Thread: Brain Hemispheres Test (Alpha)

  1. #1

    Default Brain Hemispheres Test (Alpha)

    Don't ask me why I am doing this. I'll explain later. Only take this test if you are an INTROTIM. There is a specific reason why I only want to see the results of introtims. There is also a reason why I have divided this whole thing by quadra. Well here is the test. When you are finished taking it, check the box in the poll that applies to you.

    Here is the test:

    This test is useless. Most dudes are left-brained, and most girls are right-brained.

    Does anyone know either a left-brained girl or right-brained dude !?

    False. There are various aspects of left-brain lateralization that are far more related to female characteristics than male characteristics. One example is more effective communication (language and communication are derived from the left hemisphere). Also, spatial skills are rooted in the right hemisphere of the brain. It has been tested and shown that, on average, males tend to have more developed spatial skills than females. In fact, males are generally more right-brained than females. If you can give me three trustworthy sources clearly stating that most males are left-brained and most females are right-brained, then I will truly be impressed.

    I am a right-brained person, and I can assure you, I am male.

    QED.

    I remember reading quite a few journal articles about cerebral lateralization for a psychology essay I had to write a few years ago, and most seemed to conclude this "I am left-brained"/"I am right-brained" stuff was garbage

    Prediction: for this test, right-brainers are irrationals and left-brainers are rationals.

    Were you trying to find subtypes?

    So more left-brained, but very close according to the test... o.o I think that it should be a bit more extensive.

    These rabbits were in fact on a raft, as were assorted rats and owls. There may have even been a reindeer.
    On a raft. And a boy was sitting on the raft.
    The picture worried me, I must say. There was an otter swimming in front of the raft, and I used to lie awake worrying about this otter, having to pull the raft, with all these other wretched animals on it who shouldn't even be on a raft, and the otter had such a thin tail to pull it with I thought. It worried me.
    Then one day-- and remember I had been looking at this picture every night for years-- I suddenly noticed the raft had a sail. Never seen it before. The otter was fine, just swimming along.

    66 left, 36 right

    I find in situations where the task definition is left up in the air, I am very scatterbrained and consider too many options. Usually the optimal middle-ground of progress+option-seeking comes when I am forced to use certain tools to get the job done.

    I'm not alpha but I post anyway.

    *results won't usually add up to 100% as this test measures each side seperately

    Left brain dominant individuals are more orderly, literal, articulate, and to the point. They are good at understanding directions and anything that is explicit and logical. They can have trouble comprehending emotions and abstract concepts, they can feel lost when things are not clear, doubting anything that is not stated and proven.

    Right brain dominant individuals are more visual and intuitive. They are better at summarizing multiple points, picking up on what's not said, visualizing things, and making things up. They can lack attention to detail, directness, organization, and the ability to explain their ideas verbally, leaving them unable to communicate effectively.

    Overall you appear to have fairly Equal Hemispheres

    I'm not a member of Alpha, but I want to share my glorious, highly unique results anyway. They came out as something like 45% right and 60% left. I identify more with their description of right-brained people, though, so I think the test is garbage.

    I'm not an Alpha quadra member, but my results are as follows:
    Right Brain||||||||||||42%
    Left Brain||||||||||||46%

    The tests on that site are kind of fun, even though they don't really reflect reality all that well.

    This is exactly the kind of scores I got when I took one of these ages ago. Slight right lead. I did have quite a few middle range this time.

    I don't think this is a good test, and I'm really suspicious whether this sort of tests can predict which hemisphere people favor.

    I associate the left brain with a type like ESTj (like Sheldon Cooper whom I think is Delta ST) and I associate the right brain with a type like ENFp (like Reggie Watts who's gotta be ENFp right?). I feel like this test focuses too much on order vs. chaos (similar to j/p), which is a part of it, but only a part.

    According to Darwinian theory, optimal evolution takes place with random variation and selective retention. The evolution savvy individual will try many different approaches when faced with a problem and select the best of those approaches. Many historical intellectuals have confessed their advantage was simply considering/exploring/trying more approaches than others. The left brain dominant type suffers from limited approaches, narrow-mindedness. The right brain dominant type suffers from too many approaches, scatterbrained. To maintain balanced hemispheres, you need to exercise both variability and selection. Just as a company will have more chance of finding a great candidate by increasing their applicant pool, an individual who considers a wider set of options is more likely to make quality decisions.
