Right Brain Test

Take the right brain test. The following questions are designed to prevent the user from applying logic. When we cannot apply logic, we are forced to apply intuitive judgement. Logic is about certainty and being right, but there are few occasions in life when we can be certain about being right. The tests are designed to mimic life decisions; we use use intuition in life because we do not always have enough information to apply logic. That is why our more important decisions and judgements are intuitive. There is a short survey at the end of the test. The purpose of the survey is to measure intuition across a broad range of people. No personal details are asked for; the survey is anonymous.
