yay, high-functioning autism!

http://growe.homeip.net/BaronCohen/MaleFemale.asp has been making the rounds as of late; when taken together, the test results seem to give a fairly decent set of indicators as to whether you're in the ever-so-fun autistic spectrum. In my case, the results are a little bit skewed since I have ADD as well; I'm able to empathize much, much better than an average Aspie (although I still can't interpret what it means a great deal of the time.)

It's going on three am, so I'll write up my 'what it means to be an Aspie' entry later; the short version is "It means you're often socially clueless; it doesn't mean you have license to be an asshole."
