      Question Right brain VS. Left brain thinkers

      I'm curious if more of you lucid dreamers are right or left brain hemisphere dominant.

      Please post which one you are!


      If you don't know, the survey in the link bellow will give you an idea
      Hemispheric Dominance Test determine if your left or right brain hemisphere is dominant
      Lucid Goals

      Short term
      convince a dc they're in a dream, get high, go swimming

      Long Term
      have a deild, continue a relationship, stop time

      I responded as a right brained person to 10 questions, and I responded as a left brained person to 9 questions. It said that I seemed to be comfortable using strategies for both sides for the brain. It also said that my preference may be situational and apparent mainly when stress in a factor. This does not necessarily mean that I am ambidextrous. However, I am on my way to becoming whole brained and will benefit from using study strategies useful for both sides of the brain.

      Well. That's...funny.

      (And why do they not space between 18 and questions? ...bleh.)

      I took the test, and honestly I thought some of the questions were a little hard to give a good answer to. I must consider though, no psychological survey is going to be very accurate at all to begin with with only 18 questions

      You responded as a right brained person to 12 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 6questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most.

      So yeah, something roughly around there I guess. I would have thought right-brain dominant to some uncertain degree.

      Right 11, left 7. I believe it. The characteristics sound like me.

      Good test is good.

      You responded as a right brained person to 10 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 8questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most.

      I got left, but the characteristics sound nothing like me at all. All from all the other quizes i took on what brain r u, i got right for all of them. I read both the left and the right, and i know i am right. And schedules suck like shit, which appearantly lefts use, but i hate them

      So im just gonna say i am right brain

      EDIT: i answered randomly just to check if the test is like glitched or somthing because it said 18 left brain. I answered random answers to the questions and it still said 18/18. So ima just say its glitched

      I'm a frequent lucid dreamer, this is what I got.

      "You responded as a right brained person to 9 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 9 questions."

      I guess I use both sides equally, although it said I'm slightly more left sided.

      Though I'm still getting nightly LDs.
      Do most people use more to left or right brain?

      2. Remember that I can always summon a shield around me to protect myself in dreams. No need to fear!

      Holisitc: Processing information from whole to part; sees the big picture first, not the details.
      Random: Processing information with out priority, jumps form one task to another.
      Concrete: Processes things that can be seen , or touched - real objects.
      Intuitive: Processes information based on whether or not it feels right know answer but not sure how it was derived.
      Nonverbal: Processes thought as illustrations.
      Fantasy-Oriented: Processes information with creativity; less focus on rules and regulations
      Btw, it said that the test may screw up the results if you answer the questions out of order or change the answer on a question.

      Wow it sounds like there isn't much of a pattern! I was surprised by how many took the test, maybe I just assumed more people knew their brain dominancy after taking a couple a couple psychology classes. For those of you that feel like their results don't match their personalities, for the best results you would want to take much more in depth tests that cover a larger variety. The test in the link was just meant to give you an idea like I said.

      I hope you guys enjoyed learning about your minds

      14 right, 4 left.

      I kinda expected that, as it's much easier for me to think through pictures in my head instead of words.

      13 Right 5 Left.

      Gotta be honest though the test is appaling. You can see it even in the first question left or right.. doesn't include "no preference" or "depends where my friends are" "I sometimes follow my hunches, sometimes I don't". I do the main bulk of my thinking walking around. By dichotomising the answer options you remove fuckloads of complexity and seem to loose your eye for left/right hemisphere lateralisation and synchronisation.

      Although to some extend people can generally be classified in this way, I don't honestly believe that this particular test will actually illuminate this.
