Is there a neurological difference between women and men? And how does this idea relate to conditions such as high-functioning autism? This rather interesting article by neurologist Simon Baron-Cohen explores these rather interesting questions of neurology and psychology.

Also, be sure to take the test to determine your empathizing and systemizing quotients. Interestingly, I scored rather low on both— 13 EQ (considering the asocial creature that I am, not entirely surprising, though I would have expected it to have been somewhat higher), and 28 SQ (about the average for males).

East is east and west is west…

Hmm; while browsing through my server’s access logs, I discovered that I’m on the first page of Google results for “directionally challenged”— #10, to be precise.

I suppose this could be considered an honor, in some twisted sort of way; if nothing else, my fellow directionally-impaired people will be able to find my site easily so that they can commiserate…

And the #1 hit, incidentally? It’s a site dedicated to Ryouga Hibiki, a character from the anime series Ranma 1/2 who’s more or less the personification of the directionally impaired. Needless to say, he’s a character with whom I associate rather well…::grin::
