    Very much recommend taking this test. It has given me new insight in how Aspergers think.
    This test was also recommended by our school psychologist! My hubby scored high on the test, so we know he has Aspergers too, just like our son. But sadly I am just a mere Neurotypical (average) person ;o)

    I just took the test and only scored 17…..hmm and I thought I was far more quirky that that! I am still sure my son’s AS comes from my side of the family. 🙂

  3. I scored 38 this time – 37 a couple of weeks ago so fairly consistent score for me. 4 other separate AS tests all point to the same conclusion I’m an Aspie 🙂

    WOW I feel left out…..I felt I would do much better on the test…..I can even feel when I’m being quirky at times….oh well I will have to settle for just having an Aspie son……so will have to live vicariously through him. 😉

    My score was 36/80, makes sense to me. I grew up as an alien in the world I lived in, but I survived. If you are an Aspie, you understand that.
