I enjoyed the following quiz:
taken from Cynthia Kim's "Musings of an Aspie" website:
i got 136 out of 200, so i most likely have Asperger's, which i knew already, but when i had an official assessment they said i most probably wasn't autistic, very frustrating because i know i am .
Well I decided to do the test again, I wanted to see how my mood would effect my answers.basically looking for answers, something to blame for my current mind set on.
My mood currently is a mixture of,sadness,worry,confusion,disbelief in myself. A cocktail of negatives.shacken and stirred.
So I am thinking my high aspie score is the reason, cause and effect.
I was secretly hoping my score would drop significantly. I did not lie, I was very honest even though I was looking for a low score.
The results are not what I wanted to see!
it does show how the test can vary though.
so emotional state can effect the results, it is therefore flawed.
I will do it again if I climb back up out of this dark hole and find the light.
ND /aspie score=190-200.
NT /Non Autistic =23=200.
Can I say how sorry I am that I came back here to be so negative towards being Aspergers. It should have been anger at me not the condition.
I hit a bad place recently at work and at home and suddenly realising I may well be aspie sent me over the top,
I went off researching more about Aspergers men, I kept finding unpleasant stories and accounts but have now found many that show the different sides of it.Some very uplifting and heart warming accounts.by partners and those who are Aspergers,
As is with most labels they narrow the item in question to make it simpler to perceive. This is not good and focuses on just one extreme type.
We are all unique regardless of which badge gets stuck to us, we all have different outside influences that make us what we are.
So I may well be aspie but that doesn’t make me a bad person.
I can work to change the negatives I have, I can try to give my own perspective on growing up and having a reasonable successful life.
Sorry if I offended anyone but at the time the anger or tantrum should have been directed to myself.
I didn't see it that way. You've been through a lot. Be kind to yourself.
A lot of these things can be subjective - you maybe have a core element in them but the rest is subject to fluctuations due to external influences.
Thank You jedders,I have been through an awful lot, not just coming to terms with autism but work is truly chaotic right now,and being a very recent grandfather, he is a charming little baby but the crying is as expected, nothing over the top but loud, I thought we had been and done our bit with babies Lol. Two daughters we had,
We look after him some weekends ,but as some here will know a massive change to routine, no usual timetable, our weekends are very fixed as a rule, so small shop trips,just ticking over, shops we don’t usually use, just about everything has changed,so different products.all your time is dictated by the little ones needs,quite right too,but chaotic for me, I have developed Hyperacusis,an increased sensitivity to every day sounds,cutlery being put in the draw,plates scraping on the table,even the dogs clatter as their claws touch the laminate floor,
Basically just about everything is stressing me out just lately, I think I need a few days of normality and fixed structure to balance things up.
Your score is so very similar to mine! Not quite as pretty as some of the others,but that again is subjective Lol.
reason for reposting is that the image vanished,
ok so about to try and add a screen captured image of my results to the aspie quiz.
the reply above has no image as do any of the others,
