Is your brain male or female?

Well, I hardly knew that there was something like male and female brains till someone sent me this forward with a sentence in it. I was to count the number of Fs in it. There were supposed to be six Fs, but I counted only three. Then followed the explanation. It seems that the male brain cannot process the F in OF. So, all people with male brains count only three Fs and all people with a female brain count all six Fs. So, it seems now, I have a male brain. But I am a female. I have absolutely no desire or intention to become a male. Odd, right? What about you? Ever heard of this stuff? What do you think about the gender of your brain? Cheers and happy Mylotting.

Yeah, men and women tend to process some types of information differently. I've never heard of the "count the Fs" test as a gender-related thing, though, just a general brainteaser. I've heard about brain gender stuff and done a few online tests out of curiosity. I usually get 50/50 or lean slightly towards male brain, but I'm female and perfectly happy with it, so I don't put too much stock in it. I don't think whatever stereotypical gender roles your brain has are very important - it's how you use it that is.:)
