I didn't score anything! After I answered all the questions, I couldn't see the result.

Here's a screenshot

Anyway, I think I scored very high, I always score high!  cheesy Cool

EDIT;
The screenshot link works kinda, it just displays the wrong image. Sorry about that, I forgot to keep that one imag when cleaning the directory.

I was chatting with someone while taking it, and mis-clicked several times.  I think that my score of 24 is low, I blame my autism for not taking the test right.

I got a 13. For the first time in my life I'm normal! It's interesting that just a couple years ago some of my answers would have been much different and my score would have been higher. I guess that's a sign that I've become more mentally stable. Hooray!

The question about whether or not I was fascinated by dates was tricky for me. I wasn't sure what kind of dates it meant. I am truly fascinated by dating--the act of going out with/getting to know better a member of the opposite gender--but not so much with the edible dates or dates on a calendar.

I figured it meant calendar dates, but it was amusing to consider answering the question for the fruit or getting-to-know-you types.

26
but then I began thinking carefully about what that means to me and how it would affect my position as center of the universe and now my wife tells me that she couldn't break into my train of thought for three days, did I mention that my wife couldn't break into my train of thought for three days, no not for three days, but that was okay because otherwise I'd have had to take time to meet my subjects guests and I don't like them anyway...

14. But I know myself I should be a bit higher, not too much so (I hope).

Just out of curiosity how did people answer these questions ?

I found myself consciously trying to go for a quick gut reaction to the questions but it was hard to resist the 'what do they expect ...' or 'what do I think I should ...' temptations.

Do you think the scoring system takes into account human nature ?

Excellent point Carol and that's why I suspect my real score would be higher. For most questions it was clear what direction the different answers would push you towards.
