It’s Official…I’m a Paradox

Yesterday, I had a plan. Really. I did. Until I visited Lynda Schab’s blog, On the Write Track.

My plan, went downhill after that. She was talking about this brain test she took. No harm or poking involved.

Naturally, as I read, my interest was piqued. And then she did the unthinkable…

She posted the link to the test and gave me permission to take it.

There went laundry, revising, working on a crit for a friend, researching books for the bookclub, and the treadmill. Because after I took the test, I had to blog about it. Like Lynda did. Go check hers out. It was fun and entertaining.

Here are my results. I was shocked at how accurate the answers were.

“Jessica, you show a slight right-hemisphere dominance with a moderate preference for auditory processing, an unusual and somewhat paradoxical combination of characteristics.”
What a way to start off.  I’m not only unusual, well duh, I’m a paradox of sorts. Nice.

Oh yeah, a reasonable degree of success. That’s…comforting. “Don’t you want to be successful?” Sure, I mean to a reasonable degree. Oy!

“You are drawn to a random and sometimes nonchalant synthesis of material. You learn as it seems important to a specific situation, and might even develop a resentment of others who attempt to direct your learning down a specific channel.”
Seriously! I just got out of my mouth a couple days ago. “Ugh, I wouldn’t want to go back to school to save my life. I love studying, but I don’t want anyone telling me what I have to study. I study what I want.” And, I am drawn to random and nonchalant material. I’m often told, “How do you know that?” “You have more useless knowledge than anyone I know.” Yeah, I’m proud of that! I studied for that! 
 “Your right-hemispheric dominance provides a structure that is only loosely organized and one which processes entire swatches of reality, overlooking details. You are emotional in your reactions and perceptual more than logical in your approach, although you can impose structure and a language base when necessary.” *I did not highlight this for any specific reason, but I couldn’t get blogger to make it white! What’s up with that?
That’s pretty much true. Probably why I’m more of a pantser than a plotter, although I do plot when necessary. See!

“Your tendency to be creative and free-flowing is accompanied by sufficient ability to organize and be logical, allowing you a reasonable degree of success in a number of different endeavors. You take in information methodically and systematically which can then be synthesized rapidly. In this manner, you manage to function consistently well, although certainly less efficiently than you desire.”

“You prefer the abstract and are a theoretician at heart while retaining the ability to be practical. You find the symbolism in a great deal of what you encounter and are something of a “mystic.””
Nailed it! I do find symbolism in everything, because everything is a physical picture of something spiritual! Mystic, L.O.L. But spiritual, definitely.

Okay, now I give you permission to take the test and come back with your answers! After you take the test and it gives you the %’s, click on view summary to get the detailed rundown!

  1. Well…I suppose it's not wise to do this brain test at 3am when I am falling asleep! LOL We shall attempt the brain test tomorrow..when I am not brain dead! 😉

  2. Oh no….it is impossible for me to resist these types of things!

  3. I'm with Katie…about to click over. I eat this stuff up.

    Pretty sure I've taken the MB test 3 times.

  4. Ooh, totally going to take that test! Your analysis of your results was hilarious! Fun. Stuff. 🙂

  5. Interesting.

    I was never a good test-taker.
    I'll have to think, yes think from which ever hemisphere is working this morning…about it.

    Fun post!

  6. Creative and free-flowing. That is exactly how I picture you! 😉 Man, I wonder what I am…let's find out! I'll be back…

  7. Okay, I'm "a well rounded person" with a 50/50 split between right and left. Although they did say I was too critical of myself and others. What!

    Fun test Jess! Have a great weekend!

  8. Okay, I'm going to go take it. Is it hard?

  9. Okay, so I took the test. I'm a "rare individual who is perfectly balanced in both your hemispheric tendencies and your sensory learning preferences…"

    I always knew I was rare haha! 🙂

    I can't believe this test. It's so true. It says that I will organize something and then feel the need to reorganize it again in 5-10 wks later. How does it know that???

  10. Okay. You sucked me in. I took the test. It told me that I'm decisive, which is laughable, but it also said I'm a visual learner, which is 100% true. I love tests like that. They're lots of fun!

  11. I think I'm right-brained, but it'll be fun to see what the test says. Might have hubby take it, too 🙂 Have fun this weekend!
