Systemizing Quotient

Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen’s Systemizing Quotient, Revised.

Scale: 0-150. Male average: 61. Female average: 52. Me: 101. I’m sure Jen also scores well above average on this assessment as well.

I recall taking a similar test years ago, and the results were comparable. Clichés like, “a place for everything, and everything in its place” were made for those of us that suffer from a high systemizing quotient.

  1. A friend recently read this post and found a Systemizing Quotient assessment online, with an 80 point maximum. I did my assessment on, where they assess based on the “Systemizing Quotient-Revised Version.” The revised version was first published in Brain Research in 2006.

  2. I just scored 98 on a 23AndMe. They explain at the same time: “individuals with Asperger’s syndrome or high functioning autism scored about 77 on average.” My guess is that a lot of people in technology score high on this scale.
