Test yourself for Aspergers Syndrome Answered

Aspergers Syndrome has only been recognized since about 1995, we call ourselves Aspies.

Try this test http://www.rdos.net/eng/ make sure you follow the instructions the results will only survive for an hour, so download them ASAP, the picture (a pie graph) or Aspie-Rating-Picture (ARP) and final score, you can chose to show to people, but the questions and answers are very personal, keep those to yourself.

I plan to put my ARP here, that is something us Aspies enjoy displaying, something to be proud of, I hope that other Aspie group members put theirs on.

Your Aspie score: 181 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 28 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

It is possible to cheat to get a high score on the ARP, so I am thinking that ARPs can be voted off by members if members find the ARP unbelievable when comparing the member's ARP with said member's profile and activities on Instructables.

Aspies don't practice discrimination, so even if you don't have Aspergers Syndrome, consider yourself as a honorary Aspie and sign up anyway.

my score was 180 out of 200, with a neuro typical score of 34. It said "I am very likely neuro diverse". This was the last straw after a major shutdown that prompted me to go talk to my doctor about getting scheduled for a formal assessment.

Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 142 of 200

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 91 of 200

hi, this is my result from one year ago. I did not know text came with it for explanation. I'm not sure how to translate the middle sections between typical and atypical.

I really doubt the accuracy of this test since Its author even uses the wrong term: The opposite of "neurotypical" should be "neurodivergent," not "neurodiverse." People diverse but a minority called "neurominority people" are neurodivergent. See the meaning and uses of related terminology here: http://neurocosmopolitanism.com/neurodiversity-some-basic-terms-definitions/

I'm 23yrs. old, and my lack of relationships (outside of my Family) has finally come to it's head. I've had 3 friends my entire life, and none has lasted more than 1.5 years. Two left me, and I'm being forced to leave the other. I had what they'd call, "a moment of clarity" two days ago, and I've been doing my research, have taken the test. I've even taken it twice.

I'm having a horrible sinking feeling right about now...

[The Right is the first try, the Left is the second.]

ASPIE score 122 of 200

Nom- autistic score 76 of 200

Please read and anything would help

I'm 24, female and this all feels awkward but I need help understanding myself because the world around sure doesnt. Born very premature ,Broken/ beyond dysfunctional home, hate germs&clutter, had stutter so server that as a 3 yr I could tell ppl were annoyed/disappointed so I didn't start trying to speak till I broke silence to go off on a rude classmate (still stuttering but articulate) mentioned in my I.E.P. speak therapy and British Literature fixed stutter though. Father mostly absent, lived/took care of my manic mother that loved but also didnt exactly know what world wanted and suffered severe migraine headaches(as do I). No friends really my age, adults, teachers and dogs were my friend.no sense of time, filter, or intuition of others expectations.

Graduated high school without Special services, A.P. and honor roll courses with 3.7 overall GPA. Went to 4highschools and then dropped out and went into home studies because I could not deal with disrespect from peers & teacher on top of feeling weird as I do.

mother was bipolar/very suicidal/ cold/ blaming or hating towards basically everyone. Father very hyper, disorganzied, collects(hoards i believe), never grew up, doesnt think before speaking-acting, cant finish tasks, or put in chronological order/ prioritize anything. Both parents highly intelligent in all the wrong ways. Both were also addicts that had good opportunity but chose to cope poorly). I raised myself and 2 half siblings (who were adopted early on) and I went to live with them after mother passed to walk into a Cinderella story...just no glass slipper/happy ending. I put myself into the foster system because the verbal abused, lies, slandering and keep away became unbarable and I worried I'd make life even worse.

Ihave no goals or plans set decision/outlook to the future. I have no idea of hobbie or likes. I crawl out of my skin with ppl that have clutter and sense dust collecting stuff. Espically when disorganized. When I speak to a person I prefer it in person but then I feel I'm being looked at like I have a booger on my face...very uncomfortable. Please help me understand what is expected or acceptable. I am called negative, dramatic, angry , repetitive, over analyze. I just think I'm a realist, a survivor , that is sensitive and overly eager to please others.

I'd rather research and gather all knowledge then to allow another over priced person force anti depressants & sleeping pills down my throat that do the polar opposite of what they are intended for.
Please...any & all resources and theories would help....

I was trying to post my results. I would like an interpretation if that is possible. Can someone help me with this? I did download my results.

I am currently undergoing tests for autistic spectrum or whatever the buzzword is for the category the artists formerly known as Aspergers now falls under. It brought me here. I just completed the eye/expression test thing and something about awkward/inappropriate behaviour reading test. I also had an interview and another assessment a month ago. By professionals.

The questions that quiz asks I find far more relevant to any of the tests/questions I have been asked by the professionals. All of the professional tests I have simply applied 20+ years of screwing up everything and try to make the best of it. I took online tests before going to professionals and every one of them scored me quite highly by asking questions that I thought were appropriate to the condition, much like this test. None of my professional interactions have featured any of this stuff.

I have scored better (or worse?!) than a lot of people here - I have the ability to pass off almost for normal but the amount of work and force needed is far too taxing. I can do it for a while, I don't have a choice, I just act differently in certain situations and I think that is going to lead me to a flat denial. I feel that almost everything I have done with the so called professionals has been an irrelevant waste of time leaving me just as broken as before only now I will get a diagnosis, rubber stamped "nothing wrong".

I am starting to think it's not the likes of us who actually have a thing "wrong" with them.

Hmmm. I am already diagnosed with bipolar disorder one with psychotic features and ADD. I was diagnosed with Asperger's a a few years ago. I believe it affects my general happiness quotient. I am married but it is a perpetual struggle. I will never entirely understand anybody aspie or not.

I cant say that i am surprised.

i have now been Homeless for three years because of my inability to socialise normally. I cant pass a job interview because of this.

I don't have money to seek help. Most do not like me enough to lend some work. Do any of you get this? Noone who interacts with me are willing to help where it counts, which is income so i can survive.

No no, because i cant bs like everyone else, i am not fit for survival. Encouraging words do little for me at this point. I live in a state of desperation and anxiety, with little to do .

What can i do besides fade?

I got 159 of 200 in Aspie. What I found out is that I can find joy when thinking and talking about "artistic" things or place more emphasis on the "artistic" side of things. A glass can be half full and half empty, and that's a very rational way to look at things, but you can just say "I will drink that glass" and that expresses movement - the "artistic" way I'm speaking about. Movement is the key word. It works for me. It makes people smile. Also I can tell you that I like people that are like me and maybe we are alike. If you are indeed like me and I was able to, I would not hesitate to give you a job. You would be very punctual and very involved in what you actually do, if not anything else.

Tendency is that today autism is interpreted as some kind of genius gift. Jesus Screwing Christ, it seems most here are happy that they "got" Asperger's. I can understand it, because today's dominant ideology is to be different, so they just intendenly lead their answers to be diagnosed as autism patients. This diagnose won't make you to create another quantum revolution in science and make you great so that everybody admire you. The very fact you are here in public disscussing your "autism" makes you an ordinary boring folk, not capable of anything but lying on couch "thinking about the great issues".

I wish I was a little bit more neurodiverse, that would work for me to get rid of people and things I've done in the past. Still it says I'm a little more aspie than normal. At least now I may understand why all my exes hate me.

You seem to have both neurodiverse and neurotypical traits

I've always felt different but brushed it off as just that. Then when I had my younger son, I began to notice the same quirks. Though I didn't have any real info on autism other than what I learned on TV, I began to suspect it was that. Sure enough that was it. He had asperger's and I soon learned all those quirks were caused by his diagnosis. This in turn had me thinking I too have asperger's, but I wasn't upset. Instead, it gave me insight to who I am. I have taught myself and my son to embrace it. I have never let it get in the way of any goals; his or mine. I recently went back to school and received my teaching degree in Special education and Elementary education. Of course having a son diagnosed with a disability persuaded the direction I took. I never really disclosed to people that I thought I was different until my son's diagnosis. Though the uneducated told me I don't know what I am talking about, my classmates could see what I was talking about. So as I stated prior, I never allowed the thought of having asperger's as a negative. That is until now. I still embrace it, but I am confused on how to handle it in the interview process. I've graduated 2 years ago and am still not employed. I have gone on over 20 interviews, but if the interviewer doesn't know me personally, I don't get pass phase 1. I have rave recommendations from my local district where I substitute teach. However, to be a substitute teacher, I don't need to be interviewed most of the time. I recently had an interveiw and did not get it. I called the person who interviewed me to ask for feedback, which she gladly gave. Everything she told me, I know is true. The problem is, I do not know how to fix it since it is personality traits. As it is, I feel like such a fake at these interviews because I don't talk or act like them; but now I need to become someone I am not sure I can. I am not looking for sympathy, but ideas. I am sure others have been in my shoes and can offer suggestions. I only wish that the interview wasn't my only way in. Also, I wonder if maybe I should reveal that I believe I have asperger's so that they can understand why I answer them the way I do...just a thought.

hi guys, below are my score test. please help me explain whats the difference between neurotypical and neurodiverse side. please.. are both of them are classified as aspergers or just ASD? thx for reply

image.jpg

Hi,

My scores are as follows:

Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 132 of 200

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 82 of 200

You are very likely neurodiverse (Aspie)

I am 31 year old female, political scientist and economist. I know results of the test are not a diagnosis per se, yet I cannot help but relate to them. It was as if the questions were specifically designed for me, highlighting some of the ways I think and behave.

I do like routines, as I strongly believe discipline and orderliness is key to one's success, and see no point in changing something that offers control over various situations, predictability and efficiency. I do get obsessed about certain issues and show procrastination when compelled to do something which is not appealing to me. No issues with physical contact though.

I guess my biggest troubles are in social situations (not understanding why people think and do the way they do, overthinking / ruthlessly scrutinizing and criticizing my behavior prior and after social interaction, having a hard time keeping up contact with people, no strong bonds other than with my family, get tired easily of interaction, not really seeing the point of social norms, not knowing how to keep up conversations....). All in all, social interaction drains me of my energy instead of making me more energetic. Thus, ever since my early school years, I needed to mimic the behavior of others but it is exhausting as it does not come natural to me. Moreover, I get the feeling that others know I am faking interest in what they do and say, because "it is polite to show such interest and connect to others". All this translates in real life in no friends, no boyfriend for quite some time, and only my parents to bare with me (though they say I cannot always rely on their support and psychological comfort). So how about dealing with social interaction? Adapting to one's environment is not as easy (at least for some) as it seems. Can some of you share your experience and offer some tips as to how better handle social situations other than mimicking others' behavior?

At this point i believe it's pretty much impossible for people like us to actually "feel" the way, instead of merely "acting" like it. The "wrong planet syndrome" does have this name for a reason, we might just as well be aliens, from another planet, to most neurotypicals. Probably also explains why i always liked Mr Spock so much ;)



I wish i could leave you something more useful and specific, but I'm at a loss myself. Since i got my Asperger diagnosis I've been trying to be open and honest about it with most people i meet and know. It's a good way to break the ice and it also helps clear up a lot of the misconceptions that are swirling around the sympthom (too many people confusing it with psychopathy!).

Too me that looks like the right thing to do, i don't feel like i have to "hide myself" any longer and i can actually be somewhat "proud" about simply being myself, without feeling bad for being "different" in the way i think and act.

Not like i had too many friends before, so the people who will still socialize with me at least get a little bit of an early warning about the way i sometimes react to certain situations and things.

In essence I'm trying to turn my "disability" into an actual useful "perk", but that only works if you stand by your true nature, instead of trying to squeeze yourself into being something you ain't, for the sole purpose of staying conform with the people around you.

You are very likely neurodiverse (Aspie)--> Why neurodiverse?

The other day I was chatting with my mom. She mentioned that she worried that I may be autistic when I was little.(Because I was too quiet and too shy)...then she said, "I am glad you turn out alright." I am not sure how alright I could be. I was born introvert. Social interactions exhaust me. If I am in a bad mood, I don't even want to talk or even meet anyone. [Even till this day I don't understand the idea of dating/flirting.] Luckily, I can fake it and act "normal" in a lot of social situations.

please tell me If I have Asperger or not I will be takeing this test again

got 183 of 200 non Asperger

Asperger 21 of 200

I am, to say the least, confused. I tried to be honest with my answers, IE. not make a contest out of it and try to reach the higher score, but I ended up with Aspie/NT scores of 181/31. My aspie group scores in the analysis never go below 9, as can be seen in my graph, included below.

That being said, I've met "real" aspies, one of my good friends a few years back was one, and I don't recognize myself in it. OK I like to watch candles burn, have no problem with eating the same meal three weeks in a row and I almost can't push myself to phone strangers, but on the other hand I force myself to go out to see friends, can talk to people while making direct eye contact (that's a learned trick, but it wasn't that difficult), make a stand of getting out of my comfort zone every once in a while (almost improvized backpacker trips in unknown countries on the other side of the world) and am known for my empathy. I don't think that fits the bill.

I'm 40 and obviously, I learned to deal with most of my social akwardness a long time ago. I may have been helped by that giftedness that was diagnosed a couple back (and apparent in that 10/10 in Aspie talent.) Still I don't know what to think: I talked about it with my girlfriend of one year who was relieved because she hadn't dare to tackle the subject but has suspected it for a long time, as well as I talked with my best friends who dismissed it at once. Even a psychiatrist I once met seemed to think that the matter wasn't worth more that a short "Oh no you're not." So what? Is there a condition somewhere that includes all Aspie traits without being it?

poly12c-eng.png

After my diagnosis at age 50 (five years ago), NONE of my friends, nor even my wife could believe it (having incountered "younger" Aspies. After age 30, we have pretty much acclimated ourselves to "looking and feeling" like NTs; BUT, the attention to detail, the preoccupation with moving, spinning, swaying objects, etc etc never truely GO AWAy :-)
You have to understand, this is a SPECTRUM, so there is no real "this one is and that one is not, because of this one thing". I am able to handle empathy better then many of my "cohorts" and fellow Aspies. That little spike on the communications./hunting side shows you have learned quite a bit about "not letting certain things show". Still it is not a perfect test.

Thanks for your reply. I've been reading about the subject for a few days, and it appears that there are indeed intertwining between Asperger syndrome & giftedness. According to the chart found on page five of the article at http://www.eric.ed.gov/PDFS/EJ860954.pdf , I'm mostly a mix, leaning softly on the gifted side.

Lots of articles here and there about the relationship between the two, though. With an emphasis on how one helps to conceal the other.

That being said, a big laugh at the term "twice-exceptional", considering that all that brain power is being mostly devoted to appear "normal". A nice thing to learn, still: I'm not stupid, it's just that I use my brain for something else than for thinking. :)

Well, it IS a spectrum after all :-) One of the big indicators however does seem to be, at very least, one subject of heavy interest. For instance, dinosaurs, or trains are VERY common. I like astrophysics and genetics (and electronics) as hobbies.

I come back one year later, properly diagnosed, thinking my grip on life will be changed forever thanks to it, and it all started here. I could not be thankful enough.

I am now reading other people's comments, to try to help myself "get a grip" on what this means for me. "Being an Aspie", means that we can now be considered...normal. "A normal Aspie" that is. It means we have a place where we "FIT IN". It means that we can now find direction...reading books about the brain, and autism. It means whatever you want it to mean for you. It means that you don't have to fight your desire to watch pretty colored spinning objects for long periods of time. It means freedom from guilt and shame that others would try to place upon you. It means glorious freedom to be just who you are and to be happy with yourself! Be happy to be an Aspie! Your smart, that's why your different...maybe the others will get off of our backs a little now that they can hear a concrete reason for the things we do. Right? but, even if the whole world refused to understand...due to the recent removal of the DSM-5 diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome...who cares? We can unite in our support group of understanding that there are many others out there who are like us. We are not alone, nor ashamed. Smile, your an Aspie ! Now go use that specialized brain of yours to do something really great!

Aspie Score 138

Neurotypical Score 66

For me its kind of a coming together of my thoughts and why I think and act the way I do. I have always tried to go against how I feel when I am in social situations, though being the youngest of 4 siblings it often wasn't my choice. I have been told by my doctor that it would cost thousands of dollars for an official diagnosis and since I am high functioning it would be a waste of money. Unfortunately I often make mistakes and am to blunt in the way I speak and socialize and I wish that I could explain to my family that its just the way I communicate and I am not meaning it to be rude or mean at all. I am very stressed about not having a proper diagnosis because I have one sibling that is very close to me, but is also a catalyst to my anxiety in so many ways. If he could just understand me better it would make my life so much easier. I am worried though that I will be subject to a barrage of questions from people I know and that just makes the anxiety that much worse.

Figuring a lot of this stuff out though has been very instrumental in me being able to piece together and accept a lot of my past. It makes me less ashamed that I wasn't great at school, or didn't do or think the way I was supposed to. I hope that with this discovery my wife and I will be able to communicate better as she can understand a bit more about how I think and why I do what I do.

Thank you

Aspie Score 166 of 200

neurotypical score 40-200

Anyone know the accuacy of this test...?

Aspie Score 142 of 200

neurotypical score 96-200

What does this say about me? I have always kind of knew there was something a little different about me but have pretty much always managed to get through life. I had no idea about this affliction till today when i was talking to a woman about food and textures came up. I don't eat certain foods because of texture and she said her son is the same and that he has Aspie. So i thought hmmm maybe i should take a test and see.

Age: 15

Your Aspie Score: 160 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 54 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie.

How do I bring this up? I already have a psychologist to be treated for depression, but I feel strange asking is I have Asperger's just because I took an online test. I've walked in with the intent of asking about getting tested, but I always end up not asking.

Oh, and how do I tell my parents I suspect being an Aspie?

I took this test awhile ago and got an aspie score of 116 out of 200 and a neurotypical score of 86 out of 200, indicating that I have a moderate case of asperger's syndrome. It is a pain in the ass to get tested for this condition and if anyone could give me advice on where to go, that would be great.

i am simply looking for some material to explain Perception, Hunting, Communication, etc. Also, what does a higher or lower score mean? Obviously, one compares the Aspie side to the NT side to look at the relative difference. But what does it mean if bot NT and Aspie scores on a particular axis add up to a low number, or high number?
Trying to understand.

By the way . . .

Aspie score: 87 of 200
NT score: 130 of 200

I am 60, I wonder how much I have learned compensating behaviors that affect the test results?

Asperger's syndrom is a diagnosis. BUT we are HUMAN BEINGS, we are NOT JUST a diagnosis.

New DSM-5 just removed Asperger's Syndrome from the Dr's diagnosis ! July 2013

Only in that it is grouped with autism and a few other things as ASD, but it still exists, and if you get the right kind of doctor, the DSM-4 is what they still go by on some stuff. (I have such a doctor, who is recommending me to another doctor that can diagnose me officially.

I took another evaluation that had 1,448 questions and I wrote down each answer to each question...took all day & part of the evening. Yep. I definitely am an Aspie.
