Empathy and Systemizing Quotients

EQ score = 3

On average, most women score about 47 and most men about 42. Most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20.

0-32 = You have a lower than average ability for understanding how other people feel and responding appropriately.

SQ score = 25

On average women score about 24 and men score about 30.

20-39 = You have an average ability for analysing and exploring a system.

Hey, I just saw your post on this whole "Marriage is Love" thing, and I wanted to let you know that, at the very least, I agree with you and I can't say I'm enjoying how quickly the thing is spreading. Oh well. Anyway... that's it.

Thank you for saying so. The way this is spreading is nearly as scary for me as any kind of fanatism...

And thank you for commenting on my journal. :D I'm sort of amazed someone who didn't want to "correct" me commented at all. But, yes. Thank you, thank you.

Yeah, those Ancient Greeks sure knew their stuff. Creative planner / glomy nitpicker, that about says it. *grin*
I took that test . . . I got a 14 for empathy and a 58 for strategy. An "extreme S-type brain", apparently. So, I'm autistic?
