    Just to make it clear, I was only mistaken for a male because they couldn't see me.

    If you look at me it's really obvious that I'm a female.

    You mean they thought the way you wrote was "masculine"? I've often wondered about that. ARE there any actual differences that show up in the way men and women write -- assuming you can't see their handwriting-- becuase I tend to think not...

    This seems to think there are (they studied fiction). There's a whole online test too. It's pretty entertaining.

    Sounds kind of F/T in MBTI terms. Male and female brains *are* different. But maybe it's more modeling. Wonder if a same/similar thing can be applied to other languages. Especially considering their formula. There are plenty of languages where most objects have a gender. Would the gap between refering to another human being and an object be less then? And languages where the number of objects isn't necessarily specified (or did they just use that to count the number of objects referred to). Would it necessarily seem like women talk about relationships more and men objects more? (Or would that seem more S/N?)

    Hm..... I'm not sure whether or not I talk about relationships more than objects, but I know that I talk about relationships a heck of a lot, so it's possible. I submitted several of my long posts to The Gender Genie and it scored me consistently as a female. Ha. So maybe they have something there.

    Okay, I am pretty sure that I appear to be a "masculine male" to everyone out there except perhaps my partner who I can roll over and show my belly to. However there have been people (women) who have said to me that they wonder why I'm not gay...I'm not sure what I did or said to get that response...it is just curious to me. I am certainly not afraid of feelings...nor do I hide my sincere feelings or responses. I don't lather them all over others either.....

    I do also believe that I come off as masculine (although slightly flaky in the presence of those I'm close to) but I've been hit on a little too often by men of a different persuasion. I've been described as follows (copy-pasted): "Mo is probably one of the gentlest, kindest, and most patient persons I have met. Despite everything that went wrong at dinner, he managed to keep his cool and made things work..."

    A similar description would also apply to the few male ISFPs I've known. Society tends to look upon those two italicised adjectives as being of a more female than male bent. I suppose that might be why, although masculine, some of us may be viewed as having some 'feminine traits' too.
