Left Brain-Right Brain: where are you?

April 10, 2018

We spoke about Multipotentialite people and I think it's time to go back and think about. If you don't know what a left or right thinker is, I suggest answer questions below. 

 

1. Do you focus more on tune or lyrics when you listen to music?

A. Lyrics, obviously. (Question 2)

B. The tune, of course! (Question 3)

 

2. Do you often forget people's names?

A. Yes (Question 5)

B. Rarely (Question 4)

 

3. Are you often late?

A. Rarely (Question 4)

B. Frequently (Question 6)

 

4. How do you make difficult decisions?

A. Pro and Con list (Question 5)

B. I go with my gut (Question 6)

 

5. Which is more convincing: facts and figures or case studies?

A. Facts (Question 8)

B. Stories (Question 7)

 

6. Rules are created: 

A. For a reason! (Question 7)

B. To be bent (Question 9)

 

7. How do you complete tasks?

A. By order of importance (Question 8)

B. I just get them done (Question 9)

 

8. Are you detail-oriented?

A. Very much so (Read: You are mostly Left-Brained)

B. Occasionally, but not all the time (Read: You're somewhere in between)

 

9. How do you make sense of complicated concepts?

A. Reading (Read: You're somewhere in between)

B. Visuals. (Read: You are mostly Right-Brained)

 

 

You are mostly Left-Brained

You tend to be focused on facts, logic, and analysis. You think primarily in words, which may mean you struggle more with creative tasks.

 

Your secret weapons: 

  • logic

  • sequencing

  • linear thinking

  • mathematics

  • facts

  • thinking in words

You're somewhere in between

You don't have a strong dominant side. You may switch back and forth between logic and creativity, or it may just depend on the task at hand. 

 

Your secret weapons:

Since you are in the middle, you are probably a Multipotentialite
