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.

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?
