Could I have Aspergers / High Functioning Autism?

Updated: Feb 20

The Empathy Quotient (EQ) is a 60-item questionnaire developed by Simon Baron-Cohen at ARC (the Autism Research Centre) at the University of Cambridge.

Clinically, the empathy measurements provided by the EQ are used by mental health professionals in assessing the level of social impairment in certain disorders like Autism. However, since levels of empathy vary significantly between individuals, even between those without any mental health disorders, it is also suitable for use as a casual measure of temperamental empathy by and for the general population.

Take the Questionnaire.
