Androgynous? Me??!!??


You scored 66 masculinity and 63 femininity!

You scored high on both masculinity and femininity. You have a strong personality exhibiting characteristics of both traditional sex roles.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 40% on masculinity
You scored higher than 40% on femininity

I just answered the questions as instinctively as I could, even if many of them I balked at. IMHO there are certain traits in the test I assume are "gender" assigned but shouldn't be.

I'm very happy as a woman inside a woman's body and I don't think "gender" has much to do with things such as leadership and assertiveness.

Thanks for the link Darleen! What I'd like to know is whether the test is scored in a "sexist" manner. Would I have been less feminine and more masculine had I stated I was a woman? Would your score have changed if you'd said you were a man? Does age enter into the result?
