Ganked from takhisis. (To whom, a belated "Happy Birthday!")

I had my usual meta-anxiety taking this test (It's not enough that I get the right answer; it's that I feel I have to figure out what "right" means in this context); it was somewhat disarmed by their caution that there isn't any right answer (which annoyed me in its own way, but whatever).

Anyway...

Tkil, you exhibit an even balance between left- and right-hemisphere dominance and a slight preference for visual over auditory processing. With a score this balanced, it is likely that you would have slightly different results each time you complete this self-assessment quiz.

You are a well-rounded person, distinctly individualistic and artistic, an active and multidimensional learner. At the same time, you are logical and disciplined, can operate well within an organization, and are sensitive towards others without losing objectivity. You are organized and goal-directed. Although a "thinking" individual, you "take in" entire situations readily and can act on intuition.

You sometimes tend to vacillate in your learning styles. Learning might take you longer than someone of equal intellect, but you will tend to be more thorough and retain the material longer than those other individuals. You will alternate between logic and impulse. This vacillation will not normally be intentional or deliberate, so you may experience anxiety in situations where you are not certain which aspect of yourself will be called on.

With a slight preference for visual processing, you tend to be encompassing in your perceptions, process along multidimensional paths and be active in your attacking of situations or learning.

I found their closing paragraph remarkably accurate, though:

Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are, perhaps, a little too critical of yourself -- and of others -- while maintaining an "openness" which tempers that tendency. Indecisiveness is a problem and your creativity may not be in keeping with your potential. Being a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more immediate, obvious and the more functional.
Update

I'm a moron, I forgot to mention the site: http://www.mindmedia.com/brainworks/profiler (But it is already refusing connections, so it looks like it's been LJ'd out of existance for a bit.)

Where is this home site

Sorry, I completely forgot to mention the actual site! I added it to the main entry, but:

http://www.mindmedia.com/brainworks/profiler

Note that it currently isn't accepting connections from (at least) my place; there's a good chance it's gotten LJ'd (the livejournal equivalent of getting slashdotted....)

It also has a nice view of you

Hm. I'm wary of sites that make even diametrically-opposed attributes all sound positive, but this one didn't seem to do that. It probably helped that I am so squarely in the middle, but I liked their phrasing, and their description of what I worry about is spot-on.
