I'm an insensitive bastard!

Over at Ogre's I saw this post where he was talking about the Empathy Quotient test. He said he scored a 4 and I was feeling all high and mighty. I thought to myself even I'm not that bad. So I took the test... and scored a 2. A lowly 2?!?!?!?!

According to this test if you score:

0-32 = You have a lower then 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 a 42

No wonder everyone thinks I'm such an insensitive bastard! Now I understand why people fight to not be my friend!

On the Systemizing Quotient I scored a 44. This test says:

40-50= You have an above average ability for analysing and exploring a system. On average women score about 24 and men score about 30. Most people with Asperger Syndrom or High functioning Autism score between 40-50.

Okay, what the hell! I'm going to have to check into Asperger Syndrom and Autism to see exactly what it is that is going on with me!

BTW if you take the test, it has 60 questions. I got started wondering after 20.

Also I'd like to congratulate Ogre on a most interesting lay-out to his blog. I'm not sure if I like it or not yet as I'm not used to going sideways. I liked using my scroll wheel on my mouse to skim past posts I don't want to read.
