That is the question.

Only approximate to one answer.

All 'the other WP-Members' is meant in context of averages, not absolutes.

Autistic means your individual subjective all-inclusive comprehension of the state of mind of being autistic.

Judge by any form of information available, even if it is just loose impressions or emotions.

EDIT:
The reason I think this poll is important is to see, if you perceive yourself as more autistic only because you cannot overcome your subjective experience/viewpoint/difficulties or if it actually is because there is equally as much diversity on the spectrum as you might perceive. If there is a general gap between reality/perception, votes should go in one direction only.

I would pick the option "Neither more, nor less". Is this what you mean by "Never"? If so I would vote that (I want to be sure before I do so though).

Yes, that's what I mean. In other words, that you don't have that perception in the first place.

I perceive myself as more autistic than some WP members and less autistic than other WP members. I only think this is relevant when someone starts saying "This is what it is like for me. Therefore, it must be like that for everyone." I admit I am guilty of such statements myself, but I try to modify my views when I realize it.

Okay, then I think "never" fits the best. Voted. :)

I see myself being on the more autistic side, but certainly not on the very autistic side. If 100% = Most NT members. And 1% = the most autistic members, I'd see myself as a 40-30%.

I have no point of refference to base an opinion.

I'd say I'm about average here.

I'm more XFilesGeek than other WP members.

In fact, I'm the most XFilesGeek-ish person on this site!!

As for "autistic," I dunno.

Heh heh.

I'm the most "emimeni" person I know. In fact, I don't fit entirely in any box!

I would say less autistic than a lot on here, or maybe more able to cope.

Do you have a citation for that? Any peer reviewed and validated studies? :D

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I was diagnosed as Moderate Autism,
so I would say somewhere in the middle,
not more or less.

I feel I am more autistic than some and less autistic than others.

I voted based off of numbers of people and where I fit into that - i.e. "average" would be "approximately 50% percentile". That's how my intuition works when it comes to this question. I can't actually get an intuition of what "average" would be, and where I'd compare to that.

I don't really pay attention to that kind of thing. The other WP members are hear for the same reason I am. (Well, most of them, anyway.)
