The Ultimate Brain Quiz: Which Side Do You Use the Most?

Author: NeuroGym Team | 2021

This is the brain quiz that will finally reveal the answers you have been seeking!

You will find out which side of your brain you use the most. Even more importantly, we will give you some tips on how to get the most out of your gray matter.

Are You Left-Brained or Right-Brained?

When you think of the sides of the brain, which side do you think you use the most?

We are pretty sure that your answer would be either left or right. In all likelihood, you use this idea of the sides of your brain to motivate why you are more logical or creative.

We don’t see it this way at all! Yes, you heard us correctly. We don’t like to differentiate individuals on being left-brained or right-brained.


Finding Other Sides to the Brain

It is much better to use your whole brain when thinking and doing different activities. This is a much better way of going through life rather than simply using just the left brain or the right brain.

When we talk about different sides of the brain, we refer to Einstein versus Frankenstein. This quiz will determine which one you are allowing to rule your life.

Your Brain Is Amazing

Before you get to the quiz, we want to invite you to learn more about your brain. The more you know, the more you can use it. Join our Facebook group today and learn how you can become a goal achiever—no matter which side of your brain you use.

Brain Quiz

Are you ready to find out if you are Einstein or Frankenstein?

It is easy and quick to do, but we still want you to take your time and think carefully about each question.

There aren’t any right or wrong answers, so please be honest with yourself. You don’t need to share these results with anyone. All this quiz is meant to do is to reveal whether you are Frankenstein or Einstein so that you can take the right steps forward.

Ready? Let’s go!


Think about your daily routine, then answer these questions:

  1. Do you have a daily routine? Why or why not?
  2. How much of your time are you using productively toward your goals?
  3. Are you spending more time on improving yourself or are you satisfied with your current situation?
  4. Do you spend large amounts of time on mindless activities like watching TV or playing video games?
  5. Do you do activities like reading, studying, or journaling for inner reflection and self-improvement?


For these questions, consider your lifestyle:

  1. Do you eat more healthy food or do you eat lots of junk food?
  2. Do you avoid sugar as much as possible or have some every day?
  3. When it comes to alcohol, do you have a drink once a month, once a week, or more frequently?
  4. Are you exercising several times a week or is this the last thing on your mind?
  5. Do you get a proper night’s rest or sleep only the bare minimum each night?

Dreams and Goals

Reflect on your dreams and goals in the next couple of questions:

  1. What is your greatest dream? Can you think of it immediately or have you not thought about it before?
  2. What are you doing to turn your dream into a reality?
  3. Have you created goals to help you move up in life and help with realizing your dreams?
  4. Are you achieving the milestones for your goals?
  5. How long have you been working on these goals?


Think about the relationships and friendships you have, then answer the next questions:

  1. Are you hanging out with toxic friends?
  2. Is your romantic relationship in a good or bad place?
  3. Do you have people in your life that discourage you from achieving your goals and dreams, or do they support you?
  4. Do you feel revitalized or drained of energy after spending time with other people?
  5. Are your relationships at work positive or negative?


For the final section, reflect on what makes you feel secure in life:

  1. What makes you happy in life? Does your happiness come from within you or from external sources?
  2. Are you satisfied with your income, or do you believe you can do better?
  3. Do you have enough food, supply, and housing in your life, or are they lacking?
  4. Are your psychological needs being addressed, or do you feel insecure in your thoughts?
  5. Are you relying on external factors to provide security in your life, or are you taking definitive steps to improve it yourself?

Frankenstein or Einstein?

How did you do with the quiz? Hopefully, it has helped you to reflect on your life, your current situation, and the direction it is heading.

Now, you can evaluate your answers and determine whether you are Einstein or Frankenstein. If your answers show that you aren’t using time productively, live unhealthily, don’t have or achieve your goals, struggle with toxic relationships, or that you search outward for security, then you are more like Frankenstein. If the opposite is true, then Einstein is in control.

The battle between Frankenstein and Einstein is the biggest one you will ever fight in your life. It is a war between your conscious and unconscious mind. Once you understand which one is dominating your life, you can take the best actions to improve it.



Frankenstein is a monster that we create in our minds and form in our subconscious. He is stubborn and illogical which frequently results in rash, unreasonable decisions and actions.

Even though Frankenstein reigns in your subconscious, he is obnoxious because most of what we think and do happens without a second of hesitation. It is a subconscious action that has become ingrained in your mind and controls your life.

The messages Frankenstein gives you are not what you want to hear. He tells you that you are worthless, will never have enough money, don’t deserve happiness, and will never be successful.

What a negative character Frankenstein is!

The worst part of all: We feed him ourselves. We give him the power to survive and thrive.



In contrast, Einstein is an intelligent being who thinks reasonably. He is your conscious mind, and although we like to think we are fully aware of our thoughts and actions, Einstein frequently doesn’t reign.

Thinking consciously is hard, but just like Einstein, we should be doing it every day. We need to fight against our subconscious so that every thought, action, and behavior is deliberate.

See, Einstein did things that were beneficial to his life (and ours!), but that was only because he put in the hard work, fought against the unpopular opinions, and found motivation within himself. He created his own destiny and took control of his life instead of sitting back and waiting for things to happen. This is what you want from your life, too.

Get the Most Out of Your Brain

For most people, Frankenstein bullies Einstein into submission. This doesn’t have to be your reality—you can gag Frankenstein so that Einstein can speak up and take control.

It all comes down to training Frankenstein to keep his opinion to himself. You have to use brute force to put him in his place and keep him there by putting him through his paces. Yes, Frankenstein is the part of your brain that runs rampant and out of control, but there are many ways to let Einstein take the lead.

Retrain Your Brain

Your brain isn’t hardwired—it can change because it is neuroplastic. By actively questioning your thoughts, you can determine whether they are really true and then change the message. You can teach your brain to think in positive, constructive ways, and doing this repetitively allows Einstein to come out.

Set Achievable Goals

Once you start to change your thinking, you can use your inner Einstein to identify your dreams and set goals that will make them come true. Think carefully about your goals, make them achievable, and create milestones. Reflect on your progress frequently and adapt your thinking and behavior to stay on track.

Take Action

Einstein is different from many other people because he took actionable steps in his life. He came up with ideas and experimented again and again until he got it right. The same should be true in your life—you need to take action if you want to achieve your goals.

Determine the actions you need to take to reach your milestones. Break it down into smaller pieces and work toward your goals every single day. There will be obstacles, but this is where perseverance kicks in. Continue to work hard. Even if you fail, get back up and continue on your journey.

When you allow Einstein to take the lead, you are enabling yourself to do more and be more. Tell Frankenstein to shut up and sit down when he rears his head. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. Give Einstein the reins, and you will achieve amazing things in your life!
