Great Minds Think Alike?

I found these quizzes at Orge's.

The quizzes said he should have Asperger Syndrome cause he scored really, really low.

Well I didn't score as low, but I'm near the bottom. I'm thinking this quiz is flawed cause just about everyone is scoring low.

I scored 26 on the Empathy Quotent test

0 - 32 = You have a lower than average ability for understanding how other people feel and responding appropriately. Most people with Asperger Syndrome or high functioning autism score about 20. On average, most women score about 47 and most men about 42.

I scored 57 on the Systemizing Quotent Test:

51-80 = You have a very high ability for analysying and exploring a system. On average women score about 24 and men score about 30. Three times as many people with Asperger Syndrome score in this range, compared to typical men and almost no women score this high.

I think I scored this high because I am an engineer, we are very systematic and analytical people.

And uncaring. Don't forget uncaring!

Do you really think I care that I forgot uncaring?

I got 14 on empathy.

Everyone I read is scoring impossibly low on this. Methinks this test is a pile of crap. I can't believe that everyone I know is less sensitive than someone with freaking AUTISM.

As I said over on Contagions site, either the test is flawed or I hang with a really uncaring, autistic bunch of people.

I am frightened by which is correct.

Bah. Who cares which is correct? Not us, obviously!
