Default eleven signs of aspergers.

1. Problems with two-way conversation
You talk at people rather than with them. You may try to talk about a favorite subject and not notice when people are not interested in it.

never tyalked at people but I have nerdjacked conversations and sometime go on and on about the same thing and people get frustrated and I don't realize.

2. Difficulty with social cues: You may say or act inappropriately and seem oblivious to others' reactions. You may miss someone's subtle attempt to leave a conversation.

Sometimes when someone passess me something I don't know what I am supposed to do.

3. Social awkwardness: You want to make friends but have trouble figuring out how to make them or maintain friendships. You may have trouble maintaining long friendships and working relationships with co-workers.

90% correct. I know how to make friends but just got to find goos ones who are more like me.

4. Verbal instruction challenges: You have problems understanding verbal instruction and learn better with visual supports.

No.

5. Mindblindness: You often takes things literally and do not understand subtle language. You have problems understanding other people's emotions and may respond inappropriately due to this misunderstanding.

I can understand sarcasm and stuff like that but sometimes miss out on things most others pick up on

6. Narrow interests: You may have a limited range of interests and no interest in participating in other activities or subjects.

I can get absorbed in subjects but they can change freuqently from topic to topic.

7. Strict routines: You prefer a rigid routine and gets irrationally upset when the routine is disrupted.

Sort of. If I don't get my full cream milk I crack the *hitS

8. Sensory problems: You may have unusual reactions to sounds, sights, physical contact or tastes such as an irrational fear of the sound of car horns.

No but I do have an irrational fear of people making sudden loud noises

9. Motor skill problems: You experience some limitations in both gross and fine motor skills. For example, you may have taken longer to learn how to ride a bike or gain skill at handwriting during childhood.

I think I did take a bit longer to learn how to ride a bike.

10. Obsessions: You have an unusual ability to focus intently on a favorite activity or subject for hours without noticing the passage of time, other people or your environment.

I find it to hard to concentrate.

11. Repetitive behavior: You include unusual rituals or repetitive actions in your strict routine such as hand flapping or rocking back and forth. Many of these repetitive actions are performed in a very specific manner. For example, you may flap his hands four times before opening a door.

I don't do this but when I get anxious I might nibble on my finger nails or rock back and forth on my chair or poke my tounge in and out really fast or like you do when licking a puss.

I forgot to put that up but come to think of it, it is more of an obsession rather than your typical obsessive love thoughts.

Out of those I have 3, 6, 9 and 10. If biting my nails when I think real hard counts, then I have 11 too.

Do not self-diagnose. It's unhealthy.

1. Sorta, I dont do what it exactly describes, my problem more lies in saying very little, even to a subject i can relate.
2. yes and no. I think im over sensitive to cues, i can see reactions in peoples faces and usually pick up on the things they say (tho that all goes away when it comes to attraction), but it would appear i over estimate these cues, or it seems most people suck at these cues, like their facial expression or voice inflection indicates something other than what they are thinking/feeling. often times when this mistake happens, other people did not pick up on these cues.
3. Yes, except working relationships. I do just fine with coworkers.
4. Absolutely. From grade school till now, i have a terrrible time with verbal instructions. I usually forgot what i am told, and have to ask somebody else. and i wont compute what i am being told very fast, so if i have a question i always ask well after i was given instructions.
5. Yes, maybe its jsut me, but i always thouht it was less my problem, and more that other people are just terrible communicators. I can also have a hard time knowing what somebody 'meant' as opposed to what they say, like if they misspeak and use the wrong word. Its often hard for me to know if - they said the right word, they think they said the right word but its actually wrong, or they actually did use the wrong word, and i can come off as nitpicky about it if the words sound similar, because to me they are still completely different words.
6.disagree completely.
7. a little bit, not extreme.
8. i hate the feel of paper. probably no tho, as all people seem to experience this to a small degree.
9. nope.
10. I dont think so, im usually very aware of the time.
11. no.

So i am gonna guess im clear.

I only have a few of those and they aren't that extreme. I used to think I had aspergers based on things I used to do as a kid, but I guess they aren't related to that.
