Gender Genie

Interesting... This neat little program claims it can guess the author's sex by the distribution of words in text. At least it guessed my sex correctly, but it did make the grave mistake of thinking that one of the people on my blogroll (right) is a male, even though I'm pretty sure she's a lady :).

Hooray for stereotypes.

Fascinating. I submitted five samples, out of which two were classified as "female" and three as "male" text.

I have no idea what this tells about my thought patterns. Perhaps I'm just one very confused puppy. :-)
