Your Aspie score: 148 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 64 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

From what I've seen so far, looks like I'm closer to being an NT then most of you are....*shrugs*

What's funny is that I've gone for testing once, and the Psych. was kind of dismissive with me. He said I sat right on the border of Asperger's but that he would not diagnose me with it. He said that a lot of my personality issues are just "who I am" and that I would have to find ways to overcome it. I was on a high dosage of Zoloft at the time, and this may be why my testing went the way it did... I don't know. I've noticed my aspie traits coming back much stronger since I got off the meds. I haven't gone back for a diagnosis since the aforementioned one (which was 3-years ago).

and i got a professional asperger's diagnosis from a psychiatrist trained in this when i was 9.


Bogus? If you two answered truthfully (I've seen Tim claim almost 0 in Aspie score and 200 in NT score), and without regard to your coping abilties, I frankly cannot see how you ever managed to get an ASC diagnosis. Alex, for instance, has high scores on social & social conformity-issues, he is above normal in typical communication, has no sensory issues and no compulsive behaviors. He additionally seems to have no stims, and no odd communication either. He is excelent on math and verbal communication.

Alex and Tim both have probably learned so that is why they score so low. If they answered the questions about their childhood instead of their adulthood, then their score would be a lot higher. I have done that once and my score was higher close to 180. When I took it again answering questions as an adult, my score was about 30 points lower. It just showed how much I have improved.

Another method is to ask somebody else to fill out the quiz for you, with you doing any subjective questions that they can't observe (like "I feel" or "I think" things). That way you can eliminate the effect of poor insight. Example; I'm not sure exactly how bad my social skills are--that's poor insight; comes from not being able to see myself "from outside", through an observer's eyes. It's not too bad because I'm aware that I don't know; but not knowing, and not knowing that you don't know, can be a real problem when you're trying to understand yourself.

This is kind of where I'm at at the moment.

I seem to get conflicting opinions from different people: not helpful.

Sometimes people say that there is an issue.
Other people don't want to change me.

What should I do then?

It's like I'm a goldfish and I want to study goldfish, but I'm the only goldfish in the goldfish bowl I really know of at the moment.

Now that I'm more into my normal (autistic) mindset, I took the test again, answering VERY truthfully, and this is what I got:
Your Aspie score: 153 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 55 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie
Image
This is probably as accurate as it can get.

I've taken the quiz twice. first time I got an aspie score of 144 and NT 64(?) and second time I got 149 and 56. It was only in the space of about 2/3 months aswell. Oh s**t I'm getting worse 8O although my score would've haver been higher when I was a kid though, probably 150/60 something.

When I took mine, I accounted for the fact that some of the issues I used to have as a kid I don't anymore (the sensory ones, for instance) by answering "sometimes."

I think "hunting" is how you approach things around you, what it is that catches your attention in things around you. For example, having fascinations with certain things, and the way your brain is able to process information. It's not literally "hunting", but I guess it's like hunting with your mind. While perception is in terms of how you feel things, hunting is what you make of things and in what way you do that.
