This is my brain on...

Quizzes tend to suck. We all tend to take them, even though they're usually poorly written, badly planned, and boring to take. This makes it extra-nice to find a good one, one that's fun to take.

This is my brain...

Auditory : 35%
Visual : 65%
Left : 57%
Right : 42%

Thistle, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant and show a preference for visual learning, although not extreme in either characteristic.

Your left-hemisphere dominance implies that your learning style is organized and structured, detail oriented and logical. Your visual preference, though, has you seeking stimulation and multiple data. Such an outlook can overwhelm structure and logic and create an almost continuous state of uncertainty and agitation. You may well suffer a feeling of continually trying to "catch up" with yourself.

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. You can "size up" situations and take in information rapidly. However, you must then subject that data to being classified and organized which causes you to "lose touch" with the immediacy of the problem.

Your logical and methodical nature hamper you in this regard though in the long run it may work to your advantage since you "learn from experience" and can go through the process more rapidly on subsequent occasions.

You remain predominantly functional in your orientation and practical. Abstraction and theory are secondary to application. In keeping with this, you focus on details until they manifest themselves in a unique pattern and only then work with the "larger whole."

With regards to your career choices, you have a mentality that would be good as a scientist, coach, athlete, design consultant, or an engineering technician. You can "see where you want to go" and even be able to "tell yourself," but find that you are "fighting yourself" at the darndest times.

I think the quiz is reasonably accurate, and probably gave better results than I would expect for a 20 question test. I really did enjoy taking it though, thinking about why I was picking this option over that one, pondering relationships, etc.

If you do take it, I suggest looking at the 'review questions' link. More interesting information there.
