About This Quiz

Most of us know the theory of left brain vs. right brain, in other words, that one side of our brain is more dominant than the other. If you are left-brained then you are analytical and methodical, and if you're right-brained you tend to be creative and artistic. So if you're a CEO of a business, you're probably left-brained, and if you're making a living as an artist then you're right-brained. Some of the things that left-brained people are known for are being logical and doing things in an orderly fashion, while people who are right-brained are thought of as those who daydream, use their imagination and their intuition. If you spend a lot of time thinking about your retirement plan even when you're in your 20s you're totally left-brained, and if you're happy in your 20s that you have enough money to pay the rent and go out and get hammered on Saturday night, then you're right-brained.

What about you? Does your left brain tell you what to do and make sure that you make all the right decisions and stay on the straight and narrow? Or is it your right brain that rules you, making sure you have a good time and stay true to yourself? Or maybe you're somewhere in between? Take this quiz to find out.
