Re: Asperger Syndrome Test - what is your score?
I scored a 38 this time, but think I did it when this thread was originally done...I'll have to go back and check.


38


But I already knew it. The Temple Grandin interview on NPR introduced me to the concept of autism...functional autism...and further study allowed me to finally have some comfort in my own skin.

I don't go to professionals any longer, paid too much to be misunderstood for TOO long.

Re: Asperger Syndrome Test - what is your score?
I scored a whopping 39! I tried to be as honest as I could. I believed this was a possiblity when I watched a show that featured someone who had it they were explaining to the person what it meant to have it. (I was like: they could be describing me...) I find it very hard to look at people when I talk to them. Get more interested in facts, than the actual "things"...Think very logically, etc..

Re: Asperger Syndrome Test - what is your score?
Ok ,,

I came in at 18.

What does the score represent?

1dunno1
Each time a person stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he or she sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. And crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. Few are willing to embrace the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.

Re: Asperger Syndrome Test - what is your score?
The problem with this test is that it doesn't take into account why you answered the way you did.

For instance, I put that I would prefer to go to a library rather than a stage performance (I think that was the choice) because I like learning. Entertainment seems like mental masturbation. I find that I enjoy having self-directed activities because it allows me to absorb things faster.

Another point of the questions was whether you understand social cues. While I can get them, I choose not to because I just don't give a shit about people's hidden meanings. I KNOW people think I'm weird, but I don't value fitting in with them and their shallow pursuits.

In other words, while I do have trouble with social situations, it's because I don't care enough to make them go smoothly. I believe this test could have been worded differently to make it accurate.

I think there are a lot of people out there who are withdrawn from society, they are socially reclusive for a reason. Around like-minded people, those with something interesting to share, I am quite outgoing and friendly. I just don't give a damn about popular culture.

I scored 36 and I am definitely not dysfunctional, nor do I have Asperger's. I think more intelligent people have problems interacting in society -- just the same as an average person would have being in a room of mentally challenged people.

So what does it mean if you are an extremely social day dreamer type that wants everything to be epic and you really can't concentrate on things. What's the opposite of aspurgers?

My husband is aspergers. I would score very low.

Be very careful, all you asperger's people, who you marry (if you do). The emotional aspect of marriage is not necessarily what you will want.

OH, you are definitely an Aspie. No doubt, especially the way you had to put so much energy into explaining yourself.



Your base misunderstanding is your assumption that having this implies dysfunction in any way. Even the explanation before taking the test has the disclaimer that not every Aspie has trouble in life.


For the MOST part, I don't either. I am quite adaptable, but have found that some things merely take 1000 times the energy than I'm willing to invest for a return that OTHERS value but I do not.


I've had people try to argue that I am NOT autistic...then in the next sentence go on and on about how weird I am. One fellow tried to damn me to his imagined solution, taking some pill that some doctor forced upon his misunderstood nephew.



Do not wrestle with this...it is OK to be weird. Most Aspies are serious over-achievers once they find their niche. Perhaps you found yours early...congrats!

No surprise, really. I was diagnosed as low functioning autistic as a child.

You must mean high-functioning autistic :)

31 here.

I would've probably scored higher around 10 years ago or so. But I've become better at dealing with your kind.

And that stuff about not recognizing people's emotions or whatever is BS to me... I can tell what you're thinking, and exactly what kind of POS you are the moment you open your rotten mouth. That's why I have these autistic tendencies, I've become totally antisocial.
