    18.

    My interpersonal intelligence is horrible... intrapersonal is pretty solid though.

    Wasn't trying to embarrass... just more results for people to look at.

    Still though I am not criticizing the overall topic as surely it will be worthy of much debate.

    I got scored basically a social retard (26 lol) which is not the case. I just don't call myself a mind-reader. People who think they are, may not be.
    I totally agree with you... mind reading isn't as easy to do correctly as some people think. I'm very skeptical about it being truly possible. So, I totally don't consider myself a mind reader, e.g. if someone has a problem, I prefer to have it all out in the open to help solve it. Or if I'm not sure about how someone feels about something or someone (including myself/something I've done) I simply ask about that. Etc. I also hate it when someone gets at me with their guesses of how I'm feeling about something or guesses about my attitude towards them.

    Btw I got 19 in this EQ test... I don't know if that's a good measure of my empathy, I don't think I'm asperger, I just prefer direct communication over all those guesses and just haven't yet tried to learn the nice way of saying things instead of saying them directly. I don't think I'm very high on empathizing either, though, so the score may not be that much off though I still find it a bit low.

    I also tried the SQ test, got 43 there. I don't see myself as an extreme systemizer so this is about right.

    I'm female so the average would be 47/24 as opposed to my 19/43.

    Again, same answer. If I answer strongly agree, I am presuming to know what people want, not actually know what they want. If you start talking to someone, of course they will likely speak back. This does not mean they wish to converse.
    Yeah I never assume anything just from the fact that they spoke. Over time if they are too silent, I do ask if they are bored to be sure they're OK with talking (maybe they just prefer listening but I can't know unless I ask... assuming they don't lie but that's their problem).


    29. I can't always see why someone should have felt offended by a remark.

    Answering this as slightly disagree vs strongly disagree again commits the error of presumption. But it raises your empathy score! I've met a lot of people who think they KNOW this stuff, but in reality, they simply project their own answers over top of another person and run with that.

    Who goes to the trouble of actually asking? That would indicate a higher empathy, to me.
    Problem for me, I don't ask if they are offended because I just don't think of that possibility. But if someone does tell me they feel offended I do like to ask more about it so I can understand them. Higher empathy though would be truly understanding their response I guess... I'm not sure I can always claim that.

    This is a huge pet peeve for me, especially people trying to guess my attitudes, feelings, or motivations. More often than not they are wrong. Why can't they just ask if it is that important? Systemizers of the world, unite!
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    As an apparent E over S, I'll say that people who jump to conclusions, in general, grate me too. One of the things that some people jump to conclusions about it another's state of mind.

    One little curl of a lip, say, is not enough information for anyone to form a conclusion that's solid enough to be voiced out. If you get some information.. for God's sake, probe a bit further before you conclude that you know someone's entire life story.

    Because if you're, y'know, wrong about someone, you haven't exactly stepped into their shoes. You haven't figured out their state of mind and thus you're not as empathic as you think you are.

    42, dead average for a male and squarely a B(alanced) type. I would agree with this score.

    WTF on a few of these questions, though. "I am at my best in the morning"? Maybe that's taken to mean that you're more in tune with a surrounding society that favors a morning person pattern, but that's a stretch.

    Err..well I got 65


    Edit:



    However, if I actively try to game the system to maximize the score, I can get right up to 78

    As other have said this more of "I think I'm this way" over "I am this way".
    For you, R.I.P. will always stand for "Return if possible" to me.

    Here's a test based on his Empathy Quotient. The test itself seems less impressive than his research overall, but.. I dunno, it's a test, and we like our tests.

    I scored 67.

    Question # 18. When I was a child, I enjoyed cutting up worms to see what would happen.



    Your score: 76
    0 - 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20)
    33 - 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42)
    53 - 63 is above average
    64 - 80 is very high
    80 is maximum


    *also agree with @eclecticreject. This test merely illustrates how I see my own empathetic capacity, not what it may objectively be. Gotta account for blind spots.
