Took the Aspie test again...

Just finished the test again and got only slightly different results:

Your Aspie score: 160 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 51 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie




Dyslexia-score: 13 of 20
You might have dyslexia


I must have increase some of my perceptions during this last year. Which makes perfect sense since I've been working on that among other things.

EDITED: Here's a link to the actual test - http://www.rdos.net/eng/Aspie-quiz.php

There are a few people like that around so I'm not surprised.

The thing I like about this whole ball of wax is that it proves you can improve your intelligence and change your mind about certain things.

I've always maintained that intelligence is an improvable trait unless there's physical damage or the equivalent.

"I've always maintained that intelligence is an improvable trait unless there's physical damage or the equivalent."

in college, i took a psychometric course. one of the more radical, and to my mind, a most ridiculous definition of intelligence was that intelligence is the thing that intelligence tests measure.

That exact reason is why IQ tests never quite sit well with me. All that number means is how much worse or better your are than the creator of the test. ;-)

Re: Hrm...
Heh, thanks :) Actually I was about to write back to say I found it.

Interesting quiz, but I seem to have minor issues with the leading structure of the questions - but that is the minor gripe. There were a few questions on there that would seem to lean towards aspie when answered in certain way, however the reasons were not aspie related - they tend to come from the jerks we knew so well in school (i.e. "Does it bother you when people walk behind you" which gives me an aspie scoring of 1.42). Because of the lack of taking into account development environment, you got to admit the testing can become skewed.

What I think would be interested in is how aspies relate on the Myers-Briggs testing...

But outside of those issues, I guess I am "neurotypical":

Your Aspie score: 82 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 129 of 200
You are very likely neurotypical.

Dyslexia-score: 5 of 20
You are unlikely to have dyslexia.

Re: Hrm...
From my experience and from others' words I find that most aspies come across as INTP in the standard Beyers-Briggs but really there are no hard and fast rules.

As for your results you may be a little twisted but you are definitely NT from what I've known of you.

Re: Hrm...
Yeah, I can see how INTP would fit. The I and T being the key.

Not sure on the twisted part...maybe just a little odd I think.

p.s. I sit at INFP on the M-B scale.

thanks for the link
Your mom (I work with her) told me about this quiz and I had to follow the link. I too am very likely an aspie, but I kind of knew this! I've done a little research and always see myself in the descriptions!
153 out of 200 Aspie.....71/200 neurotypical

Thanks for the link!

you are not an aspie - just spend way too much time in front of screens
There is so much going on. Like maid bars and clubs and places to go. Get out of the garage and away from the screens and just start talking to people. People who don't read sci fi or care about Anime. People who love to drink and drink and get plastered drunk and fall over on the ground.

Its amazing that even most of the people here in Tokyo don't care about Anime. Even though the new Evangelion movie was out, they didn't watch it. They just went about living. See, your problem isnt this self-diagnosis, its just that you are an Otaku, plain and simple. Switch over your reading to Ayn Rand and Lord Jim and get out there!

Re: you are not an aspie - just spend way too much time in front of screens
My friend you don't have a clue about my internals. The test may just be a random test but there are a great many other mountains of evidence for this diagnosis.

As for getting out and about we're in Montana this week. A place of no phones and hardly any internet. So we'll be getting plenty of time outside over the next ten days or so. I will however be secluding myself two days at least to fix my math issues. (They're getting in the way of my design plans and this is the only quiet time I can get to fix it.)

And I'm not surprised that the majority of people in Tokyo don't care about anime - the majority of people in the US don't care about anime. It's definitely a minority like many other interests.
