BBC – My sex i.d. profile


Interessanten Test gemacht (gefunden über Okashi).

Anscheinend tickt man Hirn doch um einiges männlicher als ich dachte, dabei fühl ich mich grad im Moment besonders schwach-weiblich.

Zu den ausführlichen Ergebnissen geht es über den "weiter " Buttoooon :)

(Kann mir btw. mal jemand sagen, warum sich die benutzerdefinierten Felder immer so um den "weiter" Button quetschen? Was muss ich da ummodeln? Danke Inchen :-* )

Part 1


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: 16 out of 20
Average score for men: 15.1 out of 20
Average score for women: 13.3 out of 20

If you scored 13 – 17: You found this test
neither hard nor easy. This suggests your brain has male and female traits when
it comes to spatial ability.

Spot the difference

This task tested your ability to identify which objects changed position.
You lost points, if you incorrectly identified objects.

Your score: 29%
Average score for men: 39%
Average score for women: 46%

If you scored between 0 – 33%:
You may have more of a male
brain. Scientists say men tend to under perform in this task. The corpus
callosum, the part of the brain that links the right and left hemispheres, is a
fifth larger in women. This means women can process visual and other signals at
the same time more easily than men. There is also a theory that oestrogen levels
in women give them an added advantage in spatial memory.

Part 2


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.


Your empathy score is: 10 out of 20
Average score for men: 7.9 out of 20
Average score for women: 10.6 out of 20

What does your result suggest?

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: 9 out of 20
Average score for men: 12.5 out of 20
Average score for women: 8.0 out of 20

What does your result suggest?

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.

Scientists are keen to learn more about people who score high or low on both
tests. They want to find out whether or not empathising and systemising are
linked. Is a possible to make yourself more empathic?


This task tested your ability to judge people’s emotions.

Your score: 7 out of 10
Average score for men: 6.6 out of 10
Average score for women: 6.6 out of 10

If you scored 7 – 10: Your result suggests you are a good empathiser,
sensitive to other people’s emotions. Women generally fall into this category.

Part 4


We asked you to measure your ring and index fingers. Your ratios came to:

Right Hand: 1.02
Left Hand: 0.95

Average ratio for men: 0.982
Average ratio for women: 0.991

It’s thought that your ratio is governed by the amount of testosterone you
were exposed to in your mother’s womb. The ratio of the length of your index
finger to the length of your ring finger is set for life by as early as three
months after conception. Even during puberty, when we experience intensive
hormonal changes, the ratio stays the same.

Men generally have a ring finger that is longer than their index finger,
which gives them a lower ratio than women, whose ring and index fingers are
usually of equal length.

Studies have found that men and women with lots of brothers generally have
more masculine finger ratios

Part 5


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

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

Interestingly, women’s preferences are said to vary across the menstrual
phase. A more masculine face is preferred during the 9 days prior to ovulation,
when conception is most likely.

A typical ‚attractive‘ female face possesses features such as a shorter,
narrower, lower jaw, fuller lips and larger eyes than an average face.

Part 6

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

If you scored 10 – 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.


This task looked at your verbal fluency.

Your score: you associated 14 word(s) with grey and you
named 16 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

If you produced 6 – 10 words: Most people in this range have a female-type

Women are said to use both sides of the brain when doing verbal tasks while
men mainly use their left side. Studies have shown that girls develop
vocabulary faster than boys. This difference in brain power is caused by levels
of pre-natal testosterone


This task asked you how you would divide money.

If you had to split £50 with someone, you said you would demand £30

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.

What does your response suggest?

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.

Scientists believe that people with lower testosterone levels tend to take
fewer risks so they are probably more willing to keep less for themselves.
Those with higher testosterone levels tend to drive a harder bargain and are
less compromising.
