Do You Have the Mind of an Artist or a Scientist? Or Are You a Magical Mix of Both?
by Brian Whitney

There are a lot of different types of people in the world, but there are no two different types then the artist and the scientist. Which of these two types of people you are is pretty relevant to how your whole life goes, not only in what you do to make a living but in how you get along with your significant other and your friends and how you make decisions.

If you are more of an artistic type, then you probably spend a lot of time drawing, writing, playing music or acting, or if you aren't doing them, then you probably are thinking about doing them a lot. 

If you are more scientific, then you spend much of your time figuring out how things work and trying to find better ways to do them. An artistic person often isn't all that worried about their retirement plan, they are impulsive and do things for fun, while a scientific person has to figure out everything in a really rational manner. 

So what about you? Are you better off writing songs for your new emo band, or should you drop everything and apply to medical school before it's too late? Or maybe you are one of those lucky people that is a little of both? Take this quiz and find out.
