Split Personality

I'm pretty much a split-personality!  Yep; it's true.  I think it's because I am left-handed, but do most everything right handed.  This is the life of most left-handed people; we must figure out how to survive in a right-handed world.  I write and eat with my left hand, but I do most sports and other activities right-handed because those that taught me to throw a ball, bowl, cut with scissors, etc... were right-handed. You can see how this would cause a gal to get confused.  Anyway, you can go HERE to check out the test.

Some of the info is surprisingly accurate, but I'll leave you to figure out what particular parts of this report describe me.

Here's the report: 

Gena, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant and show a preference for visual learning, although not extreme in either characteristic. You probably tend to do most things in moderation, but not always.

Your left-hemisphere dominance implies that your learning style is organized and structured, detail oriented and logical. Your visual preference, though, has you seeking stimulation and multiple data. Such an outlook can overwhelm structure and logic and create an almost continuous state of uncertainty and agitation. You may well suffer a feeling of continually trying to "catch up" with yourself.

Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor. You can "size up" situations and take in information rapidly. However, you must then subject that data to being classified and organized which causes you to "lose touch" with the immediacy of the problem.

Your logical and methodical nature hamper you in this regard though in the long run it may work to your advantage since you "learn from experience" and can go through the process more rapidly on subsequent occasions.

You remain predominantly functional in your orientation and practical. Abstraction and theory are secondary to application. In keeping with this, you focus on details until they manifest themselves in a unique pattern and only then work with the "larger whole."

With regards to your career choices, you have a mentality that would be good as a scientist, coach, athlete, design consultant, or an engineering technician. You can "see where you want to go" and even be able to "tell yourself," but find that you are "fighting yourself" at the darndest times.

I took the quiz and got the same exact summary that you did-- I guess great minds think alike =)

That's funny about being a lefty who was taught to be a righty. My mom is the same way.

Our two youngest are clearly left-handed, and we are letting them go for it! Should be interesting to see. (Although, I should admit we make Sam use the computer mouse with his right hand, saves a lot of confusion =)

Very interesting. You and I share some similar traits, but I'm described as a "big picture" kind of person too.

Thanks for the fun laugh Eli and I had (regarding our differences!).
