Autism test

An autism test (via Ned). I scored 33, which is into the “very high” category; apparently “most people with high functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome score about 35”. The idea of a link between hacking and autism is not a new one: a clinical psychologist has suggested that “computers were designed by and for people with Asperger’s, who seem to know the language of computers better than social or conventional languages”.

On a different note, the test is in Flash. After I’d completed it, I clicked “back” to find out where I’d found the link, and then when I went forward again, I’d lost my position in the test; I had to go through the whole fifty questions again (just clicking “Agree” this time) to get to the end screen where it tells you what the scores mean. This is why Flash is bad.
