True that. I think my being so shy and withdrawn with no help from parents on developing social skills really hindered my development. I have come a long way since then and just keep striving forward.

I hate labels though, when I think of someone with aspergers it's in a negative light. We all have challenges though.
-----------------

So much of that test applies to introverts who might not have any real asperger's traits. I dislike large social function, cocktail parties, etc. But I also don't remember numbers and stuff like that. My score was 25 - probably totally driven by my introversion.
