sacha simon baron-cohen‘s systemizing and empathy quotient tests. i took them both many moons ago, but i don’t know where i filed away my scores (i’m not very systematic in that sense), so i just took the systemizing one again. (they’re a bit awkward to take since you’ve got to score them manually.)
btw, systemizing according to baron-cohen means:
“[A] person’s strength of interest in systems (defined as the drive to analyse or construct a system). A system in turn is defined as anything that follows rules, key classes of systems including mechanical systems, natural systems, abstract systems, and collectible systems. Rules in turn are defined as repeating, lawful patterns.”
for interpreting the results of the test:
“What your score means
“On average women score about 24 and men score about 30.
“0-19 = You have a lower than average ability for analysing and exploring a system.
“20-39 = You have an average ability for analysing and exploring a system.
“40-50 = You have an above average ability for analysing and exploring a system.
“51-80 = You have a very high ability for analysing and exploring a system. Three times as many people with Asperger Syndrome score in this range, compared to typical men, and almost no women score this high.”
my score? 83. heh. i’m so abnormal. (~_^)
baron-cohen’s also got a whole bunch of other tests to try out if you’re looking for some fun, online time-wasters.
