So what sex is your brain then?

Here is a quiz I came across on the BBC website.

It has been claimed that your brain can be either male or female and that may not have anything to do with your actual sex. (Dont ask me how - neurobiology was never my favourite subject). Therefore, it aims to find out the sex of your brain by asking questions based on surveys of male and female behaviour and comprehension ablities. All very scientific.

A bit time consuming but fun. Keep a scale handy.

What is your sex?

As for me I turned out to be just as female as all the other average females who were tested - not one bit of maleness in me. I was slightly dissappointed as I consider myself a techno-geek and all that. Looks like I will have to hit the mascara and rouge now.

P.S. My cold turkey lasted for much shorter than yours, Kate. Whatever have I got myself into?

Nice link. Though I got a few contradictory results about the "empathising" part, two different parts of the quiz say opposite things.

yah, true...but, how will I confirm, I am thinking the human way? I mean, if I think the human way, and reach to the conclusion that it is not a human brain, what should I say? I got a non-human brain, which can think human way or I have got a human brain saying it is not human!

pretty confused.....as usual
