AS TESTS

The AQ-test (50 questions) Simon-Baron-Cohen’s AS test

Aspie-Quiz (170+ questions, may vary). NOTE: This is an AMATEUR test! It does NOT  replace a professional evaluation. High scores does NOT mean you are autistic.

The original quiz (no longer available) was a joint venture between myself and Leif Ekblad. I had found existing online tests to be frustratingly oversimplified and substandard and decided to make a new 100 question quiz (many inspired from other tests and checklists) that would both inform and give a general clue. Leif, who is an engineer and software designer, did the technical and statistical bits and hosted it on his website.

First our cooperation went well. However, soon he took over the Quiz completely and I could not do anything about it as it’s on his servers. He keeps making new versions of it, adding strange questions (to which I strongly object!), and using it as a data collecting tool to “prove” his own “Neanderthal theory of autism” rather than as the simple free quiz I intended it as. He has very absurd and racist ideas about autism which I want nothing to do with. He poses as an Aspie but does not have a diagnosis himself. He behaves more like a narcissist with adult ODD.
