    I got a -50, typical female score.

    EDIT: Took it again & realized I didn't read the instructions right (because I often don't read instructions - is that male or female? )
    Got -25, so still female, but not so bad on the 3D rotation.

    Angles
    Your score: 14 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: 14%

    ?If you scored between 0 - 33%: You may have more of a male brain.


    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. Some scientists believe that if you are left brain dominant, you would be more verbal and analytical.


    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
    Women in general are better at empathising.

    Systemising
    Your systemising score is: 9 out of 20

    Average score for men: 12.5 out of 20
    Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20



    Eyes
    Your score: 7 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

    Your ratios came to:
    Right Hand: 0.95
    Left Hand: 0.95


    Average ratio for men: 0.982
    Average ratio for women: 0.991

    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
    Your choices suggest you prefer more masculine faces.



    3D shapes
    Your score: 5 out of 12 ?
    Average score for men: 8.2 out of 12?
    Average score for women: 7.1 out of 12

    ??If you scored 0 - 6: 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.


    Words
    Your score: you associated 14 word(s) with grey and you named 13 word(s) that mean happy.

    Average score for men: 11.4 words total
    Average score for women: 12.4 words total

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


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

    I scored +50, like an average man.

    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: 15 out of 20
    Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20
    Average score for women: 13.3 out of 20
    What does your result suggest?
    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
    This task tested your ability to identify which objects changed position. You lost points, if you incorrectly identified objects.
    Your score: 14%
    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.

    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.

    Emotions and Systems
    This task looked at whether you prefer to empathise or systemise.
    Empathising
    Your empathy score is: 9 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: 12 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?

    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
    What does your result suggest?
    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: 1.04
    Left Hand: 1.01
    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 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. (I'm not going to ovulate in 9 days, sorry test.)
    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?

    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 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
    Doesn't count, I'm foreign.

    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.

    I scored 25

    I seemed to do fine with language and recognizing emotion, but I excelled in spatial reasoning which apparently is a more masculine trait. Must be all my hiking and science background.

    Although my left thumb was on top, I am ambidextrous. I know I use both sides of my brain equally which is why sometimes it takes me a bit longer to reach a decision because of conflicting information reaching my consciousness at the same time.

    Interesting test. Thanks Jennifer.

    Parts of this seemed a little suspect (for instance, isn't the whole "women use more words per day than men" thing a myth?) but overall an interesting test!

    Scored +50 like an average male (I'm a girl ).

    Interesting, since apparently the test creators made this claim on their test (and it's not good when your own test proves your answer key wrong):

    The finger tests asked for finger length in mm and then it only allows a min of 10 mm! well, sorry my fingers aren't that long. What did I misunderstand there?

    10 mm is 1 centimeter (less than 1 in)...your index/ring fingers are really that short?
