It's Still True....

This here test said so, and, after reading my test results, I have to say it's spot on. Good thing is, it says I'm "balanced." oooh, ahhh...

Take the test for yourself and let me know what it says about you!

I tried to set up a direct link, but blogger wouldn't let me. Sorry 'bout that.



Here are my results for your reading pleasure.

Your Brain Usage Profile:

Auditory : 50%
Visual : 50%
Left : 47%
Right : 52%

Betty, 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.

A problem with hemispheric balance is that you will tend to feel more conflict than someone who has a clearly established dominance. At times the conflict will be between what you feel and what you think but will also involve how you attack problems and how you perceive information. Details which will seem important to the right hemis- phere will be discounted by the left and vice versa, which can present a hindrance to learning efficiently.

In the same vein, 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.

On the positive side, you bring resources to problem-solving that others may not have. You can perceive the "big picture" and the essential details simultaneously and maintain the cognitive perspective required. You possess sufficient verbal skills to translate your intuition into a form which can be understood by others while still being able to access ideas and concepts which do not lend themselves to language.

Your balanced nature might lead you to second-guess yourself in artistic endeavors, losing some of the fluidity, spontaneity and creativity that otherwise would be yours.

With your balanced sensory styles, you process data alternately, at times visually and other times auditorially. This usage of separate memories may cause you to require more time to integrate information or re-access it. When presented with situations which force purely visual or purely auditory learning, increased anxiety is likely and your learning efficiency will decrease.

Your greatest benefit is that you can succeed in multiple fields due to the great plasticity and flexibility you possess.

I am 50/50 left and right and just lightly more visual than auditory.
I knew that was true.
We are a couple of well balanced women!

Your description is different from mine, but for the most part it fits me, too.
I don't find that I get stressed when in a situation that is only visual or only auditory learning. I feel comfortable in either setting.
I used to not study a lot at college, but still get good grades. People asked how and I said, "I listened."

Wanna read what it said about me and see if it fits you?

I knew I only had half a mind. LOLOL!
sharon, you possess an interesting balance of hemispheric and sensory characteristics, with a slight right-brain dominance and a slight preference for visual processing.

Since neither of these is completely centered, you lack the indecision and second-guessing associated with other patterns. You have a distinct preference for creativity and intuition with seemingly sufficient verbal skills to be able to translate in any meaningful way to yourself and others.

You tend to see things in "wholes" without surrendering the ability to attend to details. You can give them sufficient notice to be able to utitlize and incorporate them as part of an overall pattern.

In the same way, while you are active and process information simultaneously, you demonstrate a capacity for sequencing as well as reflection which allows for some "inner dialogue."

All in all, you are likely to be quite content with yourself and your style although at times it will not necessarily be appreciated by others. You have sufficient confidence to not second-guess yourself, but rather to use your critical faculties in a way that enhances, rather than limits, your creativity.

You can learn in either mode although far more efficiently within the visual mode. It is likely that in listening to conversations or lecture materials you simultaneously translate into pictures which enhance and elaborate on the meaning.

It is most likely that you will gravitate towards those endeavors which are predominantly visual but include some logic or structuring. You may either work particularly hard at cultivating your auditory skills or risk "missing out" on being able to efficiently process what you learn. Your own intuitive skills will at times interfere with your capacity to listen to others, which is something else you may need to take into account.

It still ads up to 100%, Sharon!
You are just more creative - that's not a bad thing.

Oh, I shouldn't have taken up so much space on your comments, I ended up puting the whole thing on my blog. LOL! SEE! I miss that other side of my brain...

Oh, you are right Kay, I was doing "creative publishing" hehe!
