I bet there's a few people here who either know or suspect that they fall somewhere on the spectrum. Take the AQ Test and post your results:

14.
Funnily enough, I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was a baby. 😐 I mostly "outgrew" it.

As the parent of an autistic child, I'd like to add that this test is bull**** and slightly offensive.

"Researchers at Cambridge University's Autism Research Centre developed this questionanaire to measure autistic traits in Adults".

http://www.autismresearchcentre.com/

"The mission of the ARC is to understand the biomedical causes of autism spectrum conditions, and develop new and validated methods for assessment and intervention. The ARC fosters collaboration between scientists in Cambridge University and outside, to accelerate this mission."

Seems to me the ARC are doing valuable and helpful work. If you have a problem with that take it up with them.

Proper autism diagnosis requires significantly more testing than an online questionnaire. My son spent countless hours with a neuropsychologist to get accurate answers. They may be doing valuable research, but this is not any form of a valid measure. Nothing aimed at you, Dirk. The offensive part is that whoever put that up online thinks a handful of questions answered by random people on the internet can tell them whether or not they fall somewhere on the spectrum. It demeans the struggle that is everyday life of someone with autism.

Edit:

It seems they acknowledge themselves that this is kinda bs.

" Our tests are posted on our website to enable free access to academic researchers. None of them are diagnostic: No single score on any of our tests or questionnaires indicates that an individual has an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). If you are concerned that you, or a friend or relative, may have ASC, please discuss these concerns with your GP or family doctor or ask the*National Autistic Society*(NAS) or equivalent charity in your country, for advice."

I think we should not correlate the "autis" with addicted to games or smartphones
