The Aspie Quiz

I found this quiz online one day while I was looking around for Asperger related information.  I took it just out of curiosity to see what my results would be.  Since Asperger's and Autism are known to have a genetic component, I wanted to know if I was an Aspie too.  It certainly seems like it some times when I have anxiety and trouble dealing with stress.  (although these things only happened after I was an adult - a parent to be exact)

Today I got the Boy to take the quiz.  He's been much more sociable and relaxed these past few days.  Not to mention awake during the day instead of only at night.  We were calling him the "vampire boy" for a while.  

If you want to take the Aspie Quiz just click here.  The scores are broken down into the different areas on the chart and it was very interesting to see all the results.

I took the quiz twice on different days.  This was my results the first time I took it.  The second time I took it, I deliberately tried to get a more "Aspie" score, but I still ended up neurotypical.  The Boy was quick to point out on my results how low my Intellectual score was.  He had a good laugh at at my low intellect!  I responded "Yes, but see how physical I am!"  If I were a cave man I could really hunt some buffalo.
                                      Results- Aspie score:  60 of 200
                                      neurotypical (non-autistic) score:  145 of 200

Here is the Boy's quiz results showing what we already know.  He's an Aspie.  He's also quite intellectual.  Maybe not such a good buffalo hunter though.

                                      Results- Aspie score 122 of 200
                                      neurotypical (non-autistic) score 83 of 200
The Boy's Results =
It's a good thing we have Mexican restaurants nearby.  He and I consumed large quantities of this stuff the other day along with chips and salsa.  No buffalo.

Please share your scores in the comments if you decide to take the quiz.  Hopefully you will be more intellectual than I am.


  1. I got a 95 on the Aspie side and a 113 on the NT side. I knew that sometimes there can be hereditary elements. This was very interesting. Thanks for posting it!

    1. It is interesting to see where you fall on the chart.

  2. Here's mine:
    Your Aspie score: 69 of 200
    Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 157 of 200
    You are very likely neurotypical

    Interesting that I scored low in the talent and intellectual area (and high in the social area, and I don't consider myself very social on a daily basis). Maybe I should take it again... ;)

    1. Our scores are very close to the same. I think you are very social. Even if you prefer to be alone most of the time ( which I've never seen that in you), you still understand social cues that are harder for someone with Asperger's.

  3. That is so funny---I just did that quiz and I'm a very likely an Aspie. Imagine that, the way I narrow in on things and drive people crazy trying to figure things out...haha! I had 163 out of 200.

    1. I thought I would have a higher Aspie score than I did. I even took it twice. The second time I did have a little more Aspieish score but still was considered neurotypical. It was interesting to find out what my son would get. He's very Aspie.

  4. Well that was sure disappointing. I am just some boring old NT.

  5. I did notice our scores are very similar. :)
    I do have hermit tendencies. But I can switch to social easily, and cues, right - no problem understanding them.
    I may take the quiz again... It's really interesting.

    1. That's the way I am too. I took the quiz twice and my scores were similar both times.
