Aspie quiz because my friends are doing it.

May I say that was the longest LJ quiz I have ever taken? I think it takes an Aspie to find that enjoyable. ;) Oh and if you want to take this incredibly long quiz share in the experience.

Your Aspie score: 42 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 174 of 200
You are very likely neurotypical

Other than ooh pretty graph. I find it interesting in that it asks you about a lot of behaviors that I personally don't have but that C does such as getting very absorbed in a task and tapping one feet when agitated. I think most of the men I know lack the ability to multi-task. I don't think this makes them Aspie. I don't know how culture difference and brain difference combine to produce these differences.

In my readings and observations, Asperger's, autism, and other diagnoses on the spectrum seem to be a collection of behaviors that, on their own and/or less intense, are nothing out of the ordinary. And many, many more males are diagnosed on the autistic spectrum than females; I don't think anyone knows why. It could be cultural, it could be something to do with brain development, it could be genetic.

Yeah hard to know. The one female Aspie I know we all know pretty much as soon as she was a baby. No facial affect at all though by other signs certain things made her happy or sad. She seems quite different from how you describe your brother or other boy Aspies.

I have noticed from being with Little T and in the ASD community that I do have mild sensory issues that affect my movement disorder and a general difficult with motor learning. I think my entire Aspie score was related to sensory or motor issues.

I took it out of curiousity because I've been suspicious, and yes, I apparently have it. I scored 172/200 for Aspie and 70/200 for neurotypical. I tried posting my results, but they didn't come out like yours; I just got a link to my pretty graph. Owell.

The graph on the web site is wrong. Copy the link between [img] and [/img] and use insert image to insert the graph. I'd be curious to see what your graph looks like.
