About This Quiz
Which side of your brain dominates your world? This quiz will help you navigate your own brain to find out if you are more left-brained or right-brained. Through finding out about you and your tastes, we'll be able to give you an accurate assessment of the way you think! Depending on which side of the brain you live by, your tendencies to daydream or to over-analyze will come in handy!
You might be the creative free spirit or you might be prone to analyzing everything on the menu. All of it depends on the side of your brain that you use the most. It's not quite the same as being right-handed or left-handed. In fact, the hand you write with has little bearing on which side of your brain runs your world. If you are naturally right-brained, you probably march to the beat of your own drum. If you are left-brained, you are probably a STEM scholar! It all depends on the way you answer.
Put your thinking cap on, and choose the response that feels most natural to you. Learning which side of your brain you use can work to your advantage in life. First, you need to find out!
