En jaksa rustailla koskaan noita 'olet sielultasi amerikkalainen pueblo-intiaani' -testejä, mutta palvomani BBC:n tiedesivuilla roikun harva se päivä testailemassa. Tänään testasin, ovatko aivoni keskimääräisen naisen vai miehen. Häkellyttäen luin ensimmäiset miehiset tulokseni, mutta onneksi sijoituin loppujen lopuksi puoleen väliin skaalaan. Ja saihan sitten vihdoinkin tuon lukea: Your personal brain score: 0
Tässä koko paljastava litania. Talletuksena ensi talvelle, kun luen, mitä olen kesällä saanut aikaan.
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: 18 out of 20
Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20 / Average score for women: 13.3 out of 20
You have more of a male brain. On average, men outperform women in this task and those with more mathematical knowledge tend to score quite high as well. In past studies, 60 per cent of the people in this range were men.
Spot the difference / This task tested your ability to identify which objects changed position. You lost points, if you incorrectly identified objects.
Your score: 79%
Average score for men: 39% / Average score for women: 46%
If you scored between 67 - 100%: Those with a female-type brain generally score in this range. Your ability to remember where objects are may serve as an advantage to you when you're trying to find your way around places. You're more capable of recalling landmarks to get from one place to another.
Hands / You said your right 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.
Emotions and Systems / This task looked at whether you prefer to empathise or systemise.
Your empathy score is: 8 out of 20
Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20 / Average score for women: 10.6 out of 20
Empathisers are better at accurately judging other people's emotions and responding appropriately. If you scored 15 and above, you are very empathic and would be an ideal person to comfort people in a time of crisis. Women in general are better at empathising.
Your systemising score is: 8 out of 20
Average score for men: 12.5 out of 20 / Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20
Systemisers prefer to investigate how systems work. A system can be a road map, flat pack furniture, or a mathematical equation – anything that follows a set of rules. A score of 15 and above suggests you're good at analysing or building systems. Men in general are better at systemising.
Eyes / This task tested your ability to judge people's emotions.
Your score: 8 out of 10
Average score for men: 6.6 out of 10 / Average score for women: 6.6 out of 10
Your result suggests you are a good empathiser, sensitive to other people's emotions. Women generally fall into this category.
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.
3D shapes / This task tested your ability to mentally rotate 3D shapes.
Your score: 11 out of 12
Average score for men: 8.2 out of 12 / Average score for women: 7.1 out of 12
Are you an engineer or do you have a science background? People with these skills tend to score in this range. Past studies have concluded that people in this range have a more male brain.
Words / This task looked at your verbal fluency.
Your score: you associated 15 word(s) with grey and you named 7 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
Most people in this range have a female-type brain.
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.
Sex differences are small in this task. Demanding less than 60% of the pot (ie £30) is more typically female. Demanding more than 65% of the pot (ie £32.50) is more typically male.
