Thanks, azalynn, for the link you provided. I took the time to take the test and it guessed my gender correctly. Not only that, but it also guessed my scientific background.
This is a very interesting and comprehensive test, as it includes brain-working, behavior and physical aspects.

However, for the eye test, they said that people usually do better than they expect and I got a very low score.

I took the BBC Gender Test and I scored 50 in favour of a Male Brain.

I pasted in a 1552 word essay I did on Asperger's Syndrome for a Biology class.

It accurately guessed I was male, but the female score wasn't that far behind. :/

It was correct half the time for me. The first sample of text submitted said I am female the second said I am male.

The Gender Genie is never quite sure about my gender. For the most part it's male, but sometimes it's female.

The really long one said I was female, very female. A lot of the reasons I scored the way I did was because of the wiring of my brain. I can't read maps at all. It said I can empathise better than most men and women. It also said I prefer masculine facial features. I scored far below average on the objects moving places test and scored way above average on the word association test. Seriously, I was more female than the average female. So much for Asperger's being Extreme Male Syndrome or whatever.

The GenderGenie is about 50/50 for me on both fiction and nonfiction.

For the BBC one, it scored me as 50 on the male end of the thing. These were some more specific scores:

Angles--20/20 (if only my vision were as good)
Systemising score--19/20
3D Shapes--12/12
Eyes--2/10
Empathising score--2/20
Spot the Difference--50%

I'm female, by the way.
