Hey, I resemble that remark! Computer dweeb by day, artist by night, that's me. Last year we did a cognitive brain mapping of our group at work. This was *not* a personality test, rather it was intended to discover a person's preferred modes of thinking. If one tries to communicate with someone who has a different cognitive preference, and neither of you is aware of the differences, it is extremely easy to garble the communication. Anyway, I ended up with an almost even split between left-brain and right-brain dominance in terms of preferred mode of thinking. Laurie
