    0 - 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20)
    33 - 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42)
    53 - 63 is above average
    64 - 80 is very high

    It'd be very interesting to see if there's a correlation between 'taking a maths-intense subject' and 'being very bad at empathising' :awesome:

    I am stunned by all these people getting 60+! Although I guess it's good that everyone so far is higher than me

    Hahaha, we should get everyone to take this test at the STEP thing next week for research!

    I just took another test on the same website and my 'Autism Spectrum Coefficient' (whatever that is) is 27. 11-22 apparently is average...

    And yes, all these crazy 60+ people and their empathy! <20 is where it's at!

    :woo: YES. That would be amazing I imagine some of us will be capable of socialising (I'm actually a weirdly outgoing person in social situations) but, it being mostly mathmos, I'm hoping for some right weirdos

    And yes, all these crazy 60+ people and their empathy! <20 is where it's at!
    What do they do with their lives? Is it not horribly overwhelming, being aware of what the people around you are feeling all the time? Does it not get in the way of productivity? How does one manage to think clearly if one's always thinking about how other people must be feeling? They confuse me, I'm afraid :awesome:

    I do sort of live to make other people happy, and that's what makes me happy, so I suppose that ain't bad
