Friday Frolics - What Side of Your Brain is Dominant?

We all know there are two sides to our brain, the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere.

There's the distinctive analytic and verbal style of thinking associated with the logical left hemisphere of the brain, and a more holistic, creative style associated with the right, it is generally believed. No, this is not a science lesson. You can read up more about it online, if you are interested.

However, this is Friday Frolics so we shall frolick with a personality quiz today, and this week we find out as to which side of our brain is more dominant.

For this writer..

The Right Side of Your Brain is Dominant

You have an active imagination and intuition. You have a very fluid way of thinking.

You don't put bounds or limitations on your thoughts. You are a down to earth daydreamer.

You have a broad perspective on the world. You may be a bit chaotic, but you never get stuck in a rut.

You are always able to pick up where you left off or start in the middle with something. You are a non-linear thinker.

Last Week's Quiz: The Shoe Personality Test

Friday, February 19, 2016

Friday Frolics - The Shoe Personality Test

Today is the 12th day of the new lunar year and yes, today is still part of the Spring Festival as celebrated by the Chinese community all over the world.

Spring Festival is celebrated for 15 days, from Day 1 which was on February 8 until the 15th day which will fall on Monday, February 22.

For this Friday Frolics, I have picked one relating to Shoes. Let me tell you something with reference to shoes this time of the year.

Buying shoes during Chinese New Year (any of the 15 days) is a no-no. The Chinese observe some do's and don'ts during this time of the year and buying shoes is one of the don'ts. Some still observe this, yours truly included. It is believed that buying shoes this time of the year will result in a coming year of sighs and challenges. I figured better to be safe than sorry.

And now the quiz..

You Are Clogs

You are a solid and down to earth person.

You seek – and almost always achieve – a really sound balance in your life.

You are stylish yet comfortable. Mellow but driven. Excited yet calm.

You are the perfect mesh of contradictions.

No matter what happens, you have the ability to stay well grounded in your life.

People know that they can truly depend on you.

You should live: In Europe

You should work: At a company dedicated to helping the world

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Today is the Fifth Day of the new lunar year. Learn about the significance of the Fifth Day of the new year.

Although many people are still in their hometown celebrating the holiday, many are back at work today. Incidentally, today is believed to be an auspicious day to commence work in the new year unless if you were born in the year of the Horse. Fret not, Monday is also a good day unless if you were born in the Rooster year.

Have You Taken The Road Trip Test?

Friday Frolics - The Road Trip Test

The real human migration here in Malaysia would probably begin tomorrow (Saturday) as people will start making the journey back to their hometown in anticipation of the long 4-day weekend ahead.

This holiday is the Chinese New Year which begins on Monday, February 8. This is a 2-day gazetted holiday so all schools, government departments and offices will be closed. But don't worry if you are here on a holiday because shopping malls and shopping complexes are all open, so are restaurants. While you are here, do enjoy the decorations and the air of festivity.

For today's Personality Quiz, what's more appropriate than taking a quiz regarding The Road Trip. This will be the last quiz for the year of the Goat and we'll see you again in the new year of the Fire Monkey!

Happy Holiday!

HappySurfer Takes the Road Less Traveled

You see romantic love as what's most important in life. A deep connection with someone else is the primary thing you crave.

You live life at a fairly leisurely pace. You take time to enjoy the sweeter parts of life, even when you're busy.

You're willing to take a few risks in life. You may not take the road no one travels, but you're happy to take the road less traveled.

You are able to find a fairly healthy balance between work and play. You work when you need to, but you never let yourself burn out.

You could have owned an indie bookstore or boutique in another life.
