My score from last year:
My total was 137, compensation was 47, masking was 47, and assimilation was 43.

I try to mask a lot, or at least used to.

I retook the test:

CAT-Q: 156
Compensation: 57
Masking: 47
Assimilation: 52

Two of my scores were higher than last time, and all of them were higher than autistic and NT men, women, and nonbinary people.

I use he/him pronouns.

I like playing video games, watching cartoons and anime, reading, and cooking.

I have two cats, a rabbit, and a dog. I also enjoy learning + cataloguing information about different types of animals and plants.

Empathy Quotient: 34/80
Systemizing Quotient: 104/150
Friendship Quotient: 56/140
Autism Quotient: 36/80

RAADS-R: 169

CAT-Q: 153
Compensation: 57
Masking: 47
Assimilation: 49

Your broader autism cluster (Aspie) score: 144 of 200.
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 63 of 200.
You are very likely on the broader autism cluster (Aspie).

I tried :

CAT-Q : 116
Compensation : 38
Masking : 35
Assimilation : 43

Well I often choosed mild assesment as answers. I feel like I'm in the middle of the road on most items.

I try not to shock people in social situations, without hoping to "nail" my social interactions so I guess I just make sort of do most of the time.

I never heard of this quiz before so I took it :arrow:





I'm not entirely sure what these results mean. I'm very much aloof in social situations. I try to sound friendly when interacting with others but that's pretty much it. I almost never notice things like body language & facial expressions but I have a rare low vision disorder & my brain can have problems processing things I do see & I probably have that face blindness disorder. I don't learn social interaction from watching or listening to others like NTs do it. My brain just does not process that. I may as well be listening to people talk in Chinese or watching people do trigonometry problems. I can watch & listen but it is way over my head & my extremely slow mental processing speed as well as my ADD causes me to quickly tune out & be bored. I actually did not even know that eye contact was important to NTs until I joined this forum in my mid 20s. I thought eye contact was something that was mostly done when trying to lie or to determine if someone is lying.
