i seem to be the most extreme.  my summary was pretty accurate.

it's interesting to note that most of us (except for boz2) are more visually oriented.  does that go with being an artist, esp. a writer of plays which certainly requires excellent visualization?  but since drama is heavy on dialog, shouldn't we also have good "ears?"  also, most of us (except for kato) are left-brained.  does that correspond with being creative, etc?  it would be interesting to see what other artists, writers, creative people have for a profile.

There is a generalization that artists tend to be right-brained -- which also can corespond with being left-handed, but studies show that the relationship between the hemispheres in cognitive processing is very complex.  The right hemispere generally controls the left side of the body and the left hemisphere the right side.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creativity

An article from Scientific American Mind
THE RIGHT BRAIN MAY BE WRONG
Classical neuroscience holds that the brain�s right hemisphere processes the emotions behind faces and voices, while the left hemisphere handles the facts involved. Or not

http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=right-brain-may-be-wrong

Another from Scientific Amrican Mind on Creativity
Moments of brilliance arise from complex cognitive processes. Piece by piece, researchers are uncovering the secrets of creative thinking

Here is mine!

Summary:

Raymond, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant and show a preference for visual learning, although not extreme in either characteristic. You probably tend to do most things in moderation, but not always.

Your left-hemisphere dominance implies that your learning style is organized and structured, detail oriented and logical. Your visual preference, though, has you seeking stimulation and multiple data. Such an outlook can overwhelm structure and logic and create an almost continuous state of uncertainty and agitation. You may well suffer a feeling of continually trying to "catch up" with yourself.

Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor. You can "size up" situations and take in information rapidly. However, you must then subject that data to being classified and organized which causes you to "lose touch" with the immediacy of the problem.

Your logical and methodical nature hamper you in this regard though in the long run it may work to your advantage since you "learn from experience" and can go through the process more rapidly on subsequent occasions.

You remain predominantly functional in your orientation and practical. Abstraction and theory are secondary to application. In keeping with this, you focus on details until they manifest themselves in a unique pattern and only then work with the "larger whole."

With regards to your career choices, you have a mentality that would be good as a scientist, coach, athlete, design consultant, or an engineering technician. You can "see where you want to go" and even be able to "tell yourself," but find that you are "fighting yourself" at the darndest times.

It's pretty true!

Except for the selected career choices: I'm not a fan of Science or Math.
