    The accuracy on it is about 70%; better than a coin flip, but far from infallible.

    I had to take more than 15 posts to get to 800 words. Perhaps I haven't been so verbose lately. Anyways,

    I usuallly go by a combination of the avatar and from facts stated directly by the poster. Other than that, I tend to just throw most people into a "neutral gender" and put the matter completely out of mind. For the topic creator, it's obvious though, since she mentioned her gender in another thread. Anyway, on to the test:

    Words: 1485

    (NOTE: The genie works best on texts of more than 500 words.)

    Female Score: 1808
    Male Score: 2644

    The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: male!

    It will be interesting to see which types score for which. I had assumed that Thinkers would automatically score as possessing a masculine writing type, but so far we've had two INTPs with a higher feminine score than a masculine one. Perhaps the types with the most direct communication style are being scored as masculine. In that case, I would imagine that any type with Te as the first or secondary function is going to obtain a high "Male Score".
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    I got
    Words: 925
    Female Score: 1345
    Male Score: 2273

    Interesting and saved.


    Edit: As for you haha I properly just read this thread and realise I just took the test without giving an opinion on your state. My leanings go to 2/3 you being female.

    I'd have thought that, too. I ran a couple of my posts through Gender Genie, one I guessed would come back as female and one I figured would register as male, but they came back the same. GG is a cool idea, to be sure, but I'm not sure how much faith I put in it. Does using the word "and" really make me feminine, and "the" manly? Seriously? Do women not use articles as often as men?

    I checked out Gender Genie. I agree - it's hard to see how it draws any meaningful conclusions based upon the specific words counted. (I wonder if it is somehow measuring T/F difference. The 70% accuracy would be consistent with this.) In any case, I tried several writing samples:

    F 377, M 685 based on a report for work (690 words)
    F 943, M 1385 based on a journal paper (955 words)
    F 652, M 725 based on a long forum post (625 words)
    F 2560, M 3588 based on a series of personal emails (2188 words)
    F 1126, M 934 based on a short story excerpt (792 words)

    Looks like GG thinks I'm male, unless I'm writing fiction! As for human opinions:

    --Johnnyboy thinks I'm female because I created this thread.
    --Fduniho thinks I'm male because of my curiosity over what people regard me as.
    --(And Jock: I am over 30.)
    --MorganLeFay doesn't even think of me as a person, much less as a gender (thanks, I think)
    --LunarMoon thinks I already mentioned my gender on another thread.
    --and SavageBrain wouldn't believe me even if I did tell.

    Maybe ambiguity is a good thing, especially since it doesn't really matter anyway . . . or does it?

    It doesn't. Feel free to leave things as-is.

    I actually figured male, based on type and avatar. That is, until i read this thread, then I changed my assumption to female. You seem to think that your gender is abnormal for your type, and since over 2/3 of INTJ are male, it's easy to conclude that you are female, which you have now confirmed.
    You lose.

    Actually, I haven't confirmed anything, and I'm not sure which of my comments has led you to think my gender is abnormal for my type. Yes, INTJs are 2/3 male, but 1/3 is a significant minority, and I would think most people on this forum would hesitate to assume anything from that alone. I am simply curious as to what people base gender assumptions on online, where we don't have the usual visual cues: username? avatar? type? writing style? writing content? preferred threads/topics?
