If anyone has any questions or anything that they don't feel comfortable talking about on the public forum, feel free to PM me. No question is too odd.

What does "hunting" refer to? I got a high score in that area, but I'm not sure what it means. Does it refer to gathering facts and information and the like?

I think so. I think it's examining things, gathering information, etc. I'm not positive.

High score in neurotypical or aspie?

Neurotypical seems to suggest "cooperative hunting" -- retains information of locations and places, and relaying of information.

My results below. It say's I'm most likely an Aspie. But I don't think I am.

I didn't study my results, didn't look at the graph or anything other than "You are most likely an Aspie" really.

bleh, it shows my .pdf as attached but it's not here. I don't feel like making it a picture so oh well.

Well, I was diagnosed with ADHD, and I have some personality traits similar to Aspie. I guess so-called "odd" people are wired similarly. I met an Autistic guy a few months back at a cookout. Was a family friend of my step-moms. I thought he was a pretty cool guy honestly. After he left people were saying he never talks to new people like that.

What can I say. It's my winning personality. :(

There's nothing wrong with us "odd" folk.

That said, I get along with the weird people better than the "normal" people.

I was misdiagnosed ADHD when I was a kid. Medicated, all that fun crap. They never seemed to figure out why none of the stuff designed to deal with ADHD didn't work right for me.

They just kept upping my Ritalin dose until I flat out told them, "I'm not taking this stuff anymore."

Never was tested, but I never gave them a real reason to test me either.

Though that quiz, when reading the pdf, seems to suggest I'm "social phobic." Which I suppose may apply to a degree.

Truth be told, most people with Asperger's develop some degree of social anxiety. I'm no exception. It ranges from mildly inhibiting to crippling, depending on the individual's tendencies or past experience. For me, it's just mildly inhibiting, making me a little more hesitant to approach people or strike up a conversation.

I'm fine with social interaction in a more familiar situation, or amongst friends.

I just don't do well in a strange situation with unknown people. By "don't do well," I mean I tend to strictly observe. The "fly on the wall" so to speak.

Once familiar with who the people are, and the general location, I slowly interact some.

I figure there's nothing wrong with it, but evidently that's supposedly "social phobia."

I'm pretty much the same way. There's a few people I'm completely comfortable with. Otherwise I tend to just watch from a distance unless forced to interact (like being put in a group) or someone approaches me. Then it's just kind of awkward. It's easier if someone asks me to join, though.

Ah, okay. I'm a pretty tactile person...Always looking at stuff, examining it, fiddling with it...Makes sense. Another thing I have...I guess you could call it a tic...I am always doing this thing with my leg when I sit...Like placing the ball of the foot on the floor and jiggling my knee up and down so my foot never leaves the ground, but my heel never hits the ground. Is that an aspie thing? I try to make myself conscious of it, but I always seem to keep doing it.
