After all the recent publicity of model Heather Kuzmich, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, I stumbled across an interesting survey that determines the severity of autism/Asperger's syndrome in people. It's a 50-point questionnaire and you will receive a score at the end of the survey. Are you autistic? My score was 40.

No, I'm not female.

What does that got to do with anything?

Anyway, my score is 35. I've never been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, but given my very non-existent social skills and general shyness including problems to being assertive, go figure.
