Hasn't anyone here taken this test ?

I scored a 65. The test didn't take 20 minutes.
[quote] Even with the best of social skills, someone who is not totally comfortable among a group of people will have difficulty being himself or herself - this doesn't seem to be the case with you however, at least not all the time. You are generally at ease in circumstances in which you are expected to mingle. While you may feel a little self-conscious at first, you can usually settle down once you get used to a person or a social circumstance. Like learning to drive or working a muscle, being comfortable in social situations takes time to develop. Don't allow uncomfortable social situations you faced in the past to sidetrack you. Keep working on your social skills and continue exposing to yourself to a variety of new social situations.

Social situations don't bring out the best in you - you just don't feel at ease in circumstances in which you are expected to mingle. Even with the best of social skills, someone who is not comfortable among a group of people will have difficulty being himself or herself, and you may feel that this is the case with you. Your discomfort may have arisen as a result of being self-conscious of the way you act around others. This hesitation can create an uncertain vibe around you, making it less likely that people will approach you because of your uncomfortable demeanor. It doesn't have to be this way, however. Like learning to drive or working a muscle, being comfortable in social situations takes time to develop. Don't let this discourage you, and don't allow uncomfortable social situations you faced in the past to sidetrack you. Keep working on your social skills and exposing to yourself to new social situations, a little bit at a time.

Was there any analysis for the scores? I saw only the rather all purpose generalities that R3 cited. And some links to register to receive other info, though not from my hurried reading a specific response to my score?

I got a 45:
[quote]You either feel comfortable in some social settings and ill-at-ease in others, or you're just someone who generally needs time to settle in and familiarize yourself with a social situation before you can relax. Overall, you may feel awkward when you first meet people but eventually loosen up once you get to know them. This isn't a problem per se, unless you feel that this timidity or hesitation holds you back. Like learning to drive or working a muscle, it's normal that being comfortable in social situations takes time to develop. Don't let this discourage you, and don't allow uncomfortable social situations you faced in the past to sidetrack you. Keep working on your social skills and exposing to yourself to new social situations, a little bit at a time.

63. Higher than I expected, to be honest.

R19 I scored 88 and was surprised, too. If I had taken this quiz ten—even five—years back, I would have scored 30 or so. I was always good in social situations because of my work responsibilities, which included a lot of social events and engaging with strangers/active listening. But none of it was particularly authentic.
I recently cleared ten years of divorce, debt, job loss, illness, and death. Now I have love, health, money, and Lexapro and I enjoy being in the moment more. I’ll enjoy it while I have it!

I received a 55, but I was told I need to be more tactful and sympathetic to other people's problems.
Like I fucking care!! Seriously, if personal problems get to me at my level, there is an issue.

88 which surprised me. As they say, I am totally at ease in social settings, so why isn't it a 98?

I received an incredibly low score but it was no surprise. As being one of those awkward gay Aspies (but without the wretched desire to embrace every letter of the alphabet soup, color my pubes, etc., I'm just gay), I am just what I am and I'm fine with that.

How socially awkward are you around groups of random straight people?
How comfortable were you with Misty who could get you fired by whispering you were gay? Nobody likes Misty since she locked herself into the trash room so she needs a whipping boy, somebody to dump on!

I got a 27. I’m not surprised I’ve always felt like I just can’t relate to most people and don’t enjoy being around them. Even as a very young child I felt that way.. My family thinks I’m an undiagnosed autistic and maybe they’re right.

I got a 12, and I was surprised it was that high. Aspie here. Is thought it would be closer to 3, but I have learned coping mechanisms.

I got a 40. I had to laugh at question #50 “When it comes to conflict…”. I chose response “I accept that other people have viewpoints that different than mine.” However, I know that many people on DL would have to choose “I find it extremely difficult to accept that others have different viewpoints, and that we could both be right.”
Just today, seeing people treat different viewpoints on DL as an existential crisis and them going into a meltdown.

I got a 23, which seems about right. It's not that I don't know HOW to act in social situations, it's that I so rarely feel at ease in them. My 73 in Diplomacy seems to verify that.

I scored a 30, OP. Social events are not my forte, but I can improve, say the test results.
I’m mostly introverted but very empathetic as a communicator. Decently good social skills but do get tense in situations and I’m sure others pick up on it.
