I took the quiz before the link got posted just by googling aspie quiz. It's the first hit.
Kallyn, I think googling may disqualify you. It makes way too much main stream sense....not that I
thought of it.
This is not a bad quiz, as these things go. But we all tend to interpret self-administered tests in different ways, placing more or less importance on certain areas. I have been in the field of autism spectrum disorders for over thirty years, and humbly suggest that I'm more of an expert than your average bear.
I've always thought of autism as being on a continuum from normal to bizarre, and there are some aspects of my own behavior that fit somewhere on that line. I cannot stand labels and tags in my clothes, have to adjust crooked pictures wherever I am, even if it's not appropriate to do so, have a great deal of trouble filtering out extraneous noise. Hate having my personal physical space invaded even by good friends.
But socially and communicatively, I'm fine. It's just the sensory stuff that's weird for me. Incidentally, my score was: Asperger'
s 52 of 200, neurotypical (now there's a really interesting label!, it's almost worse than the oh so cutesy term "aspie"), 152 of 200.
Ah, enough. If those of you who are contributing to this thread are serious about a possible diagnosis, please check with your state autism society to see about resources or feel free to pm me with questions about how you might find additional help.
And remember that there is a lot of room for everyone in this world.
