writing - slave

writing test

Found via kunstarniki. It's a tool that analyses your writing and attempts to determine whether the author is male or female. Link here.

For the first one, I put in most of a fiction tidbit that I wrote recently (not part of AGL, maybe a piece of a new story).

Words: 1024

Female Score: 1677
Male Score: 1139

For the second, I pulled in about half of the lastest AGL chapter.

Words: 1645

Female Score: 1962
Male Score: 1773

But the scores are a lot closer than the first time. The first passage is a love scene, the second is setting up a battle . Random chance? Or not?

Finally, I tested it on a fairly long LJ entry.

Words: 728

Female Score: 1266
Male Score: 1540

Interesting. I would think that personal writing would be more likely to come out correct, not less.

The author of the site claims that the algorithm should have an 80% hit rate, but the results on the site are lot farther off, not quite 60%. Hm.
