Balanced Mind

Yes, that's right folks, I have a balanced mind!

Lisa over at The Preachers Wife blog shared the brain test she recently took and... well I just had to take it too! The results were that I have a nearly 50/50 balanced brain. I was relieved to see the results because when the first question appeared, I raised an eyebrow and said.. "what the heck is that?"

I thought a balanced brain must be good, right?!

"Your hemispheric dominance is equally divided between left and right brain, while you show a moderate preference for auditory versus visual learning, signs of a balanced and flexible person.

Your balance gives you the enviable capacity to be verbal and literate while retaining a certain "flair" and individuality. You are logical and compliant but only to a degree. You are organized without being compulsive, goal-directed without being driven, and a "thinking" individual without being excessively so."

(Yeah, I didn't understand any of that either... lol)

Hmm, then I read on...

"The one problem you might have is that your learning might not be as efficient as you would like. At times you will work from the specific to the general, while at other times you'll work from the general to the specific. Sometimes you will be logical in your approach, while at other times random. Since you cannot always control the choice, you may experience frustrations not normally felt by persons with a more defined and directed learning style."
(Yea ya think!)

"You may also minimally experience conflicts associated with auditory processing. You will be systematic and sequential in your processing of information, you will most often focus on a single dimension of the problem or material, and you will be more reflective, i.e., "taking the data in" as opposed to "devouring" it."
(It's all these years of government work)

"Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are, perhaps, a little too critical of yourself - and of others - while maintaining an "openness" which is redeeming. Indecisiveness is a problem and your creativity is not in keeping with your potential. Being a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more immediate, the more obvious and the more functional."

Okay, that last paragraph I can totally agree with! Yep, that's it! I'm a well of talent that has barely been tapped into yet! (My friends are rolling their eyes right now!) But let's cut to the chase... until my two little people are raised up adults fulfilling God's plan for their life, my own creative desires will remain on the back-burner. And right now, creative desires don't pay $$$, so tomorrow it's back to work I go.

Well, I also have the gift of discernment and after all this fun, I know you want to take the test too! So here ya go.... Brainworks Test

Come back and share how you scored!

These quizes are a lot of fun. I already know my brain is unbalanced - a little to the left - which makes juggling the multiple tasks a challenge!
