The male and female brain have differences but is still very similar in many ways. It has often been debated women are smarter than men but now we have research and are going to do an experiment to test this theory. Men and women brains are different and in some ways women are smarter than men. An example of this comes from the cortice part of the brain. Women and men have a great difference in how thick their cortices are. Women tend to have thicker cortices, thicker cortices tend to relate with higher scores on general brain and intelligence tests. Then during research it was found the thickness varied more for men than women. At the same time men have higher brain volumes in other regions of the subcortical category. So things like hippocampus which is for memory, amygdala for emotions, decision making, and memory, striatum for learning, reward processing, and inhibition, and lastly the thalamus for processing and sensory information to other parts of the brain. That’s not all though, men and Women brains are even more physically different. The male brain is connected better with the front and back side of the brain which makes the man think more logically and rationally, this also makes the man better multitasking. The woman brain is wired better with the left and right sides but woman have bigger Corpus Collasums (That is what transfers data between sides of your brain) which makes the woman brain connected better. Women tend to have larger limbic systems which controls emotions. So for our experiment if we see that males have task oriented or more broad answers while females have more emotion connected answers this would explain why. Males and females also perceive color differently. Women tend to see colors better while men need a longer wavelength to see the same color better. Some hues males find hard to identify the difference between. An example could be red and green or yellow and blue. This would play into our experiment because after knowing this information we would need to decide if we are going to use all ink blots of one color if so which color because some colors like blue are associated with sad feelings which could skew our data. If we were to use ink blots of different colors it would need to be neutral colors to prevent non bias data. Traditional tests used 5 black and white, and 5 in color. Male eyes focus in on smaller things while female eyes focus more on color change. This is something we’d have to take into consideration when choosing the inkblots, whether its one color or many and also if the inkblots are going to have many small blots or one big blot. Now that we know about the male and female brain we need to get into what the inkblot test is. The inkblot test is commonly referred to as the Rorschach test. It’s a psychological test with 10 inkblots, 5 in black and white and 5 in color. Specifically five black ink, two are black and red ink, and three multi colored ones with a white background. They used to be all around in the 20th century in a game called Blotto and then they started to be seen for psychological tests. It was first used on patients with schizophrenia, patients suffer with a disability to behave clearly. With things and effects on how to feel and think clearly or correctly. When patients were inkblot tested for the notes on their response included letters like W,D, and C. C meant that the participant included color in their response, D meant they went into detail on the inkblot, and W meant they referred to the whole photograph. When asking the interviewer should ask “What might this be?” to show no bias in the question so the answer is more pure. During the tests you should sit next to your patient and place the cards on a table in front of you for no distractions or interference from sitting across from each other. The test can be given to people ages 5 and up. Then for interpretation one wild or outlier of a response shouldn’t affect the overall test findings. Then deeper into how specific they are with things like maybe any movement they saw or a reflection or shading and things like that. Lastly we have a huge factor which in personality and beliefs. Some possible bias we will have to look at is even ourselves the interviewers. For example if a male says he sees a bra an interviewer might write it down as a piece of clothing, but in the male brain a bra is more sexual. While to a female it’s just clothing. So attention to detail is very important here. This test can also be used for personality tests so before we do these tests we should get to know the person a little bit. We also have to look for other influences for example anxiety and/or depression which can suppress happy emotions and influence the response of the participant. Or even things such as gay participants. Bias is not just from the participants either the interviewers can have bias too as stated earlier. Things like question form, inkblot type, no details when taking notes, seating, and the body language you give off for all of these actions.
