    Angles 19/20
    Spot the difference 43%
    Hands right thumb (left brain)
    Empathizing 5/20
    Systemizing 16/20
    Eyes 8/10
    Fingers 0.92 right, 0.94 left (which makes no sense, since they're the same...)
    Faces prefer more feminine
    3D shapes 11/12 (surprised I got one wrong, actually)
    Words 8x happy, 6x grey
    Ultimatum £25


    Nominally 'male' brained, but I think the assumptions the quiz makes don't bear out in many cases. For instance the ultimatum: males average only 30p more than females. For 'words' the average difference is a mere word, and it assumes that all of the words are associated correctly (i.e. that the person taking the test didn't just make shit up). "3D shapes": average difference is only one shape. Fingers: a mere 0.9%. 'Eyes': better scores are 'female' yet the averages for both sexes is the same. "Spot the difference": men average 39%, women average 46%, yet anything between 66% and 33% is considered neither male nor female...

    Isn't there an older thread for this thing? I remember taking it, and I think I got the link from this forum. I don't remember if I ever posted my results...

    Yes, I started the thread for the same test way back in 2007-2008.

    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Angles

    Your score: 15 out of 20

    Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20
    If you scored 13 - 17: You found this test neither hard nor easy. This suggests your brain has male and female traits when it comes to spatial ability.

    Spot the difference

    Your score: 93%

    Average score for women: 46%
    If you scored between 67 - 100%: Those with a female-type brain generally score in this range. Your ability to remember where objects are may serve as an advantage to you when you're trying to find your way around places. You're more capable of recalling landmarks to get from one place to another.



    Hands

    You said your left thumb was on top when you clasped your hands together.
    Left thumb on top: This suggests the right half of your brain is dominant. Some studies theorise that as a right brain dominant person, you may excel in visual, spatial and intuitive processes.
    Right-brained people may be better fighters and artists.



    Empathising

    Your empathy score is: 6 out of 20

    Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20

    Empathisers are better at accurately judging other people's emotions and responding appropriately. If you scored 15 and above, you are very empathic and would be an ideal person to comfort people in a time of crisis. Women in general are better at empathising.


    Systemising

    Your systemising score is: 11 out of 20
    Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20
    What does your result suggest?

    Systemisers prefer to investigate how systems work. A system can be a road map, flat pack furniture, or a mathematical equation – anything that follows a set of rules. A score of 15 and above suggests you're good at analysing or building systems. Men in general are better at systemising.

    Eyes

    This task tested your ability to judge people's emotions.

    Your score: 8 out of 10
    Average score for men: 6.6 out of 10
    Average score for women: 6.6 out of 10

    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.

    Fingers

    We asked you to measure your ring and index fingers. Your ratios came to:

    Right Hand: 1.01
    Left Hand: 0.97


    Average ratio for men: 0.982
    Average ratio for women: 0.991
    It's thought that your ratio is governed by the amount of testosterone you were exposed to in your mother's womb. The ratio of the length of your index finger to the length of your ring finger is set for life by as early as three months after conception. Even during puberty, when we experience intensive hormonal changes, the ratio stays the same.

    Men generally have a ring finger that is longer than their index finger, which gives them a lower ratio than women, whose ring and index fingers are usually of equal length.

    Studies have found that men and women with lots of brothers generally have more masculine finger ratios. .

    Faces

    Your choices suggest you prefer more masculine faces.

    Highly masculinised male faces possess more extreme testosterone markers such as a long, broad and lower jaw, as well as more pronounced brow ridges and cheekbones.

    3D shapes

    This task tested your ability to mentally rotate 3D shapes.

    Your score: 10 out of 12
    Average score for men: 8.2 out of 12
    Average score for women: 7.1 out of 12

    If you scored 10 - 12: Are you an engineer or do you have a science background? People with these skills tend to score in this range. Past studies have concluded that people in this range have a more male brain.


    Words

    This task looked at your verbal fluency.

    Your score: you associated 20 word(s) with grey and you named 10 word(s) that mean happy. We are assuming that all the words you entered are correct.

    Average score for men: 11.4 words total
    Average score for women: 12.4 words total
    What does your result suggest?

    If you produced 1 - 5 words: You are more of the strong, silent type with a male brain. You probably find it easier to express yourself in non-verbal ways, preferring action rather than words.

    If you produced 6 - 10 words: Most people in this range have a female-type brain.

    Women are said to use both sides of the brain when doing verbal tasks while men mainly use their left side. Studies have shown that girls develop vocabulary faster than boys. This difference in brain power is caused by levels of pre-natal testosterone. Find out more .


    Ultimatum

    If you had to split £50 with someone, you said you would demand £25

    So far on the Sex ID test, men have demanded 51.6% (£25.80) of the pot and women have demanded 51.0% (£25.50), on average.
    Demanding less than 60% of the pot (ie £30) is more typically female. Demanding more than 65% of the pot (ie £32.50) is more typically male.

    I got 50 towards female, with extra high scores on the empathizing stuff, and extra low scores on the systematizing (low as in 0).

    I got really bored. I hate those "spot the difference tests" cause I suck at them so bad so I actually clicked off and let the time run down a bit then stared for a bit. The 3d test was pretty easy till i started to stress about the time and screwed up the last two. (I had plenty of time) I got bored writing words, too, which was pretty funny. WTF is normally colored grey? Oh, cement.

    And I really sucked at the angles. I think I did better before I decided to try to make them parallel and guess the one that looked most parallel.

    I got 25% on the male side.

    Part 1

    Angles


    Your score: 9 out of 20


    Spot the difference

    This task tested your ability to identify which objects changed position. You lost points, if you incorrectly identified objects.

    Your score: 21%
    Average score for men: 39%
    Average score for women: 46%
    What does your score suggest?

    If you scored between 0 - 33%: You may have more of a male brain. Scientists say men tend to under perform in this task. The corpus callosum, the part of the brain that links the right and left hemispheres, is a fifth larger in women. This means women can process visual and other signals at the same time more easily than men. There is also a theory that oestrogen levels in women give them an added advantage in spatial memory.



    Part 2

    Hands


    You said your right thumb was on top when you clasped your hands together.

    Right thumb on top: This suggests the left half of your brain is dominant. Many studies have tried to establish whether there is a relationship between handedness and brain dominance. Some scientists believe that if you are left brain dominant, you would be more verbal and analytical.


    Part 3

    Emotions and Systems



    Empathising

    Your empathy score is: 12 out of 20
    Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20
    Average score for women: 10.6 out of 20

    What does your result suggest?

    Empathisers are better at accurately judging other people's emotions and responding appropriately. If you scored 15 and above, you are very empathic and would be an ideal person to comfort people in a time of crisis. Women in general are better at empathising.


    Systemising

    Your systemising score is: 10 out of 20
    Average score for men: 12.5 out of 20
    Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20
    What does your result suggest?

    Systemisers prefer to investigate how systems work. A system can be a road map, flat pack furniture, or a mathematical equation – anything that follows a set of rules. A score of 15 and above suggests you're good at analysing or building systems. Men in general are better at systemising.

    Scientists are keen to learn more about people who score high or low on both tests. They want to find out whether or not empathising and systemising are linked. Is a possible to make yourself more empathic?

    Some scientists claim that our empathy and systemising abilities can be traced all the way back to prehistoric times. Find out more.


    Eyes

    This task tested your ability to judge people's emotions.

    Your score: 7 out of 10
    Average score for men: 6.6 out of 10
    Average score for women: 6.6 out of 10
    What does your result suggest?

    If you scored 0 - 3: Do you think you're good at judging how another person is feeling? Your score suggests this doesn't come to you quite so naturally.

    If you scored 4 - 6: Your result suggests you have a balanced female-male brain and find it neither easy nor difficult to judge people's emotions.

    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.

    Professor Baron-Cohen at the University of Cambridge says that people usually perform better than they expect to on this test.

    Men often think a person's eyes are sending signals of desire when that's not the case at all. Find out more.

    Part 4

    Fingers

    We asked you to measure your ring and index fingers. Your ratios came to:

    Right Hand: 1.01
    Left Hand: 1.04

    Average ratio for men: 0.982
    Average ratio for women: 0.991
    It's thought that your ratio is governed by the amount of testosterone you were exposed to in your mother's womb. The ratio of the length of your index finger to the length of your ring finger is set for life by as early as three months after conception. Even during puberty, when we experience intensive hormonal changes, the ratio stays the same.

    Men generally have a ring finger that is longer than their index finger, which gives them a lower ratio than women, whose ring and index fingers are usually of equal length.

    Studies have found that men and women with lots of brothers generally have more masculine finger ratios. Find out what other things scientists think our ratios may tell us.


    Part 5

    Faces

    This task looked at how you rate the attractiveness of a series of faces. The images you looked at were digitally altered to create slight differences in masculinity.

    Your choices suggest you prefer more masculine faces.

    Highly masculinised male faces possess more extreme testosterone markers such as a long, broad and lower jaw, as well as more pronounced brow ridges and cheekbones.

    Interestingly, women's preferences are said to vary across the menstrual phase. A more masculine face is preferred during the 9 days prior to ovulation, when conception is most likely.

    A typical 'attractive' female face possesses features such as a shorter, narrower, lower jaw, fuller lips and larger eyes than an average face.

    Are you surprised at what researchers think they can learn from your answers? Find out more.


    Part 6

    3D shapes

    This task tested your ability to mentally rotate 3D shapes.

    Your score: 10 out of 12
    Average score for men: 8.2 out of 12
    Average score for women: 7.1 out of 12

    What does your result suggest?

    If you scored 0 - 6: Do you find yourself having to physically rotate a map to point in the direction in which you're travelling? This might explain why you scored in the lower range in the 3D shapes test. Twice as many women as men score in this category. Previous studies suggest that those with a female-type brain or with an arts background fall into this range.

    If you scored 7 - 9: In past studies, 50 per cent of the people who scored in this range were women and 50 per cent were men.

    If you scored 10 - 12: Are you an engineer or do you have a science background? People with these skills tend to score in this range. Past studies have concluded that people in this range have a more male brain.

    Nearly a third of men who took this test got full marks, whereas less than 10 per cent of women managed the same. Find out why.


    Words

    This task looked at your verbal fluency.

    Your score: you associated 3 word(s) with grey and you named 4 word(s) that mean happy. We are assuming that all the words you entered are correct.

    Average score for men: 11.4 words total
    Average score for women: 12.4 words total
    What does your result suggest?

    If you produced 1 - 5 words: You are more of the strong, silent type with a male brain. You probably find it easier to express yourself in non-verbal ways, preferring action rather than words.

    Ultimatum

    This task asked you how you would divide money.

    If you had to split £50 with someone, you said you would demand £25

    So far on the Sex ID test, men have demanded 51.6% (£25.80) of the pot and women have demanded 51.0% (£25.50), on average.

    What does your response suggest?

    Sex differences are small in this task. Demanding less than 60% of the pot (ie £30) is more typically female. Demanding more than 65% of the pot (ie £32.50) is more typically male.

    Scientists believe that people with lower testosterone levels tend to take fewer risks so they are probably more willing to keep less for themselves. Those with higher testosterone levels tend to drive a harder bargain and are less compromising.

    Men's testosterone levels fluctuate over the seasons and are at their lowest levels during the springtime. This is said to influence their bargaining power. Find out more about the role of testosterone.

    The Ultimatum amused me. Regardless of how you divide the money, the other person is left with the option of either gaining a profit or not gaining a profit. It's not negotiable, just a matter of whether the money you decide to give them is worth it at all to them.

    Heh, yeah, I thought that was rather amusing as well. (I ended up demanding £49/£50 )
