About This Quiz

While it might seem like there are all sorts of different types of people in the world, a lot of people say that there are only two: left-brained people and right-brained people. Left-brained people are way more logical, methodical and analytical. These people would make good scientists and businessmen. On the other hand, people with right-leaning brains are more intuitive, thoughtful, creative and artistic.

What type of person should you date? It might seem kind of easy at first. If you're left-brained then you should hang out with someone left-brained, and if you're right-brained you should hang out with someone right-brained, right? Well not so fast, there is the whole "opposites attract" thing to think about. If you're all mellow and laid back, then maybe you need someone who is uptight and task driven to keep you in the real world so you can get things accomplished. And if you're the kind of person that is all wound up all the time, then maybe you need someone in your life who is mellow to get you to stop and smell the roses from time to time.
