Default Autism Spectrum Quotient - self test!

I did the test and got 37 points, which means that I may have Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism!

Do the test and post your result:

Autism Spectrum Quotient

My score:

"Your score: 37
0 - 10 = low
11 - 22 = average (most women score about 15 and most men score about 17)
23 - 31 = above average
32 - 50 is very high (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 35)
50 is maximum"

Diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, by the way.

Ok guys, my psychiatrist is a clown, he always tells me that I'm "normal". That it's "perfectly normal" to be (completely) socially isolated and never having a relationship with the opposite sex. What should I do now, continue with him? He is supposed to be a very experienced psychiatrist. Please, I need serious answers.

Keep in mind that there's more to Asperger's (or NLD, PDD-NOS and so on) than the obvious lack of social skills (allthough it's probably the worst part about the conditions).

Asperger's syndrome is also characterized by narrow interests, sensory issues, routines etc.

I got the diagnosis after an agreement between my therapist and my psychiatrist. Asperger's wasn't a diagnosis before 1994, and therefore, many of the older psychiatrist know very little about it.
