Are You Right-Brained or Left-Brained?

Advertisement

Your brain has two hemispheres that control separate processes and personality traits. If you are an analytical and methodical thinker, then it is likely that your left brain hemisphere is dominant. People with dominant left hemispheres are usually fact- and detail-orientated. Does that sound like you? If it doesn't, perhaps you are right-brained. Those with dominant right hemispheres are usually more creative, artistic, and free-thinking. Right-brained people also tend to look at the bigger picture and listen to their intuition more. If you're reading this and thinking you can identify with both right-brained and left-brained characteristics, maybe you fall somewhere in the middle. Some people find that they have an equal balance of all of these traits, which might mean the right and left sides of their brain share in the heavy lifting. Take this quiz to discover which side of your brain you really use the most. You might be surprised! Then, send this quiz to your friends and family and find out who thinks like you!

Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

How Much Does The Human Brain Weigh?

The brain might seem like a relatively small part of the body, but in adults, it weighs around 3.3 pounds! For the average person, that means the brain takes up approximately two percent of your total body weight, which is quite a lot when you think about it. The majority of that is water — about 1300 milliliters worth. The rest is protein, fat, sugar, and salt. To put this weight into perspective, a regular bag of sugar weighs around 2.2 pounds, your heart weighs just 0.75 pounds, and both your lungs put together weigh only 2.9 pounds. It's a wonder we humans can keep our heads upright! However, your brain hasn't always been so heavy. Newborn brains weigh just 0.8 pounds, the same as half a liter of milk, but by the time that baby is a teenager, their brain will have reached its full size and weight!

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
