Male or female?

February 6th, 2003 § 2 comments

Contrary to most the quizzes you get in e-mails every day, the Gender Test is actually interesting. You answer a series of questions, and the program will determine whether you are male or female. It’s also designed to improve itself based on users’ feedback regarding the correctness of the evaluation.

Well, it correctly determined that I’m a male, with 95% confidence. Not that I had any doubts about my masculinity 😉 The site says it can get to 100% accuracy, but I don’t know in which circumstances. After the test is taken they explain how the results are achieved: statistical analysis, with a well chosen set of question that both genders are likely to answer in very distinctive ways.
