    I get the feeling from these questions that someone with severe social anxiety would wrongly get the impression that they're autistic
    Perfectly possible, aye. They're a little too categorical and a bit blunt but I suppose that's the nature of the beast, to some extent :beard:

    I scored 19 yet actually have a diagnosis.

    I suspect that this test is more likely to be accurate with younger people/adolescents who have yet to (fully) develop their own coping strategies/mechanisms. My answers would likely have been very different a decade ago.

    Female, scored 38. The autism is strong in this one, apparently.

    I haven't actually been diagnosed with any form of autism, though I have had teachers suggest that I might have a "mild form of autism" or aspergers.

    I think that there are differences between being quite introverted and being autistic. A lot of introverted people, who do not have autism, taking this quiz might score high, I think I'm probably one of those people. Who knows? Maybe I do have autism.

    Following on from How Narcissistic are YOU?, do you sometimes find yourself wondering: 'Am I a little autistic'? :teeth:

    Autistic: characterised by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts

    If you're unsure, perhaps try this short Autism / Asperger's Quiz. Having done so, please select the appropriate poll option as per your score:

    • NOT autistic: 0-29

    • POSSIBLY autistic: 30-33

    • LIKELY autistic: 34+

    Feel free to post your score in the thread of course, and comment on how this differs from your expectations, if at all (mine didn’t)!
    I Got 33. I answered as truthfully as possible. Excellent, I knew there was something wrong with me.

    Funny how the low-scorers tend to have duckface avatars. What's that all about?
    That there is a correlation between pulling a duck face and being diagnosed Autism?
