The Broad Autism Phenotype Test

Rate this test:
  • Hi! Welcome to the Broad Autism Phenotype Questionnaire, taken from an article in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders (see http://tinyurl.com/3derhn). Ever since Leo Kanner first described autism, it's been observed that many autistics have relatives with autistic traits. Originally this was explained by the 'refridgerator mother' theory, but more recently it's been attributed instead to genetics. This questionnairre is designed to measure the mild autistic traits present in people who are not actually autistic but have a genetic predisposition to autism.

Your result for The Broad Autism Phenotype Test ...

Autistic/BAP

You scored 106 aloof, 102 rigid and 88 pragmatic

You scored above the cutoff on all three scales. Clearly, you are either autistic or on the broader autistic phenotype. You probably are not very social, and when you do interact with others, you come off as strange or rude without meaning to. You probably also like things to be familiar and predictable and don't like changes, especially unexpected ones.

Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)

  • aloof Distribution

    You scored 106% on aloof, higher than 51% of your peers.

  • rigid Distribution

    You scored 102% on rigid, higher than 64% of your peers.

Your result for The Broad Autism Phenotype Test ...

Rigid Personality

You scored 74 aloof, 87 rigid and 50 pragmatic

You scored above the cutoff for rigid personality, which means you probably don't really like changes, especially unexpected ones. You may have a daily routine that you seldom vary, dislike going to unfamiliar places or meeting new people, or have specific rules about how you do things which you refuse to change. However, you are not particularly aloof, and probably don't have much trouble with social communication. You are probably on the broader autistic phenotype.

Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)

  • aloof Distribution

    You scored 74% on aloof, higher than 12% of your peers.

  • rigid Distribution

    You scored 87% on rigid, higher than 37% of your peers.

  • pragmatic Distribution

    You scored 50% on pragmatic, higher than 5% of your peers.

  • diagnosis Distribution

    You scored 2% on diagnosis, higher than 9% of your peers.
