The Wrist Test

    Someone claimed that looking at a person's wrists was the easiest way to tell whether that person was male or female. So I made a test. It ended up being harder than expected - there's a severe shortage on the net of close-ups of people's wrists :rolleyes: - so the test didn't turn out as nicely as I'd hoped, but it's really just for fun. Anyway...

    Does each wrist belong to a male or female?

    I'll post the answers after arildno has taken the test.

    I would say that 8 is female, but for the others, I won't commit myself. I give up.

    I got one wrong, #1. Number 5 had me seriously confused though. I thought originally male, but seeing that little bit to the left in the picture made me go female. After seeing the picture I now see why the confusion.

    I had no idea about the whole wrist thing.

    7 out of 10. Not too bad I reckon, but I should still avoid drag cabaret club nights for the time being.

    I can't find pictures online. Looks like I'll have to grab my camera and find some real subjects. This may take a while, hopefully. :biggrin:

    Well, to be honest, I didn't look. I'd like to get my hands dirty on this one.
    Well, I'll try for the first 6 primes, but I don't know if I can handle the 7th. Eek.

    Yes, 13 (6th prime) ought to be a sufficient pool to choose from.
    It's your birthday tomorrow, right?



    So, I'll assume the test is ready on Monday..

    Oh, I was speaking of inches. I forgot that some of you guys use that silly, logical metric system over there, so it may not have been so obvious.
    Yes, I'll be 51. Monday? I'd better get started then. :biggrin:

    And yes, Tom Cruise is airbrushed, but they ran out of paint before they got to the brain... it's just air.

    Here are my guesses.

    1: Female
    2: Male
    3: Male
    4: Female
    5: Male
    6: Male
    7: Female
    8: Female
    9: Female
    10: Neither, it is a painting. I guess you could say it resembles what god's wrist would look like in the eyes of michelangelo


    edit... Yeah I was off a bit :cry:

    I don't know if wrists are all that great to go by. There are plenty of women with masculine looking hands and plenty of males with feminine hands. Is it a proportion thing?
    I can generally tell by the face alone. Oddly the men that I see that have extremely feminine facial features are usually straight and the men I see that dress in drag rarely look all that feminine. Second is hips and legs. There are very few men who have hips that can match a womans unless they look like a waif. Though there are women who have hips that can match a mans.
