Art vs. Science

I love art and good design.  I also love science, including technical details and minutiae.  How can I love both?  Well, I took a test to understand that.

Are you right-brained or left-brained?

My results?

Right Brain Left Brain
51%
50%




When I initially looked at this, I thought, “Whaah?” My numbers add up to more than 100%. Evidently, there is a rounding error involved in the test’s calculations.

Here are some right brain characteristics. Here are some left brain characteristics.

My point here is that I’m pretty evenly balanced on both creative, intuitive, holistic thought and logical, linear analysis. As an employer, doesn’t a balanced person with both sets of characteristics seem attractive to you and your organization?
