    I got a score of 26 not autistic
    That's quite close to the threshold, no? :holmes:

    Considering I was diagnosed with Asperger's a few years back, I was surprised by my score of 22. But I've changed a lot since then.

    Got 22 points, although autism was diagnosed. Does that mean I was changing to a 'normal' guy in my years of age?

    Not too surprising, considering that my brother has a diagnosis and I've had comments from teachers saying that it would "make sense."

    24, not autistic. I get the feeling from these questions that someone with severe social anxiety would wrongly get the impression that they're autistic.

    Not really. I am a diagnosed Asperger too, but I have lesser than 30. So what does that mean in your opinion?

    30 is 'possibly autistic' so still makes sense. Alternatively you might have been misdiagnosed

    I HAVE 32!!!!
    Some of those questions were quite relatable like the one about others thinking i'm rude :O.
    Never been diagnosed with anything but it says i'm possibly Autistic, to be honest, if i was diagnosed with it then apart from the burden i would carry round of being diagnosed with it (psychologically believing myself to be), It could work in my favour to get extra time on exams! .

    You won't automatically get extra time in exams.

    WoodyMKC - there's a lot of crossover between things like Autism and social anxiety. It's not that unusual for adults to be misdiagnosed with things like social anxiety first.

    I scored 30. I guessed I would roughly score around there.
