My numbers are 135/95. I'm the mother of a diagnosed Aspie, and I'm not sure how much of this result is down to my also being potentially Aspie, and how much is due to my being somewhat-excessively self-aware and self-critical. A poor self-image can lead to a high score on most of these questions.
Given that my son and his (almost certainly) Aspie father always score much lower on these things than I do because they can't recognise any of the obvious-to-others traits in themselves I'm always a bit sceptical!
I found myself answering "I don't know" on some of the "do others think..." questions.
Oh, I should clarify - I don't mean the questions that say "do others think...", I mean things like "are you frightened by the noise of a motorbike?" and so on. Both of them will deny point-blank that they have X reaction to Y, even when I can easily induce X reaction in them by facilitating Y.
I got about 90 Aspie, but I felt much more than that when I got to the question about correcting grammar / spelling etc. and wanted to shout "Yes! And that means YOU! and your ethical questions which are badly phrased !!!"
Heh. I work on the basis that Leif Ekblad probably needs a little leeway, but really, how hard is it to get a native speaker to proof something?
Hehe. Me too!
My boss sent me an email today saying we needed to get some box's [sic] mended. I came so close to replying with "what thing belonging to one box needs mending?"
(It's extra tempting because I only work there 12 hours a week, so getting the push for being sarcastic wouldn't be horrendous. Though she seems to be under the impression that I'm not only full time, I'm willing to spend all my waking hours and half of my sleeping ones concentrating on the job. The aforementioned email contained a number of instructions, mostly about said box's [sic]. Fine, but it arrived just as I was leaving work, and I won't be in again until next Wednesday, so I have no idea what on earth she expects me to do about it)
God, yes! I couldn't even figure out what most of them meant!
"Do economic corruption affect just the ones that corrupt?" Wha?
I got bored part of the way through, what might that indicate?
The thing about most of these personality/neuro quizes, as Bopeepsheep aluded to, is that the results vary greatly with ones self-awareness. This can easily lead to getting the answer that one wanted.
OK, I'm game.Your Aspie score: 68 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 132 of 200
You are very likely neurotypical
Your Aspie score: 92 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 111 of 200
You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits
Ha. That might have something to do with being a girl.
Isn't that the Bat-signal?
I think it is a Spiderman web shield
Is there any science involved here or is the source a "let's bash the aspies with our preconceptions" sort of thing?
200 questions! Got bored after 10.

Really interesting. Thanks for that :)
The large number of questions about morals disturbed me. They had been added in since the first version of the test on this site.

I don't mean to offense anyone, but sometimes all this aspie/add/adhd/etc seems just so ... 'in'? As in, yeah, maybe people in earlier times 'had that' as well, but it was simply considered a personality trait? And today it's something to cure, to surpress with medicine, to be used as an excuse for all sorts of things. This is NOT directed at anyone, it's just a thought (from someone who would most likely diagnosed with a ton of these things if she would bother to be tested).
