Left vs Right Brain Test

I just took an online test to determine which side of the brain you favor, right or left. Here are my results:

Right Brain/ Left Brain Quiz

The higher of these two numbers below indicates which side of your brain has dominance in your life. Realising your right brain/left brain tendency will help you interact with and to understand others.

Left Brain Dominance: Left Brain Dominance 5/10
Right Brain Dominance: Right Brain Dominance 5/10

What does this mean? Here’s the breakdown:

  • Responds to verbal instructions
  • Problem solves by logically and sequentially looking at the parts of things
  • Looks at differences
  • Is planned and structured
  • Prefers established, certain information
  • Prefers talking and writing
  • Prefers multiple choice tests
  • Controls feelings
  • Prefers ranked authority structures


  • Is a splitter: distinction important
  • Is logical, sees cause and effect

Right Hemisphere Style

Draws on unbounded qualitative patterns that are not organized into sequences, but that cluster around images


  • Responds to demonstrated instructions
  • Problem solves with hunches, looking for patterns and configurations
  • Looks at similarities
  • Is fluid and spontaneous

  • Prefers drawing and manipulating objects
  • Prefers open ended questions
