And in the end since you yourself put in the answers, it will only tell you how autistic, or not, you yourself perceive yourself. If the test is actually reliable, you need people that know as much as possible about you to answer the questions for you.

Don't let online tests, or things people online say, make you feel like you have a certain diagnosis. In the same way, also don't let them think the issues you are facing are not real problems that need real solutions.
I do see some traits in myself that are Asperger traits. I wouldn't mind reading about and learning what I can about how to cope with Asperger traits. I doubt that my attempting to get a diagnosis would be helpful.
