How neurotypical are you? :)

The word "Neurotypical" can mean many different things depending on the person using it. However, most people agree that people with autism, automatically aren't "neurotypical". and the most common usage of the word is to mean "non-autistic". Some think of being neurotypical as a "disorder" rather than autism being the "disorder".

Are you neurotypical? Is socializing important to you? Are you good at socializing? Take this test to find out! Oh, and it is important to note that this test is not meant to diagnosis you with autism and it's not meant to offend anybody. Also, it's not scientific or anything. So keep that in mind!
