    No they don't and is an insult to suggest they do.
    Well, it's a spectrum and we all fall on it somewhere. What I think they were meant to say is that we all have some autistic traits and that is fair to say, given it isn't an on off switch as much as it is a gradient.

    I never said that. It's an insult o suggest everyone has it. You don't.
    You don't know that. This test is not a diagnosis nor is lack of a diagnosis indicative of not having autism.

    I understand this is a personal issue being a person with autism but you're a one of the TSR Support Team now-- come on...

    What would be the point of diagnosing people if we all had it?

    To establish that there a pervasive inability to function well in society, according to certain pathology and characteristics. Hence, disorder. This is established by scoring over a certain threshold which is deemed to be sufficient to consider somebody might have difficulty according to a certain cluster of traits. That, of course, doesn't negate that we all have some of those traits. That does't mean we're all autistic, though-- I did not say that.

    People seem to treat it like a badge when really it's an indication that your traits are severe enough that you might need help/support.

    Aspergers isn't something you can just overcome
    True enough, although children do respond positively to some interventions e.g. diet, lifestyle, pharma :holmes:

    Partner has already said he suspects I have some kind of autism, but I've not got it checked out.

    12 - but honestly, I'm probably on the spectrum somewhere :lol: I can sometimes be pretty repetitive I guess, and a little more introverted than usual. I love socialising with friends a whole lot more than strangers, which is probably what *doesn't* count

    Your score is exactly half that of the previous poster. How does this make you feel?

    Were you similarly autistic then you'd likely feel all warm and fuzzy inside (due to the numerical pattern)

    But patterns are a thing of beauty :daydreaming:
