So, yeah, I’m pretty behind. Again. I wish I could say that it was because I’ve been doing something amazing, or even the justifiable answer of ‘I’ve been sick’ or something, but the truth is that I work 12 hours a day 6 days a week. When I finish up there, I just have an incredibly hard time picking up a shitty book that I hate after a long day. I worked the same hours when I started doing this, but we’ve been busier, so I’m more tired when I get home than I was, plus my hatred for this book has increased significantly.
I’m in no way planning to stop doing them, I’m just not sure exactly when I’ll get the next post up. In the meantime though, I came across this. It’s an empathy test. I decided to answer the questions as accurately as I could for Wanderer based on the information we’re presented in the book of her thoughts, feelings and interactions with the other characters. And this is just for fun, not something I’m seriously planning to use to back up all my statements in the reviews that Wanderer’s actually a massive bitch instead of the saint everyone in the book keeps claiming her to be.
Here’s the results:
Your Empathizing Quotient is 19. Baron-Cohen (2003) suggests that this means “you have a lower than average ability for understanding how other people feel and responding appropriately”.
Your Systemizing Quotient is 6. Baron-Cohen (2003) suggests that this means “you have a lower than average ability for analysing and exploring a system”.
The score for empathy is out of a possible 80. In fairness that is higher than some I know of.
Feel free to take the test yourself and share the results in the comments if you want! See if you’re more empathetic than the character that’s supposed to be a saint! I’ll be back with a new post asap!
