    I'm an NF woman and I scored female: 12/20.
    My index finger is significantly shorter than my ring finger.
    Actually women check other men out just as much - I had a research agency come and talk to me about random eye movement technology - and women are JUST as bad, doesn't excuse the behvaiour but women get caught much less.

    I didn't know being good at multi-tasking, good hearing, and not being a collector was feminine. I probably could have come up with a better test.
    Are you serious? Most men are lousy multi taskers? The good hearing thing is a different issue. It's not that men doens't hear - they are listenting to what is in their heads on to what is being spoken (which they listen to like reading a new paper - read the first sentce and engage or not).

    As for collecting thigs, I don't beleive that men do this more or less.

    Actually I wonder if Men's feild of vision this is replicated in subject interest. Men seem to like to know a HUGE amount about specalist subjects - like football, bike engines, or geeky sides of subjects.....

    I did some research on razors at one point and sat through a futurlogy lecture on technology - persumably men like langue that make the experience - so having a new gismo is not enough, they need to have technical descriptors. If you give a peice of new technology to a couple, the male will learn how to use it and keep that knowledge to themselves, women learn then share with the family.

    Gender devides much more than anatomy....

    Jeez, I don't want to be condescending, but that's a really stereotypical view of men. If I look around I can't see that many examples of these behaviors. Males won't share information with their family? Why?

    I wonder how they decide what traits are female and which ones are male. Perhaps they go by the average behavior of men and women, or maybe they've determined which behaviors are associated with testosterone and estrogen. There's nothing intrinsically gender-oriented about those hormones, though, nor does it make a lot of sense to go by common behavior when it's so heavily influenced by culture. It seems arbitrary to me, but then I suppose everything does. I got 15 out of 20, by the way, which seems a bit high to me.

    This was taken from the primary research done with families (large sample size etc), I didn't personally condut the research - but it was being reported on by a reputable research agency.

    I beleive there was something anthopological going on - the secretes of hunter gather thing....

    If a man learns how to programme the DVD or Video then he takes that leanring and keeps it to himself. Women teach the kids and her partner....

    I don't know how they get to male behaviour's v's female one.... I can take a guess it's a mixture of research techneques.

    The book cites that when a man goes into the room the first thing he does is check out the exsits and logistics of the room, the first thing a woman does is check out the pairing/people's relationships in a room.

    There are many common things that are gender specifc, that certainly arn't cultural. I've seen reported studies on Car accidents that support women prang, men total their cars... This isn't cultural.

    I read something on human behavioral programming - that between generations various traits are handed down.... Oh yes I think it was Tipping Point (Malcom Gladwell), who said that if you're origns are more feisty - the present day generation would get into more fights, if your origns are more melow then you didn't. Something along those lines, and pretty universal is an inherant fear/dislike of snakes (which clearly loads of people overcome).

    I do think a fair few are testosterone/Oestrogen related when it comes to gender specific....

    An example of this is Man's fear of doctors... do you know more men die of gender specific cancers in the UK than women... I once had a go at an HR department because they offered women time of for cancer screening and not men.

    Mm. 8/20 and male. Spidery male hands.

    I'm 30, and still don't have a driver's license. When I'm behind the wheel I am unable to split my attention and become quickly overloaded. I frequently have to pull over to sort my head out.

    So. None of that, if I can avoid it.
