Do you have Asperger's Syndrome?

On The Busybody, Loren Rosson points to a test which asks What's Your AQ?. You can take the test and find the answer. I find that I come out with a pretty low score of 13, a long way below the requisite 32-50 that might indicate Asbergers; indeed I appear to score much lower than the average male or female computer scientist (21), and a bit lower than the average man (18) and the average woman (15).

I scored 15, which, according to the scale, is "Average woman, and average male or female biologist" -- very fitting as I am a female with a bachelors in biology and a post-graduate diploma in biomedicine.

I scored a 25, which is quite high, but not near the cutoff.

19 here - 'average scientist'.

Hah.

I scored 33...

I am not amazed though, I've always had a tough time in social situations or relating to others, making people understand me is extremely difficult for me too, and I knew it wasn't "shyness", I guess it makes sense.
