What Kind of Thinker Are You?

Here's an interesting test that I think describes me pretty well. My college degrees were in chemistry and I had a strong interest in and an aptitude for music. Click here to take it.

Some people have a strong preference for one style of thinking, and find some skills come more naturally than others. Other people tend to adopt different thinking styles in different situations.

This test gives you an idea of what your current thinking style or styles are. But remember - the brain is a very adaptive organ. You should be able to improve your performance in any one of these categories with practice.

The test appears to be based on the Renaissance ideal
