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.

Re: Asperger Syndrome Test - what is your score?
People are misdiagnosed all the time by limited tests such as this.
ADD can be oppressed creativity, or just not ready for kindergarten.
A person goes through many stages of development and get nailed these days during normal maturing as aberrant, rather than a creative temporary extreme.
A person can be emerging from an abusive family situation trying to make their way in the world and score extraverted when the truth is they are over-anxious to please. Learning social appropriateness the hard way since early learning was not appropriately taught.
They can go introverted with a spell of panic attacks.
Men and women express differently at certain stages and situations in life.
You can have a male rager full of testosterone who once had a creative role in society like building homes and sculpting stone and designs on lead glass. It's just energy.
You can have a generous naive woman having babies and gardening in full bloom until her husband deserts her and she has panic attacks and grows cynical. Hormone levels play a big role.
Then maybe learn to be more philosophical.


Until we realize other people don't really give a shit about you and stop trying and simply be who we are.

If someone has real damage from vaccines or has classic symptoms of real asberger's it's more than obvious. Symptoms could include obsessive compulsive components, attention to number patterns to quell anxiety, etc..
Flying off with little impulse control, that sort of thing.
Inability to have adult relationships of any kind because of oversensitivity and more narrow limits on spending time in the company of any other people.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 969156





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!

The Geek Syndrome

Autism - and its milder cousin Asperger's syndrome - is surging among the children of Silicon Valley. Are math-and-tech genes to blame?

By Steve Silberman


Nick is building a universe on his computer. He's already mapped out his first planet: an anvil-shaped world called Denthaim that is home to gnomes and gods, along with a three-gendered race known as kiman. As he tells me about his universe, Nick looks up at the ceiling, humming fragments of a melody over and over. "I'm thinking of making magic a form of quantum physics, but I haven't decided yet, actually," he explains. The music of his speech is pitched high, alternately poetic and pedantic - as if the soul of an Oxford don has been awkwardly reincarnated in the body of a chubby, rosy-cheeked boy from Silicon Valley. Nick is 11 years old.

Nick's father is a software engineer, and his mother is a computer programmer. They've known that Nick was an unusual child for a long time. He's infatuated with fantasy novels, but he has a hard time reading people. Clearly bright and imaginative, he has no friends his own age. His inability to pick up on hidden agendas makes him easy prey to certain cruelties, as when some kids paid him a few dollars to wear a ridiculous outfit to school.

One therapist suggested that Nick was suffering from an anxiety disorder. Another said he had a speech impediment. Then his mother read a book called Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals. In it, psychologist Tony Attwood describes children who lack basic social and motor skills, seem unable to decode body language and sense the feelings of others, avoid eye contact, and frequently launch into monologues about narrowly defined - and often highly technical - interests. Even when very young, these children become obsessed with order, arranging their toys in a regimented fashion on the floor and flying into tantrums when their routines are disturbed. As teenagers, they're prone to getting into trouble with teachers and other figures of authority, partly because the subtle cues that define societal hierarchies are invisible to them.

"I thought, 'That's Nick,'" his mother recalls.

Asperger's syndrome is one of the disorders on the autistic spectrum - a milder form of the condition that afflicted Raymond Babbitt, the character played by Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. In the taxonomy of autism, those with Asperger's syndrome have average - or even very high - IQs, while 70 percent of those with other autistic disorders suffer from mild to severe mental retardation. One of the estimated 450,000 people in the US living with autism, Nick is more fortunate than most. He can read, write, and speak. He'll be able to live and work on his own. Once he gets out of junior high hell, it's not hard to imagine Nick creating a niche for himself in all his exuberant strangeness. At the less fortunate end of the spectrum are what diagnosticians call "profoundly affected" children. If not forcibly engaged, these children spend their waking hours in trancelike states, staring at lights, rocking, making high-pitched squeaks, and flapping their hands, repetitively stimulating ("stimming") their miswired nervous systems.

In one of the uncanny synchronicities of science, autism was first recognized on two continents nearly simultaneously. In 1943, a child psychiatrist named Leo Kanner published a monograph outlining a curious set of behaviors he noticed in 11 children at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. A year later, a pediatrician in Vienna named Hans Asperger, who had never seen Kanner's work, published a paper describing four children who shared many of the same traits. Both Kanner and Asperger gave the condition the same name: autism - from the Greek word for self, autòs - because the children in their care seemed to withdraw into iron-walled universes of their own.

Kanner went on to launch the field of child psychiatry in the US, while Asperger's clinic was destroyed by a shower of Allied bombs. Over the next 40 years, Kanner became widely known as the author of the canonical textbook in his field, in which he classified autism as a subset of childhood schizophrenia. Asperger was virtually ignored outside of Europe and died in 1980. The term Asperger syndrome wasn't coined until a year later, by UK psychologist Lorna Wing, and Asperger's original paper wasn't even translated into English until 1991. Wing built upon Asperger's intuition that even certain gifted children might also be autistic. She described the disorder as a continuum that "ranges from the most profoundly physically and mentally retarded person ... to the most able, highly intelligent person with social impairment in its subtlest form as his only disability. It overlaps with learning disabilities and shades into eccentric normality."

Asperger's notion of a continuum that embraces both smart, geeky kids like Nick and those with so-called classic or profound autism has been accepted by the medical establishment only in the last decade. Like most distinctions in the world of childhood developmental disorders, the line between classic autism and Asperger's syndrome is hazy, shifting with the state of diagnostic opinion. Autism was added to the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders in 1980, but Asperger's syndrome wasn't included as a separate disorder until the fourth edition in 1994. The taxonomy is further complicated by the fact that few if any people who have Asperger's syndrome will exhibit all of the behaviors listed in the DSM-IV. (The syn in syndrome derives from the same root as the syn in synchronicity - the word means that certain symptoms tend to cluster together, but all need not be present to make the diagnosis.) Though Asperger's syndrome is less disabling than "low-functioning" forms of autism, kids who have it suffer difficulties in the same areas as classically autistic children do: social interactions, motor skills, sensory processing, and a tendency toward repetitive behavior.

But that's not a surprise. People scare the hell out of me. And I'm a weird bird. Classic geek/nerd type.

I truly have a photographic memory. Ever since I was a kid, I could "take a picture" with my mind, and then "call up the page" and read it like a book, scroll up and down, study it, etc. I was 30 years old before I realized other people couldn't do that.
