Aspie quiz
  • This aspie quiz was recently featured on This American Life. With the talk of Spectrum folks in the tre arrow thread, and the other thread about Meyers-Briggs, it made me want to do it.

    Feels a little insulting when you put it that way, man.
  • I've never thought about making traps. I sort of want to now. Also, when it asked if you pace, I thought about like running pace not pacing back and forth. Realized afterward.
  • I can't talk on the phone without pacing. Ok, that isn't true, I can talk on the phone without pacing, but pacing makes it a lot easier.
  • The person who made this test has a completely amazing conspiracy theory that autism correlates to Neanderthal genes.

    There are a lot of things wrong with this theory but it makes a fascinating story.
  • For example...


    The hypothesis that Neanderthals become extinct because of
    free trade is compelling and seems to match the troublesome
    situation of autistics in a more globalized world.

    Supplements of L-carnosine, carnitine and taurine, that is
    naturally occurring in a high-meat diet, has positive effects on
    autistic children.

    It is possible that the instinctive reaction of autistics when
    they hear the sound of a motor-bike triggers an ancient fear
    for cave-bears.

    Many people with AS are face blind. This is likely because the
    specialized circuit for analyzing faces is adapted to recognizing
    Neanderthal faces rather than modern human faces. Aspie-quiz
    have found that autistics rate Neanderthal faces as more attractive
    than neurotypicals.

    Neanderthals often had “rodeo-type” injuries. This probably was
    caused by wrestling large (semi) domestic animals… Autistic
    individuals frequently have unusual sensitivities for pain.
    They are both more sensitive to touch, and less sensitive to
    pain. This might have it’s origin in sexual selection, and in
    Neanderthal habits of wrestling large mammals. Possibly this
    formed a ritual where spanking were used to harden their
    bodies. This is what is manifested in the pain differences in autism.

    Violence against females, rape and infanticide are fundamentally
    incompatible with masochism.

    It’s probable that Neanderthals primary use of musical instruments
    wasn’t for entertainment or music, rather as a way to herd animals.
  • I don't get the traps thing, like, at all. Anybody got an idea, or more info?
  • I think you should get points (or not) for having the ability to finish the test.
    I just can't! Too many questions! No patience!
  • I came back to it twice. Very long. Agreed.
  • Oh my god, I thought I was the only person looking at Neanderthal porn :O

    j/k, even though I am *very likely an Aspie* I am generally able to remember faces.
  • "It is possible that the instinctive reaction of autistics when
    they hear the sound of a motor-bike triggers an ancient fear
    for cave-bears."

    I am amazed that this theory posits that neanderthals didn't die out until there was FREE TRADE????????? Wasn't that, like, 500 years ago? Seems like there'd be more documentation of this other species of humanoid running around wrestling semi-domestic animals and not raping women.
  • The traps thing is that the person who wrote the test is trying to correlate "hunting" characteristics to autism or Neanderthal genetics.
  • One of the other hunting questions is "do you have a compulsion to jump over things"
  • On the This American Life episode, this speech therapist suspects her husband of being autistic, but she doesn't take it very seriously because it's a common joke in the Autism community that if you describe typical aspie behaviors, a lot of women will say, "Oh, that sounds like my husband!"

    When she saw this test and the question about making traps, she thought it was a typo because the question was so weird, but then she showed it to her husband, who was like, "Oh my god, I think about making traps all the time!"

    Some of it is so YES, but mostly I'm just a sensitive, awkward old introvert. Who is very sensitive to sound & light, which apparently might be a whole different thing?
