Suspect you or someone you know has Aspergers? Take this short online Asperger’s Test developed by the Cambridge Autism Research Center.

Take the Aspergers Quiz



You have probably arrived at this page because you suspect yourself or someone you care about has Aspergers Syndrome (AS) or High Functioning Autism (HFA).  It hasn’t been until the past ten years or so that people have begun to become aware of the condition. Now with many celebrities and successful business people proclaiming that they have the condition there has been a massive increase in the number of people looking for a diagnosis. This is particularly so for those in the field of engineering or computer sciences where a certain level of introversion in the industry tends to attract those with AS.

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken this test since its creation and it has proved to be an effective screening mechanism in the diagnosis of AS. It can be used by adults, including parents taking the test on behalf of their children.

Who designed the Asperger’s Test?

This short multiple choice questionnaire known as the Autism Quotient or AQ Test was developed by Simon Baron-Cohen and his colleagues from the Cambridge Autism Research Centre. Its goal was to provide a simple screening mechanism that could be used by doctors/general practitioners as a basis for referring patients for a more formal Asperger’s Syndrome evaluation. More information about the test format can be found here.

How long does it take?

The quiz, which takes less than 7 minutes to complete, explores different areas of one’s life to give a result. The areas explored are communication, socializing, imagination and attention to detail as well as one’s tolerance to change. These areas are the main evaluating factors when looking for an AS diagnosis. The effects of AS in women are slightly different to those of men but as a general screening tool this questionnaire is still effective. The average score for women with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism is usually about 5 points higher than for men.

Take this short Asperger's Quiz and find out where you are on the spectrum/

The test is completely FREE and is comprised of a number of multiple choice questions. At the end of the test you will receive a score which can be used to assess the likelihood of having Asperger’s Syndrome or Autism. Please note, for privacy reasons we do not store the results of the AQ test.

It is important to note that while this test can be used to give an indication of the likelihood of having Asperger’s Syndrome, it is not meant to replace a formal medical diagnosis. It is recommended that you visit your doctor if you are concerned. Please see our guide on getting an official diagnosis and answers to other frequently asked questions at www.AspergersTestSite.com.

    I have always felt like I was outside looking in. Socializing seemed so easy for other people but I never knew what to say or do. I thought my insecurities were from growing up in an alcoholic home. My father, I’m certain, is on the spectrum, as are two of my boys. Now I get it! 38 out of 50…. I’m okay- just different!

  2. Debra says:

    Hi, My 11yr old son was diagnosed several years ago with Aspergers, adhd and anxiety and has just received SEN. He has spent 7 awful years in Mainstream and I’m now having to appeal their decision to place him in continued Mainstream Education. ( that’s a book of thoughts and frustrations in itself) However, when my son was initially referred I had never even heard of Aspergers; so I went to the library and began reading. I don’t know what was the biggest shock, a few chapters in (Tony Attwood) and I couldn’t breathe and I spent the whole day in tears because I identified fully with everything. Through a huge mix of emotions I approached my GP for a referral with the Mental Health Team. The appointment lasted no more than 5 mins (20 Q’S) and they were very unlike the ones you see on-line. Hence, they wrote and told me I didn’t have anything wrong with me. I know I have Aspergers traits and I just want to be able to help myself so I can help my son. By the way I took the this test twice just to be sure and I scored 44. I feel so trapped because although my son is on paperwork perceived to be getting the help he needs he is not (book 2 ?!*) I struggle to stand up for myself and he needs me to be strong (my entire family are in denial and blame me for his diagnosis!!) Yet if I had a diagnosis it would offer me a certain amount of empowerment when dealing with the daily issues that have a huge impact on our lives. I just want to be able to say ‘ we have Aspergers and we are proud to be us’ . Are there any support groups for women in my position; info, anything at all.

  3. ANONYMOUS says:

    My lover left me in 2 years ago. he did not contact me, wouldn’t answer my calls and emails, During this period I contacted many casters without results. . But I never lost hope until i got to meet this powerful caster ROBINSONBUCKLER AT YAHOO DOT COM and he did the most wonderful spell for me and after 3 days everything changed, my lover came back, his love spell works fast even in the most complex circumstances, I am recommending his love spell to every couple who wants to get back together, I can say Mr Robinson possessed all the qualities you want if you want to get your lover back, it was like a dream to me, he will solve your relationship problem

  4. sasha says:

    i got 46… i’m a 17 year old girl and my mom has always believed that i have aspergers. i’m officially diagnosed with depression, anxiety disorder, and ADHD. my mom once asked the nurse at the mental hospital if she could do a screening for aspergers for me, but the nurse said that since i’m a girl, i probably wouldn’t have it? are girls underdiagnosed for aspergers often? i’m going to my psychiatrist today and i’m wondering if i should bring it up.

    • admin says:

      Yes I would definitely bring it up, the symptoms for girls are different, hopefully will blog about this at some point.

  5. Collin says:

    So, I took this test, and the identical questions on another site (without realizing at first, but then finishing it as a control). I scored a 36 then a 35. I also scored an 11 on an EQ test. I have many of the signs of Aspergers, and as a child had a lot of signs common in children with Aspergers, and I connect with a lot of what Aspie vloggers are talking about dealing with. Should I pursue a pro-diagnosis?

  6. Mark says:

    It chuckles me when people say “hey do you think I have it?”. I mean, if you’re an Aspie you KNOW … Period. If you are just “shy” then you are probably not. If you were an outcast to everyone from day one, you probably are. But hey, don’t listen to me, I have a mental condition!

  7. Mark says:

    I took this test as there are quite a few things I find other people abnormal for not doing. I scored 36 and thought it was just another scam test sort of thing so I asked my wife to take it, she scored 14.

    We have a 2 year old daughter who is also constantly praised for how intelligent she is and shows a few other traits

  8. Domonique says:

    How do I find the test I took a few months back? I closed the page and didn’t copy it because I assumed they would email me the results but they never did. Do I have to take the test again? Or is there a way to find my original test results? I believe I scored an 87% but it annoys me I cannot remember exactly what it said.

  9. Alexa says:

    I most likely have Aspergers… I literally took this test to really see if i had it… Did i mention i’m only in my first year of Jr High? I took it amongst myself to do it… I’m literally so interested in it, I’m under my covers w/ my laptop writing this at 11:00 pm (23:00)! My lord. Just here to say, do not be frightened if your child has aspergers! My mother told me all about it! There was no reason to weep when my mother told me that just because i have no friends, does not mean I’m weird! She told me that I was on the same spectrum as Da Vinci, Steve Jobs, Beethoven, Mozart, Temple Grandin and more! I was proud of myself to be in the same spectrum as hundreds of geniuses! Tell your daughter/son that! They’ll love it!

    I hope that helps!

  10. yazter says:

    The test is somewhat unfair as some of these problems are overcome in adulthood with self-discipline and training and, thus, no longer apply.

    I scored a 30 and I know for a fact that I do have AS because I did struggle with a lot of the hypothetical situations used in the questionnaire.

    This problem is misdiagnosed often, I believe (I’m no expert, of course), by doctors because they use certain standarised criteria when diagnosing. Adult patients, such as myself, have overcome some of these problems, which they struggled for a long time as kids.

    To be fair, I’ve only spoken with two psychology professionals (both, incidentally, smart psychiatrists with a predisposition to medicated approaches to problems). I think I need an expert in AS, or, even better, a professional who has AS because they may be able to diagnose it.

    When I first read about it, admittedly in my adulthood, something truly snapped in me. Like that “lightbulb” that appears on top of cartoon characters’ heads when they get an epiphany, it almost hit me right then and there.

    Sure, some symptoms are open for interpretation and can be misperceived. I mean, many people ‘feel’ odd of have problems socialising. Many people have peculiar interests. I do not take those as definite, indisputable symptoms of AS but two things truly, truly stood out:

    1) The gait: as a kid and up until my university years, I had a bouncy gait. I would walk on my toe in a bouncy manner and, to describe it more, my chest would protrude and my body would be positioned in a way that can be used to describe someone trying to “look over a fence” (even though that is not what I was doing. I’m only trying to describe what my position looked like). I was always mocked for it, and I would always be told to ‘walk normal.’

    2) Social cues: I used to take things literally, even though it’s just formality. For example, in boarding school I was talking to a classmate who was from Japan. I told her about my fascination with her country and how I would love to visit it. She said “oh yeah you should definitely visit. We’ll hang out and stuff” (paraphrasing). What do I next? I call my mom and tell her: “mom I want to go to Japan. My friend just invited me.).

    3) Literal interpretation: I would take things as they are described. For example, I never knew exactly what money laundering was. For a long time I always thought that putting money in laundry machine, or washing them in water then hanging them to dry was illegal. I surmised that it is because it involved ruining currency or something to that effect because it’d make that money useless. Then I realised it was doing something illegal with money. What that was, I was not sure, but I knew it didn’t involve laundry machines.

    4) Interests: I met a multilingual teacher who fascinated me. To this end, I decided to look up foreign languages. I studied Spanish and I knew how to conjugate every verb, to differentiate between the use of subjunctive and predicative. All self-taught and by the time I was 16, I was put in advanced Spanish in high school. I got 7/7 on my IB Spanish test and 5/5 on AP. Around the age 18, I switched to Russian. I was fascinated greatly by the structure of Russian grammar, without giving any consideration or having any interest in the country itself, or its culture. My interest was purely in Russian grammar and syntax. So I taught myself Russian using grammar textbooks (not those commercialised “teach yourself” books or using Rosetta Stone audio). By the time I was 21 I was put in an advanced/graduate-level Russian course, without “formal” training, and I aced it. I would compose essays (well, in Russian they were called sochinenie, or “compositions,” in a “high style.” And I would really fascinate everyone around me.

    Let me be clear about my academic performance: I would ace foreign language courses, but I did miserably poor in other courses, to the point where I would even fail a class. I do not think I am intelligent, by any standard, I just have an idiosyncratic approach to academic knowledge; I would only excel in things I was interested in.

  11. Belinda says:

    I got a score of 35. Does that mean I have aspergers? I’m only 16 and I know that I act different to all of my friends. And my step mum mentions aspergers a while back Because she was wondering if I had it but I never got tested. I thought this test would help but now I’m confused. Are the results true or could be true? Is there anything I could do to be certain Without involving my parents Because I don’t want them to worry or spend heaps of money to only come out with nothing.

  12. Debbiedowner says:

    scorred 29… rather be an unknowingly aspie, not aware of whats going on in my surroundings, than fully aware and not quite normal. I wish I couldn’t read people as well as I do, I mean I can feel what they are feeling, as if I’m in their body. I’m sound, movement, and people sensitive – it’s like I’m registering more of what is going on, and it is exhausting. I take anxiety meds and antidepressant meds. I’m not really interested in other people, only if they are like me ( and they rarely are). I don’t talk well with other females (I’m female), I can’t relate to them in their thinking. In fact, I feel more like I have a guys brain, and therefore find it easy to talk and communicate with guys. I am drawn to other aspies, it’s pretty weird. My first and only boyfriend was an aspie without a doubt (undiagnosed), and the people that I do click with are aspies, so what the hell? Can you be an aspie and be extremely good at reading other people and situations, I don’t think so! I feel like I don’t belong in the normal spectrum and neither in the really autistic spectrum. I rather be one or the other…

  13. Neil says:

    i just got a 43 aq. i was diagnosed with ocd when I was 19. no meds ever helped my anxiety. most of them made my situations worse. i have lost jobs in the past. Also divorced once. i have remarried and have 3 children. my wife tells me im not the best at knowing when they need me to be supportive and it seems like i dont care most of the time. if this test is correct, maybe i can get help and keep them. she never told me she was going to leave me, but why would any of them stay if they dont understand and see that i want to get help for myself and our family?

  14. Jeff says:

    I recieved a score of 41. I just read a book on Asperger’s by Tony Attwood.. it read like a biography describing my childhood until now, 28. I am in the process of getting a diagnosis on my own through the local hospital. When I mentioned that I took an few online tests designed to give an idea of whether or not I have Asperger’s (an on all of them my scores were all very likely Asperger’s) the counselor laughed, what did I do to make her question my seriousness? What do I say to get them to seriously look into this? They want to label me bipolar and I feel that that is an overly used term/diagnosis these days. I tend to ramble…hopefully this made sense. If you have any advice or questions my email is jspiker1@hotmail.com

  15. Ashley says:

    I got a 33 ive been wondering for about a year now I wasn’t sure. I’m 24 years old and my parents were never a great with helping not hurting my situation. They try to diagnose bipolar at one point. but later on I was informed I was misdiagnosed. I do have depression and anxiety. I could use some advice I don’t know where to go from here. Thank you

  16. Chuck says:

    I just got an 86% likelihood of having Asperger’s, which almost confirms my suspicion, after looking back on my dysfunctional history.

    So what do I do now?

    I am a veteran in Central Maine with no insurance and am wondering where to turn next.

    I’d be interested in taking the new 14 question RAADS-14 Screen, along with an MRI, but don’t know how critical these are to confirming diagnosis.

  17. keith patrick says:

    Diagnosed positive May 2013 (aged 66)Scored 46 on the test. My big problem? Do not ‘pick up’ when relationships are going down the tubes, therefore my partners walk away with no warning,leaving me stunned and bewildered!!!

  18. Richie says:

    I remember taking this test two years ago and scored a 32, i concluded and made myself believe that i really do have aspergers hence my constant bad mood, inactivity and loneliness. But the tendency to think about it drifted away, now i have retried the test after two years out of sheer curiosity and still got a 32 with a neutral state of mind, should i take this seriously?

  19. Hkt says:

    I don’t understand the fuss. I scored a 36 and I’m 21. I’m different, and I knew it since I was a kid. Being a coward doesn’t take you anywhere. Pity is the last thing I need; I stopped caring if people liked me. I don’t need help; I’d rather fail than ask for help. I haven’t been diagnosed with Aspergers but I know I have it. I’m alone. And the thing is, it’s better off this way. The world is a cruel place. Even the nicest of people are cruel. I’ve tested it. Nothing else to do but pursue my need for answers.

  20. N. says:

    When I was about sixteen or seventeen I scored high on every online Aspergers test I took. Awestruck with a possible answer to myself, I turned to my mother and told her, explained that I think this might be what has been troubling me since before I could remember. She laughed at me. I took her criticism to heart and didn’t try to self diagnose myself again.

    I’ve been trying to put a name to my oddness for years. I’m too poor to see a professional and be properly diagnosed. If I had the money when I was younger I would have gladly gone to a therapist.

    Now that I’m 22 I take the test again and score a 34. I don’t know if this is what’s wrong with me but I sure hope it is; I’m afraid of what it COULD be. I don’t have any friends. I hardly ever leave my house. I don’t have a job or go to school because its too frightening. I started a course at Tafe but had to drop out when the social aspects became too much for me to handle anxiety wise. I can’t even talk on the phone without my heart exploding with stress. My future looks bleak, but I’m becoming accustomed to it.

    Any females I try to make friends with think I’m arrogant/ stuck up because I’m “pretty” and am not outgoing. They think I’m boring and weird and end up hating me.
    Any males I try to make friends with tend to ignore my personality and chararistics in favour of my appearance and always (always) try for something a lot more than friendship. I end up hating them.
    Both leave me feeling far less than adequate.

    Sometimes I get the desire to take a pair of scissors to my long blond hair and cut it all off in a frenzy. Then the females would like me more and the males would not look at me as only an object to possess.
    But then I get scared. What if the only good thing about me is my appearance? Will I truly fade away into nothingness if I take it away? Become completely and utterly invisible instead of just mildly transparent?
    So I do nothing. I sleep. I dream. I talk with my mother. I live on the Internet, where no one can see or hear me and I can be free.

    Typing this up has helped me. I feel like I understand myself just a little bit better. Thank you for reading my tiny speech.

      I can relate to your story and have same aq just I’m 15 years older. You discovered how fickle people are – well done you! They say that you only make six real friends in your life, and it could be true – I find there are very few who can really step up so that our age-related worries will be relieved to some extent. I hope that you can feel happiness soon. Maybe see your doctor?to the mark when needed. There is plenty of time to meet other people – you still have your whole life ahead of you. You did well to get this far 🙂 I know I found my early 20s particularly distressing, it is a difficult age for anyone these days – you feel a bit in limbo. I would spend so much time feeling resentful of any attention I got, whilst simultaneously worrying about getting older, and finding the looks are all I had going for me so it’s a bit paradoxical – we should look forward to getting older! The looks are NOT all there is to you, so you keep learning about you, and write a thesis on it if you must because you must value yourself for your inner beauty above anything else.

    • Helen says:

      Also, volunteering can be a way to ‘get out there’ and feel useful, but on your own terms doing things you like? E.g. a friend of mine stewards for a theatre, so gets to watch shows for free. I personally like gardening, but it’s just a hobby. I have kids. I would like to teach ballet 1 to 1 but it would be difficult to fit in at the moment.

    • Dobre says:

      74bI have a 10 year old son who was diagnosed with Aspergers a year ago. I live in Venezuela, a coutrny where there is no home-schooling available, but I have been very fortunate with the public school he attends. My son is a calm, very intelligent, reading lover boy with no aggresive behaviour, so that has helped him. At the end of grade 3 he told me the other students had been annoying him and not including him in their play groups for 2 years!!! It all started when a teacher would blame him when he complained about other students annoying him, then the next teacher used him as a good example and why couldn’t the other students be like him!!! I talked and changed him to the A group instead of the B group (the same grade but divided into 2 groups as there were too many students). He had a man teacher who throughout the year managed to include my son socially with the new group, explain to them why he acts differently at times and they accept him now as he is, and I have witnessed the students calling him to play with them in recess. His biggest problem is not wanting to write at school: But, if the teacher knows it, and I do too, why should I write it???He is an expert on the computer, and loves reading enciclopedias on internet, so has a vast knowledge of many subjects!Today I talked to a specialist at the school about help with therapies and she was very interesting in helping and even offered more frecuently than I was going to ask for!!! (I had been told she’s from highschool and couldn’t attend primary students).I am a bit worried about high school in 2 years time (if he still won’t copy any work), but I think the secret is get to know the teachers well and prepare them for what they need to know to work successfullywith our Asperger kids!24

  21. Clamb says:

    As a mental health profession who has worked with and appreciated many wonderful Asperger’s Syndrome children and adults, it seems to me that the link with AS in the Newtown tragedy is that Adams parents fostered a special interest in guns that morphed into an obsession with violence. Given the tendency of AS individuals to have (usually benign or beneficial) special interests that can become near-obsessive in some cases, that was incredibly naive and unwise of the parents. And no severely despondent person, AS or not, should be given a gun for Christmas!

  22. lena says:

    I scored 32. It is not a surprise. I feel relaxed knowing that “feeling different” all my life, may have a name. I am 54, and the really difficult years were between 13 and 30, when I tried hard to cope with people. The results were very poor! Now, I suppose thinds are easier because I have accepted that I am a loner and the few people around me do not seem to have serious problems with my attitude.

  23. Tanya says:

    I was tested for aspergers as a child but i was showing signs of other things so they said they would re test me as teenager but never did now at 23 with 3 children of my own i am now being tested along with my 4 year old son. Nightmare.

  24. Shannon Devlin says:

    I get so anxious over tiny little things, i’ve always known it’s not normal and i’ve never gotten along with my stepmum, who i live with. I used to put it down to a typical mother-daughter relationship, but i know that my lack of social skills and concentration have always been a part of it. I also read an article that says that people with Asperger’s syndrom often develop some kind of obsession, examples given were celebrities and soap operas for girls. Mine have always been books and rock music. If anyone would like to read the article, i’ve left a link below. it feels great to know that i’m not the only one who feels this way, and that it is possible to get help.

  28. Pam Crane says:

    I am now 70. I have an Aspergers son who is now 46 and managing to live independently. Only in recent years have I wondered if I had Aspergers, as I live a full and creative life and have learned to cope with social situations despite being a loner. My wonderful husband puts up with my eccentricities and supports everything I do creatively and in the community. Coming to terms with having a label is quite a challenge … perhaps the balance of the population should have their own diagnostic label?! Now I have to decide whether to say anything …

    • Matheus says:

      cc6Nathan is 14yrs old he was diagnosed with Aspergers at 8yrs after spnideng 3yrs of Primary School in a Behaviour Support Unit seeing things he should not have been exposed to.The nightmare to come started at Secondary School, he was sent home on the 4th day because the staff could not cope, he was regularly bullied, verbally and physically, he would run off and try to come home. Luckily one special Teaching Assistant (Rob) formed a bond with Nathan and gradually by the end of the first year there was an improvement. Starting the second year, unknown to me they drastically changed the support, replacing Rob with a new T.A. Nathan’s behaviour deteriorated over the term and he was blamed for his behaviour, culminating in him being excluded. Nathan hit back at a pupil who had hit him and when a teacher tried but failed to restrain him Nathan was accused of pushing the teacher, the school did not believe Nathan had been provoked and took no action against the other pupil, when i told the Headteacher of a dozen incidents where Nathan had been bullied/assaulted, he suggested i move him to another school. I took the school to a Disability Discrimination Tribunal, the Judge decided that Nathan’s deterioation was to be expected because of his disability and the school was not at fault as it was not expected to have any expertise in Aspergers ! So we moved Nathan to another mainstream school 5 miles away with a new Autism Centre attached, we thought he would be better understood, WRONG! One day he became so stressed that he tried to leave, he was physically restrained by two teachers, he went berserk so they locked him in a small room, he had a meltdown and trashed the room, he was excluded for his behaviour! (later retracted) I told the staff not to restrain or confine him again as it makes him worse but they did it another two times, he shattered a panel of safety glass in a panic to get out (they sent me the bill for repair.. later retracted) i told them it was barbaric, i kept him off school and threatened to home school him, the psycologist advised against this. Nathan went back after Christmas, the staff backed right off and left him to make his own choices, he chose not to go to any lessons (although in advanced Maths, top of Science and good at Technology and Media) they thought boredom would change his mind, a wasted term later WRONG! he became dissafected and frustrated, i was called almost every day to go and pick him up. I had kept in contact with Rob the T.A. from the previous school and he came to our rescue. Such was his commitment to Nathan, Rob changed his job and went to work with Nathan at school, now 6months later Nathan is back on track and doing well, he only does mornings at present and does not access all of the curiculum, although reports say he will not fulfill his potential he is a lot happier thanks to Rob, i cannot imagine where we would be without him.In two years time Nathan will leave this school then i see only more problems ahead, The Education System and The Disability Discrimination Act have been no help to us in my opinion, in later life Nathan may well be haunted by his experiences and i fear he does not stand a chance in the real world.24

    Scored 38. Like someone else said, not sure if I’m just introverted or not. I don’t have a problem socialising, I just dislike it. I’d rather be at home and working on things. Currently learning trigonometry and soon to start on algebra, geometry and statistics in preparation for a computer science degree. Taught myself programming in various languages over the years and now developing mathematical abilities.

    I don’t *think* I have too much of a problem in social situations, its just I don’t enjoy them as much as other activities so naturally I partake less.

  30. Cory J says:

    The problem with this quiz for me was figuring out if I had asperger’s or
    was just an introvert/extreme introvert that had been scarred somewhere
    growing up. I myself was bullied, neglect from family and was constantly
    in school/daycare for all I can remember. I read that growing up in your developement stage
    you need lots of care and attention from family. I was constantly in school, daycare, babysitters. Also
    being an introvert for me to recharge I needed to be alone. I never had opportunities to be alone.
    It caused me to revert to myself and not talk to anyone at school.
    I was told that has caused me to fall way behind socially and
    almost despise being around people. Also for when I was bullied it gave me negative feedback on socializing on
    told me what I was doing was wrong. So I in turn never was able to develope properly.
    My therapist told me its like when a dog bites someone. That person then
    hates being around dogs for the rest of their life. Humans are the dogs
    in my case. I just had a very bad experience with children my age,
    uneducated teachers, family neglecting the care and I love I needed.

  31. Steven says:

    I feel so sad reading these comments. Especially because all these normal people have been told they have a condition that isn’t even real. Autism and Aspergers are real conditions. There is nothing wrong or broken about you just because you rather be alone than go to a party, or because you can remember someone’s birthday.

  32. aj says:

    I suspect there are far more people living with AS that when realize. When I had my friends do it several of them scored in the high 20s and mid 30s.

    To compare I had a few “normal” friends do it, they scored like 10 and below. I suspect this is as common as ADD and ADHD. These people never would have thought they were on the spectrum neither would their fams. They just seem a little quirky.

    Bl**dy hell! I’m walking the fine line between giftedness and autism… I was diagnosed “gifted” with weird differences (30 points) between my verbal IQ and my others, and a total of only 119. I thought there was something else going wrong. Now, I realise I’m average low at empathy tests, and I’m 32 at the AQ test. I think my special interest was “acting normal”, and I’m still a weirdo.
    If someone has informations about giftedness interferring with aspergers syndrome, please let me know.
    Cheers from France.

      I am gifted as well, I have a hard time understanding people’s feelings and also I can’t cope with other people’s emotions. Nobody likes me really, and I have an extremely hard time making friends.

    Well my son has severe classic autism. age 7 non-verbal. Daughter age 2 being assessed due to delayed development. took test for myself and my husband as i was interested to see if this is a truely genetic problem. I scored 33 and him 34. my husband told me the other day that when stressed he thought of prime numbers. Makes me suspicious? I have severe social anxiety, difficulty with chit chat, and no interest in fiction. He is a living calculator, terrible at eye contact and social interaction with those he doesn’t know. We both have obsessive interests to a degree. I know i have generated systems for financial analyse that i think are simple to understand but baffle others, and my husband has no common sense but an amazing intelligence. no need to go on i think. its devasting to have a child with severe classic autism.

    As a senior with aspergers I can look back at my life and say some of it was hell, but some of it was heaven. I have had some hugh successes and huge failures. Nothing happened when it should have and as it should have. In the end I still struggle, but it’s OK. To all of you young people who are so frustrated and angry at what life has dealt you (as I was), — find your bliss! Do what you are called to do. The hell with the rest. Your life matters. Your happiness matters. Don’t let the others bully you into conforming. You’ll be happier if you don’t try to be like them, and instead be yourself. I was only successful and happy when I stopped trying to fit in.

    I scored 33. I am 39, single, zero friends, spend my days at home. Afraid to go outside. I make sure none of my neighbors are outside when I open the door. I hate going shopping, I am even scared of the cash register, not because I am scared of people, but because I have nothing to say besides “hi”. I cannot even have a long and good conversation with my close family. When I do, I can never get my point across and nobody takes what I say serious. Many dont even trust me about asking me for the time! I came here because a girl was interested in my, like always, I open my mouth and when they hear what i have to say, or the worthless conversations..then they become uninterested in me. I just want to die sometimes…I want to go home. But I like to paint and I would like to leave some nice artwork to share before I leave. I would like to at least touch people with my art. I wish I can connect with at least one person in this world and to find love, but now I know that is impossible for me. Love you all and stay strong.

      Not many people know how it is to be screaming silently in your own head. I know EXACTLY how this feel. And some days, more often than I will admit to, will think about “leaving something behind” for my loved ones. We have to keep going. There has to be a happy ending. Because if there wasn’t…then what the hell are we waiting for?

      I’m getting married to the woman I been with for 12 years. I don’t deserve such a good woman and she doesn’t deserve such an a$$hole mouthed, crossing the lines, self-loathing, socially awkward, masochistic Aspie. My silver lining- she accepts me. But even after all these years together, when will I be able to accept myself? You would think that I

      My ONLY comfort is to hear from others that “THINGS GET BETTER” and from the bottom of my soul I say, “Thank You”. Three little words put me at ease.

      Things get better.

      Things get better.

      Things are getting better!

    i got diagnosed with aspergers sindrome when i was 13 , i have always had problems in my life like meeting new people, change and day to day routines.

    i have come to terms with this now as i am now 20 years old.

    people taking this test if u do have aspergers it is not soemthing to worry about it just is simply you being you! xx

    My score is 44, which meaning? or I have some hard problem?

    According to this test I am borderline. I think I would have been full-blown many years back. I am 36 now, and I have learned how to adapt in social settings such as meeting new people and making chit chat. Certain types of chit chat unnerve me and make me feel squirmy, but I usually find a way to be interested in other people. I have often been misunderstood, and it’s a painful place to be. I am very well-intentioned and caring. I operate on factual information, so I hate lying and rarely do. If someone asks me what I think they may get more than they bargained for, and though I have slowly learned what things people really don’t want to hear it is still hard to filter that. I am fairly matter-of-fact in the way I think, communicate, and live. I like having “rules” for how things are in my house. I didn’t realize I had them until my husband moved in, but the disruption in “my world” has been hard to work through, but we are making it.
    I feel like sometimes I am too serious and wish I could be as laid back as others about things. I think it is possible for people with aspergers to adapt to a degree because of their capacity for learning and mirroring, but it takes a lot of time and consciousness…that’s all based on myself and my own life.

    I was curious, since I had brain tumor removed 8 yrs ago from my front left temporal lobe on what my score is now. I scored a 21, which I found very interesting.
    I wish this test was available for me to take before my resection. Then compare the 2 results pre-op then post-op.

  42. Rolling says:

    I know I don’t have AS; I just took this out of curiosity. And I got 28!

    Incidentally, MBTI tests always give me either INTP or ISTP. I am a science major with artistic tendencies. But I have terrrrrrible social skills and difficulties with speech (I may try and get myself tested for a language-based learning disability, once I figure out how to do so).

    I have skills in multiple areas, but I can’t multitask. I hate being interrupted in what I’m doing, since it takes so long for me to “switch gears.”

  43. debbie says:

    Score = 44.
    I have always known I was a little different, frequently described as eccentric. I am in my mid 50’s and also an R.N.. Having trouble getting along with the gray shadey areas in a field that requires alot of flexibility. So now… what am I to think having scored 44 in this this quiz? I am very much in love with the same man for 20 years and no problems in my sex life. Is there something I should do?

  44. Stephen says:

    I have taken the test three times on different dates and scored 37 each time. So what should I do now? Accept that as self-diagnosis or go and see my GP? My Needs Assessor for University (I’m Dyslexic) suggested I had Asperger Syndrome.

  45. Andrew61 says:

    I scored 41 but knew I’m considered as having AS.We all know that everyone has problems but my whole life I’ve been ‘at odds with myself’-lacking self confidence,assertiveness and having very low self esteem,but trying to fight againt it (usually losing out to it!)-which gives one EXTRA problems,which isn’t nice to know!I think people not like this tend to want to think that people who are,choose to be like it(as they don’t like to think they’re better off!)Most men will have had a better time with the opposite sex than me,but the trouble with life is that one has to accept everyting (as Kate Bush once said!)but that’s the biggest problem in life,I feel!

  46. Don Keebals says:

    OK, so I scored at 38 as I took the test honestly, but before that, I tried the test with what I figured would appear as ‘normal responses’ and scored a 5. My MBTI type is INTJ (often referred to masterminds), and sport a 138 IQ. As a child I often felt out of place and different but wasn’t considered a loner. I would consider myself a realist rather than a pessimist or optimist. Am I worried that some cheesy, easy to manipulate test has diagnosed me as an Aspie? Ha, hardly…. I feel sorry for those over-emotional, irrational types that make me dance around their delicate feelings.

  47. Mr. Johnson says:

    I scored 14 on this test. According to the test, this is supposed to be a “normal” score. But I know that there is something that is not normal with me. I find it difficult to make friends and the part of a meeting or conversation when you are supposed to say “goodbye” feels so awkward to me, I don’t know why. And still I watch other people not having this problem. On the other hand I have over the years developed a special skill with “reading between the lines” and predicting people. The world is complicated though and I don’t think you can truly “read” people unless you know them very well. Sure you can read their emotions such as when they are bored by a story you are telling them but I don’t believe that it is always that easy to truly read their intentions. It’s also easy to pidgeonhole people and go like “I know your type” but then they do something that really surprise you. I really don’t enjoy reading fiction literature so it was hard for me to answer questions related to reading fiction literature. But I tried to respond as honestly as possible. I really enjoy meeting people and learning about them and their lives. So I generally don’t have a problem with social settings in general. But when it comes to lasting relationships; a totally different story and I don’t know why that is. I must admit though that sometimes I feel like I want to be rather alone than to be around people. But I think it is more closely related to to personal things that I have to deal with and worry about. I think that I am so preoccupied with my issues that there is really no room for another person in my life. And probably this applies to the people I would like to have a deeper relationship with as well. They are just as preoccupied with their lives as I am. And yet I sit here wondering what’s wrong with me 🙁

      There is a group of people who are very social and very good at reading body language.They can also have lots of other medical and learning problems, but not always.They have a micro deletion on Chromosome 21. The name of the syndrome is Williams Bauer.Look it up.It might be one more thing you can cross of the list, or not…

  48. Cassie says:

    I scored 46.. Im 19 years old from Australia. My mum thinks i have aspergers, ive had all the signs since i was young. At the moment I’m diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and Social Anxiety Disorder…which makes sence with the social aspect of things…

  49. Sarah says:

    I scored 34 and I am bipolar, but my psych doc told me there are asperger traits within bipolar? My partner(age 23) is awaiting a diagnosis for aspergers from the Psychiatrist after spending his whole life struggling with crippling social anxieties etc and he just scored 42. So I tested my daughter(12 years old) who has always been mum of the household because shes ALWAYS been extremely sensible and grown up for her age and she scored 12. So I’m thinking its possibly quite accurate?…. In our case that is….everyone is different
