Ha! 80 masculine points, 54.167 feminine points and 63.3333 androgynous points.

So since when are assertiveness, the ability to stand up for one's beliefs and leadership skills 'masculine' qualities? Inquiring minds want to know.

I wondered that too. Men aren't supposed to be caring and gentle? Who knew? It's why I don't place much faith in these things. :)

Take it with a grain of salt. The BSRI is almost 40 years old ;)

There's a lot of psych that smacks of pseudoscience. I just thought it would be fun for a laugh.

No, I'm not offended. I'm just curious and the age of the test clears a lot of that up for me. When a psych test is as old/older than I am, it hasn't taken into consideration the strides made in gender roles assignment since then. My mother's generation would have scored high on the feminine part; my generation, not so much. It'll be interesting to see how the generation of my daughters scores--mostly because IMO, they've gone a little backwards--a natural reaction of the pendulum swings of gender relations.

But, thinking of it that way, it really hits home how far women have come to break out of their 'natural place' in the world. Pretty cool stuff all the way around.

So true. And also true about the slight backlash. I'm certainly of a mind that the less rigid the gender roles become, the better off we all are. I'd love to see more male nurses, teachers, and stay-home parents (as well as other occupations traditionally considered more feminine). Definitely, it would be good to see more flexibility in the workplace for both genders of parents and more flexibility in court custody rulings.

Um, in my defense, I was bored and this is one way a person who bears the irrevocable scars of an undergrad education in psychology finds amusement on such occasions.

That and, it's a nearly 40 year old test that's always a conversation starter at parties...er...well...online ones anyway.

If a strong proclivity for drinking beer was one of the test questions for masculinity, I think my scores would have been significantly lower on the masculine side.
