    Lightbulb This is your Brain on SEX. 16 Personality Factor Test

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0104174812.htm
    ScienceDaily (Jan. 4, 2012) Men and women have large differences in personality, according to a new study published Jan. 4 in the online journal PLoS ONE.

    The existence of such differences, and their extent, has been a subject of much debate, but the authors of the new report, led by Marco Del Giudice of the University of Turin in Italy, describe a new method for measuring and analyzing personality differences that they argue is more accurate than previous methods.

    The researchers used personality measurements from more than 10,000 people, approximately half men and half women. The personality test included 15 personality scales, including such traits as warmth, sensitivity, and perfectionism. When comparing men's and women's overall personality profiles, which take multiple traits into account, very large differences between the sexes became apparent, even though differences look much smaller when each trait is considered separately.

    However, the study indicates that previous methods to measure such differences have been inadequate, both because they focused on one trait at a time and because they failed to correct for measurement error.

    The authors conclude that the true extent of sex differences in human personality has therefore been consistently underestimated.
    SOURCE: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%...l.pone.0029265

    It makes a good deal of sense (and a great deal of common sense to anyone ever envolved in a heterosexual relationship) that both natural and sexual selection pressures have forged very different brains among the sexes.

    The Conclusion were drawn from the results of the 16 Pesonality Factor Biometric (16PF) test, and I'm interested to see if there is an obvious sexual dichotomy among the membership here.

    I searched (cursory) through the Catacombs for duplication to no avail. If I have in fact duplicated a thread, then please let me know.

    I am amused by how several questions are re-stated again and again, as if to weed out the self-dishonest or self-ignorant.

    I'm such a good F. The test is skewed though. It measures your warmth and/or your sensitivity by whether or not you value others MORE than yourself. I answered honestly and got low scores for it. No, I don't put others BEFORE me because that's stupid. I make sure I have enough to live and remain happy and then show generosity to people I care about. Also, independence and introversion might as well be the same category. Eh, I'm sure I could pick apart more. I have a low opinion of this test.
