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.

==================
However some of the Asperger folks are excellent employees for certain
kinds of skills that require emphasis on numerical detail etc
On hiring them, you know you are not hiring them for their social
skills. They can be taught to fake (shall we say) emotions.
A father of one of these folks started a business just
for these folks. They are highly productive when given
jobs that don't require social skills.

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
false negative.

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. :-)

. . . OK, I just took the test again to see if I could trick
the test into thinking I had aspergers and it looks like I
was successful. My new, "improved" score is 44:

Your AQ Test Score is: 44
The official criteria for Asperger’s Syndrome is an AQ score
greater than 32.

That is sensational! Maybe you can play piano
like Glenn Gould now. He had his problems though.
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
though.


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,
though.

It is only a "test" just like tests for color-blindness or
and eye exam....You don't "pass or fail" The results are
diagnostic. You can't go back and do the test over
because you either were spontaneous or not.
Musicians are generally like mathematicians.
It's all about patterns. If you are reading music
it is a math formula.

Youse guys are obviously boring. "Normals" are
boring, as all psychopaths know. We psychopaths
are "interesting", or perhaps more accurately,
people realize they'd better keep an eye on us.

Uh oh! With that low of score one must worry about having
inverse-aspergers. :-)

----------------

"What would someone with the opposite of autism / Asperger's
Syndrome be like?

Very social, empathetic, friendly, and verbal, but often
clueless about mathematics and mechanical things and the
like, and often having difficulty following routines or
concentrating on some task.

There is no psychiatric syndrome recognized for such a
state, possibly because those with inverse Asperger's may be
able to lead relatively normal lives, using their social
skills to get others to do mathematical and mechanical tasks
for them.

But there is a condition that includes an inverse-Asperger
condition: Williams syndrome, also mentioned in Girls, Boys,
and Autism. The article Different Minds discusses the
mentality of those with this condition in great detail; its
inverse-Asperger character is very evident.

It is caused by a deletion of a bit of Chromosome 7, which
causes other abnormalities, like connective-tissue
abnormalities that give those with this syndrome an elfin or
pixie-ish look. In fact, this condition might even be the
original inspiration of elves and the like."

I'm surprised there wasn't a question about if you like bribing people to
get attention. Some people send their grandkids a couple thousand for Xmas
in hopes they will be loved. Money can't buy love. And neither can love buy
money.
