Do you feel like it changes over time? I know the online AQ test seems silly to some and I don't it take I that seriously but I do take it online from time to time, out of curiousity.
My autism quotient is slightly higher than it's been in the past and I definitely feel like I've been struggling more lately, mostly just getting completely obsessed with things and not being able to pull myself away from them. I've been this way in the past but it really always has been a touch and go thing.

Anyone else?

I do find them to be a little out there. Who makes those tests up. I mean, get real!

Leading autism researchers such as Baron-Cohen at the University of Cambridge's Austism Research Centre.

Though online intepretations and shortenings of the test specified in the literature won't be as accurate, and neither are a basis of diagnosis alone.
