An Aspie Quiz [Jan. 14th, 2010|03:54 pm]

    Disclaimer: This questionnaire should not be taken as a substitute for a professional evaluation.

    A few of the questions may be pure research questions that may or may not be connected to the autism-spectrum. There are also a number of control-questions to evaluate sincerity of answers.

    Some of the questions in this quiz are phrased so that an Aspie answer is 'yes,' and some so that an Aspie answer is 'no'.

    Your Aspie score: 160 of 200
    Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 43 of 200
    You are very likely an Aspie


No surprises there, apart from a few questions about "doing evil"/"doing good", which might be the research or control questions they mentioned.

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.
