I got a 26, it is interesting that many of the questions here could be on a test for social anxiety. I'm guessing that answering them in the way us social anxiety people would puts as higher on this scale too.

22.

I'm not sure I like this test, but it's just in Newsweek. It doesn't seem designed to filter out other causes for why someone would act in certain ways.

Have a nice day,
Kelly :)

I got 35 -- which they say is average for those with high functioning autism.

One of the questions was something about do you offend people without even realizing it -- see, I can't help being offensive; I'm just offensive without even trying.

Many questions related to social situations, so I'd bet that those with SA would likely get higher scores than the general population on this test.

28...yeah, definitely 28. Time for Wapner. Of course, I'm not wearing any underwear. Got to go to K-mart on Beechmont Avenue in Cincinnati and buy some more. The store on Vine Street closed. Definitely not open.

I got 29. My mom has believed for many years that I have Asperger's, so maybe this supports that idea. Then again, maybe I'm just shy and introverted.

[edit]: Interesting how men are slightly more autistic on average than women. Maybe that's my problem.

29...Kevin is right, men have higher rates of autism than women. I don't think I have Asperger's because I am sincere and try not to be offensive. It is just social anxiety and intimidating, yet above-average intelligece (as I have been told by doctors)

Jnmcda0 got it close. No Rain Man jokes! :lol
