This Is Your Brain...

The Way You Sleep Tells You a Lot about Your Drinking.

THE WAY YOU SLEEP...

After 4 beers...


After 2 glasses of wine...

After 3 Kamikazes...


After 2 bottles of wine (shared of course)...

After too many Margaritas...


(Note how the head must be restrained)
to prevent it from exploding)


After 2 bottles of Jack Daniel's...




I got this in one of those forwarded e-mails that make the rounds, with instructions to pass it along if I could read it. I am chagrined to report that I was able to read it pretty damn quickly – which is perhaps confirmation that I’ve spent too much time with Twisted Linguistics and have done myself some brain damage.

If your brain is still functioning after that, you might want to try this.

Thanks to LeeLee for this Left Brain/Right Brain Test.

Brain Lateralization Test Results

Right Brain 62%
Left Brain 48%
*results won't usually add up to 100% as this test measures each side separately

Left brain dominant individuals are more orderly, literal, articulate, and to the point. They are good at understanding directions and anything that is explicit and logical. They can have trouble comprehending emotions and abstract concepts, they can feel lost when things are not clear, doubting anything that is not stated and proven.

Right brain dominant individuals are more visual and intuitive. They are better at summarizing multiple points, picking up on what's not said, visualizing things, and making things up. They can lack attention to detail, directness, organization, and the ability to explain their ideas verbally, leaving them unable to communicate effectively.

Overall you appear to be Right Brain Dominant

I love puppies.

I needed those pictures today. Thank you so much for the laugh. Any day that starts with a phonecall from you boss can only improve with a variety of drunk puppies.

Did not see that result coming. I assumed I would be more right brained being that I am left-handed. I guess my Gemini twins are sharing control. Good for them.

I'm not at all surprised at the results here.

Serena Joy said...

I do, too, Laurie. There's nothing sweeter than a warm, wiggly little puppy.

Yikes, Kan. I hope the boss wasn't calling w/bad news. You really do have some twinning going on. That's amazing that you're nearly perfectly balanced between left and right. I didn't know you were left-handed. About all I can do with my left hand is scratch.

I'm not surprised at your results, either, Roxan. I do think that they're wrong that we righties aren't very effective communicators. I think we do okay.

leelee said...

Oh those pictures are wonderful...I love puppies too! I guess I am one of the 55 out of 100 that can read that jumble...wonder what that means..lol

Thanks for the shout out!!

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Leelee. I guess the fact that we can read that must mean we're just multi-talented. Thanks for letting me borrow your brain test.

S-Joy,

That jumble-post was not any more difficult for me to read than it would have been had it been 'normal'. It is truly amazing, the untapped power of the human brain.

Overall you appear to have fairly Equal Hemispheres


I'm not arguing with the results, but I found the questions incredibly ambiguous. For example;
#3) I am a risk taker.


well, I don't invest money in stupid stocks, or have any desire to go sky-diving or hitchhike or bet on the horses, but I will sell my house and drive across the country with no destination in mind and all my possessions in the back of my car, just for the adventure of it, or start a new business all by myself, or write novels or make new friends without really caring about potential rejection.

Am I a risk-taker, or not?

Serena Joy said...

It is truly amazing, the untapped power of the human brain.

It really is, Camille.

Wow, you are perfectly balanced! I'll bet you don't see that too often.

Am I a risk-taker, or not?

Yes, you are. I answered the question in the same context. I don't make questionable investments or buy junk stocks, but I have (and probably would again) picked up and started over, set out with no particular destination, followed my heart to what could well have been doom, totally disregarded the rules, started a couple of businesses, written a couple of novels, yada yada yada. To me, that's real risk-taking. Thank God, people like you and me usually land on our feet.

Jamie Dawn said...

I guess I must have a strange mind since I'm one of those 55 out of 100 who can read that mess.
Strange is not a stranger to me. :)

The puppy pics are adorable. They better learn to curb their drinking while they're young. Nobody likes a drunk, old dog.

tfg said...

Per the test, I am 71% Right Brained and 62% Left Nippled. Who knew?

Serena Joy said...

Strange is good, JD, and highly prized.:) The puppies are so embarrassed about their pix showing up on the Internet that they'll never touch another drop.

So, TFG, you're saying your right nipple is pretty well useless? They can probably fix that.:)

Hale McKay said...

Grrrrr ...LOL! I had a future post for VT on the back burner for that "sraclebmd" study thing. The one I have is an entirely different paragraph too.

I am shocked that only 55 out of 100 could read the Cambridge one.

The one I have had results that 400 out of 400 people tested could read it without pausing. It was conducted by Ohio State.

I guess they have better brains than Cambridge?

A few months from now it will seem "original."

I love those pet pictures and the stages of drinking theme.

Serena Joy said...

Mike, if it's a different paragraph and not Cambridge, what the heck, go ahead and run with it.:)

Don't you just hate PPO's? This is why I'll only go to Lenscrafters from here on out, even if I have to pay extra.

puerileuwaite said...

BTW, my brain is 50/50, which explains why it always insists on going Dutch.

Serena Joy said...

Yikes, Pugsy, that's a hell of an eye chart. I don't know if I want to play doctor with you. And -- and I have to pay for half of my subscription? Hmmmm.:)

Lee said...

Absolutely adore those pics! So cute! lol

Rain said...

I could read the Cambridge. Does that mean I am special?

Right Brain 58% Left 48% and I am not surprised.

Those puppies are so cute!

Serena Joy said...

The pups thank you, Lee & Rain. And yes, Rain, you are special.:)

I cluod raed it esialy. How are you donig wtih this? Wronkig the Jmubels in the npespwaer helps. eet eeh. xrens.

As for the photos. I have seen most of them too. I like your idea of posting them instead of staving off whatever dire threat there might be.

I also post the jokes at How Now Blue Cow.

I doubt that only 55 out of 100 can read that. Even my son, who can't spell his way out of a wet paper sack with holes in it, could read it with no problem.
