Read up on Asperger’s Syndrome at WikiPedia, if you don’t already know what it is. I just took a 171-question quiz. Apparently, I am average, although it is pretty clear that in every category (especially “Talent”), I leaned slightly in the Aspie direction. That is, for almost every section, my neurotypical score was lower than my Asperburger score. UPDATE: 20100201: The test now has a version 2, so I took it again. I will place my new results below the old results.

Version 1:

Your Aspie score: 100 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 96 of 200
You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits

Version 2:

https://i1.wp.com/clint.sheer.us/download/imagedump/20100201_aspergers_results.png

Your Aspie score: 106 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 107 of 200
You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits.

NOTE that the quiz allowed me to answer things on a 0,1,2 scale. The first number is my number, the 2nd is what Aspies choose on average, and the 3rd is what neurotypicals choose on average. In looking at most individual questions, I almost always chose the “aspie” answer, yet the test says overall I dont’ have it. That observation in and of itself is interesting to me — where’d I go wrong?? :)
