Social Media and Stereotypes

Apparently, I Am A 24-Year-Old Boy….?

That is according to this Apply Magic Sauce psychometric test, which I found a while back via Hello Giggles.

Age, gender, and personality results of the test.

Seeing as I am actually s 27-year-old woman, I can only assume that the reason for this is due to the amount of sci-fi and technology related things I like on Facebook compared to the number of beauty and home decore related things.

If that’s the case…… HOLY STEREOTYPES BATMAN!!!!

I sinceriously hope that isn’t the case here, but in all honesty, I can’t thing of any other reason for this thing to guess that there’s an 84% chance I’m a man.

Here’s some more of my results:

Intelligence, I'll take it! Life satisfaction? Ha! Yeah right. Not even close. I'm not at all satisfied with my life.

It showed this first, and I thought it was kind of funny, especially compared to the result if I'm a female.

Apparently there is a higher chance that I'm gay, if I'm a man, than there is if I'm a lesbian. I must have just the right amount of girly likes on Facebook for that result. LOL!

Hahaha!! The relationship status.... Yeah. I'm chronically single.

And then there’s the fact that it doesn’t think I’m in the IT industry….. Hello!!!!! Web developer!!!! Although, web designer is sometimes considered to fall under “art” so I’ll take that one. But I really don’t post/share/like a lot of web related things on my personal Facebook because more than 90% percent of my Facebook friends are NOT techies so it wouldn’t really be worth sharing. All my web related things tend to go on Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, and LinkedIn, what I share things whoever publicly or with my fellow web nerds.

What I would really like to see though, is something that looks at all your social media and doesn’t assume that girls are not nerds. Then maybe most of the results would actually be closer to accurate.
