Asperger syndrome
is an autism spectrum disorder, and people with it therefore show significant difficulties in social interaction, along with stereotypies and other restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported.[1][2]

Asperger syndrome is also called Asperger's syndrome,[1] Asperger (or Asperger's) disorder,[3][4] or just Asperger's.[5] It is named after the Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger who, in 1944, described children in his practice who lacked nonverbal communication skills, demonstrated limited empathy with their peers, and were physically clumsy.[6] Fifty years later, it was standardized as a diagnosis, but questions about many aspects remain.[7] For example, there is lingering doubt about whether it is distinct from high-functioning autism (HFA);[8] partly because of this, its prevalence is not firmly established. The exact cause is unknown, although research supports the likelihood of a genetic basis; brain imaging techniques have not identified a clear common pathology.[1]

There is no single treatment, and the effectiveness of particular interventions is supported by only limited data.[1] Intervention is aimed at improving symptoms and function. The mainstay of management is behavioral therapy, focusing on specific deficits to address poor communication skills, obsessive or repetitive routines, and physical clumsiness.[9] Most individuals improve over time, but difficulties with communication, social adjustment and independent living continue into adulthood.[7] Some researchers and people with Asperger's have advocated a shift in attitudes toward the view that it is a difference, rather than a disability that must be treated or cured.[10]

Yikes! :) I'm Aspie AND neurotypical!

What to do? Ya know dsenette, you could have added that the quiz/questionnaire was 165 questions long!!! Then again, now that I think about it... I didn't have anything to do today anyway. So, what the heck!

Your Aspie score: 93 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 126 of 200
You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits

Do I have to report myself to some organization?

This site has to be bogus. If you look at the graph of my last post, it listed me as 'almost' NOT having any talent. Have you visited my (old, let it be at that) website? Klick on here and you'll see my creations. Just sorry that I haven't had the opportunity to further excel myself since the last paintings. My apartment where I live in now doesn't give you the room to allow this.

you obviously don't understand how psychological tests evaluate the scores....they're not saying you don't have "talent" (which by the way is COMPLETELY unmeasurable or quantifiable)...it says that your talents (as assessed by the given test) lie in a range that is either consistent with those who have aspbergers...or those who don't (or in your case....both)

as a note....this isn't one of those game quizzes like the "are you a nerd" test....this is actually an autism/asperger's study and information website...so the stuff you put in there get's put into a database to aggregate demographic information for scientific study....so you might not want to lie about anything there.....i think there was an "other" selection...which is usually what you should choose when you don't want to put the truth
