n = 671,606, including 36,648 autistic individuals "Our results provide robust evidence in support of both the Empathising–Systematising and Extreme Male Brain theories"
Our latest work on two theories - Empathizing-Systemizing theory of typical sex differences (ES) and the Extreme Male Brain Theory (EMB) is now out: In ~ 650K individuals we test 10 predictions from the two theories, & test and validate 7 of them in 20K.
Testing the Empathizing–Systemizing theory of sex differences and the Extreme Male Brain theory of autism in half a million people
"autistic individuals, regardless of their reported sex, on average were 'masculinized'"? big-N EQ vs SQ extreme male brain study, free
Validation of Empathizing–Systemizing (E-S) theory of sex differences in 670K people Remember, fetal testosterone predicts E-S and E-S predicts STEM career (both are actually better predictors than sex).

An interesting new paper on the Empathizing–Systemizing theory of sex differences and the Extreme Male Brain theory of autism.
Did this journalist read the study? It's a correlational study of four questionnaires, gender, and diagnosis. Each questionnaire had 10 items. The biggest gender difference was 2 points on a 20 point scale. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...
