About This Quiz

Are you the kind of person who likes a good movie? If you are, have you ever thought about why you might like one type of movie more than you do another? A lot of people would say whether or not you like a movie depends on whether you are left-brained or right-brained.  The right side of your brain is the part that is more creative and artistic, while the left brain is way more logical and analytical. 

So let's think about you in the movie theater, sitting there with your 18-dollar bucket of popcorn, your 13-dollar soda the size of your head and hopefully someone fun to watch the movie with. What would be the movie that you would want to check out the most? Would it be a documentary about climate change or a movie about some rich dude falling in love with a poor chick? Would you be more into "Wall Street," or would you be dying to see "Driving Miss Daisy"? The answer depends on what side of your brain is most dominant. Oh, and if you snuck your own snacks in instead of paying for that huge tub of popcorn? That means you are left brained too.

Take our quiz and we'll analyze both sides of your brain.
