    Default BBC Gender Test

    Here is the link for the BBC Sex ID (i.e., "Gender) test.

    Some of these items are more "novelty" ones than anything else, but you might all enjoy them.

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

    Yeah, but when you've been through years of gender 'testing' like we have, both professional and personal, these things are too easy to cheat

    Shhhhh!!! Don't TELL them...!!!! :rolli:

    * * * *

    Here are my scores. I took it once a year ago or so. Nothing really different at all from the first time. (I am an uber-androgender-wunderkin!)


    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: 18 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%


    Part 2: 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.

    Part 3: Emotions and Systems

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

    Empathising
    Your empathy score is: 11 out of 20
    Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20
    Average score for women: 10.6 out of 20

    Systemising
    Your systemising score is: 13 out of 20
    Average score for men: 12.5 out of 20
    Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20



    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



    Part 4: Fingers

    We asked you to measure your ring and index fingers. Your ratios came to:
    Right Hand: 1.02
    Left Hand: 0.98

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



    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.



    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

    Words

    Your score: you associated 26 word(s) with grey and you named 15 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

    Ultimatum
    This task asked you how you would divide money.
    If you had to split you had to split $50 with someone, you said you would demand $30.

    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.

    I decided to take this because the 2d:4d measurements from another thread a week or so ago made me curious!! Also, a funny sidenote -- my right hand is more masculine (2d:4d ratio on rt hand is 0.94, whereas left hand is 0.98), and so is the right half of my face!!! The right half of my face is slightly more angular and less full, whereas the left side of my face is poofier and is more full!! (not terribly noticeable, but at certain angles it's pretty evident!! I guess the left side of my body had more estrogen than the right side while I was in the womb?? )


    Your personal brain score: = -25

    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.

    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.

    3D shapes
    This task tested your ability to mentally rotate 3D shapes.
    Your score: 6 out of 12
    Average score for men: 8.2 out of 12
    Average score for women: 7.1 out of 12
    Words
    This task looked at your verbal fluency.
    Your score: you associated 11 word(s) with grey and you named 6 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 .

    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.

    When I answer these things honestly, I usually come out in the middle of the male range, or slightly closer to the 'centre'.

    Here is a question -- Did you have any noticeable perceptive shift in your spatial senses when you started taking testosterone? (i.e., your 3d shape manipulation abilities?)

    Angles

    Your score: 15 out of 20
    Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20
    Average score for women: 13.3 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: 21%
    Average score for men: 39%
    Average score for women: 46%

    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

    Empathising

    Your empathy score is: 3 out of 20
    Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20
    Average score for women: 10.6 out of 20


    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


    Eyes

    Your score: 6 out of 10
    Average score for men: 6.6 out of 10
    Average score for women: 6.6 out of 10

    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.

    Fingers

    Right Hand: 1.02
    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.


    Faces
    Your choices suggest you prefer more feminine faces.



    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

    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

    Your score: you associated 12 word(s) with grey and you named 6 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


    Ultimatum
    This task asked you how you would divide money.

    If you had to split £50 with someone, you said you would demand £49

    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.

    -----------------

    The ultimatum was about rationality. Since they lose everything if they turn down the bet, then rationally they should pick any amount greater than 0.

    The second answer I would of given was $25, as I would in a normal world situation in which there are outsides costs associated with the opportunity, as well as social benefits to being fair. In the lab, however, no.

    Note to folks: Watch out for that british pound sign, it's wreaking havoc on the post completion... I swapped mine for a dollar sign.

    I believe you're trying to entrap me into making politically incorrect statements

    I could say many things about how things changed for me when my brain lost estrogen and gained testosterone as its main fuel. But much of it would probably meet with resistance! lol
