Apparently I'm just average...  
Gacked from anatsuno:
Empathy Quotient and Systemizing Quotient Tests

My EQ is 48.
My SQ is 22.

Hrrrumph. I would've thought that I at least would've been more empathetic. -.-

We have been moved to our new cube area at work, which has all our cubes open to one another - they took down the high walls between each of the cubes. It's supposed to make it easier for us to talk to one another, which I'm sure is the case, but it also means a complete and utter lack of privacy. -.-

I have about 5 billion things to do when I get home tonight, and if a certain package I've been waiting for hasn't arrived, I am going to be royally pissed off. >:0!
I feel: busybusy

I took those tests...

my EQ was 40.
my SQ was 32.

My tests results were closer to those that men would have rather than women. -.-!

I can be feminine dammit!

*pats* Never fear - I've seen you put on lipstick.

EQ: 19. SQ: 36. QQ: 64.5. Hut!

Reasonably extreme type S, though I note that the crucial factor is difference between the two Qs. This may explain why you're so good at tech geekery and I'm rather less good. :-)

Simon Baron-Cohen is rumoured to be the cousin of Sacha ("Ali G") Baron-Cohen. Hmmm.
Zorac: zorakzorac on April 17th, 2003 09:59 pm (UTC)
OK, I give up. What's the QQ?

Oh, and did I mention that I hate Ali G with a great and terrible hatred?

Quotient Quotient, of course. (Quotient Quotient-Ghali...)

No. The only thing of his I ever liked was the Comic Relief interview with the Beckhams.

I really would've thought your EQ would be higher, but perhaps I am biased.
But your SQ - you MAN you! *swoons*
And did you take an IQ test somewhere or is that just from memory?

Figures? You make it sound like this is bad.

The IQ is from tests I've done in the past. Most recently was the big one the BBC did last year, which I maxed out at 138/139. The 142 comes from a series of tests I did from a book a few years back - that was 30-40 years old, so some of the language questions were a touch anachronistic, hence the + as my real score may be a touch higher.

Not so much bad, but 'as execpected'.

Ooh, I remember that. I got (I think) 67/70 which turned into 130. Did you get all 70/70? Kudos. Won't bother next year - I'll quit while I'm not too far behind instead. :-)

There are lots of different measures of IQ - some define a standard error to be 15, others 16, others 24. I think the BBC one had a delta of 15 based on a comment from the Mensa person on it.

All the same, you are fairly clearly "hella smart".

EQ 44
SQ 39

Not being average implies having a mental disorder, according to this researcher. So being average is actually desirable.
Vicki: Hrrrrmmm?hermorrine on April 17th, 2003 06:41 pm (UTC)
This researcher is being a tad narrow, I think, but it's interesting all the same.

Well yes, 120 questions to diagnose autism? Uh, no. But as you say it was interesting.

EQ - 62

Don't take it so seriously! My SQ isn't much higher than yours, and I don't think having a high EQ is bad. *chomps floating cupcake and promptly falls asleep in your lap*

You scored about how I did.

Also, you seem interesting. May I friend you?
Vicki: HOTcha!hermorrine on April 17th, 2003 03:34 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! Any girl who's a geek is a friend of mine. :D *friends back*
expetesso on April 20th, 2003 04:59 pm (UTC)
I scored similarly, on the EQ anyway. (My SQ was 36.)

Completely separate from that, you seem exceptionally intriguing. May I also add you to my small list of friends?

Exceptionally intriguing?? Flattery will get you everywhere - of course you can! *adds back*
