There is enough ambiguity here that labeling and context are necessary It doesn't matter whether 30%, 50% or 70% of users think this is male (vs female or gender-neutral). There is enough ambiguity here that the infographic will fail to communicate gender effectively so context and labeling are necessary to make it effective. This Nielsen article ...

Just label it! The beauty of donut charts is the ability to include explanatory and informative labels. You have the informative part there, but you've left out the explanation. Try something like this:

'Appropriate' is not something I'd consider, does it work well? Tought to say, can you canvas users for their opinion? I'm a user and my opinion, without seeing the finish screen, as long as the donut is titled along the lines of "You scored:" then it could work.

Would something like this work: The idea is the main circle has up to 3 time minutes displayed to show a quick look of what the different times are for travelling.
