Ooh....35. Very interesting.
"Most people with Asperger Syndrome or high functioning autism score about 35."

By the way, the link posted above did not work for me, but http://www.msnbc.com/modules/newsweek/autism_quotient did.

My sister with an autistic son scored a 9, another sis scored 28. It's interesting that woman on average score 15.

I scored 11 so guess that's one thing I can cross off my list to ask my doctor about at the next visit!

I scored a 12. Those questions made me anxious...what would your answer be if they asked that? Definitely agree!
Interesting set of questions

Score of 14. How strange it would be if some of those things didn't make you anxious! And the first link didn't work for me either - it said that it made Firefox anxious! Second link was fine, thanks.

16 here....
Probably all this interest lately in Autism
(and Asperger's which is low on the
Autism continuum) is fueled by the growing
discussion - about the connection between Autism
and the shots that children are forced to get
before they are allowed to start school.

They say the incidence of Autism is on the rise
and possibly connected to those "routine"
injections given to babies and toddlers.

Reminds me of when I was a child and we all had
fairly frequent X-Rays (done in school) Now the
incidence of thyroid problems is growing - in older
people who were subjected to regular irradiation.

Not sure if it's a rise in actual cases of autism or the diagnosis, correctly or incorrectly of autism, Row. When the discussion started some years back about the thimerosal connection I was all ears but have since shied away because I don't think the evidence is there. Thank goodness it's no longer in vaccines though. Needless to say I shudder at the fact that there has been an increase in parents refusing to have children vaccinated because of the perceived threat. We don't want a return of all those horrible diseases that were so prevalent years ago either.

Well, the test said 38 but I can't agree fully with the outcome as I stopped to watch Wopner half-way thru...


38! My wife won't stop laughing - and what's worse is I don't understand why.
I'm going back to counting my numbers.

(The really scary thing is that she wasn't even slightly surprised!)

My son & I are both Fragile X & he has also been diagnosed with high functioning Autism, scored 32 & 34. Guess the test works. Sorry Martin I've never been tested officially but would probably pass

Well, I scored 38 too. Hopefully, my wife won't mind supporting me for the rest of my life if I become unemployable.

Sorry, that was me that scored a 38, not Bbear. My wife wanted me to set the record straight.
