This quiz is supposed to tell you if you have Asperger's syndrome.
Disappointingly, my score was 28, which is only marginally Asperger's
(26-31). I'd thought I'd do better than that, since I'm rather
detached from other people and tend to be absorbed with my
own interests. Full-blown Asperger's requires a score of 32 or more.
Mine was 23.
Ugh, trailer trash - not even close to Asperger's!
I was thinking about actually taking the test three times,
but I didn't have the ambition. Test one would have been to
answer the questions in a way I thought would have resulted
in a false positive. Test two would have been to answer the
questions in a way that I thought would have resulted in a
And test 3, which was the actual way that I did it, was to
answer the questions as objectively as I could, but to be
honest, I'm not sure how honest, I was. :-)

He was totally sold on Bach but felt that Mozart died
too late, not too soon. His performance of Mozart's
K394 fugue from K.394 (that I've nearly mastered
now) is an insult to Mozart, IMO. His Bach is super
I play that fugue pretty well myself, though not
as well as Gould. In the video, you can see the
piano chair (sans seat) that Gould's father made
for him when he was a kid, which Gould took with
him from performance to performance all his life:
typical Asperger's behaviour. At least I used to
play it pretty well. I almost quit playing piano for
at least five years, and have just gotten back into
it but haven't played that fugue recently. I'm
sure it will come back quickly when I do play it,
