The Q test

What to do: Using the first finger of your dominant hand, trace the capital letter Q on your forehead.

Result: Some people draw it so that they can read it, with the tail of the Q on the right side of their forehead. Others draw the Q so that it can be read by someone facing them, with the tail on the left side.

Conclusion: This test is designed to measure whether you are “self” or “other” centred. The two types have a very different way of seeing the world, and one type is no better or worse than the other. More information on the 2 types at Quirkology.
