Aha, so that explains it







Take this test!


That means you are able to draw on the strengths of both the right and left hemispheres of your brain, depending upon a given situation.


When you need to explain a complicated process to someone, or plan a detailed vacation, the left hemisphere of your brain, which is responsible for your ability to solve problems logically, might kick in. But if you were critiquing an art opening or coming up with an original way to file papers, the right side of your brain, which is responsible for noticing subtle details in things, might take over.


While many people have clearly dominant left- or right-brained tendencies, you are able to draw on skills from both hemispheres of your brain. This rare combination makes you a very creative and flexible thinker.


The down side to being balanced-brained is that you may sometimes feel paralyzed by indecision when the two hemispheres of your brain are competing to solve a problem in their own unique ways.

Ayup.

I like 'unique'. That's a kind-hearted way to put it.

Right brained here, btw, with a cat and a candle one one's homepage, the following cautionary tail may be of interest.
"The Click actress revealed her feline friend Clive accidentally brushed past a candle causing his tail to ignite as she was getting ready...."

Oh don't worry -- I live with two semi-longhairs with major tails, and every time there's a power failure I sit in the lounge room with enough candles to read easily by and blow them all out whenever I leave the room. Otherwise the house would be on fire before you could say Tortoiseshell Catherine Wheel. And with all these books in it, too.

I also got a 'balanced' brain result- wonder if it's an arts-related thing..

Thanks for posting that, it is helpful to know a possible reason for being constantly paralysed with indecision!
