Got 107. Explored the idea with my psychiatrist and even a 2nd opinion and everybody, including myself, are pretty convinced that I DON'T have AS.

You need to be careful with tests like these, Asperger's isn't really as broad a diagnosis as all these questions would suggest. Some of the more critical questions are like the following:
  • Do you expect other people to know your thoughts, experiences and opinions without you having to tell them?
  • Are you good at predicting how someone will feel?
  • Are you good at interpreting facial expressions?
  • Do you often talk about your special interests whether others seem to be interested or not?

It's easy to self-diagnose problems like depression, anxiety, etc, but it's important to talk to a psychiatrist before sticking the Asperger's label on yourself...
