Presentation Posting

I decided to do my presentation on the restrictions that our perceptions of gender has on the individual. These perceptions of how men and women typically think, I.e. men are typically left brained, women are typically right brained, are not actually indicative of how people actually process information. I took two web quizzes that claimed to tell me whether I thought more like a man or woman, and I scored right in the middle. I wanted other members of the class to take the quiz and compare their results. I was hoping it would start a conversation about whether the results were actually in line with how they really processed information, and whether that may be due to gender differences that are scientifically determined or socially programmed.
