SEX I.D.
FIND OUT HOW YOUR MIND WORKS!



http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/sex/add_user.shtml?users=1

Try to answer all the questions - your results depend on you completing the test.
If you don't have time to complete the test in one go you can use the Save and finish later button.

Part 1: Complete simple tasks to find out how your brain works. 3 mins

Part 2:Your body can reveal clues about your mind. 1 min

Part 3:What you see in others and the roots of your behaviour. 5 mins

Part 4:Testosterone and your ring finger. You'll need a ruler for this. 5 min

Part 5:What's your mate preference? The attractiveness test. 3 mins

Part 6:Words, 3D shapes and what they say about you. 5 mins

My results:

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: 12 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: 86%
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.

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.
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: 16 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: 9 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: 9 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: 1.04 Left Hand: 1.04
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: 9 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 9 word(s) with grey and you named 11 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 £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.

Not only does the test give you results, it explains your responses.
Let me know how you did on some of them

Have a great weekend!

Motor City Monk said...

Nice blog! Loving your HNT archives - can't wait to see what you're gonna come up with for next Thursday.

Sorry, not into the whole 'test' thing but thought I'd let you know I stopped by.

Becky said...

I'll have to try that out! Happy Friday Chica!

Saur♥Kraut said...

ooooh, thanks for a fun test! I scored middle-of-the-road for most everything, and lower on empathy than most *blush* but with a definate preference for masculine faces.

Tumbleweed said...

I couldn't do the test because it had the word sex in it and we have porn blocker at work. I will have to try it a home. Also, I want to say thank you(sarcastically) for getting me hooked to that sight. So far I have taken 2 of the other tests including personality. I am in the middle of another. I am working on getting fired. :)

My sister doesn't like red hair. I've told her before how stupid this was. Lo and behold, her first grandkid had not only red hair, but ginger hair! I'd love to have ginger hair. It's a sign of being a Celt. Freckles and ginger hair. As a fashion thing, don't you think that's pretty exotic? Hotboy
p.s. just thought I'd ask

Ellen said...

I meant to come over earlier to let you know that I will take the test later.... but wanted to wish you a good weekend before it the weekend got here.

It's supposed to be in the 60's, after a cold start in the morning, so enjoy!

12/20 - Systemizing
5/10 - Eyes
1-1 - Hand Ration
Like more masculine features
12/12 - 3D Shapes
6 Words
$25 Split

Apparently I have a 25% masculine brain. Ususally I'm much better at the eyes and I couldn't come up with words for the life of me - must be an off day.

Going back to work now! That was fun.

Lee Ann said...

Trucker ~ I love that video too! Christina kicks...awesome voice. You have a super weekend.

Monk ~ Hey! So glad you stopped over. Thank you for the kind words. I hope you will come by more often.

Becky ~ Happy Friday back to you!

Saur ~ Oh, yes, I too love the masculine faces.

Tumble ~ Haha, I know, I spent some time at that site too. You will have to let me know what your brain sex is!!

Hotboy ~ I think that ginger hair is gorgeous. My grandfather "Robertson" had red hair (when he was young)!

Ellen ~ Oh, I am so glad you stopped by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. I know a cold front is coming through, I am still waiting for our winter!

Lee Ann said...

Heather ~ That is great, it is fun seeing what other people scored. It is amazing to see how different we all are. Have a good weekend.

jiggs said...

I'm fairly certain my boss was not pleased with me taking this test when he walked in.

angles: 17/20
difference: 50%
thumb: left
empathizing: 6/20
systemizing: 9/20
eyes:7/10
finger ratio:.93&.94
faces: feminine
3d shapes: 12/12
words: 7&3
ultimatum: 30/50

50% male

I think I scored low on empathizing/systemizing because I don't really have passionate responses to tests questions so infrequently, I say "strongly prefer"

What was your brain percentage male/female ?

Lee Ann said...

Jiggs ~ We are both right brain dominant. Our left thumb is on top of clasped hands.

I scored 50% female.

I think it is so interesting how we all score differently.

I felt like the 3D shapes were the hardest...you scored perfect on that one. I also thought I had done much better than a 12/20 on angles (I guess it was harder for me than I thought).

ticharu said...

Lee Ann!!! I have tracks to mix!

Captain Carl said...

Arrr....that be a crazy test ya have there matey.....it turns out Carl uses his right brain.......now if only me left would work.......

Gyrobo said...

I have nothing but contempt for anyone who has the left thumb on top when their hands are clasped. My score told me that I did poorly when it came to empathizing. But I think I overcame it by print screening that whole object remembering thing.

Hee hee! I cheated at an IQ test!

And I still lost.

Bathroom Hippo said...



My brain sex says I'm not gettin' any.

What's your excuse?!

Lee Ann said...

Tich ~ Oh, well you better get with it dearie! ;) Thanks for stopping in to say hi.

Cappy ~ We both think with our right brains. I knew we are a match!

Gyro ~ So you have a print screen memory, of course you do! You are a cute robothead!

Hippo ~ Uh, well, that wouldn't be my scenario! *blushing*

Fred said...

Just stopping by to say hi, Lee Ann. Have a great week!

Dave Morris said...

I'm too freaking lazy to take this test, but I wanted to at least leave a comment so you knew I was here.

I was here. I commented and all.

Mike said...

I refuse to take this test....I'd probably fail it somehow....lol

Lee Ann said...

Fred, Dave, and Mike ~ Thanks for stopping by, I am tired too. Hope you guys have a great week!
