I'm flexible

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.










Should you be MALE or FEMALE?*

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.
