The BBC One television series Secrets of the Sexes scientifically explores the idea that men and women's brains are wired differently. Do you have a woman's brain or a man's brain? To find out what your brain sex is, take their Sex ID test.
The test is interesting and gives brief scientific explanations based on your score.
Not surprisingly, my brain sex is female.
I rarely participate in these surveys but this one was fun with great feedback
Nope. They got it wrong. My real sex is female; my brain sex, according to this test, is male. Not hugely, but noticeably -- about 25% on their scale.
Which just goes to show an important point: If there are differences between male and female brains (and I think it's possible that there are), they're only useful as broad generalizations. There are always going to be exceptions, and the regions of overlap seem to be greater than the regions of divergence.
Fascinating. I got about 50% male on their scale, which doesn't surprise me. I was a total tomboy growing up, and even with a husband and two kids, I still have guy tendencies. My husband is the sports widower in the house!
I just found your blog this morning through my Science Blogs LJ feed, and I'm liking almost everything I read in here. Great job!
