Simple Intuition or Sensing Personality Test

Updated on September 19, 2012

You can tell allot about yourself simply by identifying the side of the brain you tend to predominantly use. In split-brain studies, researchers have been able to map what functions, Intuition or Sensing, each side of the brain are responsible for.

In a simple test developed by students at Yale University you can now find out definitively why you think the way you do and what areas of expertise you possess.

I'm not allowed to put an animated image here on HubPages so follow the link below and record your observations.

Gaze at the spinning girl for a moment or two. Make note of which way she is turning; clockwise or counter-clockwise or both.

  • If you see her turning counter-clockwise that means that you predominantly use the Left side of your brain.
  • If you see her turning clockwise that means that you predominantly use the Right side of your brain.
  • If you are able to see her move in both directions that means that you use both sides of your brain equally. However, one direction may be easier to see than the other.

Check out what functions each side of the brain represents and compare it to what you feel are your natural tendencies.

Left-Brain Function (Sensing) - Counterclockwise

The current school systems favour the development of left-brain thought. It is more analytical, logical, rational and sequential. People who see things through the left-side of their brains will show aptitude in the sciences, mathematics and language studies. Being able to micromanage is a huge bonus for these people. They are good at storing and retrieving facts - great for taking tests or memorizing literature. They usually have great pronunciation and can speak with great clarity.

These people make up the majority of us. They fare better in schools for the most part as they are designed to help develop analytical skills. The doors are wide open and they could go on to enjoy lucrative careers in business, management, education or technical vocations.

Right-Brain Function (Intuition) - Clockwise

Not as many people see the world through the right side of their brain, but their ability to digest knowledge is nonetheless complex and impressive. Righ brainers see things as a whole rather than in parts. They can see the big picture and are great at moving in directions that help them achieve the greater goals in life. Their decisions may seem aloof or flighty at times but for them there meaning behind the madness. They tend to be more holistic and creative in the arts, are able to see trends and to some outsiders may seem to be able to predict the future. Memorization is not their strong points but they can digest knowledge by associating it through songs, symbols or stories.

Both Left & Right-Brain

Only 15% of the population of the United States can harness both sides of their brain equally. Those who do are able to so see things from all different angles. They rate higher in IQ tests and should find careers that allow them to work independently and/or be their own bosses.

      she turns one way until the picture flickers or when she switches legs, then she can go either.
