"I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells." - Dr. Seuss

Right Brain

We all use both regions of our brain, but the one that I naturally use most is the right area. This means that I tend to have/ express spontaneity, expression, nurturing, social and interpersonal activity, imagination and creativity, artistry, holistic, and abstract and conceptual thinking. With all of these positive subjects, I still need to work on a few things. These include structure, control, clarity, focus, direction, responsibility, organization, planning, mathematical and analytic skills, listening skills, and rational and logical thinking. Overall, I embrace my messy, yet creative solutions and thoughts.

Decision Making

When making choices, I tend to follow the behavioral style. People with that decision making style are sociable, friendly, supportive, action orientated, motivated by acceptance, and avoid conflict. Others sometimes perceive my decision making as "wishy-washy", can't say no", or "too concerned about others". (which is bologna). The best organizational fit for my type of decision making is the one that allows for well designed, people orientated collegian settings.

My Blue Personality

Although this feature seems sad, it's not all that bad. This means I am genuine, trustworthy, caretaker, peacemaker, loyal, optimistic, nurturing, emotional, devoted, friendly. My core need is relationship. It frustrates me when others are negative, cause conflict, and are rude. I am also fun loving, charming, adventurous, artistic, adaptable, creative, witty, generous, and spontaneous.
