Test Revisited...

Earlier this year (last January, in fact) I took an online quiz ( about Aspergers which I found very interesting. It had an unusual scoring system - giving you an "Aspie" score and an "NT" score. The test is being reworked and constantly updated, and the author is now on version 7. I took it again today...

Peff's Results in January
Your Aspie score: 142
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 56
You are very likely an Aspie

Peff's Results in November
Your Aspie score: 144 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 45 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

So my score is roughly the same (though apparently I'm a little more autistic and a little less "normal" today *laughs*) I notice in this quiz there are some statements that I agree with very strongly (eg "Do you dislike it when people turn up at your home uninvited?" or "Before doing something or going somewhere, do you need to have a picture in your mind of what's going to happen so as to be able to prepare yourself mentally first?").

I quite like this test, it seems that the author has done a lot of research into the day-to-day life of an Aspie rather than following a dry medical text. For example, one may not think they have a problem with sensitivty to sound until they consider a question like "Do you have problems distinguishing voices from background noise, or from other voices?"
