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.
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,
I thought I would give this a go
Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 191 of 200Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 13 of 200You are very likely neurodiverse (Aspie)
I can't work out how t post my graph sorry

Hi song, sorry I didn’t get a notification of your reply. How interesting your score is similar to mine.
We all we’re doing the test back four months ago and it was a time When many new friendships were made, it cheers me to go back and see the carefree exchanges we shared,
we have each kind of drifted a little, but friends who will never be forgotten and will always be around should a need arise,
@ Spotty tortoise.
and many others who joined in and gave happiness and understanding,
we all kind of came here around about the same time which was a weird time as this forum was undergoing a new change in layout, sadly many left, some didn’t agree with the lack of formality. Off topic was a big contentious point.
some of us were rebellious, we voted to have the leader board removed, it was a league table, no one wanted to be at the top or be seen to be better or higher in any way. It was removed due to popular agreement.
we set up areas within the forum for random light hearted topics, it helped us all. We would spend a great deal of time and energy trying to help newcomers as best we could, it inevitably caused us to feel drained and we needed a time to recharge,
a time to lift our spirits. A time to act like our inner denied childhoods, we could play and be imaginative.
People do come and go, but one thing is for sure, everyone that comes here with Autism has been kind and understanding,
no one judges anyone else, we just all try to get by wth support and understanding.
well I certainly paint a pretty picture.
it was and still is. Take care and welcome aboard,
aspie hugs are my speciality. They are virtual and you need not accept one,
Oh and I am a fifty five year old Male with unique wiring Lol.
I will leave that one to explain another day.
Thank you, our scores are very similar. Even including that my only NT result is a spike in the relationship section. I don't like the sound of a league table, never have been very good with competitions. I'm pretty convinced at the moment that my diagnosis from assessment is going to come back saying that I'm very normal, so this test was somewhat reassuring.
Thank you for my virtual hug.
