Just tried the quiz -

Your Aspie score: 175 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 36 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

Well, that just confirms things....now on towards dealing with it all. I'm certainly relieved. Being in a country where Autism is little understood outside of the stereotypes, it's been hard fitting in, it was hard enough in the UK but in France it's something else altogether. I've been listening a lot to Bowie singing "Life on Mars". It's certainly interesting because it took many years to learn skills I needed in the UK and being in France has made me feel really alien - the social cues are different etc. Should this be another thread?

I guess there isn't much to actually do apart from start enjoying being different instead of trying to hide it and failing! Anyone else out there living in France?

I don't get the impression that France is a very nurturing country for people of difference (my distant ancestors got chucked out) but they might put your nature down to just being foreign. I heard that can happen?

You certainly do raise an interesting point - the social cues and body language would all be different. I certainly wish you well.

Thanks for your reply! I'm learning - I've been busy listening to the other teachers at lunch and used some stuff they do to keep the students in order - finally had enough today and went into action - I'm far too nice and restrained but meltdown was approaching! So I used their strategies and it worked. Oh, but it is a long haul and exhausting. To get them to listen I really have to make eye contact...and the body language is soooo much bigger than at home in Britain...

Some of my little eccentricities are certainly interpreted by the filter of my being foreign. That can be quite fun - like being a martian disguised as an earthling disguised as a martian.. LOL

Wow, yeah! ( I had a friend, lived in a house where the wood was painted to look like wood. ) I learned a language once, and then I
went there, and it was a country where English-speakers just don't do that, and they were so appreciative and nurturing of me, it was a lot like starting over again. They didn't know I had an extra layer of funny, just that I had tried.

I don't get the hunting thing. Aspies like jumping over stuff? What the heck?

I leaned NT on the hunting part. I notice that the others who posted their results on this thread also leaned NT in the hunting category.

I call shenanigans on the hunting category.

There is an Autism/Asperger test created by a Doctor called Ritvo, it takes into account the differences from when you were under 16, and then over 16. I think it's reasonably accurate...


Now that's something I've run into - the possible effect of adaptation (over time and with experience). I am 48 and leaning towards a self diagnosis of ASD. My AQ was 39 when I answered for my present performance levels. However, when I took the quiz again, answering as I remember myself at 18, my AQ was 43. There are numerous ASD symptoms that might be overcome with behavior modification and I believe that might have happened in my case.

How do you take the 'Ritvo' test? I couldn't find naught but Ritvo's website where I had to e-mail them for a response.

And the other test mentioned here I took, with the following results:

Your Aspie score: 159 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 56 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

Again, I feel that some of my answers were experience or age 'adjusted' responses. When I was a kid I would have probably scored much higher in the 'Aspie' domain. Of course, I do not know for sure that I 'have' ASD but I'm very convinced of the likelihood that such is the case.

Ritvo test= scroll down to bottom of this article (page 8 onwards)

http://aspdx.org/doc/RivtoAdultASDTest%5B1%5D.pdf

If you do all of the adding up suggested at the bottom, the idea is that:
ASD people scored between 44 and 227
Non-ASDs scored between 0 and 65
So if you score over 65, the theory is you could have an ASD- but bear in mind that average scores for Autistics was 139, and for Asperger's was 131.
