The Empathy thread has thrown up a lot of interesting points about interaction between people, what can be tested, and really whether all this social science stuff has any science in it at all. We've done other personality tests in the past, such as Myers Briggs, and the next obvious one that follows on naturally from the Reading Eyes test in about autism. Here's the AQ test. Let's see your results.Apologies if we've done this before. We'll do a memory test, for me, shortly.P

My score: 20"Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen and his colleagues at Cambridge's Autism Research Centre have created the Autism-Spectrum Quotient, or AQ, as a measure of the extent of autistic traits in adults. In the first major trial using the test, the average score in the control group was 16.4. Eighty percent of those diagnosed with autism or a related disorder scored 32 or higher. The test is not a means for making a diagnosis, however, and many who score above 32 and even meet the diagnostic criteria for mild autism or Asperger's report no difficulty functioning in their everyday lives."Not even close. No wonder I don't fit in very well around here.

11People who don't care about the Woolwich murder aren't autistic. They are just egoistic.

Here are the two previous Myers Briggs threads, one by "exoticow" who I have never seen here - it's an older thread and then the second thread, which was a spin off from one of Paul's Blogs.The Myers-Briggs Type IndicatorA Computer Analyzes Paul's Blog
