OK, we are biased by having a lot of males in the test sample (only two women in the sample of 18), but I think we can say with a rather high likeliehood that the percentage androgynous are significantly higher than in the mean population. Aren't they supposed to be the smallest group?

There is a psychology paper waiting to be written in this. ("Personality and Gender Role Boundary Transgression among Neophiles"?)
