I'm going to make the rest of my family take this tonight, though.

20/44 ??WTF?? You say? i had to take it twice. The first time, in my normal day to day mindset or mode. I also have a learned/practiced mindset I call 'geek mode'. It's me, on a little caffeine, with my headsets on, focused on something, usually a computer problem. It takes me 20-30 minutes to get into it, and while in it, I am anti-social and completely focused on something. I can usually only keep this up for 3-4 hours at a` whack.

30 also. Not suprising.

  1. At least I'm in good company.

Now I feel bad that I'm so low. There were a bunch of questions where I could tell, "OH YEAH, my answer on that one is FOR SURE the Asperger's answer!" But I guess not "enough" of them to fit in around here. ;-)

26 - I think my prediliction to numbers and patterns of numbers tipped the scale for me. I've also learned that my attraction to patterns of numbers does NOT translate to good performance in mathematics.

An attaction to geography, for me, is "spatial autocorelation" - which is "all things are interconnected but nearer things moreso" and is also known as "The First Law of Geography".

I really get off on fractals which also sprang from geography (How long is the coastline of Britian?).

Diane, I got 14. Don't know if that should make you feel better or worse. I am the self-appointed least-geeky reader of flutterby.

Mike's dual score doesn't surprise me in the least. I'd insert some Jekyll & Hyde comment in here but that wouldn't be very nice, would it? ...But what if I THOUGHT it was nice???

I took this when it first came out, which was about five years ago. As I wrote in an email back then:

this quiz ... seems to test more for introversion than for Aspergers or Autism. So, someone with AS who's less introverted might score lower than a misanthropic introvert. So while Asperger's has already been diagnosed to run in my family, I may just have been in a crappy mood at the entire world when I scored 42.

Today's result: 45.

It appears age is not improving my introversion, my mood, or my AS.

  1. But the test does seem to be conflating Intoversion with Aspergers.

Yeah, "Autism Spectrum" covers a lot of territory, and there's now a sizeable faction that doesn't put Asperger's on the Autism spectrum any more either.

I got a 13.

31 - I'm not really surprised. I am a walking stereotype. :)

Embrace your geekdom!
