I found this link on and decided to try it myself. It's a sex ID test...
From the article...
Some researchers say that men can have 'women's brains' and that women can think more like men. Find out more about 'brain sex' differences by taking the Sex ID test, a series of visual challenges and questions used by psychologists in the BBC One television series Secrets of the Sexes.

The test is made up of six different parts. I'll briefly discuss each of the six sections. In step one they show lines at different angles and you match them up. They also you random objects which you have to take note of their placement. After 60 seconds they change the order and you have to click on the ones you think moved. Simple stuff. Step two determines which side of the brain is more dominant. I don't wanna give anything away, so thats all I'll mention. Step three part one asks random questions to determine whether you prefer to empathise or systemise. Part two shows pictures of eyes and asks you to pick the mood of the person. In step four you need a ruler to measure the legnth of your index finders and ring fingers. Step five shows different faces and asks which of the two you prefer. The final step, step six, shows you an object and another four objects at different angles, two of which are the same. This is probably the hardest of all the parts.

It seems a lot of the readers on Digg(mostly male readers) scored rather low as men, this worries me. I myself scored a 50 which is the average score for a male. This finally proves that I'm a male... or atleast think like one.

This quiz takes about 10-15 minutes but I found it rather interesting and worth the time. Be sure to try it yourself and get all your friends to do it too. Post results in the comments section if you want.

Rubbish. Who's to say the measured difference are due to nature rather than socialization? If you look at the average scores for the two genders, the differences are minute anyway.

I scored around 20 on the female side (I am female, btw) but I scored higher than the average man or woman on most of the thingies. I think what tipped the scales towards the feminine side was my preference for masculine faces. Go figure.

Anyway, it was neat. Thanks for posting
