I’m a chick

In case you were curious. (Ccf Razib. who is nearly 100% dude.)

This is from a site that investigates your browser history in relation to known gender data for visitation of a group of top visited sites. This information is then used to estimate your gender. This is cool because it uses interesting javascript and some basic math. Here are my results:

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 55%

Likelihood of you being MALE is 45%

My analysis: As a blogger, most of my site visitations are determined by blogging. You will find an interesting correspondence between what is on this list and the topics of blogging over the last few weeks.

    You’re more of a chick than I am, but not by much (53/47). I do have to wonder about the sample populations for this.

    Apparently, I’m 99% dude when I’m using my laptop (99/1), but a hermaphrodite when I’m on my workstation (50/50).

    Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 6%
    Likelihood of you being MALE is 94%

    I guess that means I’m all man, but in touch with my feminine side?

    You should have tried macys.com to spice up your feminine side a lot more :) Apparently that’s the secret of being a woman (I thought it was”flawless secret” – darn, pardon the friday afternoon jokes)

    Man, you’re more of a chick than _I_ am (apparently I am, like, 96% guy). I would have thought I’d at LEAST come out 50-50. What’s a girl gotta do to get a computer to recognize her gender these days?!? :)

    Jennifer, according to Greg’s numbers, you need to research pure-bred dogs, hang out at Obama’s website, and gossip. Is it worth it?

    Seriously, I really am a dude. It also looks like the site that really emasculated me was doverpublications.com! That’s what I get for buying some math and physics books the other day, I guess.
