199 of 200 Aspie

06 of 200 Neurotypical

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.

Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 93 of 200

what does this mean

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?

Aspie Test.jpg

(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?

poly10a.php.png

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

aspie.PNG

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 found this forum looking for a clear description of this graph but appreciated the personal stories. Does anyone havr the ability to translate this graph to eords?

There you go, my volunteered non-Aspie picture, for the purposes of this discussion. Aspie score 19/200, NT score 171/200. Labels are in Dutch, sorry about that.

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"
Aspie social 7.4 out of 10 "Bipolar", ODD, ADD /ADHD"
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 eye...so 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 ...no 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"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/domesday/dblock/GB-34...

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 overload...so 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.

You are very likely an Aspie

This explains everything that I've been dealing with my entire life. Oh my gosh! It's scary how on-point this is. I am an Aspie.

I am 38 years old. I feel like if I had taken this test when I was 16 and answered honestly, the Aspie number would have been a lot higher.

This explains quite a bit, i have never been very normal:

EUREKA! THIS EXPLAINS A LOT!......... (Maybe everything!)

What now? Where to start.
Acknowledge things I have to accept that wont change and I must learn to cope with.
Work out things that I can change ... find some strategies to use?
Accept myself as I am.

Thank you all for your comments.
This may be a massive break through for me this morning. I will be back.

Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 47 of 200 You are very likely an Aspie

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....

30 male. Extreme (and i mean extreme) picky eating since 2 years old. Have never been able to adjust well to social settings.
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?

Your Aspie score: 158 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 48 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

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.

Thank you for letting me know. Can you please direct me to your reply?

Your Aspie score: 113 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 92 of 200
You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits

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??

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

You are very likely an Aspie

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:

http://taniaannmarshall.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/professional-faq-series-female-aspergers-referred-emotion-and-the-superpower-6th-sense/

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'm 29.

Yes, is there anything specific you would like to know?

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.

*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...
