    I got 46, what do i win?

    I've never met anyone i can relate to, literally 29 with no social activity whatsoever. On happy days i do some maths, and on sad days i just hibernate. The loneliness is real.

    I already self-diagnosed my autism and PTSD and anyone saying that that's not valid is classist and ableist scum.
    You do realise that this isn't Tumblr right...

    I scored 40. Do you think getting a high score on this test would be a reasonable incentive to talk to someone about this?
    If you want to, then yes, I think so. I scored high on these types of quizzes. That led me to reading up about Autism, and I recognised a lot about myself in the descriptions of the traits. Eventually I spoke about it with my GP, and had a long follow-up talk about it. She referred me for an assessment and I was indeed diagnosed with high-functioning ASD.

    Of course, it is good to keep in mind that this is just an online test with a few questions, that takes a couple of minutes to fill out. So it doesn't necessarily mean anything. It can just be a starting point to look into things.

    I found the quiz to be highly repetitive.

    I scored 29 which is only just in the not autistic part.... I don't believe I am autistic at all so agree with my results however I think the reason for my score being high is because a lot of the points are relevant to people with anxiety difficulties.

    Thanks, I may consider it if I feel like the difficulties I have would be better managed if people at sixth form, for example, understood that I have a problem if it turns out I do. Otherwise there's not much point because I'm content with how I am.

    33 but I'm diagnosed with ASD so:erm:
    That test is real bad though because not all ASD is the same and that is just prolonging stereotypes.

    I was thinking that, for example I know of multiple autistic people in each box for the reading fiction question.

    I have been tested for autism and Asperger, and have neither (have obsessive compulsive personality disorder instead). I scored 28.

    I got 17, in a way I think I scored more as some of the questions bordered on anxiety more.
