Do i need a neurologist or something like that? (Please excuse my poor English)

I have a split decision apparently
109 of 200 Aspie
95 of 200 Neurotypical
Wonder how common this is, I have had a lot of trouble with my life but then there wasn't always an easy thing to point to that would help explain my social oddities and seeming lack of empathy or understanding what was going on with people. Very frustrating.

Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 93 of 200

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 116 of 200

You seem to have both neurodiverse and neurotypical traits

Well, if you are older then say, your twenties, this is fairly common. Many of the traits that we have become hidden under a fascade or mask we create in order to fit in better, and as we age, some of us start to forget how we were as youngsters.

I am a 43 year old lawyer and have recently been looking into whether I may have Asperger's. I scored a 35 on the AQ, 16 on Empathy. On this test I scored a 112 Aspie and 109 NT. It says some Aspie traits and some NT traits. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

(Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 134 of 200; Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 93 of 200; You are very likely neurodiverse (Aspie))

i can see generally what this means, but i'm unsure of what it means in terms of whether i have aspergers or if i just have some traits of it?

Not sure how to feel about this or how to interpret this exactly.


looks like you're on the far end of the aspie side in all categories! and there are small spikes in the perception and relationship categories on the neurotypical side.

I have always been more comfortable being with animals than with people. I took the Asperger's quiz today and here are my results;
ASPIE SCORE 175 out of 200
neurotypical 27 out of 200
"You are very likely an Aspie"
My Diagnostics listed so many different things!
Aspie talent 8.7 out of 10 "Gifted"
Neuro. talent 0.8 out of 10 "ADD /ADHD"
Aspie Compulsion 8.8 out of 10 "OCD"
Neuro. Comp 0.4 out of 10 "No diagnostic"

Neuro. social 0.1 out of 10 "Social Phobia"
Aspie Communication 8.6 out of 10 "Tourette" , "Stimming"
Neuro. Comm. 0.4 out of 10 "ASC Autistic Spectrum Conditions"
Aspie hunting 6.5 out of 10 "Average" "no diagnostic"
Neuro. hunting 2.9 out of 10 "Dyslexia", "Dyscalculia"
Aspie perception 9.9 out of 10 "Above" "Autistics have a difference in perception"
Neuro. Percep. 3.8 out of 10 "Dyspraxia"
Environment 8.9 out of 10 "Psychiatric disorders"... "Diagnosis needed"

I was severely abused as a child, by the parents, their friends & my brother. I guess not having people protect me, or teach me...or relate to me in a "normal" way, could have caused me to not relate to others in a "normal" way. I hate the word "NORMAL" , as I have never felt like I fit in. I was extremely shy growing up, and never looked anybody in the eye. In my Congregation, the elders told me that nobody could trust me, because I wasn't looking them in the I have forced myself to look up...into the eyes of the person in front of me...and it feels GOOD! People like me more now.! It is still almost impossible at times to even get out of bed, just knowing that i have to interact with people & get their frustration & dirty looks. I know it is me & not them...that is what makes it so hard. I want to be considered a nice person. I am considered a wonderful person by those who take the time to get to know me, but then they get their feelings hurt because I cannot pick up a phone & call them. I cannot bring myself to go to somebody's house for a visit...without a month's preparation. I have to "Psych myself up" to believing that they want me to visit them. It is exhausting! I take the bus & train everywhere...and people are too close to me...and it makes me want to crawl out of my skin! I talk to people about the Bible sometimes, but then I don't like the attention it gives me, though it is positive & people are commending me...I cannot be invisible if they notice me. All I want is good friends & to be left alone at the same time! It is two extreme opposites. The diagnosis makes sense. I never thought of myself as autistic...just "different" held down jobs at different times, but never for long. I am an extreme neat freak! I can't stand being interupted. I always think I am right, because I go to the library & check out every book on every subject...because I want to learn about each & every thing! I am a voracious reader! I can read three books in 2 days. I bought 12 books for the summer, but had them read in 4 days! I once was a teacher of my own Preschool, and then was asked to teach at the YMCA, which I did. I loved the "good children" but found difficulty being patient with "Obstinent kids" and their parents. I taught other teachers my methods & was given the highest honor for my classroom from the President of the Snoh. Cnty. YMCA just 3 days before they fired me for my attitude towards another teacher. (I wouldn't back down due to her position of authority)! Story of my life. Even though I know something bad will happen, if I know I am right...I stand my ground. I was given full custody of my daughter in my divorce, because 2 Guardian Ad Litem's decided that I was a better parent than my ex-husband...but 3 years later, while I was in the hospital for "an attempted suicide" (I didn't try to kill myself) my custody was overturned! I was then given "supervised visits"! I was honest about my diagnosis, and the judge said "I have never met anybody as arrogant as you" & then "You'll never parent your child again"! My daughter was 5 yrs young when she was taken away & all I could do was sit at the table with my head down because I couldn't look up at the judge! I was called arrogant for that behavior! I love my daughter! My daughter suffered at the hands of her father, his wife & girlfriends & one step-brother who BTW had full blown Asperger's! I saw his actions and never thought of myself like him in any way. Now I understand him so much better. I can see him & understand him. My daughter forgives everybody who has hurt her, and she tells me "Mom, they couldn't help it." (cry mommy tears here) I am so proud of my daughter! I have learned to feel, learned to allow myself to cry, learned to listen when others talk & try not to interrupt. I am about to turn 50. I am just learning that my artistic talent is a form of "autism". I guess I should say "I am proud of where I have improved as an Aspie". I would like to form a support group in my Community for other Aspie's ! "Be Nice" would be the motto hurting allowed. Are there support groups?

Your Aspie score: 171 of 200

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 27 of 200

I had the same neurotypical score as yours, and I was impressed by your deciphering of your results, but I can't compare mine as our graphs have differing parameters, with mine having Contact and Attachment instead of your

Compulsive and Hunting. I don't know if you can help me to understand the diagram.

How did you arrive at the terms you have in quotes "ADD/ADHD", "Stimming" etc?

I had a very similar childhood to yours, abused by my parents until they couldn’t cope with me any longer and took me to a child Psychiatrist who got them to send me away to Trench Hall, a "special" boarding school, miles away in the countryside, described as "a school for maladjusted children"

I still got in trouble – even at night – I hated being told when to sleep, and was often taken out of the dormitory and made to sit on the bottom step of the main staircase to copy out some of the Old Testament into a notebook, until the other kids were asleep and they decided I was too tired to be a nuisance, allowing me back up to bed.

Aspie Q poly12d.png
Yes, there are support groups ALL OVER (not sure where you are); hospitals have them , the web, and an online resource called ASPIRE  that I have contacted a few times. 
I've been having too much to deal with lately, and it has hurt my relationship with the people I was closest to. No matter how much information is available, they just keep reacting to me in the same ways. I even went so far as to say; This is how I react to stimulus please don't take it personal...but they keep taking everything I do personal, and trying to force me to "behave" in a NT way. The more I try to "pretend" to be "Normal", the more I get stressed...and the more meltdowns I have. I need a support group badly! THANK YOU FOR THE LINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I watched the movie about Temple Grandin, and read 2 books about her and her mother. It helped me to understand why my mother didn't love me, and why she always made fun of me. (She also had a form of autism, and she was having regular meltdowns! She couldn't handle motherhood, and that was the reason she kept giving us away to other people. I feel so much better having read Temple's mom's book.)
I have a tiny spike on my Social score (being 55 now I have learned a bit)

Many times communications improve (mine have in writing, but face to face I am still very awkward.

Some further links: Community



Have you read: The Autistic Brain yet? That is by Temple also.

I had wanted to give you THIS LINK, but I realize it is in Pennsylvania, You could check out to see if your area has a similar program too

I am a 31 year old woman and I in university taking Disability Studies. When we started to learn about ASD and other disabilities, I couldn't get over how much the stories in the sections about ADHD and ASD sounded like my childhood... I have always felt like *something* was "off" but didn't know what. I have had a lot of troubles over the years, especially while growing up, with my parents (behavioral). They recently told me that they were told I had ODD as a child but they felt there was something else too... This "fits"....
I find it all very interesting....

Need help understanding what it means i'm both an Aspie and neurotypical? This is all news to me that i am an Aspie at all.
Hi I have never been diagnosed as aspie but I have with ADD. I'm 19. It would explain a lot, and I have also been told I have many of the characteristics. Can someone help interpret the results?

MANY people either WITH ADD or mistaken for ADD, are Asperies.
ADD, as with my General Anxiety Disorder, can be co-morbids of Asperger's.

IF it interferes with your life, it would be good to get tested and help; if not, the expense of testing (depending on your location) could be high for just being curious.

I guess I am confused? Lol.
OR you are beyond the teen years :-) Many Aspies learn how to "cope" and so their answer are, in some instances, closer to an NT score for some attributes. Or you have some comorbids that mimic Asperger's
I am certainly beyond my teen years. ^_^

Could you please tell me which attributes might be affected by learning to cope so that I can check them against my image? Also, what are the comorbid disorders? I have had several psychologists suggest that I have social anxiety but I don't really fit the criteria.
Darn, I replied below, sorry about that....,
Thank you for letting me know. Can you please direct me to your reply?

I'm in my 20's and confused!
I want to know my state of mind but have some difficulties.

When I was a child, I was an average in learning language pace but sometimes made unique words on my own. I was a very timid child and could not get along with others well. (I have troubles in making friends until now. ) I had tics for some time.. (when I was 5-6 years old) but it was temporal. When I was a teenager, I was bullied often and got depressed. I tried to make friends but my efforts always ended up as a failure. I was often considered as 'odd'.

I am curious about myself now. Am I social phobia? Am I aspie??

Your Aspie score: 163 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 49 of 200
yes, a fairly high score.
My thoughts also....dont know what to do with it.
It depends on your needs. If you can not remain or get gainfully employed; you may want to seek real testing and help from some of the agencies available, or, you can seek out support groups too.
The universe as it were appears to be conspiring to convince me that what I thought was weird dyslexia all these years, might in fact be mild/high functioning Aspergers? Several people I know, people I trust, who have a background in this, have mentioned it enough that I found my way to this test, and got the following results:

Your Aspie score: 139 of 200

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 86 of 200

I'm 49, and to complicate things, I'm an empath. What may not or may not be showing on a persons face, or through their body language, I can read as easily as a book. That's been part of my life as far back as I can remember. Recently read an article that really resonated strongly with me, and sent me down the rabbit hole so to speak:

So, I'm looking into it.
aspie results image.png
The Social spike could be "learned" behavior.
We have a mix in a few of the forums on Facebook too, most can not read (nor look at long) faces, but some, despite this, still "feel what others feel".
Personally, though it takes me longer, when I understand just how another feels, I tend to feel the same just as if not more intensely as the person themselves feel it.
Don't fall for the rumors that those with Asperger's don't feel emotion; we do, but many of us can not risk expressing them as we are either FULL ON or FULL OFF. And full OFF is more socially acceptable. :-)
Dyslexia and other things can be comorbids of Asperger's also.

I've been doing a lot of research and reading. I found this quiz after I joined a forum for aspies and people who are not sure if they are aspies. My husband is pretty convinced that I am one. I'm trying to find a provider to get a diagnosis but not having much luck. Most only work with children. Not sure that I have any specific questions right now, but any advice is appreciated.
Goodhart jlake84 years ago
*chuckle* You are asking an Aspie a general question (any advice?) and I am at a loss for words :-) If it were: Any advice on finding a provider? I'd say I haven't any. But I am a bit lost with generalities :-) Sorry...

Any thoughts?
Well, if you are in your 20's or older, you may have adapted to being/acting more NT (if you are indeed on the spectrum) or you may have some of the co-morbids that tend to go along with being Aspie, without being on the spectrum.
I am currently 14 years old
It is a spectrum. No one is exactly like any other, may not be "clinically" on the spectrum (or you may be) but have many of the advantages (or disadvantages) of it.
Well, there IS the possibility of having what are called co-morbids for Asperger's, but in others are the actual diagnosis.

You are very likely an Aspie

First of all, I remember taking this quiz about 5 years ago and having the score 188 Aspie/11 NT. I'm 20 now and am pretty sure, that for all these years I developped a really well-working strategy to deal with social situations, based on observations and analysis of other people's behaviour. My social life has improved significantly, so I abandoned the idea of me having AS. I acknowledged all that as my personal character traits and get used to living with them (unfortunately mostly by avoiding certain situations).
I feel rather comfortable and safe, but my current partner more and more often is making me realize, that my reactions are far from normal. He puts me in completely new situations, reactions to I haven't learned or copied from someone before. And so the thought of having the AS came back.
As I mentioned, I learned to live with all that weirdness and problems that aren't problems for anyone else apart from me. Knowing that, I don't really need diagnosis. It wouldn't change the way I feel about myself right now. I fear I could start making excuses for my social failures and actually stop trying to be better. But I really am curious. What advantages does the diagnosis actually have in my situation?
IF you have difficulties dealing with employment (or school, depending on age), parents, etc (some are nearly crippled socially, I know I was when younger). Sometimes a diagnosis allows one to be helped by local agencies or government programs.
For me, the diagnosis allowed me to understgand that I wasn't some weird brain box from another planet. I wasn't alone. But you already know that, so for you, it'd just be an unneeded expense

Ive done some Bipolarity tests and most likley have "bipolar light".
I also have tinnitus and explosive noise damage on one ear so I have sensibilites to sound that way, which I guess might skew the test somewhat.

Not quite sure what to make of this but it does explain why I am an utter catastrophy with getting laid and finding a life partner which is something I'd like.

Social situations are weird for me due to the fact that I have bad hearing, Unless Im focused on it I dont pick up on social "between the lines" cues if I have to interact with some one. However i know how to manipulate people if I really have to its just such a bother to do that and I'm somewhat lazy. Also i think it is a moral failure to manipulate people though it seems that is what goes for social interactions amongst others.

But as a passive observer peoples behaviour is crystal clear to me its only when I have to interact in groups that it becomes quite exhausting.
many Aspies are misdiagnosed with bi-polar, or other symptoms ONLY. Having asperger's doesn't mean you can't be bi-polar (or vise versa) :-) I have OCD, and anxiety disorders, both as symptoms and conditions (they are sometimes referred to as co-morbids).

So, I have always felt a little odd. I was horribly shy as a child. I had no friends and really could not take being around my family for long periods.  During holidays and other get togethers, I would make myself comfortable by preoccupying myself with a task (like cooking) rather than socializing.
I have been accused of being too abrasive and not really knowing what that meant. I am super literal and have told people many times over the years that I do not read between the lines very well. I often have to ask "what do you mean" or "I don't understand".  People have commented on the way that I walk, lack of facial expressions and some fidgety behavior.
10 years of waiting tables and 12 years as a police officer has forced me to adapt to social constraints, mostly by mimicking behavior that I realized others found to be more appropriate. I now realize the structure as a police officer was really good for me since I resigned to start my own business, which is not going as well. I am not good at putting my self out there and realized that I might need to find another line of work.
I have also struggled with making connections with other people. I did not have any friends to speak of until my 30's and I still fall on my face with it on a regular basis. Let's not even talk about dating. I feel like I have a harder time with more intimate relationships because it is much more difficult to hide my true tendencies.
I had an incident with abuse at 5 years old and understand how it could effect my behavior. I just feel like my interaction with other people comes more from a lack of understanding, a desire to be different and closer rather than having trust issues and deliberately keeping people away.

Not a surprise! Struggled through childhood & adolescence, never fitting in, never understanding people. I am approaching 40 and have learnt to fit in to some extent and get a job, but talking to people is very stressful and I quite often have to go to bed to recharge myself after being around people or going out of the house. My emotions are limited and, although I have learnt to say the right things, I don't empathise with other people. Although I care about people, if they are not around I generally don't miss them or even think about them. So very few people bother to try to get close because I am hard work! It would be so nice to just fit in and not find every new situation a struggle.
Empathy is not "lost" on many of us, but it is sometimes hard to know when to express it, or even feel it. And fitting in is what we do worst when it comes to NTs; but after 5 1/2 decades, I have learned a trick or two ;-)

I'm not sure what to do or think. I suspected, but... now what? Suddenly, all the difficulties make a little more sense. I read this and I identify SO MUCH with almost everything she posted:

I have so much social difficulty. I've been trying to help myself figure out why and I thought maybe I had bpd. When I was a teen I was diagnosed with manic depression. 
Well, if it interferes with work or getting work, there are resources to help pay the extravagant costs of getting a full test.

Hopefully the image loads. xD

Anyway, some of the things on that test fit me perfectly. I've had trouble trying to figure out why I couldn't handle social things too well. I can't get a job, or have friends - except for the occasional one online who usually disappears after a while, but my biggest concern was always the meltdowns. I've been told I have OCD - which might be true, Bipolar - NOT true, as I never have a high, just the depression and slight mood changes. xD Nothing like Mania. xD I don't know how to go about this. I saw someone on my facebook posting about autism awareness. I didn't think much of it until one day she posted one about high functioning autism. Then, just today, someone trying to help the family mentioned her autistic nephew has texture problems, something I've had my entire life. Today, I decided to look it up. I think it fits. Certainly, not all of it. And I don't know if there is a difference between High Functioning Autism and Asperger's, but they seem to get looped together online, so I'm assuming not? Anyway, I've always had trouble. I never looked into people's eyes, and I remember finding it odd growing up that people knew other's eye colors. It certainly wasn't something I knew, since I rarely looked at people's eyes. xD Anyway. I began to realize it was odd not to look. However, the meltdowns are my biggest problem, currently labeled as panic attacks, but I'm not so sure, as they say you can control panic attacks, and what I have, well it isn't something I can control by some breathing thing. I can't hardly even think during them, let alone think to breathe properly. I just never considered this, as I thought people with autism all had speech problems, and I talk normally. Too quietly and too loudly sometimes, sure, but nothing like monotone or stuttering or anything. I've always bumped into things, and had no hand eye coordination. I was in JROTC in high school and couldn't tell left from right, or read a clock, and learning how to march was immensely difficult, even though other Cadets made it look easy. When I tried working, I was always very slow and couldn't learn things like everyone else did. I was often teased and my manager hated me. In fact, after I quit and my brother later joined, he was teased simply for being my brother. I have zero friends, I have a difficult time around children, love animals to death, and have self taught myself some of the social things. I have always felt, well odd, but this never entered my mind. I thought of Schizophrenia before, because my grandmother has it. I don't know. I think it fits. I don't know if everything was answered correctly, as I didn't understand some of the questions or just didn't know for sure. I hated working for customer service, as I panicked every single time someone stepped into my line, and if a customer yelled at me, I'd freeze up and cry. I dreaded every day at work or school. I could have complete meltdowns for dropping a dish or pan, or saying the wrong thing. I was always the cause of my parent's arguments growing up, and most people thought I was very immature, while I thought I had a better view on life and was more mature than others, because I knew what life had to offer and what to say no to. I had meltdowns when a friend wanted to watch something in the comedy genre I absolutely loathed. This is the closest thing that's ever made sense, but I'm still not positive.
No, one can't be positive without proper psychological testing. At your age, you have developted some ways to cope and imitate and fit in, even if only a little, and so the testing may be a bit longer, and more intense than for, say, a 9 year old. That is not to scare you off; if it REALLY keeps you from employment, here in the USA, you can get help with paying for the evaluation whichever "syndrome" turns out to be accurate.

Be forewarned, and get someone that is DEFINITELY familial with Asperger's so they can recognize it, if it's there. ALL TOO OFTEN the ones not familiar misdiagnose as bipolar, or some other ailment, and their "treatments" normally fail .
How do you find those familiar with Asperger's? How do you know if they are or not? How do you get help to test? I used to have insurance when I still qualified for Medicaid before I turned 21. Back then, I tried to get help to figure out why I was so different, but they always pushed me away, saying temper tantrums were normal, or I was just depressed, or I would grow out of it. They only started taking me seriously when I reached the age insurance was cut off, before that they diagnosed me with Bipolar, but they never actually ran any tests for it, and I don't really fit it. I don't have mania. xD
Well, the only way to really find out is to first ask (or get someone to ask if you can't bring yourself to it), and also ask for credentials.

I was surprised by my results especially as I am over 50!
I didn't know until I was 50. It didn't so much shock me as explain my life and made it make more sense.
Thanks for this, I think it was confirmation of something that I had been suspecting for a while.

You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits

So should I seek out a professional opinion based on my results? Or am I in the "average" zone?
Goodhart I7I4 years ago
It depends. IF some of the aspects that place you on the Asperger's side, prove to be troublesome to your life (school, friends, family, work) then it is good to seek for help. If it is a minor inconvenience, there really is no need to seek help for what you have learned to work with already.

Your Aspie score: 143 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 87 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

Until today I'd never even heard of "Aspie" nor did I know much about Autism honestly. I almost found a reference to it by accident when doing very detailed research on human emotions and the like; as lately my curiosity has wondered a lot about emotion and whether I experienced them like others or not. I have always recognized I was different since I was a kid, and have always had trouble with social interaction, especially eye contact. I usually don't understand most people other that what I process at an intellectual level. I can get completely consumed in my work (web development) and I regularly get really involved in the sciences - Quantum Mechanics being my favorite to study. Others around me, including family, find this all very strange and have vocalized this over the years. I, for the life of me can't understand how they aren't also fascinated with those subjects. I imagine that I am very random to them. I was diagnosed with ADHD two years ago, and have been diagnosed with general-anxiety disorder and depression. I feel both are caused by the regular pressure of fitting in and all the energy I use to put on a facade for society. I am married, for the second time, and my wife (who is incredibly wonderful) has openly told me I often seem more concerned with a solution to her problems than listening to them for the sake of listening (empathy?). I have trouble often being too honest/real for people and I struggle with this. I am extremely open minded and that puts me at odds with much of my family here in the southern US. I need to talk to my doctor on this, but this all opened up a very real explanation for me if this was true. It would be a huge piece of explaining many parts of my life in the past up until today. Very glad I found this and will continue to do more research on it.
I completely understand......I hadn't known about it for me either, until I became 50 (almost 5 years ago), I too am married for the second time, although not as successfully as you apparantly :-) I don't think the problem is being too honest, it's understandint the unspoken rule of what is blunt and what needs to be said. I struggle with that daily.
EddyLiu6 years ago
I have tested on a few standardized IQ tests and consistantly displayed scores of over 130. (146 Max), I dont know if that makes a difference but.. heres my test.
I do not see a link between your IQ and social ability. I am the opposite of your chart and i scored a 160 on an IQ test.
It must also be mentioned that an IQ test measures something that we ourselves do not seem to understand, intelligence.

My chart
Actually, to be honest, IQ doesn't necessarily "intelligence" so much as it measures "certain" abilities based on one's environment. If you ever have the chance, take the IQ test that doesn't lean towards middle class America, and is more suited for those in poorer will be an eye opener I assure you.
I agree. I have been tested (certified) a number of times when i was younger. And scores varied 143 to 166.

But at the end of the day, the tests are focused on how well you can take the test. I guess what I am saying is that intelligence isn't about just one thing. But IQ tests are.

True intelligenc is not just knowing how many squares are in a 5x5 grid, or which 3D object transates to which. Its also about knowing how to use that intelligence. Just as it's knowing how to understand and use our emotions.

But I digress.

Thanks for the view on Ethnic Minorities Goodhart. As someone who grew up well below the poverty line, it's interesting that there are "tests" for each area. For the record, I was on academic scholarships, so I guess that puts me in the white middle class bracket?
Goodhart: can you post a link to one of those IQ tests suited for other areas other than middle-class U.S.?
Here is one developted for Ethnic Minorities.
The vast majority of I.Q. tests, especially the ones on the internet, are complete rubbish. Just earlier this morning I was answering the questions on an I.Q. test that I had stumbled upon and one of the questions was something like: 'If Billy has two quarters, one nickel, two dimes...'

How is someone who isn't American (me) expected to answer this? General knowledge questions are not supposed to be asked on I.Q. tests, they should only contain questions that require one to use one's ability to discern patterns, decipher messages and solve mathematical problems. Thankfully those (the good ones) exist as well, although they are very hard to find.

Even so, the I.Q. number is just that; a number. It doesn't really measure an attribute (intelligence) that no one has even been able to define properly yet, so one should not take one's score too seriously.
Indeed, even legitimate tests given by someone certified to do so, merely demonstrate how well the test taker can take that test.
If you were honest in the answers, it indicates you have almost no aspie qualities at all.
Your Aspie score: 141 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 54 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

Well... I have suspected for a while. I took another test and the score was 34. Aspies tended to score 32 or higher, it said. And I remember reading that females tend to show milder, different symptoms, or something like that. I was diagnosed with ADD a few years back but felt like that didn't explain some things. I had assumed for a short period of time that my above-decent language skills and my horrible math skills meant I couldn't be Aspie, but apparently that is not the case. I also have decent social skills but that's from being in a large family and being forced to socialize from an early age. I work in customer service and it's pretty rough on me. To get through it, I joke a lot and process the customers through as quickly as I can. That's how I have learned to get through social situations, by being funny. But forget small talk. I don't know how anyone does it, especially women. I just don't have the ability to care much about shoes, clothes and who's dating who. I'm never going to be very comfortable in social situations and I am okay with that. My problem with remembering faces is another story, though.

I have high empathy with animals, not so much the humans. I am able to lie and can have hidden agendas though it is rare. I often lie in order to avoid social situations. I don't have much of a problem looking into another's eyes, in fact I suspect I stare too much. For me, it helps block out other details. Although if I am forced to act social for too long, I tend to start blurring out faces, if that makes any sense. I am 29 years old.

Do any of these details mean anything? Sorry about the length. I am confused and don't know where to go from here.

Also, sorry for posting a (much) shorter version in the other place.

I am sorry, I answered your other post before seeing this one.

Yes, your details mean alot, since Asperger's Syndrom is a portion of the Autistic spectrum (which I occupy also) the saying is going around that: If you meet one person with asperger's, you've met one person with asperger's. :-) As with NT's none of us are the same but we share a number of "traits", just not ALL of them, so we are just as human as NT's, and we are not JUST the diagnosis..

I found this site, and took the 'Asperger's Test', thinking that perhaps I had this condition. Now I answered the questions as honestly as I could, without any preconceptions or goals in mind, but at the end of the test when you press 'calculate' I got the message that I had answered too many of the control questions inconsistently! Why?!

Has it occurred to the folks who made this test that perhaps a person could be, in all honesty, self-contradictory or just uncertain about how they are? Different situations call for different approaches and/or attitudes, and in my (not so humble) opinion I think that it is often the case that a scenario is far more complex and nuanced than the simplistic, Yes/No responses we were asked to give here.

I'll take the test again, but I'm not expecting the result to be different. :(

Post Script: I've just now noticed the 'be nice' message below. 'Be positive and constructive' it says. Okay, this may be a stupid question, but could someone here define the terms 'positive' and 'constructive' within this context? What exactly do you mean? I can be 'nice', that means no swearing or insulting others, but the other two?
yes there are some questions that ask similar things that may elicit different/seemingly contradictory responses. these are not the control questions. the control questions occur ~3 times throughout the quiz and are recognizable as such ie you may find yourself thinking 'haven't i already answered this question?'

perhaps you might find it informative to complete a personality style quiz such as the myers-briggs inventory. It may help you identify clearly your perspective so that you pick more consistent answers or it may help you pinpoint in what behaviours you show a open minded flexibility ('contradictory' in small mind speak)
Posiitive: do not degrade a "person"
constructive: calling names and being abusive is not constructive

My original results are:
Your Aspie score: 163 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 70 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

My Second test (I feel like I was more honest here) went like this:
Your Aspie score: 182 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 29 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

I suspected that I have had asperger's syndrome for a few years, but only recently have I tried to confirm my suspicion. The results to both of my tests seem to agree with me, but I would like it very much if someone could help me interpret them.
Well, I can't do a point by point interpretation without being able to see the graph, but the test is fairly accurate, but will not filter out those that aren't honest (I am NOT saying this of you, but that the test is flawed in it can not WATCH you respond),
Hi nnewhouse: My son was diagnosed as Aspie at the age of 45 but we already knew without the official diagnosis. ( I used to say "he's a bit of an odd bod") In fact we only got tested to satisfy a beaurocratic situation. Remember that , just like neurotypical's, Aspie's are on a spectrum. If you have no need for an official diagnosis, then dont. If you need a diagnosis to help with your social welfare of work situation, then do. The general story with Aspie's is that the IQ. is higher than the norm but the social skills are often "akward or missing" and with time they learn to adapt and become more socially aware. May I suggest than you read up everything about it to get a good overview. My best wishes to you.
NOTE: Two tests would never be administered without a gap of 12 months or more because of "practise" and memory corrupting the scores.
I agree %100
Well it says I'm half & half, but here's my graph for some comparison:

as for an IQ test, most of them assume too much to be of very much use....

Any advice about how Can start to deal with this, I feel frustrated about my social life :/
read up on it.....find some local support groups if they exist. It is a real problem when we are young to deal with others socially. I CAN get better, but it is always somewhat awkward.
I just took the test and my Aspie score is 120 of 200 with a neurotypical score of 111 of 200. I seem to have both traits. I don't know what this actually means.

dogwalker515 years ago

I'm finding it hard to get information on adult women with Aspergers. And this was the best test I have found, but I think it may be more directed towards male symptoms (hunting, etc)

My Aspie score is 118/200
Neurotypical score 88/200

But I believe it may have been quite different (higher Aspie) had I taken it early in my life. Being 51, I have learned to adjust to many uncomfortable social norms. But I can remember being much more "weird" as a child and being teased a lot for it.

I'm currently in an relationship crisis which I can't figure out...And one of the biggest issues I am having is that I don't "miss" my significant other or anyone else really when I am separated from them. I don't think I'm a sociopath, so maybe, just maybe it's Aspie.

Any thoughts?
Sounds like a very "sound" conclusion to me (sorry about the delayed answer).

Museigan4 years ago
I'd like to ask about my results -- I am nearing 27 now, and though I move every year or two I have noticed my thoughts and views on many things from others diverged considerably from those around me, I also find it difficult to relate with and understand a lot of people because they seem to be irrational.

Could someone break it down tell me what my results mean? I don't understand how typical my results are or if it means im just an aspie that might be good at hunting? I'm confused.


that one spike on the NT side could be learned behavior in order to hide a trait. This is normal for those older then around 20 or so. Talent: we tend to be focused on ONE thing or just a few.
We normally have difficulty communicating: mispronouncing some words because we've only ever seen them on print, and generally trying to form a perfect sentence ahead of time so we don't miscommunicate.....etc.
Our perception tends to be with the details. We DO see things the NT's miss many times. Hunting, I am not sure what they mean by that one.

It is possible. But if it is interfering with your life, OR if they prescribe meds and they only make matters worse, then yes, get tested. Many aspies have ADHD or ADD.

After reading about it recently, I started suspecting I might have Asperger's. The one thing that made me have doubts is that I consider myself really good at understanding figurative language. Is this the case for many Aspies?

I'm 28 and no one ever suggested to me that I could be an Aspie. When I was in school I was told I could have ADD but the specialist that saw me didn't agree.

I've been seeing a psychologist for over 6 months due to depression but he has never mentioned Asperger's to me.

If it is not too expensive or if it can be included in your depression sessions (as I did) maybe you could mention it and get an analysis to be sure?

I've been looking for autistic tests recently since I have problems with social situations and I really find it hard to realize why people bother so much when I don't like to talk or I get upset when I'm interrupted (I just don't get it, who doesn't upsets if they are interrupted?) besides other things. 

On this test I got these results:

I would find a professional that specialized in Asperger diagnosis, if you want to go that route. Here in my section of the USA, diagnosis, if not necessary for employment or some other reason, can be quite costly.

Is the test REAL?
Those with Asperger''s tend along two lines, they have difficulties reading faces and dealing socially (to greater or lesser degrees...this is a spectrum after all) AND they tend to be more intelligent then those friends of their same age group. The test is real but depends on a person's honesty for one, and it is not conclusive as it takes much more testing to be sure.

It says I'm a very likely Aspie, I just want to know if I am then what would my life turn out to be? As I'm actually not 19 and I'm not 13 yet, I'm 11 and I'm sry for lying about my age but it said I wasn't able to sign up bc I'm too young, I can't tell my parents because they'll say I don't have it then make an excuse so I have to wait till I'm older and moved out or somethin and go to the doctors to have a test. Anyway, what would I turn out like???? I'm sort of proud of who I am because even though I hate it I still try to get in social activties like Athletics and that, so could it get worse? I'm even thought to have anxiety before I got told that it might not be anxiety and it could be aspergers, or is aspergers the same?

Your aspie score: 107 out of 200
Your neurotypical score: 108 of 200
You seem to have both aspie and neurotypical traits

I'm in the forties and believe that the social / coping skills have somehow make us less aspie in the appearance, especially when you are a mild aspie.
But i'll tell you i am never happy since my childhood with all the copings with parents, friends, some colleagues...

Yet, while the above test very much described my feelings first time ever in my life, i am not sure if this is conclusive or not. So i went to see a psychologist. She said i don't have asperger. But the test i had gone through with that psycholoist was much shallow and irrelevant than For instance, there're many questions about drugs and addictions i think it's more for teenager. At the end she said i was just being 'cocky' (excessively proud of oneself) which i never was (and even so, a psychologist shouldn't say things like that).

And when i asked about 'mild asperger' she even didn't know how to answer my question. At the end she charged me about USD180 instead of the original assessment of USD700.

I think the resource and reserach for adult asperger is quite limited. People only focus on kids symptons of AS. I suppose Adult aspie are very very different from kids or teenage aspie because they have learnt the coping skills.

I was very disappointed and left no where with the psychologist despite the money and time (2 hours) spent. What do you guys think? Do you think the rdos test is conclusive or do you know any more scientific test for adults AS?

Thxxxx :0
no the online test isn't conclusive. With adults it is tough because, after a time we tend to hide symptoms out of shear self defense :-)
Mewkin smistee5 years ago
Taken from a collection of tests on WrongPlanet, these are what let me determine that I nearly certainly had Aspergers or Autism based just on a self-diagnosis before being diagnosed by a psychologist. They really helped.

However, I am only 19 years of age, and...
Aspie Score: 190.
NT: 13.
All of my results on those tests left little room for a non-autistic possibility. You're much more balanced than I am, and probably more mature, so it would be harder to pin down. But from what I've been seeing, most people who are honestly very certain that they are Aspergers and have read hundreds of webpages of information on the subject with obsessive passion, they are likely to be part of this weird minority. c:
It isn't 100% conclusive, but if you've answered honestly, and I assume you have, one can pretty much believe the outcome of the test.
Amphy646 years ago
Hi, can someone please help me interpret this? My psychologists (who I see for my OCD) think I have Asperger's, but I really don't think I do, and the test results would seem to agree that I'm NT. It's really worrying me, though since:
a) I may have Asperger's
b) I'm correct in thinking that I clearly don't, and my psychologists have no clue what they're on about, therefore may not be the best people to treat my OCD

Thank you.

Amphy, there is no need to worry either way. Yes, things like OCD can appear as comorbids with Asperger's BUT many neurotypicals have that condition also.

To be sure one way or another you'd need extensive testing, which if you have no reason for it (school, work, etc. requires it), it can be expensive and you do go through a lot for the result.

I only recently got the group transferred to me, so my apologies for my late answer.

I have never been diagnosed with Aspergers. But what lead me to learning about it was I have a cousin that has been diagnosed with it, and we share many of the same traits. I went to google to find out why I can't separate sounds and Aspergers came up and that's when I really started researching it.

If I had taken this quiz when I was younger, about say 5 years ago it probably would have been a higher score. But I started attending and working at places that have forced me to interact with others, I'm more okay with touch thanks to my last job. (And awesomely understanding friends that resulted from working there. ^.^)

Hi I'm new to all of this. I posted on the other board and figured it wouldn't hurt to post here as well.

I've been curious if I were an Aspie or not. I think I've learned to mimic a lot of social behaviors. Here's my score and I'll try to post the pic. It doesn't mean anything to me, just kind of explains my eccentricities. I seem to get by well and mainly suffer from social anxiety and/or depression. Learned how to cope and I get by.

Chakrakhan, social anxiety goes with the territory. One thing is certain, those with Asperger's Syndrome can NOT be put in a box, or under ONE description: Autism is a spectrum, as Temple Grandin says, from those with minds like Einstein all the way to the other end, where there is no verbal communication at all. No one is "Like" anyone else, thus the reason for using a spectrum.

My first cousin being the first born son on my fathers only brother has been diagnosed with autism. I share many if not all personality traits with him and i am also the first and oldest son/child. His and my siblings are all normal and usually ask us why we act or behave a certain way? He has an answer I do not. This would explain my unusually development with computers and electronics. Is there a way to find a legit diagnosis without my parents?
I am not sure. I know that diagnosis is easier in the younger formative years: I didn't get one until I was 50, and the tests and things you have to go through for that are as outlandish as the costs for waiting.

as for the incorrect first test, they will see your second test, and adjust accordingly. And they would see the second test as being more accurate. And they would learn from the differences too. I am not even sure if anybody is monitoring the results any more.

Its not a test I set up, just a test I took, but already there was overwhelming evidence I was an Aspie. hands and eyes might have more to do with doing things, reading writing etc, so feet and legs not so important

When you say aspies just DO things without thinking about them, do you mean stuff like trying to run over the roof of a car that is travelling at 30k an hour? or do you mean trying to talk about it with other people beforehand.
Lateral Thinker (author)  ~Aeronous~8 years ago
When I was working in sole charge jobs, I just went ahead and did things.

Working as part of a team, never allowed me to fully use my abilities.

But, non-Aspies spent days planning a project, in committees, months discussing a project.

I am TOLD that Aspies don't argue, they just go ahead and built.

But, I think its better to consider one of the other traits of an Aspie in relation to your question.

Aspies don't have hidden agendas, so when discussing a project, they don't have other motivation or agendas, that would delay things, or force invalid compromises onto the project.

BUT hey, I am still learning too.

Hey, have you had another face transplant?

On the picture the only difference on the labelling is Activity opposes Social.

Aspies think digital, they want it exact, that is Activity
Neurotypical think analogue, for them, its maybe, almost, just, and that is Social.

Aspies just DO IT.
Non-Aspies talk about it first.

I believe the name Neurotypical was invented, just to confuse non-Aspies into believing that THEY are different.

Further discussion is welcome. But please, do do not request analysis of your picture here, leave that for
The test only works as well as you want it to work. I believe it is very possible to manipulate the resulting picture, I have only done the test once, while doing it, I was unaware of how the end results would be presented. But as well as giving you a test result, its the questions and your personal answers that tell you what you are. In other words, you are exercising your right to make a informed decision about yourself, rather than relying on other people, whom might have different motivation and agenda. But few if any will want to post their answers, so the picture is a safe graphical way of displaying your answers without risking you personal privacy.
When I did some picture analyses on Instructables, afterwards I was comparing my interpretation with the posting members profile. Some pictures, I checked out the members profile first. So I have been learning too, never having seen a non-Aspie picture before now.
