Brain quiz

Snarfed from burkhardt:

Your Brain Usage Profile:

Auditory : 33%
Visual : 66%
Left : 52%
Right : 47%


William, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant and show a preference for visual learning, although not extreme in either characteristic. You probably tend to do most things in moderation, but not always.

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.

Re: Wow, that's VERY auditory...
Yep, apparently so, though I think they're putting 'verbal' under 'auditory', which a) I don't necessarily agree with and b) would explain the high score.

Well, it's hard to measure how "auditory" you are with a silent test imo...

Whoa! This is the first time 'teacher' hasn't been the 'best' option.

Engineer or athlete?
This whole cortical halves thing has me skeptical.

Though, the above sounds plausible enough, for you at least, Gran.

This is true. I have to 'do' things before they sink in. But i'm far from alone at that - especially at school. Most of us are the same. Which made me wonder why 'teacher' wasn't in there, like it usually is.

what's with the obsession with blue and grey?
The test is at least a little American-centric. In addition to the "A is to US" question (which may play slightly differently to Americans than others), the "North:South::Blue:Grey" will almost definitely play differently to Americans. That's because during the American Civil War, the North wore blue uniforms and the South wore grey uniforms. Most Americans are aware of this while relatively few non-Americans are and so would be very unlikely to pick that answer, regardless of how their brain worked.

Re: Hrm
Yes. It gets your IP, finds the country of origin, state/province/county/township/neighborhood/block/house/room and tailor makes your test just for you!

Well, as I said, it's something I'd expect just about every American over the age of 10 to know, but certainly wouldn't expect any foreigner to know.
