    Also systemizer, empathy 2 and systemizing 5. Somehow i don't see myself as a systemizer either though.

    And i am not sure about the empathy. I have high empathy for certain kind of people, and not enough for others.

    And perhaps I should define what Baron-Cohen means by empathy in this context. It is cognitive empathy, the ability to read minds and respond in social contexts. He does not mean affective empathy, understanding people's feeling because of what they are experiencing. Cognitive empathy also is the ability to use this mind reading to also deceive others.

    I’m classified as S, but not very strongly, with empathy score of 3 and systemizing score of 6.

    Does anyone else get server errors when they try to do this? I've tried a few times and can never access the test- it always tells me it cannot connect to the server (my internet connection is fine).

    I can access the site no problem, but when I go through all the steps to actually take the test, the test itself won't load.

    Not sure the issue. Do you have a popup blocker or something that might be preventing the test from launching? Bit of a mystery.

    Several lol. It did occur to me that those could be the cause. The popup I get says "we can't connect to our servers" which suggests that the issue is on the test end, not my end, but who knows? I'll try an incognito window.

    Incognito window worked! Here are my results:

    Your Empathy score (EQ): 1

    Most females score 6 to 16.
    Most males score 4 to 15.
    If you score 0 to 4 you are low on empathy, and if you score 16 to 20 you score high on empathy.


    Your Systemizing score (SQ): 7

    Mot females score 2 to 9.
    Most males score 3 to 11.
    If you score 0 to 3 you are low in your systemizing drive, and if you score 12 to 20, you are high on your systemizing drive.


    Your brain type classification: Type S

    Empathy 2, systematizing 8, type S. Who has high empathy probably dosen't have ASD at all.

    Your Empathy score (EQ): 4
    Your Systemizing score (SQ): 3
    Your brain type classification: Type B

    THis does not feel quite right, certainly on the systemisation aspect. I do a lot of systemisation, but I found the questions focussed on the immediate systemisation, whereas I tend to systematise once I have gathered enough info to be able to make a system.

    The questions were well framed so that I had to think whether the positive or the negative answer was the right one.

    Apparently I'm an empathizer. I scored 7 for EQ and 1 for SQ.

    Interesting, do you have ASD at all if you are a empatizer?
