I thinks something is wrong with these tests.

Test 1: Right side of the brain 97% of the time. (Even when I was supposed to be anti-clockwise for a little bit.)

Test 2: Answered left side of brain for ALL questions.

Test 3: 59% Left, 41% Right

I noticed that every time I came to a conclusion about something I was thinking about the dancer would begin to move the other direction. The trick is simply figuring out what you are thinking! However, it may just be me because I have a mental disorder.

Definitely not Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personalities), and none with hypnosis that I am aware of. The only known cause of Dual Brain syndrome that I am aware of is a surgeons scalpel, and only with the patients consent as a last resort treatment for severe epilepsy. Although both hemispheres of the brain are fairly homogeneous in structure, they specialize in different functions of cognition and personality. Were DID associated with deactivation of the Corpus Callosum, the cognitive specialization of each identity would provide clear evidence of such specialization associated with the hemisphere the current personality was in. DID cases typically involve memory loss for the "unconscious" identity - meaning sensory input to the "asleep" hemisphere would not be experienced by the executive functions of overt consciousness. Basically, they'd loose function of half their body, and eye, an ear, etc.

This doesn't occur in Split Brain patients, because there is one central consciousness processing sensory input - and both hemispheres are awake and functioning properly. It's just that the left hand, literally, doesn't know what the right hand is doing. It's only possible to interview each hemisphere independently when sensory input is blocked IIRC.

Though, I have read a report about one of Mike Gazzaniga's patients who reported strange effects. Apparently, during an argument with his wife, his left hand had to restrain his right hand from attacking her. Unfortunately the source to the article was a dead link, and I haven't seen it elsewhere - so the story may be bunk.


Insofar as hypnosis, I don't think it has anything to do with disabling the corpus callosum. Although the hypnotized patient may experience increased activity to normally less active regions of each hemisphere. Whether or not this has anything to do with the increase in suggestibility though, I'm not sure. I read something in New Scientist some time ago about fMRI comparisons of hypnosis between groups of highly susceptible and low susceptibility to hypnosis. IIRC, the group with high susceptibility showed significant activity increases in the left prefrontal cortex. I don't remember what findings this correlated to - if any, though.



And I can't really comment on MKULTRA. I really don't know much about it aside from the use of '___' in experiments and it being the basis for Jacob's Ladder. Beyond that, I haven't really looked into what was officially disclosed, or what beyond that was proposed by CTers/Testimonies.

I came out as using my right side


I would put my results up but I just clicked of the page and haven't time to do them again, will try later and post up


interesting topic

Well, that was fun, thanx Jinx!

The dancer turns in both directions for me, particularly if I look at her feet. (no, I don't have a foot fetish)
Initial direction was clockwise.

Second Test - HDIT


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.


Third Test
Left Brain 48%
Right Brain 52%

Your Left Brain Percentages

42% Logical (Your most dominant characteristic)
40% Sequential
34% Symbolic
27% Reality-based
22% Linear
14% Verbal (Your least dominant characteristic)


Your Right Brain Percentages

55% Concrete (Your most dominant characteristic)
39% Random
34% Intuitive
32% Nonverbal
24% Holistic
24% Fantasy-oriented (Your least dominant characteristic)


Don't know what that all points to, if anything, but was fun, and interesting to see others' results!

I just find it weird how all tests say "Most people are left-brained", whereas, most everyone who posted their results here is right brained. Is there something to this? Maybe more creative people frequent ATS?

finally got the dancing girl, it helps when i cover up pparts of her when im trying to change, like just see the top of her head and concince myself what direction shes going.

Your Left Brain Percentages

58% Linear (Your most dominant characteristic)

6% Holistic (Your least dominant characteristic)

this one said left by 1%, the other one was 7 left, 11 right i think.

Hi, thanks for posting your results.

You have left out your overall percentages though!

VALIANT-

Thanks for taking the trouble to come back and post your results. It is interesting to see what is most dominant on ATS! So, thanks for contributing!

That is exactly my point for posting this thread!
I think it would be interesting to see what percentage of left/ right thinking people are skeptics/believers.

After all, believers rely more on gut feeling as do right brain thinkers.

No probs, it's an interesting thread


It's interesting looking at everyone's results, some pretty similar which I thought would happen

My boyfriends little brother just figured it out and he is 13 years old!

Focus more with either your left or right eye and she spins in the other direction.

I actually made her hook in one spot for a while!

Try it and tell me how it works for you..

Thanks to Jason!

I've seen the spinning dancer video a dozen times. Every time she's going clockwise from the start. After a few seconds of focusing, She can just go back and forth, never spinning. Think this has to do with having a larger than average corpus callosum, but not sure.

the result for:



Thank you for taking the Creativity Test. The results show your brain dominance as being:
Left Brain Right Brain
51% 49%

20% Intuitive
13% Nonverbal (Your least dominant characteristic


the bold items are considered high-optimum, the rest are average-low



Now, i guess its because of the way the questions were worded...
i too had a completely opposite analysis on the 2nd test:



You responded as a right brained person to 11 questions, and you responded as a left brained person to 7questions. According to the Hemispheric Dominance test, you use your right brain the most...



bottom line, for your survey & discussion, you can probably only use the test that had the most questions 'The Creativity Test', the second on your OP list of tests. ~at least that's my suggestion~ the call is most definitely yours

I scored 72% right brain which does not surprise me in the least.

And the little dancer will only go clockwise for me.

First test got right brain 53%, second test left brain 51%!

I think I am a freak...

S&F for you had lots of fun! Great Idea...

Been trying for nearly ten minuites, still going clockwise
, just showed my mam and dad and they both see it going anti clockwise.

Another member also posted that they got 51% & 50%, I wonder how you guys got that right?!

Must be the reason you are on ATS...

Always a pleasure hearing from you Guns!

Hmm well... One test said I was completely left brained with 0 right brain answers, while the other said I was 54% Right brain and 46% left brain. Not sure what to make of that.

I've taken tests in the past regarding this and I've usually gotten I'm neither left nor right brained.

Edit to add percetages for the last test.
