aspergers and me

mactavish found this quiz which has a strange picture to accompany the results.

Your Aspie score: 163 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 35 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

The current question is what on earth do they mean by "hunting." my guess is that it has to do with procurement of: objects, necessities, information, assistance, maybe a few other things. I'm not sure though.

but yeah. you knew I was weird. now you know why.

ok I'm going to return to reading the book I was reading before I became obsessed with this quiz.

Don't know if this will come out in the comments, but this is me:


I'd like to know, what did they mean by "oppositional defiant disorder"--in the little info-gathering questionnaire about birth year and gender and stuff? I might well have "ODD". Well, I just looked it up in Wikipedia; it's mostly diagnosed in children. Still, I feel more oppositional and more defiant than my peers.

well if I click on the url I get your graphic. to get it to show up on this page you have to put regular html <img> tags around it and remove the wiki/forum [img] tags.

ODD is a fairly new one and I think it is one of the most egregious forms of medicalization of normal childhood behavior that psychiatry has yet performed. of course that's probably because I'd score very high for ODD. :)

to me all it means is "child has mind of his/her own" and, possibly, "parents are oppressive and abusive." or both.

I am more normal than you are. Is that a good or bad thing?

haha! I guess that's up to you to decide. it probably makes your life a little less messy than mine, but I do at least have very, um, interesting problems.

how interesting are your problems? that's all that matters, really. :)
