    For those of you interested in reading more about empathy, Zero Degrees of Empathy

    You mean, slightly read the question then pick a choice almost at random? :ahee:


    49.. That'll do nicely :smug:
    Yeah :ahee:

    I actually didn't realise this year that the last section had changed, which is why the instructions said IMPORTANT, READ...but I just clicked next, and then didn't know what I was saying about myself :facepalm2:

    OP should really make a poll with each of the score ranges and the type of subject/s people study (I got 48 - hooray for being average!)

    Apparantly I have Aspergers? Hmm, I think maybe I couldn't answer some of the questions how I wanted to. I don't think I have Aspergers

    The last section being DA or the unmarked one?

    Since I didn't notice a change in either :teehee:

    30. Slightly lower than what I expected, but probably in the right region. I'd have thought it'd be mid-30s.

    It'd be interesting to see whether this score relates to other similar tests. My systemizing quotient (Systemizing Quotient) is 30, which is bang on average for a male, and my personality type is INTJ (Personality Test).

    I do wonder about how accurate these [definitely agree/slightly agree/slightly disagree/definitely disagree] type questions are for me because I'm fairly neutral for a lot of the questions and hardly ever go for the 'strongly x' option.

    Physics applicant btw.

    When you get to that section, you really don't give a **** tbh

    Wasn't Simon Baron-Cohen working on this? I went to a lecture which he did at the Royal Institute of Great Britain and he talked about it a little

    I'm not sure that's right though, scoring-wise. I don't know how the scoring system works but from the answers I supplied, that number seems abnormally low.

    That would be interesting. What do you think the outcome of that would be?
