Like I said, I don't know for sure that the test I took to establish my gender traits was the MMPI. I think it may have been an entirely different test. I have just taken so many of them over the past ten years that I forget which was which. I took the gender characteristic test around 4 years ago, and I know that I took the test specifically for that reason. It asked a lot of questions, I think rated something like 1-5 to represent a little to a lot of agreement. The only specific question I remember was dealing with which magazine I'd rather read: a car magazine or a family-circle style magazine. Then again, it might not have had a rating scale -- it may have been an either-or thing. I just don't remember. Any ideas?
