Anyone involved with geeks will know that we share many character traits with those suffering Asperger syndrome: obsessive attention to detail, social awkwardness, and some difficulty relating to other people. A few years ago, I ran across a test used to diagnose Asperger syndrome, and was surprised to note that it seems like a thumbnail description of your average geek.(via The Daily Dish)
Eek. There I was going along, thinking how normal my responses felt... and 30.
Where was the prompt, "I have difficulty with fine gradations between 'slightly agree' and 'slightly disagree'?" I think I would have liked a neutral option on many of those.
Further, while I guess I could go investigate further, I'm not that interested. However, I am concerned that this says that I am only one point less weird than you, Sam.
Fuck, I scored a 12. I guess I definitely am not a geek... :P
I scored 11...
I am not surprised by Greg or Ivan's scores, but I would have thought you would have been a bit more of a geek Llew! :-)
wow... i shit you not... i answered with complete honestly, actually taking a couple seconds to make sure that i answered truthfully....and i also scored a 31.
Wow. You hide your geekness well!
i always knew i was type-a and had some level of OCD, but not to this extent...
Now that you know, you are going to start sorting the food on your plate into alphabetical order before eating it. Just watch!
