Hello! I have a question on porosity, but not about the definition! I did the strand test and the results were of the low porosity. Thing is, my hair sucks up water like a sponge yet most heavy, creamy leave ins sit on the hair for like 30 mins before absorbing (oh Cantu, how I can't use you lol). So would I be in the high range (the water sponge), low range (water leave in absorb), or maybe in the middle?

Sounds like you're in the middle to low porosity range. If your hair is slow to absorb but it does in fact hold moisture well, your hair is probably low porosity. Be careful not to smother your hair! It needs room to breathe.
