I Report, You Decide

My Brain Usage Profile, via the World Wide Rant

Auditory : 58%
Visual : 41%
Left : 52%
Right : 47%

Bigwig, your hemispheric dominance is equally divided between left and right brain, while you show a moderate preference for auditory versus visual learning, signs of a balanced and flexible person.

Your balance gives you the enviable capacity to be verbal and literate while retaining a certain "flair" and individuality. You are logical and compliant but only to a degree. You are organized without being compulsive, goal-directed without being driven, and a "thinking" individual without being excessively so.

The one problem you might have is that your learning might not be as efficient as you would like. At times you will work from the specific to the general, while at other times you'll work from the general to the specific. Sometimes you will be logical in your approach while at other times random. Since you cannot always control the choice, you may experience frustrations not normally felt by persons with a more defined and directed learning style.

You may also minimally experience conflicts associated with auditory processing. You will be systematic and sequential in your processing of information, you will most often focus on a single dimension of the problem or material, and you will be more reflective, i.e., "taking the data in" as opposed to "devouring" it.

Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are, perhaps, a little too critical of yourself - and of others - while maintaining an "openness" which is redeeming. Indecisiveness is a problem and your creativity is not in keeping with your potential. Being a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more immediate, the more obvious and the more functional.

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

Admittedly, this really does read like a horoscope for all involved - oooh, you're smart, yet conflicted about things... you have feelings, yet you move between them... next we'll find out you sleep, eat, poop, and pee.

But still fun.

I guess.

MB's profile:

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

That about confirms MB's almost split personality!

I was a perfect 50-50 split:

"Graham, 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. . ."

Very interesting test.

Okay... you know how THEY say that when it comes to sex, men are more visual? Well, that thar' Brain Usage Meter sez what I myself have always said: when it comes to sez, you can call me Sam.

My Brain Usage Profile
Auditory : 35%
Visual : 64%
Left : 52%
Right : 47%

I love so much what the Summary sez that I am going to post it at filo... for all the world to see! *~{;-)
