Okay, so a bunch of webloggers took this test -- one of those online quizzes that’s designed to reveal this or that about the test taker, most of them, as you probably know, deal with various elements of human psychology -- and shared their results.

This particular test, called The Gender Test, from Spark, apparently is designed to determine whether the test-taker is a man or a woman based on a series of seemingly irrelevant questions.

According to results collected by Jeanne D’Arc of Body & Soul, the test’s accuracy is decidedly mixed.

Anyway, I thought, what the hell, I’ll take the test too.

It turns out I’m a man. The results say so, “with 86 percent accuracy.”

Glad that’s settled.

I wonder what, if anything, I would have written about this had the results turned out differently.

I guess we’ll never know.
