Are you rational and like to live by the rules? Or creative and curious? Now there's a quiz that will determine why this might be. The idea is that we all have a dominant side of the brain - and this shapes our personality.
People who are right-brained tend to be creative, curious and intuitive, while those ruled by the left are logical, strategic and rational.
The quiz determine whether you're right-brained or left brained - and explains what this says about your personality
The quiz, created by the website Sommer + Sommer, involves determining which way a figure is dancing, picking an object that looks most pleasing to the eye and which shape most represents friendship. Later, participants are asked to cross their arms, legs and squint - and see how side of the body reacts.
The idea comes from the idea that certain bodily functions are assigned to either the right or left side of the brain. The brain's right hemisphere controls the muscles on the left side of the body, while the left hemisphere controls the muscles on the right side of the body. In general, the left hemisphere is dominant in language: processing what you hear and handling most of the duties of speaking.
Questions include determining which way the dancer is turning. The idea comes from the idea that certain bodily functions are assigned to either the right or left side of the brain Another question involves pressing a colour, with a word trick added in for confusion. The brain's right hemisphere controls the muscles on the left side of the body, while the left hemisphere controls the muscles on the right side of the body. It's also in charge of carrying out logic and exact mathematical computations. When you need to retrieve a fact, your left brain pulls it from your memory.
The right hemisphere is mainly in charge of spatial abilities, face recognition and processing music. It performs some maths, but only rough estimations and comparisons.
The brain's right side also helps us to comprehend visual imagery and make sense of what we see. It plays a role in language, particularly in interpreting context and a person's tone.
However some critics say there is no such thing - and the notion that our brain has a dominant side that governs out traits – what we are interested in, what are skills tend to be - is nonsense. Shapes are also used to determine aspects of personality.
