My problem with the test is that it is likely to give lots of false positives, as one poster pointed out if you live in a high crime area then a person behind you might been you are about to be mugged.

The Excessive social anxiety, odd or eccentric behavior, no close friends and odd speech are par for the course with AS. Also past mistreatment makes a person much less trusting of their fellow man and their environment. When I was young a nasty bunch of NTs made my life a living hell, for years afterwards I was always on a very high state of alert. The technical term is hypervigilance. I would say that hypervigilance is a rational and reasonable reaction to an environment packed with threats, the problem is when a person can not adjust again when they are placed in a safer low risk environment.

As years have passed I am much less hypervigilant than I used to be, I have started to relax a bit.

Only as a child I experienced thought broadcast/irrational fears but I don't think they were really psychotic but more of an expression of social ignorance and anxiety.

My Total SPQ-A: 73 out of 74
(First I got the result 74 out of 74, but I realised that I do find close friends important.)

My psychologist has diagnosed me as psychotic.
It makes me frustrated. I don't want to have a psychosis!

Ive been dx'ed schizotypal several times as well as schizoaffective and disorganized schizophrenia on various eval's.
I think the combination of aspergers and schizo helps with creativity but not so much with cognition.

If I'm schizophrenic, I'm only the highly suspicious, pattern-noticing type, and I fare pretty well without medication. My sister, on the other hand, has actually had hallucinations. Maybe soft-core schizophrenia just runs in my family and my sister got the worst of it. I was also raised with a lot of religion, which may have permanently damaged my emotional reactions to things. My parents, neighbors, and religious leaders taught me to see patterns in everything, believe that I was sharing space with angels and demons, and that God was reading all of my thoughts. I really wish I had been raised secularly.

Quite a bit of overlap with AS related questions as previously commented.

Hmm, 58.5

...but as the saying goes, just 'cause you're paranoid it doesn't mean they're not out to get you 8O

Some of that score comes from self-protection, which i've had to do from an early age, so if i'd have had more support I may have needed to be less wary. It's a scary world out there.
