What Side Of The Brain Are You?

This is just a fun little quiz and since I have been thinking quite a bit lately about thoughts and the brain after reading Who Switched Off My Brain by Dr. Caroline Leaf, I decided to post this just for fun.  Actually, we use both sides of our brains all the time.  Here is a quote from p. 17 I'd like to share with you that surprised me:
The brain builds a double memory of the content of every thought, one on the left side of the brain and one on the right . . . both sides of the brain take part in every activity, just from different perspectives.
The quiz said this about me:
You Are the Left Side of the Brain






You are a logical and orderly person. You have a system for almost everything in your life. (This is absolutely true about me.  I have a system for everything and a place for everything. 

You like to stay busy, and it's important that you stay on task. You prefer to do one thing at a time.  (I do like being busy--I thrive on having a project of some sort going.  I generally do only one big project at a time; however, I multi-task on small things.

You are rational and detail oriented. You love to analyze, and you have a head for numbers.  (I hope I'm rational!  I know I am detail oriented.  Sometimes I make myself nuts analyzing every little thing and thinking through every detail.  I do take care of balancing the checkbook and paying our bills.)

You are also good with words. You love to read, and you've been known to write well.  (I feel I am better at writing than speaking, guess that's why I enjoy blogging so much.  I do like to read now although that wasn't always the case.  I think just because I'm older now, I sit around more so have the time for it.  I really never read for pleasure until after I married Gerard.

You and I came out the same. Again.

Have a terrific day. :)

I am the Left Side. That definitely fits me.
Thanks for visiting my blog last week, please come again! You have a fun blog here, I'll be back!

I think I'm a combo but mostly I'm a right side.
That was fun...I know my hubs is a left side.
I guess together we're a complete brain : )

Thanks for taking the little quiz everyone.

Sandee: Guess we are a lot alike!

Donna: Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back to visit you too.

Joyce: It's good when husband and wives mesh and have different strengths and weaknesses.

I am sooooo RIGHT Brain!!! I wish I was left brain about two days a week, when it is time to clean house and time to pay bills/buy groceries! Maybe then, I could get organized. LOL

Thanks for planning to post on Friday about World Kindness Day. I'll try to write something creative and post late Thursday night if you are linking back to me. The boys and I have been making plans as to what we want to do Friday/Saturday to embrace being kind. Sometimes, it is difficult to share plans or what we've done, without seeming to pat yourself on the back, ya know? On the other hand, I would like to encourage others and share ideas.

Blessings,
Cheryl

My human got right side of the brain, which is spot on - if you saw her desk, you would know she is not orderly! I took the test too (although I had to guess at the toothpaste question), and I also got right-brained, even though I answered a couple questions differently from my human (she likes math and I don't)!

That was fun!
