Board games definitely, but I don't mind some card games.


2. A or B:
A. I like to find new ways to do old jobs
B. When I find a good way to do a job, I stick with it

B. I find a way to do the job and then I stick with it!

3. A or B:
A. I tend to start a lot of jobs that I never finish
B. I finish one job then I start a new one.

A. I have alot of things going at one time and I even finish them occasionally.

4. A or B:
A. I use my imagination when it's necessary
B. I spend a lot of time in my own imaginations.

B. I spend alot of time using my imagination

5. A or B:
A. I find reading maps difficult.
B. Reading maps are easy.

A. Reading maps are difficult.

6. A or B:
A. I look for the best way to solve a problem.
B. I look for different answers to a problem.

I do both of these. Usually the best way to solve a problem is a different answer.

7. A or B:
A. I like to think in pictures.
B. I think in words.

A. I only think in pictures so I don't know if I like it or not, it's just the way it is.

8. A or B:
A. New ideas are fun.
B. Tried and tested ways are best.

I do both. It takes awhile to warm up to new ideas, but as long as they are mine, I'm okay with that. But once I've figured out how to do something, that's the way I always do it!



9. A or B:
A. Other people don't understand how I organise things.
B. Other people think I organise things well.

I do both. At work I'm highly organised and people think that's great and a little OCD. At home, my husband does not understand my organisation techniques. Mostly because this consists of various piles.

10. A or B:
A. Sometimes feelings don't matter.
B. Sometimes logic doesn't matter.

I'm both on here, too. If it's my feelings, it matters alot. And logic, well, I probably have a demented sense of logic, so I'm not sure if it looks like it ever matters to other people!

11. A or B:
A. When I work, I keep track of time.
B. When I work, I loose track of time.

At my job, I keep track of time. If it's for myself, I loose track of time and it doesn't really matter.

12. A or B:
A. With hard decisions, I carefully evaluate alternatives.
B. With hard decisions, I use my intuition.

A. Definitely.

13. A or B:
A. I do easy things first and then important things later.
B. I do important things first, then easy things later.

B. Usually important things equal boring, so I do those first to get them out of my way.

14. A or B:
A. In a new situation, I think of too many things to do.
B. In a new situation, I can't think of anything to do.

A. I get pretty flustered in new situations, so it doesn't matter much.

15. A or B:
A. I prefer everything to be different everyday
B. I prefer everything to be the same everyday.

B. Same is good.

16. A or B:
A. I believe I am right because I have good reasons
B. I believe I am right even if I can't explain why

A. I usually have a good reason for why I am right.

17. A or B:
A. I plan
B. I like to play by the ear

A. I plan as much as I can.

18. A or B:
A. everything should be placed in a particular place
B. Where you put things depends on what you're doing

A. Everything has a particular place that is specific to the job.

19. A or B:
A. Other people think I act differently everytime
B. Other people think I act the same.

B. I'm always the same. Good and predictable.

20. A or B:
A. I make a list and I forget it eventually.
B. I make a list and I tick off each item as I do it

B. I'm a list maker.

21. A or B:
A. I like to find my way of doing things
B. I like to follow clear instructions.

A. Usually instructions are confusing and not made for people like me. I have to figure out the way to do it and then do it.

19 20 21- one mark for A

if your score is below 12: you're a left brainer

if your score is above 12: you're a right brainer :D


I didn't know how to score mine because there are several questions that I am both on. Maybe my brain is broke?

if your score is below 12: you're a left brainer

if your score is above 12: you're a right brainer :D[/quote]

OK that gives me 13 (but I could have done a 0.5 for at least 2 other questions, so that would make 12 - so I guess I use both halves about the same?

Maybe that would explain why people have said to me that I am a mass of contradictions?

It is odd, I come out in quizzes as left brain dominant, but I have a math disability. I wonder how that can be.
