I just took a test online and scored as more neurotypical than aspie. How is this possible? I was diagnosed with asperger's since age three! :?

Your Aspie score: 86 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 126 of 200
You are very likely neurotypical

Oh, and the quiz can be found here for anyone interested.

Perhaps you had interventions that helped you learn how to fake NT better? I'm curious what they are if you have.

OK, this is wierd. My score:

Your Aspie score: 122 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 83 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

The pattern:

Image

It looks very different from how it used to look.

Does this mean I am an aspie that communicates better with NTs?!?!? :cry:

That STINKS(said in a little kid whiny type voice for effect!)! :x

I liked it better before when everyone I thought was a true Aspie had the SAME type of pattern on the graph. That was NEAT! :(

One more thing:

No Question Choice Aspie NT
28 Do you enjoy meeting new people? 1 0.00 2.35
29 Are your views typical of your peer group? 0 0.00 0.00
30 Do you enjoy hosting or arranging events? 0 0.00 0.00
31 Do you have an interest for the current fashions? 0 0.00 0.00
32 Do you prefer the company of those of the same generation as yourself? 0 0.00 0.00
33 Do you enjoy gossip? 0 0.00 0.00
Aspie score in this section: 0 of 0
Neurotypical (NT/non-autistic) score in this section: 2 of 19

Don't NTs like ALL of this? What answer would have given an AS score?

Or what about:

NT HUNTING
No Question Choice Aspie NT
102 Do you find it difficult to take messages on the telephone and pass them on correctly? 0 0.00 2.35
103 Do you drop things when your attention is on other things? 0 0.00 1.57
104 Do you have problems filling out forms? 0 0.00 1.96
105 Do you find it hard to recognise phone numbers when said in a different way? 1 0.71 0.20
106 Do you have trouble reading clocks? 0 0.00 1.18
107 Do you mix up digits in numbers like 95 and 59? 1 0.51 0.20
Aspie score in this section: 1 of 7
Neurotypical (NT/non-autistic) score in this section: 7 of 8

I get almost a perfect NT score for this?

Well, your score is closer to what mine was last time, and your graph DOES look closer to what I remembered. As for my score changing, some of the questions are kind of iffy. That is the reason why, on the last two tables, I had so many 1s. Ideally, it should be 2s or 0s. Still, every time I have taken it, whether I answered as now, or as I remember when I was a kid, generally, or subjective based on the moment, it said I am probably an aspie, or something stronger. So I guess, subjectively, I am happy for that.

I ALSO wrote a letter to one of the persons managing some AANE get togethers. I hope Jamie is comfortable, and answers my questions in a way I am comfortable. I might just end up getting involved there. Anyway, I told Jamie... If I DON'T have AS, it is DARN close!

It is just a test. That happened to me, too. And I do have AS.

It might depend on the day as well. I dont think that youre not an aspie just cause the test looked different. If i take it a million times in a row, i bet mine will look slightly different as well. And your score still said you were aspie so :)

Oh well, there IS still a PARTIAL pattern, except on Brandon_M's. Talent, Compulsive, and activity, on the AS side among the highest. And that WAS the most prominant area before.

This thread is an illustration of the discrepancy between online tests and clinical diagnosis.

How so...I scored 163/200 and was DXed AS. It seemed pretty accurate for me.
