Autism Spectrum Quotient

I generally skip the Facebook app nonsense, but after a few friends took the "Autism Spectrum Quotient" inventory, I thought I'd complete it again.

From the application:

I've calculated my Autism Spectrum Quotient as 45, which is very high. Most women score about 15 and most men about 17. Most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 35. However, many who score above 32 and even meet the diagnostic criteria for mild autism or Asperger's have no difficulty functioning in their everyday lives.

I'd have to look up what my original score was. I think it was 42. So, I'm more withdrawn after four years in Minnesota. There's a shock -- cold winters and a miserable city leave me alone at home. Duh?

  1. Oh, I took that thing and I scored in the 30's maybe. It's interesting...*shrugs*

  2. I think the world is a little too enthusiastic about finding something "wrong" with everyone.

    There's nothing wrong with being shy/introverted and having a little social anxiety. It just doesn't make me a cheerleader-type. :) (Scored 30).
