Despite its questionable grounding in science, the rdos test does appear to identify a difference between neurotypicals and aspies.(Musings of an Aspie has written a balanced review of it here.) Probably the most popular feature of the rdos test is the results graph, which provides a useful visual reference to those of us who like that sort of thing.Even the research team acknowledge the results are only “averages” so don’t pay too much heed if your own results are different from what you expected.Dyslexia and Dyspraxia One or both of these conditions often go hand-in-hand with Asperger’s.One of the first ways an undiagnosed aspie might try to determine his or her likeliness of having Asperger’s syndrome, is by taking one of the online tests.Some of these are better than others, and caution should be taken when considering the results – particularly if you find yourself worrying that your results don’t match with those of other aspies.Employers are expected to close the loop when someone sends them business correspondence, which is what a job application is.With online dating, there’s more of a cultural norm (among most people, at least) that if you’re not interested, there’s no need to respond to say that; it’s okay to just delete the message.
