~ brain persuasion test ~

11 December 2003

i took a brain persuasion test today and my brain usage profile is:

  • Auditory : 28%
  • Visual : 71%
  • Left : 31%
  • Right : 68%

thay also provided a summary for the result, which i think is fairly interesting:

ithal, 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.

some of the descriptions are quite accurate, especially regarding how i try to visualize and crete diagrams in my head during lectures when i was in college. the fact that i have “sufficient verbal skills to be able to translate in any meaningful way to yourself and others” is, however, still questionable. everyone and their dogs know that i am nowhere near articulated.

i took the same test about 5 years ago, and i had a slightly different result:

  • Auditory : 25%
  • Visual : 75%
  • Left : 45%
  • Right : 55%

this test, unlike the previous one i mentioned, did not have any summary. i guess i don’t change that much over time. i was slightly more visual and less tippie to the right. however, it looks like i was more balance in the head than i am now.

what’s your brain usage profile?
