I need data like zombies need brains

I got a 27 on that test. But I know that I'm an unreliable narrator on tests like these.

What's really interesting is to have someone else, preferably an S.O. who has some intuitive sense of you, take the test FOR YOU/ABOUT YOU.

At least one of the AD/HD tests emphasize this. The doctor may rely more on what others report of your behavior than of your own report. Anyway, it's an interesting perspective to gain (and perhaps attempt to assimilate).

I want some quick, easy, PalmOS-based apps that will quiz me on things like this so I can have a sample over spans of time.

34 (so, does that make me autistic, or social-phobic?)

The questions on the test are entirely too vague to actually be pulling for "autism." Definitely more "autistic traits," and many of those traits are also evident in ADHD . . . the disorders are frequently misdiagnosed for each other. In a lot of ways, putting just this out on the web is kinda silly - there is much more to an autism diagnosis than the social & pragmatic issues . . .

but it's interesting nonetheless.

For the record, I don't mean to be anything more than silly by pointing to the test. The disclaimer at the top of the test, though, says as much.

More evidence that you aren't austistic. ;-)

eh, not necessarily - I have a few autistic kiddos who read social cues fairly well (they're more Aspberger's Syndrome, actually).
