    I scored 12. It's weird since they used to think I had it. Probably since I was really shy and was very good with numbers.

    20.

    I'm not very into keeping lists and obsessing over details and I'd say I'm very empathetic and pretty perceptive when it comes to others' feelings, but I'm awful in social situations.

    I got 7 which is the fourth lowest score I've seen (3, 4, 6&7).

    Not surprised by the result tbh. Would be interesting to pick the brain of someone who got 0 to see what the most normal person acts like 😂

    Hence why it would be interesting to meet them and see how they act to see what if quantitatively most normal is the same as qualitatively most normal :P

    I just got a score of 39.

    Anyone got higher?

    I am autistic anyway, I know that before I took the test.

    I imagine they would probably be some sort of elite social butterfly with an empathy radar constantly on full blast,so they'd probs come across as a bit weird, but a different kind of weird

    You're forgetting that they also cant remember any strand of numbers and have no strong interest in anything in particular so to a certain extent they wouldn't be very capable academically either.

    i.e. Low IQ but high EQ

    For some reason I feel like I'm describing a puppy and not a person 😂

    I'm not comfortable making the assumption on academics as not everyone in the converse situation scores is necessary capable academic all despite some tendencies that would lend themselves to that

    Yeah, that's also true. Of course there's a lot of people not on the spectrum who are academically gifted, I was just pointing out how on that mini-test that to score 0 you would have had to put strongly agree/disagree on all the options that alluded to non-autistic characteristics. So to score 0 would put you on an extreme as well, just one that is viewed as neurotypical :P

    But even though I was honest on the test, it's easy to understand which boxes you should tick if you want it to come out as a lower score for autism
    Not if you're a spectrum kid! :gah:

    Got a 34, but I've already been diagnosed with ASD, so go figure.
    I scored a bit higher, yet have never been diagnosed with any such thing :innocent:
