    Yeah, I wondered what "feminine" or "masculine" were supposed to mean myself. Pretty vague.

    Other than that, we don't do SATs here but in school I was considered quite talented in both reading/writing/languages and math/science/music. I was not at all athletic or aggressive, and I'm not lefthanded, homosexual, or on the autism spectrum.

    Right got 1.0 - 73:73
    Left got 0.98 - 72:73

    • The colour pink doesn't send me into girlish ecstacy.
    • Baby talk makes me want to go deaf instead of hearing it being used by two adults gushing at each other. When heard, bodily harm or painful gagging come to mind.
    • Some of my most important interests belong traditionally in the male sector.

    Well, I'd perhaps argue that everything you listed as "feminine" are cultural, rather than biological, patterns.

    Throwing that out there.

    Also, the theory could be wrong, or you are an exception.

    I would agree that it is problematic to simply say "more masculine" or "very feminine" without defining those variables clearly.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    1.014 isn't "high". It's normal. (1.014 is "about 1")

    Also, it would be better if people measured both hands, or right hands only since there seem to be significant discrepancies.

    Quickly browsing through John T. Manning's book, competitiveness and aggression appear to be pertinent.

    As far as the above, when it comes to work, totally competitive and aggressive or assertive. Personal and social interactions, not so much since losing at games, sports, etc. doesn't phase me. But I do play hard unless it's with a child. Then I will throw the game in their favour.

    Left is even higher at 1.12. I'm also a lefty but have learned to use right since it's a right world.

    Left-hand ratio is 0.97

    Right-hand ratio is 0.917

    Yeah. I'm totally assymetric. It's actually the same with my face/head (ear placement slightly different, as is resulting jawline/shape), but not in an obvious way. Weird things happened in the womb with me.

    Edit: Also, same as what INA wrote below - right-handed, never had gender/identity confusion, hetero, not autistic, would have to say 'negative' to physical prowess... (lol). Was however always more drawn to maths/sciences than humanities/languages. Excelled more in math/analysis subjects on standardized tests also. Not as good at verbal & reading sections.

    left: 0.92000
    right: 0.92333

    another exception who's not left-handed, gay, on the autism spectrum, or with particularly great physical prowess.

    also not particularly aggressive, tho assertive fits.

    There's just a "higher prevalence" of those things so that doesn't make someone who isn't any of them, an exception.
