Once again, my brain spurns stupid male/female generalizations!

So after reading ‘s recent entry, via , I tried the various tests on empathy, systemization, etc. Interesting mix of results:

Systemizing quotient

Your score: 61
0 – 19 = low
20 – 39 = average (most women score about 24 and most men score about 30)
40 – 50 = above average (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score in this range)
51- 80 is very high (three times as many people with Asperger Syndrome score in this range, compared to typical men, and almost no women score in this range)
80 is maximum

Empathy quotient

Your score: 49
0 – 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20)
33 – 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42)
53 – 63 is above average
64 – 80 is very high
80 is maximum

Autism Spectrum quotient

Your score: 11
0 – 10 = low
11 – 22 = average (most women score about 15 and most men score about 17)
23 – 31 = above average
32 – 50 is very high (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 35)
50 is maximum

Reading the mind in the eyes

Your score: 32
A typical score is in the range 22-30. If you scored over 30,
you are very accurate at decoding a person’s facial expressions
around their eyes. A score under 22 indicates you find this quite difficult.


So I score high on systematizing but also pretty high on empathy and on reading facial expressions.
