LOL it's just a test mates. I am officially "diagnosed" as having Asperger's and believe me, I went under a large barrage of tests, which included many, MANY physical tests. Total time of all the tests were a whole week, and that was many, many hours.

PS. For all those diagnosed by a psychiatrist, psychologist or therapist by simple guess work and a few basic tests, I'd suggest you get a proper diagnosis by a professional team. I had at least 6 people working with me over the week. with a lot of building up to that stage and a lot of support after (which went down hill oops).

Just because you guys are lacking social skills does not mean you're an aspie!

Not very accurate at all. Social phobics will generally answer similar questions in which an aspie would, but that's only because they are very limited.

So as I did it today, I got 32 points. Of course itīs just rough, because with many questions you donīt know what to answer, if definitely, or slightly.. But I think itīs about correct.

50 questions isn't much. Try 900. Best bet if you think you may have Asperger's is get a professional team that deals with diagnosing ASD (autistic spectruc disorders) to take you through the vigorous tests.

i've read about asperger's and have a lot of the issues they have- sensory, routines, stacking etc... i seriously wonder if i am affected by it. it would at least be nice to go through the tests to either find out if i am affected by AS or to rule it out. where did you go to get tested? autism spe******ts? many people are not diagnosed until adulthood. also females are much less likely than males to have had it detected and diagnosed.

I scored 25 - "above average". My brother and I got sent to see a psychiatrist when we were teens and he decided we were both aspies - we saw it in a letter he sent our mum. I only spent about an hour with him though and was deliberately avoiding eye contact with him (probably one of the things he picked up on) because I just didn't want to be there! Nothing came of it and we didn't get any further information on it or any help. It always seems like the same story in my life - I function well enough most of the time that my problems get overlooked and I don't receive any support, but I don't function well enough to achieve anything or get much enjoyment out of my life. I'm sick of struggling along and feeling like I'll never do the things I want to. I just wish sometimes that I had the guts to go to a doctor and scream and make a fuss and tell them that my life is often an utter nightmare because of the fear and anxiety and depression! I always talk quietly and calmly and hold my emotions in as much as I can and they just give me pills and pat me on the head and tell me to come back in a few weeks for a review... Maybe there really isn't anything they can do though :(

I got 32 :/ I also had a counsellor who told me i definitely didn't have aspergers or high functioning autism, but i still think i do and this test proves it. Still, no need to get bogged down by labels :P

I'm always told that I'm "normal" by my psychiatrist or counsellor. It's very annoying when you know that you're far from normal, and that you've never been normal.

If you want bigotry and fundamentalism and naked ape chest beating, you can't do better than starting with ayatollah Richard Dawkins.
