Vq: Vapidity Spectrum Quotient

50 Questions | Total Attempts: 44

IQ Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz measures the extent of neurodiffuse traits in adults. A score of less than 30 indicates a neurodiffusion spectrum disorder and/or Vapidity Syndrome is likely. The test is not a means for making a diagnosis, however, and many who score below 30 and even meet the diagnostic criteria for mild neurodiffusion or Vapidity report no difficulty functioning in their everyday lives. (Quiz questions are from Simon Baron-Cohen and researchers at Cambridge. )
