Manly men and womanly women

Fun online test to see if you brain is more "male" or "female."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbo...x_cookie.shtml

Greg was relieved to see that I prefer masculine faces, but maybe a bit dismayed that I purportedly think "like a man." I fell more on the male side of the continuum than most women, but less than most men.

Re: Manly men and womanly women

Empathising:
Your empathy score is: 3 out of 20

Eyes:
If you scored 7 - 10: Your result suggests you are a good empathiser, sensitive to other people's emotions. Women generally fall into this category.

Hmmm, me thinks I am a good empathizer or maybe not.

Re: Manly men and womanly women

Got a 50 on the men's side.

- Did well on angles but pooly on spot the differences
- Also got an "Are you an engineer?"

Like LOL got a low empathy score (5) but did OK on identifying emotions from eyes (7). So what does that mean? You can identify emotions but just don't give a crap

Re: Manly men and womanly women

Wierd! I did much worse than I'dve thought on the angles (12/20) but did great on the 3D (11/12). 50% on the objects. Ended up about 25% female brain, probably due to the verbal part.

I thought it was fun, though, Martha.. thanks!

3 out of 20 on empathy, but 8 out of 10 on the eyes. Go figure!
Too impatient to finish, which is typical.

Humm that was interesting, I scored slightly on the male side but that doesn't surprise me seeing as I've always been a tomboy.

I think I see where this is headed. A few more posts and C-T will come out of the closet and admit he's a lesbian.

This resulted in a couple of pretty good variations on what C-T might
REALLY stand for. Alas, you'll have to use your imagination as the moderators have me on a tight leash.

This post is excellent reinforcement of the wisdom of that policy.
