    The objection is made that "scientists started the theory" that they are now debunking.

    Well, almost. Brain science certainly suggested such possibilities, especially as we know that left-handedness and right-handedness and other physical phenomena are linked to specific hemispheric dominance.

    So, since we have discovered certain areas of the brain that handle certain concepts and ideas, the theory made sense, and it took off with psychologists. So scientists had a hand in the idea, but it was not their doing only.

    But I wouldn't call this experiment a debunking, at least not yet. One experiment failed to find what they expected. All that means is that the mechanism they expected to uncover is probably not the mechanism at work. In time to come, "hemispheric dominance" may not be associated with "more" signal activity, but other distinctions.

    And in any case, the model remains useful. It may not be completely accurate, but it conveys certain labels and ideas that help in generalized thinking.

    Thank you for taking the Creativity Test. The results show your brain dominance as being:

    Left Brain Right Brain
    41% 59%

    You are more right-brained than left-brained. The right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. In addition to being known as right-brained, you are also known as a creative thinker who uses feeling and intuition to gather information. You retain this information through the use of images and patterns. You are able to visualize the "whole" picture first, and then work backwards to put the pieces together to create the "whole" picture. Your thought process can appear quite illogical and meandering. The problem-solving techniques that you use involve free association, which is often very innovative and creative. The routes taken to arrive at your conclusions are completely opposite to what a left-brained person would be accustomed. You probably find it easy to express yourself using art, dance, or music. Some occupations usually held by a right-brained person are forest ranger, athlete, beautician, actor/actress, craftsman, and artist.

    It has been debunked more than once, I assure you. And no, it makes next to no sense if you actually knew the anatomy of the brain.

    I just did a research. I feel stupid. I literally just read more than 5 links to know if it was really debunked or not. And yes, I know.

    Thank you for taking the Creativity Test. The results show your brain dominance as being:

    Left Brain Right Brain
    52% 48%

    You are more left-brained than right-brained. Your left brain controls the right side of your body. In addition to being known as left-brained, you are also known as a critical thinker who uses logic and sense to collect information. You are able to retain this information through the use of numbers, words, and symbols. You usually only see parts of the "whole" picture, but this is what guides you step-by-step in a logical manner to your conclusion. Concise words, numerical and written formulas and technological systems are often forms of expression for you. Some occupations usually held by a left-brained person include a lab scientist, banker, judge, lawyer, mathematician, librarian, and skating judge.

    Your Left Brain Percentages

    35% Sequential (Your most dominant characteristic)
    34% Symbolic
    34% Reality-based
    27% Linear
    25% Logical
    20% Verbal (Your least dominant characteristic)

    Your Right Brain Percentages

    46% Concrete (Your most dominant characteristic)
    39% Intuitive
    36% Fantasy-oriented
    17% Random
    13% Nonverbal
    12% Holistic (Your least dominant characteristic)

    Thank you. Only certain aspects are true, but this test was a waste of time. It said I was 50/50, then said I had 50% on every sub-category under each side. How pointless.

    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
