I'm autistic

I've always suspected that I had Asperger's syndrome or some other functional form of autism. I just took some tests that confirm the diagnosis. Thanks go to eldritch_crank for the link to these tests http://growe.homeip.net/BaronCohen/MaleFemale.asp. Here are my results:

Systemizing quotient
Your score: 67
0 - 19 = low
20 - 39 = average (most women score about 24 and most men score about 30)
40 - 50 = above average (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score in this range)
51 - 80 is very high (three times as many people with Asperger Syndrome score in this range, compared to typical men, and almost no women score in this range)
80 is maximum

Autism Spectrum quotient
Your score: 33
0 - 10 = low
11 - 22 = average (most women score about 15 and most men score about 17)
23 - 31 = above average
32 - 50 is very high (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 35)
50 is maximum

Empathy quotient
Your score: 27
0 - 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20)
33 - 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42)
53 - 63 is above average
64 - 80 is very high

Reading the mind in the eyes
Your score: 19
A typical score is in the range 22-30. If you scored over 30,
you are very accurate at decoding a person's facial expressions
around their eyes. A score under 22 indicates you find this quite difficult.

my score is...
13... I guess that I expected this given my desire to be around others and an apparent need to verbally interact with others.

Re: my score is...
The fact that I can't keep these scores organized says something...
