I thought this was interesting. Like gender-traits, we all have some neurotypical and autistic traits. Some are more obvious than others and no one is 100% normal (whatever that word means on closer examination).

As a bona fide introvert, I wasn't surprised at my results:

103 out of 200 (98 to 200 being the non-autistic range) with particularly high aspie scores in the social and intellectual areas.

....

So, I thought it would be fun to share and see how others faired. :)

You are very likely an AspieSomehow I am not really surprised by this. *shrug*

Unsurprising:

Your Aspie score: 22 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 185 of 200
You are very likely neurotypical

Communication, perception and hunting were my highest thingys, too. Whatever it is those thingys mean.

I scored really high on hunting, perception, talent (?), communication and social.

Apparently, I'm very extroverted. Who'd have thunk it? But I'd love to give this test to my son in law. It might explain a lot.

I thought it would explain a lot for me too. I answered positively to a lot of the questions, but I still only got a 91/200, and it said I was most probably neurotypical. I'm not sure what the "strengths" things mean, and it doesn't give any links to figure them out. They should have included some sort of guide to reading that chart.

Depends which side the "hunting" was on. I saved the PDF and it says this:


Neurotypical hunting: The traits in this group are related to cooperative hunting. These traits are often described in terms of dysfunctions. Typical traits are recollections of environmental information (e.g. positions of things; scores on games; orders of words, letter and digits; map reading) and passing on information to others. Other traits are related to trading and exchange with others. A low score is related to dyslexia or dyscalculia.

As for perception, this has to do with the way in which your brain interprets and interacts with the physical world--your senses, your coordination, etc. Some people are more sensitive to environmental stimuli than others (i.e. noises, lights, etc)...some people are more coordinated than others (gross/fine motors...some are artists some are atheletes and some are a danger to themselves and others out of sheer clumsiness :) ).

I'm good with artistic endeavors (fine motor), but could possibly harm myself in sports (my gross motor skills, suck).

If you go back to the site and download the PDF it gives a lot more information/explanation. But, it only saves your info for an hour, so you'll have to redo it if you go over that :)

What the fuck is this?
Do you tend to look a lot at people you like and little or not at all at people you dislike?Why no, I prefer to look at ugly people; what do you think?

*sigh*

The test's slanted.
Are your views typical of your peer group?Well duh. If I disagree with someone, why would I make myself their peer?
Are your eyes extra sensitive to stong light and glare?Why yes. Because I get migraines.
Do you have strong attachments to certain favorite objects?Why, yes! Because they're my favourite objects.

Your Aspie score: 90 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 147 of 200

You're misunderstanding the questions. It's not asking if you only look at people you like. It's asking if you stare at people you like and try to avoid looking at people you don't. It has nothing to do with looks or physical attractiveness.

I'm not sure why the sensitivity to light question is slanted. Some people are hypersensitive to light (like me), and others aren't (like my girlfriend).

As far as the attachment thing goes, I assumed it meant like the way the woman felt about the Eiffel Tower when she married it.

No, I scored pretty high on the social traits of Asperger syndrome and was about half n' half (but I've been diagnosed with social phobia and I'm an introvert--so no shock there). So, moo to you. Besides, there's nothing wrong with being ASD (not that I think this test serves as a great diagnostic tool--just for fun) many if not most are talented/interesting people. It's just one more way of being and experiencing the world.

:D

You said it was slanted and then listed a bunch of questions. It's usually pretty safe to assume that the examples that follow a statement are evidence for said statement. *shrug*

j/k :tongue

Neurotypical just means having more neurological development traits (particularly as they relate to social aspects of learning/development) that are witnessed in a larger percentage of the population. Being neurotypical has nothing to do with being normal. There are plenty of odd neurotypical people out there in the world today :D

Me too. I didn't get a free pass to either the Aspie or NT camps, either!

And again, being neurotypical, for those discouraged by the moniker...doesn't mean you can't still be certifiably batshit crazy (so don't despair, there's still hope--the DSMIV is filled with all sorts of disorders that would be perfect for writers and other creative types) :) ASD is just a different way of experiencing the world and nothing to do with being nuts.

Whilst I'm not going to self-diagnose on the basis on an interwebs test, I do know I am not neurotypical. I have suggested to my GP on more than one occasion that I believe I have ADD (unfortunately without the hyperactivity, I'm a lazy moo). The really unfortunate thing is, my daughter is the same.

I prefer the term 'odd' :D

It means you scored well in what people with Asperger's typically view as being normal traits in neurotypical people. Hunting is being able to do group tasks like passing information, etc. Perception is being able to discern things the way the rest of society does. They're all social skills.

Just jumping in to add, Google "famous people with asperger's" (note: asperger's syndrome was not identified until the 1990's) for a list of people suspected of having ASD traits. It's quite a distinguished list (as is the list for bipolar disorder).

Many ASD kids develop hyperlexia (early reading). They're smarties. One boy I worked with was just 2 and reading. ASD isn't so much a case, again, of being "abnormal" as it is experiencing the world differently. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Now, of course, we all need some social skills to get along in life, but having great social awareness isn't the be-all-end-all.

And I'm trying not to sound biased in saying that, as I'm horribly socially phobic and terrible w/ social manuvering. Hate it as a matter of fact (not people, the manuvering).

I've always had trouble with fluorescent lighting, myself. My husband thinks I'm nuts (well, I am kinda) but I notice the cycling. Light's a big pita for me. But, I have occular migraines, too. Probably related, I'd imagine.
