After I took the test, these were my results:
You are done! Here are your scores:
Your Empathizing Quotient is 32. Baron-Cohen (2003) suggests that this means "you have a lower than average ability for understanding how other people feel and responding appropriately".
Your Systemizing Quotient is 17. Baron-Cohen (2003) suggests that this means "you have a lower than average ability for analysing and exploring a system".

Both were lower than average, but my empathizing score was almost twice as high as my systemizing score!
Perhaps this was why I said, "I'm not like other boys" when I was in elementary school and found the girls more relatable than the boys, by and large. I wouldn't call myself an empathetic person, but a lot of the systemizing tendencies mentioned in the quiz sounded completely alien to me. I mean, there are really people who think about the aerodynamics when they're taking a flight on an airplane?!?
