I got 25 points out of 100 on the masculine side of the scale, but it seems that the average for a man is 50. [ohwell]

Still - nothing wrong with being in touch with your feminine side. [Wink]

I think I'll give that one a miss on account of not wanting to crash the test program [Smile]

What does it mean that I scored 0? Am I sex-neutral? I did fail miserably at the empathizing section... that has to redeem at least some of my masculinity, right?

50 male, but it didn't understand a lot of the words I entered into the word association thing, even though they did fit [Smile]

About the money thing, I would, in a simulation, demand 49 of the 50 pounds - if the other person were logical, he'd take it, because 1 pound is more than nothing.

Taking into account an actual person with an actual sense of fairness doing this, I'd probably take a 25/25 split, though.

OMG! I'm male! OK, 50% male, but that's the average male result. I scored high in visual skills (well, yes, I have always been good at manipulating objects mentally - years of playing Lego, maybe?), and poorly at verbal one (to the point of being put in the "strong, silent type" [Eek!] ) - but I probably would have done better if the test was in French.

Oh well! I'm a female geek, and I'm fine with that.

Bang on 0.

25% male.

Their average results didn't seem very impressive. Practically all the things were almost the same for men and women. Especially that ultimatum. I think they worded it wrongly - I think the question should have been how much you'd accept, not how much you'd offer.

I agree, many of the male vrs female results seemed to be right up against each other with at some points only points of percents away from each other.
This was still fun to do, though I'll never forget hte look on my moms face when I asked her "for a ruler with milimeters". "For what?" "To measure a part of me for some Sex I.D."
I know that could have been worded SO much better.

I got one question wrong, and promptly punched the monitor, that totally makes me 100% male.

(Seriously, I got 50% male. Apparently my ring to index finger ratio should be around .95 for a guy, or .98 for a woman.. mine are like .. 1.04. I think that makes me a freak.)

Nope... mine is 1.02

Anyway - average schmaverage.... head in the oven and feet in the freezer is OK on average... but I wouldn't want to try it myself!

Mine was a 2.01. But then again I measured my "mm" by eye so that could vary a bit..

Mine landed right smack on the 0 too. Maybe my brain is asexual?

I think I was heading toward male / left-brained, but I got fed up with the finger measuring and quit.

/me hates measuring things.

I scored a 40 on the male side.

Upon answering a certain group of question, the site asked: "are you an engineer?"

Hmm. Mebbe? [Wink]

I'm a fifty on the male. Interestingly, one hand was dead on the average for women, and the other was dead on the average for men.

You're telling me your ring finger is over twice the length of your index? Creepy

Man, did that ever take LONG. I admit that I guessed on more than half of the spacial tests - I did better than I thought I would there. My score was 50% female, average right down the middle... story of my life.
