Right-Brained or Left-Brained... That is the question

I am more a right-brained person according to (http://www.mtsu.edu/~devstud/advisor/hemispheric_dominance.html) test.

I think subjective, intuitive, holistic, random, spatial with visuals and emotional yet i still carry the tone of linear and logical.
Stuff that I quoted from the test's results that I feel that shows who I am and how I think.

"The right brain, however, processes from whole to part, holistically. It starts with the answer. It sees the big picture first, not the details. If you are right-brained, you may have difficulty following a lecture unless you are given the big picture first. You're the student who needs to know why you are doing something."

"If you process primarily on the right side of the brain, you use intuition. You may know the right answer to a math problem but not be sure how you got it. You may have to start with the answer and work backwards. On a quiz, you have a gut feeling as to which answers are correct, and you are usually right."

"In writing...the right side pays attention to coherence and meaning; that is, your right brain tells you it "feels" right. Your decisions will be based on feelings."

["if you are left-brained, you are probably a good speller" so left-brained is out of question for me lol]

This is down to my core- "You will get just as much done but perhaps without having addressed priorities. An assignment may be late or incomplete, not because you weren't working, but because you were working on something else. You were ready to rebel when asked to make study schedules for the week. But because of the random nature of your dominant side, you must make lists, and you must make schedules. This may be your only hope for survival in college. You should also make a special effort to read directions. Oh yes, the mention of spelling makes you cringe. Use the dictionary, carry a Franklin speller, or use the spell checker on your computer. Never turn in an assignment without proofing for spelling." I actually do carry a spell-checker dictionary device.. i need a new battery for it.. T__T;;

"The right-brained person wants to see, feel, or touch the real object. Right-brained students may have had trouble learning to read using phonics. They prefer to see words in context and to see how the formula works."
"The right-brained person will sound something like this: 'Turn right (pointing right) by the church over there (pointing again). Then you will pass a McDonalds and a Walmart. At the next light, turn right toward the BP station.' Right-brained students may know what they mean but often have trouble finding the right words."
"Right-brained students need to back up everything visually. If it's not written down, they probably won't remember it. "

Left-brained sound a lot alike my friend, Crystal. She is totally math person and she ALWAYS and i meant ALWAYS need PLANS to be accurate and perfect. No last minute... etc etc. She is not exactly spontaenous (sp? see, i am totally a right-brained) so she tends to follow a rigid schelude.
