Sure, all music geeks are fucked in the head. But how fucked up are you?

Take the test.

Scored 10. Less 'aut' than the core group average. Wow, all hail me < / sarc>

21 here too.

I am glad this is some kind of proper scientific test and not a take-the-piss one. That said is Simon Baron-Cohen any relation to the guy who plays Ali G?

This is just like all those times I diagnosed myself as having Asperger's.

I am pretty convinced that I have Asperger's Syndrome but then I have wrongly convinced myself that i've had mental diseases before.

I'm not good at visualizing and I'm not good at remembering numbers (nor particularly excited by them). Maybe I am just autistic and stupid.

Which is weird, 'cuz I was "diagnosed" with autism by my 2nd grade teacher. Was a total basket case back then. Wouldn't talk to other kids, just sat in my chair rocking back 'n' forth, enjoyed only plastic car model kits.

Guess I got over it, eventually, with the aid of drugs and alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol. If only we'd had Jim Beam in the 2nd grade...

I scored 36, which is what I got the last time I took this test.

I'm getting better - I got 30 this time round. Some of the questions are a bit suspect or open to interpretation (do you like being in social situations? - well that depends, I hate making social chitchat with people I don't know or don't like, I like spending time with a few close friends and talking rubbish over a beer. Is that a yes or a no?)

fuck Simon Baron-Cohen.. just saying. And even my partner who used to read his books and quote from them knows he's a crank and a waste of space know.

That AQ test is some bad old clickbait imo, what like anyone who is slightly obsessive or socially awkward or introverted, routine driven - which is a lot of neurotypical ppl - oh I always knew there was something different about me!
