I am a sucker for pop-psych quizzes. I’ll even take those called “What is the first letter of the name of man you will marry” just for the hell of it. However, I found one unlike any I had ever seen before. It is a right-brain vs left brain quiz, and according to the quiz results–I am definitely right-brained. I remember coming across a saying something like “If the left side of the body is controlled by the right brain, then left handed people are the only ones in their right mind.” I am not left-handed, but I have always wanted to be left handed. I can write with my left hand (slowly, but legibly), I have always eaten with my left hand, and I sometimes brush my teeth with my left hand…you know, it case I break an arm or something.
As a right-brained individual, I should consider careers as a forest ranger, athlete, beautician, actor/actress, craftsman, or artist. Nowhere does it say anything about me being a physician or pilot which are two of my goals in life. Although it may explain some of my hobbies: photography, fencing, swimming, hiking, and my goals of competing in a triathlon and buying an old house and restoring it (as much as possible) on my own.
I also am an expert procrastinator. Instead of doing these pop-psych quizzes, I should be studying instead of goofing off on the computer–which is what I am going to do. In just a few minutes. I promise. I have promised myself that if I do well on this next test, I can go see Harry Potter in the theater on Tuesday. If not, I’ll have to wait until it comes out on video.
