Take the online Asperger’s Test

Do you 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.

So are you ready?

    I took the test suspecting I might be a bit of an Aspie but scored a lowly 17 – very surprised! Expected to be borderline at least. I’ve always felt like there was a gulf between me and “normal people” and generally find them stressful and problematic to deal with. A bit like being a Jew in Nazi Germany (although not quite that bad!) – continually needing to hide my “jewishness” because if the normals find out I’m not one of them then bad things will happen. And they do. Things like making small talk and keeping a conversation going with strangers or people I don’t feel any connection with (i.e. almost all people) is very hard and stressful. Often in an attempt to do my duty and keep the conversation going I end up saying silly or strange things (because i have to say something and can’t think of anything else), then they conclude I’m a weirdo. So of course I try to avoid being in those situations as much as I can, which means avoiding my fellow man for the most part. And I really don’t like looking people in the eye – it just feels inappropriately intimate. I look at their mouth instead, to focus on what they are saying.
    It upsets me a lot if my routines are disturbed, especially if it involves doing something spontaneous. I find it very difficult to do more than one thing at a time, and do frequently get so strongly absorbed in one thing that I lose sight of everything else.
    Sounds like Aspergers, right?
    But then there is a bunch of other stuff which caused me to get a low score on this test:
    Despite what I wrote above, I actually find normal people quite interesting – the stuff they get up to is often interesting and amusing. I quite like going to parties once in a while, as long as i can quickly get drunk there so that whatever i say isn’t expected to make sense. More fun than going to the library for sure. For the same reason I would rather go to the theater than the museum. As for reading fiction, I loved that as a kid and would like to read more now in middle age but feel too guilty about taking the time for it. Then there were questions about numbers. No I am not fascinated by dates or numbers. This is not because of lack of interest or ability in math – I’m a professional mathematician with phd and a bunch of research articles. Just not very interested in numbers for their own sake. It’s the cleverness involved in deriving mathematical theorems that attracts me. And I can’t even remember my own telephone number, let alone anyone elses.
    As for relationships, most ladies want a normal guy and they can quickly tell that I don’t fit the bill. A few of them are more broadminded though, and with those I have a chance. So i had a few relationships, but much fewer than a typical normal guy. Have now been married (mostly happily) for 15 years. My wife is Asian (I’m western), and I think the cultural difference together with the fact that my wife has a few (charming) quirks of her own makes her less aware of and focused on my own non-normalness. It helps that I’m pretty much ok at reading people, caring and feeling empathy (I think). Besides my wife I have no real friends, just a few friendly acquaintances who I might exchange an email or two with every few months. I like it that way.
    Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. Reading the comments was very helpful in thinking about to what extend I might be an Aspie (although I still don’t know the answer to that).

    • Delores says:

      DA, This is not the best test to take (example in my comment above). an too many of the questions were just reworded versions of previous questions it seemed to me. This was probably put together for a thesis of some sort.

      Asperger’s is so much more than this drop in the bucket. Asperger’s also can involve iagnostic criteria that includes motor dexterity, how well they handle frustration, whether there are sensory issues, and how they handle time. Sp, don’t take this online test for a diagnosis either way. Some of what you describe can be attributed to other disorders, and not autism at all.

      I am glad you found someone you can share your life with. It certainly make life a bit easier if you have a supportive partner (or friend) in our life.

    • Anthony says:

      I met someone by posting an add on kijiji that i was searching fro a female geeky buddy adn anne turns out to work fro the aspergers autism association here in lon while being idetnified when she was 42.
      WEll I =took the test and i scored a 35 over the below 32 which i figure dands much and yet am still confidetn after being sepereated by many people and nto having any true friends to talk to about real personal realationships onlyu to be totally on my own for the longest time
      even the oens sitting here from my old town are not my friends

  • I scored 26 which is borderline and I’m not surprised. I’ve always thought I was a bit different from ordinary people. I’ve been given a diagnosis of schizo affective disorder but I think I’m more an Aspie. I have all the attributes of an Aspie definitely when I was a child anyway.

  • Delores says:

    You really need to tweek your test to make the questions specific. For example, are you fascinated by dates? Ummm which one? the fruit or the numbers?

    Too many questions can be taken to mean different things. Please alter this to be more specific.

    Thank you.

  • Eric David says:

    Actually, I find this to be a fairly comprehensive (albeit, short at only 50 questions) test. My score was not surprising: 45 out of 50. The reason some of the questions are asked again (but re-written slightly) is an old-school testing technique to prove the answer is 1) honest and 2) accurate. As they specify, it is meant to be a tool and not an actual diagnosis (there are many aspects within Asperger Syndrome [formerly known as] that touch on other syndromes, so it’s undoubtedly a compilation of various other syndromes in my opinion. I understand why it was pulled under ASD, but I also understand why it should have been left as its own, separate disorder diagnosis. Autismresearchcentre also has some very comprehensive test documents and worksheets (that, ironically, include this exact test except in Word format – I prefer this site, instead) that help a person better pursue a specific direction if here is some doubt, still.

  • PJ says:

    I posted a comment (which I really should have copied and pasted on notepad, but didn’t) and the CAPTCHA Code* didn’t work the first two times. Why didn’t the code go through?
    My score was 86. I have ADD without the hyperactivity and SPD.

  • Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your web site accidentally, and I’m stunned why this accident did
    not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  • Gail says:

    Some people may fall more into the alexithymia syndrome but think they have aspergers. Alexithymia is Greek for ‘no words’ – unable to describe one’s own feelings or understand the strong feelings of others. This results in feeling rather isolated and unable to connect. Lot’s on the net and even a self test.

  • Norma Elisabet Samúelsdóttir says:

    I am from Iceland, 71 years old. I scored 29, but don´t know if I took all the test, it howed 50% but I don´t know where to continue, to she if I am asberger. I have always been different, had migraine since 18-50, then about 60 my partner, who is asberger (73) suggested me taking a test in Reykjavík, and because the sycologist (can´t spell it right , )) was not sure I was asp, he believed after tests that I was adhd with serious memory problem. (I, of course, had never heard of this, and was thrilled, because then I understand what was wrong, and that was because of some chemicals not reaching enough to my brain. (We call it ´boðefni´ in Iceland) but did´ nt know that there was such a thing) I did read somewere in this Asp.site a list of women with asp. and so many things I could easily make mine…f.exc. Not feeling comfortable with people around me, although they are close to me, some stress, and feel best when can have a day alone. Borderline with 29, but might have to answer more from the list? I write and paint, my partner is a writer, we have written book about us openly trying to communicate, he is really asp. but things look different if I myself is there also, by birth, add (not adhd), attention deficient disorder. – All the best.

  • have taken the test for a second time in a year and, unsurprisingly, again came up a s borderline (29) – I am often pre-occupied, appear very intense and socially awkward – with a Germanic sense of humour that is felt as wicked by some in an Anglosaxon context (have lived in the UK for 20 years now). At 62, I am so grateful, that I have abstained from any kind of therapy/diagnosis and simply taken the existential challenges on the chin. As the Aspie professor from Salford says in his blog – we are artists – with LIfe being our medium.

  • Shannon says:

    Hi. I’m 13 years old and I got a 39 on this quiz. Should I perhaps be concerned about this? If so, how shall I tell my dad or someone else? I’ve never been good at approaching/confronting people at all. I originally found out about this Syndrome when reading a book and found it matched a lot like me; The lack of Empathy and Sympathy, and I’m wondering whether a lack of Guilt is another symptom. The information handed to me was quite limited, unfortunately. I hope someone can reply to this quite quickly since I’m rather concerned about this situation. I’ve also read- not sure if it was on this site or not- that diagnoses costs quite a bit of money. I wouldn’t like to cause an uproar like that and then turn out to not even have the Syndrome. Also, many who believe the same thing have been dubbed ‘Attention Whores’ and such. I’m also worried that if I do decide to tell anyone about this, such as a physician or my counsellor, I will be named one as well and thrown in with people who are nothing like me. Perhaps there is a certain structure I need to speak in or a formulae? But they’d most likely try to interrupt me while I speak so I can’t be sure. Another thing, which I’m wondering, is that I have trouble with eye contact. I’ve made it before of course, though it scares me slightly. But now it’s to the point where I avoid eye contact by looking to the whites of their eyes and I don’t know if they’re looking at me still. I do this because I read that that’s why we have the whites of our eyes- They’re supposed to tell another person where someone is looking, though it seems not to work for me. I have trouble speaking and I prefer to be hidden. I hate people- or at least being face-to-face with people- and I’d prefer to home school if I had the money, though unfortunately for me, I do not. If anyone has any solutions or anything on this peculiar matter please do reply. And I apologise if I seemed too formal in writing this, I like to expand my vocabulary often.

  • Fahim says:

    I’ve taken this aspergers test and scored 39. And, It’s a great sign of autistic traits. I think, I need to get diagnosed and actually see whether I’ve aspergers or not. Thanks for sharing this test online.

    • Errol Flack says:

      I got 38 last year & 40 yesterday.Last year I was drinking alcohol more so as to be more sociable but I am an alcoholic so I stopped.

  • Jack says:

    I am 14 years old and after multiple people pointing out that I have autistic symptoms/traits (including my mom), I decided to take the test, thinking that I’d probably get a 12 or 13… and then I scored a 42… I don’t want to talk to a therapist because I am terrified of talking to people I don’t know. I don’t know what I should do, I’m kind of embarrassed that I scored pretty high.

  • Rachael says:

    I am 35 and was just made aware of the syndrome took a test and found that I scored a 41. I have known for a long time, that I think differently than most people, but having read a little about it and seen a video or two things make a little more sense. In a way, it’s kinda freeing to know that I’m not mentally impaired or stupid.. all of which I’ve wondered about in the past.

  • David says:

    I have been diagnosed as schizoid but I scored 44 on this Asperger’s test. I can’t visualise. I can’t drive. I am 51. I look a lot younger than I am. I am vegetarian. I get car sick and sea sick. Playing video games makes me feel nauseous. I can’t tolerate loud music and strong smells (tobacco and coffee are particularly revolting). I can’t stand chatter and prefer being alone. I find it difficult to concentrate and I have a poor social memory.

  • Aidan says:

    I scored 42 here. I was officially diagnosed a few months back at the age of 54, but the Psychologist did it without my doing any test. He just asked me lots of personal questions for 20 minutes, and noticed I made very little eye contact with him when I was talking.

  • Dapper Muis says:

    I know I have Aspergers, but was interested to see what the results would be. I scored 35. Surprisingly, or should I say not surprisingly answering the questions was hard for me. Many depending on the situation I could have answered in more than one way. In many cases taking a middle road kind of approach to things I wasn’t sure on. Which means I could most likely have scored even higher if I knew exactly what was wanted in an exact situation. Multipile answer questions where the answers are subjective for someone like me is a nightmare. So a 7 minute questionair will take WAY longer than that. Paper work in general is a nightmare as I don’t always know what the people want.

  • Louis charles XVI says:

    Scored 38.
    who do i seek for Helpful information.
    This test could explain my diagnosis of adhd and or other.
    Age 28, never felt like i belonged in this noisy fast moving world. I what is i. The countless addition of information classified through my hippocampus could ever be so irritating. Spontanious fits due to the sounds and gestures from commotion around as if i were to swat away a fly. Well thats that. Hi earth.

  • Ellen​ Franks says:

    Scored a 34. ….. Always felt weird growing up. Too touchy for affection but hated to socialize.

  • Is this the CAPTCHA code?

  • am.bot says:

    I’m 34 years old and just recently become aware of autism spectrum disorder and asperger’s. I scored 35. Makes sense of my behavior especially in social situations and interactions. Haven’t tried consulting a doctor on this.

  • BeardedMan says:

    I scored 38… neat

  • Carol says:

    I am a parent of 4 sons. Mach 2 is in his 40’s and recently diagnosed with Aspergers, Mach 4 is in his 30’s and was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 14. Mach 3, also in his 30’s, was recently diagnosed with ADD traits and he says that these traits etc. are passed down from the Mother which made me take the Aspie quiz this morning. Turns out he could be right as my score was 39, 32 being positive for Asperger”s syndrome. Maybe its a bit late in the day to be officially diagnosed however having an understanding of the symptoms brings clarity and areas of my behaviour and life experiences now make a lot of sense. The light came on!

    • Raquel says:

      is never too late 😉
      I was diagnosed with OCD, Anxiety and Depression 3 years ago (i am 38 now), and also took this test and my score is also high (35).
      As they mentioned there are shared symptoms so you can learn a lot from tips that have help other people.
      Knowing why I felt so different from pears, family and others, without blaming myself in the process, has been very reasuring.
      Having so many members in the family that understand your challenges, would have been a blessing for me :), I am glad you have such an amazing family

  • Lizbeth Madueno says:

    I have a nephew that I am suspecting to have Aspergers syndrome. I don’t want to tell him about this. I am planning to print this test and ask him to answer the question. I would like to know what is the score in order to determine if he has Asperger syndrome. Can you please tell me, so I can help him. He is going to be 27 years old this year. Please reply. Thank You!

  • Jacob says:

    Just got a thirty-five, should I go to a doctor or whoever get myself tested or am I good. I’m 14 so…

    • Magdalene says:

      Yes, if you score this number and think about Wether you’re autistic, you should see a good doctor, best a psychiatrist specialised on the matter and on working with teens! I’m not saying that means you’re definitely autistic, but you should make sure. Because the earlier you’re diagnosed and get the right therapy, the higher are your chances for a good life with this! I was only diagnosed aged 34 and my life was hard. Really hard. It could have been much easier and I would have suffered much less would I have been diagnosed and got help at your age. So, please, seek a clinical test and Wether you have Aspergers or not, you’ll know for sure and you will be able to go on from there. Wishing you all the best!

  • Donald K. Hull says:

    I just took the test, but put an incorrect email address and clicked. My name is Don Hull and I asked that info on being formally diagnosed be dent to [email protected]. he correct address is [email protected]. Lynne is my so, power of attorney and is a therapist. I am dying, am not on pain, so no morphine is in my body, but in order to donate my brain for Autism research I need to be formally diagnosed. I am due to pass bu early May. I am in PA, am no longer mobile/. I would be willing, but the exhaustion it would cauuse me would render the test invalid. I am in Zip Code 19003, Ardmore, Pa

  • Dan says:

    wow i have 41 score is that very high? I am diagnosed asperger like 2 years.

  • anon says:

    This test doesn’t differentiate between male and female aspergers

    • Magdalene says:

      You’re right, most test don’t, though they should as the autistic traits show themselves differently in men than in women.

  • iulian petrea says:

    got 37. I dont think i have Aspergers.
    As far as i knew Aspergers was declasified. I think it was replaced by some social anxiety disorder.
    I might be wrong.

    • Leanne says:

      Hi it’s not declassified as such the condition has been included in the DSM 5 under the Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis and criteria. It still exists.

    • Magdalene says:

      Yeah, you are wrong. Asperger never was declassified nor is it the same as a social anxiety disorder. Aspergers is part of the Autism spectrum disorder (ASS) and is diagnosed as such. So there was merely a reclassification according to new scientific research. Hope that clears things up.
      I have Aspergers, by the way (clinically diagnosed) and even though its called high functioning autism in America, Aspergers aren’t functioning well or easily at all! It’s just called that because the learning and speech impairments aren’t as severe as the autism on the most severe end of the spectrum. I still suffer from extremely intensified senses, sleep disorders, a unique way of processing speech and severely impaired social skills due to a dysfunction in theory of mind and many other issues that come with this disability. I’m not saying there aren’t positive aspects, there are. I’m highly intelligent, creative and able to think outside of norms in a highly structured and complex manner and extremely fast. I’m very efficient at some tasks others would need a lot of training to achieve, but at the same time I’m unable to do stuff that society deems easy, normal and necessary. The social anxiety you mentioned comes from that and depression is also often a comorbidity. Hope that helps, best, Magica

      • vrno says:

        Nope, you are not Asperger. And if you are on a “spectrum”, then who isn’t? Everything is spectrum, even normality. If you function in the world, you are fine. The Swedish study tracked 7000 adult autists for decades. Results just published. The first study of adult autism ever. According to the study, the average lifespan of an adult autist is just 37 years! Now think about it.
        Psychologists charge insane prices, $200 per hour or more. They need to “give” diagnoses in order for money to flow toward them, that’s it.

  • Mat says:

    people with the syndrome maybe are “underdogs”, but look at how many famous and rich people had it in the past.
    Not the syndrome defines the person.

  • Calvin says:

    I got 37 should I talk to a doctor?

  • Michael says:

    I got 42, and I was diagnosed with borderline Aspergers when I was little, about 5 years old. Should I still worry about this?

  • Ismael says:

    I score 37. I began suspecting I was Asperger a few years ago. I’m 39 and I’ve never being diagnosed officially. Now I’m having for the first time in my life problems at work where having an official diagnose could make a difference.
