People who have spent a lot of time with me will know that I occasionally become convinced that I have Asperger's Syndrome. I was a very maladjusted child, I place a little too much emphasis on routine, I get obsessed with patterns and puzzles, and I have the keenly calibrated social sense of someone who tells Yo Mama jokes at a Black Panther meeting.

So when the opportunity arose, I completed this test for Asperger's and other Autistic Spectrum Disorders. And here are my results.

There are two things I can take from this. One, I don't have Asperger's. Two, I am nevertheless more autistic than the average math contest winner.

I don't know whether to jump for joy or punch myself in the head.

I scored 16. Clearly my inner geek is still on holiday!

I have a friend who is a teacher and maintains that everyone is autistic, some of us are just more autistic than others.

And I scored 12.

I ended up with 12. I'd not really have pegged myself as such a social butterfly. Eviscerate the proletariat!

I might need to write a country and western song: "I'm So Blue Because Everyone is Less Autistic Than Me (Yee-Har!)"

Well shit. I'm in the 32-50 range.

You are all freaks. Do you never go out? How do you remember all those number things? I am the most anal, antisocial, bookish type I know, and I got a 9. ( though I must admit I dont even know my own phone number, and I do know others who can remember not just theirs but mine as well)
