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.
still go my score.....
missing you and Spotty, Missfit et al....I sailed off the find Aspie utopia...then got grounded by a group of hidden underwater rocks called the Neutrotypical Needless...and then cast adrift by a nasty undercurrent...
i can now wave and drown at the same time! Lol x
Hi Ellie good to see you are still about! Your score has a similar shape to mine...
Thank you Jonesy... you are a wondrous singing Nefertiti! Hope all is well with you
Jonesy, yours reminds me of Bart Simpson. Do you have any similarities to any of the simpsons?
LOL yep I can see what you are getting at.... I'm nothing like Bart tho.... closer to his dad but without the love of sports and beer
I'm OK thanks Ellie ...suffering from a little bit of a vacuum post diagnosis coming to the realisation that very few people in my life of the ones I've told understand what my diagnosis actually means...some family members appear to not give a monkeys or just dont want to discuss it, I expected this of some but one particular cousin who I thought I was close to has proven otherwise which I'm quite sad about as he was the closest thing I had to a brother... so my adjustment has been to just try and be nice to myself and cut myself some slack, something I'm not great at but at least I have control over that.Are you any closer yet to deciding whether to get a diagnosis or not?
The dads the best, I just couldn’t remember his name!
DOH!!!... its Homer
Hahaha of course! I’m clearly as good at remembering names as I am faces! Lol! Doh! One of the gifts of autism that I have grown to love! I remember Marge (I think), the Mum. She’s great, totally kick ass!
We have a habit of seeking acceptance and validation from everyone but ourselves... you are a wonderful being Jonesy...don’t judge yourself against someone else’s checklist but your own. Closed minds don’t want to spend time thinking outside of their own box. This is your diagnosis and your journey and it hurts a hell of a lot...give people time to process and try to love and accept YOU x
