Who doesn't love an online personality test? There's just something so satisfying about learning something new about yourself without even trying. But one personality test that's gone viral online this week is proving truly insightful.
Have you ever heard of the concept of right brain vs. left brain? If you haven't, let's just do a quick rundown. The theory posits that there are generally two types of thinkers in the world. Those ruled by their left brain are more logical, while those ruled by their right brain are more creative. There are a few different ways to test which you are - for example, if you're left-handed, you're more likely to be left-brained, while if you're right-handed, you're more likely to be right-brained.
But there's a new way of testing which type of brain you have. A picture has surfaced online that is designed to help you to distinguish what side of your brain is ruling the roost. How? Well, you simply look at a picture and decide which animal you see first. Here's the picture in question.
Upon your first glance at this image, you will likely either see a roaring tiger or a hanging monkey. Spotted one? Well, now we'll explain exactly what that means.
If you see the tiger, you're ruled by the left side of your brain. According to Brightside, this means:
"Your personality features are as follows: Organized: You do all your things in a planned way like you have a bucket list. Accurate: you have fixed goals and you know the way to achieve them. lucid: emotions and feelings don't prevent you from reaching your goals.Logic: you have good skills in mathematics, science, and the organization of ideas. Realistic: your world is very real. There is no room for fairy tales and fiction. And anyway, although your goals may seem to be high for others, you know they are real and doable."
However, if you see the monkey, this means you're ruled by the right side of your brain. Therefore:
"Your personality features are as follows: Impulsive: you do things in a spontaneous way. You have the ability to see everything in a different way compared to other people. Sensitive: you worry a lot about everything. You spend a lot of time thinking and acting based on your feelings. Creative and artistic: you are an expert in music, art, and other creative disciplines.Intuitive: you don't list the tasks to do and you don't respect the rules. You solve problems in an intuitive way. Dreamer: you have dreams instead of having goals, and you give the best of you to achieve them, and generally, it's a success. Remember that the two hemispheres of the brain don't work in an insulated way, they work together and complete each other. So, although it looks like you have more features from one of the hemispheres, you may also have features from the other hemisphere."
So, which side did you spot first?
