I hate it when I prove Die Schwester right

There's this Asperger's Quiz

My results:
Your Aspie score: 130 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 76 of 200
You are very likely an Aspie

Which I think means I'm so Aspie I can't even translate weirdass graphs like this.

Being a girl with diagnosed AS, I can tell you the scales are usually very wrong for females, who are rare and need to be evaluated differently than the average case (who is definitely male).

*shrug* It fit ME pretty well.

Maybe this one is special and actually accurate!

Okay, so I'm less Aspie than you because I understand that graph, sort of, except for WHY THE HELL it has a section for "hunting" on it.

I know why.

Not having seen a lot of the different categories they grade Aspies in, but I know I sure as hell have hunting instincts.

Heh ... ass-graphs.

I scored 145. I... don't really know what to do about that. I don't even really know what Aspergers entails.

I think I grok the graph, but I can't fathom why anyone would present data like this for any reason ever.

Of course now I have to take this, so I can claim I have AS and everyone has to be nice to me on the internets.

Dude, most people on the internets don't know what it is, or even care if you do.

Er. It's actually a bit of a meme that a lot of particularly unsocial individuals have been known to say they have self-diagnosed Asperger's and proceed to wave it around like either a trophy or catch-all excuse.

Really now.

*shall have words with them*

That's funny, considering those of us who ACTUALLY have it generally try and get along without having tell people. Cause we'd like to, y'know, not be considered any more of a freak than we already are.

Oh, of course. But for regular people who are slightly introverted and otherwise completely uninteresting, it gives everyone a reason to pay attention to them with a minimum of effort. I guess.

The graph could use a better set of explanations, but a general translation:

The "East" side measures how close you are to the neurotypical model, with four traits that I guess are associated. The "West" side measures the same for the Aspie model. The "North" covers the intellectual end of things, the "South" the physical end of things. Thus, each quadrant shows a measurement of how close you are to the NT or Aspie model in Intellectual or Physical areas.

I think the biggest area of confusion is in the black lines connecting the salient points- the IMPORTANT information is mostly in the angles (where the black lines intersect with the "anchor" lines on the spiderweb), but I suppose having the "shape" there makes it easier to say "Hey this person's all shrivelly on the NT side and all blobby on the Aspie side, so that means... um... something!"

I guess. >_>; I only know how to read these things because they're popular in manga to show character traits, and even then they're not intended to show as much info as this is trying to.

I'm generally pretty good with graphs but I took the quiz and I don't know what the hell I'm looking at either. It said I have both Aspie and neurotypical traits. It would help if they explained what "Hunting" means and why some things appear one more than one axis (hunting, communication and talent). It's not a very good graph.
