I got this from my women's autism group.

It's a questionnaire to determine our levels of Monotropism (tunnel vision thinking, going into rabbit holes, focussing on details rather than the big picture).


Apparently I score crazy high on it.
Perhaps that explains a lot about why everything is always so intense for me, and I always feel trapped in my head.

"Monotropism is a person's tendency to focus their attention on a small number of interests at any time, tending to miss things outside of this attention tunnel. This cognitive strategy is posited to be the central underlying feature of autism."

I may have picked some of the wording on questions apart but I also have to admit that I am a bit strange in the context of the autistic spectrum. My diagnosis was actually PDD-NOS (you don't exactly have Asperger's, at least back in 1991, but you're still 'weird' in that direction) and I remember when the AQ/EQ tests were all the rage I actually scored past the far-side of allist/NT on both AQ and EQ.

As a reminder this is an assessment for Monotropism, a trait sometimes associated with Autism, not Autism directly. If you score high, please be sure to do further research into Monotropism, more information can be found: https://monotropism.org/


Monotropism Score: 177 / 235

Your Average: 3.77


This score suggests that you are more Monotropic than about 14% of autistic people and about 85% of allistic people based on data from the initial validation study.

Yes, but I also notice things that others don't notice.

Thank you for bringing this up, I saw somewhere else that everyone seemed to have very high scores in that quiz. Me included (210/235).
I don't know what to think of this theory and the people or person who made the quiz said that it still needs a lot of work, so I really wondered if there was anyone out there who actually scored low on it.

My boyfriend scored low.
He's not autistic, but the test is meant for all people.
