Brain matter issues.
I've always known that I'm left-brained. Math, physics, chemistry and even geography, history as long as it's academics-related, I'll ace it.
But art and music on the other hand.... WHAT A TORTURE. I remember sitting in my Secondary Two art examination (when it was a compulsory subject then) having to draw two limes and everyone was taking over two hours to slowly sketch, paint, shadow and what have you and I was, Erm, Ok I drew two circles... and then, now what?
I scored As for all my subjects and 50/100 for Art that year. I think that was a sympathy pass.
These days in the office, the partners MAKE me stay far, far away from anything aesthetics-related. Number crunching, revenue modelling, going through legal contracts and tender documents... come, give them all to me.
But when it comes to branding collateral, my 2 cents?
"Erm guys, don't you think the font looks a little too square? Could you make it more round perhaps?"
"I don't really know what's wrong... but I don't really like it. Don't you think it feels very... bookshop?"
"Oppps. You know what? I actually prefer the VERY first draft. Could we just go back to that?"
Ok... I'm sure these aren't even worth two cents.
Sorry gaise :(
So yesterday, I did this Left or Right brain test to see how much of a left-brainer I am.
Me to the husband, "WAH. I never knew I'm actually 90% left-brained?! That totally explains why my left hand is completely useless!"
"Ohhh. So this means you only have half a brain lah."
