Blimey, I got 21 ... but still too low for Aspergers!

The problem with the test was that I wanted a 'sometimes' answer that was more than 'occasionally' but less than 'often'. I picked 'often' for 'sometimes' which probably raised my score!

Most geeks have above-average intelligence and are more cerebral, which can make it harder (or more frustrating) to relate to people who just don't/can't think things through in the same logical way. When there aren't that many people at school at your intellectual level, it tends to make you more inward-focused than you would otherwise be. There are definitely kids who have some innate problem relating to people, and they're the ones with Aspergers or some other form of autism. However, I think bright kids, if they're in a small minority or on their own, can end up not learning how to relate to people (despite wanting to) because the other kids can't cope with them or understand them.

Very true there rob - especially if you then take into account things like ADHD and Dyslexia which are also over-represented in those with above average intelligence, more often than not, even if you do not have a disorder of that sort, the only ones you can have an intelligent discussion with do, leaving a  social stigma - that most don't care about.
