Congratulations, you can use your brain equally.

Disclaimer:
I had literally no 1-choice preference (usually 1 choice was a no-no though) on 3 or so of questions and on the color one my go-to action was to choose the word that had the color the word meant, but I consciously suppressed that and chose based on picking just on pairing colours, disregarding verbal content.

Plot twist: Choosing matching colours and disregarding all verbal meaning was not something the test makers considered the possibility of. Their explanations states people choose either verbal--->colour or verbal---->verbal, with no mentioned of colour--->colour.

Reading through the explanations of what is supposed to make a person choose 1 thing or another reveals more and more mistaken assumptions on the part of the test makers.

44/56

It should actually be closer to 50/50 because I made two mistakes on the word/color test and decided to retake it (without going any further, obvs :p).

This is actually what I did 2nd trip through... entered lizard mode.

I've taken a few of these. This one is short an fun but there are some out there that provide some interesting details.


The results were 47/53

The first question with the dancer only allowed me to select counter or clockwise but the dancer was shifting back and forth.

I probably would have been closer to 50/50 if I had a proper selection for that question.

41/59 because I made one mistake on the colour bit, without that it was basically 50/50.

Mistake? All the answers are right. What exactly were you trying to achieve?

69% right brained.

But that's also a right brained function I think.

Yes, it's supposed to be, and it effectively gives different answers than verbal--->colour, which they assume is the right brain one. This leads to results more towards left brain from thinking in a way that is actually more right brain than what they assume right brain thinking would result in.

You are left-brained.

88% left,12% right.

I knew i was left brained,but not by a margin as large as that. Interesting,although the test doesn't seem that accurate.

Right brained

28/72

I picked predominately "right-brain" answers and more "dual-brain" answers than "left-brain."

Good thing. We'd all be in trouble if you used 100% of your left AND 100% of your right. You're hard enough to argue with.

66:34. An amusing test for sure. Do you think they should put a time limit on the whole thing?

You are right-brained.

13/87

I think that the results were circumstantial though. I.e. I used my left hand because my right hand was on my mouse. Also, I've been kind of trying to be more right brained lately so that might have had some influence. I initially saw the dancer spinning clockwise but I could make it spin the other way by glancing at it with my peripheral vision.

Oh, and this website is why I got interested in experimenting with rightbrained(ism?) in case anyone finds it remotely interesting.

100% left brained.

I think that means I did it wrong.

Took it again and got 75/25 L/R.

Bow to your STJ overlord.
