Your Score

Note: If this form doesn't work with your browser,
calculate your score by giving yourself 3 points for every "yes" answer; 1 point for every "sometimes" answer; and no points for every "no" answer.

It means...
0-100 You're dominated by the left brain, which makes you the scientist. The degree in which you're dominated by the scientific brain depends on your score. The lower your score is, the more dominate this side of the brain is.
In general, however, you're better at numbers and objective data than with spelling or creative endeavors. And instead of seeing the big picture, you see things in their component parts down to the intricate details.

Because you're great at analyzing situations and solving problems, especially in terms of numbers or data, you'd be best in a career involving, mathematics, business, natural science, engineering, etc.

The abilities you possess to calculate, conceive and plan has been instrumental in humanity's survival.
110 to 149 Neither your left brain nor your right brain are dominate. With few exceptions, you use both sides equally and have ability in both. In many ways, you have the best of both worlds, because you don't see things from a narrow viewpoint, you're even tempered, balanced, and you have a good head on your shoulders.
150 to 250 You're dominated by your right brain, which makes you the artist. The degree in which you're dominated by the artistic brain depends on your score. The higher your score is, the more dominate this side of the brain is.

Not only are you highly creative, but you're also very emotional with a tendency toward sadness and despair. You have great spatial ability and are good at recognizing patterns. You would be at your best in a creative field such as graphical art, creative writing, poetry, music, drama, photography, etc.

Though the left brain has given man the means of survival, the abilities you possess to create and inspire has given humanity a reason to survive.
