The Geek Syndrome

The following link has a "geek" test created by one of the admins of my favorite Aspie forum that I'll refrain from mentioning.

http://www.thegeeksyndrome.com/

I scored a 35.

90% of all of those with AS score 25 or higher.

53 on the geek syndrome test.
131 on the aspie quiz.

I think these quizes reflects my absolute lack of fashion sense. That's unless you consider a belt holstered laptop a hip fashion accessory.

It should be noted that the scoring on this test isn't particularly intelligent (upon my analysis of the JavaScript that makes it up). The maximum score is 45 (45 questions), which each question having exactly one "correct" answer. Each "correct" answer is worth exactly one point. So if you choose mostly moderate responses, you should expect to get a low score.

The test was not manually coded. It was generated by a quiz generation program.
