Brains Reflection

After completing the brain tests, what are you thinking about brains? What are you thinking about your own learning? How does all of this relate to education, to you personally, and to the world? Make sure to explain your test results.

  1. Brains are complicated. After completing these tests, I am more confused about how the brain even works, and about how these tests can determine what type of brain I have. This makes me think about how much the brain helps us when it comes to learning. This relates to education because we just learned about the brain. This relates to me personally because I found my results about what type of brain I have. This relates to the world because my type of brain might be the same as many other people. On the first test, I ended up with 46% left brain, and 54% right brain. On the second test, my results stated that I was a guardian inspector.

  2. On the first test it told me I am 51% creative (right side) and I agree with that because I feel with certain things I am more prone to look for all possibilities no matter how crazy it may seem, but on other things I feel as if I can not be open to new ideas. On the second test it told me I was a person to do the normal dull everyday jobs but I feel like that is not me. I feel like I can do jobs that require a honing of the talents required to do them.

  3. After completing the two brains tests, I have much more to now think about brains. I think brains have a very large effect on the way students learn. Based on the results on the that I got, I feel I am a very organized person and learn very visually. These tests relate to my learning because it describes the way I learn. I like to remain organized and learn very visually. I think very practically but still have a kind heart. The results show that I am very outgoing and care about other people in my community and the world.

  4. Brains are very hard to understand and have unlimited amounts of information that is hard to track. I learned that I am really close in my right and left brain work. In the first test I scored a 50% on my left brain and a 51% on my right brain. The tests actually did reflect me at the moment saying I would be a good athlete and good in creative things. This helps me so that I know how I should be learning things because of the way my brain works. In my second test I was a Artisan Performer, which means I perform well and for me that's in school and sports.

  5. After completing my brain tests, I was surprised to see my results. I felt that it did follow my personality and described me well. I am thinking that our brains all make us unique. They help us to perceive situations. I am thinking that the quizzes help to explain why I have issues in some subjects. One of my tests told me I have issues with math because I want to understand why the problems are done that way. I think that our brains can help and hurt us in our education. This relates to education because I feel that students' separate learning types are not catered to in school systems. It would be helpful if people who had similar personalities could have a choice to learn together to make a more functional classroom. Personally, I feel that I have found places in my brain that I can work on to make my learning more thorough. In the world, I think the tests show how diverse our world is. Without all the different thinkers in the world, we would not have certain professions. All the different types of people make our society great. On my first test, my right brain had 55% and my left brain had 45% of usage. On my second test, I was categorized as a Idealist Healer.

  6. On the first test I was deemed a right-brained person because I am able to express myself through art such as dance and music and think through things creatively. I was not really surprised by the results of this test because I learn things best when I can see them in a more creative way such as through music, movies, or pictures and I express myself through gymnastics. This relates to my education because I learn things better when I am doing things and not just taking notes and reading.

    On the second test I was named an Idealistic Teacher. I was not really surprised by this because I have been told I should be a teacher because I am able to explain things relatively easily and I strive to create the best version of myself possible. This relates to my education because I am really good at explaining things (especially Math and Science) to other people in ways that they understand and that enhances my knowledge as well.

  7. On the first test it said I was 53% left brained. I believe that this is true because I'm not a very metaphorical person. I believe there is one answer for every question and one answer only. I believe in what I see not what I can imagine. I always get to the point. I don't try to say something through metaphors. I will outright tell you what I want to. I learn better in a small group and I have to be focused. There can't be any distractions.

  8. After completing the brain tests, it really makes me think about how many different types of brains and different people there are in our society. It makes me think about my own learning, it helps me to understand that different people have different learning styles and different understandings. The fact that there are different types of brains effects education and society and the world as a whole. It affects me personally because I am 36% left brained and 64% right brained, and an idealist champion, meaning that I am more so rooted emotionally over logically. The fact that everyone is unique in their way of thinking and understanding shows us that the world and education really need to focus on the individual, because everyone truly is different

  9. The brain test has made an accurate result in what I think my brain consists of. I have learned so much about how diverse each person from another is. My own learning does not show what the tests were saying. It says that I take leadership and I do not believe that I do. I have not applied enough of my brain with my learning and am hoping to change that. My test results explain that I solve problems in a way that is from point A to point B. I do believe that I am built that way. Also, the other test explained me as a Rational Mastermind. This explains that I also work hard and diligently to my final goal. The mastermind half of my results accurately state my way of solving problems sometimes. The results state that I am a leader, and provide the leader role in most projects when needed. I have been surprised by some results, but others I have identified myself as that already.

  11. The brain is one of the most complicated organs, and unlike any other organ, the capability of one's brain differs from one individual to another. However, I feel as if it is not the complexity of the brain that determines one's intelligence, but the way that individual chooses to use their brain. The brain is a big factor in education because education help teach an individual which method(s) work best with their brain and help the student learn problem solving techniques which would then help them grow as a student and as an individual. My test results show that I am a guardian inspector and am 50% left brained and 51% right brain. Although those numbers do not add up to 100%, it showed that I use both sides of my brain almost completely equally, which to me, is more efficient then being very dominant with only one side of the brain.

  12. After completing the brains test, I realized that brains are much more complicated than I thought they were. I also found out that I do not know my brain as well as I thought I did. I think that I have not been learning as well as I could have been because I do not even know my own brain. I always thought that I had a more logical brain but it turns out that it is really more creative. My test results were 48% left brain and 52% right brain. I am also an idealist counselor. I think this relates to education by everyone's brain learns differently and in order to get the most out of an education, they have to learn how their brain works. I think it relates to me by it will help me figure out who I am and possibly help me figure out my future career. I think it relates to the world by if everyone found out what type of brain they have, it can help them create their future and a better world.

  13. This made me think about how different people's brains work differently and make them think and react to situations. I think that there are different ways in which I could learn better in the classroom. The brain is a complex and confusing, yet important part of our body. It is hard to fit people into a certain category and tell them what their personality is like. I am right brained and an idealistic champion. This means I am creative and very personable. This also tells me that in my education I find it easier to work in groups. When it is time for me to enter the work force I have to show my boss my strengths as an individual and how I stand out using my personality traits and my ability to help others.

  14. These tests really made me more interested in brains. After completing the two tests I was not at all shocked at my results. In the first test showed what kind of brain type I was, or prominently used. My results were 38% left brained and 72% right brained. I expected this answer as I see myself succeeding more in the arts and creative outlets then I do in academic places. This relates to my learning because I know I have to look at things from a different point of view for me to understand what is going on. The second test told me I was a "Idealist Champion" which means that I am more emotional then I am logical. This also didn't shock me because I see that in myself very often. These results relate to the world because it shows how not all people act the same, learn the same, or think the same and that our world needs to adopt more ways to make things easier for different people.

  16. The human mind is unlimited. The way every individual's brain works is different, resulting in a plethora of unique people. Different people contribute to the world in different ways, and I believe there is a place for everyone to share their ideas and embrace their state of mind. After completing the two activities, I think that no one can really see what your brain is made up of. In relationship to learning, I think that different qualities can support different types of learning, benefiting the individual based on the track and information. One computerized test does not accurately process the way you think. My results showed that I was 51% left brain and 49% right brain, and also a performer. No tests or questions can take a look inside yourself; the way other people classify you based on how you appear may not be the way you see yourself.

  17. According to my first test results, I am balanced between left brain and right brain. The results of my first test were 50% left brain and 51% right brain. I suppose I learn rather quickly and that skill helps me to adjust to my environment and those around me. I didn't agree with the results of the second test. Many of the questions were hard to answer because I was somewhere in between. I ended up with Guardian Protector- a personality type likely to work in security. Looking at both test results, I've decided brains are very complex systems that have to work together. However, our present education systems do not advocate right-brain thinking, suppressing creativity. As we have been reading in "A Whole New Mind" by Daniel Pink, both of our spheres need work together to problem solve and to interact with others. My fear is that society will continue to suppress their right-brain and the world will no longer be personal or require human thought.

  18. Once I took both of the brains quizzes, I thought that brains were an interesting thing. The results I got were not exactly what I expected them to be, but I suppose that I can’t judge. When I took the first brains test, I got 48% left brain and 52% right brained. I was sort of surprised by these results, as I did not expect it to be so evened out. I guess that the way I learn is more in between, as I thought it would end up more one sided. For the second quiz, I got idealist healer, which I was not at all expecting. When it came up as a result, though, I was pleasantly surprised. It had never occurred to me that I could be an idealist, but once I read the description, I realized how much it related to myself as well as my learning. An idealist is someone whose desire for self improvement drives their imagination, which is, as I believe, a relatively good description of me. I also believe that the healer was fitting as well. These quizzes fit my personality well, in my opinion, and it therefore fit my view of the world around me.

  19. After completing the Brains tests, I learned that I am 54% right brain and 46% left brain. These results I think did reflect me pretty well. The second test said that I was a Guardian and it said they use their skills to keep thing such as hospitals and families running smoothly. I would probably agree with my results.

  20. After completing the brain tests I am amazed and interested in the results. It's amazing how a simple test can show results and determine what side of your brain is used the most. I was right brained, which means am a "creative thinker." This means that I tend to use feeling to make decisions as opposed to facts. I agree with the results. This test made me realize that each person learns differently, and different styles of teaching work better/worse for others. With about 30 students in a class, not everybody learns the same. Making it difficult to find a teaching style that works for everyone. This idea is also much larger scale than the classroom. Not everybody you work with or meet will have the same learning type or personality as you but you still have to have the ability to work with everyone. To be able to work well in a class environment you have to understand that not everyone has the same thought process as you, and it has to be accepted.

  21. A brain is much more complex than society often realizes. I think the brain tests show how diverse each brain is, and it provides an awakening to how each person in this room is very different. I think the results I got were fairly accurate when compared with my learning, because I do know I am more left brained than right because I tend to be more logical in education and prefer more straightforward subjects. In addition, the tests showed that I have a higher level of linear thinking. Also, the fact that I love to have fun but know when I need to be serious relates a lot to my life in the form of running. The personality test showed that my personality type, Guardian Provider, makes up 40-45 percent of the population, and while I was surprised to see this I believe that the world depends on us, just the same as it depends on the rarer personality types.

  22. After completing the two tests it is apparent to me that the brain is a very complicated organ. Such as whether a person is a right-brained thinker or a left-brain thinker. Or if a person is prone to imagination or prone to critical thinking. What I am thinking about learning is if someone is in an honors class they want to learn they feel the need to challenge their brain and feed it more and more knowledge. How this relates is if a person is more likely to think with their left-brain, such as myself, is what the world needs to have. It needs a good mix of both so that not everyone is extremely logical and not everyone is so in touch with their feelings. This also makes for a good class room because is everyone was logical there would be no debate over any subject and the same way with the people that are more in touch with their feelings. My results show that I stick to logical and am almost cold to other people and their feelings.

  23. During the brain report on the websites, "Where Creativity Goes to School" ,and "Keirsy", my mind set is primarily left brained. I tend to be more analytical and find projects without rules or deadlines being an anussiance. In the results, I am 65% left brained and 35% right brained. This personally impacts my learning style, by scientifically proving that I learn more effectively by not using visual teaching methods. I have always known that creativity is not my stronger suit and I have little artistic capabilities. Instead in the future, I should direct my career into a more logical and less creative field, and focus more on learning through non fiction pieces of work.

  24. After taking the test it was reported that I am more dominant on the right side of the brain than the left side, but not by much. The results stated that on the right side of the brain I am 53% right-brained, and 47% left-brained. On the left side of my brain is most dominant in being symbolic which means that I excel in tasks such as mathematics, and memorizing vocabulary words and mathematical formulas. My least dominant trait is verbal meaning that if I were to give examples I would use visual structures than things such as street names. The dominant characteristic on the right side of my brain is holistic which states that I can see the big picture first but have problems seeing the details. My least dominant trait on the right side of my brain is non verbal which says I use words instead of illustrations. I find it strange that I could be the least dominant in verbal and nonverbal on both sides of my brain, but it has different meanings. On the Keirsey test I was reported to be a Guardian Protector(ISFJ). I have taken this test once before in my Human Behaviors class and received the exact same results. The results of this test means that I offer a high level of stability and that I am responsible for preserving society's institutions. I agree with all the results.

  25. After completing the brain tests, I have discovered that brains are a very complicated, yet very important piece of my body. I feel that my brain not only controls my physical actions, but my emotions, feelings, thoughts, and personality. Knowing this, I am curious about how the brain works. How does each person gain the mental attributes that make up their brain? As for my education, I would be really interested in learning about brains in a detailed manner. I think it would be really fascinating to do a test researching at what point does the brain start molding that person into who they are in the current day. This would mean comparing this person's actions as a child to how they are as a mature adult. I think this relates to education because in order to efficiently teach kids of different ethnicity, ages, and backgrounds the same topics, teachers themselves must learn about how the brain works. In a way, this is just the common sense that everyone learns differently because no two people are the same; however, the brain is much more complicated then that. I think that in order to get children to try to accept in coming knowledge, multiple surveys need to be done in order to discover their natural learning habits. These tests relate to me personally because they have made me discover that I am actually a creative person and that I do bring a lot to the table. I have always thought of myself as a realistic person rather then a dreamer. I know these tests can be quite irrelevant but they opened my eyes to the fact that I do have a strong imagination. The two tests I just took relate to the world, because although people throughout the world are different, we all have the same type of brain. There are two parts in everyone's head; therefore, we are all connected. My test results displayed that I am 20% more creative then realistic. This means I use the right side of my brain 60% of the time and the left side only 40%.

  26. After taking the two online tests I am even more confused about brains than ever. I expected to be almost all left brain but the first test said that I was more right brained than left brain. The second test said I am a performer. It said I make people happy with my talents in music, drama and comedy. This puzzles me because I am not musical or dramatic and I don't do well in front of crowds. After this I am even more confused about my learning. Should I be learning more math and science or art and English? Is it better to be more left brain or right? Can you learn to be more left or right brained? I think these tests relate to education because they can tell you or your educators how you are best taught. The fact that these tests said I am a right brained performer means nothing to me I am still going to do what I want in the future.

  27. The results from the first test made me realize I am more of a right-brained person. My scores were 44% left-brained, and 56% right-brained. This quiz helped me to realize the difference between the left brain and the right brain. For my own learning, I should start using more visual representations and harness my creativeness. Educators should help their students by realizing their strengths and weaknesses. By using different teaching styles, educators have the ability to engage all their students. On the second brain test, my results said I am an idealist teacher. The results said, " Teachers (ENFJ) are highly motivational and can influence others around them with great ease. They are people-oriented and focused on maintaining high spirits within their group." I can use this information to make further life decisions. If people investigate their personal strengths,and use them, the world would be a better place.

  28. The human brain appears to have a lot of capability for variation and different methods of conceptualization. After reading a portion of Daniel Pink's "A Whole New Mind" and taking the mental classification tests, I have personally gained a fresh appreciation for the complexity of the human brain and the ways in which each is individual and reacts in a unique manner. The implications of recent scientific discoveries about the brain are enormous. Humankind is within reach for the first time of understanding precisely how a person learns, thinks, and functions. This can be applied in government, education, workplaces, and the counseling and enlightenment processes which Pink predicts will become so popular in the "Conceptual Age." My personal results of INFJ indicated that I have a unique way of conceptualizing things and it would be advantageous, as with any personality or brain type, to understand how this works and how it impacts me.

  29. These tests told me little that I had not already deduced. I find that tests like these are incredibly accurate, while also incredibly inaccurate. While, in a linear sense, they are close to perfect, asking the same question multiple times and multiple different ways, they are, in a human sense, inaccurate, because they do not leave room for fluctuation, human desire, or borderline answers. My results in the first test stated that I was (slightly) more right brained. This is wrong, as I know I think and function in a more linear way. I think that brains are developed and malleable. Not only do they form in certain ways as we grow, learn, and experience, but we can change that. I believe in no excuses, and a brain is no exception.

  30. After reading a bit of A Whole New Mind and completing the brain tests online, I have a whole new respect for the things our brain is able to do. I have long believed in the Multiple Intelligence Theory and the unique take every brain has on the world around it, but today's results- and the differences between them- have confirmed my beliefs. In the first test, my results showed that I was slightly more right brained than left. I was honestly surprised by these results. The second test showed that I was ISTJ, or a Inspector Guardian. This is quite interesting to me because I don't seem to match the description of this character at all. It's always nice to know, however, what the world determines you to be so you can blow their expectations away.

  31. After completing the two online tests I have confirmed the results of the test with what I have gotten in the past. I am virtually even with both of my left and right brain. Also in the second test I received "Guardian Supervisor". This really intrigued me because the description for it was spot on. I was amazed that after only a short test a machine could find out so much about you. I was very impressed. The description for ESTJ stated, "loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right". I thought that this was very cool because it is something that I have found to be true throughout my life. I learned a lot from the tests that I performed today and will use the results to better my learning.

  32. Before taking the first quiz I was already well aware that I was a right-brained person. This was proven when my results were 33% left-brained and 67% right-brained. This showed me that I am more of a creative thinker and that I express myself most in the arts. This is very accurate for dance and music are some of my true passions. With this knowledge I will put more effort into excelling in the arts but also working to improve the left side of my brain as well. The second quiz results stated that I was an 'Idealist Champion' (ENFP). That would stand for extroverts, intuitive, feelers, perceivers. I have a high energy level and work in bursts of energy. These results also connected with my first test results, stating that I was right brained. As overall I have found that I am very strong in the arts and creativity I feel as if I will continue through my life allowing both sides of my brain to grow.

  33. Brains are whack and it just goes to show that there is never going to be a perfect education system in which every student is being taught to their specific needs and learning habits. Everyone is different and learns differently and completes tasks differently and a different education is needed for each person in order for each person to be able to be as successful as they can be. I was 50% left-brained and 51% right-brained, so I don't think it is definitive as to whether I am more of a creative or logical thinker. I am an ISTP personality type, which is Introverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving. This is definitely true for me. I prefer to work on my own, I am a realist, I am unsympathetic, I enjoy math and I am more logical than creative. According to Daniel Pink, this probably means that I am not as well suited for the Conceptual Age as the creative thinkers are. It doesn't worry me because I know that I will be able to do something with my life that will be successful. The brain is super complex and I do not know even a fraction of what goes on with it, but I do know that people in this new age have to make a change in the education system that will produce happier and more intelligent people.

  34. After taking the brains test, it is very clear that brains are far more complex than many think them to be. This is really cool to learn and capture through thought from the very brain itself. This relates to education in that we have many different kinds of learners, left brainers, right brainers, yet school systems never cater to all kinds and types of people. Personally, this is cool to me, I enjoy seeing the overall picture and I find this to actually be very informational and helpful to me now and in the future. This is great for the world as well because if we all knew about this, we could have such a better world. So many ways of life, and especially education would we better for everyone. My results showed me that I am 40% left brained and 60% right brained, I'm a "Rational Fieldmarshal". I don't think this is acurate to me because even if that is true about me, I don't perceive myself that way. This helps me in a good way becaue in my head, I want to be a right brained thinker. Additionally, I like that I have a mix of both right and left brained thinking because I believe in balance and having some of everything.

  36. After completing the two brain tests, I am curious as to how the creators of the tests came up with the results. When answering the questions, I felt like my answers could have been different than what someone thinks of me. My results said that I was 47% left brain and 53% right brain and that I was a performer. When reader through the explanations of my results, I was surprised by some of the things it said about me, because I thought the opposite. I don't think anybody can understand a persons brain completely, let alone a test.

  37. After taking these tests, I am thinking about how different every human-beings brain is. Each person has a different brain that thinks differently, one that shows who they are and challenges them to be their best. My results of the first test were 45% Left Brain and 55% Right Brain, and for the second test I am a Guardian Provider (ESFJ). With the first test results, I was sort of confused because once I read the description of what being a Right Brain is, I realized I wouldn't categorize myself as that. With the second test, I thought that the explanation described exactly what I was. A Guardian makes sure to keep things running smoothly, are organized, and do things the teamwork way. Being a Provider means that I am cooperative and enjoy serving the needs of other people. Providers like to make sure that tasks are complete, people are cared for, and organization is key. Being a Guardian Provider from an education and world point of view means that I enjoy working on projects that improve situations and communities for people.

  38. These two tests actually frustrated me. I'm always looking inward to see who I really am, and I know that these questions served to absolutely confound me. Many of the question (on the second test in specific) that pitted two parts of my personality against each other, and made me choose one, no matter how equally is exhibit both. I ended up being an Artisan Performer, which I don't have much desire to perform. I can see where these results are formed, but still, without being able to truly express yourself, these test will never be a hundred percent accurate. Also, the first test said I wasn't very reality based. I base my life around reality, so that was incorrect as well. either way, these tests do serve to help one look inside themselves.

  39. To be honest I think I had figured out a lot of myself on my own. I feel like I don't really have to say my results because people who know me probably have already figured me out. I feel that these tests were pretty understanding of how to differentiate people. I feel like this connects to Education in the way that the current school education system isn't fit to all the different types of personalities and thinkers in the world. In my own thoughts, I feel like school is good for a lot of people, but not for everyone. Kind of like how not every animal can live in every habitat. That's how I feel. The fact that my only option for education is Preschool, Elementary, Middle, and High school then after College doesn't match me. Of course, not just me. There are plenty of other people just like me, I'm sure they have similar points of view as I do. Hopefully, and I bet I can assure myself, that school is going to be more various. For different sorts of learners, but it'll be perfect.

  40. According to the brains test, I use both parts of my brain fairly evenly: 51 percent for the left side of my brain and 49 percent for the right side of my brain. The left side of the brain is more logical and analytical while the right side of my brain is more artistic and creative. These tests show me that brains are incredibly complex and the level of difficulty that it requires to comprehend how the brain functions differently per person is incredibly intriguing to me. Out of all brains, the type of brain that most interests me are the ones of ambidextrous. Are their brains more complex? Are they less complex or more evened out? What does it mean to personality types, composition of or the human itself from these tests? What do the brain's qualities tell of the humans? On the second test, it appeared that I am an Idealist Teacher. This test surprises me because according to the description, an idealist teacher care more about emotions then logical thinking: which is the opposite of the first test. I feel like I care about emotions but I do also care and embellish taking in information like a sponge. For my learning, it is helpful to see that certain techniques are more beneficial but also that every brain, as all are different, how is the community supposed to conform to a similar learning environment if we all think differently? How can that be expected of us? The world, with similar personalities colliding, prove that the brain activity is like a fingerprint per person.

  41. I think now that I have taken the brains test, I understand a whole lot more about myself, and about some of the ideas which Daniel Pink addresses in a whole new mind. The results for my first test showed that I was 67% right brained, and 33% left brained. I already knew that I was more of a creative thinker than I was an analytic thinker, however I did not know that there were so many aspects of the right side of my brain. My results indicated that I am a concrete thinker, which means that I am able to solve problems and think things through better when I have something concrete to work with, like a picture. On the left side of my brain, my results claim I am a logical thinker, which means that when solving problems, I tend to think things through before acting. about 44% of the right side of my brain is "fantasy oriented", 39% is intuitive, 38% is non-verbal, 23% is random, and 12% is holistic. About 34% of my brain's left hemisphere is reality based, 18% is sequential, 7% is verbal, and 6% is linear. I have seen these results reflected in the way I learn and communicate. I like my decisions to be backed up by logic most of the time, and when I answer a question on a test, I make sure to mull it over in my head first before writing down my final answer. I am pleased with the results of my tests and they have helped me understand more about myself and my learning.

  42. On the first test, I got a 40% on my left brain, and a 60% on my right brain. On the second test, it resulted that I am a Guardian Provider. These tests, and other blog posts gave me an idea of how different everyone is, and how different we think and act. This means that for my learning, I am a visual learner and prefer to be creative with projects that do not have many rules and guidelines. I think that educators should realize that there are many different types of students in the world, and should try to teach all of them to their best ability. They could do this by experimenting with different types of teaching techniques to try and engage the students. I think students around the world should push themselves to their best ability by using their own creativity and imagination, and teachers should give their students less guidelines.

  43. Each personality it different and no test can fully evaluate it, but I felt that my results were rather accurate. On the left brain right brain test I was slightly more left brained by a small margin mostly due to my math and evaluation skills. I was also quite right brained which is consistent with my imaginary and artistic abilities. As for the personality test, it also described me very well. The personality test evaluated me as an Idealist Champion. An Idealist Champion strives to experience life to it's fullest and find the best in everything. They also are individualistic and try to be entirely themselves. Both of these attributes I would use to describe myself, and I hope to live up to my own personality.

  44. After taking the brain tests, I am finding that I am even more confused about how the brain works now then before. I know that when we learn, information is stored in our brain and this is how our brain confronts certain tasks. This relates to our education because today as a society we do the majority of our learning at school. Therefore we learn how to act and make decisions for certain circumstances in school. In return that means out dominate side of the brain is determined in school. My test results were mostly left brained (52%-48%) and a Guardian Provider personality. I have always thought that I was more left brained not right brained, but I didn't know I was close to being right brained. As for my personality type I thought the test was correct. Reading the information about Guardian Provider I realized that being extremely sensitive to the feelings of others, crushed by personal criticism, and and are happiest when given ample appreciation both for themselves personally and for the tireless service they give to others, explained me exactly.

  45. Brains are very complex, and although they may be hard to understand, it is clear that they can do amazing things. I do not know how accurate the test results were, but after completing the brain tests, I found out that I was pretty balanced between my right brain and my left brain - 50% Left Brained and 51% Right Brained. (Not sure how the math works there...) I suppose that means I am a pretty well-rounded person. I'm both creative and logical. For the personality test, I ended with the result of Guardian Protector (ISFJ). I believe this is a pretty accurate description of my personality - I am helpful, loyal, hard-working, and dependable. Everyone person has a different personality. All my classmates are different from me. Educators should be aware of this, and make an effort to help students who have a harder time grasping concepts because their thought processes are different. Students should not feel stupid or frustrated just because they have a hard time understanding something. Teachers should try to figure out how to teach each of their students and help them learn the best they can.

  46. After taking these tests I found that brains are very complicated. There are so many different combinations for how people acquire knowledge. For me the test results I received were a 35% left brain and 65% right brained, and an idealist champion. According the the website an idealist champion’s are creative, independent , and outgoing. The results fit my personality quite well. I am creative, Il loving being my own person, and communicating with others. After taking these tests I found it incredible how many different ways there are for people to learn. Having this knowledge as a student in my opinion is very important. It shows you how your brain works, and the best way for an individual to take in information.

  47. After taking these two tests, I am just blown away at how complex the human mind is. On the first test, I was 46% left brained and 54% right brained, with my two most dominant characteristics being symbolic and nonverbal. I completely agree with that, as I learn visually and do well with shapes and geometry. My two lowest characteristics were verbal and holistic. This means I have trouble seeing the whole picture sometimes and that I also am not the best at expressing myself with words. I also have good spatial skills, which I completely agree with.
    The second test placed me as an Artisan Composer, which was odd as I don't think of myself as an artist. Artisans can be impulsive, and they create art (any type) simply because they need to. As the website puts it- "They climb the mountain because it is there." They Keirsey website also reaffirmed the fact that I do not communicate well with words, but use art to express myself.
    When it comes to education, I think these personality types and learning methods should be taken into account because education is not one-size-fits-all. For those that don't learn well in a standard classroom, they can be left behind educationally when in reality they have just as much potential as any other student. I hope that in the future education will be able to help students of all types, not just those who work well in a classroom.

  48. After taking these tests I realized that how we see ourselves is not always how our brains actually work. For the most part I do not think of myself as a right-brainer. The results I got for the tests surprised me. I found out I am 46% left-brained and 54% right-brained. The test on Keirsey revealed that I am an Artisan Composer, which after reading does sound like me.
    These tests relate to education because they show that not all of us know ourselves as much as we think. While in school, students need to explore all the possible ways of learning. I always thought I learned better verbally, but maybe I might learn better visually. We all need to take time to explore all the facets of our personality.

  49. My results for the right brain or left brain test revealed that I am mostly left brained, however I still had quite a bit of right brain. The split between the two was 58/42. Being left brain dominated I enjoy activities such as math, list making, and organization. My strongest trait is verbal, which means I think out loud and process with my words rather than thoughts. I highly agree with this, I enjoy staying organized and having everything perfect, but I am also very loud and like to say what’s on my mind. On the Keirsey temperament sorter, I was given the title ESFP. This stands for Extraverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving. I enjoy talking and relating to others and I thought this was relatively accurate. Overall, I believe tests like this are fairly accurate. However, I have taken the Keirsey temperament sorter before in human behavior and I received a very different result. Something like this is all based on that specific day, how you perceive the questions, and if you truly know how you would react.

  50. My results from both tests were as I would expect them to be. According the the first test, I am 73% left brained and 27% right brained. The second test said I am an ESTJ, or a Guardian Supervisor. Being so strongly left brained says that I am very logical, mathematical, down to earth, and realistic. As a learner I think this means that I learn best verbally and that I tend to prefer classes like math and science. In relation to the world, guardians are more likely to be what Daniel Pink would call, “Knowledge Workers” and that’s nothing other than what I’ve always wanted to be. I see myself as as an extrovert who knows when to stop and listen but hearing other people’s results I think I really learned just how much every person varies in these areas. It’s crazy to think that it’s all based on our brains. Which is something I think educators need to take into consideration because no student learns the same, but on the other hand, no teacher teaches the same. It’s all a web of people needing to learn to work from both sides and adapt to their situation. I want to become more open to right brained ideas because I think that being more balanced would make me successful.

  51. I really enjoy these brain tests. I think it helps people understand more about the way they think, and why they do well in certain areas, but not so well in others. I was more left brained, with odds of 58 to 42. It was close to being half and half, but I still favored left brain thinking. One of my strongest traits was a right-brain one, though, namely concrete processing. Some people use a lot of their two sides of the brain, and some people really favor just one side. Then, on my second test, I was a Guardian Inspector. Guardians are about tradition and preserving old ways in society. Inspectors are guardians of institutions. They work patiently. But not everybody achieved these same results. This helps us understand that everybody is different. Nobody thinks exactly the same way, which means that some people will work better together than others. If we understood how everybody thought, then we could implement it into classrooms for most effective production of projects, or papers, or anything else. But the idea could be used anywhere. Certain thinkers do better at certain jobs. It could help people find their most effective careers. I could help people understand each other better, since they knew the ways in which they thought. I can relate how I think to how other people think. Now I can know why I feel like certain people always seem to have different solutions than me. We don't think the same way. Knowing the way you think can help you know how to act.

  52. Going into the tests I knew that I was going to be more left brained. At 57% to 43%, I still have some right-brained dependence. My most dominant characteristic is sequential and my least dominant is verbal. Though I always preferred visual learning to verbal, I never really thought that this category would only have a score of 27%. I was also very surprised that my symbolic characteristic was higher than my linear, meaning that I can process the information of symbols (aiding in linguistics, mathematics, and memorizing vocabulary words and mathematical formulas) better than I can process information from parts to whole in a logical and ordered manner. The results suggest considering my highly dominant or recessive characteristics because they may affect my learning, so I should focus on my sequential category because I may depend on it too much as well as my verbal category because I may not be utilizing it enough. On the right brained side I am more concrete and least random, showing that I excel at processing information that is derived fro m tangible objects and that I fall short in processing information without priority. I find that this all seems to be accurate with my personality and abilities, as I do prefer a systematic list than a random order. The other test concluded that I am a Guardian Protector, a "cornerstone of society". People with the Guardian personality type keep things in order and running smoothly in all aspects of their life. They are reliable and serious, though they have fun with friends and family. They value stability, are practical, follow rules, cooperate, prefer set procedures and schedules, and take change slowly, as it is better to be safe than sorry. Nearly 50% of the population are Guardians. As a Guardian Protector, I "offer a high level of commitment and stability". I am a hard worker and team player, and don't require thanks for the quiet tasks I perform. Considering my actions and my own perspective of my character, I find this result to be very accurate. After reading about all the categories within our brains and varying personality types, I find it incredible that many schools don't offer more individualized approaches to helping all students. Being that all humans are so different, standardized tests would not measure the true capabilities of students. I think right brain directed courses need to be available in all schools, so that more right brained people are not viewed as incapable when schools are only considering their left brained abilities.

  53. The ways brains work intrigue me, the tests were interesting because they helped me see how I understand and look at things differently than others around me do. I learn better in some subjects that in others due to this, certain subjects make sense and others are puzzling even after a second explanation. This is how our brains work though, all wired differently. I learn well reading or seeing information, but hearing a lecture does not do much good for me. The tests showed my brain as 44% left brained and 56% right brained, the right brained side of me retains information and patterns so reading and seeing information is easy to retain and understand; however hearing information is not as easy to retain or see a pattern in making it harder to understand. Understanding how I learn best will help me to study and work in the future because I better understand how to go about those activities. This relates directly to my education because my brain is how I learn and grow intellectually. Understanding my brain helps my education because I know how to utilize my brain efficiently. This relates to me due to my brain constantly in action, the tests helped me find how I work and what my intellectual strengths and weaknesses are. This definitely relates to the world, or my view of the world. Now I understand that I won't always come up with the same examples, reasons, or solutions as others because not everyone processes things the exact same way I do, which makes the world as diverse as it is. My test results showed I was 12% more right brained than left brained. Right brained people look at and see the whole picture, their thought process is sometimes illogical, they retain information well, recognize patterns, and can be athletes. Judging myself, all of these traits fit me, some more often than others. those were not all of the traits given when I researched right brained attributes, but just some that I felt represented me. My second test told me I was an Artisan Composer. I consider myself caring, considerate, and quiet, but I also consider my values important, all of which are traits of an Artisan Composer. Oddly some traits do not match up, for example I am not good at math or with shapes, and I do consider myself fairly good at communicating, both contradict an Artisan Composer. I found these tests intriguing, and very helpful to me personally, in my views of everyone around me, and to my education.

  54. Going into the tests, I wasn't sure if I would be more left brained or right brained. I thought my results would lean a little to the left side, but I was wrong. My scores were 46% left and 54% right. I was very intrigued to learn the many different processing methods the left and right brains have. Although I prefer visual learning, I use verbal learning just as much, and thought that this would even out the left and right brains more than it did. For the Keirsey test, I was labeled as a Guardian Protector. I have never thought of myself as a protecting type of person, and was initially surprised at my results. However, I began to recognize my own life, actions, and feelings in the description of protectors. Overall, I was surprised and intrigued to read about my brain and how it processes everything around me.

  55. After taking the tests, I'm not sure if the results were right or not, but I believe they prove an interesting point. I think that if everyone took these tests and then did a job based off of the results they received, everyone would be more passionate about their work because they would excel at their work. I think these tests are interesting, but in all honesty I didn't fully understand what they meant for me. I'm interested in learning more about how these tests work and what they mean for my future.
