Deep Release

Women in Technology Jobs have "Male" Brains According to An ongoing study by, an online personality testing and career and education resource site, supports the notion that women in technical careers have "male" brains. Female test-takers with technical jobs scored 34 percent above the systemizing quotient (SQ) average of 1,038 women who took an identical test in a Cambridge University (UK) study. This latest finding demonstrates clearly Professor Simon Baron-Cohen's caution against stereotyping. The key to his Empathizing-Systemizing theory is that your sex does not determine your brain type.

Women in technical careers have "male" brains, according to an ongoing study by, an online personality testing and career and education resource site. Compared to the original study completed by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen of Cambridge University, female respondents scored 34 percent above the systemizing quotient (SQ) average. This finding will no doubt fuel the controversy that has raged during the last year over the classification of brains as "male" and "female." asks respondents completing the Empathizing-Systemizing personality tests to classify their jobs as "technical" or "non-technical." Women who regarded their careers as "technical' scored an average SQ of 69.7 compared to the female average of 51.9, and male average of 61.2, in the Cambridge study.

Individuals (male or female) with a "systemizing" brain tend to be driven to "analyze, understand, predict, control and construct rule-based systems." More men than women have systemizing brains and, simply because of this, the systemizing brain has been called the "male" brain. It does not mean that women cannot be systematic. By contrast, men or women with an "empathizing" brain tend to be driven to "identify another person's emotions and thoughts, and to respond to these with an appropriate emotion." More women than men have empathizing brains, but it does not mean that men cannot have empathy. Perhaps the real controversy is over the use of "male" and "female" as the categories.

"Males' and females' brains are different by nature," agrees Louann Brizendine, author of The Female Brain, although it is not clear if this supports or contradicts the Empathizing-Systemizing theory. A "one size fits all" approach would be debatable because it is possible to find men with empathizing brains and women with systemizing brains. No psychology researcher investigating the Empathizing-Systemizing theory with the tests would claim that all respondents with high SQs are male or that respondents with high EQs are female.

EQ SQ tests inform respondents of their natural tendencies. Armed with the knowledge, they can then make education and career choices more suited to their personalities. It is encouraging that women and men in technical jobs who tested at report higher average systemizing scores than the 2006 Cambridge sample which comprised of students from a range of disciplines. This would support the assertion made by that individuals with high SQs are more inclined towards technical careers. centers on the Empathizing-Systemizing Theory of the male versus the female brain types and how this knowledge can be applied to life choices to make more informed decisions. Systemizers and empathizers can find information and resources related to education, educational programs, and career choices.
