Written by a man or a woman?

  1. Came across this site before which is quite interesting. It analyses blog front pages and aims to decide if the writer is male or female.

    http://www.genderanalyzer.com

    Ran the front pages of a few regular posters on this forum with mixed results.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. I MUST try this, thanks!

  4. It worked with mine. Hoorah for being stereotypically feminine, I guess?

    Does anyone happen to know how exactly this works?

    Does anyone get any answer other than 81% Woman?

  6. I ran it on 3 blogs. Mine came up as 71% male.

    The other two had different percentages but were wrong.

    It says AI in the blurb. That my or not be true. This site probably uses some sort of similar technology

    I'll warn you now, loads of people I know have wasted huge amounts of time playing with it.

  7. I'm apparently 55% male.

    That could have its advantages!

  9. Hi Ian,
    My blogging tips blog content results were - We think http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com is written by a man (69%).

    My personal development & self improvement blog content results were - We guess http://thistimethisspace.com is written by a woman (55%), however it's quite gender neutral.

    Thanks for posting this. :) I shared the link on another forum.

  10. @timethief Yours was actually one I ran. I told it is was wrong.

  11. re: the blogging tips blog
    I told it that it was wrong also.

  12. It works :)

    http://bokunosekai.wordpress.com (69% woman)
    http://kamekroten.wordpress.com (73% woman)
    http://novroz.wordpress.com (can not be decide because it is written in Indonesian language)
    http://novroz.blogspot.com (80% woman)

    I wonder how it works? maybe by seeing the pictures

  13. But it didn't work for my friend''s blog...it said it was written by man ;)

  14. http://cafedog.wordpress.com/ is 65 percent female.
    http://echopen.wordpress.com/ is 51 percent male of "neutral".

    If this site could see me, it would see a big burly, hairy man.

    Fun idea, 'though.

  15. http://www.jmcartee.wordpress.com is 57% male, but it can be neutral.
    Wtf?

  16. Cute - I had to laught at Raincoaster's result after my question the other day on another thread!

    We think http://teamoyeniyi.wordpress.com is written by a woman (62%).

    They think I'm a woman, but they are not really all that sure. That's OK - I've been told before I must be a man because of the way I write, so I wasn't at all surprised to only just make the grade.

    Clearly speaking of "my husband" doesn't register that maybe I'm "the wife".

  17. My other two pages came out 52% male (but quite gender neutral) and a whopping 82% male (it is an IT one).

    On that note, I am going to go and paint my fingernails and curl my hair. Will I still need a bra in the morning, I wonder?

    It works!

  19. Interesting. It was correct for me.

    I wonder whether it works more on word choice or on grammar? Because either can be indicative of gender.

  20. Interesting site! It said:

    We guess http://thislittlethingcalledlife.com is written by a man (56%), however it's quite gender neutral.

    I am a man and I do try to make it appealing to men and women so it's nice that this program recognises this!

  22. Mine got 69% female, but I'm a guy.
    Ran it on two blogs written by girls, and got 86% and 81% female.

  23. I didn't bother to correct it, because I'm interested in why it made that decision in the first place.

  24. Got it right (61% female) but I'm not that impressed as the title is Momfog. Thought it would be more certain. :-)

  25. 74% female. Guess it's actually pretty accurate

  26. @raincoaster
    I didn't have the time to research but I'm guessing it's keywords in the text and perhaps tags and categories may be what's being used.

  27. P.S. This is on the site below the box we type our URL into:

    About GenderAnalyzer BETA
    Man and woman silhouette We created Genderanalyzer out of curiosity and fun. It uses Artificial Intelligence to determine if a homepage is written by a man or woman. Behind the scene, a text classifier hosted over at uClassify.com has been trained on 11000 blogs written by men and women. In our lab it seems to works pretty well, we want to see how it performs on the web! We hope you like it! If you have any questions please contact us! http://uclassify.com/

  28. If I'm understanding the scoring system correctly presumably a 50% score is the ideal.
