:fire: What gender is your brain?



  • I don't intend this to be a flame war but I realize it might turn into one. Just being proactive.

    Your Brain Is:
    A Hybrid

    You think like both males and females. You like pretty things, but you also keep things simple. You are visual, but you also like the deeper meaning of things. When it comes to sex, you're comfortable with rushing into it, or taking your time. You can hang with the boys, or the girls, and you'd be 100% comfortable. Furthermore, you tend to avoid drama, so you never start it, but you WILL finish it, if dragged into it.

    Basically what I expected. I know I lean more male than most women on at least a few traits.

    My introversion and anti-feminist position disagrees with some of that. I can hang with most guys but I end up not liking many women so the pool is much smaller.

    In my experience women do this more.

    I have friends and family repeatedly complain in detail about their exes and/or baby mamas/daddies.

    I think, "You obviously make poor life choices."

    I had a friend who would ask me advice because I was her only friend that challenged her rather demonizing whatever she was complaining about.

    I am pretty good at getting the person to empathize with the other person (assuming best intentions).

    If my kids argued, I wouldn't take sides but I would ask them to consider that the other person likely feels X. You understand why that is uncomfortable.

    On an occasion I was probably too quick to judgement my oldest said "you are my fairest parent; I expected more reasonableness (fairness, ability to see both sides, something like that) from you." (Parents divorced and both parents remarried and he is my step-son at this point in time I probably was in his life for over 5 years.)

    Soooo....

    What gender is your brand?

    I'm pretty sure Glint was female since she laid an egg, but I have no idea what Kralkatorrik's gender is or even if that concept makes any sense to an absurdly old creature that woke up cranky one morning ten thousand years ago and burned a gash like halfway across the continent.

    > Your Brain Is:
    > Female!
    > Your brain is a female, whether or not you are. That means you're more emotional, and have an understanding of deeper elements at play, rather than just surface level. You fight for what you believe in, even if it stirs the pot. Without you, your male counterpart would have a hell of a time leading the life he's leading now. You can multitask like no other, and love pretty, pretty things.

    Even though I explicitly answered that I am bad at multitasking. Huh.

    EDIT: Looking back at it, I seem to have underestimated the number of male people I spend time with, so I checked those questions differently and got:

    Your Brain Is:
    Leaning Towards Female, But Not Entirely
    Your brain isn't a hybrid as much as it is mainly female. You still enjoy avoiding drama, keeping things simple, and being visual, but you tend to be softer around the edges. You're orderly, efficient, reliable, in tune with your emotions and the deeper meaning of things. You're also more comfortable around the girls, but you can still hang with the guys.


  • Impossible Mission Players - A

    I dislike the fact that this quiz assumes I can answer "guys, girls, or both" to most of these questions. Where's the "neither" option?
    I call BS on this one, because a majority assume I'm some flirty person who talks to people all the time and am in a relationship.

    Anyways... Results:

    You think like both males and females. You like pretty things, but you also keep things simple. You are visual, but you also like the deeper meaning of things. When it comes to sex, you're comfortable with rushing into it, or taking your time. You can hang with the boys, or the girls, and you'd be 100% comfortable. Furthermore, you tend to avoid drama, so you never start it, but you WILL finish it, if dragged into it.

    I adore how it talks about how I have sex, since I've never physically done so...

    Whatever.

    Well if we're talking internal simulation, then yes, I have several thousand scenarios across a few hundred customizable models capable of running in the Stage. If you're talking some kind of VR program, no I don't think there's VR porn on the Hololens yet, but IMHO it would probably be worse than both physical and imagined sex.


  • kills Dumbledore

    Your brain is a dude, whether or not you are. That means you're visual,

    Nope

    you tend to rush sex,

    No. I specifically answered the opposite in that one

    you find goofy things hilarious (fart jokes, anyone?),

    Well, yeah. I do love a fart joke

    and you tend to avoid drama at all costs.

    If rather get along with people

    You like to keep things simple, so you have things like multitasking.

    Should that be hate? I've seen plenty of studies saying nobody can multitask as well as they think. I'm just aware and honest about it

    You would also rather shoot yourself than be the only male in a room full of bickering women.

    As long as they're no bickering at me, I don't mind.

    Looks to me like because I said I like beer I'm assumed to be a larger swilling sports fan. Loads of crappy stereotypes



  • Your brain is a dude, whether or not you are. That means you're visual,

    That's not what I've answered.

    That's not what I've answered.

    Mmmkay, one point.

    You like to keep things simple,

    Two.

    so you have things like multitasking.

    Wrong again.

    You would also rather shoot yourself than be the only male in a room full of bickering women.

    Explicitly answered that I have way more female friends. But I guess enjoying beer and being lazy is much more male than female. TIL.

    cloak15 All brains run on electricity, sweetie.


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    But in all seriousness, this quiz is total BS. Which is where the :fire: comes in I guess, but it's pretty well recognized that even if there are some differences between male and female brains (I'm not convinced, but weirder things have happened), you can't just split sitcom traits into two camps and call them "male brain" and "female brain". "Derp, I like porn and beer!" "Well I require romance, wine, and flowers, and then maybe I'll think about having sex." Cue laughtrack!


  • area_deu

    @Yamikuronue At least they didn't put maths skills in that test as a factor.



  • Would you spend the day without showering, playing a video game, and eating fast food?

    is that without (a), but doing (b and c) or without (a, b and c)?

    answers indicate the former but reads as the latter.

    Your Brain Is: Male!

    no surprise, given the answers I actually gave

    The majority of online quizzes are BS.

    I do believe there is a difference but significantly more complicated and nuanced than a few questions with only 3 choices each could resolve.



  • Hybrid. Not too surprising, though I think I lean more towards feminine, slightly.

    Agreed. Most of the 'answers' were BS; for the majority of them, none of the choices fit for me. For that matter, most of questions were rather sketchy, aiming more for a stereotype rather than realistic behavior patterns.

    But then, this is supposed to be just for fun, so subjecting it to some deep analysis is itself a :wtf:

    Someone made a crappy YouTube app that doesn't really work very well. Does that count?



  • @Karla

    Your brain is more male than female

    Absolutely.

    , but you have elements of both. That means rather than be a perfectly balanced hybrid brain, yours is a bit more rugged. Just a hair.

    Sounds reasonable.

    You love poop jokes

    Fuck yeah!

    and lazy days playing first-person shooters, without taking a shower.

    Why bring FPS into it? Probably not, though I played Doom when it was new. More likely to play Civ.

    You love eating big burgers, and not caring about your manicure.

    Oh, the burgers sound good, but I have to keep my nails trimmed for martial arts. It's not cool to accidentally scratch people when you're beating them.

    But you still enjoy pretty things, romance, and the deeper meaning behind things.

    Sure.

    i just got around to taking that quiz...... and it's crap.

    for one thing it ASSUMES you are in a relationship at the moment so six of the questions LITERALLY DO NOT APPLY to me right now.

    for another thing the questions are..... weird.

    like "pick an ideal meal one", i like sake, but am not a fan of sushi, i cannot stand beer but love pizza. not a huge fan of wine, but a decent salad is nice.....

    and so many more.....

    like i got

    Your Brain Is: Leaning Towards Female, But Not Entirely

    which i expected but for about a third of the questions i was answering "This question does not apply to me due to faulty premise... how would i respond if it did apply to me? i don't like any of these answers..... like at all..... but that one's least bad."

    so yeah..... the quiz is crap.



  • @accalia said in :fire: What gender is your brain?:

    so yeah..... the quiz is crap.

    I mean...the drama related stuff...how many internet trolls are male vs female? Gotta be mostly male.



  • @accalia Also, the whole quiz could realistically be boiled down to the poop joke dichotomy.

  • @Tsaukpaetra said in :fire: What gender is your brain?:

    Where's the "neither" option?

    I gave up after a while because of the lack of a choice such as “None of the above” on seemingly all questions, when that would have been my choice on a fair number had I been able to choose it.



  • @accalia said in :fire: What gender is your brain?:

    and like, why id "i avoid drama" masculine" and "i love to participate and make drama" feminine?

    if you asked me "i avoid drama" is FUCKING COMMON SENSE!

    On the first question I found myself looking for answers along the lines of, “I like watching a good drama” and “I prefer sitcoms.” Then it dawned on me that they probably don’t mean that kind of drama.

    I tend to like drama series and action movies over sitcoms and stupid funny movies.

    I was disappointed with Kill Bill 2 because I expected more action like the first movie. I wish Tarantino cut the movies differently...mixed more story into the first one and more action into the second one so my expectations weren't set up as they were.

    I chose the pizza and mentally throw the beer in the kitchen sink.

    You have to chose whatever fits better. It's not like it matters because these tests are all BS anyway.

    BTW there is no female brains on the internet. :trolleybus:

  • @Tsaukpaetra You know, I’ve never actually seen The Lawnmower Man, and to tell the truth, I’m not sure I want to.



  • Yeah, I got Hybrid too (with the exact same details as @Tsaukpaetra) but I'm also in the "most of these answers don't apply to me" camp so whatever. Though at least I do have a partner (will be 20 years of marriage in December!) so I didn't have to make up all of those ones. Not liking any alcohol was a bit of a problem though.



  • @Karla my brain is male, because I know I have the Y chromosome, all the male equipment, and a decent level of testosterone.

    The stupid quiz says "You're hybrid". I say, my brain is male, but fuck stereotypes. Sometimes I like "the feels", and I don't hesitate to admit it. So what? It makes me female, or what? Some questions were pulled right there from lame attempts at psychology articles from glossy 'zines.

  • @pydsigner said in :fire: What gender is your brain?:

    Root beer is a soft drink.

    I suspect most people outside North America will assume that’s an alcoholic beverage made using the roots of a plant, or whatever other connotation the word “root” conjures up for them based on words in their own language that look like it. Very few will assume anything called “beer” is non-alcoholic unless that’s specifically mentioned.
