Testing the Empathizing–Systemizing theory of sex differences and the Extreme Male Brain theory of autism in half a million people | PNAS

Being in no position to verify, rebut or refute this finding, I simply offer it to you, kind reader, along with my brief comment.

In the largest study to date of autistic traits, we test 10 predictions from the Empathizing–Systemizing (E-S) theory of sex differences and the Extreme Male Brain (EMB) theory of autism. We confirmed that typical females on average are more empathic, typical males on average are more systems-oriented, and autistic people on average show a “masculinized” profile.

I thought so.

Meanwhile, the data shows the rate of hospitalization for those over 50 has plunged (CDC). The New York Times now admits “New York City’s public schools have seen remarkably low virus transmission compared with the citywide rate of positive test results in the months since the nation’s largest school system reopened for thousands of students” (NY Times).
