Masculine or Feminine?

Your result for The Bem Sex Role Inventory Test...


You scored high on masculinity and low on femininity. You have a traditionally masculine personality.

Take The Bem Sex Role Inventory Test at HelloQuizzy

This doesn't surprise me at all.........

  1. Androgynous. Also, not a shock.

    As Dave Barry once said, "A little bit of both, but not enough of either"?

    It said I had a 'strong personality', and yet I was almost all 'often' and 'sometimes'.

  2. I'm not sure how I feel about this but I can't say I'm surprised.

    Your result for The Bem Sex Role Inventory Test ...

    You scored 33% masculinity and 40% femininity!

    You scored low on both masculinity and femininity. Your personality includes characteristics of both traditional sex roles, but your gender is not strongly defined.

  3. I think this just goes to show that you can't categorize any character trait as strictly masculine or strictly feminine. It's just a way to pigeon-hole people, and mock them or discriminate against them when they don't show the characteristics that are expected of them just because of their gender. Add in that not everyone who has male genitalia identifies as male, not everyone who has female genitalia identifies as female, and all of the people who fall somewhere else on the spectrum of sexual identity, well, I think it's pointless to say that certain traits are only masculine or only feminine.

  4. @nonegiven: Weird. Androgynous isn't "undifferentiated"?

    @mrs.millur: 'Strong personality' is probably just shorthand for 'exhibits traits traditionally defined as masculine'.

    Did anyone get a 'strong personality' and 'feminine' at the same time? I'm tempted to go back and change my answers, just to find out.

  5. Your result for The Bem Sex Role Inventory Test ...Androgynous

    You scored 67% masculinity and 60% femininity!

    I have taken several "tests" like this online over the years and I am never feminine.. this is as close as I have ever been.
