1. I'm surprised you didn't pop out right in the middle like me, Z. I had the same reaction to many of the questions. Although...I think that was the point.

2. My son took the test, and I noticed he had a couple different questions than I had.....

One he had that I didn't, I thought was neat:

find the best match to the relationship between I:M
A) U:R
B) 1:1,000
C) Us:Them

I picked A (when standing behind him) He picked B.

I don't know why I am bringing it up.....

I thought that question was interesting, as well as other letter matches. I picked B,too, I am quite mathematical in thinking, so the roman numeral equivalents were the first thing I thought would match. Only afterwards I noticed "I am" and "you are" sounds matched (they just made no sense to me at first, I am not very auditory at all).

4. yeah, my son is a math guy too

Auditory : 40%
Visual : 60%
Left : 61%
Right : 38%

I got the same summary as cali.

6. we're so damn cool

awwww Paulie, you know already I think you are hot.

8. Interesting test.... Guess I use both parts of my brain equally...
hehe

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.

9. This was WAY off. I'm extremely anal and organized, although I am also open-minded. I don't understand how they could have drawn this conclusion from my answers...

Anna, you show a slight right-hemisphere dominance with a moderate preference for auditory processing, an unusual and somewhat paradoxical combination of characteristics.

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.

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.

Your auditory preference, on the other hand, implies that you process information sequentially and unidimensionally. This combination of right-brain and auditory modes creates conflict, as you want to process data more rapidly than your natural processes allow.

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."

With regards to your lifestyle, you have the mentality which would be good as a philosopher, writer, journalist, or instructor, or possibly as a systems designer or social worker. Perhaps most important is your ability to "listen to your inner voice" as a mode of skipping over unnecessary steps to achieve your goals.

Ew. This is way off. While getting my PhD I took an education class and we did tons of learning style inventories, teaching styles, personality profiles like Myers-Briggs, etc... I'm very visually inclined, highly organized, scientific, etc... I can't remember things I just hear, but I remember photographically things I see and read. Hummmmm.
