Ditto. Had me worried for a second there.

My left side of the brain is just too awesome for this silly nonsense.

I thought it was one of those stupid 3 dimensional things. I can never do those. I didn't find the man until Deep pointed him out. I cheated.

If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, your right half of the brain is developed normally.

I'd need to cheat off you in a different kind of test.

Fun little test, but the psychology major in me would like to caution against the use of terms like 'left-brained' and 'right-brained.' Psychological labelling is never a good thing! Those terms are firmly lodged in the realm of pop psychology. Yes, it's true that people who manage to recognise the man in the coffee beans quickly could quite possibly experience stronger activity in their right hemispheres than those who take longer. However, this does not make them 'right-brained.' There really is not enough evidence to suggest such a thing as being 'right-brained' or 'left-brained.' You utilise both hemispheres of your brain in whatever you do (though certain sections do display signs of increased activity depending on the stimulus.) The whole left-brain/right-brain myth has about as much validity as the claim that we only use 10% of our brains. So for all you so-called left-brainers at Interference who are fretting over this image, don't worry about your poor, underdeveloped right hemisphere. Chances are, if you function normally, your right hemisphere is a-ok.

Some good links:

Have you recently giggled hysterically in a puddle of your own drool upon the suggestion of disembodied voices that only you can hear?

Granted. I'm just saying that people sometimes take this left-brain / right-brain stuff too seriously. For all you know, someone who doesn't know any better could stumble upon this test, find the man in less than three seconds and think 'wow, I'm right-brained!'

Are you giggling hysterically in a puddle of your own drool upon the suggestion of disembodied voices that only you can hear RIGHT NOW or have you giggled hysterically in a puddle of your own drool upon the suggestion of disembodied voices that only you can hear in the immediate past? And just as a point of interest, am I presently talking to √úberBeaver?
