    I don't accept the right or left brained concept either, but just for fun I took the test. My score was 60% Left brain and 40% Right brain. I usually score near the middle on these.

    53 / 47. I'm perfectly satisfied with this score since I'm not a robot nor a fairy. I'm a robot-fairy... sounds like cyberpunk or shadowrun lol. I would be interested how other 15 personalities score if they're balanced or more on the one side if there is any relation.

    I'm pretty well balanced but tend to lean more to the right.

    Yes it would be interesting, I was debating whether to post similar polls/thread in the other types' forums as well, but can't decide...perhaps just do a few others? (to get a variety of functions or something else, maybe see F doms vs T doms for instance). The left/right brain thing might not be so well received, which is fine (I personally don't believe it either), but it's an easy way to look at those two contrasting aspects of personality (analytical vs artistic and so forth) that already has tests and such. What do you think?

    INFJ

    Fundamental Nature of the MBTI



    I wonder if some unhealthy individuals were more one sided for example or Si/Ni/Fe/Te vs Se/Ne/Fi/Ti.

    That could explain some INFJ with 60 left 40 right. Stronger Ni - Fe and weaker Ti - Se or more developed shadow functions. Maybe there is relation with age, for example 0-20 would be stronger with Ni - Fe and 20+ would start to develop right side when starting phase III. It would be even more freaky if everyone with 60+ right brained was actually... a leftie.

    That is a broad statement.
    I'm not supporting whether it actually exists, I am actually clueless on the subject matter. It just seems like kind of a lame sentiment when everyone quotes him on topics that aren't even in his field. It actually sounds to me like he was approaching his view from a more philosophical POV than a scientific one.
    sorry its just a pet peeve of mine.

    And what do you think of the above description? Does the idea that INFJs are mostly in between for right and left brain feel like a true/likely description?

    ....
    Don't know. I'd expect that an INFJ will adjust Left/Right brain activity to the current situation, problem, puzzle, game, etc.. If there is some 'nothing of particular interest' default state, perhaps it would be drifting around within 10% of an even split.

    As for the 'test', a lot seems to depend upon how one approaches it. Just the fact that it's a ~Test~ could push one into Left brain analytical thinking. But, if it's a kind of a ~fun quiz~, then, thinking will incline more to Right brain.

    Anyway, this morning it looks like I'm mostly in a Right brain state of mind.
