Yikes, Vincent, are you sure you don't have AS? You may want to find an Asperger Specialist, who deals with adults (and there aren't many, unfortunately), to be tested. And no, you obviously aren't an uncaring psycho (and neither am I), we're just different and don't fit the norm (which appears to be a crime these days it almost seems).

Kabowman, you are just a little more into technical stuff than many women, but with your numbers, you are excluded from the 'exclusive' AS club, sorry! :P

Smunkeemom, you obviously are a LOT into systemizing, but again, with your other two numbers, not likely AS (or maybe just a touch).

And Jerseyangel, you look like a normal introvert to me.

There, I've done my job as 'psychologist' now :ph34r: , but it's probably pretty accurate. I have done years of research on AS to find out about who I am, rather than what people claim I am. And those numbers, while they won't diagnose anybody, are a good indication of whether it is possible for people to have AS (and to see if anybody should pursue further testing).

Well I have had lots of lables, but AS has not been one of them. I pretty much assume some form of Autism but since my last DX'd of ADHD/etc I not been for futher testing. One I notice about AS is...

However, children with AS do not have delays in the area of communication and language. In fact, to be diagnosed with Asperger, a child must have had normal language development


To this day I am way behind in written lang. I tested a 4th grade level recently. So probably not. Verbal I am okay with, and thanks to programs like Word, I get by fine in the corporate world with written and I am far from the complete and total helpless failure that many said I would be. :)

Bit of trivia for you... under the ADA its is illegal to require me to spell words correctly :lol: :lol:

Well, here now we have a perfectly rounded, 100% normal person (whatever normal means). Amazing! :D I think an AQ of 9 makes you a VERY social person (the opposite of me).

*snif* I'd like to thank the academy...

:P

I really thought I had to have ADD or something, but I guess my goldfish attention span really is the result of brainfog!

Erm, I guess being normal feels...normal? I'm also more systemizing and empathetic than the average population...what does that mean? At least I'm equal with the numbers at least...

yeah, I think that's why people think I am crazy, my doctor says I have OCD, but the meds made me feel high so he said not to take them. I prefer to think I am eccentric. :P

Vincent, it is SPOKEN language they're talking about. Plus, you might have HFA (high functioning autism), which goes along with late speech development. My older brother didn't speak until the age of three, but by the time he was six and I was five, his speech was the same as mine, and still is.

And dyslexia is VERY common in people with AS (more common than in the general population). And actually, your proficiency with computers speaks for AS or HFA (Bill Gates has AS, by the way).

Smunkeemom, nothing wrong with being eccentric! At least you're not boring. ;)

ChelsE, what is normal? I have no idea. I guess it is what the majority decides on what 'everybody' should be like to fit their preconceived ideals of normal. If the majority of people were like me, you would be the odd one out and would be told to 'shape up' and stop being so social!!!!!!!!!! :unsure:

Ding Ding DIng , you take the prize dyslexia is one my lables that was covered under "etc" :)

Well acording to my Mom (I do not realy remember!) I did not start talking till 2 1/2... so dunno if thats late or not? She tells me I was late on every milestone...

My son was very late talking, and still is behind, but he spent 18months in brainfog, and 6 months deaf ... so no surprise there! He making HUGE MASSIVE strides now though. Learned a years worth of lang in 2 months. :)

BTW, why is it that words like "Cookie" and "Candy" he can say perfectly with out prompting, but "please" and "thank you" are a struggle. :lol: :lol: :lol:
