The test needs an additional question:

"I find it easy to interpret questions so that I can provide answers that fit
my desired profile."

Definitely agree X
Slightly agree
Slightly disagree
Definitely disagree

An autistic person would (of course) take this test repeatedly, until getting
a pleasing score.

before they call him autistic?"

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience, SETI

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
