Here's another test that you all might have seen that is similar to the dancer test, in that it tests for right or left brain dominance.

This is tricky.. I kept wanting to say the word and not the color..

Your right brain will try to say the colour while your left brain will read the word! Can you do it in less than a minute?


Just did. Took about 15-20 seconds.

If you can complete this test easily then the right side of your brain is dominant.

If you find it hard you're a left brainer.


According to this, I'm right-brained.

According to most such tests, I'm right-brained. Yet, mathematics is my strongest area, I'm not a risk taker, rarely ever impulsive, and I much prefer first examining details to 'the big picture'.

On this test, I found neither simple, nor hard. I am definitely left dominant though.

I found the test only slightly difficult...so I would say what that personality test that I took when I was 18 said...equal left - right brained.

I just tried both tests. With the color/words it was very difficult to say the color instead of reading the word so that makes me a left brainer. But the dancer kept spinning clockwise no matter how much I concentrated to make her spin the other direction, so that makes me a right brainer. And I had to check back to both of the tests several times to make sure I got the right-brain/left-brain results down correctly, so what does that make me -- forgetful, dyslexic, or a split personality?

I can do it, but struggle. Left-brain for me.

edit...

looked at the dancer one and it says right brain...it's completely spinning clockwise, can't even visualize it going the other way. The positioning of her limbs indicates a clockwise spin. period.

8O
or did the cruel designer of the test do that so I'd argue the point and prove which side of my brain is dominant?? I think I smell something burning...

edit #2
GAAAAAHHHHH gave myself a rest, now I can change it at will. And I feel like a moron for coming back to edit this again. Wait... what?

edit # 3 Ohhhhhhhhhhh.....

"This much is true: you process some visual stimuli on the right side of your brain, and some on the left. You also have two optic nerves, one from the back of each eyeball. On their way to the brain these nerves meet up in a location called the optic chiasm. From the optic chiasm, information about the left side of your field of view, no matter which eye it’s coming from, is sent to the right hemisphere of your brain to be processed. Information about the right side of your field of view is sent to the left hemisphere. Therefore, if you want to see what your right brain makes of the dancer, you just need to look over to her right and watch her from your peripheral vision. Looking to her left will show you the left-brained view."

Edit #4
I know lots about bistable perception now... 8)

Edit #5
Tritone paradox...

Sorry about that WP.

I found it difficult for the first line, then I think my brain sort of figured out what I was doing and after that it was as if my brain didn't even throw up the contradictory evidence and I rattled of the rest of them without pause.

So it says I am right brained. However: most tests seem to put me on right/left brain equality. Some kink over to the left, some to the right. But the ones that give percentages usually split it right down the middle. Maybe I'm ambidextrous with my brain as I am with my limbs.

Took me two lines to shift me to observe the colour automatically and not the word, but word-reading would still feel as the default. Well within 15 seconds, a whole minute seems far to long though.

I was not good at it, apparently left brain dominant. Yet im illogical and not good at maths and I think they should reverse those 2 lists as the opposite of all those things are true of me.

I found the test really easy...the only thing that threw me off was the dark green color...

I found the word/colour test completely impossible. I really had to think very hard to work out what the colour was, while all the time my brain was screaming the word at me!

I can ignore the color and say the word with no problem at all. Ignoring the word and saying the color is much harder.
