Yes, I am a total sucker for Internet quizzes. You should see the ones I don't post.

I am somewhat bemused by the way this little quiz makes not having a strongly gendered thinking style sound so TRAGIC.



You scored as Either. Your brain is neither specifically male nor female in the way you perceive things. As bad as this sounds it can easily mean that you are capable of combining both gender aspects to your advantage. Rather than being genderless you are possibly able think freely. This does not mean that you are bisexual or androgynous or indecisive, but it might.

I further note that despite appearances here, "Either" is not simply the sum of "Male" and "Female". I tested it.

"Male" and "Female" are not so bad, but not what you'd call positive:

You scored as Female. Being mostly female by thought, is even though (still) considered inferior to masculinity in Western culture, a good thing in many ways: By definition it means that you are more creative, and sensitive towards your environment, enabling you to express yourself freely.

You scored as Male. Being mostly male, within your structures of thinking simply means that your reasoning powers are the way they are perceived in Western Culture higher than the one of the opposite sex. Psychoanalsis claims this to come at the price of creative expression - a rational thinker can not think out of the box it is claimed. Yet, many creative Minds were men.

When I try for "Sociopath", I get "Neither", which is not tragic at all:

You scored as Neither. You think neither like a man or a woman. What you are you may decide for yourself. Most people will consider you strange, alien, weird or funny. You are probably quite interesting.

Any guesses how the quiz's author comes out?

Also, each time you reload the page the quiz is on, it presents the questions in a different order. For some reason I find this fascinating, and wonder what if any effects the varying orders of presentation have on how people fill it out.

I went right down the middle for most of the questions because they just didn't grab me, and was therefore awarded a Y chromosome.

Further proof that the default gender in Western society is male!

Or that it's a poorly designed quiz, if one must be all spoilsportish.

i didn't try for sociopath, but for relative honesty (if the question made that possible -- i don't much like talking to strangers, but i do have friends), and:

i scored as neither.

You think neither like a man or a woman. What you are you may decide for yourself. Most people will consider you strange, alien, weird or funny. You are probably quite interesting.

true about what most people think of me. :)

i am certain more interesting than somebody who asks 2 questions in a short quiz about what side of the cinema i prefer to sit on. :)

Three! There was a "prefer left", a "prefer right", and an "either is fine, but the center is better". I don't know what those were supposed to be about. Probably left and right brain hemispheres, in some overly-simplistic way.

While I acknowledge trends in the way men and women think, I think there's way too much focus on this distinction. And I don't think your result sounds bad at all... but I'm just an indecisive bisexual, so what would I know? =)

I've added you to my friends list I can expend party invitations and things to you. (You helped me move, in case you can't remember who I am.) I hope to see you at projects_night some time—sorry you couldn't make it last week.

I would very much like to attend a Projects Night, one of these days when I'm not getting up at oh dark hundred. 5:40 a.m. this morning. This is not a time I'm supposed to be approaching from this direction!
