Finally, A Diagnosis…
Apparently, being 77% Right-Brained is at the root of many of my issues. Here’s what Mind Media had to say after I took their handy-dandy brain test:
Lisa, you show a strong right-hemisphere dominance with somewhat of a preference for auditory learning, a combination which often causes significant cognitive discomfort and indecisiveness.
You are likely verbally fluent and can be a charismatic speaker, perceiving entire complex relationships and letting that understanding intuitively guide what you say. In this regard, you have many of the attributes to be an outstanding teacher. In addition, you have enough visual capacity to be multidimensional when necessary, although your natural tendency is toward sequential processing.
Even though you tend immediately to perceive the “whole picture,” your auditory mode provides a natural vehicle for analyzing and listening and maintaining breaking it down. You organize with difficulty and you find yourself experiencing a lot of internal conflicts in your learning and life patterns. The preference of auditory learning indicates your basic reflectiveness coupled with a tendency to process information sequentially. At the same time, you retain sufficient orientation towards visual learning to integrate.
Oh, and my favorite sentence:
With this combination, you are likely continually telling yourself that you “have to get on top of things”and, at the same time finding out that it doesn’t happen that often. You find yourself fighting yourself much of the time.
Are these people hiding in my closet?
Thanks, Bonnie, for the fun link! Now I’ve got to fight myself to get back to work.
Seriously, I’ve got to get on top of things.
Oh I can SO RELATE to this!! It’s hard. But, Lisa, what you need to write is simply being mulled over in your mind….it’s marinating until it makes it’s way to the paper. I find that much of my planning goes on in my head for often weeks before I have any “output”.
Praying that the “output” comes in due time.
when you figure out the secret formula for getting on top of things, let me know.
Because I need all the help I can get! =)
That was funny, thanks for sharing!
This is my first visit to your blog. I really enjoyed this post. I look forward to coming back soon.
I am going to take that test right now! How do they do that?!!!
That is the neatest test
I just took it and will post the results on my blog
It is kind of creepy how much they “know” me – hehe
I took the test too and I was a draw… only slightly more left brained…. :)
Your Brain Usage Profile:
Auditory : 55%
Visual : 44%
Left : 55%
Right : 45%
Have a great day!
Thanks for sharing this. I took the test and found the results to be very true to my nature! I’m
Auditory : 66%
Visual : 33%
Left : 57%
Right : 42%
I’m going to have my husband and children take this test soon. I think it will help each of us learn a few things about how the others think.
Your Brain Usage Profile:
Auditory : 29%
Visual : 70%
Left : 52%
Right : 47%
I work both sides of my brain equally. No wonder I’m always so tired!
Mine told me I talk to myself. which is true. Now I just have an excuse! :)
p.s…..I’m twittering. I know you just can’t wait to start following me and see what interesting things are going on in my life right this minute! HA!
I know I am a little right brained, because I can’t put a link within a post to save my life!
But anyway, I did the test too:)
and so did Jenny Hope!
I was a little surprised how accurate it was…
This part got me good..
” Your auditory preference, on the other hand, implies that you process information sequentially and unidimensionally. This combination of right-brain and auditory modes creates conflict, as you want to process data more rapidly than your natural processes allow.”
Crack me up! I think I’ll have to take this test too.
I love these kinds of tests. I immediately took it, and it says I’m balanced. Ha! That’s funny.
Oh, and I tagged you on my blog. Please check it out.
Fun one! I was “well-balanced.” This seemed accurate: “You can perceive the “big picture” and the essential details simultaneously and maintain the cognitive perspective required.”
HOWEVER, “you may have a problem with organization. You might organize your time and/or space only to feel the need to reorganize five to ten weeks later.”
Yup. Off to go organize something. AGAIN.
“You will at times experience conflict between how you feel and what you think which will generally be resolved in favor of what you think. You will find yourself interested in the practical applications of whatever material you have learned or whatever situation you face and will retain the ability to refine whatever knowledge you possess or aspects of whatever position you are in.”
It said I’m a Left-Brained. Weird questions, too!
Enjoyed your blog. And was interested how much of your test related to me, yet my test was so different! Then again, because of my “thinking pattern” I can take the test and get different answers each time! I call that “wishy-washy”!
That’s hilarious! I had to go do it too!
i’ve taken a couple of personality tests and it’s always scary to read the results…. just like somebody climbed in my head and dug around!
How do they do it?? Mine nailed me dead on!! Thanks for sharing!
Ok, that is totally interesting. I’m going over to take the test.
I haven’t done this one yet. I’m afraid they’ll discover there are no brain cells left to analyze!!!
Came by to see a picture of the new hair…hint, hint, hint!
