Don't Let Me Stop You

What the heck, you'll do what you want anyway.

How You Think

Posted by Dan Draney on May 13, 2005

This is a fun sort of test of the way we use our brains (Hat tip: Charles at Intentionally Left Blank). The test covers “how” not “how well,” and obviously item 3 is terrible advice.

If you do decide to take the test yourself, we strongly recommend you don’t use the html code provided. It’s riddled with mistakes (essentially every tag is wrong), and has several hidden links back to the site (a dating service). Just take the numbers and run.

Your brain: 60% interpersonal, 60% visual, 20% verbal, and 260% mathematical!

Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don’t date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don’t be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don’t have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 81% on interpersonal
You scored higher than 81% on visual
You scored higher than 36% on verbal
You scored higher than 99% on mathematical
