Myra Johnson said...

LOL! Read my blog tomorrow. Not nearly as funny as yours but all in all the results were very interesting. And surprisingly accurate!

Erica Vetsch said...

LOL! If they had let your test be essay instead of multiple choice, I wonder what the results would've been.

Mary Connealy said...

YES a brain ESSAY TEST. I would totally get a good grade on that.

They said at the beginning of the tests 'there are no wrong answers.' but you know what? I think I found some.

Ausjenny said...

Love the post. did the test and well seems im a rare individual
heres the first paragraph

Jenny, you are one of those rare individuals who are perfectly "balanced" in both your hemispheric tendencies and your sensory learning preferences. However, there is both good news and bad news.

Mary Connealy said...


In a brain test, Jenny???

Okay, I think we all need to STEP AWAY FROM THE TEST.

No one has to get hurt here today.

I'm off to see what Myra came up with from the test. :)

Myra Johnson said...

Rereading your results, Mary, I am starting to question the validity of this test. Either that or you cheated. ;>)I mean, tend to sometimes restrict your expressiveness???

Ausjenny said...
