What does your score mean?
Generally, the higher the score the greater your natural ability for that trait. However, the EQ test has 40 questions compared to 75 in the SQ test. As a result, although the unprocessed quotients may be used for comparing each trait ability between individuals, the absolute scores do not tell an individual if he or she has a greater tendency to empathize or systemize. A calculation taking into account the quantity of questions in each test is used to determine a person's brain type along the following continuum:
- Extreme Empathizing (Extreme E)
- Empathizing (E)
- Balanced (B)
- Systemizing (S)
- Extreme Systemizing (Extreme S)
|Brain Types of Experimental Control Groups|
|Respondent||Extreme E||E||Balanced||S||Extreme S|
The important factor to consider is not your absolute score, but the difference between the two. This indicates whether you have more natural ability as an Empathizer or a Systemizer. If your scores are about the same for your EQ and SQ, then you have well balanced empathizing-systemizing capabilities.
