About This Quiz

When it comes to your intelligence, you might have heard of the phrases, "left-brained" and "right-brained." These are used to describe how an individual thinks in their everyday life, as well as how they solve complex problems. If you think in a more logical type of way, then you're probably more left-brained. But if creativity is your specialty, then the right-brained path might be more suited for you.

These two parts of the brain can also be narrowed down to various types of school subjects. For example, left-brained people are typically better at math and science. For right-brained people, subjects like English and music might be of interest to them. So today, we're taking a closer look at two of these subjects that you're probably familiar with: English and math. While one subject is certainly not better or worse than other, it's important to understand how your brain thinks. With this type of insight, you can start to make better decisions in life and embark on career paths that you're naturally skilled at. Some of these career paths includes being a mathematician, accountant, English teacher or a screenwriter. For an in-depth understanding of how your brain works, take our intellectual quiz right now!
