'[OT:] Aspergers / Autism test'

Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen and his colleagues at Cambridge's Autism
Research Centre have created the Autism-Spectrum Quotient, or AQ, as a
measure of the extent of autistic traits in adults. In the first major trial
using the test, the average score in the control group was 16.4. Eighty
percent of those diagnosed with autism or a related disorder scored 32 or
higher.

I scored 21 - lower than I would have expected for an engineer, or myself
:-)

I scored 21 as well.

My eldest son has Aspergers syndrome though and I see a lot of his problems
in myself although its a lot easier to control them with age. My stepson has
ADHD and a lot of the points on the quiz apply to him as well.

I just finished the test with a 29.
Should I be concerned?

I "beat" you, I got a 24.  ;-)  I'd like to have taken this when I was
about 16, I'm sure I would have scored "higher".

Nah.  I beat you with 30.

These kind of tests always interest me.  I did an online IQ test and
scored very high.  It's not so much that I'm above average intelligence,
I'm just a good test taker, and find simple puzzles (such as are often
found on IQ tests) fun and easy.  It also helped that the IQ test in
question based part of its calculation on time (which was told
beforehand) so I just went through it really fast, not caring how many I
got wrong since it appeared as though time might have a larger influence
than several wrong answers.

I feel the same as many others that IQ tests aren't so much a good
measure of intelligence, but a good measure of problem solving skills
and test taking skills.  I suspect these kind of tests are similar.
They give an indication of potential of suffering from a syndrome, but
don't actually tell one whether they are suffering from it.  However, I
imagine that the false positive rate is much higher than the false
negative.  A person who isn't afflicted can still score high, but I bet
very few people who are afflicted could score low.  It's a good tool to
indicate that seeking help might be benificial.  Good sieves are hard to
find.

Certianly is interesting stuff though.  If I have aspergers or am
slightly autistic, I've certianly been able to manage well enough in
society.  Mostly by avoiding it... :-)  Certianly seems to be good for a
job involving technical work, though!

I got an 18. I thought that was bad until I read the lower the score, the
better...right?. Maybe a question on the test should have been, "Do you read
accurately?"

I'll take your 32 and raise you a 44.

My wife said "That figures!" :-(

I scored 23. Not that I give a rodent's posterior about these IQ tests and
whatnot. :-)

Got the same score (28), however I do not place much creedance on this test.
I once thought, through mis-diagnoses, that I had Asperger's, but now I know
that to be incorrect.  I believe this label is a dangerous form of
psychological type-casting.  For something even closer to home, esp. for the
sort of people on this list, like myself, i.e. not your "average" thinker,
don't quite fit in, etc., and incidently just the sort of person that would
get involved in PIC development ... I suggest that everyone here have a look
at the "Reciprocality Project".  Several links come up on the subject from a
Google search.

Scary stuff.  Hits very close to home, and based on more scientific
grounding.
