I don`t expect anyone to believe me. However, I answered truthfully to all of the questions. I scored a 45. I have had several people tell me that I have the traits of autism

Do you think losing attention in a quiz about A.D.H.D is a bad thing?
I couldn`t even finish it i got bored.

I like Zys have Asperger`s but I`m social and I know the traits of Autism are being anti-social. I think that`s kind of inaccurate though... it`s not that we`re ANTI-social, people just reject us when we try to be social.

11.. i supposed as much. I don`t think the questions were very clear, enough to determine a correct answer anyway

27...I like hanging out with people, but they generally don`t like me, and that`s why I don`t like social situations very much. I do tend to notice details, but I think that`s because I have ADD like whoa, and I notice everything all the goddamn time.

Whoa, I got 32. Probably because my mother has it, my brother has it, my uncle has it, and my boyfriend has it. It kinda rubs off like that.
But I doubt I really have it. I hate routine and boring details.

Wow. I only got a 9. I guess its pretty safe to say I`m not autistic.

I had 28, but I`m an extreme introvert. I notice that the quiz will automatically score pretty high for introverts.

Autistic people are inferior and should be neutered or euthanized (along with idiots, old people, crippled, poor people, beggars, criminals, etc.), it`s the only way humanity will save itself from retrogressing.

Eugenics kick ass!

11... I guess having a bad memory doesn`t necessarily coincide with traits of autism. :-P

All of a sudden, everyone (here) is going to claim to have Autism, or some form of it.

The joy of it all.

I can say that I took care of 2 eight year old autistic twins, and they were quite a handful.

Well, I actually have Asperger`s Syndrome, which is a form of Autism. So I thought it would be higher than that.
