Autism


I just took this Wired AQ Test for Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome — and was only marginally above average (18).

That’s a relief — I guess my obsessive, detail-oriented nature is ‘normal’.

However, after seeing the sheer obsessive genius of Urville — a city designed by an Autistic French guy over the course of 16 years, I’m thinking the world could use a few more of this type of person.

    Autism and obsessive-compulsiveness (and OCD) are definitely NOT the same thing. So this test is meaningless… –simon

    The test comes from Cambridge’s Autism Research Centre, and is called the ‘Autism-Spectrum Quotient’.Lumping it together with obsessive behaviour was a mistake on my part, perhaps — but the test never mentions OCD.
