All these questions are somewhat subjective. Total your R s then subtract it from 22 question if the remainder is less than eleven you are right brain dominant. The smaller the remainder the higher the degree of right brain dominance. The online test returns a lot more interesting analysis.

The ultimate situation is not to have one dominant hemisphere but rather a whole brain, a golden brain a balanced brain. A cognitively enhanced brain. People that have a balanced brain might tend to choose both answers.
