    Your personal brain score: Its between 0 and 50 on the male side, 25 maybe?

    Part 1

    Angles
    This task tested your ability to identify the angle of a line by matching it with its twin. This is a spatial task, which looks at how you picture space.

    Your score: 17 out of 20
    Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20
    Average score for women: 13.3 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: 71%
    Average score for men: 39%
    Average score for women: 46%

    Hands


    You said your left 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.

    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.

    However, these theories are debatable and leave much to be said about the small percentage of people who are ambidextrous.


    Emotions and Systems
    This task looked at whether you prefer to empathise or systemise.

    Empathising

    Your empathy score is: 15 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: 11 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.

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

    Your score: 3 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.

    ----------
    I've never been good at reading eyes, and probably not much better at reading entrie faces, but I think I get a good feel from things like voice and word use. I also do a LOT better at reading someone if its someone I know where I can notice more subtle changes from their regular self.

    Eyes do affect my impression of someone, but its more of a part of the whole picture and not something I can isolate. When I do read anythign from someones eyes its more a feeling of what type of person they are than what their mood is and I can't realy explain it (and could be very inaccurate as well as above).
    ----------

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

    Right Hand: 0.94
    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.

    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 feminine faces.

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

    Your score: 11 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 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.

    ----------
    I did take several engineering classes as well as lots of draftign classes. If it was not for the pressure of a time limit, I probbaly would have gotten 12/12.
    ----------

    Words
    This task looked at your verbal fluency.

    Your score: you associated 8 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?

    ----------
    Again, time limits, grrr, my brain does NOT work well under time constraints.
    ----------

    Ultimatum
    This task asked you how you would divide money.

    If you had to split 104.550 USD with someone, you said you would demand 41.8200 USD

    So far on the Sex ID test, men have demanded 51.6% (53.9478 USD) of the pot and women have demanded 51.0% (53.3205 USD), on average.


    What does your response suggest?

    Sex differences are small in this task. Demanding less than 60% of the pot (ie 62.7300 USD) is more typically female. Demanding more than 65% of the pot (ie 67.9575 USD) 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.

    ----------
    Converted to USD since post was not working with GBP symbol.
    It makes sense to me to offer someone the better side of a deal to me, and I'm not very materialistic to begin with so to me a 40/60 split in their favor seems fair to me and a good enough deal that only the most suspicious or purely chaotic person would decline.

    I think I'm resurrecting this thread (is that a no-no?), but I found that it was one of the more interesting tests I've taken in a while.

    Your Personal Brain Score: 0

    Angles: 6 out of 20

    This task tested your ability to identify the angle of a line by matching it with its twin. This is a spatial task, which looks at how you picture space.

    If you scored 0 - 12: You have more of a female brain. Scientists believe that people with a female brain find it more difficult to judge the slope of a line because they're not wired for spatial tasks. In past studies, 65 per cent of people who scored in this range were women.

    Spot the difference: 21%

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

    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.

    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.

    Emotions and Systems:

    This task looked at whether you prefer to empathise or systemise.
    Empathising

    Your empathy score is: 1 out of 20

    Your systemising score is: 10 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: 8 out of 10

    This task tested your ability 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.

    Fingers:

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

    Right Hand: 0.96
    Left Hand: 0.96

    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.

    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.

    3D shapes: 12 out of 12

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

    What does your result suggest?

    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: (I didn't read the directions carefully on this one, so it didn't count some of my words)

    This task looked at your verbal fluency.

    you associated 5 word(s) with grey and you named 2 word(s) that mean happy. We are assuming that all the words you entered are correct.

    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

    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.

    I did this October 2007.

    From a different forum:


    Bang in't middle

    Angles
    20/20

    Spot The Difference
    71%

    left thumb was on top - right side of brain dominant

    Empathising
    17/20

    Systemising
    9/20

    (systemsing is c*ck)

    Eyes
    9/10

    Finger Ratio
    Right Hand: 0.9
    Left Hand: 0.91

    Faces
    Your choices suggest you prefer more feminine faces

    3D Shapes
    12/12

    Words
    grey synonyms = 18
    happy synonyms = 23

    Ultimatum
    If you had to split £50 with someone, you said you would demand £1

    (my logic is that people generally follow a generous example - possibly more so than the example itself. By assessing the implications of another's actions; the receiver's intentions can be questioned if not changed.)

    i.e. If someone gave up £49 of £50 for me that they received serendipitously, I would be more inclined to follow their example of altruism. However, if I had taken the £49, I would be more likely to squander it.


    Not bad for the AM? Although my grammar needs attending too.

    I wont do it again, now. I know I've depreciated.

    And I don't think I'm that good at empathising (nor have I ever been). I tend to say the wrong thing at the wrong time; completely overlooking the obvious sympathy required for the situation.

    I've done this test before and came out male, but pleasantly validating as that is, my masculinity had already by that time been verified and certified by several panels of professional doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and lawyers, so I wasn't really in any doubt

    I do think the brain is more telling than the body.

    I did it last year and placed in the middle. From what I remember:


    Angles: in the "male" range

    Spot The Difference: Low middle (male) range

    Right Thumb on top - left-brain dominant

    Empathising: I got 4, which is piss poor.

    Systemising: Higher than even the (superior) male average

    Eyes: Average

    Finger Ratio: Definitely masculine

    Faces: Prefer more masculine faces

    3D Shapes - I sucketh, which is more feminine

    Words: Female range (lots of words)

    Ultimatum: I demanded 30 because who passes up a free 20? It's not so outrageous a split that they would balk.

    Your personal brain score: 0
    Average score for men who've taken this survey: 50
    Average score for women who've taken this survey: -50

    Part 1: Angles
    This task tested your ability to identify the angle of a line by matching it with its twin. This is a spatial task, which looks at how you picture space.
    Your score: 20 out of 20
    Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20
    Average score for women: 13.3 out of 20

    You have more of a male brain. On average, men outperform women in this task and those with more mathematical knowledge tend to score quite high as well.

    Part 1: Spot the difference
    This task tested your ability to identify which objects changed position. You lost points, if you incorrectly identified objects.
    Your score: 64%
    Average score for men: 39%
    Average score for women: 46%

    You may have a balanced female-male brain.

    Part 2: Hands
    You said your left thumb was on top when you clasped your hands together.
    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.

    Part 3: Emotions and Systems
    This task looked at whether you prefer to empathise or systemise.
    Empathising
    Your empathy score is: 16 out of 20
    Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20
    Average score for women: 10.6 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: 15 out of 20
    Average score for men: 12.5 out of 20
    Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20
    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.

    Part 3: 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
    Your result suggests you are a good empathiser, sensitive to other people's emotions. Women generally fall into this category.

    Part 4: Fingers
    We asked you to measure your ring and index fingers. Your ratios came to:
    Right Hand: 1.04
    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.

    Part 5: Faces
    This task looked at how you rate the attractiveness of a series of faces.
    Your choices suggest you prefer more feminine faces.

    Part 6: 3D shapes
    This task tested your ability to mentally rotate 3D shapes.
    Your score: 12 out of 12
    Average score for men: 8.2 out of 12
    Average score for women: 7.1 out of 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.

    Part 6: Words
    This task looked at your verbal fluency.
    You associated 14 word(s) with grey and you named 14 word(s) that mean happy.
    Average score for men: 11.4 words total
    Average score for women: 12.4 words total

    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.

    Part 6: Ultimatum
    This task asked you how you would divide money.
    If you had to split 50UKP with someone, you said you would demand 25 UKP
    So far on the Sex ID test, men have demanded 51.6% (25.80 UKP) of the pot and women have demanded 51.0% (25.50 UKP), on average.
    Demanding less than 60% of the pot (ie 30 UKP) is more typically female.
