How can I recognise AS in myself or someone I know?

I don't agree with this poster. I think that presents an oversimplified stereotype of AS/Autism, and I believe that we all agree that all the things listed are generalized and really do not deal with the core values of AS. If you all know what I mean (maybe you do, maybe not).

8/10 for me
used to be 9/10.

Yes, far too oversimplified. Especially since there are auties, as above, who don't feel they fulfill all 10 but are still autistic.

9,5/10 hehe. The "unintentional rudeness" is mostly plain silence.

I think the over simplification is intended. It's not a comprehensive diagnostic, it's an attention getter so people can be aware. There is also a famous 10 question 'diagnostic' for alcoholism, too, with a notice of where you can get more information. It gets the information out there. humm. . .One in 300 seems awful high. . but - there it is!

Well, isn't the estimate for ASCs in general something like 1 in 110? So maybe 1 in 300 for AS isn't that high after all...
