Most of the people in my family, including my parents, think I'm either on the spectrum in a minor or major way. I don't believe I am. Is there any way to tell without getting a professional diagnosis? Is there some way to figure this out, or some list of traits that I can match myself to? I've taken the tests online and they all say I don't have it, but I know online tests can be unreliable.

I definitely have some communication issues and occasionally I see the world in a different way than other people, but I see "aspergers" as being the 40 year old virgin who loves trains and lives with his mom, which isn't me as I'm definitely an extrovert and it's never been hard for me to meet new people.

It is virtually impossible to tell high-functioning Aspergers from run-of-the-mill nerdy or socially awkward guy.

So what does it matter? Who needs labels?

Not really. No reliable ones.

I suggest getting a professional screening. I had to, several years back, and although it turned up a number of other issues, it didn't find any form of autism. This came as a surprise to a number of people. The same could happen in your case.
