From the Aspie Quiz: www.rdos.net/eng
Your Aspie score: 136 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 72 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie
The Broad Autism Phenotype Test
This questionnairre is designed to measure the mild autistic traits present in people who are not actually autistic but have a genetic predisposition to autism.
You scored 117 aloof, 82 rigid and 99 pragmatic
You scored above the cutoff on all three scales. Clearly, you are either autistic or on the broader autistic phenotype. You probably are not very social, and when you do interact with others, you come off as strange or rude without meaning to. You probably also like things to be familiar and predictable and don't like changes, especially unexpected ones.
You scored 117% on aloof, higher than 73% of your peers.
You scored 82% on rigid, higher than 29% of your peers.
You scored 99% on pragmatic, higher than 68% of your peers.
You scored 3% on diagnosis, higher than 26% of your peers.
I don't know that I agree with the rigid score, I don't think of myself as rigid. The rest of it is probably correct though.
From Spectrum Quotient (AQ) test (Baron-Cohen et al., 2001).
Agree: 4,5,6,7,12,13,22,23,26,33,39,41,43,45,46: 1 point
Disagree: 1,3,8,10,11,14,15,17,24,25,28,30,32,37,38,44,47,48 : 1 point
From: Empathizing Quotient and Systemizing Quotient - Revised (EQ SQ-R) tests (Wheelwright et al., 2006).
Respondent Average EQ Average SQ Brain Type
Males ............ 39.0 ....... 61.2 ..... Systemizing
Females ......... 48.0 ........51.7 ..... Empathizing
Your Score ..... 33 .......... 61
....... Extreme Systemizing
I think I empathize with people, I just don't express it the same way as most women. I agree that I am more Systemizing though.
Which is why I don't really relate to so many women, I guess.
6. Understanding facial expression test: The 'Reading the mind in the eyes' test (Baron-Cohen et al.).
Average score is between 22 and 30.
If you have ASD, you might have difficulties understanding facial expression.
Your score: 30
A typical score is in the range 22-30. If you scored over 30, you are very accurate at decoding a person's facial expressions around their eyes. A score under 22 indicates you find this quite difficult.
The correct answers for the ones you missed are:
I did better on the "Understanding Facial Expression Test" than I thought I would. So that means, when I suspect someone is bored or angry or impatient...I could be right. Doesn't make me feel better.
7. Face blindness / Prosopagnosia test: The Cambridge Face Memory test (faceblind.org).
Out of 30 faces, you correctly identified 28.
You were familiar with 30 of the people in this test.
If we exclude the ones you were unfamiliar with, you got 93% correct.
I was diagnosed with severe social anxiety and depression at age 29 or 30. If I can ever afford to see a therapist again I'll bring up these scores and ask their opinion, I guess.
