EQ (emotional quotient) and SQ (systemizing quotient) tests measure the degree to which men and women lean toward empathizing or systemizing thought processes. These psychological tests designed by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Sally Wheelwright and their team at University of Cambridge, England offer test-takers insight into the way their brains work. Armed with their scores, test-takers can then pick careers best suited to their brain-types. Now is a perfect time for anyone mulling over a career change or who needs help choosing a career path to visit EQSQ.com (http://www.eqsq.com/), an online personality test resource for career choices, and take the personality tests.
Visitors to EQSQ.com can take the EQ test and SQ test separately. The two tests together take about fifteen minutes to complete. The feedback provided may help quiz takers discover how to find their dream career. In addition to the psychological component, some questions are designed specifically to help reveal the best link between personality types and career choices:
- Are you male or female?
- Is your job technical or non-technical?
- Do you think you are an empathizer or a systemizer?
- What is your highest education level?
- What is your job or career?
The EQSQ theory does not promote gender stereotypes despite the fact that, generally, more men than women are systemizers and more women than men are empathizers. However, the fact that 17 percent of men have an empathizing ("female") demonstrates that broad stereotypes are inaccurate while also giving a rationale to apparent gender discrimination in the workplace.
Along with the free EQ and SQ tests, EQSQ.com (http://www.eqsq.com/eqsqtest.php) hosts a regular "Weekly Whims" column and the "Vivre La Difference" blog where visitors discuss career choice and brain-type psychology.
EQSQ.com centers on the Empathizing-Systemizing theory of the male versus the female brain types. The tests were developed by professors Simon Baron-Cohen and Sally Wheelwright at the University of Cambridge, England. Systemizers and empathizers can find information and resources for education, educational programs and career-choice.
