Are you on the autism spectrum?

This quiz will allow you to understand what symptoms might indicate you are autistic. It will also let you know if you share symptoms that autistic people do. This was made for entertainment as well, so please do not take the results as diagnostic material. If you score high, you are more likely to be autistic, that does not mean you are or aren't though.

If you are autistic, feel free to tell me where my quiz could have used improvement in accuracy in the comments. Also, I encourage everyone to post their score and what you were expecting. Any suggestions are welcomed.
