    16. Probably normal if not above average unless you're on a site full of autists like this one. Btw looking at the post data the slightly agree/disagree options are redundant and have no affect on the score.
    The term autist is offensive as its almost always used in a negative way.

    I got 19. As someone who had Aspergers when I was younger (but improved dramatically, much to the experts' disbelief), this is very encouraging! Just so you guys could have a success story once in a while...

    Yh, I know the test isn't scientific, but the experts agree...

    I took this test and got 8... I knew I was quite bad at this sort of thing but I didn't know I was this bad. :cry:
    Except you'd increase your result considerably with a little practice. I've ASD traits and scored 38 in this test but am high functioning, partly because I've been able to raise emotional intelligence/empathy to the conscious level and treat it like a problem solving exercise :teeth:

    Going to rant here as I want it to be seen. I don't want to start a thread on MH and have it get delayed by admin.
    Clearly only the only thing you need to be in the spectrum is this:
    An intentional or subconscious desire to avoid events that involve other people, through disruptive or other means, especially at a young age.
    if it is easy for a child to learn not to have certain behaviours or actions, then he or she is not in the spectrum. Otherwise that desire is set in stone; his (more likely to be a he anyway) social age never grows and he can never be taught any other social techniques that come easily to 99% of humans. So the NAS and other well - intentioned charities are just wasting their time really; making people aware of autism only increases the stigma against the autistic, no one is willing to accommodate them because of that inherent desire to avoid which is detrimental to society. And they'll never be able to take charge of their own lives because of that.

    This seems quite accurate, I got a score of 49 and I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 6-7 years old

    Weird, because I was diagnosed on the autistic spectrum pretty high when I was young.
