Left-Brained versus Right-Brained

The way we order things is individual preference; however, some minds are built to have things neat and tidy, while others take a more scattered but visual approach.

Research has shown that right-brain types are visually oriented. They tend to think based on images, not words, and they focus on the big picture rather than the details – it’s a more scattered approach. Left-brain types think based on words – making lists, planning in advance and approaching challenges in a rational way.

So why not utilize this information and organize based on your personality? That way, you can begin to organize in a way that suits your needs and conforms to your style! Below is a test to see if you’re a lefty or a righty!

Read each statement below. If it applies to you, circle the number.

1. I put away items immediately after I’m finished using them.
2. I love vibrant colors and being surrounded by them.
3. From a work of art to room design, I prefer symmetry.
4. I try to move my furniture around a few times a year. Sticking to the same old gets boring!
5. I’m a party planner extraordinaire according to my family and friends.
6. I must keep current projects where I can see them.
7. I have a designated spot in my closet and drawers for each item I own.
8. I often browse multiple windows at once when I am on my computer.
10. When it comes to major purchases, I rely on my instincts rather than doing research.
11. I tend to wear the same jewelry everyday.
12. If someone needs directions, I’m more comfortable drawing a map than giving verbal directions.
13. If I find a dish I like at a restaurant, I will order it overtime I go there.
14. I often drive with the “empty” light flashing.
15. I always have my shopping list when I go to the grocery store.
16. I have a lot of knickknacks around my house.
17. I like to have my books, CDs, and DVDs in order so I can easily find that I’m looking for.
18. On my desk are piles of papers, notes, business cards, etc.
19. I feel guilty if I don’t follow the rules when I play games.
20. I’m fine with last-minute changes.

Okay, now it’s time to count up the odd and even numbers you’ve circled. More odd numbers means you’re a left-brainer. If you’re an even kind of person, then you’re a righty at heart. If you have a equal spilt, then a mix of organizing systems will work for you!

Check back this week, where we will go into detail on organizing for left-brain and right-brain types!

I was very pleased with the service I received from Jurassic Junk. I was able to schedule at a time convenient for me. They were very respectful of my home when taking furniture out of my house. I plan to use them again and will happily share my experience with friends and neighbors. Janet Frings
